Re: Have you been bitten by an animal?

Oh man, I have a list. Only counting animals that broke skin. Dogs Cats Canada goose Swan Mice Gerbils Hamster Squirrel Chipmunk Crayfish Pike I think that's it. There are various other birds and fish but no blood was drawn. Although come to think of it the goose/Swan events may contain blood loss j...

Re: What is something you think about too much?

All the phone calls I have to make that I really really really don't want to make. Then I think about how bad my anxiety is about calling a bank and how that can't be normal and maybe I should go back to my doctor and discuss going on anti-anxiety medication but I really should be talking to someone...

Re: Clock-Ticking

If I remember correctly, all that stuff about fertility dropping dramatically at 35 is based on old and flawed data, so don't let the idea of TTC being so much harder let you scare you too much (obviously fertility drops, but it's not that bad). There are other considerations as you get older (at 29...

Re: Postpartum issues: things that can go wrong after

Re: Dating Older Men as a Feminist

I gotta admit, the idea of using whore as an insult has always confused me. In what other scenario is "you are so good at ABC, you should get paid to do it" an insult?
I wish I got paid to have sex, that'd be up there with being a taste tester at Ben & Jerry's

Re: bad reasons for having a baby

-I loved being pregnant.
-My sister really wants a niece
-While I was pregnant and roughly 7months after a lot of my mental health issues seemed to balance out.
-I'd get more financial aid for going back to school.

Re: Dating Older Men as a Feminist

Huh, I call that not being an asshole. Don't touch people who don't want to be touched. If your partner wants to be monogamous and you don't, don't be with your partner.

Other than the no touching, can someone be a hoe while single?

Re: Rape culture doesn't exist

Actually, we're being explicit that rape is not sex. I've had sex with quite a few people, can't say I've ever encountered a situation where getting consent ever ruined the mood. I find it alarming that so many people think it will. I've also been in a situation that "wasn't sexual assault because y...

We didn't find out specifically because we didn't want a lot of pink stuff if it was a girl.

Somehow MIL has still given us a ton of pink clothing that she'll change him into everytime she comes over.
