Ah my dear, these past couple of months have revealed the true nature of several male members. Unfortunately, many atheists are still very entrenched in their Christian upbringing, that is: misogyny. I, the tomboy, have been hangin' with guys all my life, and not always the nicest guys. There's a part of me that is SOOOOOO used to it, as you may be professionally, and as long as we shut the fuck up about things we're fine right :) But as soon as we rock the boat a little, the shit hits the fan! However to read a teenager perpetuating the same 'old boys club' talk, that is extra depressing. And in the end, teenaged males OWN the internet! That's why at the moment I'm working at politics back in real life instead of the internet, looking to start a local atheist network, working with the local feminist organisation, and in the green party, I'm coming at the 'world order' from all three angles :)
Please don't stop posting. I know there are several people here who appreciate your input much.
I'm thinking of a completely different internet discussion which brings out the most vitriol imaginable from ignorant "fly-by" participants, patience and wit eventually do half of them in, facts...meh... there are always "published" pseudo-facts on both sides of any debate and non-scientists usually can't distinguish pseudo-facts from actual ones, facts can always support two sides of any debate, they know no master :) Resilient ugly posters simply create an unappealing display which in the end hurts their cause anyway. I've seen it happen elsewhere. Look how Susan used to agree with TByte... no more :)
Met up at the cinema again. Spent a short while in the coffee house getting reacquainted then about 6 off the restaurant. food was okay - not worth the price it cost - but oh well.
Sauntered over to the park with the fountains, and discussed more about what we like music wise and so on, just getting to know each other, gradually edging closer there were semi-intimate hugs - and then there was a naked man.
Across the way a bloke had emerged from the crowd and was getting undressed. He was down to his boxers - and then those came off two exposing his danglies for all the world to see, he then dove into the fountains, did a lap of the park for good measure and then got redressed. His mates were filming it, so I imagine the entire event is on youtube by now.
After that brief flurry of excitement we bid a retreat back to the coffee shop to warm up with some tea, innuendo and reminiscence about the cute naked guy's bollocks and arse.
Tea drunk it was off to the station,but - oh no! The last train left 5 minutes ago, the next one isn't for another hour and a half - how ever will we pass the time?
Solution: head back to the park where naked running man was earlier, for a protracted and wonderful make out session. Hugging, Kissing, Fondling, Necking, Ttongues - all on a public bench in full view of the theatre crowd who were by this point coming out from the cultural quarter.
That was fun. Kissing Boys - I definitely like it!!!
Then back to the station for the 11:21pm home. One final kiss on the platform and then we broke apart.
I suppose I can kinda take a bit of credit - he asked me out but it was my idea to go to the theatre (ostensibly to see what was on, I hadn't actually imagined seeing a play but serendipity struck) and I took him to the fountains - a true romantic heart beats within this chest - we sat on a park bench and hugged, could have stayed there all night like that.
