Michelle Obama and the Politics of Popularity
I'm looking forward to the Democratic Convention. Not because I'm a Democrat (although I am): I can't sit through political conventions, especially since they're little more than predetermined theater. No, I'm looking forward to it because it means once again, Michelle Obama gets the spotlight.
Panama's Thoughts: Michelle Obama totally rocked the DNC. Not much to say other than that.
Could You Date a Guy With Different Political Beliefs?
Now that the Democratic National Convention is happening, we're knee deep in the 2012 political race. And, as usual, it's super divisive. Besides the economy, the race is coming down to some pretty heated issues -- Planned Parenthood, abortion rights, the definitions of rape, health care, the very basis of whether or not the government has the right to say what you should and shouldn't do with your body. So I wonder, as the country becomes more and more divided along party lines, would you be able to date someone whose political beliefs diverged from yours?
Panama's Thoughts: Not only is this a vital question during election years, it always matters. I have no idea how James Carville and Mary Matalin have lasted so long. Point is, that's not normal. Don't try that at home.
What do you call a man in his late 40s who prefers women in their 60s?
Are there enough guys in their late 40s that prefer women in their 60s that we need a nickname for them? If so, use Wrinkle Wrangler.
Panama's Thoughts: Any time somebody uses the words Wrinkle Wrangler, you've kind of got to give that as much shine as possible.
I'm 18 and I'm not bad looking. I have pretty large boobs and am in pretty good shape. However, I ride horses so I get a lot of red marks on my ass and my vagina has long inner folds so its kinda not up to porn star standards. Does this make me a lot less attractive to guys during sex or in general?
I have never heard of such a thing, Horse Vagina, let's call it. Sure,
sitting long and hard on something can give the tushie some temporary
streaking red marks, but actually attributing labia formation to a
bronco? Are you saying that the chronic smooshing of your vagina lips
has caused permanent elongation? Hmm. That is, in all likelihood,
horseshit, my dear lady.
Panama's Thoughts: And the winner of funniest question and response this week, hands down, goes to Amit. Plus, Horse Vagina is totally the name of my next group in Rock Band!
Hi Cary, my boyfriend avoids places/gatherings where he knows his ex will be. I told him I could handle her but he jokes and says she won't be friendly with me, but I don't care. I admit it would be awkward, but why is he avoiding her when I am around?
1) He doesn't want to see her. Running into an ex is awkward, especially with a new girlfriend in tow.
2) He doesn't want to look like he's rubbing her nose in the fact that he has a new girlfriend.
3) He doesn't want to subject you to the awkwardness and potentially rude treatment from her.
Panama's Thoughts: Why anybody would not understand why somebody didn't want to run into their ex is beyond me. Hell, I still avoid my ex from daycare. What? The feelings were real back then.
I'm finding it a bit hard to believe that you managed to stay in a
loveless relationship for 6 years, and somehow you're only NOW starting
to not like him? (click link for more)
Panama's Thoughts: I got nothing more than what I said. How the hell do you stick JUST not stop liking somebody after 6 years of feeling no love for them? Yo no se.See you next week!!!
