People not from the backwoods are also pretty goddamn bad about dating and continuing date people who molest their children. Ask (at least) half the non-backwoods kids what happened when they told one of their parents that the other was molesting them. Hell, ask Jerry Sandusky's son what he thinks of his mother. » 10/24/14 6:31pm Friday 6:31pm

Preach. I've been trying to make room in the category for myself and have typically defended gamers as a broad group of people with all kinds of interests and lifestyles, but I'm done with that shit. Everyone plays games now. Let the sexist loser dudes have the title, and mock them when their conduct merits it. » 10/23/14 4:59pm Thursday 4:59pm

Yeah, I've been moving in this direction for awhile now, but I'm done being a "gamer." A person who plays video games? Sure. But the sexist loser dudes can have the gamer identity, and the next time someone mocks gamers for being that, I'm not getting my back up over it. I'm also sure the gamers give zero fucks if I… » 10/23/14 2:50pm Thursday 2:50pm

That sounds like the dress code where I work. I sometimes dress more formally just because, but today I'm wearing nice jeans and a light cardigan with 3/4 length sleeves. I'm generally a cardigan person, so I'll recommend those - they tend to look a little dressier than an ordinary shirt, even when they're paired with… » 10/22/14 6:42pm Wednesday 6:42pm

It is sort of interesting. There are certainly things about her that can be mocked and condemned, but most of them aren't unique to her. Being married three times is relatively common among celebrities, there are apparently plenty of sex tapes to go around, and she's not the only person lacking in dramatic or musical… » 10/22/14 12:53am Wednesday 12:53am

I think that's a reasonable enough conclusion for him to come to. I think part of why his essay rubbed me wrong is that I didn't see full recognition on his part that the reason that the sex workers he meets seem so amazing compared to the women he sees on dating sites or meets at singles mixers is that he's paying… » 10/21/14 7:30pm Tuesday 7:30pm

1. Yes, the baby might end up rejecting the trendy nipples or being allergic to the expensive body wash. The baby might not use or be allergic to an off the registry gift, either. There's a certain amount of risk in choosing presents for a child who doesn't exist yet and parents whose ideas about parenting are… » 10/21/14 6:40pm Tuesday 6:40pm

If chivalry is dead, I'll have a hell of a time celebrating at its wake. It was never anything more than a series of compensatory gestures toward relatively wealthy, white women (because, please, no one bothered with chivalry toward their slaves or the impoverished widow who took in washing or to sex workers) to… » 10/21/14 4:06pm Tuesday 4:06pm

You can tell that's one of the things they fight about. If your strategy to win back the affections of your beloved consists of little more than letting her win a handful of old arguments where she was probably in the right in the first place, you need to step it up a bit. » 10/21/14 3:43pm Tuesday 3:43pm
