5:58 PM yesterday Absurdist1968 commented on Americans May Not Be As Open To Mixed-Race Couples As They Think, UW Study Says.
Here's my thing: Ask a black woman (for instance, Jill Scott) how she feels seeing a black man with a white woman. The answer may be polite, but it won't be positive. The weirdness: my brother only dates white women, and both of his daughters are biracial. My nearest first cousins both married white people and also have biracial kids.

So I guess what I'm saying is that I'm kind of split.

Stephen Fry does not have anal sex. That's at least one celebrity gay man who's not about ass play.

@9:
Not if I have to keep regaining the same twenty pounds, no.

"I don't do colonial."

I say it a lot to white guys that have Mandingo fantasies. The conflict between consensual objectification and fetishistic tokenism doesn't get very far with me.

"Tendentiousness"?

No tea, no shade, but is Frank Rich getting paid by the letter or by the syllable?

Stranger things have happened. Me, I never have male therapists. That's a hard and fast rule. I'm gay. I know that not even most male therapists are anything but straight and professional ethics are something of a block (not to mention that I'm just not wreck-your-career attractive), but that's not the point. I need to not have even the remote possibility of invoking any kind of paternal situation. At all. That brings up a lot of ussyes that I simply don't have in therapy with women.

I remember being in my first Body Electric workshop and all the participants were asked to refrain from having contact with the leaders and all the other participants for one year. IT'S EVERYWHERE.

Now I'm done making it about me for no reason at all.
Feb 16 Absurdist1968 commented on New Head of Kinsey Institute: "I think human sexuality must be viewed in the context of relationships.".
Dan, just for the sake of record: prairie voles are animals, yeah. And Alfred Kinsey was a professor of entomology and zoology. He didn't start with people either. Don't pick that point to criticize Carter when there may well be several others.

Now that I think about it, I have a bag of Reese's pieces hidden somewhere...

Seriously, Dan is an advice columnist. People whose shit is working and working well have no cause to ask for advice unless there's new stuff they're considering that there's some uncertainty about.

My snarky advice: think before writing.
Jan 27 Absurdist1968 commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Another Sexless Marriage Question.
That thing about her being "dependent" is legit, but that's why there's "spousal support" clauses in divorce decrees. As the second letter puts plainly, both of you deserve a happy marriage, and right now LW1 ain't got one.
