commented on This Is What Parental Rejection Does to Gay Kids
Austin, watching your two videos, I see a sweet, gentle, sensitive boy with so much strength. The little boy you describe yourself to be - playing with Barbies and girls - sounds just like me. While I didn't get beaten, ever, for it, I did get the message that I was wrong and damaged. I just never believed them. And I don't think you believe those messages either. I hope you find the love you missed as a child. You seem to have a lot of compassion and the capacity to give lots of love, so I see lots of love coming back to you. That's what I hope for you.

I'm sorry, what's your point? Do/n't use baby oil as lube? Advice columnists don't know all the answers? iPhones are great? Gaze at my navel with me?

Build a Savage Fundamentals section for newcomers containing these gems that I'm OVER as a long-time listener/reader:
Oral sex's last name is 'sex'
All men watch porn
Ease up on the death grip
Present your kink as a fun little surprise
Focus on getting your future self laid, inexperienced teenager

@25 Suzy says: A lot of people are really bad at eating less and exercising more, too. Naturally, even! How many times do we have to hear this pathetic argument that men are simply bad at monogamy, and so we'll just have to live with that? It's also a very demeaning argument for the men who aren't bad at it.
Great analogy! Let's go with it: The more restrictive the eating/exercise routine, the less sustainable. How many weeks would you say you've been able to consistently maintain a daily workout routine plus a no sugar/flour/fats diet before you find yourself secretly shoveling in ice cream straight from the carton while standing over the sink? A plan for healthy living that opens up the possibility of enjoying some of your favorite foods in moderation is going to get better long term results.
Why is this idea so threatening to people?
