How is line drying even a viable option here? It's raining or misting so often. (This is an actual inquiry, not trolling.)

It's always sad to hear when an author whose work you liked is a dick. Diana Gabaldon, Orson Scott Card, Terry Deary...

I wanted to add to their Share count but feel like they'll check comments for "ironic" shares and not count those votes.
Jun 29, 2012 Arkham commented on Are You a Queer Women Who Dates "Women and Trans Men"?.
The author does make an interesting point but the way they frame it gives it much less impact than the point otherwise deserves. How about acknowledging the right of women who "only date women and trans men" to date whoever they're attracted to but then going on to make a larger point about the way this seems to lump trans men into their birth gender rather than their transitioned gender. But yeah, speculating that it's due to sexual trauma seems like an odd guess. Maybe she's just attracted to people with more feminine features?

Did anyone else read the article and think the mom sounds a little... off?

I found the name of her lawyer online so I'm contacting him to see what we can do.

That is so fucked up. There must be a way for people to contact her family and contribute.

Jesus Christ, #11.

This will only ruin his daughter's whole life if she lets it and there is no need for that at all.

And really, lying about an affair that isn't hurting anyone (until its inevitable discovery) is worse than trying to provoke people to assassinate the President or sending us into a war that costs tens of thousands of lives?
Apr 13, 2011 Arkham commented on SL Letter of the Day: Have At It, Gang.
Movies, songs, and tv shows really celebrate people catching/punishing/getting revenge on cheaters so I don't think there's any way you can make her see her actions as wrong. You can punish her and make her feel like a martyr or you can try to make her consider other aspects of the situation and all the factors she didn't know and maybe make her think twice in the future.

What your daughter did had hurtful, cruel consequences and it might be wise to emphasize to her, although I don't know how effective any argument will be coming from you since your credibility with her has been severely damaged, but somebody should talk to her about consequences, as in, how must that woman's children feel seeing the pictures and would she want to be ambushed by pictures like that of her parents, and that while she was right that this was an affair and you were cheating on her mom, that's not an assumption she should automatically make. What if it had been a consensual affair and your wife and the woman's husband knew about it and no one was doing anything wrong? Then it would have been cruel and uncalled for for her to send the pictures to that woman's friends, kids, and folks. Maybe it would have been better to talk to her mother before taking any actions, especially since the harm was being done to her mother, so it was her mother's place, and not hers, to punish the offenders.

Not that I'm saying you or the woman deserved to be punished. I'm not touching that. But I don't think you'll make any impact if you try to convince your daughter that you and the woman are wronged parties in this situation.
