Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: on Monday

Come on in, pull up a chair!

Picture yourself spending some time with congenial friends, sharing your lives and pictures from your cell phones." They're curious about that cool game, song, movie, camping trip, art show, or other event that fascinated you. You talk about all kinds of stuff, poetry, styles, personal achievements, relationships, and bad days. You can share your inner child, and laugh together. They sympathetically listen to your feelings about serious topics like politics or climate change, even when they don't agree.

Personal validation comes from paying attention to one another, giving more than you get. Everyone respects you and themselves, despite our amazing range of personal tastes and interests. They'll tell you they don't agree with an idea or behavior without implying you're a bad person or somehow deficient. It's an "I'm OK, You're OK" kind of fellowship, where nobody tries to make himself look better by picking on somebody else.

Nobody here is into mind games. A discussion started with a loaded guilt-throwing question will be deleted.

This group is not intended to compete with other groups on topics they cover but to "fill in the cracks." Whenever a discussion dwells at length on a topic for which there's an existing group, we urge you to provide members a link to that group to continue along their tangent.

A comment is a shout-out, which will get lost in a few days, because the comment wall is just a random stack.

Please start a discussion to share stories, photos, and videos. Replies will pop up in your "latest activity" and a conversation can develop from the feelings and thoughts you contributed. Groups are built on discussions.

Alexa for Evangelicals! (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Patricia Oct 9. 1 Reply

Never let it be said that Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is anything less than up to date with the state of the art as it comes to the modern household.  However, as a discriminating conservative Christian, Betty would never tolerate…Continue

New Rule: Church and Destroy (Real Time with Bill Maher - HBO)

Bill Maher is an atheist [whoa, shock and amazement!].  He is also a dedicated opponent of Donald Trump and anyone who would support the man or his goals ... and that includes ol' Yahweh, himself!  As it turns out, there is a substantial correlation…Continue

concealing abuse (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Sep 23. 3 Replies

We think of institutionalized child abuse and for many of us, the natural reaction is to think of the Catholic Church. Certainly, their guilt is beyond question, even as the headlines of the Boston Globe early in 2002 and the more recent news…Continue

Men who challenge men to stop violence

Many men join in the effort to reduce violence against women and children and other men. He speaks of the need to place responsibility on men instead of focusing on women to stop violence. He offers a breath of fresh air, as do so many of the men on…Continue

That's great! You must be so pleased that things can progress now.

The good news we were waiting for! Yesterday Luca got the green light for transition at the gender clinic. Now she can start with paperwork while waiting for the first treatments. New first names still in discussion. We're so glad!

What everyone said. :) Jimmy indeed looks happy, and clearly has loving, nurturing adults in his life!

And good for your daughter, Ian, for resisting a tradition she doesn't believe in. James can join a religion later if and when he wants to (or, more likely, not).

Jimmy Two-teeth looks like a happy child.

Comment by Patricia on October 7, 2018 at 1:22am

Smart woman.

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 7, 2018 at 1:01am

Good for your daughter, Ian! She has the courage to buck tradition and pressure. 

Comment by Ian Mason on October 6, 2018 at 11:49pm

James is 7 months old, sleeps 11 hours at night and only cries when he's hungry or tired. He can't crawl yet but wriggles along. He doesn't care about toys but loves paper and anything else that makes a 'crinkly' sound. Yes, I'm very proud of my family. My daughter is atheist enough to say 'no' to a baptism, despite pressures to conform to tradition.

Thanks for the Jimmy 2-Teeth Pic, Ian. Cheered me a bit.

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 6, 2018 at 5:08pm

Ian, a very special little boy and family. You must be very proud!

Comment by Plinius on October 6, 2018 at 1:14pm

Good for you, Ian! And Jimmy looks good!
