I love your posts more and more everyday, Kylie.

I know that my family is secretly disappointed that they'll never get any grandchildren out of me. Before I came out, I always heard about how they couldn't wait for me to 'produce a grandchild.' I suppose that's natural... I don't fault them for it at all. But it's still something that lays in the back of your mind and might cause you to make a stupid choice just because you think it might lead to somehow pleasing your parents (like settling for less than what you want just because 'time is running out' in the eyes of your parents).

No worries, I'll be the ultimate failure to my family, because I'm NOT having kids. I hate the little shits. LMAO I was raised around little kids. I'm the oldest grandchild on both sides. There's 15 1/2 years age difference between me and my sister, so I was like her as second mother to her and my brothers too. Children love me. These boys I babysit perfer me over their grandmother. LMAO But I still ain't having any. Won't matter either that I'm going to be a kick ass lawyer, who is at hte top of my trade. I won't little demons, lol, so I'll be a failure. :rolleyes:

You and me should go parade around the world together, carrying big signs that say "SLUT PRIDE!" and "I'M PREGNANT AND UNMARRIED... WILL YOU BE MY BABY DADDY?"

LMFAO, that sounds so fun. :D If we really wanted to [[email protected]#$%^&*] with them, we could tell that we're sluts, your gay, I'm pregnant, you're my baby's daddy, and we made the little booger in the bathroom at Disneyland. It is the happiest place on earth after all. ;):D

I think a Kenny/Kylie child would be interesting! At least you would know it would be hilarous as both of you are too damn funny

So I get an email yesterday from Continental Airlines telling me that they want to fly me down to Houston, TX to interview at their training facility for a flight attendent position.

Can you imagine me in the friendly skies? I'd give hot passengers more than a leg.

"Hi and welcome to NY bound Continental flight 123. I'm Shawn your gay flight attendent. Like the plane itself, my exit's in the rear."

I went out to the bar with my friends last night and got my drink on.

One friend told me that another friend has a major crush on me. Naturally I was shocked. But three drinks later, I was making out with my crusher.

I wouldn't call myself a slut, I prefer the term "popular".

I know that NaVell posted his 'goodbye' and announced that he was leaving SON staff. Then I went to bed for the day... woke up and the thread was locked. Not deleted yet, just locked with an announcement from Errol stating that "Random Thoughts are no longer allowed" or some other equally ambiguous/loosely-defined statement. Then I went to work, got home early and find this thread -- virtually the same type of thread as RT, just with a different title name -- while the original Random Thoughts thread has vanished, nowhere to be seen.

I'm assuming that it's probably because of people voicing their concerns and distaste for recent changes at SON. In my opinion, the way to fix that is by fixing it -- not just brushing it under the rug and pretending that the concerns don't exist. That'll only serve to push people further away and widen the gap. I'm finding a big disconnection between a few staffers and some of the members. Certain people should be more involved with the members and the board than they are, if for no other reason than to gauge the climate of the forum and understand just what the issue is in the first place. You can't manage a successful forum that you're not personally involved with enough. Easier said than done, I know. But I think a few people are just missing the boat on the issue at hand, entirely, and I'm just thinking, "Wow, over your head entirely." And yet at the same time, they're not here and involved enough to really listen to the issues and understand, nor do they seem very interested in doing so. Blissful ignorance, if you will, and there's a strong disconnect because of that. It makes me just want to stand up in the middle of the room and scream, "PAY ATTENTION BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!"

Discussion of these issues should be encouraged, not discouraged -- it makes for a better, poster-friendly forum where everyone finds a happy medium. Why just sweep it under the rug and pretend the problem doesn't exist? There's an obvious elephant in the room. As long as things can stay sensible and everyone can keep themselves from personal attacks, everything should be fine. The posters on this message board have always been what made it successful from day one, and I have faith in all of us enough that we can find a happy 'government' for all (minus the new iron fist of the SON TBTB), without being treated as children or treating one another as fools.

Absolute WORD to everything you just said. I was annoyed more than anything when I saw they'd been deleted/closed (it's commonplace to me here now). I think that disconnect you speak of has been going on for some time, before this version of the board even came to pass. There are undercurrents that are still there and in times like this, it's hard not to remember things that have happened in SON-past.

In any case, the "Ignorance is Bliss" mindset of some of the staffers is nothing new here. It's pretty much always been up to the community to fix problems like this ourselves, so that's just what we'll have to do again.

And as far as SteveFrame's farewell thread, I thought that was kind of rude how it got deleted. IMO, we as members were disrespectful into making it into the Whats Wrong with SON thread, but I also feel it was disrespectful for its deletion, since the thread was started by a longtime, well-respected and adored SON member posting his goodbyes.

I know it was getting tense, but a moderator posted a warning that if it all didn't hush down, the thread would be closed. After that, everything started going back to normal and poof! It was deleted, as well.

EDIT: Just saw that Andre's farewell post was deleted, also.

I couldn't agree with you more. We are no less aware that people are leaving SON now than we were then. The heart of the issue here is being missed completely by some, due to a lack of involvement in the forums. I happen to know (I think we all do) that some of the staffers are very much aware of the current climate of SON and most likely are lobbying to do something about it. Makes me wonder why, individually, the entire staff seems so discouraged. :unsure:

If this thread is for random crap,

Never deal with Author House.

They suck a$$ big time.

They steal people's money.

It's a scam disguised as a corporation.

Enough said.

Big word to your post! And by ignoring the problem, you're making everything worse and the problem is going to get even bigger, therefore causing even more problems.

Amen, and AMen to Kenny's post too but I didn't want to clutter the board by repeating that again. Let's address the problem, which to me is the lack of respect being shown to posters and fix it! We are all to blame here and let's get it done. I know we all want this place to be a better place and I know that we can make it better than it even once was. Think before you post. If someone pisses you off, walk away from your computer and then come back. I love this place and everyone here and I am sick and damn tired of reading goodbye threads. Hopefully, we will get Hello threads from those who have left

I wanted to slap my grandma today. Seriously.

Tonight, in my car, she told me that I shouldn't have anal sex because 'the last thing I need is hemmorhoids.'

Say what? What the hell do hemmorhoids have to do with anything? Me thinks some idiot has been filling her head with ideas and notions and she's clueless and gullible enough to buy into it.

What I do in the bedroom is none of her business. I love my grandma to death, but sometimes she really just comes out and says something that's completely rude and ignorant when she should keep her mouth shut. It's almost as if she's going to burst wide open if she can't just say what's on her mind, no matter how out of line it is.

About five minutes after that, she told me how there's a lady she knows who goes to church with a man who used to be gay and then he 'tried sex with a woman and now he's straight and married and happy,' implying to me that maybe I should try the same thing and have a positive outcome. Does she not get that I am happy being gay, just like she's happy being straight?

By this time, I was thoroughly annoyed and told her, "Granny, do you have to screw a woman to know that you're not a lesbian? No. Well, neither do I. End of story."

It's funny to me how she forgets everyday things so easily, but these little comments she makes seem so perfectly scripted that I know they've been on her mind for a while. She might say that she accepts me for who I am, but I know better. She thinks I'm a freak and wants me to be perpetually single for the rest of my life. She's one of those 'I don't mind that you're gay as long as you don't have sex' types of people. She's like Sophia Petrillo (Golden Girls, anyone?) on crack. Only more sly. She'll say whatever is on her mind, but she tries to mask it so that people don't see just how blunt she's trying to be. She's not fooling anyone! And I'm not the only one in the family she does this to... it's just a commonly accepted thing that granny has a big mouth and is going to use it anytime her nose gets to itching.

When the hell will people realize that what goes on in the bedroom of others is NONE of their business? None!

Sorry your granny is like that Kenny. I totally agree with that last line!

I went out to the bar with my friends last night and got my drink on.

I wouldn't call myself a slut, I prefer the term "popular".

3 drinks later should be my nickname, because after a few drinks I am easier than finding a life sized Waldo on a regular, everyday page in one of those where's Waldo books. It may turn some people off, but sometimes I am whorish. I just can't seem to help myself when I see some fine piece of ass walk by, male or female.
