About Me: Neither liberal nor conservative, I am simply one who uses logic to punch holes in badly reasoned arguments.
You may also refer to me as "the globally published Tricky" if you wish.
...just don't take me too seriously.

I'm just imagining LW freaking out about some normal-looking blonde ladies in v-neck shirts with normal-to-large breasts and it's making me laugh so hard.

So is everyone who has facebook photos with some cleavage showing a pitiable sIut too?

Hold on what now is this about feeling sorry for "slutty" women? Who the hell do you think you are to get to decide whether or not these women want you feeling sorry for them? Adults get to make their more »

If you think this was okay and that blackface isn't racist/ignorance is different than "real" racism/using bronzer as opposed whatever you think "real" blackface is...you should do some reading about more »

Comment on: Pit bull adoptions increase as suburbanites consider a dog they previously ignored - News Local Massachusetts - Boston.com
Posted 10/07/2013 08:50:19 EDT
Commenters don't like to remember that the last big story about a dog being put down for harming humans was a little hound mix who seriously injured a toddler and also bit his owner's family members. more »

Your comment exposes your ignorance of the breed and your unwillingness to learn about the breed. You DO see pit bulls as guide dogs, as service dogs, the same as any other breed. There are plenty of more »

I guess I just haven't had enough deleted comments to know. Now I feel lame and boring!
Posted 09/24/2013 04:39:18 EDT
Sorry- I knew why it was deleted, I was confused because it was (and still is) showing in my browser. Which is weird.
Posted 09/24/2013 04:12:09 EDT
Sally if that was directed at my apology, I don't know what your deal is that you can never understand "people say things when they're upset that they don't necessarily mean". Maybe you've never done more »

On my browser, it was still showing as there. Hence the confusion as to the poofing references. Anyhoo, I sure do think it's time for me to go. As stated in the comments of the poof-post, I did not at more »

Dude if you read my comment, I'm clearly repentant. Not that I was the one cheating in the first place. I'm just honestly pretty upset to find that people who are still supposedly "friends" of mine co more »

I honest to god was just typing that out of frustration and sadness at seeing the flood of "this is the worst thing you can ever do" and didn't expect it to pass the word filter at all. Wow.
Posted 09/24/2013 02:42:16 EDT
Dimmy, I know of that situation happening as well. It's just not frequent enough to make sense to mention in a comment advising her against continuing the relationship, and a lot of the time those rel more »

Dear LW: I will not shame you, because I know how this is from experience. I'm assuming you're a little older than I was when I made this particular mistake, but I get how it happens. It's a number of more »

Control is essential. It's definitely noteworthy that most "pit bull attacks" are dogs that either escaped from a yard or were roaming free, rather than dogs that were leashed properly etc.
Posted 09/17/2013 10:13:07 EDT
Marv, that is 100% BS propaganda. Yet again, it's the way they are TRAINED that makes them "bad", not ANY natural inclinations. Additionally, "pit bull" has become a catchall for any dog with a squari more »

You do realize that many of us who own pit bulls DO have to carry extra insurance, if we can get it at ALL, on our homes, right?
Posted 09/17/2013 09:53:45 EDT
PS: They DON'T have locking jaws/extra biting power/etc. That is a fallacy perpetuated by...yet again...mainstream media and anti-pitbull people. ANY large dog can hurt you just as badly as a pitbull, more »
