I deleted my Facebook account today. It was too stressful... yet I kept opening the app, constantly, almost on autopilot. I think it's for the better, at least for me. Do you still use Facebook?

If not i'd lose contact with a lot of people

I only kept it for as long as I did for that reason. But everything else I saw was just so upsetting. Even after I left those political groups, I saw sponsored ads that upset me. Do you see these things too?

I was part of so many political groups, I was feeling like there was no escape. I think a lot of us in the US can agree that things are very tense right now. I was getting notifications all the time, and none of it was good or made me feel good. I realized I wasn't getting anything out of it other than anxiety.

There's a boy named Carol. He's made fun of throughout high school because of his weird name, and so he's become very shy. But he has a crush on a girl and works up the courage to ask her out. She says yes, and he's so happy. After years of dating, he works up the courage to ask her to marry him. She says yes, and he's so happy. When their first child is born, a girl, he lets the wife name her, because he still feels so lucky and fortunate just to be with her. The wife names the baby "Love". Love grows up and now she starts to be made fun of because of her weird name. She comes home from school one day screaming at her dad, asking why he gave her such a stupid name. He takes blame, wanting to protect his wife, and apologizes. Love says he ruined her life. She shoots him and runs away. Finally the wife comes home, sees Carol lying on the ground, screams and runs to him. "Carol! What happened?!" He beckons her to come closer, and with his dying breath he whispers in her ear: "Shot through the heart. And you're to blame. Darling you gave Love a bad name."

If you could breed two animals together to defy the laws of nature, what new animal would you create?

A porcupine crossed with an armadillo. It would basically be indestructible and could double as a weapon if you attached it to a chain πŸ˜‰

That was a really long set up for a so-so joke.

If you had a choice, what would you dream about tonight?

Having my mom back. We weren't close at all, she didn't even raise me. BUT I've now come to realize that if things had been different for her, she would've been a great mom. I want to dream about her.

Do your relatives get angry at you whenever you don't do things their way? Controlling relatives.

I don't have any relatives any more, but my aunt was like that. I had to season my own personal plate of food the way she likes hers.... No pepper allowed. And I love pepper 😒

What is something you are certain you will never experience?

What does the younger you think about the older you?

I'm pretty cool because I have a car, but I am also lame because I no longer dye my hair funky colors

What has been keeping you from giving up?

My clients, my dog and the fact that I swore I wouldn't give up like my parents did.

"Men get sexually assaulted, men get abused, men have toxic gender stereotypes that they are expected to live up to. This is a problem, and I am more than willing to have discussions about this, and talk about what can be done to change these things if you bring it up as its own topic. However, if you bring these things up as an attempt to override discussions about women, I will not listen to you. If you really cared about men's issues, you'd bring it up at other times, not only when we're discussing women's issues. That's not you caring about men's issues. That's you not wanting to talk about women's issues because you want everything to be about men." Amirite?

I recently attended a two day workshop about male victims of domestic violence. It was very enlightening. One of the topics that came up is that male victims of DV are often brought to attention just to derail conversations about DV toward women. This has done little to help bring awareness, as many people (professionals, even) take this attempt to derail as evidence that DV toward men is a myth. Very interesting! πŸ€”I do agree with you 100% though.

It is true things are not as good as the old days...took Harry Potter 9 books to catch a bad guy and only 30 minutes for Scooby to do itπŸ™„

Harry Potter is 7 books long, not 9. Still funny though
