In the meanwhile, in Columbus, OH, a teacher who taught for 19 years at a Catholic high school - Bishop Watterson - was fired when her partner was listed in her mother's obituary. So, she lost her mom, and then lost her job because of an anonymous complaint from a parent who saw the obituary. They kicked her when she was already down. Nice guys, huh? It is against the law in Columbus to fire people based on sexual orientation, so she is suing.

We are all crazy. Whether or not we are considered sane by society is only a reflection of how functional we are, in spite of our neuroses.

The accidental dad is another case that exemplifies how it would be beneficial to all of humankind if men had to make a conscious decision about becoming a father. Vasectomies, and reversals of said vasectomies, with sperm banks as a back-up should be the birth control of choice for men.

I tend to think morality arises from compassion.

That Bill Donohue thinks the worst insult to toss at you is to call you a woman indicates that he is a misogynist.…

Dan, are there any gay bars in Seattle that feature male dancers that get down to their undies/thongs? That's how they get around those pesky liquor and nudity laws in Ohio. Another option would be to have a private party and hire a private dancer. Or would that be a privates dancer?
Feb 20, 2013 Barbara commented on SL Letter of the Day: Importing a Unicorn.
If LW wants to experience being the 3rd in a MFF 3-some, it seems like she could find a lot of local action. Call me cynical and jaded, but the letter raises some danger flags to me. Boyfriend wants a 3-some, flight, etc. IN EXCHANGE for hopping into bed. There's no one in LA for them to hook up with? How well does she know this friend, who is ten years older? Where/how did they meet?

There's an article in my local paper about an 11 year old who committed suicide (…). In the comments, someone is suggesting folks look up the It Gets Better project.
Jan 28, 2013 Barbara commented on What Will You Wear When You Die?.
Some glass artists will make objects that incorporate cremains. So you can wear your ancestors (or other loved one who has died). You can also get cremains incorporated into a tattoo, if you live in the right place, and/or find the right tattooist.

Who is to say that their mental pain was not extreme, and that it was not so very different than physical pain? They likely would have found other means to end their lives if left to do it on their own. When an extremely depressed person commits suicide, they have succumbed to their illness.
