On "A Stripper’s Guide to the Modern American Boomtown"

@iceberg I had a conversation about strippers the other day, and the woman I am dating had an interesting perspective. It was along these lines: our culture certainly objectifies women as sex objects, it's blatant and fucked up, but there's a market for it. Men and women are willing to pay a lot of money just to look at (and not touch) naked bodies, it's kind-of stupid and silly (I personally don't get enough enjoyment from that to justify the money spent). Anyway the stripper is not the one being shamed, the patron of the strip club is the pathetic one. Stripping is not stupid, it's smart to capitalize on something so base and simple--especially if we get past the hangups of nudity.

On Interview with a Person Who Used to Be Paralyzed

Fascinating. Did you purposefully build the suspense and mystery by delaying the disclosure of the correct diagnosis? Because it worked. I especially like, "When I first started walking normally I felt like I was flying around everywhere." Makes me feel lucky for my health instead of guilty for drinking too much and lazy for not working out enough.

On What Abortions Should Be Like: Melon, Maya Angelou, Swan Boats and Nothing Louder Than a Whisper

@iceberg Uh, Duh. I like the "mama" suffix you added to your username. Just letting everyone know, a mother knows best, even when that mom is a mountain of frozen water.
