Sorry Neko. I've seen what you're going through. Spouse just had a tooth pulled and the fever chills were concerning. We celebrated the end of his alcohol disallowance yesterday. Even in the magic faerie land we don't have dental, unless you're pregnant, but I didn't know about that when I could hav...

Re: Abortion - My Stance and Why I Can Still Be a Feminist

Basically, first I will state my stance on abortion: -- An adult human has something that makes it wrong for somebody to kill it (whatever this may be, I will simply refer to it as "a life"). There comes a point where the unborn child has this. -- Once the unborn child has this (considered to be "a...

Re: Do you read comic books?

Not much. I wasn't allowed when I was a kid, so had no idea how incredible they were until adulthood. And now, if I can't get my hands on it easily, I'm not going to read it, though I am still compiling to-read-lists in my head.

Re: housemates + newborn = ?

I live with my in-laws, and while there will certainly be a lot of differences from your situation, maybe there's enough similarities that my experience could be useful to you. I think the biggest thing is that everyone has their own space. Our house is sort of divided in two, so we can take the kid...

Re: Compromise between Conservatives/TERFeminism and Transfeminism.

I don't really get the concerns about safety, to be honest. It's communally monitored in addition to being monitored by the organization providing the space. Nude beach culture is very benign. I have gone for years and only witnessed a few incidents (we're talking 2 or 3 in 10 years), mostly pervy ...

Re: Compromise between Conservatives/TERFeminism and Transfeminism.

I don't think this proposed compromise does anything to address the safety of trans persons in public restrooms or changing rooms. I've been to plenty of places that had single stall restrooms that weren't gendered, and plenty that were. There is no reason for a single occupancy restroom to specify ...

Re: do you enjoy marimba?

MFS, you have super cool kids. Marimba was my favorite melodic percussion instrument to play, except maybe the chimes parts in any Mahler piece. It felt so good that I didn't even mind resting through all those time changes with a director that didn't cue.

I want to say Papaya is the worst, but maybe I've had it so seldom that I haven't given it a fair chance. Oranges, of the fruit commonly available to me. Persimmons if we go with seasonally available.

Re: What is male privilege?

Growing up, we had to put the lid down so that nothing in the medicine cabinet would fall in, double gross.
The lid also protects toothbrushes from airborne paticles thrown up during the flush, triple gross.
