This upsets me even in jest (not that it isn't good jest, I'm just feeling sensitive). I feel so tired of explaining feminism to people who think the Mens Rights movement is "just the other side of the argument", or that we're trying to get something other than equality. Ugh.

My ex abandoned his cat with me, and after a year when he came to visit her, she attacked him and then hid under the bed. It was sad, but at the same time like... Yeah. My cat now. Keep walkin'.
@sophia_h Oh god this is hilarious. I'm going to buy some yellow underpants and wear them while I re-read Watchmen next time I get my period.
@The Lady of Shalott In "These Happy Golden Years" Ma and the girls make a treat (for Fourth of July, I think) out of popcorn covered in molasses and pressed into balls. It sounds so delicious.
Also: too many ideas I have about virtue and politeness come from those books.
@fondue with cheddar Thanks for the update! I actually refreshed this page this morning thinking, "which size should I get? I wonder if the larger size worked out for a non-baby-having lady Fondue."
@par_parenthese BSG! BSG!
@iceberg flashback to my sixth grade English substitute teacher who swore he knew Jonathan Brandis and would bring him into class some day....I AM STILL WAITING.
@whateverlolawants I am so glad "Little-House-on-the-Prairie-addled mind" is A Thing and not just My Thing. Also, Nellie is *awful.*
And my first crush was late elementary school and it was on a boy who I set fires and dug giant holes in the dirt with. That's still pretty much the kind of "partner in crime" crushes I get.
