On But How Feminist Is Your Dry Cleaning?

It's only a legitimate issue if you have your shit together enough to have your clothes dry-cleaned which... I do not.

On A Letter to Future Me

@Elvisradar I, too, remembered some memories, spambot. Well said.

On A Thing You Should Probably Read If You Use the NuvaRing

@adriana @abigailnicole I hear just as many scary things about IUDs as I do about other BC methods! I think I want to move away from hormones entirely, and the copper IUDs scare me. :(

On A Thing You Should Probably Read If You Use the NuvaRing

Yiiiiiikes.

I've been using the Nuvaring for 2.5 years because of miserable/irregular periods, and the Pill didn't work for me (I'm horrible at taking a pill at the same time every day). After reading everyone's comments, I'm considering ditching hormonal birth control entirely, using condoms for birth control, and just putting up with miserable/unpredictable periods.

On Friday Open Thread

@zamboni I would be as direct as possible! @adorable-eggplant's advice is definitely the safest way to go, but I wouldn't want to bank on him magically knowing that you're hoping to glob he'll respond to the email.

Something to the effect of "I've really enjoyed playing [sport] with you this season. Would you maybe want to go on a date sometime?"

On Friday Open Thread

One of the commenters on this week's Ask a Queer Chick (re: LW4 and painful intercourse) prompted me to make an appointment with my gynecologist and as it turns out I probably have an ovarian cyst! The bad news is that I have to do a bunch of tests, but the good news is that this completely random hairpin post and comment prompted me to take care of a potential medical issue before it becomes a big problem.

On "It Was Like a Pile of Kleenex"

@klemay It's been really lovely! My regret is that I did not blog about it... so if you're up to the task, you totally should (and drop the link in the comments on an open thread or something)!

On "It Was Like a Pile of Kleenex"

This is why I'm only reading female authors for a year. :)

(And when my year is up in June, I might never go back to male authors)

On Befriending Your Best Friend's Girlfriend and Resisting the "One True Sex Act"

@hotdog The point of which could only be to derail the conversation from A Queer Chick's point.

On Befriending Your Best Friend's Girlfriend and Resisting the "One True Sex Act"

@hotdog OK fine, "It is, indeed, ridiculous that we as a society have not gotten past the idea of 'sex' as 'penis-in-vagina'". The sentiment is still the same.

I'm not sure why you're so worried about defending Society that you needed to point that out...
