  1. Thank’s Kat and Kate for shareing the p’ost from the Cut, about on line harasment. FOOEY on men that think WE, as women are overreacting. NO ONE likes getting harassed , whether in peron or on line. Men are so dense some times; when we say NO, we MEAN NO! I had alot of troubel with some guy recently after I let him buy me a RUM and Coke. So he paid $10 for me to drink, but that does NOT entitle him to have s-x with me. No woman should sell out for a drink or even dinner! I think we should NEVER allow men into our bed until we know:
    1) they are disease free;
    2) they will NOT have s-x with anyone else
    3) they will respect us if we do have s-x with them and
    4) they will NOT make us go home right afterwerd if we somehow wind up at their apartement.

    To many men just want to dump us after we give them what they want and I think that is stinko! FOOEY!
