Could we not turn this into a referendum on the reality of this woman's experience or a diatribe about how awful clothes are? For preference, I would rather not talk about how the company's dress code is illegal - butch women (or people like me who... [more]

The music is nice and all, but could someone explain what makes her work "groundbreaking"? Oh, dude, I'm sorry that you don't see it. For me, her work is groundbreaking because: 1. The density of images and references and... [more]

I think the guilt thing arises from the discomfort one feels when one's worldview changes. It's generally not a pleasant experience. It requires you to reassess your own behavior, past and future. Those things are also true of guilt, so that's... [more]

I don't quite understand this. What exactly does your self-deprecating sense of humor consist of? How does your stepson encounter it? Are you working in the living room when he is there? Is this more "I sometimes call myself The World's... [more]

"They can just choose to try to form a union".... It just so happens that I am friends with a bunch of people who tried goddamn hard to unionize the local Jimmy John's restaurants. (And I never eat at any JJs-like place now because I... [more]

It just seems counter-intuitive to me that a union would rather drive a company into the ground than find some way to keep its workers employed. Help me see the light! Accepting unsustainable pay and benefits cuts is a bad thing for these... [more]

So wait, you didn't choose to cancel it, someone "up the ladder" chose to cancel it? Why are you on the hook financially for this? If the people up the ladder are refusing to pay any compensation to your friend, it's certainly... [more]

I think that working people should have high expectations. Why the hell not? What, we should all just say okay, the 1% captured 68% of all gains between 1990 and the present, but I am happy in my career of mindless and underpaid... [more]

Deep down inside, the Young-Girl has the personality of a tampon: she exemplifies all of the appropriate indifference, all of the necessary coldness demanded by the conditions of metropolitan life. The "theory of the Young-Girl"... [more]

I notice that many of these folks seem to be wearing fedoras that don't fit - markedly too small or large. I also notice that the fedora is either worn as a "wacky" fashion item totally out of keeping with everything else (fedora and... [more]

You may as well ask why is Yuri popular. (Yuri being the lesbian equivilant.) You can talk it up all you want, but frankly, two men means more man-flesh for straight girls to look at. Point of information - actually, yaoi and slash (and... [more]

Maybe I should just start treating women like shit, since they seem to enjoy it so much? No. You need to meet more self-actualized women, basically. The women who "enjoy" being coerced (really coerced, not your basic... [more]

Just for information's sake: ways that I, a white person who is frequently read as a butch woman, am invisible/hypervisible: People sometimes just plain old look away. I am sometimes in situations where people are embarrassed by me or for me.... [more]

Of course not, but it definitely drives the conversation one way or the other. I have very few friends who are parents who spend a lot of time talking about things other than their children, at least at first. See, the thing is, I don't... [more]

Treating essentially benign topics as sacrosanct I don't know about you, but as a woman-type-person I get really, really tired of the endless lulz to be found in suggesting that I am an abusive, hormone-driven shrew who is always out to... [more]

Oh hey late-twenties Frowner! I tell you what, this time don't have a breakdown at 29, lose a year to depression and then have a slow, miserable climb back to functionality! No, seriously: 1. If you are having truly intrusive and painful... [more]

Something I experienced that was not about suicide: I was in DC for work (I travel once a year for an event) and going for a little walk before getting the metro to the airport. Up ahead of me a block away I could see that someone was stretched on... [more]

Okay, the key part here is not the initial cruelty, it's the trajectory, the way it always works. What happens? Some kid (some kid I probably would have liked, some kid where as an utterly, literally friendless... [more]

One story about his search for a new wife certainly bolstered this view. Shortly after his divorce, Frampton, then 64, expressed concern about finding a wife between the ages of 18 and 35, which Frampton understood to be the period when women are... [more]
