"I think when you boil it down, there are only two basic things an advice columnist ever tells anyone. The first is 'take responsibility for your own shit,' and the second is, 'understand that the only shit you can take responsibility for is your own.'"
Wow. That is so, so perfectly succinct.
It's really cool to follow the links back to the older yogurts and see the increase in yogurt skill. Seriously, these just keep getting better and better.
@Megano! Conjugal visits are only for spouses and only exist in some states. It's kind of like how minors can't consent to sex - the power dynamic is so skewed. I don't know that same sex guards would really solve that problem.
@Aeroplane I don't know, for me that was the only part that actually made sense?
I had it open in another tab! I feel so hip and with it.
@TARDIStime I think it depends on whether the coconut is bigger on the inside?
Sorry, I couldn't not... Sorry.
@Mira There's a word for that and it doesn't start with a V....
@nerdshares Right? "It doesn't mean as much if you couldn't make a baby doing it" is an attitude that makes me a little side-eyey. And maybe why some of the commentariat is getting so irked about her self-defining as a virgin.
@Rock and Roll Ken Doll I can't either, and it's really disappointing. I have a mortgage and a husband and a dog and a big girl job and it's going to have to stay a fun daydream :(
@Faintly Macabre please do it so I can live vicariously through you! The fact that you've lived abroad before probably would speak well to your ability to adjust. And then blog about it so I can live vicariously through you?
I... wow. I'm so curious about what Scarlet thinks about homosexuality, gender, feminism... I feel like this whole "women release bonding hormones" thing (with the implication that men don't) as well as her definition of sex means there's a whole lot of unexamined gender roles at play. Except clearly she's spent some time thinking about this? I. I'm just kind of flummoxed.
