RE: are dogs losing their bark.

My dogs weren't very in touch with their wolf roots.

They used to sing along to the ice cream van.

RE: What do women prefer wearing

Patience, but it's wearing a bit thin. yawn

RE: Have women lost their femininity?

Role models aren't just for children and I'm sort of surprised you don't see that.

Also, in the context of this site, there's not much point in speaking with people who display negative role model behaviours.

That's kinda why I mostly ignore your posts.

RE: Have women lost their femininity?

I'm sorry, I still can't see any positive role model behaviour in this post.

You call other people names and tell them they're childish.

dunno

RE: Have women lost their femininity?

What are you doing there with that comment?

Is that what you have to offer as a male role model?

RE: Have women lost their femininity?

So, if we take on the role of mum and dad, we're unfeminine and if we don't our son's will grow up to be pussies?

Perhaps this is bullying - there are few more things that are definitively abusive than setting someone up to fail and then punishing them for it.

I'll tell you what I think is pu**y behaviour in men - it's when a man can't acknowledge a woman's strength, skill and hard work because he's not getting to suckle himself.

If men are feeling pushed out, attacking is not the cleverest solution. We come out swinging to protect our offspring and there's nowt more feminine than that.

RE: Have women lost their femininity?

And there was I thinking she saw herself as an exhausted drudge.

Oh wait, that bit hasn't changed all that much.

The elite haven't done a very good job, eh? laugh

RE: Have women lost their femininity?

Yeah, I'm so bitter about having to wax my chest.

RE: How high are your expectations??

I have no expectations.

Therefore, I expect my lack of expectations will be met.

RE: My Fondest Childhood Memory Is

The very uncreative Ted Bear, which became Bare Ted in our friends' made up English, so I took his ribbon off.

My daughter renamed him Old Bear, which is a tale of learning differences, late speech and apparent inattention...which turned into full sentences from the get go and was actually an ability to attend to everything going on behind her back while she was doing something else. I think my response to the renaming was, "Well, bugger me!" shock laugh

He was also nibbled by my first dog, so bares the scars of a lot of family history and love.

RE: Respect For The Past

Ha! When he was swinging from the rope in front of the waterfall and rescuing the woman, I twigged that his stunts are all circus skills - trapeze and clowning.

What fantastic poise, posture, flexibility, strength, etc. An amazing athlete. tip hat

RE: I`m speechless

Name calling...?

Like a child in a man's body?

RE: I`m speechless

And what impact do you think that will have on the whole network, Aries?

How many little girls will be saved from this life and death?

Tell you what, I'll give you the answers: NONE.

Personally, I'd like to see a little more happen with regards to this issue than you satisfying you own needs.

I think children are the priority here, not you emotional wank material.

RE: I`m speechless

Yeah, I'd argue the point about it being worse to be killed, M4. A few minutes terror and pain by strangulation, although horrendous, doesn't really compare to years of rape every which way and torture.

I suspect this man-boy started off his career as a child rape victim, a sex trafficked child himself. At some point he will have grown too old to be of much interest, but by that time the psychological damage, the fear, the ease with which he could be manipulated, would have been firmly established, possibly hard-wired in his formative years.

The escape from his own abuse is being used as a honey trap for more victims. The honey trapping will have lead him into trafficking and murder. The consequence of him refusing at any stage, probably isn't a kind-hearted bullet in the back of the head. He's clearly showing shame, but his fear of something, or some things, is overriding that.

I can see why Kemp wanted to kill him, but that's based on the trafficker being a man. He's not a man, although his body has grown. He's a still a child trying to avoid torture and survive.

The system by which child abuse and sex trafficking evolves is pernicious.

RE: I`m speechless

I thought Ross Kemp was on the verge of attacking the trafficker/serial killer, I thought I saw the murderous rage building in him, and then he cut the interview indicating he was going to kill him otherwise.

Wise move on so many levels.

What I found interesting was the same as Kemp indicated - the man was not what one might expect. He was more like a frightened and ashamed little boy. There's a bigger picture.

This isn't just one man responsible for all these atrocities. He indicated that bribed police were involved. This man-boy is both a victim and a perpetrator. You can see the power play as he leaves the scene, head down, shoulders hunched, surrounded by others who aren't displaying submissive body language.

This man-boy is just one small cog in the wheel. He's as trapped as the girls he traps.

How many more are there like him? How big, and how far reaching is the network that he's one small part of?

RE: What things you should always keep in your purse or bag?

This has been a fun thread, thanks Jhen. wave hug

RE: Do women spend too much on clothes, make-up and mobile phones?

Fifi, it's not really a matter of turning.

I like men, women and everybody else, except Lee. laugh

RE: Do women spend too much on clothes, make-up and mobile phones?

There's a fabulously apt spelling mistake in there somewhere. rolling on the floor laughing

RE: Do women spend too much on clothes, make-up and mobile phones?

You want me to pretend Lee doesn't live down the road from me and the nice Irish fellas do?

That's so not going to work, Fifi. talk to hand

RE: Do women spend too much on clothes, make-up and mobile phones?

I don't think limun's a Celt, Fifi.

And I'm not sure you're really grasping the concept of a Celt exchange, although I'm kinda hoping someone won't. laugh

RE: Do women spend too much on clothes, make-up and mobile phones?

So, why is it Molly won't set up a Celt exchange programme with me...?

RE: What things you should always keep in your purse or bag?

Can we set up a Celt exchange programme...? grin

RE: What things you should always keep in your purse or bag?

I haven't had a Celt in me in a long time, Molly. sigh

It was the subtitles that worked for me. laugh

RE: What things you should always keep in your purse or bag?

I heard that, too. grin

RE: What things you should always keep in your purse or bag?

Yeah, not sure you've thought that one through, Molly.

very mad next time...

RE: What things you should always keep in your purse or bag?

Trust Fifi to lower the tone. roll eyes

giggle

RE: What things you should always keep in your purse or bag?

There's life on the planet, Captain, but not as we know it... laugh

RE: What things you should always keep in your purse or bag?

I always start laughing whenever you appear, Boban. giggle

RE: What things you should always keep in your purse or bag?

Good, because I can hear those noisy blighters when they're on the move. laugh

RE: What things you should always keep in your purse or bag?

Use bobby pins when the Canada geese are migrating, eh? thumbs up
