Absolutely for just research purposes. Nah, I am not going to lie. I am a perv and want my spank material and I have always found Xhamster to be of high quality and none of the bugginess of many of the lesser sites. That is why debate, especially with people who hold opposing views, is essential (de...

It was idle showboating. I am still perfectly capable of watching Xhamster. In fact I used it just yesterday morning.

I think deep down we are in agreement. The problem wasn't trans to begin with, but a poorly worded ordinance that allowed loopholes for non-trans perpetrators and just people wanting to prove a point to abuse it. Thus to stop them, they had to negatively affect the trans community. I still say there...

Yes, Phelon, there are criminologist working on it, but they are not the activist in the public sphere. How often do we here from them outside of reports that rarely get traction in the public conversation. And yes you did discuss them. My point was, as I created the thread, then I have the initial ...

The problem with using Title IX is that here is the wording "§ 106.33 Comparable facilities. A recipient may provide separate toilet, locker room, and shower facilities on the basis of sex, but such facilities provided for students of one sex shall be comparable to such facilities provided for stude...

I am in complete agreement with the first paragraph. The full accuracy is hard to cite, but even when extrapolating for the estimation of under reporting, the numbers are far less than the fear mongering perpetrated by those with an advantage for controlling the narrative. This crime is visceral. Th...

Because it does not use the violent or criminal act, but can you deny that it is a tactic of producing fear in a population for the purpose of political change? While it does not have a criminal component, it certainly falls under the description "Is calculated to influence or affect the conduct of ...

I totally get that, but if you were to go to a full scale commercial operation which needs more power, I would put in a separate service. There are two reasons. The first is it would allow a 200amp panel with little difficulty. Second, if you were using it as an exclusively commercial building, the ...

The difference is that is the goal of the use of capitalism. If, as you say, I do not like a good or service I choose to not do business with them, that is the market at work, if enough people do not like the good or service, the business has to change or go out of business. This is the free market ...

The key to long pulls is that lube (There is always time for lube!) You pull a string or rope (depending on size) through the sealed pipe, and then you take wire lube (it is a thing, but I wouldn't recommend it for other applications) and apply it to the wire as it enters the hole, it glides the cab...

Sorry for the delay, it was a very busy weekend. And yes, home improvement stores are not filled with skilled tradesmen. It seems more often than not I am the one who helps someone when I am there.

Traditional terrorism as it is commonly referred is the use of violence to achieve political goa...

The sad thing is I saw a sign like that in San Diego and I commented that all I could think of is the old freak show act of the half-man/half-woman. I saw the one that had a triangle and the cross, arrow and another symbol coming off of it that was far less insulting than I think this symbol is. Jus...

I think if building codes had been altered that all newly constructed buildings having publically accessed restrooms be required to have a single occupancy unisex bathroom, over time it would not be an issue. The initial push would be for the excluded criteria of HB2, parents of children, special ne...

OK, this is a fairly common situation, and as you have DIY the rest and nothing has shorted or burned up I am going to give you an attaboy and be fairly confident you understand the fundamentals.

So on my intro thread, it was stated my expertise as an electrician would be helpful as Corgimom stated that she had a situation I could help with. I asked if I should start a thread and here it is. Now to be upfront, the majority of experience is residential and light commercial, with a heavy empha...

Didn't see a thread in C&D that was for this. I don't think I am ready to kick that hornets nest just yet, let me get some street cred first.

I like you bringing up separate but equal. I read a fascinating book called Along Freedom Road by David Cecelski. It was about the Hyde County school boycott here in NC. It seems the black community boycotted the school system for over a year because they didn't want to be integrated, they just want...
