commented on Zika Virus Sexually Transmitted in Texas
Every time I hear "Zika", I think of some little Pokemon character. With a tiny little head.
Does anyone else ever find themselves thinking, late at night, that down in some home basement lab somewhere, a mad scientist is working on mosquito-borne versions of MRSA? HIV? Ebola? Gotta keep those nightmares fresh.

commented on Worst Forced Feminization Scene Ever
When I first read that book title, I thought it said "Summer Stock as a Feminized Cheer Girl." And I thought it would be a charming coming-of-age tale about a budding thespian learning to play, and then master, an unfamiliar role and learn about the power of theater.
Boy, was I wrong!
Okay though, seriously - does the author even speak English as a first language? "Cheer Girl"? It sounds like a bad translation from Japanese.

commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Licensed Massage Practitioner Takes License
@11 and @15 and anyone else who thinks there might be some gray area in this case. You're right; there is. That's why Dan - and I think everyone here - is recommending that she report the masseur to his boss and not to the police. Yes, he asked for consent. Yes, when she clearly indicated he should stop, he did. So no, it's not rape or even really close. But it is sketchy and unprofessional behavior for an LMP, and it's entirely an appropriate response to report it to his boss. Does that make sense?
Yeesh. Now quit it already.

Bowie was one of the few self-consciously "cool" musicians that I could still embrace, if not relate to, because... well, because he was so damn good. He earned it.

You know what? Dan has an annoying habit of giving good advice (almost) all the time. I think it's high time someone acted as the antidote to that.
LW: You should totally go for it. Get them both super drunk one evening, excuse yourself for a moment, and come back into the room naked, with a raging hard-on, and start passionately kissing and groping them both. Hilarity will ensue! It can't fail!

commented on Watch President Obama's Speech on Gun Control
@11 - hah! Sgt, Doom, you go girl. I, for one, am highly entertained by conspiracy theories. Keep 'em comin'.
BTW, I will concede that Obama is a very good domestic president. Foreign policy... I have some quibbles. But I do think he means well.
