And could you have imagined that the man living there would have been African-American?

I am overjoyed for your family, Dan, and for the countless others who will enjoy the same rights that people like me take for granted. This was a wonderful day.

Those "exceptions" you listed aren't really exceptions. In those cases, you're not denying them visitation *because you're embarrassed*. You're denying them visitation for different and much better reasons.

Maybe this is a stupid nitpick, but the point is that being embarrassed wouldn't be a good reason. Right?
Mar 24 Brett Alan commented on Alison Stevenson Won't Suck Your Dick.
I've always interpreted "oral comes standard" as "if you're not willing to do oral, you'd better make that clear early on." Saying "you never told me you weren't into watersports", say, well into a relationship (assuming you never asked) would be absurd, but saying "you never told me you wouldn't perform oral" is valid. Of course, people should be discussing such things anyway, but it doesn't always work that way.

Of course, that's just a simple form, and anyone who doesn't give oral should recognize that that's a big ask, and a sacrifice on your partner's part. But "comes standard" shouldn't mean "mandatory", because we're all free to make our own choices. We just need to be upfront about them, and especially upfront about the tough asks (both for what we want and what we won't do).

And FWIW, when I was single I would gladly have eaten a woman out regularly with nothing in "return". I like giving.

It appears that one of them DID decide to #fuckfirst, after a fashion...not before the ceremony, but before the reception. And without much concern for privacy.

Oct 1, 2014 Brett Alan commented on Why Do Conservatives Hate American History?.
Sorry to see this getting sidetracked into "is global warming real, or is every scientist on Earth not on an oil company payroll part of a massive conspiracy?"" Of course it's real, and anyone who says otherwise is a liar, an idiot, a dupe, or some combination of the three.

But what I wanted to say was this: Just try and imagine the shitstorm that would have developed if Barack Obama had ever said, in essence, "if Americans knew the truth about our history, they'd go join ISIS." That would be HUGE. But that's almost exactly what Ben Carson said, and I'll bet you dollars to donuts that even if Carson becomes a real player for the GOP nomination, this will never, ever, become front-page news. Because the "liberal media" is clearly biased AGAINST liberals.
Sep 3, 2014 Brett Alan commented on Those Leaked Celebrity Nudes: Have You Looked?.
I looked at the J-Law pics before I even knew anything about their origin, and I did look at one of the Mia Hamm pictures later. I don't feel bad about it because, once they're out there, one more person looking doesn't make much difference. But the person who stole them, should feel bad.

I'd like to know if when this Robin Abcarian person hears about someone dying in a car accident, they think "what, you didn't know by now that there are drunk drivers out there?"

And how many of us can't get sexy pictures from their partners because of fears that they'll be hacked and exposed? B^(
May 9, 2014 Brett Alan commented on SL Letter of the Day: Man of Mystery.
Ummmm...the answer is RIGHT THERE. She says he told him that he likes to "have control in the bedroom:" Well, it seems he's getting exactly what he wants--having control of her in every way possible.

So unless HLITL likes being the object of this manipulation--and it sure doesn't sound like she does--then, yeah, DTMFA, as soon and as definitively as possible. (And if she DID like it, I'd say she needs to talk to him about boundaries and such right away; if he wanted to find someone to manipulate like that, he should have been more clear about it.)

@15--how about Arkansas Rep. Jon Hubbard?

(Please don't say "that's just one" after saying "Name one...just one."
Apr 24, 2014 Brett Alan commented on Hero Rancher: Blacks Better Off Under Slavery.
You have to love the lack of self-awareness. Blacks have no freedom because they get government subsidies! They were better off under slavery, because they had to WORK for what they had! Now, why won't the government let me use their grazing land for free?

Yeesh.
