So... are any of us (besides me) old enough and poor enough that our parents had sex where we could hear them? Because, honestly, I never had any interest in pornography nor did my husband whose parents were much younger than mine. It's only the unknown or forbidden that captures our attention. If h...

Violence is violence and rape is rape. Male pornography and prostitution emboldens the slavers among us and legitimizes their actions. all of that said, I am sorry that you felt so ashamed and alone. I wish you love and happiness and peace.

Radfem and the misfires

Hello, back, needed to think If your only definition of a feminist is a reproductively viable cis-gender woman, then I made a mistake. I do get the "I get all the badges" from some transgender folks, but that's not everyone. I'm not reproductively viable. Haven't been for decades. I was raised in a ...

Topic: How do we teach the baby puppy boys?

So, it’s true that I don’t have kids of my own. I do have five nephews and a niece. I use the “baby puppyâ€￾ term as an endearment and also to remind myself that I can’t hold a pre-teen to the same rigorous standard as I would an adult.

Not all young children are “baby puppiesâ€￾. Many have enough emotional intelligence to be treated as adults. It’s a sort of shortcut which I didn’t explain at all in my previous post and I’m not sure I’m explaining well now.

Anyway, I love kids. I can’t have any myself but I am lucky enough to get plenty of chances to support them and teach them and tell them stories and run around conventions with them. I get to take them to places where they can learn to do things they want to do.

My post was about a pre-teen human who has otherwise been kind and courteous but was acting inappropriately. I learned later that he’d suffered a TBI and he was acting appropriately the next time I saw him.

I agree with you that we don't do as well connecting our children with their elders as we used to. But. in this particular case, the child in question lived with his grandmother in the family home until her death.

Anyway, I'm sorry that my question was poorly framed. I have a lot to learn!

Thank you for your welcome, October! It's been a wild week for me. Women I've known for years have been pulling me aside to have conversations about white male privilege. These are women who are in powerful households who have very little to gain from a change in circumstances. It's so nice to have ...

The problem solved itself! I really like what I'm seeing from the younger boy puppies in our part of the world. Thanks, everybody.

This strip is pretty meta, IMHO. We are all the heroes of our own stories. This is a pretty nuanced take on the coopting of the revolution by the mainstream media.

Thank you. So "Puppy, put a shirt on please" should be okay, yes?

How do we teach the baby puppy boys?

So, I'm a pet sitter in real life. I see the girl puppies and kittens teach the boys pretty much right from birth to respect "No" as an answer. I had a pretty troubling experience today where a baby puppy boy engaged in some non-contact attention seeking behavior. He's a good person but he just didn...

Loving it here especially at the moment, when I'm being drowned by boys IRL. Thanks for keeping this space safe.

Wait a sec - buying sex isn't illegal in all 50 states in the US ? Only selling sex? Sorry to be stupid about this. I can probably help fix this where I live right now. Wow - I have a lot to learn.

Such a great topic and nice to reflect on. I grew up in a relatively progressive household in the '60s. The neighborhood was traditional and patriarchal in the extreme, but both my parents worked and they shared household chores pretty evenly. My parents thought that I could be anything, but should ...
