Re: “Advice goddess

The Love Bloat: Great advice by the way Amy. Having been in an open relationship I can tell you that they have their issues as any other relationship, period. One is not better than the other nor prone to success or failure more than the other. What I do know is that you should be with someone who shares your basic values. Multiple partners is definitely something that should be a shared value not just an "okay I can deal with that" but rather "yeah, me too" sort of thing! I feel it's also wrong in a relationship to acknowledge the values up front and then after you are together for a while; one of you changes your mind. Unfortunately that is life and life changes. When that moment happens you really should stick to your own set of values because changing them for someone else just doesn't work, at least not for the long run.

Amy's advice about finding someone else is really sound because he is being selfish and that's never a good way to be in any relationship. Bottom line, open relationships work and so do closed ones! They only work, however, if all the people involved are in agreement on how it should work! Been there, done that, no T-shirt though. Just my two cents...

Re: “Witching hour at the AFA

I for one applaud Mr. Longcrier for having the courage to pursue this in a military environment. After all, this is the land for "freedom of religion" is it not? How many resources and tax dollars have been spent on chapels at military installations not to mention the cost of training and salaries for chaplains over the years. For a nation under God...of many religions, I think it is high time they recognized at least one other religious base other than Jewish or Christian origins. Really though, compare the cost of an outdoor circle to a lavish chapel and it becomes a non-issue financially. Also, how many chapels have been destroyed over the years by earth centered religions; I think none. So which religious base has acted more Christ-like over the years. The fact that the chaplain has been open about this tells me he has more confidence in his God and his faith than most. The basis for our society, paraphrased: we have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness AS LONG AS our pursuit does not interfere with the pursuit of our fellow citizens. So far the only religious base that has interferred has been on the side of Christianity. I think it's time to let go and let God, so to speak. Just my two cents...

Re: “AFA sees sexual assaults drop

I served in the late 70's and later in Iraq and I can honestly say the military is strongly opposed to sexual harrassment and assaults at face value only. The military is the best at protecting their own (males) and are excellent at lost charges, lost evidence, missing reports, etc. I realize this a brash claim with little or no background but I do not feel I should have to share personal information to make a point. The bottom line is as long as it remains a "good ole boy" club, there will not be true reform regarding sexual assaults in the military.

Re: “IQ: Live and let live?

Religion is the greatest deterrent to freedom and liberty than any other single element that effects our society and social structure. There should not be a tolerance test needed to be taken in a free society. The fact that you need to ask these questions shows that freedoms are not shared within our community. When will we all just be able to accept each other's differences and support each other in an effort to experience life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Just my 2 cents...

  • IQ: Live and let live?

    A few annual events put the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community front and center in our region. But outside of parades and festivals, it's unclear as to how we rate in terms of tolerance.
