Wouldn't nipples technically make us, men, transgenders?

Recommended Posts

I was randomly thinking(as we all do from time tah time), that nipples are a carry over from the female developmental stage of the fetus when the sex of the baby is being constructed, and that they are primarily for lactating milk to infants.

since we men usually come out of the womb sporting some mosquito bites, and we take these nips with us to our grave.. wouldn't we technically need a sex change to be fully male? a nipplectomy or something lol

also, as a side note, i've been up for literally 78 hours straight thanks to work, wordpress, insomnia, and information overload. i'm actually having auditory hallucinations (sounds like a very low-volume radio gets turned on in my right ear and random cacophonies of music and sounds will play--and the weirdest thing about this is that i'm deaf in my right ear thanks to an illness when i was younger) and very bizarre wake/sleep states of consciousness where i'm hypersensitive to every fkn thing: light,touch,smell,sound. i've been up for two days at a time before but I don't think I've ever been up this long (a little longer than 3 days). it's a very intense state of mind but also paradoxically dulled to the point of complete exhaustion. I've never been so aware yet so tired in all my life.

I'm about to go crash. think about the nipplezz :ph34r: zz

edit: i originally wrote 78 as 38. i'm so damn flippin tired that when i was doing the math in my head for how many hours i'd been awake, i thought there were only 12 hours in a day.. i forgot there were 24..holy shit lol

Hmmz..Okay, well could be so..but try this one on for size :P Since I am a thin female and have small tits does that mean I technically should have been a boy? That coin can flip both ways. From what I know all babies start out as female and the development to male comes a bit later. Hormones and testosterone play the main role at this point. It has also been shown that pregnant women that are in high stress situations have a tendency to produce MORE hormones...

Stressed women more likely to have baby girls

 

This is also believed to create more gay babies because of timing. And yes I believe one is born gay.

i basically just read "try a female with small tits on for size" and kinda drifted away in my thoughts after that

 

but i would assume you have a vajeen and since babies start out as females, you are fully female. but since i have dingaling, i'm in the middle of a gender identity crisis because i, for some strange reason only beknownst to mother nature, still have your nipples attached to me

That is the rub, you are one where the dispensary of rones..testi and hor were out of sync. I say go with what you feel is right for you. There is no other that would know better. Nipples are really only good for getting chapped in the winter time...useless lil things unless you consider them ( . ) ( . ) caps :P

Being born male or female is hard enough as it is when it all "supposedly" all works right, we are set up from the start to have questions about your very existence and I am just speaking from a sexually/chemically/biologically who I am concept. This builds one's personality and who you ultimately become. The gender thing can screw with ones head trying to understand a male or a female but having both inside of you must be a gift I would think. A blessing of sorts. We always want to try and understand the opposite sex..you have seen both up close does it make the understanding more clear?

Hope that made sense?

Nope, it totally makes sense and something I've thought about before.

 

Speaking of the whole Who Am I concept, there's an episode of South Park called "Cartman Sucks" where one of the kids (Butters) is caught getting pranked, gets mistaken to be 'Bicurious', and is then forced to go to a Jesus Camp to get conversion therapy and cured--meanwhile, the whole time he's there, he's utterly "confused" as to why he's actually at the camp (and the show uses this 'confused' as the punchline of most of its homosexual-related plot jokes). So finally, he gets sick of being told he's confused and then goes on a nice little monologue... "well damnit, if I'm made in God's image, and you guys say I'm bicurious, well damnit then maybe God's a little bicurious too! I like being bicurious!" Little moments like that make South Park amazing

In Frank Zappa's song "Dumb All Over" he sings:

"The Bible says he made us all to be just like him! So if we're dumb .... then God is dumb! And maybe a little ugly on the side."

 

I know the words to that song by heart. I used to rap it at door-to-door proselytizers. They stopped coming.

Wow, I'm definitely young 'cause I'd never heard of Frank Zappa before. Great song! I looked up more about him, he passed away when I was 4 :(

Suddenly I feel very (very, very) old :P

 

I was actually friends for a time with the son of Zappa's drummer in elementary school (late 60s).

 

Dad was Jimmy Carl Black, son was named Geronimo. It was as wild a home as one might imagine.

I was always a big fan of his, and saw him live 5 times in Montreal in the late 70s and early 80s. He was a genius, and that's not an exaggeration.

 

It's worth listening not only to his funny stuff, but also to his instrument music. He was a great guitarist, but also a great and prolific writer of music A good place to start for music only is the CD "Jazz from Hell". Perhaps the piece "G-Spot Tornado". Another good record is "The Yellow Shark", played entirely by classical musicians; he was too sick to be on it at the time, just before he died.

 

A good quartet record, with vocals, is "Zoot Allures". Two indispensable records are "Over-nite Sensation" and "One Size Fits All". On the latter, "god" makes an appearance on "Sofa #2". "Inca Roads" might be about an alien ship landing in the Andes, or it might be about one male musician's "thing" landing on another, female, musician.

 

He was definitely no Republican. He had an anti-Nixon song called "Dickie's Such an Asshole". There was also a great song about Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker (disgraced right-wing TV evangelists) called "Jesus Thinks You're a Jerk".

 

The cut "Porn Wars" on "FRANK ZAPPA MEETS THE MOTHERS OF PREVENTION" has samples from his testimony to a Congressional committee on whether music should be censored. He was, of course, against it.

 

If you ever want to explore a genuine and unique artist of the first caliber, Zappa is it.

Wow.

 

You can see Jimmy Carl Black in the film 200 motels, playing Bertram, the redneck cowboy, singing "Lonesome Cowboy Burt". ("Where's my waitress?" :D)

Yep. Although he preferred to be the Indian.

 

They moved after about a year or so. I lost touch with Geronimo.

 

I recall watching a number of jam sessions at his house. Never any with Frank Zappa present, unfortunately. But this guy's cronies would wail.

Having a mother with a disability, I've pretty much been her primary caretaker for the last few years. She had me when she was in her early 40s, and me turning 28 this year, have pretty much grown up with them side by side as they enter their senior years. Having also had my grandparents live with us for their hospice care a decade ago (they were in their 80s, they moved in with us so they could pass away around family), I've pretty much been around older people my entire life.

 

If being around older people my entire life has taught me anything, it's truly the old adage that age really isn't anything but a number. People hear about folks passing away in their 60s and 70s and thinking "they lived a good, long life" but in my experience that is still young, because that's how old my parents are now and they're just as witty, spritely, sharp and handsome as ever. They don't seem old at all too me, they still act and remind me of those young radicals from the 1960's during their college and early post-college years they used to tell me stories about growing up.

 

I've always had a different perception and affinity towards "old" that I think many people from my generation tend to be inexperienced with. I feel bad for making you feel old because I know you don't feel old at heart[even if your body might ache or hurt]! :-)

 

 

PS. Jack LaLanne set the standard for my bias as to what I think "old" constitutes. He passed away in his mid-late 90's, and had been performing feats of strength and endurance that inspired millions up until the day he died. So in my book, you're not allowed to feel "old" until you're at least 97 :-)

I was reading a lot of the comments on that video that you originally posted, which is where I read that Zappa apparently was a "musician philosopher." He kind of reminded me of a rap artist in the same way that Bob Dylan was a rap artist, even if that wasn't the genre of music it was.

 

My parents have a ridiculous vinyl collection, as well as a reel-to-reel collection and those really small vinyls, I think my mom said they were called '45s or something. She said that she has a couple of things by Zappa, she's going to find them for me so I can listen to them :D Saves me some cash, was about to buy Apostrophe and a couple of other albums of his on Amazon.

 

Those song titles are friggin hilarious. "G-spot tornado" and "Jesus thinks you're a jerk", I can't wait to get baked and vibe out to these. Fantastic suggestion, thanks for introducing me to his music! :-)

It is only when confronted with the idea that someone born around 1989 is old enought to drive—much less be 28—that the inner feelings of youthfulness go: whhhhaaaaa?!

 

Believe me. You will get there. Wait till you have a future conversation with a young adult and it comes out in conversation that they born in 2027 and that they have never heard of Beyonce. Your day will come :P

 

Good on you for taking care of mom.

I hope you like it. I think you'll have, literally, years of pleasure. Before you know it you'll be taking a pair of Zircon-encrusted tweezers and going to harvest some dental floss.

 

Zappa's son Dweezil is still touring and playing this music in a band called "Zappa plays Zappa". Not the same, there's too much reverence.

sometimes songs, great ones, play in your head in the background, to maybe help you recall years before. Maybe you are the missing tab, the songwriter with a gun in your hand, given half the chance, maybe you are, after all somebody?

So today I'm playing around with my daughter, and I pretend to box with her and tell her, use your knees to kick the guy between the legs if you ever get accosted, and then she says, but dad, what if it's a girl.

Well, you can always try to twist the nipples. But dad, how do you pinpoint the nipples, she said.

 

So that's another question I never thought about.

 

Peace!

grew up cherishing Zappa, my brother, not the oldest from our tribe of eight knew one Franks friends who was an accountant who had a nice home in Northern California. It was a lovely house, my brother took me there once.

Frank he said, was a kind fellow, the kind of fellow who was good at heart. Is that all, I asked, well nope, he was also how does one put this, he was really good at math, and I thought he would one day become an economist.

I did not know what that meant, so I inquired. What does that mean, economist. Oh, well, Frank was keen on finance, the cost of capital, all that.

 

Of course this was later after Frank was a star, I think it was seventy three or four. Economy of scale, some people believe in, I guess - he was into poetry and orchestration, a decent guitarist, not the best, but he could

invent, he was all about invention of sound, and the idea of idea. He didn't say that, it was 1973, no he just said, yeah, I knew him in school......

 

 

This one's from 1978

 

Peace!
