  1. I got the Mother as a gift, and the very first breeding was a roaring success! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!
  2. Gingers, on the other hand, are soulless!
  3. Thank you, this actually helps me! Much later update-thingy just in case anyone was curious: herk and I are fine and friends, and there's no drama. We like each other.
  4. I linked and quoted them earlier. But thanks.
  5. The rules are, in full, as I quoted and linked. I don't see how that can be argued or interpreted away. If a mod rejects based on anything more, then said mod is breaking the rules. I know you don't mean anything bad by it, but I just think you're bringing personal opinion and taste where it doesn't belong.
  6. H, I'm kind of sad that you're writing It's the second time now. This is a direct copy/paste from the Description Guidelines: - If I wrote a tiny, very short description, simply saying "This member of The Hatchling Army has a mission! She is here to tell you about the naming of dragons." It would be just fine, because it describes the dragon, but if I have that and then add more, you won't accept? The dragon is described, thus it is within the rules. Further, the naming of dragons is related to all dragons in the cave, including this one, so it is clearly well within the rules as such. - 2. person is allowed, as long as it causes no confusion. It causes no confusion. Seriously, could we all play by the same rules, please? It makes me kind of sad that you'd reject based on personal preference, rather than any faults...
  7. So the friendly H is you. I've seen you around my descriptions. Thanks!
  8. Very cool! And I love how we went in two complete different directions with it, yet both injected some humour. I changed that other description to: And already got: Accept: Nice job! ~ Bacon So I'm pleased, and many thanks to Bacon.
  9. Accept: Lol! -Svat Reject: He probably isn't the most handsome, though. Accept: No, he isn't. He's supposed to be a vain, stuck-up arsehole. It's somewhat implied, although I should probably make it more clear? I think it was clear enough. Some people have trouble with humour of this type, maybe? _____________________________________________________________________________________ Accept: I have one based on this poem too! Accept: Accept: Who are you, and what dragon? Reject: Needs some rephrasing as 2nd person (you) is not allowed and this seems to be a bit too much about the army vs the individual hatchie -H Accept: Reject: Avoid first-person and use of humans. Now, let's just get one thing out of the way: There is no first person in this text. Also: There is no rule about avoiding "use of humans". What is this... I don't even... As for H's remark, I kind of agree so will be adding a few things. Thanks, H, for the feedback.

    Yep, sex-ed, proper sex-ed including emotions, money, and future prospects, should be mandatory and conducted by teachers trained for that specific task. Sadly, religion and old fashioned thinking (I'm looking at you GOP) would rather arm every child with a semi-automatic, than allow that.

    What would indicate that we haven't already thought? Are you naive enough to believe this is our first abortion debate? That we have never come across the topic before? The only thing you managed, was to make me google a very clear and defining answer to your question, so as to show you how your insinuations about it being wrong is incorrect. That done, you should no longer have an issue with it, and you should know full well that there is a very great difference between 24 and 30 weeks. Have you learned the lesson? Thought the thoughts?

    That makes a lot more sense. It's as important to be careful how you state these things, as it is for the LGBT community to have their issues addressed correctly. I don't think people very often have kids, then think they can go on just as before. But i often see women being blamed for it. The selfishness I see as more common, is a couple having kids as an attempt to repair their relationship. Which, of course, is insane, since having kids is so hard that divorce levels sky-rocket in couples with kids age 0 - 2 years of age. The blaming and vilification of women, both as parents and as sexual beings in the abortion debate, as well as most parental debates, is a deep-rooted facet of the bigotry against women that still remains in western society. A facet like victim-blaming. Both of these hurt women every day. Change our lives. Kill us.

    Human foetus feels no pain before 24 weeks, study says For one thing. A human foetus is only viable around 28 weeks. There is a very great difference between 24 and 30 weeks. Why not google these things instead of asking us?
  14. Sometimes. When I'm at work, I'm considered all sorts of responsible. But, on the other hand, I do a lot of silly stuff on my own time, and my pets of choice are guinea pigs, which adults apparently aren't supposed to have for themselves. I'm 35, btw.

    Ok, I can see the misunderstanding, and I'm sorry. I do still wonder, though, why you'd only mention one parent and not both, if they live together, but I'm guessing that's just us being different. Anyway, if kids are with other people for a work-day, that'd be 8-9 hours out of 24 and not on weekends, so hardly most of the day. (I'm trying to keep it general here, since you family's particular case is individual, and should not be used to judge all parents who go back to work.)

    Question: - Does your SIL send them to daycare, as if she's the only one? I mean, isn't your brother sending them to daycare just as much? Comments: - The illness thing is caused by other parents not keeping sick kids home. This is not a problem everywhere. - And really, kids don't get badly behaved from going to daycare, that stuff comes from the home. You know, the home where your brother is as responsible as your SIL. I'm sorry if I'm coming at you, but I'm just so tired of this attitude that women, and women only, need to give up everything for their kids, or be branded bad mothers and human beings.

    Just the mum's, or do you want the dads to go on part time too? Because really, having a child does not include giving up your entire life, personality and interests. Not for women as much as not for men. Parents who work are not worse parents than parents who don't.
  18. You don't know that the world isn't black and white? What rock have you been living under? (And why aren't you down there now? Shouldn't the bright lights up here scare you?)
  19. What would that accomplish? It doesn't say anywhere (or hint at even) that homosexuals think it's how it's "meant to be". Try harder, 'cause you haven't made sense yet. And, for the record, I'm hetero. In fact, I'm not even the slightest fluent in my sexuality. I just think homosexuals are as human and as right as me.
  20. I like this. I want this too!
  21. But don't you know that homosexual expressions of love are HORRIBLE ZOMG!!!!!!!??!!! In other news, we also don't like females who seem to enjoy their sexuality. Females should only exist to please males, after all. Mhmmm....
  22. I'm one of the dumbest people on DC. You doubt me? Get this: I am scroll locked, and somehow managed to translate that into being FORUM LOCKED, and was upset that I'd used all my posts for today. Take that in for a second...
  23. Now, I don't remember it that way. I'm sure I'd marry you in a heart beat! And congrats! It's nice when things work out like that.
