Can gay men have a intellectual discussion without it turning into an episode of Gerry Springer??

    From too many of the forums on here it seems personal attacks are some peoples response when they have nothing useful to contribute. Really hope that changes coz I really enjoy the forums on here and even having my attitudes and beliefs tested icon_question.gif

    When you come to a gay website and make sweeping generalizations about what terrible human beings gay people are (which tends to be your m.o. here), don't be surprised when people start mud-slinging. And you're certainly not above making personal attacks yourself, so you may want to come down off that pedestal.

    Could you please stop generalizing what one gay man does to whole of gay population? May be then people will start taking your arguments seriously.

    possibly maybe for sure you know this is happening at realjock. No one here born again yesterday and some more guilty than others.

    I'd say it depends on the subject, and whether our main trolls feel the subject needs to be hijacked and be-trolled or not. After that, it's all about the intellectual capacities of the correspondents. And, of course, the thread will be turned into a dummy as soon as someone makes a reference to Hitler and the Nazis icon_razz.gif

    Another thing is, why do gays turn all conversations into sex and dating even if the topic is remotely about sex and dating? It's tiresome.

    I see what you're trying to say OP.
    Sometimes it's not long before a thread is overtaken by personal attacks, flame wars and all that stuff.
    Honestly especially with the internet, there will those people who always try look for a fight because they're bored or something.
    Sometimes it feels like the usual instigators do it for kicks and they'll use the excuse that it brings entertainment to RJ.
    Personally for me, I don't see how being a dick is worthwhile ever.

    I think what you really meant to ask is can gay men on RJ have an intellectual discussion without bickering as opposed to all gay men in general.

    Dude
    How many times they got to say it.

    Ben Affleck and Bill Maher are not gay.

    as for RJ: never going to happen.

    I'm only saying what needs to be said coz it seems to many guys just don't want to rock the boat where as me I don't care if people disagree coz if I am wrong I stand corrected and if I am right and it's unpopular so be it. Shit happens just no need to have all the dramas. So many guys turn statements into a personal attack on them purely in their own heads even though if you read mine or many other guys posts often their is a clear and distinct qualifier stating that their is nothing personalised to any individual. Then those same people just go he'll for leather
