Slang for "male virgin," particularly a male virgin of age 30 or above.

Re: Rampage shooting in Santa Barbara by misogynist 22-yo.

This person did not commit those crimes because he was lonely or sexually desperate. He fits perfectly into the pattern of young men trying to valorize their sense of personal grandiosity in a storm of deadly violence. Throwing women at him would not have cured his hypertrophied entitlement complex....

Re: Russian Ambassador Slams Wartime Rape Sculpture

These are valid objections but still, the risk of triggering panic attacks should not override the right of art to exist. Given how prevalent description of rapes are in mass media I don't think why this objection should stand. I'd think that the center of the issue here is that the artist didn't t...

Re: What do we want to see in Trek 2016/STXIII?

I just want a semi-original story which isn't a hamfisted remake of any of the last 12 Star Trek movies or any of the famous TV show episodes. I mean maybe it's close to impossible but I just hope its somewhat more original than 2009's "let's do Nemesis a little better" and 2013's "let's melt WoK an...

Re: Caretaker

I'm curious where you thought the previous draft veered into hurr-durrism. One small thing I noticed: you rewrote the line where Torres talks about Starfleet procedures to omit the comment she had in the previous draft about "the Yamato incident," and now it just generically says "lawyers." Good mo...

Re: Why the Federation is secretly horrifying

20th-century Paris. I don't mind some references to current real-world culture, but I wished we had seen more creativity; maybe some attempt to refer to things between the 21st and 24th centuries.

Re: Why the Federation is secretly horrifying

That "cultural stagnation" point drove me fucking nuts watching DS9. What do we do with the holosuite? Alamo, 1950's spy movies, 1950's bar (inside the real , 24th-century bar!)... I think the worst was when Odo and Kira (neither of whom are human) went on a holosuite date to 1920's Paris. Have some...

Re: One town's war on gay teens

What decent Christians should do is tell off the evil Christians using Christian language and rhetoric . Sort of like how this guy does it. If Jesus was telling us the truth in Matthew 25, as I believe he was, then that gay man living in Uganda? That’s Jesus. That lesbian woman or transgendered pers...

Re: Herman Cain vs The First Amendment

Actions like Cain's are not that surprsing. There is a growing group on the Right that fully believe the first amendment only relates to "Christian" religions. This largely feeds into their delusion that America was founded "By Christians for Christians and is a Christian nation" And as such the 1s...
