"Yeah, I'm picky because of sensitivities/allergies (only go out rarely and when I really have to because of it too), but I get the least offensive thing on the menu, maybe make a minor substitution if I have to (usually rice for veggies) and…"
"Biggest pet peeve: people who refuse to believe me about something that there is no question I know more about. Good example: (P=person, M=me)
P: What kind of dogs are those?M: Greyhounds. They're retired racers.
P: They're so…"
"I think it's all in the relationship.
I personally asked my fiance to stop watching porn about six months into our relationship because he couldn't stop trying to get me to do things he'd seen in porn, despite the fact that I kept…"
"One point I will make is that while there are certainly paedophiles who are attracted to children honestly (want to have loving relationships with them), there are also some that are more attracted to the power, defilement or other very negative…"
"I come from Canada, so I've been in a system that most view as inherently more "socialist" than that of the States. That being said, I've never received anything from the system that every other Canadian hasn't. …"
"I am a meat-eater who eats about 1/2 the meat that the "average" person eats and only eats humanely raised and killed meat. I'd go vegetarian (and would become vegan by default, as I can't eat eggs, dairy, etc as it is) if I…"

"I don't know what Indiana is like but percentage-wise, I know as many atheist females as I do males. I, however, know more unaffiliated and/or uncaring males and more religious females. Now, more of my atheist male friends participate in an…"
"One reason I love not living in the same country as these people; we might not be able to stop them from doing this once they're in but we're well within our rights to keep them out of our country. Conversely, I was asked to leave my last…"
"Considering there were probably a dozen other religious mid-winter celebrations before Christmas, I have no problem celebrating "Christmas". I get "Merry Christmas" cards for my parents and my boyfriend's Mom (all…"
