Ok.  I know y'all are tired of hearing bout my trip.

But here is a summary.

We took in a tons of doggies. We also found homes for a bunch, but not as many as we took in.

Build a pet hydrotherapy pool. And I saw 3 injuried doggies get to use it.

My cousin has a thrift store which is 60% of the funding for the rescue. Not sure if it's cuz it's Vegas or if it's because it funds a rescue, but people donate new stuff with tags and plastic wrap still on it.
A $4000 Armani dress with the tag still on was donated.
So was a new Xbox game and 10 games.

Also did tons of family stuff.

Went to the Iowa State-UNLV game. Allegiant stadium is a wowzer.
Iowa State won 48-3.
Saw an ISU graduate who is playing in the NBA in my section. Didn't bug him for a selfie since 10 others were. He was there to enjoy the game.

Went to Fremont numerous times. My cousin lives bout 8 blocks from there. Lots cheaper than the Strip.

Spent most my time in the Arts District. Don't think there is a single place to gamble there.
Lots of good bars and fantastic restaurants there.
Plus most are dog friendly. Saw so many doggos in bars, the people had beer and the dogs were given water dishes.

Love my family but 11 days in Vegas is too much.


Ok. Done talking bout my trip and boring y'all.

1/ Now, let me take a moment to note something for the 1/6 committee. Each one of these Trump mooks will resist the subpoenas. Each one of them will demand to testify in private. Each one with make spurious claims of executive privilege. Each one of them will lie and lie.

2/ Now...and this is the tricky part, but do try to pay attention.

fark. These. Guys.

Don't let them or their lawyers wedge you into the phony courtesies and hollow formalities of the Old Washington.

These are people who would have gladly burned down our nation.

...

6/ I'm a sterner sort than anyone on the committee, but for ONCE, get the taste of blood in your mouth. For ONCE, act like you farking mean it. Enforce subpoenas. DOJ will back it. Jail obstructionists. Demand candor.

Burger Taco.  When you grill a nice big burger only to discover the last bun has gone moldy.

A little messier than using a bun as the stuff tries to squirt out the ends, but pretty tasty.

I think it's 9X12 and 4 1/2 feet deep.
It was donated to the rescue. The guy bought it when the lockdown started just so he could work out.
It has a harness so a human could swim.

We just put on a harness made for doggies and it works.

Peer-Reviewed Publication
Transgender men who become pregnant are at increased risk for depression and difficulty getting medical care due to a lack of knowledge among health care providers, a Rutgers study reports.
While some plan to become pregnant, the research suggests that unintended pregnancies occur in up to 30 percent of transgender men.

First, let me apologize and explain that I was being facetious and I should have included a '/s' ('/f'?).  Your questions are valid questions and deserve honest and genuine responses.  I don't think that "egg donor" is misogynist, and I don't think that "sperm donor" is misandrist.  But "sperm-provider" hits the same nerve as anti-choice people describing women as "host bodies".  It only hits the nerve about 5% as much, given the overall context, but that is where my snark came from.

Specifying the type of gamete definitely does not demean the gender identity of the person providing the gamete, but the manner in which the provision of said gametes is described could be interpreted as demeaning, regardless of the describers intent.

Is egg donor misogynist?

Does specifying the type of gamete in any way demean the gender identity of the person providing the gamete?

First, let me apologize and explain that I was being facetious and I should have included a '/s' ('/f'?).  Your questions are valid questions and deserve honest and genuine responses.  I don't think that "egg donor" is misogynist, and I don't think that "sperm donor" is misandrist.  But "sperm-provider" hits the same nerve as anti-choice people describing women as "host bodies".  It only hits the nerve about 5% as much, given the overall context, but that is where my snark came from.

Specifying the type of gamete definitely does not demean the gender identity of the person providing the gamete, but the manner in which the provision of said gametes is described could be interpreted as demeaning, regardless of the describers intent.


Thanks.

I clearly had a brain-fart on the perfectly cromulent term "sperm donor" and get where your snark came from. My inner five year old totally gets it.

The /s would have gone a looooong way there, but eh, "welcome to FARK", right?

In 2010 when the Olympic Winter Games were in Vancouver, I became enthralled with sweepy stone. I watched every match I could.

I was also in community College at the (complete waste of) time. And happened to be in a public speech course at the time. So we had to give 1 argumentative speech, a persuasive speech, etc.

I did my informative speech on sweepy stone.

Did you know all sweepy stones come from one quarry in Scotland?


I did know that. In large part due to the fact that Mrs. Ride was on a committee that set up a Bonspiel charity event and they actually bought the stones. So there are curling stones in Hawai'i.

"There was no point at all to the Book, which is what made it an especially dreaded form of penance. It contained twelve chapters. Like the scale used to measure earthquakes, these got exponentially worse as they went on, so Chapter Six was ten times as bad as Chapter Five, and so on. Chapter One was just a taste, meted out to delinquent children, and usually completed in an hour or two. Two meant at least one overnight stay, though any self-respecting troublemaker could bang it out in a day. Five typically meant a stay of several weeks. Any sentence of Chapter Six or higher could be appealed to the Primate and then to the Inquisition."

It was donated to the rescue. The guy bought it when the lockdown started just so he could work out.
It has a harness so a human could swim.

We just put on a harness made for doggies and it works.

freddyV: Closed_Minded_Bastage: freddyV: Ok.  I know y'all are tired of hearing bout my trip.

But here is a summary.

We took in a tons of doggies. We also found homes for a bunch, but not as many as we took in.

Build a pet hydrotherapy pool. And I saw 3 injuried doggies get to use it.

My cousin has a thrift store which is 60% of the funding for the rescue. Not sure if it's cuz it's Vegas or if it's because it funds a rescue, but people donate new stuff with tags and plastic wrap still on it.
A $4000 Armani dress with the tag still on was donated.
So was a new Xbox game and 10 games.

Also did tons of family stuff.

Went to the Iowa State-UNLV game. Allegiant stadium is a wowzer.
Iowa State won 48-3.
Saw an ISU graduate who is playing in the NBA in my section. Didn't bug him for a selfie since 10 others were. He was there to enjoy the game.

Went to Fremont numerous times. My cousin lives bout 8 blocks from there. Lots cheaper than the Strip.

Spent most my time in the Arts District. Don't think there is a single place to gamble there.
Lots of good bars and fantastic restaurants there.
Plus most are dog friendly. Saw so many doggos in bars, the people had beer and the dogs were given water dishes.

Love my family but 11 days in Vegas is too much.


Ok. Done talking bout my trip and boring y'all.

Good story but not one picture???

Which would you like?
The hydrotherapy pool? [Fark user image 425x566]or the beer? [Fark user image 425x576][Fark user image 425x318]or from the game? [Fark user image 425x566]or the roof at Fremont? [Fark user image 425x566]

1/ Now, let me take a moment to note something for the 1/6 committee. Each one of these Trump mooks will resist the subpoenas. Each one of them will demand to testify in private. Each one with make spurious claims of executive privilege. Each one of them will lie and lie.

2/ Now...and this is the tricky part, but do try to pay attention.

fark. These. Guys.

Don't let them or their lawyers wedge you into the phony courtesies and hollow formalities of the Old Washington.

These are people who would have gladly burned down our nation.

...

6/ I'm a sterner sort than anyone on the committee, but for ONCE, get the taste of blood in your mouth. For ONCE, act like you farking mean it. Enforce subpoenas. DOJ will back it. Jail obstructionists. Demand candor.


I just have a feeling this will be in courts for a while.
They will file, lose, appeal and so on.
