Venting- Don't forward me an email that you sent to someone else complaining about the process they are using for community organizing, and telling me that you just want for me to "be aware of all the layers involved." This is the second time this week someone has either tried to manipulate me or pump me for information, and I'm already tired of it. If you have a better idea, put it out there and better yet, roll up your sleeves and go to work. We don't need armchair quarterbacks. Be straightforward. Quit talking about integrity *while you're being so shady.*

I feel terrible saying this but well, this is a confession site. So my sister who has long struggled with mental health and physical health problems has utilized a lot of alternative practitioners over the years, which I totally get because if you're desperate to get well you'll try anything. I mean, I would. So she visits mystics and psychics and reiki experts and energy workers and all these different people, and also wants me to try them out. Well my initital impression of these people when I meet them is that none of them seemed healthy. They were all overweight, breathing heavily, talking about their creaky knees and bad shoulders and backs. Seriously all the ones I met had these major ailments. And then they charge my sister a heck of alot of money for their "healings". Kinda makes you wonder. I don't want to take her hope away but they all seem like charlatans.

In response to a confession. I think you've posted about your brother being an asshole to your son, so in that case I'd stay at your current job. Can the 2 of you move out and find a roommate?

DH asked me the other day what I would like my name to be if I were a guy. I had never thought about it before, but if I could choose, I'd pick a name like Jonas or Elias. Something old and classic and not preppy. Definitely not a name ending in --ayden or --ayson. My mom said if I had been a boy, my name would have been Brandon and I HATE that name. DH said if he could choose a woman's name, he'd pick "something that doesn't sound ditzy". LOL.

My DH was in the Army. Every Veteran's Day he thinks everyone should treat him like royalty. The thing is he only joined the Army because no college accepted him after he goofed off in high school so much. His parents pretty much gave him an ultimatum. He joined for 2 years. The bare minimum. The furthest from home he went was Georgia. He never even had the threat of seeing combat. He spent weekends getting drunk at bars and strip clubs. After his two years, he did join the Nat'l Guard (while going to college for free on the GI Bill). But they suggested that he leave because he couldn't actually be bothered to show up half the time, or he'd show up hours late. But he thinks everyone should treat him like he stormed Normandy, like he is the sole reason we weren't taken over by Russia. I respect those who served, but don't think he is quite on the same level as most of our veterans. Oh, and he's 50 now, so not like this was just yesterday.

In response to a confession. I think I know exactly how you feel. I was able to quit my job to be an indie author, and holy shit... some people I know have not responded kindly. I absolutely think it's jealousy. I've been called lazy, and told that it's awful that my dh works full time while I "sit at home all day." People suck, sometimes. Congrats on your YouTube channel! I think that's cool as hell. Good for you!

I'm glad people with large platforms, like actors, are coming forward with their stories of sexual assault. It makes it more acceptable for others to speak up, too. Not just for women, but also for men and boys, who, for some fucked up reason, are seen as not being masculine for being assaulted. We've normalized predatory behavior and turned victims into villains for so long; the more people talk about it, and call these sick fucks out, the less normal it will become. It's sad, but it's also amazing to see this shift happening. Keep talking about it. You never know who you're helping by telling your story. #metoo

In response to a confession. I don't think anyone is saying that ALL Catholic priests are bad, but when you look at the Catholic church as an institution, it's one of the largest proponents of violence on the planet. It has written protocols in place specifically for silencing victims of molestation within the institution. And it's a shame, because so many people truly are drawn to Catholicism because they find peace and comfort through Christ, but are met with an institution that is evil on a fundamental level.

OP of Catholic funeral post. I also don't think all priests are bad. But unfortunately a hefty portion are and the traditions and misogyny in the church are not reflecting a change. So I am personally very creeped out in the Catholic church. That is sad for the good people involved in the church that many people feel this way. Again, nothing in my original post said all priests are bad. But boy, a lot of them sure are.

In response to a confession. I don't mean to be rude, but you can ever so gently fuck off with this nonsense. Are you new to this planet? Do you understand the amount of fear and shame that victims of sexual assault feel? I'm going to guess you don't, based on your post. In many cases, the victim isn't taken seriously, regardless of time. And why is this only for adults? Why not shame everyone equally?
