If that's your idea of "mayonnaise-colored", it may be time to clean out your fridge.
Jun 22 Amanda commented on A California Woman Is Accusing Donald Trump of Raping Her When She Was 13 Years Old.
People get excited about rape allegations against someone whose politics they hate. That's gross. That everyone is so eager to believe these accusations against Trump while dismissing those against Bill Clinton is just another example of how fucked up we can be in dealing with this issue.

Who has a better chance of beating Trump? I honestly don't know.

We've entered Fox News territory with that caption.
Jan 6 Amanda commented on Hugo House Makes a Good Move—To First Hill, Temporarily.
The paragraph on Hugo himself seems unnecessarily hostile. He "never set foot" in the house? He died several years before it was founded. And how is it relevant that some people in Montana didn't like one of his poems?

@64 "It's like an asshole party."

And you're the belle of the ball?

88 is right on one point: declining an invitation like this really amounts to shirking one of your duties as a member of the wedding party. Others involved will have to pick up the slack -- not just financially, but socially. They'll be down a member of the team that's supposed to be showing the bride a good time.

For the record, my husband and I had a coed bachelor/ette at a regular strip club (naked ladies) followed by partying at a friend's house. I would not have pressured anyone to attend, but I probably would have been privately bummed out if any of our closest friends had bowed out citing "discomfort". Luckily, our friends are mostly laid back good sports who knew we'd do the same for them. In the years since, we have done the same for many of them, and without complaint.

Ricardo -- Yeeeshhh. I'm not the penis partying type, but I'd attend one over having to spend time with someone like you.

@35 -- Good point. I could easily see this LW being a sensitive snowflake who took offense to a pretty straightforward email.

I also wonder whether she knows for sure that she's going to be inundated with penis paraphernalia or if she's just making an assumption about what type of party this will be.

The LW is the one creating the drama by taking herself waaaayyyyy too seriously. As a straight woman, a penis-themed event would not be my first choice, but whatever. It's a silly party and it's one night of your life. Go get drunk and get over yourself.
