I also hate to post something off-topic, but I have to say "HALLELUJAH" to #5. Dan, that was absolutely the cheesiest.

There is no "radical Buddhist theology" that could explain or condone this behavior, just a bunch of radical extremists hiding behind the name of a well-known religion in order to try to appropriate an imprimatur of justification. It's been done before, and it's always a load of crap.

I didn't understand the flak then, and I don't now. I'm the honest-to-a-fault type, but it feels like this is only a very slight bending of reality, with a final goal of making everyone more honest in the long run. I applaud this as both a creative and well-meaning solution.

I'm still trying to wrap my head around this not being satire, but all signs point to it being real.

Dan, Dan, Dan. This is so unlike you of the pristine spelling and grammar! To wit:

- The plural of Mistress is Mistresses, not Mistress's.

- "Afterwords"? You were looking for "afterwards". (Afterwards can be used instead of afterward as long as it's being used as an adverb, and relating to time, both of which were true in your sentence.)

I guess we all have brain fart days. The content was top-notch though!
Jan 27, 2012 Boything's Girl commented on If You Know Your Gay Kid Is Being Brutally Bullied At His School....
Thanks again, Dan, for shining light onto these poor kids who need to not be forgotten and jolt us into changes. However, why was your advice just addressed to "straight parents"? While it's true that gay parents can often empathize more directly with what it's like to be bullied, I've seen a couple of examples of gay parents who believe that in the intervening 30 years, things have gotten much "better" for gay youth, and may perhaps be a little blasse. So your words are a spot-on reminder for ALL parents of LGBT (or perceived as such) kids!

And man oh man, I don't think it's gotten easier to be a kid in this day and age - not gay, straight, black, white, male, female, or otherwise. I'm 45 and I would NOT want to go through childhood again, not back in the 70s and 80s when I did it the first time, and sure as HELL not now.
Jan 27, 2012 Boything's Girl commented on Overheard in Hungarian Pastry Shop on Amsterdam Avenue.
Ahem. Later on in this very column, you gave the following advice:

"Finally, if you've been with this guy since you were 16, and he's the only person you've ever had sex with, I'd suggest you screw around behind his back a little before you do anything stupid (like, oh, marrying this guy). Your boyfriend might be the problem, but without something to compare him too, you'll never know, will you?"

Encouraging CPOSsiness? I'm glad you're over that.
