I have an uncommon name, hundreds of bylines going back about 15 years, and author profiles on a handful of websites. My current married name has 8000+ hits, my unmarried name about 374,000. In fact, my home fucking address comes right up thanks to fucking Blockshopper.

Like a “Awesome! That starts my week off in a fantastic and inspiring way!” sort of email?

While I like the drama of your version better, the simple answer is that she never would have said no. Saying no would be making an enormous political statement and the monarchy goes to extremes to remain non political.

Thanks!  The new list of places is much, much longer than my original list (a combination of my previous grade and the ones I could ‘compete for’ at the higher grade).  Now the ‘higher’ grade is all open to me, though I won’t be competitive for a lot of the nicer places compared to other people with a lot more

Thanks!  I’m looking over the list now and making edits with BellaFella to narrow it down from the 215 on the unfiltered list.  With some basic things filtered, we’ll get it down to 125/150 and then it’s more about where we’d go and what I would realistically be competitive for since I’ve gotten promoted so early.

Honestly? Probably something ridiculously minor. You say nuking Greenland and buying hurricanes is a big deal, but we’re talking about fucking Trump here. He doesn’t care about that. She probably told someone what brand of bronzer he uses and THAT IS OVER THE FUCKING LINE.

Because no matter their feelings, political animals will always choose the “pragmatic” approach in order to solidify their relationship to centers of power.

I guess because this person is clearly racist, they probably think other white people think like them and are only objecting to the racist decoration on behalf of POC (rather than... their own minds). It’s baffling though.

My god yes. Go you! The amount of men with learned helplessness regarding housework is truly depressing. “But you’re just better at it.” or “I don’t do it right” or “I don’t know what to do, just tell me what to do and I’ll do itare things I’ve heard so many times from men. Well, how do you think I learned how to do

If prostitution is the oldest profession, “choreplay” (EYE FUCKING ROLL) is its oldest cousin. Women have *alllllllways* done/had to do shit like this to get what they wanted or needed from their men. We just never had fuckin cutesy Pinteresty names for it.

It’s not exactly my office drama, but drama in one of the academic units I’m affiliated with that I’ve heard about...

Frankly, their goal isn't that far off from the meat women. Welcome to the revolution, robobabes!

Uhm, is anyone catching a weird undertone where Mr Dollbanger kind of sounds like he’s kinda really getting off on the idea of these dolls coming to life and strangling him?
