midnightsnack04
Well, it took me awhile to figure out how the hell to do it, but I've made is so that all of the entries posted after this one will automatically be Friends Only. In the following days I'll try to get around to make a banner, but I have three midterms next week, so it might be awhile.

FYI, if there is a post you would like to make public, you can still do that, but you must edit the entry after it's posted, and change the security then.

If you have questions or comments, post them here!

For those of you who are watching, but not currently members: Please do not forget to join the community. There are a few of you, if you'd like me to mention your names, just ask. From now on, only members can see the posts on her_answers in their entirety.

Fathers [Thursday
March 2nd, 2006 at 2:27pm]

lovelark
[ mood | blah ]

no reffering to the crappy John Mayer song.

so, my relationship with my dad is ridiculous.

a little backround: My father is a brilliant man. He's got several degrees in mathematical engineering. It's his passion- I have yet to understand how anyone can feel passionate about mathematical engineering...but there you have it. He loves thinking about how things work. He's STILL employed with Lucent Tech, a little example of his devoted, respectable self. 
And he is. He's patient, rational, cheerful....and completely non-confrontational. Seriously. He doesn't like fighting. Hates it. I had no idea until I was 16...but my dad avoids emotional confrontation as much as humanly possible. He divorced my mother (almost entirely her fault...my mom's a narcissist), remarried someone entirely unlikely, and he's finally happy. And I love him.
And he loves me. But he's so freaking scared of me. I take him to lunch, often as I can, and I visit. He's there for me, of course, whenever I need him (last night, to his utter suprised I showed up on his doorstep at 9:30, sobbing...I was having career change issues...), and while he was willing to help, comforting, and welcoming, he had no idea what to say.

I can't bear the thought of drifting away from him because I'm not a simple little girl anymore- I'm a complicated, married 20 year old chasing a career in the arts. 
What do I do to bring us closer? I have a feeling I'll keep needing my dad around.

OK, I joined this community a while back and have just realised that I never actually did this whole introduction thing and thought that I probally should... so, here goes!

Name we can call you by: Lucy

Occupation: Student, 1st Year Bsc Environmental Science.

What you do when you're slacking off: Go on MSN, generally do a whole load of nothing. I am a first year student so am rather lazy! hehe.

Significant other?: Nope.

Sexual Preference?: Straight.

Political affiliation--or the party that the least objectionable candidate normally sides with: Political questions... hmmmmm. erm... I dunno.

So...why are you here? I like reading peoples problems and offer advice if I can at all.

hey girls,

I'm in a bit of a sticky situation and need a bit of advice as i know alot of you here are slightly older than me and hence wiser.

There's a guy who i'm going out with next week and he's 4 years older than me, he's 21, when i go for guys i tend to be a bit mad but i have a feeling he's slightly more down to earth with things like that and is the kind of person who wants to like a person first before becoming more 'serious'.

Do i try and be a bit more reserved and just go along with the swing of things?

Sicko "Marriage Contract" One For The Ages
Repulsive "Wifely Expectations" pact emerges in Iowa kidnap case


FEBRUARY 17--This country, as you know, is filled with the deranged. And then there's Travis Frey, a 33-year-old Iowa man who is facing charges that he tried to kidnap his own wife (not to mention a separate child pornography rap). Frey, prosecutors contend, apparently is a rather demanding guy. In fact, he actually drew up a bizarre four-page marriage document--a "Contract of Wifely Expectations"--that sought to establish guidelines for his spouse in terms of hygiene, clothing, and sexual activities. In return for fulfilling certain requirements, Frey (pictured right) offered "Good Behavior Days," or GBDs. Each GBD, Frey wrote, could be redeemed by his wife to "get out of doing the things" he requested daily. A copy of the proposed contract, which Frey's wife never signed and later provided to cops, can be found below. While we normally point out the highlights of most documents, there are so many in this demented, and very graphic, contract, we really can't do it justice. So set aside ten minutes--and prepare to be repulsed. (4 pages)


Full contract under the cut...Collapse )

This guy is wacko.

Am I the only girl who feels ashamed of herself when she fits a female stereotype?

For example, I love literature, history, and the humanities in general, and I hate math and science. I love skirts and jewelry. I loved to play with dolls when I was a little girl. Chocolate makes me giddy. I watch more chick flicks than is probably healthy.

I know trying to change who I am to not fit into a stereotype is just as bad as changing who I am to fit one, but it's hard! Sometimes I don't even know whether I really like chick flicks or if I'm still being socially indoctrinated into believing I should like chick flicks.

Argh! *headdesk*

Last night around midnight, the community hit 70 members!

I remember a couple of months ago when I originally brought the idea of her_answers to Beth (lovelark) and started the community, our ultimate goal was 40 members. Everday this little place grows, and it's amazing to me to see what people can get out of it. I always had a worry in the back of my mind that this place might not ever get off the ground. Your participation (as well as Beth's threats to post :P) has kept it alive; thank you!

Over the past few months, a few new members have posted on the Members Info Page, so those of you who haven't visited in a while, go check it out, see who you have stuff in common with! Make sure you're logged in, or else you won't be able to see it.

Also, for those of you who have this community on your friend's list, make sure you've actually joined it (by clicking here). If you haven't joined, you're missing out on all of the friends only posts, and there are a lot on this community.

So, I'm really hesitant to post/ask this due to the number of people that actually know me. To those: don't be alarmed! It was a conversation that a friend and I had.

Anyway, the real purpose is to ask y'all what your opinions on eloping are? Is it too old-fashioned? Is it irrational and stupid? Is it a passive-aggressive way out of or around something?

Being the Muse [Tuesday
February 21st, 2006 at 11:15am]

lovelark
It happpened again.
Ever since I turned 16, I've been "inspiring" people (primarily men) to get involved with theater again, to write the great american musical, to perform that song, to jump back into theater. I never do anything. It seems like I'm always just perfectly friendly, and open, but it never fails. There's always SOME guy who takes a special interest in me, and I become their muse.

It's never been sexual in nature. Never overtly so, at least. Once of twice I've had my suspicions that there's a little more that artistic inspiration involved, but it's so innocent.
The most recent case is this guy I JUST started working with. He was hired several weeks ago, and I've been helping out the new people alot- and I've been trying to be friendly- get to knwo everyone a little bit. So this guy has a history of performance in common with me- we were exchanging stories lastweek about chasing the theater, anecdotes about backstage mis-haps, I told him about a friend of mine (incidentally, someone else who has used me as his *muse* several times) Who has had 3 of his scripts published, performed, and taken in income, and I offered to put the fellow I work with in touch with my friend.

This morning, the guy work with started exhanging little friendly office-chum e-mails, and suddenly he tells me that I've inspired him to finish his 3/4ths of the way done script, and he would VERY much like me to play the lead. I'm flattered, but holy crap! This happens CONSTANTLY.

I think I'm cute, but I wasn't blessed with other-worldly beauty. I'm talented, but the guy has only heard me sing under my breath at me desk. I asked him why he thought I would be perfect, and he said "I love your speaking voice, and something about your attitude and countenance strikes me as [character he's developed]'s exact style. Besides, you belong on the stage. Not behind a desk".

I'm flattered, really...but I don't know how to feel about this. Should I think nothing of it and merely take it as a compliment to my personality? Should I be worried that I'm always the muse, and never the author? or, is there something more sinister at work? Could I be sub-consiously flirting? Is this a common ploy among men to shy to suggest something more illicit?

I've been doing some thinking on women and the pressures we face to look what society considers "attractive." Also struggling with my own self-esteem issues regarding my appearance and it spurred me to write a rant. I put it under the cut in case you don't feel like reading my random thoughts about my own body image and my pessimistic views on society. Also written with heterosexual relationships in mind, as it is based on my own experinces. ;)

I just visited the site www.feministing.com and found two disgustingly sexist things related to PETA. One is this site and the other is this ad. I can't believe I've actually supported them in the past now they've done this! I've written a complaint to them but hopefully if more people can do the same than they'll get the hint.

[ mood | depressed ]

Yesterday I found out that someone I knew as a very young boy killed himself.

He was a friend of my younger brothers when they were in grade school. I haven't since him since he was about 10. He was 17 when he laid down on the tracks.
Our aqquaintance was incidental back when I lived in my old neighborhood, and I know NOTHING about the half-man he had become..but for some reason I can't shake this horrible feeling.
You see, when I moved away from West Chicago, I was 14 years old. In my mind, nothing changed there. I left the little boys, and the neighborhood and the houses frozen in time...and to me, it's not a 17 year who killed himself, it's 10 year old kyle, missing a tooth.

I have no right to mourn this boy. I haven't thought of him once since I left, but his purposeful death is jarring to me,

Thoughts? Comments? Ideas?
I'm just trying to find a way to steady myself. It's strange since this isn' an immediate loss, all my coping techniques don't apply. There's not a void left inside me, just a startling realization that one can never go home again.

HELL yeah.
I'm not very good at sports.
I'm not sure why- I mean, I'm coordinated. I can dance really well- always have. I'm fast- I've always been a great runner, but give me a ball and a goal and I turn into a spineless moron. I have no idea why. I just...suck. So to proctect myself and my gender, I refrain from playing so I don't have to hear someone tell me I suck 'cuz I'm a girl.

My husband and I started fencing a few weeks ago. Last ngiht we finally started open-bouting in my fencing class- in which most of the students are men. I kicked ass.
I mean...I totally rocked. I think I got hit once...and I hit each partner I was with (all men) 3 or 4 times. The advantage was partially in my boobs- really. Everyone was so preoccupiedwith where NOT to hit that I was able to lunge while they were still thinking. It was so fucking cool.

Am I totally weird because sometimes I really want to go and try on wedding dresses even though I'm not planning a wedding right now(Robby and I are getting a place this summer, then an engagement is following sometime after getting settled in).
I just start thinking about when Robby and I get married, and sometimes he'll say little things like "At our wedding, we'll do this", and I just get this urge to start trying to find THE dress. haha

I haven't actually done it, but I think one of these days I'm going to give in lol.

It reminds me of that one Friend's episode when all the girls go out and rent wedding dresses cause it makes them feel good.

So, am I weird? Or do some of you get this urge too?

Someone who will cherish your name... [Sunday
February 5th, 2006 at 2:52am]

brokkensmiile
[ mood | contemplative ]

I work with a really amazing woman named Brooke. Brooke has been with Friday's for 5 years and is by far our best server. She's blunt and she's honest and she has limited bull shit tolerance for sure. She's incredibly intimidating but when you get her in a conversation she'll teach you everything. She makes you think about everything you do and say, its crazy.


This evening after our day shifts, Brooke and I were discussing the guy I'm dating. I was mentioning some things he's said and done lately that have been kind of a turn off. She asked me why I put up with it? I told her I wasn't in it for the long run. She immediately became a different person. She started putting together the words in her head to tell me how crazy of an idea that was. She said, "Wasting time is making mistakes. Think about it." She asked me, "Do you want women to put their hands on your husband?" Of course I said "No". She continued, "Then why put your hands on someone else's husband?" She told me that it bothers her to know how many women her finace has been with and to know how many people she's been with. "It's upsetting to think about how many women have put their hands all over the love of my life."


At first I thought she was crazy, but I've thought about it for the whole night. It's part of the reason I am still awake right now. She's absolutely right. I dont want my husband to have had all these other women in his life because he was meant for me! He is the person I was supposed to be with and its almost as if the other women took him from me before I even got there. Maybe I'm sounding crazy too. At a glance this is almost like preaching abstinence, but I hope you see where its more than that.


Out of respect for you and your future husbands, ladies, I pledge my hands off policy. Because I could sleep with the next guy and he could end up marrying you, he could be the person you want to grow old with, but I had my hands all over him first. Now how do you feel? I hope that out of respect for me or your friends and our future husbands, you will do the same.


 I'm done wasting my time with guys that aren't meant for me. Its not fair for me to occupy their time or put my hands all over someone else's someone. I'm not looking for a soul mate at 18, I'm just not spending more time on relationships that are meant to happen between two other people. Dating isnt that much fun for me anyways. I don't like the mind games or the desperate attmept to hide all feelings or the mile long list of do's and dont's so as not to scare the other person off. I'm done with games.


Don't ever settle. Don't ever take what you can get, instead find the beauty in waiting for what you deserve.

[ mood | contemplative ]

"If you ask me...Too many of us don't see who we are when we look in the mirror. If you're one of the lucky ones who do, congratulate yourself, because an awful lot of women I hear from see who they are not. 'My breasts are too small!' writes one. 'My nose is too big!" cries another. 'Too small, too big, too fat, too thin for what?' is the question. For the crazy, illogical ideal of how women think we should look? 'Make me look like her,' we say to the surgeon or the hairdresser or the trainer at the gym, pointing to a photo of some movie star or model. Will someone tell me why anyone volunteers to be a clone? There has never, ever been a you before; there will never be another. It is an honor to be you. So when you look in the nirror, smile! That's you."

Okay so this isn't really a question so much as an observation and my own experiences but I needed to share it because in real life my mum seems to be the only one who understands exactly how it made me feel and I wondered if anyone had any good ways of handling these people...

I went to a nightclub last night (for my first time) and didn't enjoy it at all. Admittedly it was fun for about the first hour but after that the whole thing just got to me. I kind of expected that I wouldn't like it, but that didn't change the fact later on. Like everywhere else guys like whores. Although admittedly this helped keep them away from me :) Whenever anyone had the bright idea of attempting to try and make me dance though I've realised that I must be a lot gayer than I thought I was (which was bisexual with a leaning towards men) because I could not stand the thought of dancing with them. I just felt disgusted when any of them (not that two are all that many) tried to touch me at all - even just on the shoulder trying to get my attention.

I think it has something to do with me being a determined feminist who can't stand seeing women being exploited for men's sick pleasure. But whatever it was I hated being in the position I was in just because I was female and how I was just expected to put up with it as it was 'normal'.

In the end I ended up just standing there with my arms crossed looking like a complete bitch but when some guy came up to me and said somthing along the lines of "Loosen up gorgeous" I just fled into the toilets and ended up crying in a cubicle until my friends found me. Just the whole attitude that I should be happy and "loose" just for them and the fact that it was such a superficial environment (which of course it would be) in which my intelligence/personality etc had absolutely no value it made me feel like a piece of meat, so I couldn't wait to get home. I'm so much happier in loose clothes and no make up reading a book than that disgusting environment in which we're meant to enjoy being exploited.

A lot has been said about how to prevent rape.
Women should learn self-defence. Women should lock themselves in their houses after dark. Women shouldn't have long hair and women shouldn't wear short skirts. Women shouldn't leave drinks unattended. Fuck, they shouldn't dare to get drunk at all.

instead of that bullshit, how about:


if a woman is drunk, don't rape her.
if a woman is walking alone at night, don't rape her.
if a women is drugged and unconscious, don't rape her.
if a woman is wearing a short skirt, don't rape her.
if a woman is jogging in a park at 5 am, don't rape her.
if a woman looks like your ex-girlfriend you're still hung up on, don't rape her.
if a woman is asleep in her bed, don't rape her.
if a woman is asleep in your bed, don't rape her.
if a woman is doing her laundry, don't rape her.
if a woman is in a coma, don't rape her.
if a woman changes her mind in the middle of or about a particular activity, don't rape her.
if a woman has repeatedly refused a certain activity, don't rape her.

if a woman is not yet a woman, but a child, don't rape her.
if your girlfriend or wife is not in the mood, don't rape her.
if your step-daughter is watching tv, don't rape her.
if you break into a house and find a woman there, don't rape her.
if your friend thinks it's okay to rape someone, tell him it's not, and that he's not your friend.

if your "friend" tells you he raped someone, report him to the police.
if your frat-brother or another guy at the party tells you there's an unconscious woman upstairs and it's your turn, don't rape her, call the police and tell the guy he's a rapist.

tell your sons, god-sons, nephews, grandsons, sons of friends it's not okay to rape someone.

don't tell your women friends how to be safe and avoid rape.
don't imply that she could have avoided it if she'd only done/not done x.
don't imply that it's in any way her fault.
don't let silence imply agreement when someone tells you he "got some" with the drunk girl.
don't perpetuate a culture that tells you that you have no control over or responsibility for your actions. You can, too, help yourself.


If you agree, repost it. It's that important.

The Feminine [Thursday
February 2nd, 2006 at 1:19pm]

midnightsnack04
Alright, I thought it was time to bring some interesting and possibly controversial discussion to the community.

I anticipate that many of the members here are Christian--I suppose in general, I am as well. I believe that Christ was God's son, and I believe in heaven and hell, but as to the Bible, that's about all I believe.

Being a feminist, I've gone through personal struggles with Christianity, particularly the Bible. I believe it to be a racist and sexist book, and the way it was compiled and some of the gospels that were discarded by the Church early in it's history bothers me. I feel that the sacredness of The Feminine has been lost from Christianity, and it hurts me.

The Feminine is a very simple idea, based almost completely on one Biblical character--Mary Magdalene, as well as her gospel which was left out of the Bible, but what is left of the original text can be found online.

Mary Magdalene: The Gnostic GospelsCollapse )

Short Biography on MaryCollapse )

What I want to know is how you ladies feel on the subject? Do think it was possible Mary was the lost wife (or the Holy Grail) of Jesus, or is that simply blasphemous? Is the absence of The Feminine from the Bible significant to you (and/or your faith if you are Christian)? If you aren't Christian, how does your religion approach the idea of femininity, and how do you feel about it?

Comment with your thoughts, opinions, ideas, other links. Every opinion is welcome!

Marion was out like a light, and after 45 minutes, lying, eying him with something between admiration and resentment I woke him up and tried to wear myself out- it was fun, but it did no good with the sleep issue.
His back started acting up, to he had to move to the highly comfortable couch, and I moved with him and curled up next to him on the floor reading my book. It took me until 2 am to finally get to sleep.
