Admin has said in the past that only people he knows personally will become mods.

A number of different events have made me ponder the following question: What exactly makes someone a slut? Tonight I asked my husband what he thought. He considered for a moment then said, "A slut is any woman that you don't like." Yeah, basically. Me, I think that people call someone a slut if she dresses in a manner that they don't like or they think that she has more sex than they do, regardless of what that amount actually is.

Honestly, the amount of time and energy that some people put into worrying about things that are none of their business is pretty mind-boggling.

Your husband gets a round of applause.

Because basically calling a woman a slut insinuates that if she has more sex or has multiple partners she is a bad person for doing so. It's all created by the dumb people who wanna keep the ladies who do what makes them happy down.

Maybe in the early days. You haven't really bothered since you made a post that seemed like you were trying to restart that stupid Mexican food drama. That was 2 years ago.

He's right. I see women called sluts for everything. "That girl stole my parking space, what a slut!" And no, I'm not exaggerating, people have actually said things like that.

Hooooooly shit, I'd clean forgotten about that! (I still maintain that not all Mexican food is spicy though. )

I truly don't hate anyone. It's more an issue of being bored at work and a contrarian.

I read something a while ago that said something like "What's wrong with being called a slut? I'm getting laid and you're not?" or something? That's one way to look at it XD

The etymology of the word is interesting. It originally meant a woman who was dirty or untidy. It could also mean a woman who was "bold", which is to say, outspoken rather than demure and deferential. So it seems to me that basically, any woman who doesn't look or behave in the way that general society wants her to eventually gets called a slut.

All I want is a cute, functional, lightweight bathrobe. In my size. That costs less than $60.

Is that too much to ask?

There's this one role play blog OC on tumblr that is one of those OCs that bug me. She's not horrible, as far as I know but there's things that bug me. Luckily she stays away from me, but she interacts with a few of my role play buddies. She's like a nine year old pony (yes a MLP pony) and yet is sexual with a character who is 18 (Who keeps turning her away due to her age). She also seems to have this over the top sad past, I don't know the details, since she doesn't say anything about her past anywhere. OCs like this just irk me. I really love mine and put a lot of effort into them and it's not that hard to make a good character.
I keep on hoping it's a joke
But it's their character, I have no say over what they should do.

One of my friends, whom I've told for the third or fourth year in a row to start RIGHT after Otakon if she wanted a costume done by next year's Otakon, still hasn't even gathered materials. There's less than two months left and she's never made a costume before.

She said "don't lose faith in me," but there's no way that I can because I never had it in the first place!!! I love her but I know she's super-busy and tight on money and thus didn't believe for a second that she would get anything done.

It's okay though, cuz I AIN'T EVEN MAD. Whether she has a costume done or not has no effect on my costume progress.

Well I've certainly been called one before. Ironically, it was usually by a guy whose advances I declined to acknowledge.

I really wish people would stop using the term "I weep for your childhood". Just say "I can't believe you've never played or watched such and such a series" because it gets the point across without sounding like a condescending prick.

I've had two people tell me this when I have openly stated I hadn't played a Mega Man game up until two years ago and it's really, really annoying. I was born in 1989, didn't own the SNES (that belonged to my sister) and had a tendency to abuse my electronics; you'd bitch at me for destroying the Mega Man cartridge if I had ever touched one as a kid, no doubt.
