But you're saying that it's ok to raise issue with the food, but not ok to raise issue with the phone, How can you not see hypocrisy in that?

Go ahead. Raise any kind of issue you want. Not stopping you. If you don't get that someone I may be dating chomping and talking at the same time is different than some unknown person calling my phone then -- oh well.

Not telling anyone to do anything. Telling my feelings about two situations.

Please tell me -- do you read the letters to tell the world what they should do or to convey what you would do in a certain situation? Just how much power to you think you have in this world?

Two different examples, but really the same situation. That situation being you justifying your personal feeling, and admonishing others for theirs.


Oh, and *I* have ultimate power in this world.

and you DID tell everyone what to do, your LW3 told everyone to quit being so fussy over a phone call, after all it's not like someone chewing with their mouth open, its just a phone call.

And birds go tweet. It sounds like that's exactly what's happening. The parents "accept" him enough to have him over for holiday dinners, but don't "approve" of him bringing his boyfriend. Should they? Where do you draw the distinction between acceptance and approval?
So you're cool with a white racist white family not qelcoming their son's black girlfriend to dinner? Its the aame thing and if you're cool with that, that's part of the problem.

From Merriam Webster online --(emphasis mine, except the actual word they had capped)
Definition of AFFECT: the conscious SUBJECTIVE aspect of an emotion considered APART from bodily changes; also: a set of observable manifestations of a SUBJECTIVELY experienced emotion.
Hee, hee. Just sayin'!
Tonka was using the word as verb. You provide the definition of the noun. Two different meanings.

No hee hee.

You said: "But to me it has no more of a tangible affect on you than the phone call thing."
So it is about you b/c it is YOUR understanding. I would like you to define why you are keeping it to a "tangible affect". When I said it affected me I never said "tangible affect" but you took that on as if that is the definition I was using.
Trying to understand your statements so explain please why it needs to be a tangible affect.
Not sure which one of you got it wrong first, but you can't have a tangible affect. You can have a tangible effect on something

Something which affects me ( verb) has an effect on me (noun). If I don't give a sh*t, I am likley to have a flat affect ( no expression of emotion on my face).

Both can be used as a verb or a noun. Usually affect is a verb though.

Here's the verb definition of affect. Plesae tell me how this changes things.

af·fect 1 (-fkt)
tr.v.af·fect·ed, af·fect·ing, af·fects
1. To have an influence on or effect a change in: Inflation affects the buying power of the dollar.

2. To act on the emotions of; touch or move.

3. To attack or infect, as a disease: Rheumatic fever can affect the heart.

That has nothing to do with what I asked of you. Answer the dam question and don't make up your own arguments.

Or just admit you don't have an answer. That's cool, too.

wrong. It has everything to do with your question. It is virtually the same situation. You're jist to stuborn/ignorant to admit it.

Even with your attempt at deflection, you STILL fail to answer the question. You demand an answer from me, for a question I never asked, while refusing to answer the question posed to you. Break the chains, man! Answer without deflecting! I'm betting you can't! Prove me wrong!!
