  7. MilwaukeeProf   Given that they are invasive and will destroy native species, I am OK with it. It is for the greater good. Same story goes for the murder hornets.

  10. atmarama   The computer has been helping with spelling corrections. Helps to be able to look up etymology, synonyms, definitions, and usage. Not easy to get library help before internet developed better. Educated people would have to learn how to keep their own libraries at home. Thank you

  11. MilwaukeeProf   Good, Atmarama. I still need to proofread because the spell checker occasionally plays games. I was typing "transferred" to my department chair a few years ago and the good old spell checker switched it to "transgendered." I was glad I caught that before sending because "Kayla transgendered here from a different university" does not make any sense.

  13. dragonfly422   There is something that I must address: when someone fills in their profile, and for dating they mark "any" age instead of a specific younger age, it makes me think that the person is willing to date someone under adult age. Does anyone agree or disagree?

  14. MilwaukeeProf   They may. My guess is that Ken wouldn't let kids on here, but that is only a guess. Mostly I just find it creepy when guys do that. They're usually in late middle age and either want "any age" or someone half their age. While some women are into the whole Daddy or Grandpa Complex thing, I just think "ick" when I see it.

  15. CustomerCare   I think they're just lazy... If an age range isn't entered, it's shown as "any". Note that we do not allow site members under 18 years old.

  16. Tveg   I would assume they know eighteen is the minimum on dating sites, and if not the search age range, which is limited to between 18 and 100.

  17. atmarama   With the Hare Krsna belief there is an unusual Grey area regarding marriage in general. There is a whole holy order regarding the renunciation of marriage and there are special arguments and concerns in this regard. I am not wanting to say it, but ultimately the Hare Krsna belief has an underlying understanding that marriage, fruitive labor, and so much bodily identification is less intelligent. However, in the extreme there is brief mention of the child bride in the Hare Krsna teachings. In different areas of the world there are probably specific laws regarding the child bride. In Mississippi the law might be parental consent for an underage girl. But the younger the girl then there becomes a need for a court hearing. The average age difference for marriage more openly stated in the Hare Krsna teachings is for the bride to be around five years younger. Men are very much encouraged to make austere vows and renounce marriage as much as possible. But those interested in marriage need to plan that really well. Other beliefs may even seem

  21. atmarama   Are teens allowed on this site? I do not know. 18 and 19 are considered legal age in some areas.

  22. CustomerCare   VC registrants must be 18 or older. By 18 years old, one can legally engage in sexual relations and marry in all 50 US states and most countries in the world. Interesting factoids: In Delaware, the age of consent was 10 years until 1871 when it was lowered to 7 years old. The penalty for sex with a girl below the age of consent was death. In 1880, 37 US states set the age of consent at 10 years. As of August 1, 2018, the age of consent in each state in the US is now either 16, 17, or 18 years old.

  23. atmarama   This relates to the rearing of children. During their early years a child normally does not know what sex is. The adults in the household are challenged to be great role models. In the more normal circumstances adults are challenged to be great role models throughout the child's duration as a student. The older the child gets the more difficult it is for the child to remain virginal in their understanding. Thank you
