Damn, Gina

Sorry not sorry that you can’t even but I got your moist panties right here

I put my hand on my husband’s arm and said, “I just want you to know that nowhere underneath any of this is a princess. If you scratch hard enough, you’ll probably find someone who’d live in a gutter,” to which he smiled and said “Duh.”

My latest guest post is up at Dooce.

This seems like a really irresponsible way to store lightbulbs.

I wrote about the Restoration Hardware “annual source books,” AKA 11 pounds of catalog/$240 worth of pudding.

"It’s sad to see a man of generally good character in the dock for such a serious offence.

"I do not regard you as a classic rapist. I do not think you are a general danger to strangers. You are not the type who goes searching for a woman to rape.

"This was a case where you just lost control of normal restraint."

"It was almost out of the blue that two girls turned up late at night, very, very drunk, at your home.

"The victim was the worst for drink out of the two of them. She was completely out of it. I accept that evidence.

"She was a pretty girl who you fancied. You simply could not resist. You had sex with her."

Judge Michael Mettyear, to convicted rapist Lee Setford during sentencing, for which he received 5 years in jail for raping an unconscious woman in his home.

Imagine the same type of apologistic statements being told by a judge to someone convicted of robbing people on the street…

"It was almost out of the blue that a wealthy couple turned up late at night, with expensive phones and full wallets, outside your home."
"I do not regard you as a classic robber.  I do not think you are a general danger to strangers. You are not the type who goes searching for a person to rob."
"She was a wealthy woman whose handbag you wanted. You simply could not resist. You had to rob her."

Rape culture is the fact that no other crime would be treated with such dismissiveness of the seriousness of the act.

I need to feel this tile on my bare feet immediately

(I opened this and said “oof” out loud — not feeling too confident lately, but this was nice to do.)
1. I am really good at loving my loved ones.
2. I am very good at making my family laugh.
3. I am so good at naming celebrity voiceovers in commercials.
4. I have beautiful handwriting.
5. Ain’t nobody load the dishwasher like me.

Does anyone else have an issue where they can’t reply to asks/messages? I have a bunch sitting here that I can’t do anything with. I promise I’m not a super busy ignoring rude person.
