It’s funny. I used to talk about nothing but myself. People thought it was ego but it turns it was pathetic insecurity, which was definitely true of me at the time.

We’re all a little dumber when we’re impaired by various substances. We have loose lips, or we sleep around, or we actually hurt people. Not an excuse, but a reason. Some people like to wave away some kinds of sexual assault because the assailant was impaired, as if this gives someone a free pass. No. I’ve done dumb stuff (not that kind of stuff; mostly saying mean shit) after...

Mature Young Adults
With all that’s been said, it’s good we have a bit more equality in entertainment about spoiled man-children and spoiled women-children but…. why for we can’t have something about young folks who are not layabouts? This isn’t a smack at the good entertainment that’s out there. Hell, Louie, on Louie, is pretty pathetic, and I wouldn’t change that. But...

Why are there SO MANY MOVIES where there is at least one or two male characters who absolutely hate their wives/gfs, feel like they’re emasculated, etc etc? Not only is this nasty to women, but it’s horrible for men, too, because it makes us look like we can’t be happy in relationships. Stop it, mostly male writers!

Re: Girls etc. Do extremely privileged white folks - even though who personally knew me for about five or six years - actually not think we exist here in New York, or do they just not care?

Listening to a caller on the Savage Lovecast from a (seemingly) terrified young woman at age 17 who has a slightly older cousin who has been harassing her.

Calling myself out
It’s true that, among the people from my high school who have become famous, all but one of them has had seeeeerious connections in the entertainment business. There is of course nepotism involved, but if my mom was an actor and I wanted to be one, I’m sure she’d pull strings. I’m not that enthused about the work most of them are doing. But there’s of course a minor...

Someone I was “talking to” recently said it seemed like I was on a mission (re: dating) and she didn’t want to get in my way. Interesting. I guess she’s right. I approach everything in a task-based fashion and I probably just can’t do that with this far more holistic process. I’m not holistic at all - but it’s worth considering for this, definitely. It...

It’s not a direct correlation or cause and effect situation, because domestic violence often rises during poor economic times, but DV (and death) is up over the last two years and funding for this life-saving work is on the decline.
