I have always had a hard time explaining what I mean, so things tend to come out wrong, especially over the internet. And for that I apologize. What I was trying to say wasn't about men never hitting women. If a woman is coming at you with the intent of inflicting harm, you should do whatever it takes to defend and protect yourself, even if you have to inflict harm on her.

I was mostly talking about guys who hit women as a sense of control or abuse. Guys who hit someone for no reason except to force them into submission or to achieve an ulterior motive. And that's not just limited to men hitting women, there are more than enough cases of men hitting men and women hitting women to achieve that.

I agreed with the corrected quote because he was right. Anyone who who lays their hands anyone else for any reason outside of self defense, deserves to be caught and punished

Yep, none of my points on this topic are related to anything but how I feel about it XD

And seriously, it's true --- if I don't want to harp idiotically about how here's violence on both sides --- women do have it worse. I don't *physically* know this, but all the facts point to it.

Similarly, taking a more sympathetic outlook would be better. Though I feel (again!) kinda stupid for saying/writing stuff that usually just amounts to "Sucks for you girls".

Look at you, trying to make things right! You are two precious for words.

Relax man. When you see an argument between members who've been here for over two years and/or have more than 3,000 posts, just let it take its course. There's nothing you can do.

lol, I have always had a problem of treading where I shouldn't yet. And I'm so social that I tend to jump into threads and other posts without realizing my place. The last thing I want to do here is make enemies by having people misunderstand me

Pffft, dude --- if anything, Arc made the first remark leading to the argument, I followed suit and the rest is on the previous page.

Don't worry about it.

Some of the arguments on here are pretty interesting though. Next time I think I'll just sit back with some popcorn and watch you guys go at it. I'm surprised people haven't started placing bids yet lol

Then pretty much the only way you'll get by here is never posting. Ah, cos.com! Good times.

Nah, dude. You were perfectly clear. Arc is an ass. Kildread is a dope. I'm a nag. That's why we all like each other so much!

The truth. But then I would say that as I am basically future-you. Except for the being married to SV part.

I think it's just a matter of me getting to know everyone over time. Everyone seems to have different personalities, but most are similar to my friends and family, so I have no doubts about getting along with everyone. And from what I can tell, most of you speak your mind, regardless of whether or not it will offend someone. I like that, it's people like that you can trust, because you know they will tell you the truth, even if you don't want to hear it

lol, I'm not naive enough to think I won't make enemies. I just want to build up my arsenal a little first before that time comes :P

If aging means I get more like you, I am ready for cronehood.

My father filled out a job application for me to work for the USPS in rural mail delivery. However, I would rather work in an office setting but the salary is really good, much better than what I got at Target. As I've mentioned before, I'm so sick of being unemployed.

I've been having a hard time lately as I have no idea where I'm going in life. I don't know what I'm doing in college anymore because I don't see what I can do with a studio art degree. I've talked my dad into having me see a social worker again to get some help putting direction into my life.
