  • Good for him for trying that though. Hopefully now he has a new perspective and will be able to make changes for people who have no choice but to live like that.

    I don’t think there is anything wrong with wanting to look and feel beautiful. I think what needs to happen though is that we need to redefine what beauty is. I think we need to realize that all of us look different and have different bodies and stop trying to find some ideal look. It’s [...]

    Thumbnail An SYTYCB entry My inspiration for this post comes from this article. Another one that was sent to me by my brother. It’s about “partial birth” abortions and how Obama is a baby killer. (seriously) While this entire article is incredibly offensive, way over exaggerated and for the most part factually inaccurate (the entire website is [...]

    This is a response to @geegee (whose comment also didn’t get approved yet) about how adoption is also a long and expensive process and is it actually easier: I think you make a good point but here’s my argument: 1.The process of adoption is definitely a long one that requires planning ahead of time and being [...]

    It was pointed out to me in a comment by @tetesagehen (that hasn’t been approved to be posted yet) that when I said “the biggest thing stopping women from getting pregnant is work” I was generalizing and that this isn’t necessarily true. This was an honest typo. I meant to say something more along the lines [...]

    Oh wow. I haven’t watched any of the new season yet (I don’t have hbo so I have to wait til it’s available on dvd). I agree with your conflicted feelings of true blood but for the most part I try and ignore the parts that I find questionable and don’t take the show too [...]

    Exactly. And another part of the problem from what I’ve been reading is that women are finding out about this when they are already in their late 30s and 40s and aren’t as fertile as they may have been in their 20s. Another interesting thing I’ve been reading though that I didn’t mention in my [...]

    Right but at the stage its in it isn’t even guaranteed that it will work and it is drastically expensive. Maybe in the future this can be a good thing but at this point I really don’t think it’s worth it.

    Well what the procedure does is remove your eggs for future use but then they get inserted back into the uterus after being fertilized so that you yourself can get pregnant and have the baby. I guess in the case of a trans man I suppose this could work because they could freeze their old [...]

    Thumbnail A SYTYCB entry In the mail this morning I received a copy of the libertarian Reason magazine with my name on it that must have been sent to me by my conservative brother. I’ll read anything that you put in front of me so I began flipping through it. I came across an article that caught my [...]

    Ok I figured out how to post the logo. But now I have a second question: How long does it take to be reviewed before it actually gets posted?

  • Carly commented on the blog post So You Think You Can Blog starts today!   2 years, 1 month ago · View

    Can someone please answer the question on how to upload the logo? I do not see any button to upload/insert and html is not working.

  • Carly commented on the blog post Breast Regards: The “I (heart) Boobies” Bracelet Ban   2 years, 1 month ago · View

    I agree with your criticisms of the bracelets but I still think they provide a fun way to get out the word. Also, I don’t think it sexualizes breast cancer itself, it is sexualizing the fight against breast cancer. With that said I completely agree that it is dehumanizing to say “boobies” and ignore the [...]

    I completely agree with you. I mean I understand people giving her some criticism but it’s really time they lay off. There definitely would not be this kind of outcry if she were a man. And the fact that she lost her job over it!?!? That’s just not fair.
