    So there was the whole "Dale thread", and the constant battle between the Atheists/Believers... I just read a thread where a woman singled out the HOTD. It seems there is no subject too small for at least a small group to take umbrage with.

    So from now on, let's all talk about something no one could find fault with... BOY BANDS!
    Who doesn't love a good Boy band?! Guess we can just close the thread now. No one could possibly have anything negative to say about the likes of 98 degrees!

      "Dale thread?"   At least I was polite enough to not name names, but to place ridicule upon me for a thread I posted?  Then ya'll wonder why I would create such a post, lol.

        Oh, Im sorry. I thought you started the thread. I must have gotten that wrong when I referred to it as the "Dale thread." Maybe it was the "Paradigmsearch thread"... or possibly the "Faith Reaper thread".... let me just think for a moment.... uh no. It was definitely your thread that everyone was arguing on. You have probably just forgotten it or something. Don't worry. I forget things all the time.

            You seem to be missing my very simple point, Dale. I used your name to identify the thread. Do you understand? That is not a personal attack, it is a fact. It was your thread and I called it your thread... that's what makes it factual.

    Hi Beth!

    Lesbians with no interest in pop music would have a myriad of negative things to say about boy bands. I'd rather spin your post into a religious debate.  I use to be quite religious growing up, until I started asking questions, learning about the universe, exploring science..and ultimately concluded that Atheism isn't just a rational position, it is the ONLY rational position.

            Kittens are awesome with one flaw only, they grow up to be cats. The Broadway musical has ended (finally), so maybe if the powers that be want to make us super nauseous, they can do the next best thing... a new boy band. They'll be from Japan, call it Fee-Line and dress up like Hello Kitty. Nine year olds will lose their minds!

            On a side note, did any of you hear that the makers of Hello Kitty say it is not actually a cat at all, but a little girl... with whiskers... and ears... on top? I wonder if we should be insulted that they think we are that gullible, or would we be even more gullible to care?

          Ill do you one worse, Marcy. I rented the movie... the first one only. The angst of 15 year old girls around the world was palpable. I swear I could smell them sweating and crying at the same time. The whole experience could be summed up in one word... "gross." There are some things we can't un-see.

        Hey there, Michael & Christin & Marcy!.....what a team you make.  I agree and disagree, depending upon which statement I zero in on.   Christin......awwww, C'mon girl...kittens and puppies are equally as cute & adorable.
        I know absolutely nothing about the Twilight series except for the names and faces of the characters, which could hardly be avoided for a while there......so obviously I wouldn't argue about Twilight.
        Boy bands....Now you're picking a fight with me.....on purpose...you meanies!!   I love "One Direction"
        but before you start throwing rocks and screaming "Booooo  Boooooo"......Being a Mom of 4 adult sons, I have a soft spot for "boys."  Easy enough to understand.....and also, I thoroughly enjoy excellent harmony and they DO have that.  So....what-a-ya-say?  Can I get a pass on this one?  If not then insult me if you must and I only say this because I know you won't.  You're all on the "good guys" list.  I KNOW, because I took a Seasonal position at the North Pole and got a peek at Santa's List.

        So, now I suppose someone is going to tell me I'm both stupid and crazy because I believe in Santa.
        To  that I say.....show me PROOF he does NOT exist!   

        really just want to wish ALL of you a very Happy, Healthy & Magical New Year!......Peace, Paula

    No need for a lengthy discussion in a forum.  Boy bands, Twilight, obviously target a certain demographic.  So, unless you're a prepubescent girl, you're not likely to be a devout fan.  It's all about making money.

    1. Marcy Goodfleisch profile image93
      Marcy Goodfleischposted 23 months ago in reply to this

      Kismet - when I was the age of that demographic, I was reading legitimate literature (Brave New World, 1984, Animal Farm, etc.) - not that junk. I agree that it targets a certain demographic, but the demographic is not limited to age and gender. There's a serious decline in the quality of literature that early teens read.

    Michael Kismetposted 23 months ago

    Point taken Marcy, but It wasn't my intent to imply that ALL young women would be taken in by the appeal of boy bands and Twilight books. For the record, I do concur with you that they're dumb, but not without a sense of purpose.  Unfortunately, 9 answers out of 10 questions is usually--monetary gain.

    For years my older sister had an undying passion for Kevin Richardson. (He once waved to her from a tour bus after a concert and she never forgot it).
