DON'T TREAD ON ME

    So, since this thread was created from a previous thread because it had turned into a butt pic thread, and now this is no longer a but pic thread since the relevant photos have been removed, do we need create another new thread based on what this one has turned into? Which I guess is the arguments for & against the existence butt pic threads. Which now that I think of it doesn't sound that interesting after all. Not when compared to butt pic threads.

      No, and frankly I haven't seen much over there lately that offends me. I'm sorry if you think I'm a prude or living in the 1950's but I think it's crass and classless to always be injecting sex and whatnot into things. Also, L&O having their own group, they do not profess to be a beginner runners' forum. I do not give a crap if you think I look like a prude. I'd rather have a reputation for being a prude than for being foul mouthed, all about sex, and married and flirting incessantly with other men on the Internet. I'm laying it all out there. I'm tired of biting my tongue when you (you plural ad figuratively, not just you Lily) want to turn on me and call me a prude and judgmental. Fine then, I'll just be myself and not hold back. Of course this is just my opinion so obviously feel free to totally ignore it. But by being so defensive about it, it leads me to think the people involved might actually see my point.

       

      In all honesty, between you and me, I agree with some of what you say here. Classless? Yes.. Attention seeking? Definitely. But in the end, yes, I think you're a prude if you keep on talking about reputation whenever it's a woman who mentions sex.

        I never said whenever a woman mentions sex. But the same people inject it into thread after thread in a running forum.

          MJ, You shouldn't be feeling attacked just as FS shouldn't be feeling attacked. Having your own personal preference and boundaries about what is acceptable behavior on a forum is everyone's right. So let's stop flinging insults like "crass and classless" and "prude and huffy puffy". I appreciate that you'd care enough about other ladies here to warn them about posting pics. I myself don't like posting pictures with my face in them except on FB where I can (somewhat) control who sees them, but if you're actually offended versus concerned, then don't open the thread. Offending others bc you're offended isn't right.

                    I'm control C and V challenged on here apparently, but the description of this forum does mention that non-running related subjects are posted here in addition to what we have in common. If I want to see threads that talk about running all the time I check out the other forums here, which I rarely do.
