And this is coming from the king studman himself. One look into his eyes and all prurient thoughts come running down from the hills.

The first thought/image that came to my mind was Laura Bush. Captain Studman Dave W just didn't occur to me and now I wonder where he finds the time.

I see. So, depending on the eyes, having sex with men does appeal to you.
Ah, a relative level of appeal is replaced with some absolute standard in order to score rhetorical points. Bravo, Bill, for expressing your dishonesty so freely.

Not in this context, but nice try.

I would not have guessed that of you.
What would it matter?

Depends on the context. But I never said it mattered anyway, those are your words. If having sex with men who have lively eyes appeals to you it does not matter to me one iota, other than I find it disgusting but that is just personal opinion. I just would not have guessed that it would have before we had this conversation. I guess I learned something new today.

Each to his own I guess.
Yeah, that's what "whatever creams your Twinkie" means.

So we agree. But the overriding question here is that, if a man, who is sexually attracted to other men with lively eyes, creams his Twinkie, using a special tool that was created and given to him by a friendly chimpanze, all while standing knee deep in a man made pond, is this a natural or unnatural action?

But you do purposefully offend others.
Yes, about stupidity that they've chosen for themselves.

And as usual I am sure that you have deemed yourself the final arbitrator on what is considered stupid.

How did you come to draw the line of offending others at one's sexual proclivities? What's so sacred about that?
It's largely not chosen. Do you think people decide to be turned on by bacon?

It depends on the context.



I hope you didn't miss the sarcasm.

And I hope the same for you.

Now that is an interesting take. Maybe you should share with the rest of us whatever it was that you smoked at lunch time.





Captain Studman Dave W

Oh yes, given what a fine specimen he is himself, he has the ability to critique just about anyone based on their lively eyes, or the lack there of, alone.

Is should be noted that I have never seen a picture of Dave so I am just assuming by the way he critiques others eyes and sexual appeal that he himself is rather fond of his own lively eyes and sexual appeal. How silly would it be for him to critique others if he had dead eyes and no sexual appeal himself?



just didn't occur to me and now I wonder where he finds the time.

Well according to his wife he is willing to lose sleep in order to give more time to his hobbies and adventures. He is dedicated I have to give him that.

It obviously matters to you, since you spent the time and effort to type a comment about it. And you keep on talking about it. It's like you can't stop talking about how unimportant it is for you. Go ahead: let's see some more remarks about how unremarkable it is.

Yes, I am the final arbiter of what I consider stupid.

So the argument is that if one does not carry trait X, one should not criticize others about trait X. By this logic, you shouldn't ever criticize science or liberal politics, Bill. And since you're not a rich environmentalist, you shouldn't criticize Al Gore.

The only thing that mattered to me was the fact that I would not have guessed that from you. You then want to keep asking me why it matters?

Yes, I am the final arbiter of what I consider stupid.

But that was not the original context you used.

No, the point is that I find it entertaining that you, the bleeding heart that you are, are critique people on of all things, looks.

Show me where I've critiqued anyone based on their looks. Saying that I find certain things to be turn-offs for me is not a critique of any other person. If I'd said that Bachmann's dead eyes should deter people from voting for her, you'd have a point.

On that radio program, toward the end one of the political scientists made a comment that often women voters are reluctant to vote for women candidates if they fear the candidate isn't high enough quality and will therefore hurt the cause of women's rights by confirming negative stereotypes. The same political scientist commented that until we have enough women represented across the political spectrum, we shouldn't be "picky". (She was basically saying we should vote for the likes of Bachmann just because they are women.)

So then there's this.

Yeeeeaaah, it's pretty damn clear that the ONLY reason Bachmann is even a contender is because she's a hot chick, because she's obviously also a moron. The women's movement needs more Olympia Snowes and Hilary Clintons. No more fucking Bachmanns and Palins. Those types DO hurt the women's movement by making women look bad.
