I shall be out with the bat group until quite late so won't have time to write, I'm afraid. This being a part time ecologist is hard work and we only had one dormouse yesterday, which ran up the tree, so we didn't get to sex it or weigh it. Thankfully, it wasn't me who let it escape. We did have a couple or more nests in the boxes but that was it.

As it's a fairly quiet night, windwise, we might get some bats. I'll let you know.

We lost a four legged child tonite.

It was truly a dark and stormy night tonite. Earlier today, we rushed our beloved pekenese to the vet. She was having trouble breathing...the dog, not the vet. The vet said that it was a heart problem, which is...we found out, a common problem among pekes. He gave us some pills to help with Sugar's breathing and water retention and we brought her home.

Some Decency In The Porn World

Blog About: 

Author: 

Ran into this on fb. The day after Alexis Arquette died, a former boyfriend of hers started hawking a sex tape to various media sources. The porn media mega site xHamster paid $25,000 for it, and after insuring there were no other copies out there, destroyed them. I'm never going to be doing business with them, but isn't it nice that there are people out there willing to do the right thing even when it costs them a large chunk of money?

Thank you, gentlemen.

Hi girls and guys,

while waiting for certain things to finish, I thought I give you a short update on the mainroom chat.

I've finally been able to get the base system running. That means, we can start copying and backup our previous system and starting to get the VMs running again. _if_ all goes well, we might be able to activate the mainroom chat again in the evening.

So please keep your fingers crossed.

Forced-Femme character in The Blacklist

SPOILER WARNING!

-----------------

So I love The Blacklist; it's smart, dangerous and exciting. But the last episode left a sour taste in my mouth. Season 3 episode 4 featured a young arabic woman who is revealed to have been a man, a young boy forcibly feminized into a girl for being gay by her father. The ending however, didn't give her justice or closure. Instead she probably went to jail.

Has anyone else seen this and what do you all think?

IF you are a writer or a reader of stories where the heroine and hero become involved in an evening of opera, or the governor's ball. Maybe you might want to fertilize the pictures in your memory of exactly what those words "evening gown or ball gown" represents. The stories come alive when one can visualize in their own mind the events described in the book whether they are the author or the reader. Most of us have seen movies of the ladies in their beautiful gowns but most of those are of southern belles and plantations. For a modern look at elegance try this.

Where do people get "cannot treat transgendered people on religious grounds" from?

I have read a fair amount of scripture of various religions. Mormon, catholic, christain, budism, muslim, luthren(althoug i have to say i cant understand most of that one)

So far i Have yet to find something that definitively says that transgendered"or gender confused" people are well anything.

Closest is "man shall not wear womens garments" and vice versa..

Yet doesnt define a man or woman.
