I have a question for Dan:
How would you feel if Terry wanted to you strap on a prosthetic vagina and eat him out? Because while you are obviously GGG, you also appear to be pretty vagina-averse.
I had a very long ramble, but I deleted it. Bottom line: BPG has to talk about his kink. But dressing it up as a shiny, happy, "Gee honey, there's more to this kink than you thought!" conversation isn't going to make it all better.
I'm GGG, I think Eddie Izzard is smokin' hot, and wouldn't freak if my husband told me he was a cross dresser. Because cross-dressing does not equal sexual identity. (And yes, Tim Curry as Frank-n-Furter was hot. And as noted previously in this sentence, Eddie Izzard is also hot. That bears repetition. ;) )
But if he tacked onto that that he fantasized about sucking dick? Yes, there would be a worrisome, even to a pretty GGG woman. Because then you would have to always be wondering what the hell that means to your sex life and relationship, which is the best way to kill your sex life. Which leads to damaging to your relationship.
Maybe to a gay guy, this is an inconsequential kink. To a straight woman - even an open-minded one - it may not be.

commented on SL Letter of the Day: A Member of the Wedding
@24 - "Penelope" has come over from Europe for the wedding, and sounds like a very old friend of the Bridezilla. It sounds like the OP was just trying to be thoughtful and include her in a quasi-wedding related event as she didn't have any other plans at the moment. Hell, I crossed the country for an old friend's wedding a decade ago (a very small one where I was invited my friend's sister was not), and they invited me to just about everything to make sure I didn't feel like I was stranded in a place I didn't know very well until the event itself.
As for this letter? If I wanted to read about Bridezila bullshit, I could read Prudence, Amy or Carolyn. WTF, Dan?

If the GOP knew what was good for them, they would get down on their knees, beg until their legs were bloody stumps, and give Colin Powell whatever it is he wants to throw his hat in the ring. Which would include the ability for him to tell the leadership of the GOP to go take a flying fuck at a rolling doughnut.
This woman is an embarrassment. Not just to the GOP, but to American politics.

(The Commonwealth of) Virginia is the same. There's actually a term for it: NoVa vs. ROVA. That would be Northern Virginia vs. the Rest Of Virginia.
The amusing thing is the occasional sob story in the Washington Post, talking about how the people who live about 2 hours west or south of the city are having a harder time to find jobs...in NoVa. As in, they bitch about us, travel to the better paying jobs there (no bargain that, granted), but then we're elite or snobby scum who try to deny them taxes.
Except the biggest NoVa county - Fairfax - generally gets back about 12-14¢ of every $1 sent to Richmond. I'm not sure how many more taxes can be sent out, or how many more times they'll block NoVa from trying to generate their own transportation funds.

Oh hush. They come to my small town on a fairly regular (and miraculous) basis. They come early and practice for two days. Right over my normally dead quiet house. Freaks the dog out.
At least in Seattle, you probably have some place cool to go to avoid the noise. Not where I am...

And I've just added another place to my must-visit checklist when I can finally come and visit friends in Seattle. I think we could cut this into pieces and share, no problem :D
And @Last of the Time Lords? If you are a Brit as your moniker hints at (though yes, many American Doctor Who fans out there), then it's not that I don't agree with you. American portion sizes are insanely out of proportion - but so many people *don't* eat like this. It's just more fun to videotape all the fat people. And before there was Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution, there were Jamie's School Dinners and Jamie Oliver's Ministry of Food ;)

commented on Tim Gunn: Now a Butthole?
@22 - Oh, and I don't think he was saying all pantsuits are a mark of a woman who is gender-confused, either in her personal life or her clothing choices. He was just criticizing her clothes.
Since I'm guessing this was part of a Project Runway season launch (I don't watch the show, but it's hard to miss the PR for that right now), they were probably talking clothes. Which is what you do when you have Tim Gunn on your show pushing his show about clothes.
