commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Marathon Man & Woman
@12 -- I also got pregnant during my period. There is no safe time to have completely unprotected sex if you definitely don't want a baby.
Using EC as a primary method of birth control is NOT recommended by doctors or by the manufacturers. Dan kinda shit the bed here by not mentioning that. Speaking of shitting the bed, violent nausea and diarrhea are both possible side effects of EC. That's one way to spoil your sexy weekend. Suck it up and use safe birth control or be better organized next time.

commented on Hillary Clinton Is Everything We Have Been Taught Women Should Not Be
HRC's weaknesses as a candidate definitely extend beyond the email scandal, but the widespread attitude that she is "as bad as Trump" or that they're "both terrible" -- the implication being that they're *equally* terrible -- is completely irrational and rooted in misogyny.

commented on Hugo House Makes a Good Move—To First Hill, Temporarily
The paragraph on Hugo himself seems unnecessarily hostile. He "never set foot" in the house? He died several years before it was founded. And how is it relevant that some people in Montana didn't like one of his poems?

88 is right on one point: declining an invitation like this really amounts to shirking one of your duties as a member of the wedding party. Others involved will have to pick up the slack -- not just financially, but socially. They'll be down a member of the team that's supposed to be showing the bride a good time.
For the record, my husband and I had a coed bachelor/ette at a regular strip club (naked ladies) followed by partying at a friend's house. I would not have pressured anyone to attend, but I probably would have been privately bummed out if any of our closest friends had bowed out citing "discomfort". Luckily, our friends are mostly laid back good sports who knew we'd do the same for them. In the years since, we have done the same for many of them, and without complaint.
