Did you take the post down? His message doesn’t mean shit. He didn’t leave his lawyer’s info. Put the post back up and ask the dude for the cease and desist letter so you have copies for your records. I deal with C&D at work. This is empty threats.
I made the post private, so it is still there. I can make it public again, though. I also banned his IP from our Tumblr. And I agree—this guy is completely blowing smoke. Also, Iain Lee is my hero and I am dying laughing from his comments.
Some very traditional Jews still follow the no turning on electricity on the Sabbath. So you can use it but you can’t turn it off or on. I’m guessing this is a timer you can set so you don’t have to turn the oven off or on.
Ohhh. I see, I see. Well that makes sense and explains the “Sabbath” feature on the oven. Thank you for this info!
I love the word. I have it on a necklace. You shoul read the book “Cunt” by Ingia Muscio. Frankly, I think “whore” is about 10 times worse than cunt. I embrace it.
Well, see, it’s all about context. I don’t mind the word “cunt” in the reclaiming way that you are describing. I’m talking about people who use it to name-call, because they think it makes them sound “daring” or “scary” for using what has traditionally been a “taboo” word. In that context, I hate the word, because the person is brandishing it as a weapon and trying to use it to further their own ends above all else.

Do not let these thing hurt you babe. And you have ruined nothing by being who you are. If that really was the case (and I doubt it it is) Fuck those losers! You are one of us now babe and that’s how we role. (Spelling intended.)
<3 <3 Thank you, hon.

*hugs you* Aww I’m sure nothing is your fault. If your neighbors don’t think your family is worthy, then it’s their loss!
Thank you, Karen! I just have this tendency to blame myself for anything that I look back on in my younger years that is a normal social opportunity my parents could have/should have had, but ended up being isolated because of me/my Asperger’s. And these neighbors do still give my parents Christmas gifts (and we them), so I don’t know why we’re excluded from the pool party. It’s weird.

I guess I didn’t realize your dad was an Aspie, too. Maybe he feels really left out about Italy and doeesn’t like to be reminded.
He’s not officially diagnosed, but he (and we) believe he definitely is, for many reasons. I don’t know about feeling left out…he doesn’t like to travel and probably would have been miserable on most of the trip, cause of the heat and all. We did Skype with him several times while we were away, so we did get to see each other and (hopefully) help him feel less lonely. But yeah. It’s like he was a different person on Skype, and now we’re having these clashes and blergh. I’ll just be glad to be back in my apartment on Friday.
Knock it off. You’re awesome and inspirational.
Aww…thanks, Didi. I’m just having one of those days where it’s like, “Self-doubt, self-flagellation, self-doubt, self-flagellation, GRAAAR go away!” So I really appreciate your saying that. :)
Amy, buy this dress when you can it is totally you. Wear it as a formal but get it.
Didi, I so wish I had $3,000 lying around (which is how much this dress is), but…yeah. Haha. Hey, if someone wants to give me 3 Gs to buy it, that’s fine…but no way in heck am I gonna be able to afford it (without selling off a body part) anytime soon.
foreverdiomira replied to your post: Well, it was six years ago today that I lost my virginity.
Amy, I’ve read this every year you’ve posted it. I have to say you are on a much better state than you’ve been in postings prior. Sex isn’t love and love isn’t sex. I’ve down right hate fucked before. What happened with him had little to do with you and more to do with his…
<3 Thank you, Didi. I really do feel like I have gotten better over the years. And you are right…sex and love not mutually exclusive. I guess it was just hard in this case because I had waited to have sex until I really felt ready, and until I was truly sure I’d found the right person. It just hurts to have been so completely wrong.
