I hate it when mom and dad fight.– - the 29th of 399 reader comments on Stranger editorial director Dan Savage’s “Hello, I’m Not the Enemy” post, a response to Stranger writer Lindy West’s post accusing Savage of “contributing to the fucking Alp of shame that crushes every fat person every day of their lives—the same shame that makes...
The Overshare, the Shoved Aside, and the One Last...
L and I caught a showing of Blue Valentine last week before it left theaters around here. Watching it with my partner didn’t make me feel as sad and distrustful of marriage as I thought it would have. The heaviness of watching it came from being—as trite as it is, I’m going to type it—the child of divorce. Oh, Frankie. Kid. I feel you. It fucking sucks having no...

Kitchen Witchcraft from Eric at mocs1986 →
I’m not vegan. I wasn’t even a good vegetarian. I was a pescetarian who broke for a cold turkey sandwich one Thanksgiving night a mere four months after deciding to forgo meat, ahem, cold turkey. I just love food. All kinds. And I love accompanying recipes that force me out of my tomato/bean-based comfort zone.
Confirmations and a New Tradition
Even feigning interest in sports events has become challenging to me as I’ve aged. I used to fake it and make cupcakes in team colors, but now I can’t even hide my apathy. We showed up during the second quarter, and by halftime, I had given up my seat on the couch to meander in pursuit of a drink and a bratwurst. Ads, even the best and cutest, cause me to think about how much...
No Kidding: Why is It "Selfish" to Be Childfree? →
bitchmedia: In my opinion, the strangest persistent belief about childfree women is that we’re selfish. From the jump, this is problematic as this logic negates the experiences of infertile… “Relationships with others can greatly inform us about who we are and even why we matter. But it’s pretty unfair to say that you can only find yourself—as if authenticity is an unchanging...
Seattle Stairway Walks: Fremont →
“In its 120 years of existence Fremont has gone through a series of economic and social upheavals - all played out in a complicated geography of just 1.4 square miles. From this crucible has emerged a neighborhood with probably more color, energy and visual interest than any other in Seattle. “ via Fremont Universe
imremembering: Starter Jackets I had this! I wore the shit out of this! Why? Who the fuck knows. I knew who Muggsy Bogues was. That was about it. But JCPenney’s was my jam. If it came from JCP’s, it meant it was cooler than Wal Mart, ergo, my Hornets jacket was cool.
Of Tumblr and Self-Awareness
via email, in which Opal is spot-on: I think “I saw it on my Dashboard” is the new “I heard it on NPR.” The signifiers of white, middle class privilege are changing so rapidly. Soon we’ll all be saying “I processed it on my cortical interface” or maybe just “Beep, boop, blorp.”
