The academic project I'm working on involves surveys of students. I managed to convince the group to include an "other" box on the gender question.

I was circumcised at birth, and I'm reasonably happy. I mean everything works, but if I could go back in time and change the paperwork in the hospital, I probably would. I'm pretty sure that circumcision was opt-out, not opt-in for the state of Texas at the time, and I don't really blame my parents. It is really weird that we have taken this religious ritual from antiquity and turned it into a standard medical procedure.

Uh, as a straight, monogamous man, I think it is wholly possible to never ever cheat. I guess most would crack under this weird ultra-seduction (kinda rapey when you think about it) scenario, but that's a pretty ridiculous setup. #20 is right. You have free will. Exercise it. Just because you feel something, you don't have to act on it.

I don't mean this to sound negative toward the letter writer, but perhaps she could try Kegel exercises to increase pressure on his penis. It might help, though it probably won't.

@2, Or, you know, people might like to have sex with the persons they love. It's good for the soul (or whatever.) Turning celibacy into this thing on a pedestal takes the whole relationship aspect away and turns into something about only one person. If you were talking about masturbation, I could see it. Sex between or among multiple people contains more than that.

At any rate, may the lustiest team win, I guess.

@27: Sometimes, you get the whole story, depending on the feed. It also contains all of the blogs and webcomics I follow, so it's nice to see everything show up in the same place. Sorry, but it just has so much more functionality than Twitter. You can get more than 240 characters and more than one picture! Wow!

It just reinforces my view that Twitter is pretty fucking stupid. (I get my news primarily through an RSS feed these days. Headlines can be more than 240 characters, and accompanying text is normal.)

I assume a straight person unless otherwise stated or inferred for two reasons: 1) Most people are straight and 2) straight people don't tend to mention their sexuality mostly because of (1).

It popped up on DailyKos yesterday as well. I don't remember if it made front page, but the most prominent transgendered person on the site (rseven) had a recommended diary on the subject.
Jun 3, 2014 nanoboy commented on Are Writers at The Onion Reading My Email?.
Yeah, that's one thing I think when I hear about affairs: who has time for that? I mean, when I'm not at work, my wife knows where I am, and when I'm at work, I'm at work.
