Re: My Ectopic Pregancy

Fuck ectopic pregnancy. :/ I've read other women's accounts of ectopic pregnancies and miscarriages. A common thread is that many people around these women aren't great at offering support or even taking the loss seriously. Culturally these events aren't as well understood or tread as, say, the deat...

Re: Star Wars: The Last Jedi (spoilers)

It seems incomplete to mention Mark Hamill's comment about "Jake Skywalker" (as if that was his final opinion) without also mentioning that Hamill came to respect the character's writing, as expressed in further comments days later: “I’ve had trouble accepting what [Johnson] saw for Luke but again, ...

Re: A Question, but sort of a rant: My New Thoughts of Being Apolitical

I don't think withdrawing from political discussions is a solution. First, I'll point out that doxing is a silencing tactic. It is designed to make people afraid to speak out or engage in public dialogue. This silence can happen in several ways. For prominent feminists who were doxxed over the last ...

Without just saying "I'm right, you're wrong," I think it amounts to competing headcanons, or these large-scale decisions about character and consistency that we mak...

Re: Teaching men how to find "the One"

I did the gender-flipping because, for me, it highlights points where the writer or reader might believe that women and men are different. For instance, perhaps you wouldn't describe women in so-and-so a way ("Also women/men have a tendancy to fall in lpve with the first man/woman nice enough to giv...

Re: MGTOW: Introduction

These comments seem substantially similar to the 12th century writer Andreas Capellanus, who dressed his warnings against love in similar misogyny or woman-hating. But it seems that there is still another reason why we should avoid love. The man who is in love is bound in a hard kind of slavery and ...
