Icon10 If you were to come back to life again in another world?


what would you be?
A lady
a Gent
or a mix of the two?

Or would you just come back the same as you again?

There are many variables you are missing. The subtleties of privilege that are rarely discussed, can I be a pretty lady?

If I am a mix of the two, am I allowed to UFC women with my superior man-strength?

I dunno, an open-ended question rarely gets a straight response.

You can. I mean have you a model in mind?:

I dunno, an open-ended question rarely gets a straight response.

It depends what you mean by a third gender? Gender is largely binary, but there is that small minority who does not fit into either category.

Do I "believe" in a third gender? Belief is the appropriate word because it has no more scientific credence than religion.

So No. Thanks for asking.

Ultimate Fighting Championship, which basically boils down to two skills: brazilian jiu jitsu which I was luck enough to learn when young and boxing, which I was also lucky enough to learn when young.

Do not get me wrong, I would not survive the upper echelons of UFC, but the UFC has proved that punching and staying on your feet is of utmost importance, and when you get taken down, grappling is of upmost importance. I was lucky enough to learn both.

Wow really?
That must have been quite a thing to do.
I don't like boxing.

("...me I'd return as myself as I've always liked myself..." smiled the goblin liking what he saw of himself in the mirror, not that that made him handsome to others though, just the mirror showed a face that he liked, that's all, then adding "...I wouldn't want to be born a woman, as I'm mostly blue pill but can enjoy the red pill lifestyle too, no I guess one is not ready for anything if one can't first get by without it, so in any other world and I'd still be me in it...")

Hello there fleamailman.
How do you mean by:
''blue pill but can enjoy the red pill lifestyle too''?

"...mgtow language Nacia, blue pill means chasing women, whereas red pill is men going their own way instead, just I'm blue pill till I have to go red pill then..." explained the goblin without going into detail here

"...well you already are wonderwoman..." laughed the goblin loving the poetry he saw, adding "...often it takes two reads to see what you're getting at though, and the pictures are pretty good matches as the poems look so much better for them...", in fact, the goblin kind of knew that the picture part was real hard part, explaining "...naah one can edit the wording to suit one's aims, but finding the right picture means both the time and effort of finding them, still it's a great way to visualize texts though..."

Since I have always considered myself more of an observer of life, than a participant (although my penchant for close observation has required my participation in more things than I like to admit), and I feel I've served myself well with my observations, I would probably come back as myself.

"Served myself well" might not be as arrogant as it seems, Chinner. Fifty-eight years of close observation, and all I've got is a forty-eight year old flatbed dump truck, a thirty-one year old Ford Ranger, a bunch of old tools, an inherited house and a lot of stories.

But I don't need much, so in my mind I've "served myself well."

How about the 1970s version, as portrayed by Linda Lovelace?

I'd use this to go back to 1861.

I'd come back as Jefferson Davis, and refuse to fire on Fort Sumter, emancipate the slaves, and make any Indians in the Confederate states citizens instead of members of quasi (or pretend) sovereign Indian Nations.



Such actions would have scorched the britches of the upper 2% of both the Union and Confederacy.

@Mohican, i don't watch classics. or oldies. mainly cause i think the acting was too shitty and i'm much to young to sympathize other than audrey hepburn.
