Drew's 10 Commandments
You can practice any religion or non-religion that you want. Try to not be a dick about commandment #1 or any of the other commandments. Just don’t be a dick, okay? You don’t have to follow any other religion’s laws or even the laws of your own religion, unless you want to. Workplaces should respect your religion or lack of religion and not discriminate against a person for...
amandapalmer: “It seems to me, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare,” Akin said, referring to conception following a rape. “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. But let’s assume that maybe that didn’t work or something, I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be of the rapist, and not attacking...

christinadear: Story time! When I was in high school I was riding the bus because I was a loser and I didn’t have my license yet. I think I was sixteen. Anyway, this guy who was about a year younger than me, turns around, rather suddenly in his seat, looks me dead in the eyes, and says, “You’ve got to be the… Yes boys have called me fat. But I don’t want to date boys… but...

The Cats, They Hear Me Calling.
So I’ve been having trouble sleeping. For about a year and half or so my ability to sleep has not been great. A lot has been on my mind, and it’s really hard to quiet your brain enough to sleep with a hundred thoughts running around in it. So last night as I was trying to force myself to sleep, I hallucinated something. At the time it was vividly real, but after the fact it’s...

"But it's got cartilage and sinew in it."
Lately people have been trying to shock me with the “revelation” that some ground beef has liquified cartilage and sinew in it. This, quite frankly, doesn’t bug me. I’ve long ago accepted the idea that eating meat wasn’t necessarily the only path to go down, but if we do consume the flesh of animals we should consume and make use of as many parts of that animal as...
“It was not so long ago that her words would have reassured him, helped him to fully understand the situation. But after the events of the last year and a half she seemed to be speaking softly from across a room. Her words had no purchase over his heart anymore and she could not sway him. This made his pain worse and forced him to question everything up until this point. ‘Why...
