Well dang, there's a LGBTXYZ term for 'straight' peoples too:

Cisgender

Cisgender is a term for people whose gender identity matches their sex assigned at birth. For example, someone who identifies as a woman and was assigned female at birth is a cisgender woman. The term cisgender is the opposite of the word transgender. Related terms include cissexism and cisnormativity.
Wikipedia

Interesting how some people put everyone in 'boxes' to justify their own philosophy.

Hyponatremia

Hyponatremia is a condition that occurs when the sodium in your blood falls below the normal range of 135–145 mEq/L. In severe cases, low sodium levels in the body can lead to muscle cramps, nausea, vomiting and dizziness. Eventually, lack of salt can lead to shock, coma and death.

Is there a cisdepravity?


Hmmm, then again, might not want to find out.

But do you mind who owned that Cobra that I posted in the random pictures thread how to 70's era GMC Dually in his yard for many years and at the inlet of the gas tank there was a convex red thing nestled inside the chrome ring. Turned out to be a small ball pressure fit from inside that literally everyone found our the hard way. By pressing on it.

Boob
either of two soft fleshy milk-secreting glandular organs on the chest of a woman
slang for a woman's breast
synonyms: bosom, breast, knocker, tit, titty
Commonly used in plural, as; "Wow! Lookit the boobs on that one!"​

Etymology

In the early 1900s a drafter named Leroy, with too much time on his hands decided to draft up a drawing of female breasts. Here is his drawing;

Boob.jpg

With the logic implied by Leroy's drawing the word 'boob' was felt to be the most PC word when discussing the female mammary glands in mixed company and therefore adapted forthwith.

If it wasn't for the internet, I'd never get a peek inside of your mind, BF. Not saying it's a bad thing. :secret:

insouciance
inˈso͞oSHənt
(adjective)

carefree, indifferent, nonchalant, showing a casual lack of concern.

Insouciance is a feeling of careless indifference. There's a certain amount of lightheartedness in insouciance, but rather than merely being cheerful, someone with insouciance truly couldn't care less.

There is a short series with three Frenchmen discussing the meaning of insouciance.

Frenchman #1 -- "If a husband comes home and discovers his wife coupled in bed with a man and says, 'Excuse me.' and leaves, that husband has insouciance."

Frenchman #2 -- "No... If a husband comes home and discovers his wife coupled in bed with man and says, 'Excuse me. Proceed.' and leaves, that husband has insouciance."

Frenchman #3 -- Neither of you are correct. If the husband says, 'Excuse me. Proceed.' and the man proceeds, HE has insouciance!
