The bear vs man trend is digging up some tiresome and stressful thoughts
  • Yea that much I agree with. I'm not going to 'work on overcoming' wariness of someone who is not only bigger and stronger than me but also more durable and faster and more coordinated and has a faster reaction time and even produces more adrenaline than I do.

  • The bear vs man trend is digging up some tiresome and stressful thoughts
  • Im gonna be fair here and point out that I think he has a point: male on female sexual predation at least has some awareness and laws about it. Female on male is a hidden epidemic. Most countries don't legally recognize that men can even be raped.

  • The bear vs man trend is digging up some tiresome and stressful thoughts
  • I agree that no I haven't experienced mace but if someone is trying to rape me I want a bit more than an irritant spray.

    Given the strength difference between a woman and even a short skinny man I feel I'd want to irreversibly annihilate him because if he gets up again I have zero chances.

  • The bear vs man trend is digging up some tiresome and stressful thoughts
  • I didn't derail anything. I gave a varied set of thoughts that had been bothering me. I don't want to be around a bear either. There are more things you can do to repel it but I don't want to be around a 1200 pound animal that doesn't bother to kill its prey before eating. And the fact that you just breezed past my story about a 200 pound drunk man sending me fucking rape threats and only backed off after I sent him an extremely graphic rant full of death threats right back is a bit much. You act like I have no idea what it's like being a woman.

  • The bear vs man trend is digging up some tiresome and stressful thoughts
  • Imma be fair here and point out that female on male rape is massively under-reported and under-documented because of a wording issue. Rape in many countries is defined only as penetration of the victim. A woman forcing a man to penetrate her therefore doesn't count no matter how obviously it was done against his will.

  • The bear vs man trend is digging up some tiresome and stressful thoughts
  • I really just wanted to get the point across that...there are simple things you can do to deter bears.

    Whereas IF a man has malicious intent...there is jack shit that an electric fence or bear mace or a bell is going to do.

  • The bear vs man trend is digging up some tiresome and stressful thoughts

    Firstly: I'm reasonably sure these women are just kvetching. I often say 'I'd rather drink piss' to express that I don't like something. Obviously I'm not actually going to drink piss.

    Secondly...I do agree it's a bit much to compare men to a deadly 1200 pound predator. I would be a bit fed up of hearing that too if I were a guy.

    Thirdly...that said...I understand WHY women say that even if it's a bit ridiculous. I've had a male friend completely turn on a dime and send me rape threats while drunk. I pleaded and tried to reason with him for about 20 minutes before I completely snapped and threatened to do things to him with a hunting knife that I won't detail because there's no need to make people vomit. Only then did he back off and switch to making excuses and blaming his autism. It was terrifying because there was no reasoning with him. He LIKED that I was frightened and freaked out. It gave him a pleasurable power rush. The only reason he backed off was the threat of said hunting knife.

    A bear isn't malicious. A bear just wants to eat. A bear can be redirected or avoided. You can do things such as wear a bell or carry mace or put up an electric fence around a tent. A man isn't necessarily malicious but IF he is...those precautions won't do jack poopsies because he consciously knows the woman doesn't want it and LIKES the act of stomping on boundaries.

    I don't understand...

    ...how on one hand there's a male loneliness epidemic and women are partly to blame because we're so picky - and yet on the other hand things like this.

    How can we both be desperately needed for your emotional health but also be huge annoying burdens? I don't get it.

    I can't handle how beautiful this song is

    This song made me legitimately berserk. I haven't had that much of an adrenaline rush from a song since I was 13 and just discovered metal.

    ...Oops. I tried but ended up just resorting to dark humor

    I was trying to help a male friend with his depression and the entire conversation quickly switched over into him ranting about how awful women are and how we won't give him sex and how we just use men to provide things.

    I tried sympathizing and he went on and on about how we're just ice cold harpies who don't care about men.

    He complained that his cortisol was high and it was all caused by being single and women were killing him.

    I lost it and said 'scoop your adrenal glands out with a spoon then'.

    Ooooooops. I could have handled that a lot better.

    Finally got a twitch stream working

    I can stream from my phone too which means I can perform outside. First attempt at a stream was just 3 songs from my bedroom but I'll probably do some outdoors on my walking routes. I should be live at about 5pm GMT most days. Anyone who's interested here's my channel...https://www.twitch.tv/voran145

    Zoom concert

    I'm doing one on 20 October at 6pm Dublin time.

    If it's dry I shall play outdoors and you can see some of Southern Ireland as well as the ocean.

    Zoom may cut out at 40 minutes. If that happens just wait a period of 2-3 minutes and I'll restart.

    Reddit Sessions alternative?

    Is it possible we could get some feature where people can livestream? I really miss Reddit Sessions but they were very clear it’s not being reinstated.

    If it’s not possible or too expensive I apologize - I just thought I’d ask.

    New song on my baritone

    Lyrics:

    Smoke spills out past the tavern door The wail of a violin calls Why don't you play you say The pieces wait in neat lines

    Queen Luna rises above the moor I move to meet your white pawn I see the hemlock you mixed with that red wine

    All of this was a blunder of mine You can't take back your words Pour out the ocean and sunder the sky

    I feign to sip from the poisoned wine I fail to see the branched lines I send my queen where rook waits on poised open file

    Queen Luna lours spreads her fell white wings I hear the death howl they sing I load a shotgun with silver They are waiting outside

    All of this was a blunder of mine You can't take back your words Pour out the ocean and sunder the sky

    No sleep for me

    I just went to go to bed and there was a god damn big ass cellar spider waiting for me above my pillow. Too rattled to sleep now.

    Thanks eight legged motherfucker. Thank you from the bottom of my adrenal glands.

    Lights played on tenor ukulele by Brittni Paiva

    I absolutely love this, honestly like it more than the original. It's impressive how she can get such luxurious sound out of a purely treble instrument.

    A new song on my glowing LED uke!

    Lyrics:

    I ventured deep in the ocean, down to the dark plains

    I felt the weight of the water upon my back

    I swam to a fearsome place where no light penetrates

    I gave in to the yawning abyssal black

    I heard her fingers pluck the strings of a bone lyre

    I lost all thought, caught in the whirling of the ocean gyre

    The siren has drugged me, she's taken my will away

    She's taken the red that was once my rage and pain

    I felt her voice in my sinew, the nerve cords of my spine

    My bones dissolved, oneiroid changes took hold

    My skin swirled blue-grey, my limbs became serpentine

    My neck split to form gills, I no longer felt the murderous cold

    Her fingers danced wildly on the strings of a bone lyre

    I was lost to the world, to the whirling of the ocean gyre

    The siren has drugged me, she's taken my will away

    She's taken the red that was once my rage and pain
