commented on SL Letter of the Day: Have You Ever Heard of...?
People don't ask if you've ever heard of something because they think you're skanky, Dan; they ask because they know that huge numbers of people write to you with their sexual problems. If you've never gotten a letter about something before, then it's REALLY unusual.

Plus, straight people talk about THEIR romantic relationships all the time. Turn on any radio, and most of what you'll hear is men singing love songs about women or women singing them about men. Go to the movies, watch TV, even play video games, and you'll see straight relationships all over the place.
Talk to people, and they'll tell you about weddings, prom dates, baby showers, and divorces. Who's dating whom, who's marrying whom, who's suspected of cheating on whom -- most of what straight people talk about, most of the time, is heterosexual romantic relationships.
Lesbian, gay, and bisexual people talk about OUR romantic relationships because that's what people in general talk about.
commented on SL Letter of the Day: Mixed Signals
"Do you know what the funny thing is about mixed signals, OCC? In most instances mixed signals are actually one loud, clear, unmistakable signal: 'I'm a fucking mess! Run! Run! Run!' "
This is so very smart! Half the people I know need to see this. Seriously, Dan, you should sell tee shirts or something with this on it.

You STILL get questions about this? That's truly bizarre. This thing has "urban legend" written all over it.
It's amazing what some people will believe. But then, most people are educated to believe in an invisible sky friend, so I guess they're actually trained to believe in things that are wildly improbable and have no good evidence for them.
