Aurora Erratic isn't it obvious? .
Jul 16 Aurora Erratic commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: The Piss-Poor Judgment of Solomon.
I'm very glad it worked out for Jacqueline, but I would not count on this outcome! The stakes are too high, and there is no "undo."
Jul 15 Aurora Erratic commented on Celibate Gay Christian Beloved of Religious Right Suddenly Less Beloved.
You know, it's been a long time since I read it, but it seems like there was a LOT more in the Bible besides a few sentences about homosexuality. Why does that seem to be the only take-away for so many Christians?
Jun 26 Aurora Erratic commented on Single Christian Lady Bristol "Screw As I Say, Not As I Screw" Palin is Pregnant Again.
I wish Bristol nothing but joy of this pregnancy.
I feel a little joy myself, that surely she will have to shut up about abstinence after this, or become a walking, talking sketch comedy.
Jun 19 Aurora Erratic commented on Brian Brown Suggests Terry and I Stole Our Son from His Biological Parents.
As Dan suggests, memory is a funny thing, and one of the things that can affect it is cognitive dissonance. When asked by a person whose family he would tear apart, Brian lacked the courage to answer the question directly. What his answer would have been is clear, but he could not say the words: Yes, I think your son should be taken from you. He lacked the courage of his convictions.
Because he chickened out, in his memory Terry has to be intimidating: irrational, hateful. Otherwise, he has to ask himself why he wouldn't answer the question, and the answer to THAT question might be: because he no longer feels confident that tearing this family apart would be the right thing to do. Which flies in the face of his deeply held beliefs, resulting in MORE questions.
Cognitive dissonance can be very uncomfortable. It can also be a learning moment, or a cowardly one. Brian went with Option B.
Jun 6 Aurora Erratic commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: What Should the Duggars Have Done?.
Milkshake - 9 and 11, and neither child being coerced - that's more like playing doctor. A fifteen year old and a five-year-old - that is abuse. Fourteen and fifteen year-old brains are not fully developed, adolescent impulse control is not all there and so on, so the adult Josh Duggar is not necessarily a pedophile; but it is not in any way normal for a 15-yr-old boy to want to fondle his five-year-old sister's genitals.

That Dr. Solution thing seems legit.
Jun 5 Aurora Erratic commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: The Offering.
LW, take a chill pill, as we used to say in the 90s. Wait til the "off-again" phase, and if you miss it, no big. Not wanting to miss out on sex is not a good reason to be a jerk.
May 25 Aurora Erratic commented on Comic.
Nothing against the comic, but Slog really ain't what it used to be. I used to come here for interesting takes on what's happening in the world. Now I wonder why I come here at all.
May 19 Aurora Erratic commented on SL Letter of the Day: Squirt Toys Incorporated.
Squicky, really? Are we back to the dropped can of ham? We know you aren't into chicks, Dan, no need to keep making the point.
May 17 Aurora Erratic commented on SL Letter of the Day: I Like Big Dicks and I Cannot Lie.
I'm with @12, PennyLady.
