What culture are YOU talking about?
I was not referring to a specific culture; I was pointing out that different cultures define masculinity and femininity for each gender differently. And those definitions will no doubt continue to change into the future.

We had a strategy meeting for the upcoming U.S. Supreme Court arguments in the DOMA and California same-sex marriage cases.

And some good food and margaritas to relax with.
You had to go to Mexico for that?

Where do you live? Haiti?

I guess you must be christian and are totally unaware of my disability so I can understand your ignorance whether itÂ’s deliberate or not.

Actually no, this is a long standing joke that you would not understand and I meant davesworld, exactly as I wrote it. But again you were not to know that.

Yes I did mean on, not an, and not an, basic mistakes that many dyslexics make and mistakes that ignorant godbods love to pick on because they have fook all else to play with. Funnily enough itÂ’s that exact same christian mocking of my disability that is the sole reason why I am no longer christian, good to see that you keep up the traditions.

Why would god not, itÂ’s one of the things godbots love to rant about and it is claimed your god myth is omniscient is it not? Or perhaps you delusional enough to think, as do many such christians, that you know the mind of your god?

Lies Buster wrote, "<quoted text>You really are not smart. Basically, science on works with physics and at macro levels. When it comes to quantum mechanisms and singularities, time and physics can not be measured and therefore neither can God. Basic, which is why no scientist worth his salt ever ventures into the supernatural realms, because they understand that science can only measure the physical realms."

So because there is a question that YOU cannon answer then it is me who is not smart, OK, I follow your logic there, I think itÂ’s called deliberate ignorance.

So you argue from ignorance, may I suggest you look at the mathematics of Dr Param Sing to see if the mechanisms of singularities can be considered.

And the argument from incredulity does not work either, what you are saying is “This is the option that best suites my sensibilities there it must be fact”
So are you saying you are dyslexics?

The Geniuses disease?

Consider yourself lucky.

Obama takes the cake with these two:

"We're the country that built the Intercontinental Railroad."

and

"I've now been in 57 states -- I think one left to go."

Right, so now what? Do we take all the cultures of the world and find a happy medium?

I'd say no. We haev our own culture and our culture has defined what is male and female and what attributes each gender has or is "supposed to" have.

Jedi? Vulcan? Mind Meld? Mind Trick? What Was Obama Thinking?

Mar 01, 2013 · He can't do "a Jedi mind meld" with Republicans and get them to see his way about taxes and spending, President Obama said

POTUS Mixed Metaphor of the Day: The 'mind meld' is not a Jedi tool from Star Wars, but a Vulcan ability from Star Trek.

Romney came out of seclusion, interview with ABC, said his problem was with NOT 'getting his message' the voters.
The real problem was he DID 'get his 47% message' to the voters!
