Re: “Dan Savage: Discusing Trump, Misogyny and Sexual Predators with your Daughter

I was roller skating (metal skates tightened with a key) as a youngster very close to in front of my suburban home in Wakefield MA when a strange man exposed himself to me - I really had no idea what this was and stared. I don't recall him saying anything but he might have. He moved on and I went home. I don't recall whether I told my mother vaguely thinking it might have somehow been "my fault" - my mother was a classic over-reactor and would have gone after him with a baseball bat or worse and made a real scene - which I didn't like to see at the time! Nothing happened or so I thought but I never ever forgot the occurrence. I may have been six or eight when this happened. All this Trump stuff in the headlines is very distasteful to many.

Re: “The Oakland Museum of California’s Homage to the Black Panther Party

Looking forward to seeing this exhibit. Growing up in East Oakland, the BP were always very
Much a part of the fabric of Oakland and it's transformational consciousness. It has also been something I felt was missing- a monument in Oakland acknowledging the indelible impact the BPP has had and it's legacy continues on in Oakland and the Nation. This should happen while legacy BPP folks are around to know their sacrifice is acknowledged. All power

Re: “Eleanor Roosevelt's Great Lesbian Love Affair

James and I were together for 3 years and lived together for two until he was moved to another state for job in March of last year.Sept was the last time we spent time together.We went for a vacation and had a fabulous time,not knowing it would be the last time I would see him.He stopped calling Nov,and just sent me a text saying he did not want to talk.I did not pursue it because I thought he just needed some space.March came rolling in,and I found out he got married.How could it be?I found out,shortly before we started dating,he was communicating with a girl from another country and made a trip there once and proposed to her.He made another trip in 2015.She finally came to the country Jan of this year and I figured the reason he dumped me was when he found out she was approved to come to the US.I made the huge mistake of going to the social media and found the woman’s posts of their wedding and trips,etc.That hurt me more than I could imagine.It has been 8 months since I’ve seen him but just can’t get him out of my head.Honestly,I feel very jealous of his now.I wake up in the morning feeling nonexistent,empty and wishing I don’t wake up so I don’t have to feel the same pain I could never get accustomed to.The deceit and the fact that I was used and hurt so bad that I don’t think I could move past it.I decide to seek the help of a psychologist because I knew I was losing it. As I searched the internet, I found cases similar to mine and some,even worse.But all of them sang praises of a man whom helped them restoring their broken relationships,marriages and family…Dr Kene Dilli. I was supprised and decided to give it a try as I contacted his email I found in those testimonies; kenedillitemples AT yahoo DOT com. Behold,after doing all he instructed,he sent me a parcel plus the steps needed as reguarding the parcel.Now,I have got back my lover…James,and he has filed for a divorce with the other lady he married. #HappyToBeBackWithJames.

Re: “Dan Savage: Senior Moments (AKA Questions from 'Sexagenarians')

After my second marriage ended, I did not date for 5 or so years. I reasoned, "After 30 years of bad sex, why would I want any more?" Then there was a tragic death in our family that laid me low. My cousins encouraged me to think about dating again. Because I respect their judgment, I put myself out there on various dating sites with no luck. Being a smart girl, I find that lots of men find me intimidating. Then I found the right site, and the right man. We had great chemistry and wonderful days together for 6 years. There are lots of ways to enhance your libido even in your 60s. Testosterone creams can enhance orgasms, homone creams for vagina help manage moisture and flesibility of tissue. But mainly, it was so life-affirming to touch someone who delighted in touching me back. That relationship ended but I have been seeing another man for nearly four years now. Give it a try.

You failed to mention the wonderful exhibit at the Oakland Main Library's Oakland History Room, "Revolution is a Daily Struggle: remembering the Black Panther Party's Social Programs." http://oaklandlibrary.org/exhibits/revolution-daily-struggle-remembering-black-panther-partys-social-programs
The Panthers were fulfilling lots of basic social needs that the local and state governments were not addressing. That's an important part of their legacy. Check out this exhibit!

Re: “Eleanor Roosevelt's Great Lesbian Love Affair

We had been married for a while and things were OK, I was in love with her, she was crazy about me, but later on everything changed and by complicated exterior circumstances which did not have to do with us, we decided to pause for a while, but still remain friends. But in the end, she started getting cold: she treated me as if she did not know me, she acted too immature to the point where she did not even say hi to me when we bumped into each other (we had the same circle of friends). Of course, it hurt so badly, I wanted to kill her. Then out of nowhere she disappeared. I wrote her for her birthday and she replied little. Some of my “friends” saw she had left and started going cold with me too, as if it was my fault that she had left. The few that were still my close friends and still hers, told me she had moved on, that it was best not to make contact with her. Then out of the blue some months later she reappeared, but still acting like a douche. I was suffering emotionally of course, because we had never even had a divorce, it was just supposed to be a pause, so I did not know how to react, what to feel, what to do… anyway, she kept coming over and over on the weekends, and I had to deal with my “friends” who the moment they saw her, immediately left me and went over to her. Eventually, I decided to give up trying to restore anything with her as she was showing no signs of wanting me back, and started healing. Around four months after we had ended our relationship, I find out she is with another guy! That’s when I knew I had not gotten over her, because I cried, I was mad, it was just a feeling of “oh, poor me”. I could not stand losing her to some other guy, I decided to go diabolical (i.e. via spell). I got involved with a lot of fraudulent so-called spell casters on the internet who ripped me off my money without getting a result as to what I wanted. I almost lost my sanity. Just as I almost was giving up, one faithful morning, I received a mail from one of the spell castes I had applied for spell with but never got a reply all along. He made me to understand that he could not attend to all his costumers then because it was that time of the year for his annual fellowship with his ancestors for the renewal of his spiritual and supernatural gift. I told him not to worry about the spell anymore, that I was done with all of them fake spell casters. He assured me of his 100% genuine work of this gift which he possessed. I decided to give it a try. After spending about 2500 USD (which was due to my inability to provide a whole lot of materials which he needed for the spell process), I am happy to announce to the world that I have gotten back my wife and we are expecting our first baby. All thanks to Dr. Kene Dilli. All you out there tired of all these fraudsters that call themselves spell casters (seeking to rip were they have not sown) and you require legitimate spell for whatsoever purpose, contact Dr. Kene Dilli on his email address; kenedillitemples AT yahoo DOT com.RE-WRITE THE EMAIL ADDRESS IN IT’S STANDARD FORM.

Re: “Eleanor Roosevelt's Great Lesbian Love Affair

What a beautiful and wonderful testimony some time things you don't believe can just happen. I'm Nancy Salinas from U.S.A am 25 years old i got married at the age of 24 with a daughter now, i was living happily, After a year of my marriage my husband now behaves strange and i don't really understand what was going on, he packed out of the house to another woman, i love him so much that i never dream of losing him, i tried my possible best to make sure that my husband get back to me but all to no avail i cried and cried seeking for help. i discussed it with my best friend and she promise to help me, she told me of a man called Prophet Williams of ( prophetwilliamsspiritualtemple@gmail.com ), he is a very great man and a real man that can be trusted and there is nothing concerning love issues he cannot do that is why they call him Prophet . I contacted his email address.And i told him everything that happened all he told me was i shouldn't worry that all my problems will be solved immediately. He told me what to do to get my husband back and i did, he said after One hour my husband will come back to me and start begging, it really happened i was very surprise and very, very happy our relationship was now very tight and we both live happily again. So my advice for you now is to contact this same email prophetwilliamsspiritualtemple@gmail.com if you going through any marital issue or heart break, or you needed to stop your partner from cheating he is the best solutions to your problems. He can use his HOLY spell to help you. his email again prophetwilliamsspiritualtemple@gmail.com and you can also call him +2349029587438 that is his Whats App number too THANKS..

Re: “Why Does He Watch Porn?

Just as my instinct had told me, but was too blinded by love...my husband is sleeping with my best friend. O God! He is even in love with her. I even was informed about this by an attendant at one of the grocery stores I patronize, but rebuked her rudely and angrily because I taught she had an eye on my husband. Times went on and days went past...I was living a life of ''blinded by love''. My husband and I have been married for 3 years now and I was surprised when I found out he has been living a ''happily married life'' of presence and deceit with me just because of my financial flamboyancy. This was how I found out about them (my husband and my best friend)...There was going to be a dinner for couples that resided in the estate, since it was the estate feast day. But I was down with an unknown illness so I told my husband that we wouldn't be able to make it to the dinner due to my condition and he agreed (this was on a Monday morning and the dinner was dated for Friday). The next day, I called my dad and complained to him about my illness which the doctor had examined and told me there wasn't anything wrong with me, of which i knew wasn't true because I was going through hell inside of my body. My dad told me not to worry and asked me to contact our long time known herbal doctor (Dr. Payo Shalo) (who has been God sent to my family in terms of spiritual help; he helped cure my dad off cancer, my mom off fibroid, my brother was awarded a contract with the world bank, just by his spells) on his email (payospiritsshalospells''AT''yahoo''DOT''com) which I did. I didn't get a reply from him till Thursday morning which he explained and blamed on his busy schedules with other of his customers that sought spiritual help. We swung into actions with the procedures of getting me cured of this unknown killer disease that was bent on getting rid of my life. I did all I was instructed by the doctor (herbal). On Friday morning, my husband woke up and told me he was going to be away for about 3 days on a business conference. When he left, I contacted the doctor for the final rites. When everything was done, by 1:45pm just as the doctor had promised, I was well again. I called my dad and informed him about this miracle. I went to my parent’s house which I haven't been able to do in a long while because of the illness...everyone was happy. I was with my parents till evening, and after having dinner with them, I went to bed. Just as I was going to sleep, I got a call from a neighbor in my estate telling me that she could just see my husband with another lady at the estate's dinner for couples. I couldn't believe what she was telling me. Immediately, I drove to the venue and my eyes saw my ears... my husband just leaving in his car with my best friend. I couldn't believe my eyes, so I tailed them for about 15mins and they drove into a hotel...hmmm. I went back to my apartment and without hesitation I called Dr. Payo Shalo and told him of what I just found out. I told him I needed an urgent spell to make my husband develop sudden hatred for my best friend and immediately come back to me as soon as then. The doctor told me what to do, late that night, I got everything done. At about 3:18am on Saturday morning, my door opened. Who is this in my house this early? ...My husband? In tears, he is confessing all he had been doing with my best friend and asking me to forgive him and accept him as the husband he used to be ... I wept my eyes out. I immediately forgave him for I love him with all my heart. Now, my husband and I are living faithfully to each other and my illness, gone forever. Are you in need of any kind of spiritual, medical, financial help? Please contact Dr. Payo Shalo on the above email address for your rapid solutions. (Re-write the email in its right form)

Re: “Dan Savage: How Can Sex Worker Clients Fight to Legalize Sex Work?

In response to Amy Luna Manderino: I would ask her to cite a single peer-led sex worker organization that supports the so-called "Nordic model".

The Global Network of Sex Worker Projects -- the international alliance of such peer-led sex worker groups -- has consistently condemned Sweden's "sex purchase" law and its clones in other countries, with research showing how it has led to increased harms to sex workers and others.

My name is ARRON MORGAN from NORWAY am here today to testify about my true life story many men all over the world today are suffering of small joystick (PENIS) and weak erection of the penis. I am 40 and have lived a very lonely life because of it. I can,t even look at women in the eye because of it. It has caused me great torment through-out my life. I had sex with a lot of girls but also had a lot of rejections and a lot of girls mock on my size. For me the toughest part is not that girls mock on my size but when my wife packed out of the house and started seeing another man. Let’s me say that 75% of men & youth all over the world are really suffering of small joystick (PENIS) and weak erection of the penis. Some men today no longer enjoying their spouse any more, due to the size and weak erection of the penis, because of this act their ladies went out to have sex with those men that their penis is bigger still strong and stand erect. This act broke marriages or relationship.
