The Lounge / Jamie Out

No, not out of the closet.

I'm out, as in leaving. This place is a dump. It's our dump, and I've always known it was a dump. It's fools who find the fantasy of a fucking flat earth more comforting than the reality of a round one. It's desperate people who find a global, evil entity more comforting than a truly rudderless world.

But I sat comfortably on this trash heap of a forum with the rest of you. Now I don't feel so much like this place is very welcoming to me or holds anything more.

So anyways, I won't be posting anymore and you won't be seeing me. Goodbye, and good luck.

Oh, and obligatory:

repubs make the best drama karens.
this one just so happens to also be gay, so dramatic flare can be expected.... oooooooooooo are gay jokes allowed.
probably not.

Dude...

Believe me, Space C*nt already called me a rapist pedophile, so being called a fag is more in the realm of what I'm used to.

P.S. Nice performance of outrage! Turn it down a notch, and think about what I said. I don't want to insinuate that you are a supporter of pedos, I want you to realize that just because one of them claims to be trans that it means he really is trans.

Okay, that's that then.

It truly is incredible. I don't know if I can blame it on religion, but I find it difficult to understand how otherwise decent people can justify flashers and pedophiles. Self ID makes it so simple for the abusers to do this, and it is bizarre to me that people think they won't, and that they haven't already. There will be a backlash to all this, and decent people will be swept up in it.

I simply don't find slippery slopes to be compelling arguments. This is literally the only, the one and only, instance of this ever maybe, possibly occurring I've even heard of. And it hasn't been substantiated. There's zero evidence this encounter even took place. And if it did, there's zero evidence that the person in-question had any malicious intent.

It's just such an empty, transphobic news story playing to your unfounded fears and bigotry. There literally isn't even a story because nothing happened and now there's been weeks of violent protesting.

P.S. Please don't ever again insinuate that I'm supporting pedophiles and molesters. That's a fucking disgusting thing to say. How dare you. I highly, highly doubt you'd be talking to me or allowing me on these forums if you even remotely suspected that I in any way supported that shit. So don't insinuate it.

Biden is totally senile. But he is not running the country. Left wing coup leaders do. Biden admitted that he does what "they" say.

FTFY: Biden admits that he's only the President and he also works with Democratic legislators. 

Wow, shocking.

I don't believe there was a trans woman in the spa that day, but I do believe there was a man with his dick out. How insulting this must be for actual trans women, to have perverts claim to be trans, and there's nothing they can say about it because the "allies" will come for them if they do.

The spa has no choice but to allow any man who claims he's a woman into the women's section, because it is the law in California. Do you think the Korean grandmas in the spa with their granddaughters enjoy it when men come in? It's fucking crazy that you think these men are trans!

Go somewhere else! Where?

I'm curious where you, in your narrow view of transgender people, define who is and isn't trans. It's interesting to me, and kinda gross, that you feel as though you get to decide that.

In my opinion, trans people have dysphoria. A man exposing his dick to children doesn't have dysphoria. How many of your transgender friends would do that? I bet none of them. It's kinda gross that you think they would.

I like how you dodged my question, turned it back on me, and attacked me for something I didn't even say.

It's incredible how some topics make otherwise decent, intelligent people totally boneheaded. Is it the religious indoctrination most of us endure through our childhoods, some of us all through our adult lives? Is it some internalized repression or resentment? It just confounds me.

I will side with this woman over antifa clowns every day.

Yeah, I know you'll believe nonsense without evidence. You don't gotta tell me twice.  ::)

This video probably isn't true. No reason to suspect it is.

Some more examples of the 'tolerance' that the gay community has to deal with.

https://www.theguardian.com/society/2021/jul/18/dozens-arrested-in-los-angeles-as-anti-trans-protest-outside-spa-turns-violent

The right wing anti-gay-trans movement is certainly gaining steam. They seem to be merging with the Q groups as well. It looks like Republicans are finding traction in focusing on anti-trans rhetoric now that most people (even lots of conservatives) really don't get fired up about 'the gays corrupting our youth' any more and are switching to 'save the women and children from the trans'.

It's the same old story, whenever a minority group starts to make progress, the conservatives have a freak-out about it and fight back with even worse discrimination and hate.

I'm glad to have the attention shifting away from my sexuality, but I worry for my transgender friends.

« on: July 18, 2021, 09:42:35 AM »
Loki is pretty mediocre like most things like Marvel.

If you're into overrated, cheap amusement/theme parks, have your fun!

That being said, a little bit of the newer stuff is alright. Infinity War took on the villain's point of view, which was kinda interesting; Endgame set aside a solid half hour just to be with its defeated heroes as people who are suffering and coping, but then it got into a buncha hooey.

12
Why do you think the man who exposed his dick to little girls was gay? Or even trans?

The transwoman in-question probably doesn't even exist -- it's an alleged incident... about a person minding their own business and using facilities at a spa as they were intended to be used.

Don't side with these violent a-holes. That woman should have filed a formal complaint and not gone ballistic on some schmuck working the reception desk. Do you really think she even gives a shit? She was baiting for likes and shares and traction on social media like a fuckin' loser. If she actually cared, she'd have filed a formal complaint, not made up crap and drawn that much attention to herself.

And ultimately Wi Spa is a private business. If the bakeries can turn away gays, the spas can allow transwomen. Get the fuck over yourself and go somewhere else.

I define journalism as facts with a point of view.

Even then, they've lost the facts and outright focus on the point of view exclusively.

I'm disappointed that somewhat decent news sites are still pushing weird narratives about Biden being addled with dementia and rickets or something.

And I'm shocked at how many of them aren't merely critiquing Biden's performance but are actively waiting for him to fail -- and want him to. He's in charge. Why would anybody want him to fail?

Arts & Entertainment / Re: What's the last movie you saw?
« on: July 17, 2021, 05:51:59 AM »
The Lazarus Effect, which wasn't all that great. Duplass and Wilde are great in stuff, but this movie is a bag of doodie.

And Interview with the Vampire, which is actually great.

16
They'd probably be similar Rorscach.

Just a conspiracy nut who's kinda fucked up in the head.  ;)

What's a socual? And you need to understand the nuance of what I say. Saying we don't have all the information doesn't default a world view to being flat - anyway that's another topic and what I said regardless of your personal opinion is correct. Social media has objectively been a net negatively. Society is not brought together by it but divided more and more. Good quality information is much harder to find - not easier.

Society is just now more exposed than ever. All the assholes are in-touch and all the assholes who don't like each other are too.

Arts & Entertainment / Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest
« on: July 11, 2021, 08:02:28 AM »
I was (once again) absolutely wowed by Joey "Jaws" Chestnut's incredible performance at the 2021 Nathan's Hot Dog Eating contest, where he scarfed down 76 hots dogs and buns in 10 minutes.

Just an amazing feat of human endurance.

This sums it up.



Wouldn't that be lovely were it true!

Americans actually do have freedom.

What corporations figured out is that it's easier to buy and sell off politicians three times over for favorable legislation and manipulate the populace through advertising and marketing, news media, and social media than it is to really take our freedoms away.

We willingly give them up, getting caught up in stupid shit.

25
True, but people are naturally tribal and usually have an us vs. them mentality.

And the truth is, us gays have always been -- and will always be -- significantly outnumbered, and there are also deeply entrenched religious and social beliefs against us which won't just vanish anytime soon.

Believe me, I'd like acceptance. I don't want people to go through the same crap I did. But I don't expect it. Again, lowering my standards for the behavior and decency of others is far more realistic.

26
You might say this is a completely irrational, possibly offensive chain of reasoning.  And I would agree but this is my brain on drugs.

I thought it was a cracked egg?  ;)

This is really the truth. I mean, it would be nice if we could all see the humanity in others, but people are assholes. Women learn this harsh truth very early in life.

This is very unfortunately the sad reality of the situation.

27
Space Cowgirl is probably right -- tolerance is the best we'll realistically get.

I can mostly go about my day without getting any dirty stares or catching a slur. It happens here and there.

It's better to just lower your expectations for the decency of other human beings than it is to expect more from them.

28
Ding ding ding!

I always feel inclined to respond to these threads because I think I'm the only gay guy on these forums. Pezevnek might be bi? I don't remember.

But yeah, "tolerate" sucks. That makes us feel like morning traffic -- you don't really like it, but you can deal with it most of the time. Like, thanks? That fucking sucks.

I'd rather you just not see us. Not really anyways. Do you see hetero couples? Really see them? No, you just see a couple and don't think twice about it. That's the goal.

29
Well, considering that gay conversion therapy is still legal, that gays and trans folks are disproportionately assaulted, raped, and murdered, and that in some countries gays are literally executed in the streets...

That's a really touching story, Stash. Thanks for sharing!
