    Tackyville

    I think it's a great place to learn about other views and differences. Just wish people could do it without attacks on one another. Sometimes the pages become tacky and crass without a point to the subjects. Thank God we can move on when we come across these pages. Life is to...

    Intolerance

    In the past I've spoken out about racim, sexism and intolerance on EP. There isn't a lot, but I have come across a few. Like the nameles guy from South Africa who used a picture of Nazi Reinhard Heydrich a his avatar. I made a comment about it, he didn't like it, but who cares...

    Quite the Opposite

    Experience Project is where I come to find tolerance and understanding of others. It's a place to be open-minded and express your true feelings, without needing to be embarrassed. There's nothing wrong with the pleasant debate over differences of opinion, but to completely...

    Shall We Institute Censorship On Ep?

    My short answer is a resounding NO!   EP is supposedly a place where individuals can anonymously write about their experiences, and present themselves as they actually are … warts, kinks and all. However there seems to be a number of groups and individual folks who...

    The Only Thing I Can't Tolerate Is Intolerance....

    ? I think if people want to express intolerant views then that is their right, but I don't think those views should be voiced via comments to EP-ers who are clearly battling demons and looking for support.  Intolerance should rather be expressed via individual...

    This Has Been Depressing

     I've been reading around lately, picking up on some spats that are going on here, and what I'm getting is that we are sometimes short on tolerance, patience and tact. I think we need to remember why so many of us have come to value this place.  Some of us are wise...

    You Can Tell From Experience

    You can often tell from experience what kinds of things you might like or not like.   You might also choose to engage with the things you like and avoid those you don't. Sometimes, though, you have no choice because the thing, likeable or not, is thrust upon you. But...

    Shows the World As It Is

    Need to change my opinion on this one because isn't that being a bit intolerent? Our world has so much hate and intolerance for others and the only way to deal with it is to stay open to change and keep some kind of perspective that nobody is perfect and neither is one way of...

    But He Started It!!!

    Tolerate to Put Up With.

    I enjoy a good discussion and debate with others who's ideas and philosaphies are not as my own.  But there is so many who use degrogatory statements and just mean words to make others feel bad.  As a Christian I am more sensitive to the ones who hate Christianity and...
