There's been a couple situations where I've been "used" for the sexual gratification of someone else. I don't think it full on "traumatized" me, since I did agree to it, though I realized later on that I was pressured to do it, which makes me uncomfortable when I think about it ...

There was a strong interest among Iraqis to depose Hussein, establish a democracy, and open up friendly relations with the West. It was easy to get control over and occupy Iraq with minimal loss of life. That’s just how you fight a war. You do what it takes to win. As to whether the US was right to...

Depending on how you would define that. I have the impression that women on the spectrum are more concerned about being used for sex than women in the general population. And what qualifies as being used for sex? I would suggest that it has to involve some degree of deceit on the part of the user. A...

how important it is to understand Putin's point of view in this situation. It's important in order to predict his next move. Well that's an obvious reason to pay attention to whatever Putin does, but I leave that to the Intelligence ministries and would prefer to discuss something else at the dinne...

I never said I agree with it, just like I never said that I didn't. Because ultimately, whether that assertion is true or not, is a moot point. The part that is not moot is whether or not one country is allowed to set up special operations in the other country if the other country does something wr...

I would say yes although I've never had many close friends. When I was (I guess) 23 I was in college (after having left and come back) and I became very close friends with this 16-year-old gay kid. To be clear, there was never anything remotely sexual between us, but sometimes I wondered if I was so...

Whether giving up is the issue or not, in my opinion you should simply move forward i.e. plan to get married, I mean set a date and place and make the necessary practical arrangements. I happen to think marriage is more than just romance and happily ever after, it's also to some extent a business ar...

Indigenous and aboriginal both work, but I believe the latter is much more commonly used in Canada. Americans associate that word with Australia. OTOH it matters what the individuals call themselves. Many have always called themselves "Indians", it's still a widespread terminology. Spanish...

When we assume that members of one "race" are automatically racist through history and birth, we go further and further from that ideal. On one hand this is a gross oversimplification OTOH it's arguably true for a lot of people. Innate racism is like alcoholism -- recovery, should you und...

To give any sort of answer, I'd need to know what the person is being asked to give up. I can see being asked to give up alcohol, but being asked to give up one's religion or family would probably be a deal breaker for most people. For some reason I can't help thinking of a non-American asking their...

Romanian is Latin-provenient like Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, French. I would say the accent of spanish is not closer than the one of Italian. Spanish is too accented. Este Suzana acasa? Da, in bucatarie. Da is Russian, too. We share some accents in villages especially, with Russians and Ukrainia...

I may actually prefer this to the original. I know how American this is, but this is one situation in which I want to see some happy endings.

there is not one reason on earth why anybody on the spectrum should be amuuurican-style right-wing. they [right wing pols and their defenders] are NOT our friends! I respectfully disagree.

Nope. I went to Robert Louis Stevenson School, a school for "gifted underachievers." It was, basically, a school for troubled kids. There was a strong emphasis on academics----though you could smoke cigarettes in class. It had many "progressive" features until my last year, when...
