How do you handle talking to a parent when they are politically opposite of you?
DUCHESSA comments on Feb 18, 2018:
I say what I think....If the other person is willing to debate....is fine...if he/she becomes out of line I make an about face and I go in my merry way. The age / relationship with the other person is of no importance when he/she becomes offensive.
Not long ago....when I was malevolent and loved to upset believers...I posted this meme in another ...
DUCHESSA comments on Feb 18, 2018:
LOL, I was belted left and right....but few members confessed to me -privately- they also were Atheists.

DUCHESSA comments on Feb 18, 2018:
Did it ever occur to you those girls are afraid to meet you -and others- because this world is full of dangerous people and they are being polite to you?

DUCHESSA comments on Feb 18, 2018:
Does it matter what better means for the other person? What counts is what it means to you...what makes you feel complete, happy, at peace with yourself.

DUCHESSA comments on Feb 17, 2018:
Would you believe me if I mention that the last school shooting could have been prevented? No, no by confiscating guns but by arresting the guy...since the FBI has info. on him. BTW. about assault weapons....yes, these ones shouldn't be available to civilians.

DUCHESSA comments on Feb 17, 2018:
LOL...Take it as a compliment. The only believer in my family is my younger cousin -a Roman Catholic priest. I had the pleasure of being unfriended by him after I posted everything you can think of against religion during a year..
How do I back out gracefully?
DUCHESSA comments on Feb 17, 2018:
She may not be trying now to convert you but she will.....and if her actions already make you uncomfortable the feeling will be worse pretty soon. I would tell her directly that you don't feel it's wise to share time together any longer.

The kids paradox
DUCHESSA comments on Feb 16, 2018:
If a person decides he / she doesn't want kids....why said person gets involved with one who does want them? Why to start a relationship with a negative marker? Unless, of course. one of the members in the relationship is planning to change the other's mind....which is indeed another negative.

DUCHESSA comments on Feb 15, 2018:
The first school shooting took place in the XVIII century. XIX century During the 19th century there were 28 shootings: break-down The first shooting was during the year 1840, later shootings occurred during the years 53, 56, 58, 60, 64, 67 (3 shootings), 68, 71, 72, 73, 74 (2), 78, 79, 81 (2), 82 (2), 83 (2), 84 (3), 87, 89, 90 (2), 91 (2), 92 (2), 93, 94, 98. I could post the ones during the XX century but you get my point.

DUCHESSA comments on Feb 14, 2018:
Sounds like "I want two coffees...one suspended." A person pays for two coffees but only takes one....the other will be given -for free- to a person who can't afford one and is freezing his/her tail.

DUCHESSA comments on Feb 14, 2018:
As long as no adult in the school is telling her to be a Christian.
I don't understand why people try to force their beliefs on others. I don't care what other people ...
DUCHESSA comments on Feb 14, 2018:
I guess believers feel is their obligation to try to convert you...but don't you dare to a) ignore them or b) try to express your way of thinking. They get offended. To me -please, don't belt me- a person who believes in fairy tales is an ignorant...and ignorance is daring.....So, don t get upset for what a person says / does. I know is difficult to move on because one gets saturated of walking away from them.
Does anyone else do culture immersion when you travel?
DUCHESSA comments on Feb 14, 2018:
Except in USA, I never had the chance to live long enough to "get immersed" in a country's culture. I envy you all the languages you speak. BTW, As you know, most immigrants to USA don't get involved in the country' s culture. I had students (HS) who were here for over five years and only spoke the mother tongue (Ukrainian, Russian, Italian, Spanish...) and that never left their "ethnic corner of the city".
Cremation or burial for your funeral?
DUCHESSA comments on Feb 13, 2018:
Why to worry about something you won't witness?
What's the difference between Hispanic and Latino?
DUCHESSA comments on Feb 13, 2018:
Hispanic comes from Hispania....which was the original name of Spain during the Roman Empire. Years later Hispania (Latin) became España (which means Spain). IAW, Hispanos were the men / women born in Hispania. Today is "España / españoles". Latino is a race / ethnic. I am Latina and although I speak Spanish (born in Argentina) I am not of Hispanic origin because my family is from France... The names of other two Roman Empire's provinces were Lusitania (Portugal), Galia (France) and I don't remember the other names.

Which do you think should play a bigger role in your life tolerance or compromise
DUCHESSA comments on Feb 10, 2018:
It all depends in what must be tolerated and/or compromised. I won't tolerate ignorance....and I won't compromise unless the other person does too.
Living alone
DUCHESSA comments on Feb 10, 2018:
Well, I will never live again with a person...I am too free and independent to be subject to another person's ways.

Nudists?
DUCHESSA comments on Feb 10, 2018:
In this long thread about Nudism nobody has commented / asked about the participation of kids in Nudist resorts. Yes, many parents bring thiur babies, toddlers, young kids to the resorts.....specially those resorts that are family oriented.

Am I still single because my face is that hideous?
DUCHESSA comments on Feb 10, 2018:
I am not a doc but your condition must be rearer than the others....by far; 20 surgeries are "one too many". BTW, I don't know if I am pretty or ugly but I have been called ugly all my life.... What counts is what you are as a person.
How can atheist make this world a better place?
DUCHESSA comments on Feb 10, 2018:
By saying "I am an Atheist". This will bring - eventually- the courage in others who are also Atheists but afraid to tell it to the world. Safety in numbers is great.
It is extremely annoying when people on social media say "Sending prayers your way"(SPYW) as if ...
DUCHESSA comments on Feb 9, 2018:
What's annoying is that they believe the have the right to send them ...Another one is when they say "I will pray for you." as soon as you tell them you are an Atheist. Once, a very adamant guy said to me "I am praying for your salvation." My answer was not nice but realistic. I said "You better pray for your daughter...who us 14 y/o, pregnant and with no hubby on site."
Would you consider having sex with a bearded man?
DUCHESSA comments on Feb 9, 2018:

Worst qualities
DUCHESSA comments on Feb 9, 2018:
Depression and anxiety are not qualities -good / bad- but conditions and must be treated professionally....as well as is to be "too" emotional;. Judgmental? Yes, that is a bad quality that, also, can be treated professionally and can be "solved" with a lot of work on your part. No the sharpest tool? Well, to recognize our own "bad things" shows we are not as dummies but smarter that we were led to believe. BTW, my worse quality is my inability to forgive a person who hurt me intentionally.

The Reasons This Year's Flu Season Has Been Devastating Are, Yes, Mostly Your Fault
DUCHESSA comments on Feb 9, 2018:
I got the flu for the first time this year in 37 years....and only couple of times when I was a kid. I was never vaccinated and I never will.
We often take English for granted. But very few people speak English in countries where I've lived....
DUCHESSA comments on Feb 9, 2018:
There are countries that teach several languages -mostly for the proximity among them - and for general education, I began to study English when I was a kid because my parents decided it was the right thing to do....but I also learned French -not as well- in regular school and Italian in the university (because I wanted). Now, to pretend that people in other countries -with an official language established by the Constitution- speak English for the convenience of Americans is not only a little too much but begs the question "Why Americans do not learn a second / third language fluently? "

Can black people be racist?
DUCHESSA comments on Feb 7, 2018:
The worst discrimination-the only one- I experienced in USA comes from the Latinos; they can't take the fact I speak Spanish because I am blonde and I have blue eyes. No one day goes by w/o one of them telling me "You look like a "gringa." Ignorance, my friend, moves both ways.

DUCHESSA comments on Feb 6, 2018:
To debate about god...or any other imaginary thing...is a waste of intelligent time. Whenever a person attempts to talk to me about the bible -for instance- I tell them I have my own "bathroom" paper. Several people have asked me "How is the Pope?" since he is from my other country.

If you could change your legal name easily and for free, would you? If so, to what?
DUCHESSA comments on Feb 5, 2018:
To change your name (first and/or last) is not difficult...takes a lawyer and some time but is relatively easy to do. There are many reasons to change your legal name...the ones that I go with are a) if your name lends itself to bullying or b) if you want to separate yourself from your family.
