"On the sum I agree with you, there's no difference between male and female sexuality.  We're horny in our own ways and equality and mutuality and consent trumps everything else. However The uhrm, objective value of a person…"

CD replied to patch's discussion Erasing painful memories: Becoming a reality
"It's not just the memories, it's what we learn from them.  Semantic, emotional and episodic aren't the same thing.  For example, a person can have traumatic amnesia and still suffer the emotional consequences of the trauma,…"

Maddy replied to patch's discussion Sexual expression and women
"A woman has a sexuality, just as a man does. Sexuality is the response to life as people, and the way we need physical, mental, and spiritual balance as people. This does make a difference whether you are a man or a woman, but only to accomodate the…"

Michael Lee replied to patch's discussion Erasing painful memories: Becoming a reality
"If you are interested in this topic, you should watch Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. it deals with this. and personally i believe my memories make me who i am, thus it would be wrong for me to erase them. Others can make the decision for…"

"Regarding your first point I'd wish to point out that Patch stated, I'm paraphrasing, that government funding towards research on human sexuality is prohibited. This is different from saying that research on human sexuality itself is…"

Abreo replied to patch's discussion Erasing painful memories: Becoming a reality
"Well there have always been ways for someone to forget painful memories. You could smack yourself in the head repeatedly until your brain stops working properly. Of course self-inflicted amnesia doesn't have a 100% success rate but that's…"

Britta replied to patch's discussion Erasing painful memories: Becoming a reality
"Everyone will have and has had their share of painful memories filled with remorse, regret, anguish, heartbreak, abuse, loss, anger, etc. That itself is a fact of human nature. Everyone would also like to erase those hurtful memories, but I ask you…"

"Foul. You were the first one to mention date in this topic, part of Abreo's post was a response to that context which you brought up. For the rest my views are comparable with Abreo. I don't see a reason for more objectification towards…"

Abreo replied to patch's discussion Sexual expression and women
"You were responding to my comment about jobs which I originally made to make a point, which is that every job turns a person into a commodity. I still don't see how the porn industry takes away more from a person than any other job does. The…"

Vertigo_One [Ops Mod] replied to patch's discussion Sexual expression and women
"If that's your line of logic how does that apply to jobs that objectify women? You were not comparing them to other jobs, you were comparing them to going on a date. There is a degree of commodification with any job, but with the porn industry…"

Abreo replied to patch's discussion Sexual expression and women
"How does that make sense? If that's your line of logic how does that apply to jobs that objectify women? The employers and customers still have to respect them as people in the same way they have to respect their waiter as a person. They…"

Vertigo_One [Ops Mod] replied to patch's discussion Sexual expression and women
"Every job ever turns a person into a commodity. It's intrinsic and inherent unless your employer really is nice enough just to hire you so you won't be homeless. No, it doesn't. A commodity can be treated in any way the owner likes.…"

Abreo replied to patch's discussion Sexual expression and women
"Eh, I guess I just treat everything the same way. However, to treat a person in that way is different, which is where porn comes in. Porn turns people and their bodies into commodities to be used. That is wrong. Every job ever turns a person into…"

"I think you're misunderstanding me. I am not saying that getting hardened to something is intrinsically wrong. What I am saying is that it is symptomatic of how you treat something. IE we accept that it of course perfectly right and fine and…"
