  •  It's a "I smoke a pack a day and I'm 70" quality. (0+ / 0-)

    There's barely a passing reference to those who didn't end up merely bored with it.  Yet, the diarist must know plenty of such stories.   Therefore it's just an unrepresentative story, interesting BECAUSE it's so unrepresentative.

    Only some conservatives are racist. The rest are merely enabling racists, allying with racists, and hoping they win the next election with racism.

      experiences out there and that, often, women are much more likely to have bad experiences.  He is simply telling his story.  I think it is commendable for him to do so and found his story riveting.  Everyone is different.  Can't understand the need some feel to bash when he has expressed some very personal experiences with our community.  Oh, well.

      •  I can't understand why you think it's bashing. (0+ / 0-)

        It's personal, and never gets past that, since the experience isn't representative.  It is what it is, and much as I'm glad the seventy year old guy isn't dead from smoking, it's a story that's interesting only in that it failed to end up in the sad place almost all of them do.

            It is what it is: a relatively unique experience that leaves out the more likely fates, like the guy who made it to seventy while smoking a pack a day. Just saying.
