    The following is from a person who considers himself a warrior?


    A man who is turned on by the idea of submitting to another man, wants that man to treat him, and make him feel like a woman, wants that man to be in charge.. Wants to submit to his masculinity and manhood giving up his own is weak.. I'm not going to look at that guy and feel or see the definitions I go by as to what masculinity and being a man is.. I'm not even going to see or feel the beauty or power of the femininity I see, and feel in a woman. I'm not going to try to abuse the guy, I'm not gonna deny him fair treatment, I'm just not going see him as masculine or man-like, just a male gender-wise.

    A true warrior is silent, strong, and humble. Being a warrior means standing up for what is righteous and honorable. A warrior could be masculine or feminine, male or female, top or bottom. The path to becoming a warrior is simple and straight-forward, with consciousness and mindful living.

    I actually heard she lost a child, and reevaluated her religious views as a result of that sad event. Since she has become much more reasonable, and in fact ran into some poster on another forum at The Abbey, if I recall correctly. That's how I heard about the tale, and her conversion in thought.

    Just goes to show you never know how people will change, and should always be kind. Even if they engage in particularly childish, fanciful usage of archaic concepts like "warrior".

    There are some words that make me cringe for the sheer lack of sophistication that any user must have, and "warrior" is certainly one of them. Anything that follows is likely to be foolish, and tainted by the sort of "He-Man and The Masters of the Universe" archetype that these terms imply. It's Rex-Kwan-Do, in essense - lameness in search of being badass.

    I consider it an individual who charges into the midst of battle, not always wisely and with the knowledge that the snake whom slithers about unseen and dispatches rivals with cunning and stealth can often kill more enemies than a ram.

    Someone who is engaged in, or experienced in the ways of combat. Someone who has courage, and a strong spirit to stand up for what they believe in, and may very well put their own life on the line, to defend the lives of others.

    Doesn't matter if its a male or female, and not all warriors are noble and virtuous. The ones who are though, and have experienced combat, and have put their lives on the line for others. Are some of the most compassionate people in the world, because they've seen the worst, and the best of humanity.

    I knew some warriors. They were ridiculed and mostly forgotten. I know some warriors who are children.
    Most of the warriors I admire don't even know what they are, and if they did, I doubt if they would see themselves as noble.

    A warrior is a fighter
    A fighter can be very vocal and noticed, or quiet, determined and focused.
    A warrior resists common ideas and bigotry and laughs at how people cling to labels.
    Being a warior has nothing to do with being male/female/gay /straight/top/bottom/child or adult.
    A warrior frequently goes unoticed and doesn't need empty praise and awards of recognition.
    Being a warrior means having the courage to think outside the box, be introspective at times and having the strenght to move around and step over close minded people.
    A "nice" warrior respects people who respect people.... especially those who are weaker.
    A warrior has no problem smacking ignorant people with big mouths.

    man, all i heard in that video was pain and suffering, and then i actually looked at the video and could only imagine that the woman must've been under a lot of stress in so much pain, and suffering in her heart so much at that moment. wow, i'm sending my prayers for her happiness right now.
