There was a lot of unnecessary detail that threw me. A lot of unfired Chekhov’s guns. When I read a ghost story where the bride was buried in so much gold jewelry she glowed, I expect her ghostly presence to be revealed for what it is by some ethereal sparkles.

That you were assaulted, and that almost every woman is eventually harassed or assaulted, are really two separate conversations. You could have one or the other without having both. You could also have both, of course. I personally wouldn't combine them into one, though.

Oh no. I’m so sorry! I never even met the sweet little purr machine and I’m upset. You did a good thing, taking her in and loving her.

Don’t know about the study but that's certainly been the case in my circle of friends. Almost every woman I know who has had kids in the last five years was less interested in having kids than her male partner was.

I think it came from the same place as the contemporary insult: the idea (true? False? I have no idea) that every snowflake is unique. Years ago, pro-lifers latched onto this because OMG every embryo has a unique human soul! and it wasn’t until later that the term came to be used sarcastically in a derogatory way, Read more

She could nail actual vienna sausages to literal mini coffins and walk around in them and look better than I ever will. I’m not gonna wear something just because she rocked it.
