commented on To Avoid Rape, "Try not to show fear."
Translation of @82: "Rapists! They just sorta happen, like hurricanes or earthquakes. Women, though, are people who choose to become victims of assault. These tips are just showing them how to make better choices."
commented on Hot Al-on-Al Action
I intially read this as "hot AI-on-AI action" -- AI as in artificial intelligence. Damn sans serif fonts.

commented on Colbert on Mourdock
It is clear that Stephen Colbert has cornered the market on rape jokes that are actually funny. Fellow dude comedians, take note!

commented on SL Letter of the Day: 50 Shades of Grey Syndrome
As a romance novel reader and author, let me jump on the train to Faketown, whence this letter clearly originated.
I'm not saying nobody's ever gotten a sexy idea from a romance (who hasn't?) but the story that romance novels turn middle-aged women into nymphomaiacs whose poor schlubby hubbies can't live up to their sexual demands is well-worn bullshit. The commenter above who mentioned Eat, Pray, Love got it right: these stories crop up every time a book with a primarily feminine audience sells a ton of copies. Shake your head and let it pass.

@15: I've seen the phrase "chocolate starfish" bandied about the interwebs. I think "puckered brown eye" is far superior.
