All those concerned—

      I am male who is interested in branching out. I want to try having some fun with another guy, or especially someone who is trans. I am inexperienced in both these fields but I have a strong desire to try them out. I'm attractive and fun, email me.

I also like women so you all can email me too.

Your third sentence can go either way, but just to let you know that 'try them out' comes across as if you are wanting to try out 'guys, trans people, etc.' as opposed to trying out those experiences with said people. I don't assume that is what you meant, but if so, a heavy tsk tsk.

"hey, transperson, i'm sure you're not tired of explaining how your body works to literally everyone, teach me. also let me use this as another opportunity to remind you that you are not and never will be the same as cis individuals."

also it is unclear whether he is requesting a trans man or a trans woman? (also what he defines as trans…) or is that just me

I don't think this post was meant to offend anyone...it is just one more post asking for sex, and I don't see it as any more offensive than the rest of them. I mean, this guy is clearly trying to figure out his sexual orientation, so it is kind of a bummer that he was attacked. Plus I thought he got the message across that he is inexperienced, so maybe he doesn't know the exact language to use that is guaranteed to offend no one. Hateful comments won't help that. And "trying them out" seemed to me undoubtedly to be about experiences, not people. Anyway, I don't love seeing people anonymously asking for sex online, but I can see why people do it, especially when they want to explore their own sexuality. Whitman isn't always a friendly and inviting place for people who want to learn about their own (and others') identities and desires.

Well, yeah, i don't think OP was like "hmm how can i offend ppl oh i know". But i do think that there is a certain self-centred-ness about this post that makes me highly suspicious, especially in terms of sex, which should be about the other person as much as it is about yourself. Phrasing things in terms of "i want… fulfil my needs" instead of "i'm trying to figure things out… help me" to me is a huge red flag. Also this post alludes to the fetishization of trans bodies which maybe wasn't intentional but is a big no.

I don't read this post as "i am trying to figure out my sexual orientation". Especially the ending, "i also like women", makes me think that OP is in it for the experience not because he is facing some kind of identity crisis. Throughout this post OP seems to be essentializing his potential sexual partners only by their sexual function and the labels that society might cast on them, which leaves out a rather essential human element. OP does not ask for sex, OP lists his desires and then commands "email me". There is an expectation of fulfilment and no implication of flexibility to the desires of his partner. See also "you all can email me too", with the implication that women would want to email some random man on the internet for sex, who has given us basically nothing about himself except for the fact that he is male and "attractive and fun".

Whether or not any of this was intentional is up in the air, but i think that the language we use betrays to some extent how we feel about things. I don't think it is wrong to deconstruct/criticize the rhetoric of this post when it can be seen as problematic in many ways. This is all anonymous, and there's nothing to stop OP from taking these criticisms into account and writing a better post in the future.

If you're into melodic lyrical stuff, Of Monsters and Men (~especially~ Live from Vatnagarðar) and Made in Heights are both really good. If you like dance electronica, i'm a fan of Overwerk and Mosh. Hozier has some good bluesy stuff, and his music video for Take Me to Church is phenomenal. For indie pop, try Ian Axel or He is We.

The only people I've ever been in love with were the ones who rejected me, so I wondered if there are others like that. Maybe we just most want what is hardest to get? I've read somewhere that we get a stronger rush of dopamine in our brain if the pursuit is more challenging. So, we can essentially get addicted to those who string us along or are moody and unclear with us. What a crappy way to be wired!

I'm curious as to what you mean about mocking white people other than poor white people. I agree, I find those "only at Walmart" pics to be very mean-spirited. It's just sad. It's no different than the exploitation of poor, rural America that was Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. There is nothing wrong with finding ignorant views that many poor rural people have to be offensive and awful, but those people are also oppressed. They may still benefit from their white skin, but many of them are trapped in terrible cycles of poverty and mental illness. Some of them certainly are racist, sexist, and homophobic. (And so are lots of other whites who aren't poor.) But that doesn't make mocking poor whites okay. I'm all for calling out those views. But mocking poor whites shows ignorance as well.
—Anonymous
Posted at a quarter to ten in the evening on January 19th, 2015.  link  
And it's important to understand the whys and hows concerning the reasons why rural areas tend to have a lot of ignorance. There's not a lot of money or good schools in rural areas. I never learned about complex issues like racism or sexism or other issues like that in my rural hometown's schools, except for maybe one week in first grade devoted to learning about Martin Luther King. I only remember it so vividly because it was the only time I ever learned about him in school. I never learned anything about feminism, LGBTQ rights, or anything else about civil rights in school. I got all of that from my parents, and the other kids who managed to actually become something in that town all had the same thing in common: parents who'd either gone to college, or were determined that their kid would. I could have easily known very little about the rest of the world as a result of growing up in rural America if my parents hadn't made sure to actually educate me and teach me how to think instead of just making me spit back answers. They are the reason I am here, and bad schools snd poor school districts are why Whitman doesn't get very many kids from rural areas.
—Sorry, went on a rant. But rural areas have nothing and mocking them is just mean.
Posted at ten o'clock in the evening on January 19th, 2015.  link  
I'm generally against mocking any class of people, including whites, because i'm ideologically opposed to that sort of essentialism. HOWEVER, I have seen it utilized to some effect as a way of combating the "white ppl hav it bad 2 #reverseracism" strains of thought. See https://storify.com/IjeomaOluo/when-you-suddenly-find-out-you-re-white for an example of this.

This is the non-poor-people–mocking mentioned above, and it's a way of calling out the systemic problems (and general lack of awareness) of modern middle-to-upper-class white culture. And while it's maybe not ideal, i can also understand the desire to vent those frustrations, and honestly this sort of humor is a fairly harmless way of doing it. Worst-case-scenario, white person gets mad from all dat privilege. Whatevs.

If my parents hadn't been able to divorce their spouses of each of their first marriages, I wouldn't be here. My Dad might not be, either. My Dad's ex was abusive and controlling. My Dad suffers from depression and is the type to feel that he doesn't matter, that he derserves bad treatment, and she made it infinitely worse. He almost killed himself when he was with her. His strict Catholic parents told him that he should have stuck it out because that's what marriage is about, even after he said that she made him want to kill himself. She threw things at him when he said he was leaving. My Mom's ex was the type of successful man that felt that his wife should be an accessory to him, and as that became increasingly clear, she had to leave him. My parents were not happy with these people, and my Dad might have been driven to suicide if he hadn't found the strength to leave despite pressure from his family. I sympathize with my friends whose parents are divorced, but I never judge divorced people because there are a lot of reasons why it happens.

^Just be there for her, and consistently outwardly reassure her that you love her and care about her. If she's open to talking about her condition, be sure to listen. Showing a loved one going through a hard time that you care is the most important thing. It is ultimately up to her to seek help, but you can at least suggest that she try the counseling center, or if she's not a Whittie, counseling in general. Her sadness is not your fault. I don't know her story, but depression is usually a complicated mess of genetics and environment. Sometimes, it might even be only one of those things. Depression can be treated, but not always cured. Counseling, good friends, and sometimes even medication can work together to reduce the severity, but it cannot always be cured. I feel mine most of the time, if not all of the time. I feel everything very deeply and I sympathize with what you both are going through. I've both been very very depressed and watched someone in pain and didn't know how to help. The only thing that really gets me out of it is me telling myself that it is a condition and that not everything your mind tells you is true. I feel that I can finally feel happy and content after years of feeling robbed by depression by basically telling it that I know it's not valid and that I actually do matter. My friends and family have been a big part of my ability to climb out. It took me about a year to start feeling better after a serious episode, so keep in mind that for most people, recovery is a process. You cannot solve something like that in another person. But as with anyone, kindness and sincerity and genuineness go a long long way.

Wait—

      So Whitman is not the nation’s least economically diverse top college?

No, but it's up there. I had friends that got into Whitman but chose less prestigious state schools because of money.

I like writing letters. Just make sure that people know that you just like writing letters and you're not doing it because you're attracted to them.

anyone—

      I want to get into some relationship/something, this next semester. However, I'm not great at flirting, and my looks are either average, or ok. I know Whitman isn't that good a place to have relationships, but even cuddle buddies is great with me. Do people have tips on how to go about this situation and find someone? Thanks in advance

Well it's not a contest. If you don't find anyone in college that doesn't mean you won't later. It's not on most Whitties' priority lists

Recreational tobacco users—

      Are you tired of being shamed for sparing use of recreational tobacco (often by the same people who use recreational marijuana)? Do they really think that a cigarette or dip every month is more carcinogenic than chugging thermoses of hot coffee every day or walking around shirtless whenever the sun comes out?

THIS JUST IN: COFFEE CAUSES CANCER
==================================

Scientists have recently discovered a new link between the consumptions of high levels of coffee and certain forms of cancer, experts say. Dr. Brianna Arnold, who directed the study, reported that she noticed a spike in diagnoses of the fatal disease in college-aged students, and decided to look for probable cause.

Although this link may come as a surprise to many readers, Dr. Arnold says that it is something coffee manufacturers were probably already aware of. “They are literally selling cancer,” Dr. Arnold said in an interview. “When I'm watching TV, and an ad comes on for, y'know, Starbucks or whatever, I just want to puke.”

In response to the study, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has started development on a new advertising campaign titled “Coffee Kills”. Coffee manufacturers will soon have to include disclaimers about the carcinogenic nature of coffee on every coffee-product they sell. It is unsure what effect this will have on the coffee-shop industry, as this study raises new questions about legal consent for drinking what, as Dr. Arnold puts it, is “literally poison”.

There, with some drugs in your pocket—

      You thought it would be fun. Thats what the Beetle's Jon Lennon said anyway. But alas.. now your shaking you're head forever about what happened. And not knowing what to do.

20 years ago, today....and I made the biggest mistake in my life.I went out with a friend.
Thought that it would be fun. We took acid....ALOT. But it was NOT fun.
My state being very drug crazed as it happened to be: I did something terrible. I cut of my own legs (on acid). What did I do?? Then it seemed smart. Because after all the trip was easier when I had only my one half to think about. That's how drugs are. THEY MAKE YOU CRAZY. But now now I will never forget. Forever things are different.
I know it might sound fun but learn my lesson: Don't. Please don't fall for there charms (drugs). Please. If you do like I have done, definitely you'll always regret it for the rest if your life. Be much better than that...for your children in the future.

I only want your best interest.

The entire purpose of this forum is that it's Whitman-specific. Please don't jam it up with stupid and irrelevant copypastas from 4chan or wherever the hell this came from.
