“Well, it's like this: There's a vast range of human expression and likewise of human expression in vestments and styles. They run from the very practical and comfortable to the very ornate and intricate and not necessarily utilitarian and everything in between. People, any one, can choose any style of expression regardless of their gender, perceived gender, size or body-type. Anyone can like anything. Taste in clothing need not fit into narrowly defined, pre-existing boxes that have been long outmoded or uncomfortably constraining for many people for a long time. Would you think the ancient Roman soldiers unmanly for wearing flaps around their waists? How about kilts? Joan of Arc was incinerated by the French authorities at the behest of the Catholic church for the crime of wearing male clothing. That is where that type of gendered thinking inevitably leads, so be careful.”

“"Ryan M. Ellsworth and Drew H. Bailey, questioned 138 women and 121 men involved in romantic relationships in attempt to discover an evolutionary purpose for the female orgasm"

Only guys could ask this question.

"The evolutionary purpose" is to keep women interested enough in sex to have some incentive to have it. No hetero sex, no reproduction, remember?”

Study Reveals Reason Men's Noses Are Bigger Than Women's

Study Reveals Reason Men's Noses Are Bigger Than Women's

Commented Nov 20, 2013 at 18:26:23 in Science

“Has a mummified or fossilized neanderthal with an intact nose ever been found? The study places the cart before the horse by stating that men have larger noses b/c they require more oxygen. Men have larger noses and everything else as well. In general, men are physically thicker, denser, taller and heavier than women. So the nose is in proportion to the other body parts.

Humans do not require that much oxygen. Our already specialized breathing apparatus is more than adequate. So much so the body routinely shuts down one nostril in most people most of the time. Over-breathing and excessive deep-breathing causes loss of carbon dioxide which can result in things like asthma and mis-regulated body functions.”

Bones Rhodes on Nov 21, 2013 at 00:23:53

“--the reason our bodies routinely alternate the air flow through the nostrils is to prevent drying out, crusting, and fight infections: not because we are getting "too much" air.”

Ortist on Nov 21, 2013 at 00:18:27

“Broker, they use the word "disproportionate", so if that's true, male noses are not just a result of males beng larger. As for "Humans do not require that much oxygen", that's not the case for physically active humans. I can see a big nose being an advantage for someone who has to run to catch prey, or chase a basketball down the court, or any number of activities. Goodness knows what you mean about shutting down one nostril, or "over breathing" causing "mis-regulated body functions".????”

theshanestation on Nov 20, 2013 at 19:17:22

“In regards to your point regarding men having generally larger body parts and therefore, their noses are proportionately bigger than women's, the study says that "... as body size increases in males and females during growth, males exhibit a disproportionate increase in nasal size,".

Whether or not their conclusions are correct as to the reason why, it seems (according to the study) that men's nose size isn't just larger because men tend to be bigger than women.”

“Pot is YOUR red herring but for the sake of argument I replied. If it were legal and regulated it would in all likelihood be treated like alcohol and tobacco which don't require a prescription. If dispensing contraceptives, which have been legally available for many decades, challenges your "core values", pray don't become a pharmacist. If you do you're like a vegan applying at McDonald's.”

“Whether you agree or not isn't the point. Certainly there are many pharmaceuticals out there for one to disapprove. If you are a pharmacist and that is your chosen profession, that you decided on at something other than gunpoint, yes. You have to abide by the requirements of your job or go do something else. So in answer to your question, yes. If pot were legally regulated so an Rx were required, for whatever purpose, it would be the job and professional duty of the pharmacist to abide by the law, just like everyone else.

If I'm vegan and get myself hired at McDonalds only to refuse to flip burgers, Guess what? Yep, I'm fired. If I'm a business owner who refuses to serve whole categories of people, I'll get sued. If I'm a bartender who won't serve alcohol for religious reasons, I'm not going to last too long at that job. So pharmacists should be required to fill ALL legal prescriptions regardless of their personal opinions or lose their jobs, just like everyone else.”

“I think that if you are a Vegan, you would not look for a job at McDonalds, or a religious person you would not seek a job as a bartender, or if you are against abortion, you would not work at an abortion clinic, but that would be their choice. In any case, there is this legal term called reasonable accommodation that i have personally seen to be abused by many employees not to perform many of their duties, but in this case I think it would be the perfect fit. If again, we are talking about something approved by the FDA supported by science, you might have a point...But if suddenly this is approved for recreational purposes, I think you should not force anybody to sell it if this is against their core values...but because core values today is synonymous of religiosity and this is now seen as being an extremist, unfortunately I do see the day coming where pot is going to be sold all over the place....sorry for the many parents that will have to deal with so many issues with their children...”
