Each time I hear of these tales of what I assume is the life of the rural lesbian, I'm reminded how fortunate we've been and again how great it is to be a NYer. We're as mixed as mixed could be, now raising our grands, whom we've legally adopted and who think we're their moms. (We'll deal with the...
Not the Mr. Shortarms part, the Criss part.  But honestly, most of the time I just find this show annoying.
...of the actions of people who are, individually and collectively, complete bat shit crazy.  There is no logic in any of these behaviors.  People accept such dogma because it justifies their own sick motivations.  I killed my daughters because they pissed me off?  Really?...
I proposed that both Bachmann and Cain were clay pigeons.  The were put into the race to make Gingrich look good.  Amazing how many people are falling for it.
I would respond to that by saying we don't live in a fairy tale world where people don't justify acting on their own wants as being better for the kids. Look, I understand.  I also often wondered why my parents stayed together.  I later learned that, both being from broken homes, they did...
Looks like we can't hold our relationships together any longer than the straight people.  10 years and out?  Really!  So for the second half of our children's rearing they are from broken homes.   Yo!  It's about the FAMILY!  Staying together for the sake of the...
I am happy that you have found relief and it gives me hope for my niece.  Now I just have to get her decent health insurance that will pay for acupuncture.  I once had acupuncture for chronic foot pain.  It was great but I could not get my insurance to keep paying for it and I could...
That is, my initial response to your first question is that most medications have several side effects, some of which are actually beneficial in treating other conditions.  That said, I can only assume many lesbians take birth control for the same reason as my niece -- because it eases other...
I find this "information" (and, yes, the quotation marks denote that I have not yet verified or vetted out this “information") disturbing because my 21 year old niece -- who was born of a cycst, by the way -- can get relief from pain only by using birth control pills.  Fortunately for me,...
Not being a user of birth control I've always been fuzzy on the details.  Which is a shame really, because my husband worked in  the (very cutting edge at the time) health center in high school where they handed out condoms and information. I know an aspirant to the presidency should know...
I met my kids when they were 6 & 7 and their mom was already co-habitating in a long term relationship.  (Yup, I'm a home wrecker!)  Since our relationship started out allegedly as a long distance (1379 miles)  business-turned-friendship (I have since discovered that she had...
Good for you!
Here we are going through our second parenthood.  We raised two and now we're raising two more.  Our situation is a bit different, more complex, more insane, but what I found interesting in the context of when and how to come out to your kids is this:  Our oldest son's father...
I am instantly offended when someone tries to push their agenda with shock value. Second of all, as a Christian, I consider it an affront to my religious beliefs for anyone to suggest that eating meat is sinful, just as a Jew or Muslim would be offended if someone tried to make them feel bad about...
I'll reach  out if anything of interest to the community comes up, but right now my community consists almost entirely of my wife, kids, and other family.  Maybe there's something there.  We'll see.
I don't really understand blogging, especially daily blogging (and twitter has me completely befuddled).  I mean, why would anyone care what I have to say on a daily basis?  Not even my wife and kids care about that!!  LOL. Perhaps I can guest now and then when something is...
Unfortunately, I'm also a boring, talentless hack from NY, so I don't really qualify.
Yes, well, umph~  
Not to hijack Steve Jobs' thread (I recognized his life changing contributions to technology), but at the time of Ferraro's death, I made specific mention that it was not noted here. (http://www.velvetparkmedia.com/blogs/open-thread-naked-thursday-67) And Grace, you know I love you like the long...
Steve Jobs you mention.  Geraldine Ferraro, not a peep. Wait, is this a women centered site?
