Started this discussion. Last reply by J. Exalto Feb 10. 46 Replies

I'm not interested in women myself, but I'm often surprised by the kind of woman guys are into when it comes to relationships. I can't imagine myself marrying someone I don't respect, and yet a lot…Continue

I didn’t notice this section before, so I guess I will post in here since I haven't posted much yet. In case anyone is wondering, "J. Exalto" is a pseudonym that comes from a name I found in my…Continue

"I would say it's accurate, and I would say it's a natural progression from previous cycles, catalyzed by the involvement of the extremely polarizing nature of Trump.   I've heard various arguments about how the proliferation of…"

"There are some people on the left who are completely hysterical and seem to think anything remotely associated with Trump and/or Republicans in general is extremely far-right.  If you look at this bill from that perspective, then of course you…"

J. Exalto replied to Sir's discussion The cotton ceiling and other subtleties in the group The Great Debate
"Well I am exclusively (sexually) attracted to a very specific type of guy, which happens to be the type of guy that pretty much describes every guy in the place I grew up (which happens to be almost entirely white).  So I think upbringing…"

J. Exalto replied to Ameretta's discussion Should I kill Myself Because I am a black woman?
"Although I don’t know what it is like to be either black or a woman, I have felt like I’m rejected by everyone at times.  I’ve had no success whatsoever when it comes to dating (any sort of relationship, romantic or otherwise,…"

J. Exalto replied to Sir's discussion Class in the group The Great Debate
"I grew up in a blue-collar family in a blue-collar town.  I have 17 aunts and uncles (not including spouses) and about 40 cousins, and I'm one of the first people in my family who's going to graduate from university (I'm also one…"

J. Exalto replied to Braeden's discussion Death
"I generally think of my self as rational, and I've never been the least bit superstitious.  But death has always bothered me a lot, way more than it should.  And it's not a fear of dying, but it's after the death occurs that…"

J. Exalto replied to Sir's discussion The cotton ceiling and other subtleties in the group The Great Debate
"Technically true, but beside the point: the clear implication is that the racism, in this instance, is wrong.  Which it's not; dating someone you're not attracted to out of some sense of social justice or whatever doesn't seem…"

J. Exalto replied to Sir's discussion The cotton ceiling and other subtleties in the group The Great Debate
"This reminds of me of something I've encountered among gay men.  If you go on a dating site or hook-up app such as Grindr, you will see a lot of profiles that will explicitly exclude certain types of guys, such as Black men, Asians,…"

J. Exalto replied to David R.'s discussion "Iron sharpens iron" in the group The Great Debate
"Some elements of the right tend to think in terms of an idealized society in which there is no such political power or media control, and I'm sympathetic to that view myself.  I doubt it's actually attainable, but I'd argue…"

J. Exalto replied to David R.'s discussion "Iron sharpens iron" in the group The Great Debate
"Speaking in broad generalizations, I think the left and the alt-right use essentially the same definition of political correctness, which is different from that used by the right.  The former definition involves not using derogatory language…"

J. Exalto replied to Lumberjoe's discussion The Fourth Political Theory in the group The Great Debate
"This is a major reason it's such a shame that people tend to view people with different (but still mainstream) political views as enemies.  If anyone should be considered an enemy, it's this guy (and his followers).  People on…"

"I wouldn't say liberalism is the same thing as unrestrained capitalism.  I'm a classical liberal, so I tend to be sympathetic to capitalism, but I would also acknowledge that some regulations are necessary and pure capitalism…"

J. Exalto replied to J. Exalto's discussion What kind of woman are you interested in?
"That's interesting.  I've realized that on a subcouncsious level, I consider skills like knowing how to start a fire or change a tire to be more important than knowing how to cook or clean.  The latter are obviously more…"

"Uh... no I'm a bit confused about what in this post would lead you to think that.  Some of my other posts, I might be able to understand given that I'm often wordy and not too direct, but this one?"

"They appropriated $19.5 billion on March 7.  http://www.businessinsider.com/nasa-funding-authorization-bill-2017-3  I can well believe it's not enough, because it's not a yuge increase."

"It's been the same argument for two years. Trump doesn't live up 100% to some dystopic scenario detractors have concocted in their own minds, and it's supposed to be an existential crisis for his supporters."
