Erg replied to D.J.'s discussion "The Woman in You Brings Out the Man in Me" in the group The Great Debate
"I would say no. If you get into a place where your masculinity gets defined by others behavior you are not acting in a independent or self reliant way, which isn't a manly virtue. Furthermore, it also gets into a place where you are defining…"

Erg replied to Will's discussion Social pathologies for the sexes in the group The Great Debate
"I guess I would be interesting in seeing what men born 70-80 or so years ago in similar social and economic conditions looked like. I am guessing their parents were married, but they were pretty screwed up. Being poor, lacking respect, power, and…"

Erg replied to Will's discussion Religious content in Hollywood in the group The Great Debate
"Generally speaking, crime fiction and crime drama is where you are going to see the most religious themes.  The genre has always played heavily on conflict between good and evil, justice in a corrupt and fallen world, and the opportunity for…"

Erg replied to Will's discussion Numeracy in the group The Great Debate
"Numbers are mean are meaningless without narrative. Same with facts. Without a story attached to them they just sorta sit there. I agree though, we shouldn't make the facts fit the narrative we are comfortable with."

Erg replied to John's discussion How can I ask a girl this?
"Don't white knight it.  Like any other human being, if you are in the situation just offer.  But don't use it as an in to ask her out.  If you like her, just ask her out.  You are way to nervous and will never be…"

Erg replied to Josh's discussion What to do?
"Seriously, just ask her.  If she says no, oh well, to bad.  You will ask out many, many girls.  You will get gunned down many times.  This is not a bad or awkward thing to ask.  Your asking her out on a date, not to be the…"

Erg replied to Chu Kim's discussion Are you a Good Guy or a Bad Guy?
"Most men are neither in this world.  They are a hero when it comes to risking their life to save a little kid or attractive woman from an oncoming car, but fat, mean, old Mrs. Wilkerson?  Not so much.  They won't cheat on their…"

Erg replied to Will's discussion Numeracy in the group The Great Debate
"There is one in that blog post you linked to from Forbes.  The blogger uses 50 million dollars in new uniforms as an example of government waste, to go along with his goofy concern about bullets."

Erg replied to Paul_of_TX's discussion Really "Pro-Choice" in the group The Great Debate

Erg replied to Paul_of_TX's discussion Really "Pro-Choice" in the group The Great Debate
"1. The "party" split, at least if you see the party as activist, donors, pols, staffers, actual party officials, and friendly media (which voters and political scientists do see them as. 2. Like it or not, any statewide candidate in a…"

Erg replied to Paul_of_TX's discussion Really "Pro-Choice" in the group The Great Debate
"I think the "national hysteria" was the concern that Republican Congressman simply did not take rape, excuse me, "legitimate rape" seriously.  The DNC didn't have to spin that any more than there was any need to spin…"

Erg replied to Daniel's discussion What makes a great politician? in the group The Great Debate
