Do you go to therapy to figure out what you want, or figure out what you want and go to therapy for it?

I'm trying to pick a direction.

I want to have more one-on-one connections to people, having genuinely social and invested conversations. I primarily hang out on GChat for this. Would anyone care to join me some day?

If, in the next day or so, you noticed I've unfriended you, panic not:

I will either be soon adding you back as part of my restructuring, or will be happy to add you back to have you again.

Trying out green nailpolish. I think a number of people were right about green washing out my coloring.

My offer post on Freecycle (a cube storage system and a few fabric bins) garnered thirty-eight responses in just a few hours. I like to think that everyone is kind and deserving, so I had to make a shortlist. I have a two-criteria system: 80% who can pick it up tonight, and 20% for formatting and spelling.

Five or six people left!

...WTF.

Well, there goes my good mood for the day.

NYTimes, the bastion of quality reporting, reported on the gang-rape of an 11 year-old girl in Texas  that's led to charges against 18 high-school boys so far - all well and good so far, right?  Shit like this NEEDS publicity to raise awareness. 

Only problem is, they repeated - without refutation or critical commentary - the claims that the girl brought the rape on herself because of the way she was dressed.

Choice Quotes (No cut b/c everyone needs to see this - DEAL.):

“It’s just destroyed our community,” said Sheila Harrison, 48, a hospital worker who says she knows several of the defendants. “These boys have to live with this the rest of their lives.  As opposed to the victim, who's gonna bounce back lickety-fucking-split, right?

Residents in the neighborhood where the abandoned trailer stands — known as the Quarters — said the victim had been visiting various friends there for months. They said she dressed older than her age, wearing makeup and fashions more appropriate to a woman in her 20s. She would hang out with teenage boys at a playground, some said.  TOTALLY BEGGING FOR IT.

THIS IS RAPE CULTURE, PEOPLE.

Now, what's being said and done in this community is bad enough, but the NY Times should be fucking ashamed of themselves right now.
