On Ask Polly: Will Our Class Differences Tear Us Apart?

As someone with a privileged upbringing but a dysfunctional family, thank you. I personally decided to be kinder to myself and recognise that while helpful, wealth isn't everything, and it's OK to have feelings (I'm sensitive too, Polly!)

Luckily, that realisation allowed me to develop a much stronger empathy for people with backgrounds different than mine - an empathy I'd tried to look for with structural analyses, but only actually found after moving on from them.

On Ask Polly: Should I Have This Baby?

I wish some time was spent discussing what it would mean for the baby to be raised in these circumstances. I don't think there's anything wrong with the LW as a person, but given how much this is about him, I hope she has the right priorities. I hope the LW finds it in herself to make the best decision for everyone (potentially) involved.

On Welcome To Berlin, Now Go Home

@saythatscool Considering Mr. Rogers is a half-German like me, he'd probably tell you to fuck right off. You are probably North American and raised on Hollywood, so I'll let you know there's been quite a bit going on in Europe since the 1930s.

On G-Spot Real, Real Small

I'd love to jump on the "men are bad at teh sex" bandwagon but truth is I can't even find my own. No excuses for the clit, though.
