I just blocked two people which is a rarity for me. One moron talking about the 'queers' and how he keeps his sexuality at home and does not announce it to the world. The other talking about how he hates God and how is it that a lesbian can find a wife and he can not. Very disturbing and I am making an effort to not have that shit pop up when I am on here. Not what we need in this already crazy world.
So what if the man is jealous of lesbians? He displayed courage and honesty in expressing his feelings and was met with a barrage of demonizing and racist responses.
I’d think that someone with truly liberal characteristics would have engaged in conversation. Nothing but paper liberals around this joint apparently.
Block away. I am probably the king of blocking on this site. You can't fix stupid so block it. If enough people block them, eventually they will go away. These people who say they need to hear these people to know what is going on must not be paying attention to what has been going on in the world since recorded history. I don't need my alerts or the posts I see cluttered with stupid. Never feel bad about blocking. You do it in the real world, so you might as well do it here also.
I haven't blocked anyone because I want access to as much as possible. I'm too curious. I can always click to the next post. I do that with people in person too, and perhaps make some questionable decisions as a result. It's your business to decide how you want to manage your own experience here.
Guy #1: I take it he is something other than hetro and still in the closet. So he’s a wee bit jealous of those that have the courage to live their truth.
Guy #2; He can’t get laid because he thinks women should take care of him - cook, clean, sex, maybe even financially. He needs to look at himself and work on being a decent human being
I saw the one about lesbians but not the first one you mentioned. I thought when I first joined this site that members here would be more enlightened but soon found out they (we) are just a mix of everything as in the rest of the world. I was annoyed or offended often but now more relaxed and just ignore. Unless it's a personal attack, then the blocking hand comes down. I chose to just ignore and walk away from the lesbian post. But, you do what you feel is best for you and blocking is a power you have been given to utilize here.
The "Bad actor" phenomena is an atrocity because prevents people with opposing viewpoints from critically examining the evidence thus making it nearly impossible for anyone to seriously consider and understand another perspective. If someone has a genuine argument or idea about anything, they can ruin the entire topic for others by saying something dumb that they most likely don't fully understand themselves. Bad actors construct their own straw men.
oh either the guy jealous of lesbians has blocked me or he has deleted his post. i forget his name so i can't check to see if i can still see his page (which would mean it was the post) or not (so it was me -- and probably almost everyone who commented).
p.s. i think the post got deleted. not sure, though, for the above reasons.
oh i know who you mean in the latter case. i have not blocked him because i am still busy countering his ridiculous claims, not for his benefit but for the benefit of those who might even begin to give credence to his nonsense.
i have not seen the first guy you mentioned but i bet he is totally wrong about keeping his sexuality at home. guys like that hit on girls; he is displaying his heterosexuality. if he is with a girl and holding her hand, or touching her in a possessive way, he is displaying his heterosexuality. if he's holding hands with her, he is. if he whistles, he is. he is lying to himself as well as to everyone else. straight people don't even THINK about that. we just feel free to be ourselves in public.
