Excuse Me for Raining on Your “Life Sucks” Parade

Something that’s kinda getting to me, lately, is the incessant need to be so damn unique.

I’m not talking about the “be your own person” people, or the folks who don’t like labels, or even those who are always telling us not to shoehorn them into our ideal. Their fanatics drive me crazy, but some of the points made by non-fanatics make sense and are grounded in reality.

No, it’s the “We’re not even remotely the same, so you can’t possibly know what I’m going through, and any attempt on your part to empathize is offensive” crowd that’s bumming me out, right now.

They’re in every age group, every race and every nationality. Every gender, class and¬†group of people with similar sexuality persuasions has a few. And their battle cries are so similar, if you took out any reference to their particular group, you’d be sure they were all fighting for the same thing.¬† Read more…

I’m having a particularly difficult time with some things going on, right now. It’s not so much the events themselves, though parts of each of them (there are a few that are separate and affect different parts of my life) are sad, and awkward, and bewildering. It’s more the way the events came about, and the clusterfuck that has been left in their wake.

I’ve been in a straight panic since some time last week. I got a few moments of respite when I buried my head in intoxication for the weekend, but the moment sobriety returned, so did the fear. I haven’t been afraid like this in … years? Read more…

My Undies and Me

February 5th, 2012 1 comment

I’ve worn so many different types of underwear. I mean, most women have. There are so many different types of underwear for women to wear! From thongs to boy shorts, lace to cotton, wild colors to plain white. Underwear is one place a woman may have too many choices.

When I was little, I had She-Ra, Barbie and Smurfs on my underwear. Flowers and frogs and Raggedy Ann. They were just normal little girl underwear with the kinky elastic around the waist and thighs.

In my teen years, my mom refused to buy me anything cute. For a long time, I couldn’t even talk her into French cut, and granny panties are annoying! And did nothing whatever to keep me from taking them off. Eventually, my ex started buying me nicer underthings. My mother was quite mortified when she found a pair of white satin panties made with a hole in the ass. Read more…
