  1. LBGTQ - 4 out of 5 cats prefer lesbians

    As surprising as it may seem, I think the environment today is survivable, so I'd like to provide WF with some encouragement. My belief in personal safety is from the perspective of someone who has already transitioned (next week will be 40 years). I know how I felt when I thought it might be impossible for me to transition, so I'm hoping there may be a way to help her avoid what that feels like.

    @Zorral For the love of God, why does anyone listen to that deranged woman?

    I think the important thing is what the reason for your regret is. If you feel it is just not something that will work for you, I'll accept and respect that, with no question. If you feel that the current social/political climate makes it too dangerous, I might have some useful input.
  5. US Politics - or: How I Learned to Love the Atomic Don

    I have to admit that I have some bias. In the mid to late 60s, I was on the faculty of the Army Intelligence School, which at that time, was at Ft. Holabird, MD and later moved to Ft. Huachuca, AZ, where Manning received her training. I feel a sense of betrayal that someone who took the same oath I did, violated it. My first training in the intelligence field was counterintelligence, so I have always had the mindset that safeguarding intelligence information is paramount. The lawyers will probably tell me I'm full of crap, but Assange was actively soliciting information he knew was not the property of those who provided it to him. I see him as an accessory to a theft that occurred in the US, even though he did not set foot in it. We live in the digital age, where one can commit a crime in a country, even though one is not physically in that country.
  6. US Politics - or: How I Learned to Love the Atomic Don

    I understand what you've said. I resolved the conflict I felt in this manner. If the army hadn't subjected her to excessive solitary confinement and confinement in an all male facility, I would have no problem with her serving her entire sentence. Adding to this, the army's meting out additional punishment for her attempt to end her life, provided me with a clue of what they intended. For those reasons, I have no problem with the sentence commutation. As far as Snowden is concerned, I don't think the mantle of "whistle blower" sits easily on him. I don't think he wound up in Russia by accident. The claim that he was trying to get to South America is a smokescreen. Assange is nothing but a trafficker in stolen property. His latest activities indicate he is allied with Putin. I'd have no problem with lengthy incarceration for Snowden and Assange.

    It's a complex issue. The out and proud side believes visibility, education and such will lead to greater acceptance and that there is strength in numbers. The stealth side basically says that if people do not know you are different from them, acceptance is greater and that being perceived as just another human being, rather than someone who is different. There is some unavoidable friction between the sides.

    Theda, I thought about that, but I originally had two show up. The one with no mutual friends, I was able to block, but the one with, I still can't block. I've heard nothing from Facebook about my inquiry as to why I couldn't block that one.

    There are so many conspiracy theories around these days, that the best way to do something that will be ignored is to make it look like one.

    I don't think it is about who posted about it. I have found one with Facebook Security as part of his profile. What I find curious is that the results people get for taking the same action vary so widely. Now, I only get one, and I still can't block him.

    The idea that entering "Facebook Security" into the block page would return all accounts with those words in their profile would only make sense if everyone got similar results. Some get 2, some 6, some 12, and some 0. Also, some can be blocked, but others can't

    You might want to try what is suggested in this article. The results might surprise you. Then see what happens if you try to block those monitoring your account.

    Thanks. Her feeling is, "Why should I want to be around people who think I'm going to hell." She's crafting a reason she's not flying to NY that is least likely to cause problems. But yeah, distance is handy to have.

    Sometimes unexpected things happen. My wife has been waiting for word that her brother-in-law who in hospice care, has passed. It is expected. But last night she told me that she is reluctant to fly to NY. That surprised me as she has flown a number of times, including last year, when her father died. Still, I told her that if she felt it unwise to fly, to come up with an explanation that wouldn't upset her family. It seemed simple enough. Then, this morning she also mentions that when she attended her father's funeral, one of her other relatives that she isn't in touch with much, noticed her wedding ring and asked, "What's your husband's name?" I didn't press her to find out how she answered. She knows my views on visibility and there are somethings it isn't good to delve into as her family is primarily very traditional Irish Catholics. Besides, all she had to do is answer with my first name which isn't a tell-tale. Okay, now I'm getting a clearer view of why she doesn't want to go to NY. The icing on the cake is that when she was talking to her sister (the one whose husband is ill), on the phone, yesterday, her sister mentioned that she had seen The Danish Girl, recently. My wife said she hadn't seen it and didn't know much about it. So that fishing expedition went nowhere. It should that they are generally good people, unlike her other sister and her husband who are more Catholic than the Pope and who voted fro Trump. The rest of her family are older and very traditional. I guess I know why my wife doesn't want to enter that hostile environment, again. Being over 2500 miles from her family is an advantage.
