Jan 13 Ophian commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: A Germaphobe Couldn't Be Into Piss, Right?.
Huh. I really would have thought that--if the details of the memos were to be substantiated--treason would carry more weight than a benign kink.

But I guess pee jokes are more entertaining.

+1 @28.

I think most of y'all are distracted by the pee thing. Forget the kink, if the real meat of these memos is verified [and some of that seems as simple as checking travel documents] it looks like our president elect hasn't been the accidental beneficiary of Russian shenanigans, his campaign has been working with the Kremlin.

I am simultaneously horrified, and hopeful. We might not have to last through four years of Trump.

venomlash @1, I know, right? Some people just don't get that it's an Italian thing.
Jun 22, 2016 Ophian commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Target Engaged.
But if he wants to keep you, he'll have to propose to you. (Under duress, CAC, so don't expect a flashmob.) If he doesn't want to propose to you, he loses you.

Dan Savage @45, I know you've advocated that women can be the proposer. That is why I cannot fathom why you gave the advice you did. She can propose an engagement. He can accept or decline. She can then decide if that is a deal-breaker.

But to advise that she insist on a situation wherein he proposes "under duress" is ludicrous and sexist. Unless you meant that he should propose, she should accept, and he should secretly void the engagement in his head to placate her...which is just bad advice.

+1 chi_type @13. You're feelin' it.

I haven't read the comments yet, but I call Bullshit on this sexist bullshit. The advice is that she sit down with her BF and require that he propose to her. What?

I thought an engagement proposal was when someone asked someone else if they wanted to get married [some time in the future]. In this case, she wants to see if he is willing to entertain the idea of getting married.

She should propose to him. He should accept or decline as is his prerogative, and Dan Savage should apologize for being a sexist, heteronormative troglodite.

Could have been a make or break moment for Sanders. I guess all we get to do now is endure another 5 months of this useless crap, and hope that we get the first female US president.

she @12, I thought we were supposed to have made a little progress in the intervening three decades.

Frankly I think we should all go out and find these anti-trans bigots, shake their hands, and thank them for all of the help they have been giving us to forward trans rights!

Sandiai @4, A former housemate of mine here in Texas--a post-GRS transwoman, who doesn't pass so much--had her legal gender changed. Her ID says female, so she would be able to legally use the women's room...but would still be subject to harassment all the same.
