  1. When you are able to recognize your immaturity you are mature.
  2. Peace brother! I, too, haven't been here much in the past few years, but believe me when I think back... you were very much missed as well. You just made my day, Dres.
  3. Scylla, again, well stated. And I share these sentiments. However, SL built on 'deceit'; indicative of the anonymity one seeks in-world. I can appropriate any race, creed, or color and continue this RP even when a student wants to write a paper. I, personally, don't find much honor in-world or on this forum. Just my humble opinion.
  4. Hello Scylla. The above was very well stated. Thank you. However, I think your words work everywhere but SL. There is no guarantee the 'voice' that is represented is really the voice of a person of color. As they say: "Your world, your imagination". I have met more black (and people of other color) appropriation in SL than that of any RL place I have visited.
  5. I'm not so sure what your intention was in crossposting the above, but I will consider your intentions good - even if it did not add to the conversation.
  6. I found this interesting: " Baby, It’s Cold Outside” has soared up the digital sales charts as Christmas draws near, with sales increasing 70% in the latest tallying, putting the Dean Martin hit in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Digital Song Sales chart. Sometimes a song is just a song.
  7. Imho, the 'public' display of comedy does not and cannot exist any longer. In a PC world comedy is a capital offense. This holds true for both SL and RL.
  8. I would never, ever even think of FLAMING Madelaine McMasters: the absolute master of flaming! I know it's cold outside, but if posting history has anything to do with circumstance, I will relent. And I am penitent.
  9. Brrr. Bebe, it's getting cold in this thread, as well.
  10. I asked my friend Bebe to stop by my sim for a chat. I have a wonderful parcel on a winter sim on Sansara. We seemed to really warm to each other over the course of a couple of hours chatting. I really like her, but (there is always a but) her fiends do not like me at all. And we discussed this. She seemed to have some issue of betraying her friends because of the pressure she felt from them to terminate her friendship with me. In the beginning we talked past this issue, but as the evening went on and it got kind of late she wanted to head home. I really wanted her to stay - and I felt she, too, didn't really want to leave. Our conversation went something like this: For context, I merged our IM’s - she is chatting first and my reply follows. I really can't stay - Bebe it's cold outside I've got to go away - Bebe it's cold outside This evening has been - Been hoping that you'd drop in So very nice - I'll hold your hands, they're just like ice My friends will start to worry - Beautiful, what's your hurry My roommate will be pacing the floor - Listen to the fireplace roar So really I'd better scurry - Beautiful, please don't hurry Well Maybe just a half a drink more - Put some records on while I pour The neighbors might think - Bebe, it's bad out there Say, what's in this drink - No sleds to be had out there I wish I knew how - Your eyes are like starlight now To break this spell - I'll take your hat, your hair looks swell I ought to say no, no, no, sir - Mind if I move a little closer At least I'm gonna say that I tried - What's the sense in hurting my pride I really can't stay - Bebe don't hold out Ahh, but it's cold outside| C'mon bebe I simply must go - Bebe, it's cold outside The answer is no - Ooh bebe, it's cold outside This welcome has been - I'm lucky that you dropped in So nice and warm -- Look out the window at that storm Paddy will be suspicious - Man, your lips look so delicious Lilith will be there at the door - Waves upon a tropical shore My friends minds are vicious - Gosh your lips look delicious Well maybe just a cigarette more - Never such a blizzard before I've got to get home - Oh, bebe, you'll freeze out there Say, lend me your coat - It's up to your knees out there You've really been grand - Your eyes are like starlight now But don't you see - How can you do this thing to me There's bound to be talk tomorrow - Making my life long sorrow At least there will be plenty implied - If you caught pneumonia and died I really can't stay - Get over that old out Ahh, but it's cold outside Bebe it's cold outsid Brr it's cold... It's cold out there Can't you stay awhile longer Bebe Well... I really shouldn't... alright Make it worth your while Bebe Ahh, do that again.. So she stayed, and we had a wonderful evening on this beautiful winter sim on Sansara. Fade to today: her friends are trying to ban me from Sansara. What’s your opinion?
  11. I am defining my world, my friendship list, based on your tl;dr (but I did) OP. Insofar as success with women - yes! I have been with my 'woman' for 28 years. Uninterrupted years. Monogamous years! So thank you for noticing.
  12. I am establishing the superiority of the alpha male when it comes to friends - as your OP asked in discussion. What I wrote is a fact, and there are no alpha males who find this distasteful. Alpha's survive on friendships and leadership. My friends are my friends and there are other alpha's in our circle - we don't contend for superiority - we enjoy our friendships. If I, as you so kindly wrote, am doing a pretty good job of destroying men then there you have it - there is no fixing your way of thinking. And there is no fixing my thinking based on what you wrote. I speak of the alpha male in terms of friendships (your OP) and leadership and loyalty and you equate it to toxic masculinity; the mass murderer. I am whatever you think I am - my friends (male and female) know who I am.
  13. Yes Scylla, it is cool to see you about, as well. You wrote: “…to see you falling back on such apparently absurdly crude stereotypes” My response was to answer your OP: "The alpha male has many friends: male and female, strong and weak, green and blue - and he is loyal to each. In today’s climate the alpha male faces different challenges, but he is a leader and he is successful in what he is and does. He will always stay true to his friends (male and female) and they know this of him" I don’t think there are any alpha males who would disagree with what I wrote. I even suggested that we face challenges in todays world . . . and you throw another flawed, modern construct in your post, that of “toxic masculinity”. There is nothing in my post that suggests violence, misogyny, or anything negative however you want to paint the alpha male with that one stroke - go figure. I deplore violence! PS Most mass killings, as occurred in Toronto, are perpetrated by men. Alpha or not. I tend to think that they are not - they seem to be loners, no girlfriends, no social leadership, etc. But please correct me if I’m wrong,
  14. Hello Scylla. The construct you present is flawed at its most basic level. In SL, as in real life there are two types of males (regardless of what facebook box you check): the alpha male, and everyone else. The alpha male. Other men want to hang with them and women want to go out with them (regardless of what SL box you check). The alpha male has many friends: male and female, strong and weak, green and blue - and he is loyal to each. In today’s climate the alpha male faces different challenges, but he is a leader and he is successful in what he is and does. He will always stay true to his friends (male and female) and they know this of him. To this end, I can read from your OP that you just don’t get this - and you probably never will. It's OK as you are not a male, however I can only request that you cease trying to effeminize the male ‘figure’.
