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]

Two things occur to me: 1. Still, false rape accusations are incredibly rare. It's worth saying that, because one documented false accusation is perpetually used to undercut any number of stories of sexual assault. 2. How much of the readiness... [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]

Hmmm...Perhaps this is a result of people having become so accustomed to birth control that many of them have never known anyone who had to deal with an unplanned pregnancy, let alone deal with one themselves? Oh, just give us another ten... [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]

I'd like you to consider the alternative if you're still grousing about the current administration, Frowner. Go ahead and don't vote for him because the wool was pulled over your eyes. But please keep your mouth shut as Romney et al dismantles the... [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]

There is sort of a philosophical problem with online dating, but it's a philosophical problem with How We Live Now, so it doesn't seem like a reason not to use online dating services - anyway, the idea that all problems - and all people - are... [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]

It's interesting that lists like these are used as sort of a hedge - a way to make even death fit neatly into the practical middle class approach to capitalism. They turn death into just one more thing where you have a checklist - Make sure I don't... [more]

I think I'd refer to them as "they" for now. What will happen will either be that someone will correct you or someone will ask and you can say "I just don't know what pronoun they use". While it's a bad idea to use... [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]

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]

So here is how I really internalize that I've gotten old: the kids have totally moved away from messenger bags - like, the thing to have was either a vaguely military bag or a bike messenger bag, a real one - and by kids I mean undergrads and... [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]

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]

It's called the workhouse, and to be honest it's better to have them working and contributing to society than sitting on welfare/charity doing nothing. LOL! Have you actually read the history of workhouses? Or any statistics about how a... [more]

The one thing I worry about with the reception of these videos (which I like a lot otherwise) has to do with a flaw in my own character and with the idea that social change happens predominantly at the level of language. My character flaw... [more]

Okay, there is something I don't understand here: why does living with people (other than children for whom you are responsible) mean that you can't eat what you like? Surely you aren't living with housemates who get really judgey about what you... [more]

(armchair Marxists polemicize I always wonder how one transitions from "armchair Marxist" to some other kind. Like, do you literally have to run a marxist state or can you just engage in social justice and community activism... [more]
