You are aware his name isn't actually Theon Greyjoy, right?

Re: “Everything as Fuck

Another privileged white guy reflects on how juvenile society permits him to be in the social sandbox while the less fortunate have to grow the fuck up and know it's nothing profound or expected, they have to do it to survive. Keep taking those baby steps, Ian!

Re: “Savage Love

Why would NITC's wife's concern for being disowned by her mother HAVE to be an issue of money, Dan? That's a fucked up assumption. Maybe she loves her mother and enjoys having her in her life and is closeted for the reasons that most people are closeted from their parents: fear of rejection. Obviously she loves her mother enough to give her plenty of access to their home. She may be a snooping bitch, but most likely she's a concerned mother trying to look out for her daughter's heart. It's her daughter that has kept her in the dark (and insists on continuing to do so) and therefore it's NITC's wife that is creating the issue. Her mother is conservative and has no concept of a married couple sharing their bed with a third person...the natural assumption would be that the husband is cheating and her natural instinct would be to protect her daughter. Yet you immediately jump all over the woman and insist that she deserves to be chucked out of her daughter's life and the only possible reason why she hasn't been is money. You then suggest shock tactics to introduce the idea of her daughter being in a sexual three-way. Really fucked up assumptions and really bad advice, Dan. I have a lot of respect for you and your contributions to the world, but you need to be called on this.

Re: “Savage Love

In regard to your response to OVER, Dan, I think his panic is in regard to his romantic and sexual life, not his achievements. And the way you tell it almost seems to suggest that gay men are shallow before middle-age, and achievements in life are the result of aging and losing one's immaturity and sex appeal (or shallowness.)

Re: “Savage Love

I thin, Dan, that you missed the point of SOCI's problem, and that is that his boyfriend was conducting these acts of "cyber infidelity" (an extreme term, agreed) secretly. Secret accounts suggest that his boyfriend was not nelly flirting with guys he could have IRL, but that he was flirting with the idea of arranging an encounter IRL, without the knowledge of his partner. Which is only a step away from infidelity and then not knowing your partner's sexual activities, whether they're safe or not. That he was caught before an actual encounter took place and therefore could pass all this off as innocent is bogus, and he's likely to create new accounts and be more careful to hide his activities. Also, that he expressed shame once he'd been found out is a huge red flag: he felt he did something wrong and was probably a step away from doing something wrong, and this behavior is not likely to end now that he's been caught. He'll likely be resentful of the snooping and daydreaming more often of NSA relations. I think SOCI should examine his own reaction, the snooping and the claim of his partner's "infidelity," but he should also seriously consider DTMFA.

Re: “LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Well swell, guys, glad you appreciated by obnoxious holier-than-thou nerdism! How does one claim the tickets? And, more importantly, since I'm temporarily and indefinitely living in Kansas City, can I can I gift them to someone?
