Yeah, I know a lot of fellow fat chicks don't want to be "fetishized", per se, but... I love the idea of being with somebody who is not just tolerating my body type, but actually really into it. Don't we all want that?

@12 and @14: I agree with both of you. The female characters are poorly written, especially Skylar, AND the reaction to her growing complexity is misogynist. It's a twofer. And I hope it's not condescending to say how much I appreciate it when men notice these things; thanks, for the post Paul!

Lots of guys have issues the first time. I always chalk it up to nerves and look forward to the second time, which always goes fine. More second dates?

I'm a medical student with a master's degree (paid for entirely with loans, some private). All I have to say is: CRY.

No, one more thing. I'm going into underserved primary care, and will be struggling to pay off my loans for a very long time. Many of my classmates will choose more lucrative specialties, even if their hearts are in primary care, because they are terrified by their debt. Just sayin'.

I don't know how you keep having these kinds of conversations. I really don't. This level of stupid is so exhausting.

Thank you.
Aug 1, 2013 Violet_DaGrinder commented on The Worst Jobs We’ve Ever Had.
Animal control: reaching into a trough of liquid dog shit to clear a drain, which was clogged with a dead puppy. And then there were the times when the walk-in Death Cooler didn't work. You think barrels of dead cats and dogs couldn't be worse, and then they get HOT... not to mention the normal shit-and-euthanasia aspects of the job. And the dumbshit guys who fight with you about neutering their escaped pitbulls. The inevitable, generalized misanthropy creeping into your soul. Etc.

I used to be a King County Animal Control Officer, and to echo what the person from SAS: if you ever find an animal whose owner may be looking for it, please take it to the shelter! That is its best chance of being found -- the owner may not look in your neighborhood or at internet resources that are obvious to you -- and it is very unlikely that the critter will end up being euthanized. The local shelters do NOT euthanize adoptable animals, and the people there are in a better position to assess that than you are. You can also ask for the animal to be adopted out to you, the finder, ifit isn't claimed.

Mudede, I feel like it's only right to admit how much you've grown on me.
