do women like playing with testicles?

If it is something he finds pleasurable, then yes I don't mind it. I'm always afraid that I am going to be too rough with them...  (Apr 11, 2013 | post #18)

Savannah, TN

McNairy County

I'm familiar with the Nashville area already and slightly with Knoxville but am a newcomer to the Southwest TN area. I have a great job down in this area and am doing a power commute where I live in a hotel during the week locally and sometimes return to my home area on weekends. I quite like the drive but it is getting rather costly to maintain two residences so I will need to move here. So far, I am fine with TN. I've lived in many different places and some areas that I could find very little to enjoy (at least in my opinion).  (Dec 10, 2012 | post #3)

Savannah, TN

McNairy County

I was researching places to live in the area, and Savannah is one of them. However, when I was reading up on it in various forums I saw a lot of nasty comments about it. Why does McNairy County and Savannah in particular have such a bad reputation? Or hopefully they don't?!  (Dec 8, 2012 | post #1)

Why do Yankees think they are better/smarter/stronger/etc...

I grew up in the Northeast and after I married, spent 10 years in the Detroit metro area. My career brought me to the South several years ago, and my current position change has me relocating to another area in the South. There are regional differences between the areas but different doesn't mean "bad". The pace of life is generally more relaxed in the South (especially in smaller cities/towns) but really, is this such a bad thing? I don't miss the road rage and people rushing everywhere up North. Okay, so I don't really care for traditional Southern food but I'm learning to get a taste for cornbread. There are a lot of stereotypes, and I'm sorry to say that this is what I expected before I came down to live in the South. Most people in the area I lived in assumed Southerners were uneducated, lived in trailers, drank a lot of beer, drove only pick-up trucks,and liked race cars,hunting, and farming. I know it's completely not true, and I've since enlightened quite a few other of my friends/family who are still up North about the South. It's just such a persistent stereotype that people probably let it cloud their judgment. I've met a lot of intelligent people from all areas of the country--some had PhDs and others were high school dropouts...educati on doesn't equal intelligence all of the time. I've met very open-minded as well as very closed-minded people from both the North and South. I have met a lot of great people since I have lived here, and haven't found it to  (Dec 8, 2012 | post #203)

Elizabethtown, KY

racial prejudice

I'm with you there...it's actually very sad that we even have to deal with issues of racism in 2012. I'm originally from up North and while there is some racism around E'town area, Kentucky isn't the most racist state/area I have lived in. It's probably going to come as a big surprise, but the most racism I saw was in the suburbs of Detroit, MI. Detroit itself is around 98% black and most of the 'burbs are pretty much 95%+ NOT black. I was very surprised to see how racist it was there since you would think with so many different races (white/black/Asian /Hispanic) and immigrant populations--that people would be relatively tolerant... Education is the problem though...the people who are the most bigoted are the ones who have spent the least time around others who are different from them and tend to form preconceived stereotypes.  (Dec 3, 2012 | post #2)

most drama on Facebook

I can't name any names for obvious reasons, but here's a couple that have started some drama on my FB wall: Co-worker-He had a nasty breakup with his girlfriend via a status post and her commenting that she broke up with him...then both of them commenting back and forth. All kinds of TMI like how he had slept with her sister, given the girlfriend the clap, how the girlfriend was tired of his bizarre foot fetish...oh yeah. I also forgot to mention that every other word his girlfriend used in the posts was f*ck! Husband Stalker-A woman who had gotten really hung up on my husband because he had given her advice a couple of times via email on FB. She started to post incessantly, would butt in on gifts others posted to his wall, and would send him angry messages...he ended up having to block and defriend her. I don't know if it is me because I am getting OLD (ha ha) or if there really is more drama in the world but having social media sure has enabled the drama kings and queens a whole new stage to flourish!  (Nov 29, 2012 | post #66)

Why can't I say Christmas any more?

I go out of my way to make sure that I don't offend people on purpose or unintentionally... my friends practice many different religions--Christi anity, Hinduism, Islam, Wicca, Judaism, etc. I was raised Catholic, became an atheist at age 13. The past couple of years I've become more of the "spiritual but not religious" type. I get wished "Merry Christmas" by friends/strangers and also got wished the same when I was an atheist. I didn't get offended by it even when I disbelieved in any higher power--it's called showing tolerance for others' beliefs. Like it or not, Christianity is the majority belief in the U.S. Also, if "Merry Christmas" is the worst thing that you are going to say to me, then it's a good day as far as I am concerned! Even if I don't follow a particular religion (and I do not), it's the good intention behind the words and that is what is important to remember and return. I'm not sure why people get offended by it...I don't have a way of magically looking at someone and knowing what religion (if any) they practice. I am from the Syracuse, NY area but have lived in the buckle of the Bible Belt here (KY/TN) since 2007, and actually have never heard "Happy Holidays" in a store/from a stranger...it's always "Merry Christmas". I get wished "Happy Hanukkah", "Happy Eid", "Happy Yule"...etc. To me, it isn't important that I don't necessarily celebrate all of them; it's important that I acknowledge it and return it. You can call the holidays what you like according to your particular religious (or lack of religion!) tradition. If you aren't comfortable with "Merry Christmas", then there is always "Happy Holidays"... Just be who you are and be proud of your own traditions and beliefs.  (Nov 29, 2012 | post #8)

Memphis, TN

Good defeats evil, love defeats hate.

Nothing to be ashamed of for being a Southerner...every Southern state that I have lived in or traveled to has its liberal enclaves and progressive people without exception. There are some very conservative states up North as well; many of the Midwestern states are as "red" as Tennessee if not more so! I was also very impressed with how overwhelmingly Memphis and Shelby County supported President Obama in helping re-elect him for 4 more years.  (Nov 8, 2012 | post #6)

Should white trash Florida start voting in 2015???

Shhhhh Don't tell them that there is going to be an election in 2016. That is the easiest thing to do, and will make it better for the rest of us. Sorry, I am in a mean kind of mood today...normally I am not snarky.  (Nov 8, 2012 | post #2)

RACISM in bartlett traffic court

I've been in Memphis for business frequently and lived in Detroit, MI for 12 years. I didn't say that the entire South was racist, since I've also spent some time in the South...I was commenting that in the areas surrounding Memphis, there seems to be a lot of racism. The same could be said for some areas up North, too.  (Nov 8, 2012 | post #8)

Things White Women Do To Have A Black Womans Butt

True enough. I would never personally tan since repeated tanning makes white skin look like leather by the age of 40 or so...not a good look. I would say that at least half of the white women I know do tan and a few of them have had breast implants. Perms/body waves were more common with white women in the 80's and 90's but yeah, a couple of women I know get them. Most of the younger women now are into straightening their hair. My hair is wavy so I'm happy with it and leave it alone. It seems like no matter what one's appearance is, they are going to be unhappy with some aspect of it or just simply want to try something different. I would never do it, but I could definitely use the fake butt...  (Nov 5, 2012 | post #20)

Reason why racist whites dont like obama

The OP's video articulates the reasons pretty well, though I have had the "privilege " to hear some of the other reasons why whites who claim they are not racist will not vote for Obama: 1) They claim that his policies/actions have favored only black people. (Really? So taking measures to help the middle class, the economy in general, create jobs, and offer educational opportunities doesn't help ALL people?!) 2) I've had them tell me that Obama secretly hates whites and all other races except for blacks (This theory is just too stupid to comment on) 3) I've had some tell me that Obama has a "king complex" and is over-stepping his boundaries. (This most likely means that they don't like the idea of having a black guy in charge. Or that they just don't like blacks. Or both.) It's pretty funny what you hear BEFORE you tell them that you are going to vote Obama and then tell them why they should as you debunk their crazy conspiracy theories one by one.  (Nov 5, 2012 | post #25)
