    I always want to shake these people: coming from someone who has a history of sexual assault, in inf fact DO consider it rape when one person says no and the other person continues despite the No. Or the “I don’t want to” or the “I am in a relationship” or the “I can’t” Just [...]

  • chelsa commented on the blog post “Protect Life Act” would allow doctors to let pregnant women die   3 years, 5 months ago · View

    Is this the natural extension of conscience clauses? If so, I am not surprised, but seriously grossed out. The double standard really chaps my ass, too. I mean, there was that Catholic hospital in the news a while back that fired a nurse that approved a life-saving abortion for a woman who was about to [...]

    Sorry, I didn’t really talk about the piercings! I got the two in my lobes, because that’s what girls do. My mom took me when I was about 11 or 12, and they got horribly infected and I hated them. Turns out I was allergic to the cheap metal. Even though we were really poor, [...]

    1. How many tattoos or piercings do you have? 7 Piercings and 2 tattoos. 2. Where are they located? Are they easy to hide? I have four piercings in my ears that no one cares about. My nose ring is pretty standard stuff where I live. My septum ring, I’ve started either flipping up or [...]

    Let’s just clear up some serious problems with your post: 1. You do not have to get HPV to have abnormal pap smears. I’ve never had HPV, but I’ve had to get a LEEP done. 2. You don’t have to sleep with multiple partners to get an STI. You can sleep with one person and still [...]

    I just wanted to add to this because I just find it extremely important. I didn’t know much about hystorectomies until very recently. So, the personal story is this: In 1985, my mother had a hystorectomy immediately following the birth of my younger brother. I never knew exactly what the problem was that necessitated the [...]

    Man, National Velvet was my FAVOURITE movie growing up. I just loved it to pieces. It made me try things I never thought I could do. :)

    @anna So, I submitted a post on Friday afternoon, and I notice it’s still sitting in the ”pending” queue. Can you tell me if there’s something objectional, or if it just kinda slipped through the cracks of something? Cause I’d really like to see if published.

      Hi chelsa. Your post went up yesterday.

  • chelsa commented on the blog post Who Counts In Canada?   4 years ago · View

    To be fair, the long census form isn’t being totally scrapped: it’s being replaced with a voluntary version that will be sent out to a larger portion of Canadian households. However, since the long form is going to lose its mandatory status, any data gathered from it will be a self-selecting group, and therefore, the [...]

    I don’t like her at all. her music is bland, unimaginative and frankly, stupid. Everytime I hear her sing, I feel like driving an ice pick through my temporal lobe. Yeah, she showed up on SNL and was fierce in her outspokeness on being a woman who wants sex and to party…. and she was [...]

  • Chloe, you nailed it. It just pisses me off when people go off on an “Well, how crappy would it be if your mother had aborted you?” Frankly, I AM adopted. I’m so happy my bio-mom made the decision to carry me to term. But that being said, now as a fully-functioning human adult, looking [...]

    Crossposted on my blog, Apathetic in Alberta After reading  this post  by Alberta Altruist, I scrapped my work on “The Perils of Online Voting” (which was a whole mess of chaos, best saved for another time), and decided to tackle one of the subjects I am most passionate about: reproductive health. Only because I had no desire to clog [...]

    Stumbled on this story in my Twitter feed:

    An Arkansas teenager and her mother are suing a private Christian high school over the treatment the daughter received when school officials learned she was pregnant. According to the lawsuit, officials at Trinity Christian School badgered the teen into admitting her pregnancy, then expelled her on the spot [...]

    So I was grocery shopping on Sunday. Very typical. Very average. Needed some lunch meat, or some absurdity. Anyway, so I’m standing in line at the checkout, when a People… or Stars, or some such celebrity gossip rag catches my eye:

    During my ritual browsing this morning, I happened to notice a really cool post on one of my favourite webcomics that made me sigh contentedly. I mean, people don’t always need a pat on the back for doing the right thing, but I think it helps: So I am really pissed about Proposition 8 in California. Until I [...]

  • (This is an older rant I had, that I thought I would share with the readers. Please… opinionify it!) Dear Dr. Phil, I want to thank you for bringing your ridiculousness to a new level today. Now, I may be a little biased, as I think your show is a bit of a sham, but today [...]
