commented on Scared of Guns? Buy More Guns!
People also get scared of gun regulations happening following high profile incidents, and stock up while they think they still can.

Red Dwarf, Season 6 episode 7. If I can bring in a WW2 tank, then I'll be all over this!
commented on The Story Behind California's Law Prohibiting Revenge Porn
The fact having naked pictures of yourself passed around the internet can get you fired from a teaching position or loose your kids is fucked up. Even more so that a photoshopped hack job can do the same. That comes from the same paternal mentality that motivates people like Hunter Moore and got him the large following that he had.
I have naked pictures of me floating around the internet, but that was by my choice and I am privileged to be in a position where it won't cost me my job or family. A large part of that is because I am male. That's also fucked up.
commented on SL Letter of the Day: The Morality of a Dungeon
@2: an expensive kitchen you don't cook in is a status item. I can't see showing off a dungeon to family and non-kinky friends for that purpose. Come to think of it, if my dungeon was being used to elevate my status, that means my friends would be using it!

"..and that money is taken out of her check when the register is under at the end of her shifts."
That's standard procedure when working a till. If the till doesn't balance, it's because you made a mistake with it. Every fast food job I've ever had required us to pay up at the end of our shift if there was a shortage, and we couldn't go home until the till was counted.
Of course, if instead you made a mistake the other way and didn't give the customer enough change, the employee certainly did not get the overage.
Both points of that policy is to make it more difficult for the worker to steal. Even if the mistake is honest, the employee is directly handling cash belonging to the company, and they are accountable for it.
commented on Just Going to Toss This One Up...
I'm willing to bet what @3 says (I would have said it but he got here first).
The strictest interpretation of the DSM is a condition causing a disorder. The strictest clinical definition of being sexually functional is penetrative sex resulting in the outie bit's ejaculation (likely based on what is needed for pregnancy if the two are capable). The partner with the innie bit doesn't need to be aroused for this to happen.
It's really just a semantic argument. If you sensibly expand your idea of what is sexually functional, like enjoyment, satisfaction, erotic triggers, etc, then it becomes a lot less gender specific.
I think the question can offer insight into thinking about the difference for the mechanics of sex to work at all vs. sex being healthy and happy, not to mention psychiatry's shamefully Victorian-ish history on the subject.
I think fetishes are part of human sexuality. If you dig below cultural conditioning, I don't think men and women work very differently about it, if at all.
commented on Chipotle and Fiona Apple Terrorize Nation's Children
@3 I noticed that too (and Chipotle Grill serves meat). Of course, both animal and vegetables can be farmed sustainably or not. One could live off an entire vegetarian diet of Monsanto products.
The game and its premise seem similar to Rupture Farms in Odd world.
