Yeah, it's a copy of that.

May 28 secretchord commented on Do I Sound Gay?.
I've always thought that women fall somewhere along the same scale as men do when it comes to speech style (how "girly" they talk, for lack of a better way to put it), although it seems to have less correlation with their actual sexual orientation. Female speakers who upturn the ends of all of their sentences and somehow feminize their pronunciation of consonants sound very similar to the "gay" male voice. But many women (not necessarily lesbian) have a more down-to-earth tone of voice. It's a personality thing more than an orientation thing.

I think 5 years is a lot when it covers the period of "still in highschool" to "finished college" - that's a huge difference in life experience. SON sounds like she's looking for an extremely casual hookup. But just because the 18-year old is a kinky male doesn't mean he couldn't be sensitive/romantic/vulnerable to delusions about how serious their "relationship" is. If SON pursues this and he gets hurt, what will be the backlash? This is foolishly risky.

It's obviously so ridiculous. Assault rifles are for killing people. No one needs one. What happened?
Guns for the purpose of protection against rabid wolves ....ok, . Oh, and against vandalism, and protection against random murder? By the way, you won't get randomly murdered (since most of us don't). Not with a gun. If you defend yourself with a gun, you are a terrorist, in a lot of ways. You support the deadly killing of anyone you see in front of you with no time for contemplation. Just, "I'm number one!! So you? Die!!"" (pow pow). I don't want to see you all kill yourselves, americans, please stop.

@13 & @17, why does that make you LESS worried? It should make you more worried. I live in Toronto (one of the biggest cities in North America, so of course there's a crime-rate- albeit much less than similar US cities), but, if cab-drivers and young women and grandmothers and homeowners felt they had to carry guns here, that's when I'd know there was something very, very wrong and I'd be very, very scared. It just doesn't have to be that way..

It's just the one thing that makes me furious about this column. It's about sex advice, and relationship advice, right? Not simply PRIMARY PARTNERSHIP advocation. I admire people who have a lovely primary relationship, whatever it's monogamous status or gender blend. But a lot of us are single. And we are not responsible for keeping couples' relationships healthy. They chose it. So they are responsible.
For godsakes, do I seriously have to tip-toe around anyone I meet and make sure I'm not crossing the boundaries of their relationship if they have one, as if it's a precious and fragile substance that might break if an "asshole" crosses an invisible line and renders the "devoted partner" helpless?
Give me a break.
The cheater is the cheater. They are cheating on SOMEONE. The piece on the side has so much less responsibility I don't remotely understand why they keep getting lectured in this column. A relationship is not a cult religion.

Yeah, but Dan has supported people doing the "tipping point" cheat in the past, in that, the relationship is failing and they might be part of the mechanism that causes a bad thing that should fall apart to finally actually fall apart.
I think, despite the bravado of her letter, that's what she thought she was doing. And she was really hurt when she found out that she wasn't, she was, in fact, invisible, to him, his girlfriend, and the world. And in addition, sloggers think she's a slut. Nice work guys!

Wow! And Fun!

So how many times in your life did you always have a perfect mechanism to measure things? You must have magic. The rest of us find things a little more confusing along the way.

Because she's in love with him, guys! Yeesh. Why are you all treating her like a harpy instead of a love-lorn young adult, which is what she is from what I can see in the letter. Prove to me she's a consummate bitch and I'll second your "off-with-her-head" attitude. But I think, in this case, Dan took a side (for entertainment) and lot of you jumped on that ship and you just sound cruel in your comments. Do all of you have harmonious, monogamous relationships to back up your judgement of everyone else?
Jan 12, 2013 secretchord commented on SL Letter of the Day: The Good Girl.
@22 "stupid bitch". Stop saying that.
Jan 12, 2013 secretchord commented on SL Letter of the Day: The Good Girl.
Wow, everyone's heaping shit on OOMOW. Have none of you ever been on the "less important" side of a relationship with a jackass? It hurts like hell. Give the girl some support, she's just trying to figure out the right thing to do, and doesn't need everybody heaping shit on her like she's garbage. She's not. She's confused about love and finding out a hard-core lesson right now. Give her support, not abuse.
