Nov 18 Mike Friedman commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Help! I'm Being Sext-Shamed By My Asexual Ex!.
Dan is right, LW.....why are you living with someone (whether you're officially "together" or not) who makes you miserable and slut shames you for something harmless? It's none of her business. Period. End of discussion.

Move out, get your meds checked (maybe if you're not constantly around someone who makes you miserable you'll feel better on the depression front) and get yourself laid. You deserve it.

"Learn some manners?"

So we have to be nice to people who tolerate racism and misogyny and antisemitism and homophobia? So we don't hurt their fee fees?

Do the right thing and dump your poor fiance before you snare him into a life of misery. What a fucking drama queen.

Dear, please get some help. Dan's right. Get thee to a therapist!
Oct 22 Mike Friedman commented on Why Do So Many ST3 Critics Want Buses When Trains Would Be Better and Cheaper?.
What you all should really be asking yourself is why you have two separate agencies running buses and trains? Just look at the Bay Area where the balkanization of public transportation leads to things like a train pulling up just as another one is pulling away. When questioned, the agencies tell you "not my problem," as if wanting to transfer from a light rail to a commuter train was some crazy stunt, instead of me trying to go home.

Buses and rail should be managed TOGETHER. With the same sources of funding and integration. It's not rocket science. Really, it's not.
Oct 10 Mike Friedman commented on SL Letter of the Day: Thanks For the "Cure," Mom..
I'm gonna pile on and say Dan is absolutely right. Silence on this subject unless she brings it up. Then a very cold, brief email.
Oct 4 Mike Friedman commented on Oh, Come On, Stop Complaining About Pumpkin-Flavored Everything—Pumpkins Are Delicious.
Pumpkins are delicious and not just as dessert.

The problem is the "pumpkin spice" anything just tastes like shit and has nothing to do with the actual plant.
Sep 20 Mike Friedman commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Daddy Issues.
Honey, please don't make dating an older man sound like a terrible affliction. Just date people you want to date, that you are attracted to and don't worry about what other people think. It's pointless. I'm 52. Trust me on this one. I've been out of the closet for 36 years.

I've fairly recently discovered the power of the word "Daddy." It's amazing and I love it and so do the younger men I play with.

Finally, maybe it's time to move out of the small town you grew up in and move to a big city. More Daddies to choose from.

I was absolutely sure this girl was fucking a dog. I'm a sick puppy.

Progresso's canned soups aren't half bad.

If you're trying to save money though, make your own soup. It's the easiest thing in the world, and you can freeze it. But some inexpensive Glad brand plastic containers and freeze lunch sized portions. Then you know exactly what went into it.
Jul 25 Mike Friedman commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: What Would You Do About My Awful Mum?.
I'm with #2. Anyone who brings up this much anxiety needs to be told why they are not invited. Mother or not. Don't feel guilt about this. It's pointless. If Mother won't get the help that she needs and she's driving wedges in the various couples in the family, why does anyone put up with this? Savage says all the time (mostly to gay folks)..."the only leverage you have over your parents is your presence in their lives." If their presence in your life is this poisonous, then don't let her be present in your life. Period. End of discussion. And tell her why.
