    Pony I love to learn about others as well. But, in my experience, you don't do that by making snap judgments of strangers on the street. If you really want to know, ask. Otherwise, as I said, it's none of your business.

    I don't really consider this to be a liberal thing, more a basic courtesy thing. We have the word 'stranger' for a reason.

    i don't really know that we have the capacity not to make snap judgments, and i don't know that trying to dogmatically and universally train the impulse away is especially helpful.

    like i have said, i don't accost strangers in the street, even if they are weirdos.

    sometimes people surprise me, it's true! i allow for this.

    and sometimes they bear out my initial impression.

    i guess i don't see why the idea of trying to suppress that initial impression is such a virtuous or deirable or noble goal?

    Personally I'd ask the opposite question, what do you gain from forming the initial impression?

    you know i don't speak for Will but i thought i covered this sufficiently a bit back

    nobody responded so maybe it got lost in the shuffle.

    Hmm. I can kind of see that, I suppose. It's not really a thing that I see myself doing, but this may very well be because I've never really "observed" people like that.

    Some of this could be a hindrance, I suppose. It is a source of constant frustration to Cesca that I really have no idea what "dressing well" entails. I tied myself in knots when I got a new job a while back because they had an incredibly vaguely defined dress code. In the end I figured it out by getting a pad, and tallying up what people were wearing then buying the majority option.

    I'm going to ask a question that sounds disparaging but I don't mean it to be. I'm genuinely curious. Do you have Asperger's or another autism spectrum disorder?

    Whereas, I do that sort of observation intuitively and in moments. I understand that most other people aren't necessarily like that, but it is a thing that comes naturally to some and it is certainly a trait many people acquire with age.

    The reason why the older a person gets, the more socially conservative and judgmental they tend to become is specifically because as you get older the knowledge and observations of the patterns of behavior of people around you crystallize and become very difficult to dissuade.

    Thus far, I think I stand on the right side of being capable of being wrong, but I also know I'm far less patient and tolerant than I was as a youth, so who knows?

    There's an sf book called The World Inside about a dystopia where there's Brave-New-World-esque free love but instead of magic contraception, they've just fetishized childbirth. Female characters in the book frequently espouse sentiments such as the above.

    There was a recurring drug/alcohol/medicine thread, but Tube inexplicably locked it. Pity, too, since people tended to come in and ask questions about substances they were considering ingesting. Prime opportunity for harm reduction, right tharr.

    Inexplicably? I thought it was a pretty clear violation of the "no megathreads" rule.

    On top of that, it was a megathread about activities that are generally illegal.

    the problem was people were starting to stray into discussion about acquisition techniques and the like

    which start to come across as discussions of where to acquire drugs

    even i was starting to go "uhhhh guys" and tube put a cockblock on it
