Do you ever start to answer a question and then change your mind?

I do (just did). I sometimes even type out an answer and then change my mind about posting it.

Usually I do this when I just don't care enough one way or the other, or I can't quite make up my mind. In a post about the SF ban on circumcision, I had an answer that was just too all-over-the-place. "I don't like bans. I don't like circs. Wouldn't do it if I had a son. Wish people were more informed. A ban is extreme." It ended up being sloppy, and I didn't care enough about the issue to take time to fix it, so - delete!

  • All the time! lol...if I feel like I can't articulate my point well enough or if I'm on the fence about the subject....I've been known to type out an entire answer, read it over and then just decide not to answer the question at all too lol

  • Sometimes. I'm having fun in the SF one, though. It's fun to watch the same people always up in arms about sharia suddenly lose their damn minds when the shoe's on their foot.

  • ^ I always love instances like that in P&CE. I'm always a tad bit annoyed when people start going on and on about the sanitary and cleanliness aspect of circ's. I just want to scream: "Well if you practice good hygiene and teach your son to do the same - what's the problem?!?!" I've always wondered exactly how women who talk about cleanliness and say "I want sex to be better for him when he's older" have actually seen/slept with a non-circ'd man?
