Protesting corporate mind control

Note I didn't send to the corporate owners of the place I
work for, for fear of reprisal. Sad, really sad.

I believe this page was blocked in error because:
Dan Savage is an advice columnist. The content of his columns includes, granted, fetishism, note 'includes', as opposed to 'solely consists of how-to's'. Dan Savage's advice is sane and safety oriented. You should be glad that students would be looking up how-to do things safely, both in terms of the things they do and with whom. I can assure you that it would be unlikely for students to be sitting masturbating over Dan Savage's sane advice. Dan tells it like it is:

“With all due respect, Glen, fuck your complex underlying factors--and don’t change the subject. I wanna talk about gay men who infect other gay men with HIV. Like a lot of HIV-positive guys, you would no doubt prefer to discuss HIV-negative gay men who take foolish risks... HIV infection rates among gay men continue to rise despite the …

The downside of digital skins

Yuck. Skins kill the look and feel of whatever they are applied to.
Homogenizes. Prevents looking at the totality of the item, cutting out
everything the skin doesn't recognize because it hasn't been included
in the formula. Imagination and creativity of creator killed. If the
idea is to cut out the vile designs, the too-full pages, the attention
grabbing by the irrelevant, then I suggest we take the hint and
attention grab only the relevant and do it the hell beautifully. If
'Homogenize' was a billboard who would do it? I want a list, damn it,
some stats. Get onto it.

Portrait of a friend's dogs, by Helen Timm

From left to right: Zambo, Cuzco and Tintin. I saw Zambo and Cuzco in Napier in December. I swear Zambo recognized me, although it has been six or seven years. I cried. Helen has gone, but in a way her soul lives on in her dogs and in her friends and in her house, that is still as it was when she died last year.

Meme tagging: Books

1. Estimate the total number of books you’ve owned in your life.

I’d say there are roughly 6000 books lurking around the house. A trillion years ago I read Mills & Boons and when I gave them away finally there were 486 ~ and in those days you handed two books into a second-hand book store to get one. And then there was the discovery of Better Books, a credit card hell where the owner only gets second-hand books in that are on his discerning list, NOT just anything. And then there was the discovery of the safeness of ordering from Amazon. And the collection of uteral feminist books from Exclusive Books back when I was studying. Yip, I need a bigger house.

2. What’s the last book you bought? Can one operate in the singular when finding oneself in a book department?

I really only read the books on palmistry and feminism, the others I just put my eyes onto the words.

Straight talk about sexual relationships

Just because a guy wants to fuck you doesn't necessarily mean he likes you. If he says he loves you, it doesn't necessarily mean he likes you. If he marries you, it doesn't necessarily mean he likes you. If you are confused about how he feels about you, if the slightest doubt exists in your mind about whether or not he likes you ~ he doesn't like you. Older guys that come onto younger girls are too immature to attract mature (sorted) women. Or they are paedophiles. Guys who want to fuck models are into pre-pubesent boys (consider the similarity in body shape). Nobody tells young guys about the clit, you must. The only way to make sure you have the pick of good relationships is to make sure that you are funny, intelligent and warm ~ if someone wants something other than that they haven't worked out what is important yet, dump 'em. Men won't wear condoms unless you force them, can you? You have just as much right to express your sexuality AS YOU WANT TO as ev…

Loving advice for teens by Dan Savage

This advice from [Dan Savage] to the loveless is timeless, and so well put... Listen up, girls.

Your awkward/repulsive stage will pass. In the meantime, here's what you need to do: Worry less about getting your 15-year-old self laid and start thinking about getting your 18- or 20-year-old self laid. Join a gym and get yourself a body that girls will find irresistible; read so that you'll have something to say to girls (the best way to make girls think you're interesting is to actually be interesting); and get out of the house and do shit--political shit, sporty shit, arty shit--so that you'll meet different kinds of girls in different kinds of settings and become comfortable talking with them. Some more orders: Get a decent haircut and use deodorant and floss your teeth and take regular showers and wear clean clothes. Go online and read all about birth control and STDs, and learn enough about female anatomy that you'll be able to find a clitoris in the dark. Mastur…
