I know I've seen this movie... What was it called again? The Micturition Candidate?

Seriously though, this is so completely fucked up. Because even if he is impeached, the Republican party has been rewarded for colluding with a foreign authoritarian government. I mean, what's our best case scenario here? President Pence?

@ raindrop - I asked because you said "an army of committed patriots needs to be going throughout Trumpland, knocking on doors, going to local cafes and creating dialog."

I wanted to know if you've ever had any success with that in a red state. And if you have, I want to know what you said that changed their minds. What do you say to someone who says, in all seriousness, that "Obama is the leader of ISIS" to make him stop believing that?

I've tried, and I've gotten nowhere.

@ raindrop - You live in Seattle, right? Have you ever lived in a red state?
Mar 9 MiscKitty commented on Would Someone Please Explain to Paul Ryan How This "Insurance" Stuff Works?.
@ 15 - Nope. Turns out, widespread health problems like obesity actually have a very minimal impact on our massive overpayment on healthcare.

Republicans are suuuper into the stuff that Jesus guy said, you guys. And in the Gospel of Prosperity, Jesus said "Take from the sick, give to the rich." Also, in Two Corinthians, he said "I got mine so fuck you."

@ 37 - Your data is wrong. Receptive vaginal intercourse is more risky than insertive anal intercourse. And there is no data to support your claim about the relative risks of insertive and receptive oral. You can read more here:

Feb 11 MiscKitty commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Straight Guy Can't Win.
@ Fichu - That would work really well. "These things are within the realm of healthy human sexuality. These things are not. These things are a sign that you should seek medical attention. These things are not."

And the "when to seek medical attention" discussion could be part of a more involved discussion about biology. I grew up during the 90's when schools were freaking out about HIV and before the "abstinence only" monster really got its teeth into our educational system, but I still learned about the clitoris from the South Park movie. That is profoundly messed up. If we taught sexual biology rather than just reproductive biology plus microbiology-is-scary, we would be able to introduce sexual pleasure into the discussion without being creepy: "this is a bundle of nerves" vs "here's what you can do with this bundle of nerves."

@ 29 - Mutual pleasure deserves a mention, too. Way too many of the girls I knew when I was a teenager were enduring sex that was painful because they didn't know that it was supposed to feel good for them, too.
Feb 6 MiscKitty commented on And Now for the Annual Seattleites Can't Drive in Snow Film Festival.
@ 4 - The reason folks back east aren't driving on an ice rink is that the roads are made using pervious concrete, at least in our part of New York. The slush created by cars never gets the chance to freeze into a solid sheet of ice because it just drains away. It's really cool.

Also, yes. Ice is much more difficult to drive on than snow. And icy hills are the worst.

Stay safe out there, you guys!

I just want to mention a couple of other options: implants and diaphragms.

Implants offer most of the benefits of IUDs without the painful insertion. And they are effective for roughly the duration of your average fascist presidency (four years).

Diaphragms are safe, painless, and easy to use. They are less effective than some other forms of birth control (with correct use, the failure rate is ~5% with spermicide and ~20% without spermicide) but a diaphragm can be paired with other methods of birth control for added protection against unwanted pregnancy.
