I went to high school with a girl named Joanna Handee. And her parents didn't have the decency to give her the pronunciation that sounds like "Joe-Anna."
@likearollingpin My dad worked with a guy named Dick Hertz, and he was from a town called Holden.
Dick Hertz from Holden.
On "In many states, including Louisiana, police are permitted to use carrying condoms as evidence of prostitution"
These laws also have devastating effects on women of color, particularly trans women of color, who are not sex workers but who carry condoms like responsible sexually active human beings sometimes do. Bad news all around. :(
It's only a legitimate issue if you have your shit together enough to have your clothes dry-cleaned which... I do not.
@Elvisradar I, too, remembered some memories, spambot. Well said.
@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. :(
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.
@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?"
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.
@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)!
