A guy goes in an adult store and asks for an inflatable doll.
The guy behind the counter says,“Male or female?”
The customer says,“Female”
The counter guy asks,“Black or white?”
The customer says,“White”
The counter guy asks,“Christian or Muslim?”
The customer says,“What the hell does religion have to do with it?”
The counter guy says,“The Muslim one blows itself up!”
VERY funny!

:D

Marissa, you're absolutly hilarious, to us but probably not
to him. These are serious people though ... Your an adorable
young lady and I don't want anything bad to happen to you so
quit messing with this guy. I gave you props to get you where
you need to be so run along and play, just not here , OK ?
You're a bit pushy, you know.

Stop telling her what to do.

Thank you.

I think we females should never be too careful using online forums. There are criminals and seriously screwed up men using these forums along with us.
Just be smart. I had my photo for my avatar a few years ago and after some threats I thought it best to take it down.
Yea, I took down the one of me doing gymnastics at the beach in my bikini caus I got a few weird messages that made me feel a little creeped out, and my BFF was pretty pissed that I had it up and had posted on my profile places I hang out, she said I was being too specific and I was just asking to be abducted... I didn't even think about that but shes a lot more street smart than me ...

It would be a good idea for you to make your messages private so that trolls can't follow you to different forums. Just click on your screen name, and just above your comments it will give you the option. Listen to your BFF, it sounds like she gives good advice!

I think you are talking about this girl:

Many girls in islamic countries are beaten, tortured, mutilated, raped, and murdered. I can give you plenty of information, but it's not nice or fun to look at. Womens rights are one of my research topics. You may wish to wait until you are older to look at most of the info. It is nightmare inducing. I'm not saying you couldn't handle it, I believe you can. You just shouldn't have to.

Good idea. If you have any questions, Trisha or I can probably answer most of them. We've been here for a while!

You're prolly right tho. Last month my cousin sent me some links about a girl she knew that got stabbed to death by two girls that were supposed to be her best friends and it so totally messed me up inside that I started feeling sick ... Just thinking that she could betray someone that was her BFF for 8 years, all those memories and stuff like they just didn't mean shyt is just so f'ed up :_( I'm so glad I moved out of there, I heard my skatepark is full of druggies and pill pushers now too:(
