Don't be jealous, APK. I'm sure someday you'll find a woman willing to spend a few minutes with you. She may not technically be alive, or human, but she'll be all yours.

Didn't you read the bulletin? Little boys are always attacking the girls they secretly like. Obviously APK thinks it gives him an aura of boyish charm.

But not to worry - his personality is sufficient to turn off anything with a pulse.

That would certainly explain some of his fixations.

I wasn't speaking to the specific case because of the guilty plea.

FWIW, I read somewhere (MRA site?) that woman-woman violence is particularly bad and particularly underreported.

And I don't know how to fix things either. You slap the hands of people making false claims, and legitimate victims clam up. You do nothing, and you encourage people like my ex wife.

Getting rape prosecuted has long provided its own set of deeply frustrating difficulties, from belligerent questioning of accusers to blatant refusal to investigate claims.

Let's not forget the not insignificant problem of false claims. Are there as many as the MRA's claim? Doubtful. Are there as few as the feminists claim? Not a chance.

$10,000 isn't close to enough to be saving for later life. You only (typically) get about 35 years of working life, and most of us will get around 30-35 years as a pensioner. That means that you're currently setting yourself up to be living on $10,000 a year (assuming investment keeps up with inflation).

You must be European. Retirement age in the US ~67, no way 'most of us' are making it to late 90's.
