I'm the bitter ol' lady who wrote the "I'm So Mad At You" letter. I want to thank you so much for apologizing and addressing the issue. It may seem like a tiny point, but it's hard to have a sense of humor or glib attitude about something that almost killed one of my best friends (she had several bones broken by her abuser and was held hostage). I have a great sense of humor and love to joke about things, but this little point was important to me. It means a lot to me and her that you reminded everyone that anyone can be in abusive relationships and that you didn't mean what you implied with the slip of your tongue. I still remain a fan and regular listener. Thank you so much again.

HOTDOGGING!! Hahaha. I loved dan's advice to the anal sex dude. I'd also add this: he seemed to mention that a lot of relationships ended before he had a chance to fuck these ladies in the ass. If he's going out with girls for weeks at a time and not letting any trust build, then that's going to make it wayyy harder too. Many girls I know need a lot of time to trust someone enough to be that physically vulnerable.

Since most states can't actually make abortion illegal, and since most people are uncomfortable with women having any kind of autonomy at all, the right (fright?) wing has figured out that the scarier Thought Police approach might actually be as effective. Or is it even that sophisticated of a plot? Perhaps it just came naturally to the local police to view the woman as a vessel rather than a person. If that's the case, it's even scarier. It means that women's rights are still at such a superficial level that the powers-that-be view any progress made by women as a privilege. This reminds me of the time Arnold shut down all the women's shelters here in California. Women seem just as expendable as ever in the year 2010.
