Comments: Late Night, Early Morn

Key, don't get pissed, but I swear, I think this "mode" is gender related. I've got one with indoor plumbing, and one with outdoor plumbing and it seems that the one with indoor goes through this crap 'bout, well, most of the time. It's a woman thing. Outdoor plumbing gener could care less with stuff like that. You could call my boy a straight up asshole, and his reply would be, you're.just.jealous.

No offense taken, Red. ; )

Yes we are more complicated. You think we LIKE it that way? We don't like it any more than you men like your beer bellies and receding hairlines!

Uggh. The drama sucks. Try having a no-nonsense personality, yet being stuck in a female body. It'd be almost comical if on outings, I weren't the one stuck in the kitchen listening to labor detail, while the husband gets to park his ass on the comfy leather and watch a 3rd and short interception in the red zone.

Getting stuck with age 8 soap opera detail...whew...whole nuther ballgame, give me the gruelling labor stories any day over this!

I would pay five dollars to get stuck in a female body. Unless, of course, they put the spray hose on me to unstick me. Sorry. Grew up with too many dogs.

Well, I could tell you a story about Steve who it seems is really Janet and loves being Janet and who, when she was Steve was hetero but now that she's Janet is homo (lesbian) but without the necessary plumbing changes. What we wind up with is a guy who takes hormone treatments to have little tiny breasts (swellings really), speaks in a falsetto, has really bad personal hygiene, always wears high heels and short skirts, still likes women and makes Klinger from MASH look like Marilyn Monroe.

Oh and did I mention "she" smells? I could go on but I'd like to keep my Zone bar down.

This is apropo of nothing I guess except one shouldn't whine about being stuck in a female body until you've walked a mile in Janet's shoes. ;-)

Wow...okay. But it's not like I'm TRYING to be a man, or anything. (Even with my height and broad shoulders, it would likely be an equally poor transformation.)

And I'm not even saying you guys have it easier in all categories, but you SURE AS HELL do in the social life area. And that's just fact.

I'd give 10 Vman.

I remember well the cruel little tricks and games that girls play. And, I remember proudly the times that I stood my ground when they acted like little queens.

Just tell your daughter that, friends, even good friends, will come and go. The memory of standing up for herself, of holding her ground, will be with her forever.

Right you are. Thanks for that. She's actually pretty good at that, for an eight year old.

But when she's hit by someone who claims to be her friend, she has to recover from the stun factor...and that can take a day or two or ten...

Yet another reason why I'm glad I have two boys and not two girls. I'd be SO out of my element :)

I am *so* glad I had a boy. I don't have to deal with any of that. I remember being a little shit myself in school, playing head games with the other girls. My mom always said "I hope you have 5 girls JUST LIKE YOU." Thank God I didn't.
My son is 15, and once in a great while he and a friend will have a disagreement. They go their separate ways for a while, and next thing you know my son asks me for a ride to go fishing with the friend he hasn't seen in a while. If only it could be that easy with girls. Good luck, it'll pass.

I beg to differ with Red on the gender specific-ness of this phenomenon. At least gender speaking; it does occur at a later age.

My youngest is 13 -- and within his circle of cronies, there is one "picked on" on a weekly basis. I admit, it's not as deadly to their friendship, but they pick on one another in nearly the same fashion -- one is on the outs at a time. Thus far, they've pared down the core group to between 3 and 5 members. Fortunately for me, my son is headstrong (I can't believe I said that) and he has friends in all of his school-related social groups.

If it weren't for the fact that their "leader" is a good kid (for the most part) I'd kibosh the whole thing. Eh. The best I can do is remind my boy that Group Mentality, while seductive, is not, generally speaking, right.


Wake me when both my boys are 25, mkay?

I agree that the site is good, but cant people find better things to do.
