@Counter Clockwise I definitely was! I thought the artists were turning 20 and I was like "Lorde isn't old enough, maybe CharliXCX is turning 20? How did they find 20 female musicians so young?"
@Kalorama_Kat Obviously, yes, Live Through This is the best. The other day for some reason I was talking to my husband " you know, that song where 'pee girl gets the belt'"? and then realized he wasn't a 12 year old girl when that came out and didn't have the whole thing memorized. I queued it up and was reminded also that she gets a blister from touching everything she sees which is so gross and amazing.
@likearollingpin Dan Savage (love him or hate him) frequently touts a doctor who's name I forget but her expertise is in vaginal pain. I would try to google it if you were still having issues (I would google it now but I'm at work!)
I've tried to use them but my period is just irregular enough (or rather, I guess my cycle isn't always 28 days or whatever and shifts around by a day or two) that all it does is make me very anxious because it makes me feel late whereas it's usually just a surprise and wasn't on my mind at all (even with the reliable PMS crying and premenstrual acne/chocolate cravings.)
@RNL Aha, I was just about the google how this works with dandruff as I have it and feel tethered to my H&S. Do you use dandruff shampoo and the baking soda or do you use regular shampoo?
@Carrie Shuck I was too shy to say it myself but yeah, the after hair does not look great. It looks drier and the color doesn't look natural (since it's not, as others have suggested due to the vinegar.)
@whut I agree, to some degree, that culture undervalues things that appeal to specifically to women but it's also true that most genre fiction gets less respect than "literary fiction"- be it science fiction, westerns, mysteries, etc. So I would say that unless she truly thinks what she writes is not formulaic and transcends the genre of chic lit (which isn't just books about women, but a pretty standard set of tropes) on literary merit, then sure, she should be upset. But formulaic genre fiction, as a rule, isn't exceptionally well written and only a few authors rise above their genre (I don't know anything about her books.)
@glamtart When Wendy Davis was elected, I was living in her district! I am from Dallas but was living in Fort Worth at the time (which I always thought of as lesser-than Dallas, for whatever reason) but getting to vote for Wendy Davis was pretty cool!
@Lorly I am not so hard on name-changers. Certainly, it has a lot of baggage and doesn't make logical sense. And I haven't changed mine although I am wishy washy about it and claim that I will some day if I feel like filling out the paper work. Most of us pick and choose which patriarchy-rooted things we can tolerate because most of us don't have the time or energy to fight everything.
@H.E. Ladypants YES about day-of coordinators!
