6 Comments

Name: Sarah D. : Question: Hi there, I’m female, big city urban area, never married, well-connected, overweight but losing it, active, interesting, dog owner, family person, and getting better all the time. I was in a three-year relationship until four months ago (ended in a stressed fizzle of disappointment followed by complete silent treatment from […]

Because F*ck Him, That’s Why

May 2nd, 2017

Do I strike you as someone who weeps at insignificant things? Exactly. That’s how wrecked and self-conscious and inadequate I felt. Intensifying those feelings are my tours of Instagram looking for motivational work-out clips. I look at the bodies on those women then stand in front of my mirror naked and sigh. Yes, I see […]

A Matchmaker And a Misogynist Walk Into a Bar…

April 16th, 2017

0 Comments

Their matchmaking business sounds like it exclusively caters to the male gaze, matching up rich men with beautiful women not for a relationship but for status. That’s what they’re selling, I think.  Not love. Not companionship. Certainly not marriage. (There’s a reason why there’s no Testimonials page on their website, folks.)  What the Spindels excel […]

First, I was embarrassed. Was Babyface being sarcastic when he told me I looked nice? Did I actually look ridiculous? Was I trying too hard? Should I wear looser clothes? Is it because I wear make-up that he thinks I’m looking for that kind of attention? All my worries boiled down to one premise: that […]

I Don’t Think Feminism Means What You Think It Means

March 13th, 2017

This gif never gets old Here’s a nifty comment from this post that I thought you’d all appreciate. Feminism is about competing with men and denigrating the feminine characteristics that make a woman a Lady. Thus, feminists try to look like men, accentuating the vulgar, crude, ugly, undesirable traits that make them less appealing to […]

Stop Letting Strange Men Talk Dirty To You

January 23rd, 2017

If there’s one thing I’ve noticed in my 10+ years as a business owner, it’s that I get a hell of a lot less push back when I use the masculine (or assumed masculine) spellings of my name. (Chris, Christan.)  Through out my life I have been addressed as Christian. Even when I fill out […]

Forever Young

Welp, it’s that time again. In less than twenty-four hours I will turn forty-eight. Yikes. Forty-eight. Yeah, yeah. Age is just a number and all that, but still. For the first time in many years, I skipped a period this month. No, I’m not pregnant.  I’m like 99% sure it’s perimenopause.  I mean, yeah, all […]

Note: I previously wrote this for another website right after my father died. I’ve never published it here. I have a playlist on my phone labeled “Story of My Life.” Included on this list are songs that I’ve always found to encapsulate various tipping points in my life. One of these songs is “Being Alive” […]

So, here’s a follow up article on that Bumble post from a few days ago.   Click the link up top to see the full exchange. Bumble did not misrepresent Connor when they called out his misogyny. But this message exchange proves that Bumble, well, wasn’t being  totally honest when they wrote that blog post […]
