Okay, now I’m really mad. Period-trapping involves her...implicitly assuming that no one wants to have sex then. And they’re the feminists?

My take on Trump's first year as an African-American mom and veteran


You know, Trump is a lot of things, but it really surprises me to hear that he spent the last year as an African-American mom and veteran. Who knew the man had such range?

I'm trying to reconcile anything feminist with "trapping" rhetoric around see and relationships. It's all weirdly immature and desperate.

These babe.net articles are just lulzy to me. They strike me as silly and aimed at the young and naive. I'm not afraid of women who take it seriously in the least. They're not going to date me, I'm not going to date them, win-win. It's not like they're instilling anti-male policies in institutions like the judicial system, workplace, and academe.

Well, yeah. But "get him to admit you're his gf" and "get him to do you in spite of a lame taboo" are different types of immature and desperate, and they managed to pick the retrograde one.

Ugh. I read the covered-dick-pic piece Nicole linked to, and barely skimmed over a couple more after that; it reads to me like something written by a young teenage girl who only a week ago switched over from "kissing is icky and gross" to "whoa, I have a sex drive!" and is trying to sound very worldly and sophisticated, but failing miserably in the attempt.
