    My GF and I just split up.
    Stars... That sucks.

    Perhaps tis for the best? It's possible that distance will allow change without witness, so when she sees you again and realizes, male or female, you're still you, she will come around? Perhaps even just a friend who cares is worthwhile.

    That is awful, but like Siuis said, it may be good for both of you to get a little time to se how things go, what will change and what won't. I do hope you two can stay friends at least. I'm so jealous of your boobs shoes by the way.

    The whole Irish discrimination thing iskind of funny from a modern viewpoint, seeing as the U.S. basically has a festival where everyone pretends to be offensively stereotypically Irish, but in a fun rather than mocking way (in general) and at least where I am, that also becomes an annual festival of "What miniscule fraction of Irish blood do I have?"

    Depends on when the one under discussion was theoretically arrived at, I suppose. But yes, I can see how if that was the exact meaning it would probably be correct.

    And I wasn't, exactly, though that's certainly something I have issues with as well, since that's happened to the aforementioned close friend as well. I'm not sure of the extent of it in your case (nor am I going to ask unless you feel like volunteering), so I'm not going to try to compare them, but... Yes. Not good at all, and very hard to get around, since giving the reasons for the problems tends to be seen as more proof that you're a terrible person.

    I mean, that outfit is nice. The pinkish trim sells it.

    I dunno, I hear it's a right good hatefest as the real Irish get Malloy about all the plastic paddies touting clovers and beer and leprechauns and mixing them with the Scottish and makin up all these claims that aren't even really Irish. One of my favorites was a ten minute rant on the word 'begorrah', bringing in such things as green being The Color (I think Saint Patrick actually has his own particular shade of blue) and corned beef and cabbage being an American Irish immigrant thing. I didn't have the heart to say Begorrah makes as much sense as zounds.

    Still, my forte take was the beer commercial with an Irishman walking to a bar, talking about that day of drink when all the world over, everyone shares the same nationality in the spirit of fun, and good company.

    Heck, she looks skinnier than me, and I've never seen that in a healthy individual before...

    This was going to include a compliment for you Helio, but every phrasing sounds creepy. So I think you look nice and wish I looked more like you.

    Maybe, I'm mostly speaking from personal experience, and while there's always some irritation, it never struck me as a "hatefest" I'll admit I ted to take a rosy view of things like this until I actually see such things though. It's certainly not quite the same as the original discrimination back in the day. I don't know though.

    I'll add to the chain of "wishing I looked more like" and assume based on your description of yourself, Siuis, that I should be jealous of your slimness. It's a Conga line of envy!

    To be fair, if someone says something completely stupid, it's easy to write them off as a joke. But once they start making sense... well... maybe then you can start to listen.

    That's been one of my arguments before. It's a pretty obvious argument. The answer is usually fairly illogical.
    I love the strawman "but we already have marriage equality, gays can marry people of the opposite sex just like anybody". It's really cute how politicians reword things to give them a different spin. "Marriage equality" instead of "homosexual marriage". They mean very different things if you actually think about it.

    *Hugs* I find it odd how most people react when I say I don't like either of my parents. Those who don't just write me off as whiny seem to have an easier time believing I have problems with my dad than my mom for some reason. Also, it's kind of ironic that most of the things people blame for it (like how I was perpetually angry growing up) actually resulted from taking their advice. >.>

    That's because the Irish seem to have a dark sense of humor where fooling around (read testing your liver's limits) on their national holiday is actually funny. A friend of mine quoted Boondock Saints "It's St. Patricksday, everyone is irish on St. Pats."

    On another note, isn't it time for a next thread? We seem to have reached the 50 page limit.
