Where are we going? And why are we in this handbasket?

Feb 23 this guy I know in Spokane commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: What Does “Vanilla” Even Mean?.
First, a word from my inner grammar & spelling martinet: The problem is they're assholes, not their assholes. (Unless they like don't wash them or something.)

Also, vanilla-est, not -ist.

Sorry about that, but sometimes I just can't help myself.

Anyway, to chime in (late as usual):

• I always thought mutual masturbation meant using your hands on each other. But hands-on-self-while-other-does-the-same is fun too.
• My eyes glazed over before I could finish all 44 previous comments, but why are we all assuming that HALP wants to be spanked? I thought she might want to be the one doing the spanking.
Feb 20 this guy I know in Spokane commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Why Is My Gay Son Hooking Up With a Girl?.
@5 - I'm late to this party and not going to read all intervening 50+ comments to see if anyone else said this, but:

I was gay long before it was about sex. That stereotype of little boys who want to play with dolls and get crushes on their boy friends is common enough. I knew I loved other boys by about age 5; I didn't care about sucking anybody's dick until puberty came along.
Feb 9 this guy I know in Spokane commented on Senator Jeff Sessions Is Now the U.S. Attorney General.
I know my gaydar isn't great, but every picture of Sessions I see has an invisible banner headline saying "anonymous truckstop blow job."

Is it just me? It's probably just me.
Feb 8 this guy I know in Spokane commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Engaged to a Beard.
Lack of a beard should not be a deal-breaker; insistence on a beard, however, should be.
Jan 26 this guy I know in Spokane commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Reader Advice Round-up.
Nah, they just prefer men and/or prostitutes. Ask any Republican wife.
Jan 26 this guy I know in Spokane commented on "Carnage" is Trump-Speak for "Niggers".
@15 - I totally see where @13 was saying everything in Chicago is just fine.
Jan 23 this guy I know in Spokane commented on From "aPodments" to Luxury One-Bedrooms, We Scoured Seattle to Find Out What the Rental Market is Like.
Lived on the first floor of the Biltmore for most of a year, in 1988-89. A big 1-bedroom on the northeast corner with an eat-in kitchen. $350/month, utilities included. And with our crappy, barely-more-than-minimum-wage job, we could afford it.

I feel so old.
Jan 18 this guy I know in Spokane commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Lifelong Straight Guy Wants To Recreate Magical Gay Sex He Once Had With Smooth Guy Whose Queeny Ways Appealed to Him.
IMHO Wandering Stars is winning this one. Ricardo will hopefully learn that things you say can be taken personally by the person you say them to, even if you didn't mean them that way.

It's like when you're caught condescending to someone: the only polite response is "I'm sorry, I didn't mean to" --- and then stop doing it.
Jan 17 this guy I know in Spokane commented on Crowd At MLK Rally Boos Cathy McMorris Rodgers.
@5 - it's not that she was thinking of the town's health as being more important than her husband's. Reading on (after the part where she says that once Obamacare became law she didn't think they could take it away again):

I don't know. I guess I thought that, you know, he would not do this. That they would not do this, would not take the insurance away. Knowing that it's affecting so many people’s lives. I mean, what are you to do then if you cannot … purchase, cannot pay for the insurance?

You know, what are we to do?

So I don't know. Maybe he's thinking about, you know, the little people that are not making the big money, like what they make in New York and Washington and all the places that, you know, this is not, you know, something — this is people’s lives that's being affected.


That part is so sad. She sounds like she's just starting to realize that maybe he really did mean exactly what he said and, if so, her family is going to be fucked.
