I don't understand where the poster is coming from. Like did the person who made her mad say he/she has Asperger's but the poster doesn't believe him/her and thinks that person is just making an excuse? That said, after the Readercon debacle, it's a change from thinking when someone does something socially unacceptable to jump on the "maybe he/she has Asperger's" thinking.

I've never been a sister wife, or a wife, obviously, but I've grown up among friends and relatives whose father had multiple wives. I've never seen it as a happy thing. That said, all of the husbands were deceitful and having an affair on the first wife before dropping the bomb and either revealing to the first wife that they want to marry this other woman and have her be his second wife or that they already married and hey, here's my second wife, first wife! So I view this postcard with a great sense of sadness... For some reason I'm completely okay with polygamous/open marriages or relationships. I suppose because from what I've seen and heard, those are usually agreed upon by both/all parties and open from the get-go or have to be for everybody's safety whereas the religious polygamy I've heard of growing up just seems full of lies and manipulations.

Awesome. Females can save the world, too. As I ranted once on Facebook, it annoys me that some people think females automatically know how to count calories, etc. I don't know and I don't want to. I know I will irritate myself to no end by not really being able to measure volumes of food I think that weren't pre-packaged. Some restaurants put calories on their menus. Other don't. My mom cooks meals here and like fuck I'm going to take out a measuring cup and measure how much a piece of chicken or some other dish masses on my plate. By not being able to know for sure will mess with my mind. Not to mention that counting calories seems mentally exhausting. I do a lot of mindless eating when I'm bored or reading a book or watching a movie/TV show but I feel like counting calories would further distract me from what I'm doing besides eating and make it further for me to enjoy the senses of the food I'm eating without being too mental in my head, counting Pringles or something. I miss Pringles.

Yay for them for surviving their father's death and becoming sober! It is a little sad that job applications don't really take into personal achievements (this reminds me of college applications where the essay is a great place for that), but I hope the poster is able to find a way to meld the two.

That's just a crappy thing to do, though can dogs even be vegan? If dogs can't, then I suppose the person with the lunch meat isn't such a crappy person, if in the long run being vegan will hurt the dog. Still, going behind the neighbor's back is rude. Huh, well, according to this article, dogs and cats can have a vegetarian and vegan diet. I thought they were carnivores, not omnivores. However, I feel like restricting an animal who can't consent to that kind of diet could be...well...I don't know...mean? I mean, at least with humans when babies grow up and become teenagers/adults and buy their own food (most of them, anyway), they have the option of trying foods outside of the culture and lifestyle their parents bought them up with.

A little too extreme, I think... I think the child abuse hotline should have been ringing off the hook when the first episode of Toddlers and Tiaras aired and when the show continued. Never seen an entire show but just seeing commercials made me grimace.

I know someone who can relate to this postcard. My experience and with other friends have always children in religious households or societies being agnostic or atheist. College was the first time I ever met someone who came from an agnostic/atheist household and became religious. It was hard for me to wrap my head around initially, and I feel bad for anybody who can't be open about their religious beliefs or lack of with their familiy. (Yes, including me.)

For a positive view. Not from others - gah - but from the parent.

Apples are exotic and overpriced produce? Looks like dollars on the sign. I can't see if it's kilos or pounds, though, seeing as how other countries also use the name "dollars" as their currency.

Matt doesn't care. :-)

Thank you. :) I was really compartmentalizing about the fight earlier but I think it's resolved for real now. (The depression's still lingering, when does it ever not, but I took a shower. Yay.)

Neat! I was doubtful of my memory!

I don't recall you mentioning Asperger's during the RTA exchange a few summers ago... Is my memory bad again?

I didn't. I was misdiagnosed with BPD at the time.

Ah, okay! I'm glad you got the right diagnosis!
