Figured we all have a lot of unpopular opinions that belong here in TGD.

Is it time to declare the "American Experiment" a failure?

In recent years, it has become evident to me that there is a nation wide push to capitulate our ability to self-govern to a group of "others" to handle governing matters for us. Be that in Washington…Continue

NOT a BIG fan of either candidate Trump is brash, egotistical, NOT diplomatic in the least. NEVER trusted Hillary, but liked Bill alot. . . 

If Joe Biden or Jeb Bush ran independently and threw their hats in the ring right now I'd be a happy man. . .

Hillary is 68 yrs old. If she has a period now I'd recommend she see a gynaecologist. But I get your point. Like that joke about the pope visiting Cuba. During the trip while on a boat with Castro, the pontiffs hat blows off and lands on the water. Castro tells the pope he'll get it and then proceeds to water on the water over to it. The next day, three headlines are seen the world over. In Cuba, "Pope declares Castro the second coming of Christ". In the Vatican, "Pope uses holy power to force Cuban atheist dictator to fetch his hat". And in the USA, "Castro can't even swim". :)

I wish it didnt hurt so much

Tonight on Fox News - "New reports state that Hillary Clinton has bled up to 5 straight days without dying. Can America trust the undead to lead our nation?"

Reminds me of a political leader we had in Newfoundland once named joey Smallwood. My father told me that when he campaigned door to door asking for the persons vote. If they replied something like ,"I'd never vote for you, you piece of @&€&&&&&@!!" He would turn to his assistant and say, "write that man down as "undecided "". :)

He takes them in stride.

No offence to trump supporters but I got a kick out of this. In an age of memes, anonymous YouTube videos, and guy Fawkes masks, this Scottish woman's simply protest message to trump was kind of refreshing. Actually, seeing how he handles this sort of thing I'm surprised he didn't get his photo with her. A little NSFW by the way https://www.reddit.com/r/Scotland/comments/4pnk9q/hey_everyone_trum...

So much of it is cultural.  In college (late '60s and early '70s) I had male friends from Iran, Syria, and Lebanon (three were Muslim and one was Druze).  These supposedly straight guys had no problem with obtaining an erection and showing other guys their penis, or masturbating together, or even masturbating each other.  The line you didn't cross was being penetrated (either orally or anally).  That's where it changed from ordinary (acceptable) heterosexual activity to (unacceptable) homosexual activity.

That whole setting was quite a surprise to me, I can tell you that!

"(I suspect that societies with more of a warrior ethos were more anti-gay due to it being viewed as effeminate or a deviation from natural roles)."

False.

All would be incorrect.

When can a kid pick his own damn hairstyle?!

     If there is one thing my wife and I disagree on, it's when our two boys(ages 7 and 4) can have some independence. Now, I'm not saying I let my 4-year old walk to the gas station around the block for his own cigarettes or some such nonsense, but when they're allowed to play in the yard or go next door or pick their own clothes without constant supervision.     My wife is the controlling one in this area, and I, according to her, am far too easy-going. Both those facts are due to how we were…See More
