commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Daddy Issues
My ex is nine years older than I am, and that relationship lasted twenty years.
My current is eleven years younger than I am.
I've gone from having Daddy issues to being the Daddy.
Don't worry about the age difference. Date who you want to date, marry who you want to marry, and let's all agree that #1 is an asshole. (p.s. to #1: I know a pair of identical twins who are both gay. Both, as it happens, also are into older men).
commented on Melania Trump Denies She Broke US Immigration Laws
There are so many reasons to dislike Trump on his own merits that I don't get all the Melania bashing.
If anyone should be bashed--it's the RNC, which claims that (a) every child deserves a married mom and dad, (b) extra-marital sex is wrong, (c) homosexual activity is wrong, (d), porn is wrong, (d) illegal immigration is wrong, and yet they choose as their standard bearer a twice-divorced, thrice married serial philanderer who has yet to live with a wife until their kids are grown, and who is currently married to a woman with a shady immigration past who has posed for lesbian erotica.
Let's put the blame where it really belongs--on the hypocrisy of the RNC.
commented on Hillary Clinton Wins Big In New Jersey and New Mexico, Is Now Officially Presumptive Democratic Nominee
Call me Scott @ 6. Apparently nobody taught Mathematics at your school. If 2383 pledged delegates are needed for nomination, and Sanders has 1589, he would 794 to reach the magic number. In other words, he would need every single unpledged delegate, plus 220 more pledged delegates that he would...what? Borrow from Ted Cruz? Hillary may not have reached the magic number, but it is mathematically impossible for Bernie to get there.
commented on Elle/Esquire Magazine: Science Says Run From Any Guy Who Is Friends With His Ex!
I'm friends with my college boyfriend and with the long-term partner who came after him. I also maintain casual friendships with several people I used to date. My husband has a similar collection of friends. Life is too short to cast good people out of your life just because the relationship didn't work.
The only one I really don't want to see again is a guy I dated who turned out to be a control freak and a compulsive liar. Not worth the drama.
commented on Conservative Intellectuals Turn on the White Working Class
Apparently these people have never dealt with the realities of trying to rent a u-haul and move across country with a) no money to rent the u-haul, much less pay for the gas and mileage, and b) no money to pay a month's rent and damage deposit on advance--assuming you could find a landlord willing to rent to you with no local job or employment history. There is an argument to be made that there is room for a government relocation allowance in lieu of unemployment, but they didn't make it here.
