    I'm too nice and will switch if asked. Mainly because I am forever grateful to the man who let me switch out my middle seat for an aisle on a transatlantic flight when I showed him my hip-to-ankle...

    To quote my instructor: "It's not a how far you let the reins out competition" ;) So go to where your mare is reaching into the contact.

    I turned 40 this year, and celebrated by putting purple streaks in my blonde/highlighted hair. You can see it on my Facebook profile:

    Oh I know!!! I was trying for sarcasm and clearly missed my mark. By a lot! I did not mean to belittle the H/J discipline, I was just trying to poke at a perception.

    Years ago, I helped a friend...
  5. I'm not sure why everyone assumes dressage is too...

    I'm not sure why everyone assumes dressage is too boring. "Flatwork" in hunterland usually means boring endless trips around the ring without any jumps to spice things up. Of course that's boring.

    Maybe it's been mentioned already (I skimmed the thread) - but can you find a good dressage instructor to work with your daughter?

    I say this as a person who fell off, a lot. I'd always hop back...

    That's not courage, it's bullying. You are demanding that someone change their entire concept of self to fit in with your established concept of normality. Not cool.

    I still haven't gotten any...

    Ceylon Star, thank you for sharing your experience. I'm sorry some posters are jerks. Please know that I (and many others) are on your side.

    Did you read the Salon story linked upthread? I don't think that kid was making it up for attention.




    Mind and body are inseparable. Should we force someone who is not wired to "match"...

    Seriously! One the slimiest examples of ogling I ever got was from a 6 year old boy in the public pool bathroom with his mom. The little bastard crawled under the stall door to get a look at my boobs...

    The first documented sexual reassignment surgery was recorded in 1930. People throughout history (some of them very famous) have been living as their non-biologic gender for as long as we've had...

    This is clear to me now. Which is why I am looking to find a new buyer for the XT (I may need to drug it for the test ride) and buy me a new VW Golf TDI.

    I tried on a Tipperary - it felt like I was getting my egg-head crushed in a vice.

    Ovation Deluxe Schooler works for me. Love that thing. Available in fun colors, too!

    I guess I didn't make myself clear. My anxiety was, in part, due to dealing with undiagnosed ADD. The Adderall works on the ADD, so that's one less uncontrolled brain thing I have to deal with.

    Nothing wrong with asking others about their experiences - the less stigma there is regarding mental health issues, the better off we all are!

    That said, I'll own up to being a poster child for...

    My dog is awesome. He's great at dog parks, takes off-leash instruction, and respects other dogs with Issues.

    But I once was holding the only leash in a dogfight, and it was the scariest damn...

    Great idea! I have so many old ones floating around my lab, now I know what to do with them! (If I ever show again, that is :()

    The ozone hole is not a myth. It exists. Have you been to Chile or New Zealand? Better layer on the sunscreen in the summers there because you will get more sunburned, thanks to the spread of the...

    Yes. I've made my views clear on the other gun thread. I have no problem with responsible ownership and use when required. I do have a problem with the hyperbolic push-back that gun advocates engage...

    Not if you gerrymander the districts enough. Most of Texas' population is concentrated in Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio, and they pretty much go all "blue" in the national elections. Thanks to...

    It's all about power. Our society values "manly" attributes and expects the women to follow along.

    It's fine for a woman to attempt to emulate men (wearing pants, building things, getting dirty)...

    Lilitiger, If I still lived in MT, I'd probably be right there with you!

    And, correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think MT allows concealed carry on campus? I haven't lived there in years, but...

    Whoa, read over my response again. Specifically my third sentence. I am not advocating banning all firearms. I was answering your questions and providing my reasoning for not carrying a gun myself....

    I know enough to know that I don't want one (see my reasons below). I have safely handled them and I went shooting, once. I have no problem with gun ownership, but I really, really wish we'd get...

    There's not much hope of that. Especially when the conventional wisdom is that the CC on campus bill is a COMPROMISE. Yeah, because the pro-gun side wants legal open carry everywhere, but they can be...
