Well, some people just refuse to hear the truth.

A follow-up from my blog post yesterday where I took on yet another radical feminist who insists that all BDSM is abuse, regardless of consent or not. Apparently, the blogger doesn’t like hearing the truth, that the examples they used in their blog were completely unrealistic and unrepresentative of the majority of people who practice … Read More

Yet another one where I take on radical feminists’ views about BDSM.

Oh, look. Someone on the Interwebz is having a butthurt cow about consensual BDSM practices. It’s an older article, but one I was only pointed toward just today. *sigh*¬†http://liberationcollective.wordpress.com/2013/01/27/bdsm-is-violence-against-women Here’s my response to them, because I seriously doubt they’ll let my comment¬†stand, because, idunno, LOGIC HURTZ. *Grrrr.* … Read More

Consensual non-consent, rape play, and stay the hell out of my bedroom.

Cara Sutra has THE best blog I’ve ever read about summarizing CNC (consensual non-consent play, AKA rape play) in BDSM. DEFINITELY a must-read. You can take my rape fantasy when you non-consensually prise it from my kink dependent mind. The point being many of us in BDSM ENJOY this kind of play. Speaking to the … Read More

Warning: Driver’s License Ranty-Pants Blant

It is, no shit, easier to obtain a concealed carry permit in Florida than to renew your driver’s license, if you don’t have a passport and haven’t renewed your license since 2010. Guess what I had to do today? Guess what I thought would be a simple errand lasting less than an hour, that turned … Read More

Fargo Episode 1 – my blant.

*Spoiler Alert* You have been warned thusly, and so begins my blant (blog+rant). It’s taken me a week to process how I feel about episode one of Fargo (on FX, episode two is on tonight). Yes, I realize it’s not supposed to be a reboot of the movie. However. … Read More

Dear Schick: Screw you, you clueless twits.

Dear makers of Schick Quattro for Women, For some reason, you seem to think that the planet’s women are either richer than Scrooge McDuck, or pre-pubescent teenaged girls who don’t care about function over form. For the record, I neither go around sniffing the handles of my razors, nor am I a petite, eight-fingered monkey–which, … Read More

o_O Uh, say what?

Apparently, there is growing (and well-deserved) outrage over a man who appears to have been a fake sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela’s public memorial. Wow. Just…wow. The reports state the man is also receiving treatment for schizophrenia. If he’s mentally ill…well, okay, that doesn’t excuse what he did, but it begs the question… … Read More

Why I hate bullies.

So the events of the past 24 hours have been fun. LOL (“I do not think that word means what you think it means.” LOL) Let me start by saying that one of the parties is now claiming they had nothing to do with this whole scenario. That they’ve tried repeatedly to get in touch … Read More

Oh, goodie. I now have a cyberstalker.

So apparently I’ve “made” it since I’ve pissed off a couple of spammers. (EDIT: I’ve added a second message they’ve sent me.) What’s even stupider? I HAD been planning on letting it die down now that we had notified our members. But now that I’m getting email threats, including (see below) a threat to burn … Read More

WARNING: Authors, blurbs can kill…your sales!

I offer this blog post up as a cautionary tale to authors. Especially to self-published authors who don’t have a publisher to tell them, “Um, NO, this is NOT a good idea.” I had to unfriend a fellow author on Facebook tonight. The reason? They were posting in multiple groups a blurb for their book. … Read More

Fuck you, Stephen King.

Dear Stephen King, Fuck you. Yes, you read that right. Fuck. You. You have apparently decided only you know what’s best for your readers, so you’ve decided to indefinitely put off releasing an e-book version of Joyland. Who gives a shit if we really WANT the e-book version, you make more than enough money you … Read More

O.M.F.G.L.M.F.A.O!! Deranged Sorority Letter LOLZ

You know…I’m hard to make outright laugh so hard I’m brought to tears by something I read. I’m a tough audience. I really am. However… I am currently sitting here with tears streaming down my face from laughter. And it’s not just the letter itself, it’s the comments that followed it that are Funny. As. … Read More

Just…be NICE!

I want to state up front this is NOT a “review rant.” This is not a rant about reviewers or reviews. At all. This is a rant about authors (one particular one, in this case) behaving badly. It’s about something that makes me sit back and shake my damn head over how fracking STUPID a … Read More

Monday Musing: Nothing as humiliating as a new swimsuit search.

So yesterday I had that most humiliating of experiences, one that ranks right up there with annual pap smears, prostate exams, and having a child under the age of four teach you how to use technology. Yes, I had to go shopping for a new bathing suit. When I went to put my nearly two-year-old … Read More

Guest blog: Open Your Mind Before Your Mouth

I’m blogging today over at the “When One Is Not Enough” menage authors blog. Topic? I’m taking on a pinhead ROMANCE AUTHOR who equated BDSM with “setting back the women’s movement.” (Oh no she did-uhnt!) Oh, yes she did, and I take her to task for it. http://menageromance.blogspot.com/2012/05/open-your-mind-before-your-mouth.html
