I was also 24 when I got my first abnormal pap. I’ve known several women who went through something similar - as scary as it sounds, abnormal cells are possibly the most normal thing ever. I got the biopsy, colposcopy, and ultimately a LEEP. I had a regular pap every 3 months for the first year, 6 months for the… Read more
People think Steve Jobs was the genius of our times. The bar wasn’t set very high.
This needs more stars!
I can’t speak for anyone else but I got pretty tired of being eternally gray with no end in sight. I used to just struggle through it but once I found other social outlets then Jezebel dropped pretty far down the list for me.

I’m super late on this, just came to commend you on the fabulous name of Fritti Tailchaser for your Miqo’te. Tailchaser’s Song is so underappreciated.
This is amazing and I wish I could give you more stars.
