This may be TMI, but I wrote (and had published) a BDSM themed erotic story where a lady used a similar device with a man and a woman.

It's not even something to speculate about. They have STATED CLEARLY on multiple occasions that they do. They're openly "monogamish," to borrow a term from Dan Savage. I do not understand why this is "news." Read more

Am I the only one who was disappointed in her role and performance? The group therapy felt like something we had seen on oitnb, and I felt like her "maybe I'm a lesbian" line was just insincere and meant to be a funny gag. I was so excited to see her but felt like her character was so lame!

Calling intermittent fasting terrifying is kinda melodramatic don't you think? I've done it for 11 months, and it's not bad at all. I could keep it up for quite a while. Ask me anything!

I cannot overstate how badly I wish this article was written by The Onion's Jean Teasdale.

The 'little people'? Really? Are you purposely going for that Leona Helmsley "only the little people pay taxes" vibe? Yikes. Read more

Can we not glorify weight loss, please? Can we find it within ourselves to accept ourselves as we are, in all our strange forms?

I've personally never viewed this song as IT'S OK THAT YOU GUYS ARE GAY. LET ME TELL YOU WHY. Because while the song obviously sends the message that there's nothing wrong with being gay, I've always viewed it as mainly having the intention of making straight people reconsider their bigoted beliefs, if they have Read more

I'm an adult, and I'm all nuanced about the songs I listen to, but I know a lot of teenagers. I know about 10 teenage boys who LOVE Macklemore, and are now championing LGBTQ rights as a result. In fact, one teen boy I know came out to his friends after watching them change their anti-gay views as a result of that Read more

I'm pretty queer—I'm gay-marrying a lady in a few weeks and feeling pretty good about it. While I'm aware that the song is problematic and the freedom of straight white males to say whatever they want is a huge problem, I just like the song anyway and appreciate the message. Read more

You know why I like this song? Because it's popular. Because the other day, I heard my 8 year old girl singing Mary Lambert's part without bothering to ask why a woman would be singing romantically about another woman. That's why I like this song and it's why I changed my mind about Macklemore. I saw the video on this Read more

When I first heard about the backlash against Macklemore for writing an explicitly pro-LGBT anthem my eyes rolled so hard they almost fell out of their sockets. Read more

It doesn't offend me to have a cis straight guy singing about gay rights. I feel kind of the same about this as I do about, say, men being in the "this is what a feminist looks like" meme—men trying to get other men to realize that it's not uncool to be feminist. Macklemore isn't trying to soothe LGBTQ kids, he's Read more

But why? He's never experienced the world as a gay man. If he were trying to tell someone else's story as his own wouldn't that be disingenuous? I think the song is just fine. It raises awareness about LGBT issues without claiming it as his own personal issue. Also the chorus of the song gives a voice to lesbian and Read more

I think in his lyrics he's not so much saying "it's okay to be gay," as much as he's saying "it's not okay to be intolerant." It's an important distinction. He's not speaking for the gay community; he's speaking as a straight person trying to share a message of acceptance and love with other straight people. Read more

Did it ever occur to you that progress is not made as quickly as it could be, because every time a straight/white/non-minority/etc. does something to call attention to a cause we call them disingenuous? I honestly think this falls under the same mindset as no press is bad press. Regardless, if he can bring the LGBT Read more
