Read (and I'm on my way out the door, so I leave teh googles to you) the blogs Put This On, A Suitable Wardrobe, Men's Flair, Permanent Style and Most Exerent (yep, like that) until you have a lively sense of what suits you might like - especially if... [more]

I have lived in Chicago and Minneapolis. Things I miss about Chicago: good Italian, good Greek, good French, good Polish; broad choice of independent bookstores; multiple neighborhoods that basically do the same thing but different (ie, there... [more]

All that "click" means is that there is something in your personalities that...effervesces, that reacts strongly together, that you meet each others' needs in some strong way. I've definitely had situations where the... [more]

As someone who's seen the same thing - do you honestly think it's the women being worried about turning their rapists over to a shitty court system, or do you think maybe it's the fact that some of the victims were being socially pressured not... [more]

Do you have other relatives who can run interference for you? A sibling or an aunt or something who will stand up for you, who could tell your parents that they support your choices? I'm sorry that you feel gross. There's at least a possibility... [more]

This may or may not be useful to you, but something in your post reminded me of Feelings I Have Had: In your post, you say that you're afraid. And that makes sense - I'd be afraid, too. An additional thing I've discovered from working through... [more]

Noooooooooo! Seriously, please do not do this unless you have very specific permission from the church or for some reason know someone who invites you. I have lost count of the conversations I've heard and things I've read on the internet... [more]

Kids are a lot smarter and more sophisticated than I was when I was 13. I am torn between being glad I am not a teen growing up into the Great Recession and kind of wishing that I could have grown up with more cultural and intellectual resources and... [more]

So if, for example, I bought a Peruvian hat while traveling are you saying I can not wear my Peruvian hat this winter because I am white? See, this is where people have to use their judgement and also act in good faith. Personally,... [more]

Well, it'd be kinda bad if bio women couldn't compete in women's athletics because the field was dominated by transgendered or transitioning men, right? This would break the system. It would actually be kind of awesome for that reason.... [more]

I too am tired of the perpetual idea that kids these days have it "too easy", are solipsistic, etc. It's very easy to think - once you have some adult perspective and a little bit of security in life - that kids should have those... [more]

@frowner -- the "thing" quote is in the post. Oooh. My eye totally skipped that paragraph. I hate that paragraph. I think about that appalling person thinging any of my trans friends and my hands itch for a brick.... [more]

It might be helpful if schools investigated different kinds of bullying. Like, some kids get bullied but have a circle of friends. Some kids are absolutely the goat and have no friends - anyone can pick on them (homo sacer, eh?).... [more]

Aren't veggies pretty much already dirt cheap? Not around here. A bundle of spinach cooks down to very little and it's $2; tomatoes are a once-a-week treat and berries or grapes once a month. I ate mustard greens until I couldn't face... [more]

Does she know what steps she'd need to take to get it hosted elsewhere? If she doesn't, she may be so uneasy about what it would entail that she's letting herself keep putting it off. I've found that I do this kind of thing. If she plausibly... [more]

I'll make a prediction - if anyone in the criminal justice system takes the article/line of reasoning seriously, what we'll see is forced medication, pre-emptive medication and possibly forced brain implants or surgeries, most of which will... [more]

Oh, I had a pair of sparkly leopard round-toed ankle-strap maryjanes from Steve Madden with enormous chunky platforms; I used to wear them with fishnets and the more neutral of my vintage dresses. I still have some Na-Han low platform maryjanes... [more]

Would you eat a turkey lunchmeat sandwich that had been sitting in a bag lunch for a couple hours, one of which was unrefrigerated? I would and have. [more]

You know, as I've been thinking about this, it occurs to me that men's style blogs are the way they are because masculinity is the way it is - ie, the idea of masculinity (not "how guys act" or "all guys think this is ideal") is basically... [more]
