Oh no Riley....R4t mentioned multitudes of uses for condoms and you mention rape and pregnancy.
I am still interested in the multiple number of uses other than the designed usage for them. However upon Googling it I found that there is already a
post on that topic of multiple uses on ATS survival forum here...
I have purchased a couple of boxes of surgical gloves and put them away. Same problem here as condoms ...shelf life. I was not thinking of condoms
until reading R4t's post above.
I'm sorry Riley...even in humor this is wasted on me..and for reasons alluded to above in my reply to Whitewave.
Wow. I mentioned rape and pregnancy and straight away I'm anti-family and women who fear rape are not concerned with the welfare of the
rest of the group? What selfish wenches.. they must be femnazis or something.
Regardless of gender.. in situation X SAFETY would be the THE main thing to worry about
You did not mention safety ..you mentioned rape and pregnancy...also nothing about anyone else..group or no group. Strictly rape and pregnancy..and in
a topic about multiple uses for condoms. I saw no mention of sex or sexuality in R4ts post..but his emphasis was on multiple uses for condoms.
Frankly if "the group" sees women not wanting to be raped and impregnated as a "liabilty" (your word) .. they can do without women as
clearly they've got no interest in protecting them anyway.
Is this "entitlement"..or "Victim dictum" as pertains to the concept of pyramiding the "main thing" into performance expectations of others even
at great risk?? I am having difficulty thinking this through...you are not being clear here??
I am sorry Riley but your drama level makes it difficult to see your point.
My point was to the effect that if a woman has no other skills or talents in situation X or TEOTWAWKI...other than the "main thing," she has little
worth protecting at huge expense and liabilities to others. It would be the same with men...with no valuable talents other than their consumption
levels. Do you understand the difference??
I put my own brother out of my home after suffering him and his consumption levels for over a year...and for the same reasons. High maintenance..no
real skills or talents, only consumption levels.
Oh..speaking of the "main thing"...I suffered this nonsense again tonight during overtime on the ship. We were assigned to install a large steam
valve in the overhead of the engine room. 'With three sizable flanges and located in an awkward location, we were hard pressed to meet the timetable
as others were depending on us finishing such that other evolutions could begin.
During the course of our difficult labors the two other guys began talking about tonight's game...I guess it is football. Don't really care as I
don't watch sports. But my point is that the conversation was taking away from the job focus and these two other guys were talking about the
game..not focusing on what tools and materials needed to be passed into or out of the job. I had to remind them to keep focused on the job. This was
obviously their "main thing." It was to me nonsense. I don't worship at the altar of the gods of sports. As you can tell I also do not worship at
the altar of the other "main things" out here.
..and so bloody if we're not talking about risks men face? the thread is about female survival yet you seem to want to make it about
worshipping female sexuality at the expense of everyone else.
Sorry Riley...but I get the impression this is the tack you are wont to take by your switching to rape and pregnancy after a topic line about multiple
uses of condoms. Informations usable to both males and females.
