- Cristiona is a 30something bisexual, liberal, feminist woman who clearly does not choose her online personas based upon silly concepts like ease of pronounciation. She enjoys talking about politics, racism, religion, feminism, sexuality, the environment, technology, tv, books, cats, knitting, mental health, news, and the Oxford comma. This would go far to explain why she is rarely invited back to parties.

I love guy on guy action. When watching TV shows I'm more apt to 'ship two male characters over whatever male/female the show happens to be writing. I realize this is horrendously shallow of me but hey - take one hot guy, add another hot guy, let them be hot guys… Read full post »
Though I am female, bisexual, and was well past my teens at the time of my own self-outing, I watched the scene in Glee of Kurt coming out to his father with such a feeling of familiarity that I wanted to find every person involved in the making of that fictional… Read full post »
"Because they're an alcoholic" is a concept you grow used to
when spending time around people with drinking problems. Why do
they act the way they do? Why do they have such skewed priorities?
Why do they put work/family/life last? Why do they drink so
Because they're an alcoholic.
It's not meant… Read full post »
I ran into my first clothesline traffic jam today.
Do we have a term for that? If not, we should. I'm talking about when you're all set to do laundry and hang it out on the line, only to find that your neighbors have gotten there first and filled it up… Read full post »
Fresh chicken eggs are a gateway drug.
Actually that's not fair. In-season vegetables and fruits are probably what started it. Once you realize that a raw tomato isn't supposed to taste like this gross watery woody thing but, instead, should taste like, yanno, a tomato the rest starts tumbling into… Read full post »
Bad news spreads like wildfire. Good news, not so much.
Still, I hope that the news that the Stamford Marriott is withdrawing their claim of negligence against a woman raped in their parking lot manages to spread as far as the original news about the case did.
The Stamford Advocate article notes:

Shakesville has a post about
The Stamford Marriott Hotel & Spa blaming a woman for her own
rape. (To be fair, so does Salon's very own
Broadsheet, but Shakesville has both a write up as well as
detailed contact information.)
If you've missed the story, the short version is that a… Read full post »
For the record I do not (currently) have any problems with OS
putting ads up on the site. Gotta pay the bills and blah blah
However, I do have a problem with an ad I just saw on my page.
I'm going to be talking about mental health here. A lot. I'll… Read full post »
"At least right now it's just your mom on medication," my dad
said to me over dinner last night. "Can you imagine if I was sick
and we both fell into the donut hole?"
"The what now?" I replied, showing off the college education that he'd paid such good money for.
Apparently… Read full post »
The tip of my left index finger is numb.
This is the fault of Jenna Woginrich though she's never met me, I've never met her, and pesky concepts like being aware of each other's existence only go one way. Still, she's entirely to blame.
Thanks to her book, Made From Scratch, I've begun… Read full post »
I was going to write about my bathroom--and I will--but allow me
a moment to get sidetracked by something I saw on MTV.
(Insert your own "God knows it wasn't a music video" joke here.)
It was a best and worst moments of True Life clip show. I was exercising, the time goes… Read full post »
When a celebrity dies alone in a room surrounded by a setup out of a whodunit riddle ("The door was locked but there were three flower petals on the windowsill...") the word "suicide" comes up, then is quickly shoved aside. It's not suicide. It was an accident. An unintended drug overdose.… Read full post »
Last month I wanted a bike. This month it's a breast
The underlying connection is my brain chemistry. Or perhaps there's no underlying connection at all. This is what happens when you're crazy.
My type of crazy is controlled by medicine. I know that because before I found the right set… Read full post »
Ha, ha, no. That would actually make sense. Instead the ad has been banned because the domestic violence PSA shows--wait f/…
Good news if you hate airport metal detectors. Apparently the TSA has plans to replace them! Yes, everything you hated about dealing with airport metal detectors will soon be gone in exchange for a system that combines all the annoyance of airport metal detectors with the joy of being photographed na… Read full post »
On the heels of NOM, which shows that gays can't be given basic civil rights without being accused of destroying the country and possibly even giving cancer to God-fearing kittens and puppies, we now find Amazon.com deciding that even books about LBGT characters must be hidden away or else the terror… Read full post »
You're not made of rubber. You don't bounce back.
This is what happens when things aren't quite right. It's not as bad as before. It's comparatively so much better than before that it makes previous times feel like fairy tales. Hitting, burning, crying and sobbing for no reason at all and with… Read full post »
According to the BBC, Paris liberation in
WWII was made 'whites only."
I'm sure I should be more surprised than I am. They say history is written by the victors. Apparently it's Photoshopped as well. Though in this case it was taking out actual people and putting in some with whiter faces. … Read full post »
My co-worker is trying to speak.
"If you look over here--"
Actually, she can speak. She speaks just fine. Not too fast, not too slow, no mumbling of any kind. She has the process of making words come out of her mouth down to… Read full post »
Where's the article on
busy dads learning how to balance family and faith?
Oh, right, only women are expected to do everything and be utterly
crushed with guilt when we can't.

I am white, English-speaking, and can pass for straight. Which means that in my neck of the woods I enjoy a great deal of privilege. My neck of the woods being where white, English-speaking, straight people are considered the norm. My neck of the woods is also not exactly a woods.… Read full post »
