I said no. I have that right. I said no to everyone who asked me for videos, cybersex and gynecological photos. And I said no to someone whom I had exchanged PMs with. I did this after I learned that a friend seems fond of him. Those are my standards. They will not change. Her friendship is important to me. He didnt respect my privacy and it seems that being politely turned away doesnt sit well with his youthful arrogance. Why would I delete my photos? Is it evidence of some sinister plot to - gosh I dont know see pictures of naked men? Hardly. To quote one very smart man from this site, theyve outlived their usefulness. My photos were misused before as one of the more merciful folks rightly speculated. And having a more identifiable part of me, like my face, even parts of it, similarly misused, horrifies me. Im aware that there is a huge, probably overexaggerated suspicion that women posters are secretly men. Based on the folks whom I like here, and the kinds of threads I like to post to my interests might be better served if I pretended to be a man, not the other way around. Being the only woman posting in a thread will lead to misgivings, as does my very unladylike sarcasm. I know. I know. Will I prove my gender to some people whom I consider to be untrustworthy? No, Im smarter than that. There are transgender and intersexed people here, along with those who give no answer when asked about gender. Perhaps they know something I should have learned long ago? Swearing and name-calling are not my style, but that doesnt mean Im not on the receiving end of such vitriol. The wolf pack is tearing me to shreds. I read as much as I could stomach. Some of the highlights: There is certainty that I am a good friend to a troll whom I do not know and have never had contact with, except to post in the same thread where I gave the poster wide berth because of her/his abusive remarks to others. Not answering PMs shows I was a liar and a fake. The possibility that I was disinterested I guess doesnt factor in. I am some kind of gender-bending cyber predator having a wank or rubbing one out at the expense of gullible men. Will every man on this board whom Ive engaged in the chat rooms, or Ive watched do web cam shows please come forward? <Sound of crickets chirping> My very strong support of human rights must be indicative of something odd . . .or nefarious. How utterly sad. I am a skank who should be imprisoned or at least have my eyes blackened. Perhaps they save their mercy and sense of fairness for pedophiles and people who shop at Circuit City? Im not sure if Ill be back. Besides, the team of writers who supply me with witticisms, compassion and insight, and those who show me how to pass as a woman, are taking some time off.
