      Well, it appears the beast has struck back! I'm on to tackle that now, wish me luck! I just hope he doesn't realize my age and start to patronize me (although it seems he already has, anyway) :P

        Thanks! I do hope this doesn't go on too long, though, because I've just checked some of his other posts on the same thread, and he seems to be in the opinion that the past was better than today (even though the world is actually getting more peaceful) and that Hillary Clinton is significantly worse than Donald Trump. In retrospect, I think this debate might have been a waste of time :O

        I don't always know what the right thing to do is in a situation like this. Going by the comment section after pretty much every article ever on the internet, neither does anyone else!
        I tend to draw the line at people who think Trump is a-ok: where's the common ground!? I myself let it go, but I respect the viewpoint that says we should stay engaged.

        Just wanted to say thanks for the virtual camaraderie :) by the looks of it I don't think I'm getting another reply (he liked yours and my post a while ago, which was enough time passed to write a counter-argument), but this has been my first internet debate (other than the youtube comments section, but we all know that place to be less-than-civilized), so I think its been a good run. Thanks again!

      Hi, I know this is quite random (my apologies), but I just wanted to say thanks for the rating on my post! It's very appreciated, I was actually quite scared to post it since I knew a can of worms would be opened. I was regretting posting it once i did , but your rating made me feel much better :)

        No need to apologise! An excellent post, both in form and content. When I came across the phrase "toxic femininity", I let out an involuntary groan. Sometimes I'm up to the challenge, sometimes not.
        I'm glad you picked up the gauntlet.

      Canadian here too, boy do we have snow here in northern Que. Just finished arguing with my neighbor about his snowblowing efforts, which tend toward being dumped on my property. The four foot fences are piled to the top already!

      No one posted on your wall yet? Well, greetings from a fellow Canadian, though in a warmer climate at the moment :-) No snow boots needed at this time!

        No snow yet in NS but there will be snow again soon for this penguin. Was now in Toronto when I was there a few weeks ago but I guess it might have melted by now.

        Thanks! I didn't know that this wall was a thing.
        Oh man, was there ever snow before xmas; rainy days since took care of a lot of it.
        Come back OkRad: the Liberals are back in power!

        Heh. Believe me, I have looked into it. All my extended family is up there, mostly in London, Waterloo, Welland, Niagara Falls, Sherkston, St Catherines.......That is where all the "OkRads" live :-D In fact, there are so many "OkRads" who have lived there for so long, that there is a town named after my kin.
