This is both feminine and elegant. And this number on Mademoiselle Perry is vraiment chic. Leaving aside the fact that neither of those is a work dress for most values of work... Really? Really? A ruffled polyester shirt dress that I... [more]

How have we not already accepted that slave owners were rich money-grubbing assholes, that cared absolutely nothing at all for people who weren't part of his family. Why is this a thing all of a sudden? Did these people not take history classes in... [more]

It's a sort of silly question, but would be perfectly reasonably framed as "can we read this as the story of a young queer woman?" Which, yes, we can. That does not preclude reading it as the story of a young straight woman or a young... [more]

I already live in a bat house. We have had four bat intrusions into the main house during the past few years. I've had rabies prophylaxis twice - as per CDC guidelines since I was asleep in a room containing a bat - and our little cat has... [more]

Cauliflower rice is the best. Take some cauliflower, grate it coarsely, pan saute it in some - but not a lot, you don't need a lot, just maybe 2 tsp - oil, cook until it smells nutty and tastes done, and then finish by mixing with whatever seems good... [more]

I am a woman and not only is being "treated as a woman" not really important to me, I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. Perhaps the problem was that I meant to write "trans women often feel" and did not... [more]

Never do this! You laudably want to be real about struggles you faced - but the place for that is not your permanent record. And it's not like the struggles were a giant secret, right? Also, never put health information in a permanent... [more]

Why does this produce such strong feelings? And it does produce strong feelings - I see these pictures and I have a visceral reaction of despair, shame and disgust. I assume from some of the strongly-worded comments in this thread that... [more]

I think "Fred" isn't the question here. Can you take things slow with Fred? How do you know him? If you really like him - well enough that you'd date him even absent James - could you see him casually for a while? The issue is that... [more]

I don't know a better word for 'has a large vocabulary and uses it precisely'. If you have a suggestion, I'm all ears. See, this is where one needs a sense of social context. Yes, Obama is an extremely gifted speaker (and that's... [more]

(I try to eschew honey not because of the toil of the bees but because of all the extra bees that die in industrial honey production. I am not a jerk about it because I recognize that almonds and blueberries, which I eat, are fertilized by... [more]

Yeah, this was much worse than it needed to be because of poverty and police corruption/incompetence. I've heard from quite a few people since about the mid-nineties that they miss the Soviet Union, because while it was awful and repressive and... [more]

How do we affect positive change when the very people who explicitly said they'd do X then turn around and do anti-X? At this point I'm pretty sure that if we somehow got Sanders, or Kucinich into the Presidency they'd start trying to destroy... [more]

If this were me - as avoidant as I am, and only giving this advice because you're at the 'what do I do tomorrow' stage - I would go in, pretend it was a normal visit, say what I needed to say and then do a ghost/slow fade and avoid his calls if any.... [more]

The thing is, travel is like gentrification: first come the people who travel lightly, eat local food, think they're not being jackasses (or who buy and repair the crumbling Victorian, or whatever); then come the slightly more jackass people who are... [more]

I always wondered how much of the mockery actually had to do with his ethnicity, actually. I mean, I've watched a lot of these horrible, horrible situations play out on the internet and it seems like the victim is very often someone who is already... [more]

I've noticed that when an act of oppression/clusterfuck happens there is a tendency to find a person to blame - someone to put all the shame onto*. (Or a small group, or an ideology, but usually one person.) When really an oppressive act is... [more]

Delaney is a handsome fellow. Rumor has is that he is a bit stroppy in person, despite the winning charm of his writing. I'm really excited about this book. Also, I love The Mad Man - it's absolutely brilliant. I've seldom found... [more]

But nobody thinks this, on any side of the discussion, so to speak. So I think her premise is badly flawed and the argument she advances is incoherent as a result. I guess what I'd say is that many people think that such inequality... [more]

I don't care if you're young, old, rich, poor, black, white, man, woman, etc....but at some level I expect people in the working world to dress professionally. See, this is something else that I don't quite follow. In my experience, most... [more]
