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

"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…"

"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,…"

"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…"

"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…"

"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 Sir's discussion The Cost Disease in the group The Great Debate
"Grad school I can definitely understand, but as long as you're taking a common major (and if you're not, I guess you'd have to assess whether or not that is worth the extra expense). It honestly never occurred to me to think about the…"

"This is perhaps off topic, but why does anyone have to go out of state for university?  Are there not universities in every state?  "

"Maybe it's a combination of all the factors he listed, and maybe some others?  Since that article is very long, I skipped over some of the paragraphs that seemed less relevant, but I'm wondering if he mentioned whether the number of…"

"Getting a university education in Canada is far more expensive if you don't happen to live somewhere near a university (which was the case for me; the closest university to my home town is about a 3 hour 45 minute drive away).  I spend…"

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…"

"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…"

The Great Debate

"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More

"Yeah I'm more of a fan of the puffy look, although I'm not a stranger to wearing waistcoats or vests with light  padding. It might sound weird but I prefer having less on my arms."
