This is off topic, but just for the record: I don't hate my dysfunctional siblings---I am only disconnected from them. I just can't relate anymore after five decades of hopelessly no-win, forced-upon role-playing futility. I have, instead, quietly discovered an infinitely healthier, self-preserving solution: (for me) to back away and let my nieces, nephews and great-nephew come forward about their parents and grandmother should anyone curious enough ever ask them. There. Said, over, done---yaaaay! I now return to my life.

Okay-- back to Dan Savage and Pups.

LW1: If there was no open sexual connection to your co-worker's puppy play (only for everyone to call him by his puppy name: re: "Spike"), I don't see a problem in your work place--just a nickname at work.
Peter (LW3): Feel the love instead and don't ever quit. The haters are cowards and bullies deeply buried in their own shit hole of pathetic fears, hypocrisy, lies, and self-loathing. I wholly agree with Dan: they win when we give up. Don't give up! Shocked, mortified and appalled as I am at what recently happened at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, and the idiotic Senate's do-nothing attitude concerning banning guns I am not giving up, either--ever. I survived a toxic relationship with a hater. Keep going and hang in there.

Sorry to be so late posting again (just in time for Hunter's Week in Review)!--it has been so crazy busy for me lately. I have just now been catching up on Savage Love and comment reading, and look forward to this next week's Savage Love Column and threads.
Hugs and VW beeps,
Griz

Dan and everyone please forgive me. The horrible mass shooting in Orlando, Florida (holy FUCK--where I once went through military basic training!) today has me feeling very upset right now. I feel just sick, and am not in much of a mood to discuss dicks.
I'll try again next week.
Hugs, prayers, and heartfelt VW beeps and condolences to all,

My heartfelt condolences to all--this is absolutely and inexcusably sick.
I am performing in a pit orchestra for a local musical, and we wore ribbons
on our black dress outfits at today's show upon hearing this dreadfully heart-
breaking news.
This madness has to stop now. If Congress, US House and Senate won't
stop this, then we need to overhaul Congress, the House and Senate.

@70 BiDanFan: Agreed about the lack of privacy in girls' locker rooms when bathing. Shower facilities in military training bases were just as bad for me. Good analysis on "Carrie".
@80 DonnyKlicious: Therein lies the difference, Donny. What you might consider to be the ideal male fantasy can be and often is a woman's or girl's emotionally unsettling nightmare.
@81 LavaGirl and @83 sanguisuga: Although I never attended a Catholic school (to LavaGirl), I share your angst.

@192, re: nocutename @176: Excuse me! I meant to type "your daughter"---D'OH!
But I'm sure you knew what I meant.

Ohhh, brother. And Griz hasn't had any alcohol yet today.

@176 nocutename: I, too, am really sorry to hear about our daughter, hope that the molester has been brought to proper justice, and that you and your family can find peace and be able to move onward and upward. Sending heartfelt hugs, positrons, and VW beeps your way.

Shame on you, Hunter! Your atrocious choice of words this week in particular is inexcusable.

Meanwhile, our police, fire, and emergency response teams do not have the sufficient means to stop the catastrophic damages from oil train derailments-- damages estimated in millions that could do so much better when funded to rebuild our infrastructure, and assist in public health and safety.
Washington State cannot afford to become the next Mosier, Oregon, or Lac Megantic, Quebec!
The fossil fuel industry and its insatiable glut for profits should NOT come ahead of everyone and everything else.

Big Oil and Coal lobbyist-turned Trump Campaign Manager, Doug "Free Lunch" Ericksen. R-Ferndale, must be publicly renounced from his position as Senator, for corruption and pandering to special interests ahead of State Legislature.

@1 Urgutha Forka: You're also forgetting about aquifers and our sources of ground water, which would become poisoned by pipelines.
@9 seatackled: Forget the comments made by @6 and @7--they're trolling.
