Sep 13 Prettybetsy commented on City Council Will Consider New Rules to Cap Move-In Fees.
With all respect for Kshama Sawant, at some point all this effort to tinker with the rules would be better spent on getting more actual housing built.
Sep 7 Prettybetsy commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: The End of the Kinky Affair.
Option 3/5 (the Madonna/Whore) is closest to the truth, but Dan is putting the cart of kink before the horse of misogyny. LW's husband hates women and likes to slap them around and choke them, only he can't treat The Mother of His Child like shit so he masks his lack of interest and counts the (hours? days?) until he can be with someone he despises again. Sometimes it is just that simple. Kink-positive therapist, my ass. Run, LW. Run away.

@6 That too. For me there's a middle group, people I only interact with on Facebook, that I haven't seen in years and may never see again, but like seeing on FB. I care just enough to say something on Facebook, maybe only on major milestones, even if that's as far as it goes.

Good work, Dan. Most cities around the country could stand to be upzoned.

*shudder* This is why I don't wish people happy birthday on Facebook unless I've interacted with them, or at least heard news, in the past year.

As for third parties, don't Nader yourselves. I want Ranked Choice Voting as much as anyone so we can break the two-party deadlock that makes us choose the least right-wing of the candidates instead of somebody actually good. Until we get that, a third-party vote is just pissing into the wind.

@30 gets it:

"fuck the Democratic primary electorate for saddling us with this shitstorm of an election"

Exactly this. I will probably hold my nose and vote Hillary if she doesn't tack much farther to the right (my state is blue-violet at worst so I don't have much to worry about), but I've lost a lot of respect for my friends who claim to stand for all the right things but couldn't bring themselves to vote for Bernie when he was polling better than Hillary for the general. For once we had a chance to get it more than 95% right, and they blew it.

Being a piece of shit isn't illegal (otherwise we wouldn't need sewer systems), but the photographer is still a piece of shit.
May 17 Prettybetsy commented on Memo to Women Who Don't Masturbate: You're Doing It Wrong.
Trust the sex-positive movement to turn masturbation into a chore, with schedules and things to buy so you can do it right. I'll decide when and how to flick my bean and you decide on yours, kay?
