Re: [SAFESPACE] Woman Thread - All Things Women. Period.

Questioning, examining, and challenging the status quo does not necessarily mean that you are trying to convince yourself of something that isn't true. It means you're taking a close look at yourself. It's something to be admired. If your conclusion is that you are cis woman, that is fine. You went ...

Re: Help name my child!

May I first suggest you check out this thread on what not to name your child. Ashley is quite a nice name, and it's gender neutral. Cameron seems to be quite popular these days. There's Courtney as well (though for some reason, I don't like it that much, but that's just personal opinion). Those are...

Re: Makeup 101

Some people also whiten their fingernail tips with pencils like this one. I don't like the feeling of things under my nails and clean them often (several times a day), so this doesn't work for me, but it's easier than a french manicure.

Re: Pant Thread (because we need more panting)

To be honest, the moral side of it completely invalidates my argument. However, if you remove that from the equation, it does come down to choosing to not experience something which lots of people enjoy, for a very simple reason. How good it tastes. I would like to point out that not everyone likes...
