@TheGenYgirl Of topic a bit, but.... how the hell do I stop blushing, Camille Paglia? I would dearly love to know.

Sorry, I don't think pointing out street harassment as part of patriarchal system counts as "politically correct swill." I also don't buy into the idea that having privilege makes one somehow immune to sexism. And I'm not sure what's *boring* about anti-sexist activism.
@hallelujah I was floating a river with my little sister once, and around one bend there was a naked dude on the riverbank just jacking it. Obviously he was some type of exhibitionist, and I wanted to ignore him, but my sis was there, and I got pissed. So I yelled at him that I was going to call the cops and that his mother would be so disappointed. He also got an earful from the college dudes floating behind us. Ugh ugh ugh ugh.

Please no Paglia. How can you take someone seriously who has said that she'd like to molest teenaged boys?

Once in college I had to sell plasma. Reason is not important.
Anyway, they put the needle in wrong. It worked OK during the part where they were taking blood out. But then, in the part where they're putting fluid back, it started to feel, um, Not Right.
I had to make a fair bit of fuss before they came over and helped me. It was closing time; they were cleaning the room. Meanwhile it felt like my arm was on fire.
Well, it turns out they were pumping stuff back into my arm... not into my bloodstream.
Ended up with dark purple bruising that went from my wrist to my shoulder from all the blood cells that basically pooled in my fat/skin/muscles.
And that is why I only sold body fluids that one time, kids.
@stroopwafel It is T&A. Boobs on top and butt on the bottom. Jane, WHY did you design a necklace to be a curvy torso?
@bonymaroni "Devoid of charm or humor" is the perfect way to put it. I mean, Emma and Bobby, did this...accomplish what you'd hoped?
This made me laugh so much. I think that if a woman had a similar face style, she'd be considered 'ugly'.
Although, I do think Benedict's voice is hot.
