I just want to add as a female-socialized person that in my circles, this would be an incredibly creepy thing to do. I'm glad you find it flattering rather than jerky, but bear in mind when you imagine introducing yourself to these women that... [more]

I'm female and most of my friends are guys, which honestly has a lot more to do with my internalized misogyny. I really grew up thinking that boys were better, "masculine" stuff was better, etc etc and so ended up very much a man's woman...I've... [more]

Fake lashes. Fake lashes would be awesome - a fairly subtle thing, slightly unexpected on the gender front (but not as dramatic/challenging as going in drag for someone who doesn't usually do that). You could get an unusual color like blue,... [more]

If I knew that my partner were thinking "in the next six months I will choose between Frowner and New Person", I would want out. And if I found out later that my partner had gone through a period of Frowner-versus-New-Person... [more]

The thing is, even a "Freudian" slip can happen for a lot of reasons - as Freud would have said. There's a lot of reductionist Freudianism out there by people who have read little or no Freud. The unconscious is weird and subtle.... [more]

I bring it up with the partner, who tends to be slothful. "Partner," I say, "How can we handle this?" Sometimes it's things where realistically I have to nag - partner needs to call the doctor, take meds, finish a project that... [more]

I think you should see a gynecologist or an endocrinologist - or both if needed - who can look more carefully for PCOS and hormone imbalances and who will be open to treating you even if your levels are at one end of the normal range. Also, make... [more]

To her, though, what is she getting out of this? Women perform these things because they have to perform being sexy and desirable. She gives him a blowjob and he is attracted to her and desires her, so she feels desirable and sexy, and that is... [more]

Can you get him on board with breaking up with you? Can you get daily support from somewhere about not contacting him? Family? Any other friend or therapist that you can check in with? What else can you do at 4am? Can you call... [more]

The Mars trilogy also emphasizes the political aspects of settling a planet - unlike some stories of colonization, it does not imply a unified, politically placid and basically benevolent Earth government behind the project. If your friend... [more]

Don't discount the role of differing gender expectations. (For instance, I guessed you were a fellow girl even before you said "not pretty" because hey what guy worries this much about being seen as smart amirite? Just kidding, but do... [more]

And I do think it's appropriate to unpack when someone says something that's obviously the result of racist beauty crap. If someone tells me that they have "Chinese eyes" and that those are ugly, hey, I'm not comfortable accepting a... [more]

If you are unaware of a horrifying narrative about white people, go ask someone who uses "cracker" as a slur against all white people what their horrifying narrative is. Isn't the point about the "horrifying narrative about... [more]

Oh hey, I went through a couple of years of super-intense hypochondria years ago and have (mostly) recovered. I do not take any meds, although I took Wellbutrin for one month back then and experienced a helpful placebo effect. Yes, it was really,... [more]

An excerpt from Daniel Dennett's new book, Intuition Pumps and Other Tools for Thinking, outlines seven of Dennett's tools for thinking. His second tool is "respect your opponent": As I know only too well from academia, though,... [more]

i think it takes MORE privilege to follow the 'clear' writing that deanc talks about, since that's actually unnatural compared to a looser discourse I really wish that we could inhabit a world in which it's accepted that different kinds of... [more]

Some general thoughts: 1. How do the silver heels look with the clutch? Are they complimentary silvers? Are they stylistically similar? IE, is one art deco and one studded, or are both minimalist, or what? Ideally they will have a strong... [more]

Wow, dating has changed a lot since I was last doing much of it. When I was in my twenties, it would have been considered rather odd to be sleeping with someone regularly and still to find the "are we actually dating"... [more]
