But it seems that he targeted vulnerable women, either in terms of being in financial need or needing legal assistance after being victims of domestic violence. I don't think that's normal "hey you're cute and I know this is unethical but we should date" - that seems to be very real targeting and taking advantage of… » 8/09/14 12:40am 8/09/14 12:40am

Off topic a bit, but I have a question that I'm hoping you (or anyone else reading) may be able to answer, because I can't find any information about it online. I was under the impression from a former psychology professor that gender dysphoria does not apply to all individuals who identify as trans* - that rather it… » 8/01/14 3:17pm 8/01/14 3:17pm

I love PLL, which is actually considered rather progressive itself in how it deals with Emily's storyline (at least by AfterEllen, which covers it weekly!) - no shame.

Would that surrogate have any legal responsibility to care for the child? That kind of thing is… » 7/08/14 2:09pm 7/08/14 2:09pm

I went through a period where I met a lot of people from myspace and livejournal. I always met them with friends or in public places however, and thank goodness for that. One time I met a guy at a local coffee shop with my friend, he was a little odd but seemed harmless and so we went to his house to hang out for a… » 6/27/14 9:46pm 6/27/14 9:46pm

I'm not from the Midwest (CT, actually) and I didn't know that the Midwest has some kind of higher appreciation of Disney movies, but for me Disney movies are comforting - reminiscent of my childhood. Many of the older films are legitimately good films, and my boyfriend (who loves Disney and Disney songs) and I both… » 6/05/14 3:44pm 6/05/14 3:44pm
