Re: “As events in the David Chase case show, there's a difference between a man and an old boy

I have a very important objection! This sentence:
"On Sunday, June 8, General Sessions Judge Casey Moreland apparently forgot what it was like to be anything other than a man." should read:
"On Sunday, June 8, General Sessions Judge Casey Moreland apparently forgot what it was like to be anything other than a guy."

Re: “Sick of all the Nashville transplants? Chances are, you were once one too

I've lived in Nashville longer than I've lived anywhere else- well over twice as long as the first 18 years of my life when I lived 1100 miles away.

After moving South, and having met only one Music City native over a reasonable period of time, I came to define a native Nashvillian as anyone who has lived here over six months.

Look at it this way: If it weren't for we Yankees, there would be no Nashville natives to anonymously post thumbs downs on virtually every contribution I make to the nashvillescene.com comments section. And no one would make the comments that only those ignorant of alternating vision and kerataconus would post- also anonymously.

Re: “Sick of all the Nashville transplants? Chances are, you were once one too

It is true that it's becoming rare to find a Nashville native. I work in a business that a spend all day meeting new people and spending 1-2 hours with them. Usually 1 out of every 10 people are from here. Including my girlfriend who's from LA. I myself am a first generation nashvillian. My family moved here from Michigan in the 70's.
Middle TN isn't the quickest growing region in the country just because nashvillians are breeding like rabbits. Yes there are native assholes who want to hide away in the country and hate change, just like there are stuck up transplants that want to boast about how their hometown is so much better.
On the whole though...this is a pretty awesome town with a ton of friendly people. The only thing it is missing is the ocean...and an In-N-Out burger. ;^)

Re: “Sick of all the Nashville transplants? Chances are, you were once one too

I moved to Nashville from elsewhere on a whim around the turn of the proverbial century about fifteen years ago, and stayed three years before moving to St. Louis, Missouri. I lived in an apartment complex near Hillsboro Village, and as indicated in 'this here' post, still regularly follow Music City's comings & goings via the Scene website.

Never once felt like or was treated as a 'transplant' by either local natives or other so-called transplants at work or play while living in Nashville during those three years.

The late Ann Landers was right: 'People pretty much act and react the way that they let other people treat them, whether good or bad.'

DamnYankee: They're not assholes. They just get tired of listening to stupid jerks like you.

I'll bet you were shocked to learn that locals wear shoes and don't carry jugs of moonshine everywhere. (The moonshine is reserved for special occasions.)

Maybe transplants stick together because natives are assholes.

Re: “Sick of all the Nashville transplants? Chances are, you were once one too

Since you've learned the correct pronunciations, is it "La-FAY-ette," or "La-fah-YETTE?"

Re: “Sick of all the Nashville transplants? Chances are, you were once one too

Robbie, I'll say the same thing to you that I said to a girl I met out one night while in a crowded restaurant.

When I told her I was from Nashville, she said "no, where are you originally from?". I said "Nashville. I just told you. I was born here". To which she relied, "wow, you're a native Nashvillian?! You really never see people that are actually from here!"

I looked around the room and said, "Really? Because there are about 10 of us all around you."

You see, just because you don't meet them in your social circle, doesn't mean we're not here. Moreover, because you aren't from here, your social circle most likely consists of others that are not from here. Ergo, why you don't see a lot of locals...

Re: “Sick of all the Nashville transplants? Chances are, you were once one too

Sounds about right to me!..In my 17 years living here, out of hundreds of people that Ive crossed paths with I've definately met more transplants than natives at least it certainly seems that way..And the very nature of population growth IS because people are moving here!..lol...That or there's something in the water...The city has/is most definately changing from years ago...As it pertains to restaurants in particular, its waaay better than it used to be.. I remember my wife and I having to wait 1-1.5 hours in any place in town frequently when going out to dinner...Because there just weren't enough places to eat for everybody @ 6-7pm...And the town often seemed to roll up the streets a bit earlier then also...I had forgot all about Cooker, and now I wont lie.. You certainly have my curiosity peaked about the fling tea!...

"Chances are"? You're saying that the majority of people now living in Nashville are transplants? That is just statistically inaccurate.

Re: “Girl-on-girl bullying doesn't necessarily end when girls become women

I don't think her comment was that rude. I think ALL women need to take responsibility for the fact that we are often really horrible to one another. Why focus so much on her appearance? Maybe she just has a different aesthetic than you do. Isn't being rude about another woman's appearance just another example of bullying?

Re: “Girl-on-girl bullying doesn't necessarily end when girls become women

It never ends; I am over 40 and I still see it. I'm a lot stronger than I was in junior high and because I'm not trapped in a building with anyone, I can walk away from it. But I still see supposed grown-ups engage in passive-aggressive, bullying behavior on a regular basis and it's just sad. My hope for my own daughter is not only that she not be subjected to it, but that she doesn't do it herself. I am doing everything I can to keep her self-esteem high to avoid both scenarios.

Re: “If you don't want to scare off your date, clamp down on your Ben Wa balls

This is hilarious! I had an interesting experience with my Ben Wa's last night.
Hubby thought it would be very erotic if I put in my Ben Wa's before going out for drinks last night...well, it was something, alright.
We met up with a few friends and aside from trying to hide a blush growing on my cheeks, we had a wonderful time...
Until I was on my third cocktail and started laughing uncontrollably and shot one right out! Luckily my panties caught it but I made a mad dash to the restroom to restrain the rogue Ben Wa. It'll take practice but I have a feeling these will soon become my new little friends :)

Re: “For a longtime Scene writer, the public debate over sexual assault is personal

so many of us share this story with you - my first sexual experience was almost identical except for the fact that once the boy had his way - i never heard from him again - i was 14 - he was 18. we had no idea about date rape. Workplace sexual harassment was rampant and we were powerless - or so we thought anyway. Thanks for having the courage to share your story. And for sharing with your daughter AND your son. We have to educate our sons.

So true...most girls are victims of a bully friend sometime in their lives. So glad you had closure. Great piece!

Re: “Girl-on-girl bullying doesn't necessarily end when girls become women

Are you implying American Psycho is nothing more than a 'nudie slasher' flick? Because, while I don't think it's any sort of masterwork, it at least tries to be a step or two above your typical teenage-aimed boobs and blood flick.
