Simplified, hopefully non-offensive version: Don't let your boyfriend stick any part of his body into any part of yours. DTMFA.
Oct 17, 2015 J from Oregon commented on SL Letter of the Day: Lose the Moral Panic.
If you're so obsessively "pro-life" that it puts you into a panic every time you have sex, then what you need to do is stop having sex with someone who doesn't express a specific desire to raise a child with you. Obviously, wear condoms and make sure the woman is taking hormonal birth control, but stop acting like you're the good guy for not wanting to put your moral issues on the woman. You want to get laid even though you think the consequences could lead to a moral dilemma for YOU. Find a pro-life woman and wait until you marry her to have intercourse. Or get over yourself and have safe sex with women you trust to make the right decisions for their own bodies.

You raise a point about the Bechdel test that's always bothered me. When the test says the female characters must "talk about something other than a man" does that mean "talking about a man in a romantic/sexual context" or just "talking about any other human being who identifies as male"? Because if the conversation between the two women can't be about any male human being, that eliminates a ton of perfectly intelligent, non-sexist conversation topics. Like here. The plot of this movie kind of necessitates talking about a man. Should there be more female characters? Probably. Would it make sense for them to have a conversation that doesn't revolve around Matt Damon's character? Not really.
Oct 2, 2015 J from Oregon commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Does a Lesbian Bridesmaid Have to Suck Dick?.
@7: I can beat that.

Strippers show up without any music or anything to play it on. Unfortunately, the bride was moving out of state after the wedding and so had packed almost everything including her stereo. Stripper's "manager"/girlfriend leaves to go get something and leaves the stripper there. He sits in the kitchen while the groom's mom makes awkward small talk with him while we play a game that involves references to the groom's penis size. Girlfriend comes back with a tiny boom box with the worst sound quality ever but no music, so the only way to play anything is to plug the guy's discman in with an aux cable. Stripper, who is wearing one of those rasta hats with fake dreds, removes said hat as part of his routine but leaves his socks and tightie whities on. He also kind of smelled. All the women kept giving him dollars hoping he would have what he wanted and go "dance" with someone else.

To add to the awkwardness, afterward, I went out with the groom's sister (I was his friend since first grade), and she unloaded about how his family thought the bride was a golddigger and how much they hated her. So because I'm not friends with the bride, I never got to hear her opinion of the world's worst stripper.

Not only has the Columbine story never been confirmed, it's been flat-out refuted by people who were THERE. Like, hiding under the tables facing gunmen with that girl.

(It's been suggested that the gunmen did ask a different girl if she was a Christian, but did not kill her, but to my knowledge, that's never been confirmed either).

@DRF: You might have a point, but I think we all know that when this asshole talks about "purity," it has nothing to do with physical health. If what he cared about was whether she had STDs, she could clear up the concern with some blood tests.

Who wants to take bets on when this guy's name shows up on some kind of dating site for people with major kinks? I got two years, and I'm guessing he won't be looking for women.
Aug 26, 2015 J from Oregon commented on Rachel Lark Talks "Warm, Bloody, and Tender," Period Sex, and How I Wound Up Smeared With Blood In Her New Music Video.
@5: Seriously. I hate period sex because I like my nice, clean, unstained sheets and don't like doing laundry. And because when I'm on my period I'm in pain. And because period blood is an awful lubricant and even if I don't have cramps, everything is all dried out and it makes sex hurt like hell. (Orgasms make my cramps worse) And I think my period blood smells. It doesn't make me unfeminist or ashamed of myself to think that it smells. I also don't understand women who think that you need to be willing to just bleed all over the place and pretend periods aren't gross.
Jul 4, 2015 J from Oregon commented on Five Times Famous Musicians Messed Up the National Anthem.
No one should ever sing it again. Everyone in charge of picking a version should either play Whitney's or Jimi Hendrix's, depending on which is more appropriate for the time and place.
Jun 22, 2015 J from Oregon commented on Dear Seattle, Why Do You Hate EMP?.
I only went once. But I liked it. I was alone in Seattle waiting for my friend to get off work and considering I didn't know my way around to anything cooler, it was a more entertaining way to kill a rainy day than going up in the Space Needle and wishing I could see the mountains. I live in Washington now and would take tourists there. It's a little spendy for what it is, but whatever. Sure, the building is hideous, but if you're inside it, you can't see the outside anymore.
