Just wanna say that the SF pinup last Sunday was rad as hell and I had a really good time meeting all youse who came! The food truck park was awesome, even if it was hard to hold a conversation. Thanks to everybody for making it so much fun!
I... I hate to use the word "sociopath," but the woman seems very robotic in this piece. Maybe she's a very warm person in real life, with her friends/husband, but she comes off in this piece very "beep boop hate kids blurp beep," as if no moment, not one single solitary minute of either of her children's lives, made her happy or proud.
I think it's completely fair and right to include "some women just don't want children and that's okay" in the debate, and I feel sorry that 30+ years ago it wasn't really an option welcomed warmly in society, but... I don't know, I pity those kids. She comes off as the kind of mum that gets a puppy because her kids really want one, and never emotionally connects with it. Except, these aren't puppies, they're children.
@Nicole Cliffe I can't imagine why you weren't romantically involved with him.
@Kristen it's not?
@Mira The idea of eating a bleu-cheese smothered steak and then following it up with some vigorous anal sex is just...Scarlet, you're a very strong woman.
I just wanted to pipe up (after not-posting several comments) that several commenters have defined exactly what I feel: both "you're not a virgin, honey, and to say so kinda devalues the sex of other people" and simultaneously feeling bad about labeling someone else's sexual experience. This isn't a simple issue. Discussion is healthy.
And Scarlet, regardless of whether or not you are a virgin (or care about it in terms of identity, or should), you're awesome.
@I'm Right on Top of that, Rose completely I guess. I think of "virginity" as more of a sliding scale of experience rather than an abrupt change. Otherwise there are a lot of gay virgins out there.
Alternately: many gay men are virgins.
I guess this interview just proves that virginity is subjective.
