Sex is dirty, shameful, and sinful. That's why you should save it as a gift exclusively for the one special person you'll be loving the most for the rest of your life. Because it's the greatest thing that two people who love each other can do. But don't talk about it, because it's dirty, shameful, and sinful.

@28, That's so gay.

In certain ways I'm sympathetic to anarchists, but I'm not the slightest bit interested in their critique of multifamily residential architecture.

Fuck their oppressively dismal utopian vision of "communal" kitchens and bathrooms, and "non-hierarchical" shared spaces that everyone assumes somebody else will clean. If enjoying some privacy makes me a tool of the capitalist system, then so be it.

Get an IUD. Now.

You're clearly incapable of handling the responsibility of being a good parent. The first step to being a good mother: choose your sperm donor wisely. You've failed, big time. You've also failed to keep your children in a stable environment and protect them from a drama-ridden home life.

Your babydaddy is an objectively awful person. A cad, a shit-heel, a scoundrel, a fuckup, a deadbeat, an asshole, a manipulator, probably a narcissist.

But you say you love him more than anything. More than your own children? If you actually love this scumbag more than you love your own children that means you are an objectively awful person just like him. Fix yourself before you do any more damage to your kids.
Jul 9 john t commented on Claiborne Richardson Wants Pictures of a Kid's Cock.
The state of Virginia has decided that teenagers are capable of having consensual sexual relationships — the law says it's permissible for 15-year-olds to have sex with 17-year-olds. But apparently it's a super serious crime for a 17-year-old to take a picture of his own dick, and therefore it is appropriate to severely punish him for it because he's too young to understand the consequences of his decisions. Got it. We must destroy the boy to save him.

It's perfectly legal in Virginia for the 15-year-old girlfriend to suck her 17-year-old boyfriend's cock, but it's illegal for him to (privately) snap a pic of his own cock with his own camera and (privately) share the photo with her? Why is it a crime for a teenager to make an image of his own body? Why is it a crime for him to share with her a photo of a part of his body that she is already intimately familiar with?

Nobody was exploited by the photo sharing. No harm was done. So, of course the perfectly sensible thing to do here is to have some cops take him down to the station so they can inject some boner drugs into the boy's cock and take a picture of it just to be extra doubleplus certain they're prosecuting the right boner.

They're threatening to non-consensually take a picture of his underage boner (which is a perfectly valid investigative procedure!) to prove that he consensually took and shared a picture of it (which is a crime punishable by 4 years in prison and a lifetime on the sex offender registry!). Because it's important to protect minors from sexual exploitation by adults.

If anyone in this situation should be punished, it ought to be the girl's mom for snooping on her daughter's cell phone.

You're part of the problem. Stop writing about stupid superhero movies.

Everything about this makes me feel so old. Brb, gonna go listen to some Merzbow to scour the entire concept of "normcore" away from my consciousness.
Jun 24 john t commented on What Is the MOST You've Paid for a Record?.
I just don't have the collector's impulse to spend a huge premium on "rare" music. I might spend $30 or so for an import CD of a recording by some obscure modern classical composer that I like and can only find at Amoeba in L.A., but that's my limit.

The highest price I've ever sold a record was $75 for Johnny Jewel's first solo album (I don't remember what name he was going by before he was in Glass Candy). Sold it to a Glass Candy completist who just couldn't live without it even though it was a kind of unlistenable double album of arty home-recorded drone rock.
Jun 23 john t commented on This Ball Game Bigger Than That Ball Game.
This raises the question, who are bigger drama queens — Broadway actors, or the soccer players who scream in agony and writhe on the ground like they're the murdered hero in a Puccini opera?
