On Everything Good For You Is Probably Bad For You

I was reading this in the Guardian last week! I don't disagree with most of what he says, but in the comments there a lot of people were mentioning that he gets a lot of payoffs from big pharma, so ymmv.

On The BRCA Gene, Our Mother, And Our Insurance Plans: A Chat Between Sisters

You could get hit by a bus tomorrow.

Seriously, my mum died of a 1 in 100000 non-genetic condition. All her brothers and sisters have a genetic heart condition and she had spent years stubbornly refusing to get tested.

The last conversation I ever had with her was explaining during the course of all her other tests, they'd done the one for her heart and it had come back fine. She was unable to speak, due to the ventilator, but she was DELIGHTED. In the end, that and her brain were all that worked.

On Ask a Clueless Lady

@Sea Ermine Hell, I'd want to know if you had a COLD. I'd probably still kiss you if you did, but I'd like to know first.

On Ask a Clueless Lady

LW #2, you probably have a slightly back-tilted vagina. It's not a big deal! I have one too and it just means that whenever I attempt sex in a spooning position my body just goes NOPE WE DON'T BEND THAT WAY.

LW #3 Don't hide your badassedness! Besides, covering that up will probably hurt like fuck and maybe scar, too.

LW #4 We DON'T all have it, but apparently it's not transferable unless you're having tingling/full on outbreak so you probably shouldn't worry when that's not happening.

@blueblazes My mother died this week. You have just described my father at the age of 62. THIS IS FUN.

On Loneliness, Mistakes, and the Inner Questionnaire

My ex admitted to visiting prostitutes. It's not what broke us up, but I definitely never looked at him the same way again.
