There really are people who think this is an accurate representation of kink. I have encountered them. I have been judged by them. They have asked me why my husband is so damaged that he would dominate me, because Christian is damaged and that's why he has to be dominant. They have asked me why I would stay with… » 7/24/14 11:14pm Thursday 11:14pm

The people who hide behind ironic enjoyment are so insufferable. I used to really enjoy screwing with a super-hipster friend-of-a-friend. I don't think he likes me anymore, but I don't particularly care because he's a pretentious douche anyway. Here's a classic example: » 7/22/14 3:41pm Tuesday 3:41pm

I'm split here. I'm glad he dropped the suit because he got what was important for him and wasn't going to get anything else that mattered to him.

This hits home so hard. In second grade, my mom told me my favorite uncle had repeatedly abused her when she was a girl. It shattered my view of him entirely, but she said nothing about our family relationship was going to change, so I didn't really know what to do. She decided never to confront him about it, and he… » 7/20/14 10:33pm Sunday 10:33pm

My mom and I moved in with my grandparents when I was five, so from that point on I was involved in preparing nearly every meal the family ate until we moved out six… » 7/20/14 3:06pm Sunday 3:06pm

People get weirded out by PICCs and chest ports. I got so many questions when I had mine. Luckily I'm generally an extremely patient, open person, so I made it my mission to educate as many people as I possibly could. I'd show them the tubes, explain why I had them and how they worked, talk about the benefits and… » 7/20/14 2:10pm Sunday 2:10pm

It's really disgusting how pervasive these ideas/attitudes are. #10 is so pervasive that, when I was a single teen mom, my boyfriend's family (not the father) told him to "keep away from that gold digger, she just wants a daddy to support the kid". Never mind the fact that my insanely supportive family had far more… » 7/18/14 7:40pm 7/18/14 7:40pm
