    Pulling out the difficult questions today!

    on July 28, 2020.

    @SC, I notice you sometimes ask for people to fill in for the QOTD. Do you only need occasional fill-ins or is a regular question asker needed?

    on July 28, 2020.

    @Crazydaddy, we have “regular question askers” for every week day.  I took it upon myself to cover Tuesday, since no one spoke up for that day when we were trying to find “fill-ins”, but I like to give others a chance to ask questions, especially if people didn’t want to take on the regular commitment of asking a QOTD.  @Brynna is a good example and is someone who occasionally has a question, but she didn’t want to take on a weekly commitment.

    Are you interested in asking some on occasion, are you wanting to take on the weekly commitment, or what are you thinking?  I am definitely open to working with someone.   I personally have no problem with taking any question I have to the actual boards, and I like keeping the QOTD’s a little more simple and easier to answer, to appeal to a broader range of users… that’s just my own personal thinking.

    @CrazyDaddy:

    IIRC, @SC would happily welcome occasional fill-ins. Sometimes it is required if she is busy.

    Honestly, although not advertised, I would happily let someone fill in for me on a given Wednesday if they had a good idea for a QOTD. Are you wanting to ask one?

      Worst thing about being male: my masculinity being referred to as masculine toxicity (a close second would be, uncontrollable erections during puberty)

      Best thing about being male: my masculinity  (a close second would be, being attracted to females)

        BEST: I can pee anywhere in the woods or outside quickly…I don’t have all the hormonal fluctuations or childbirth…I can enjoy my wife’s “oral attention”…being a gentleman and chivalrous (I love taking care of/protecting my wife)

        WORST: What OWM said, being a strong God-honoring male as being masculine toxic

          Best: Blessed with a beautiful wife, wonderful children, and fun grandkids! (I enjoy my masculinity, loving my wife, and all things guys can do.)

          Worst: My aging body keeping up with my youthful sex drive! Specifically, my prostate is wearing out! (Edited after thinking more about this good QOTD)

              Best: Giving birth because it’s the most powerful and miraculous thing a human body can do.

              Worst: Being treated like a second class citizen by society and the church at large.

              It’s tough to name the “worst” aspects without remembering those with physical ailments who have lost those physical aspects whether through surgery or disease. That said, I wish The Creator didn’t plan bloody/hormonal cycles throughout the month. Beautiful orchestration, I know, but…
              The best, well, breasts. For sexual and at other times nutritional nourishment. ✅✅

              IA with being treated as second class, it’s as bad as masculinity being deemed “toxic”, especially good masculinity that God created. Society has tried to indoctrinate us as females that we aren’t as valuable as males and it persists even to this day but far more “toxic”…look at women’s roles. Be tough, shoot like a man and beat up men twice your size. Who said that is better??

                I was going to say something similar to @Lucky.

                The best: childbirth and holding our newborns the very first, being a wife.

                The worst: feeling ‘less than’ men for the simple reason that I am female and because our brains work different. Whose to say that my thinking is weird, just because I am a female?!

                  Worst: the craziness of the hormone fluctuation and what that can cause.

                  Best: being a mother and grandmother.

                    BEST:  I love that He has made me protect, provision, lead, grow, and bless those in my care.  I love being able to bring Him glory by doing the masculine things he has set for me to do.  I am thankful and content in how He made me and I give Him praise for how He blesses me.

                    WORST:  Dealing with a fallen world that hates my masculinity because it hates God’s masculinity.

                      Best : Being the Yin to my wife’s Yang.
                      Worst: The odd, inexplicable disappointment I feel when I’m unable or unwilling to live up to stereotypical male “standards.”

                        Worst, periods and hormones.  Also societal pressure to look a certain way.  ETA another worst, not being able to safely go some places or do some things alone. 

                        Best, nursing my babies, feeling cherished and protected by my husband.
