You know what the only thing equal to being tortured at shitty wedding and baby showers where your female relatives shame you for "ruining" your mother's life for refusing to give her grandchildren? Being forced to create "heart felt" scrapbook pages for someone's "transitional gathering". » 4/27/12 10:14am 4/27/12 10:14am

I would probably encourage my daughter to choose one of these prom dresses just so that I could buy the extra-large prom night picture package, frame and hang those suckers in the living room... where they would stay well into her 30s. » 3/30/12 3:23pm 3/30/12 3:23pm

Is it seriously acceptable to fuck with your kids like this? In elementary school, I remember "practical jokes" (pretend to want to do/give me something nice, then do something mean instead and laugh at my reaction) being one of the most cruel ways that bullies would make my daily life hell. If my parents had done… » 12/14/11 2:14pm 12/14/11 2:14pm

I have super tiny labia, and always thought I was "lucky" because of propaganda against "big" labia. But then I found out that my tiny labia is the result of a potentially debilitating genetic skin disease (lichen sclerosis, don't google it while at work or eating) and I don't feel so lucky anymore :p » 11/30/11 9:07am 11/30/11 9:07am

Would have been nice to have the video be the first item in the slideshow, so we could watch and make our own interpretations before reading the deconstruction. Not that I disagree with what's been said, but I hate not knowing what my perception would have been if I hadn't read the article first. » 11/21/11 11:24am 11/21/11 11:24am

I got a copper IUD 4 years ago, at 25 (no kids, steady relationship, was on BC pills since I was 16). About a year ago it got dislodged and I had to have it removed and ended up replacing it with a Mirena IUD (the one with hormones). Having had both, I would definitely recommend the Mirena over the copper IUD. I've… » 11/08/11 9:13am 11/08/11 9:13am

You know what? I'm going to put a huge part of the fault here on the photographers. I don't doubt that his couple is a matching pair of rich WASPy douchebags, but I think it is completely reasonable that the couple could love the aesthetic of this time period and be ignorant of the underlying history and oppression… » 7/12/11 8:11pm 7/12/11 8:11pm

I know I started getting them yearly because it was a requirement in my state to get birth control pills. Then one year, I tested positive and turned out I had a large cluster of pre-cancerous cells. If I had waited another year, could it have developed into cancer? » 7/05/11 7:47pm 7/05/11 7:47pm

I think it has just as much to do with the choices these girls have for their life before they even get pregnant. In most rural areas in NC like this, there isn't much for a teen girl to look forward to in her life other than getting married and having children. Some girls may aspire to be teachers or nurses, and the… » 5/04/11 2:28pm 5/04/11 2:28pm

I would typically not give a rat's ass about this stuff. However, it just so happens that my mother is having surgery on the 29th. So, I am actually looking forward to slipping into the role of someone who is obsessed about the Royal Wedding while in the hospital waiting room rather than having to obsess over my… » 4/21/11 3:12pm 4/21/11 3:12pm

I just had an IUD removed after having it in the wrong position for 3 years. My long-time gyno must have put it in wrong, and retired 6 months later. His fresh-out-of-school replacement used a sonogram to check the position at my next annual exam, and she thought it looked fine. Both of them told me that my crazy… » 3/30/11 11:30am 3/30/11 11:30am

As a web designer - why do web designers feel the need to fuck with the native behavior of web browsers' scrolling functionality? Every user knows how it works, it works the same for every site, that is a GOOD thing. It's called usability. » 2/07/11 10:01pm 2/07/11 10:01pm
