First, let me state unequivocally that I am not the person who sent you and others invitations to join WAAM, but I am a female devotee and charter member of this list. I hope Wayne will be tolerant of my comments. I agree with you about not desiring unsolicited emails, issues to do with privacy etc. I wouldn't like it either. The person who did it realizes she made a mistake and feels horrible about it. Enough said.
When my husband spoke of "crawling out from under a rock" he was not refering to your comments, but to those of Mr. Chamness. I find your comments about "my" insecurity most interesting, if baffling. If it's one thing I'm not, it's insecure, but have it your way. I don't have an opinion on whether you are cynical or not, nor does it concern me.
As I mentioned before I agree with you on not appreciating unsolicited invitations to join these groups....male or female. I also do not think you implied that we were perverts either, and even if you had I wouldn't care. I too have a sense of humor, even about being a devotee. My dear wonderful husband has jokingly and lovingly called me a "pevert" since we met. The only thing I object to and my husband objects to is this stupid, idiotic, incorrect, ridiculous, absurd idea that all people who are devotees are stump fetishists. It simply isn't so. I also know after being online for 8 years and discussing this topic until I am blue in the face that people will believe what they want to believe and no amount of discussing the "reality" will do the least bit of good.
To the women_admirers_and_amputee_men group!
1.. I didn't imply any of that stuff about crawling out from under a rock. That is all about your own insecurity. I think sexual expression is a private individual matter. However: I don't like getting an unsolicited invitation to join a group based on what I thought was private information. I'm less cynical than you might think. I still believe in privacy.
2.. Any group that has as part of its description "a group for women who prefer amputees" is a least open to humor (there is a difference between humor and insult.) But I ask the women on this site: how would you react to an unsolicited invitation to join a group of men who PREFER female amputees. I assume if you are happy and comfortable with your sexuality you would react with humor the way I did but otherwise you might be very angry.
Anyway, I apologize if it seemed as if I was implying that you are a group of perverts. I wasn't. I think it is a good thing that there are women who are not prejudiced against amputees. But if they PREFER amputees, it is my respectful opinion that there is a problem. However, I'm not a moralist. Humor is my preferred weapon. Please remove the "slithering beings coming out from under rocks" imagery from my humor.
