    Well I was answering Agustinos' question: "Which head is nicer to deal with do you think?"
    So my answer is whatI think and becauseI prefer to only deal with my partners heads, either one. Not some fool that pushes himself on me after I make it clear that I am in no way interested.
    Make sense?

    Unwelcome sexual advances have never been a problem for you? I can’t really say it’s been an issue for me, unfortunately.

    Yes unwelcome sexual advances were a problem for me but I learned how to handle them.
    I still don't understand why my answer to Agustino was insufficient for you.

    I might be reading this wrong, but why is it unfortunate that unwelcome sexual advances have never been a problem for you?

    It's a joke; like, "I am still a virgin, unfortunately." The preceding example is also a joke, fortunately.

    Doesn't make sense though. I can understanding wanting to not be a virgin, but wanting to have unwanted sexual advances?

    He doesn't get it. Impaired sense of humor. Not treatable. Next case, please.

    If it's an attempt at humour then it's pretty damn tone deaf (and still nonsensical).

    Some people gain a sense of self-esteem, or at least a sense of their own attractiveness, and maybe some feeling of sexual power and confidence, if they are frequently approached, even if the approachers are unattractive to them. This is a pretty ordinary thing, I think. It can be better to have options. There is self-deprecating humour in lamenting one's lack of attraction even to people one wouldn't want to say yes to.

    Explaining a joke always makes me feel dirty afterwards.

    More evidence confirming diagnosis.

    NOTE TO MICHEL: References to your diagnosis and lack of treatment options are mostly a joke, which, of course, you don't, won't, can't get, owing to your funny-bone impairment.

    Here are three more jokes, cartoons. Please describe your cognitive processing of these cartoons.

    I'm probably just being pedantic, but that wouldn't be unwanted sexual advances; it'd be wanted sexual advances from people you're not interested in.

    You are not actually digging yourself out of the humorless hole you put yourself in. You should probably drop the shovel.

    It could be either I think. But if you're right, I think that makes the joke even funnier because of the hint of absurdity.

    I'm not trying to dig myself out of anything. I'm just saying it makes as much sense as an involuntary celibate saying "I wish someone would rape me". It's nonsense. They don't want to be raped; they want someone to have consensual sex with. And as a "joke" it's a pretty insulting conflation.

    You call it humourless, I call it being decent.

    But that could also be a funny joke. In fact I've heard it told by women as a joke before.

    If at this point you get all po-faced about it, I give up.

    Someone has to be the voice of reason and sensibility in this madhouse, if only to provide a balance to Hanover. ;)
