commented on Norway Is Suffering a Butter Shortage
Having a hard time feeling sorry for Norway. Yeah, having no butter sucks, but if "American comedians" are making fun of it, well thats what comedians DO. Norway is a country with one of the highest GDPs, the highest quality of life, lowest infant mortality rate, and has almost no poverty or illiteracy. Not having butter is NOT a tragedy - no one is going to starve to death. We fat Americans should know. Oh yeah, and European comedians and TV shows get PLENTY of laughs at the expense of our fat, lazy American asses, so I'm going to keep laughing at Conan O'Brien's jokes. Lighten up Tommy!

commented on Queer Youth Radio
I think this is fabulous! However, I live right near the town where this show is being produced and, like @1, I'm a little offended by the comment, "A part of the country that doesn't have a lot of resources for LGBT youth."
I know that the LGBT community, especially the youth, have a long way to go toward equality in this country, but I'm pretty sure that the resources here are better than in most other places in the country. This geographical area is very socially and politically liberal. Kids in high school suck everywhere, but I would wager a bet that LGBT kids who live here are, in general, pretty blessed when compared to kids who live almost anywhere else.
Congratulations to these kids and a pat on the back to the producers at the radio station. I'll be listening!

@1 - right on.
@3 - get over yourself. Words mean different things in context. As a woman, I have no problem with using the word "douche" as a pejorative. It's actually probably the word I utter most frequently when stuck in NYC traffic.
On a related note, I do douche. I don't use that ridiculous vinegar stuff, but I have a reusable bag and I douche with warm water when my period is over to make sure everything is squeaky clean before sex. Does that mean I'm ashamed of my vagina and think it's dirty? No, it just means I don't want to have the vaginal version of santorum all over my sheets if there's still some menstrual fluid that hasn't yet worked it's way out. I'm a bit grossed out by period sex.

commented on Sing It, Stockard
Is that really Stockard Channing singing or someone's else's voice? I've always wondered.
