Just trying to privately help you with biology, kiddo. And no, I don't date bigots.

Lighten up, Forrest! ;) You seem awfully fond of attempting to shame people. But hell, I'd rather you make me laugh than insult your girlfriend to a bunch of strangers. We're making progress, buddy!

I think both Forrest and jg fox are getting the better of Jeffrey K, and they both come across as much more likeable than Jeffrey K. Anyone else?

Yea that doesn't sound bad at all when talking about sex to a straight man

Wasn't shaming someone the precise purpose of every one of your posts in this thread?

Perhaps a case of the kettle calling the pot black?

Yeah you also don’t get dates apparently.

Anybody else thinks it is hilarious that a bunch of tough guys in this thread think that telling a guy that he can't find dates is an insult? (actually, not hilarious at all, the INCEL sentiments have come out on MP before, but I'll focus on the hilarious part for a change).

I'm half-thinking of running a little poll asking the ladies on this site which of the online personas in this thread they would most likely consider for a date, based on what they have read. But I will refrain from doing so. Just a little thought experiment.

Don’t refrain Lena.  It’s a shitshow already.

That seems rather objectifying don't you think?

LOL. A great idea. Just don't ask whom we would least likely consider.

I'd like to nominate myself for this position.

So she took her first good whip today leading an slightly overhanging 5.8+(gym rating card). I was paying slack for her to stand up and clip into the anchor and she lost her grip and sailed off the wall. I caught her softly with a hop, but it was a shake up that ended the attempt. We both had half of a really rich protein bar on the way to the gym and she was sick to her stomach. She's not much on lead falls and was a little tense afterwards, but fifteen minutes later she was laughing about it. So far she's top roped a few eights and worked on a nine. We got tired so we decided Hibachi grill for dinner, it's her favorite, then we'll sneak back and attack a few more routes before heading home. I've got a 5.9 with really good holds in mind for her to try. It's going to be a great lead comeback for her after the earlier whip. Wish us luck!

Well the lead rope was ready for us, but there just wasn't enough recovery over dinner. We each belayed some new folks who were stoked to get off the auto routes, but don't have their belay certs yet. She gave a valiant effort to start the 5.9 I had picked, but her grip was just too far gone. We dropped to a 5.8 she hadn't done yet and she fell after the first clip trying to clip the second. She got back up and dusted herself off and went up all the way to the third clip and got it before grip strength was gone. She doesn't like lead falls and we're working on it slowly. She was done after that, but she belayed me up two more routes and that allowed me to leave on a high note. She's excited about going again Sunday.
