I’ve been looking forward to this article since I saw your name and photo in a news article on Brian Mason issuing licenses, and I wasn’t disappointed - it was a lovely read. Many warm felicitations on your wedding.
The crush goes both ways, dear heart! I think you are a terrific influence on Jez, and I didn't include you in my first comment because you're ONE OF US. That was short-sighted foolishness on my part.
The problem is the lack of even-handed response to any and all criticism. The first rule of the internet is, "Consider the source." There's dismissal of trolls, then there's turning a tin ear to anyone who isn't kissing your ass. I'm tired of the Jezebel staff (current company excluded) from acting like the commenters…
Every day is a new day.
Your intimacy issues run far deeper if you'd be hurt by your boyfriend choosing his hand over you.
Your ex's inability to deal does not mean masturbation is not healthy or that many men are able to view porn without it being an issue.
The family doesn't want compassion, they want their daughter back and have deluded themselves into thinking the machines will provide it for them.
Jahi is brain-dead. Her corpse is on a breathing machine. She is no longer a "little girl".
I think a lot depends on the type of relationship. If my husband "cheated" on me, the set of circumstances would have to be very strange indeed. However, I've been cheated on before, but I've always had pre-existing concerns about the relationship ahead of time.
I missed this due to shenanigans in my life at the time. You'll be missed, but thanks for continuing to contribute to the community (amazing alliteration!) and for bringing us Mark. :)
Also: Thanks, when that happened I was dealing with the aftermath of a death in the family, illness, and being tired of the enormous heaps of shit that commenters seem to have to wade through around here. I didn't know. :(
Well, of course, Burt is awesome. :)
I'm just tired of people judging people that they don't know.
The number of incredibly thin-skinned Jez staff seems to grow daily. If it's not Laura, Lindy, or Mark at this point I've decided not to even bother.
Or, "walk in, realize what he's doing, and enthusiastically join in".
Holy shitballs, is there anyone on the Jezebel staff who can take criticism without getting all bitchy about it?
There are many people who talk just as much shit about "girls they know personally".
She sounds stable.
Your avatar is hypnotizing.
Good for you - protect yourself first. No one else will. Learned that one the hard way in life.
