Re: “What they don't tell you about trying to get pregnant, from cycle crashes to sex on demand

Dear Dr iyare, After 6 years trying to conceive I finally got pregnant 2 weeks after I contacted you from your website It was simply amazing. I had history of recurrent miscarriages and was also diagnosed with genetic problems but using your system I got pregnant naturally at age 44& after 2 HSGs and 4 negative IUIs including 6 induction Clomid cycles and laparscopy. God will bless you and your good work more and more. I am recommending your program to all my friends. contact him on his website or email him via and get your problems solved. God bless you!"

Re: “In which I address every bad argument I've heard against booking more women at music festivals

"It's absolutely possible for festival bookers to fill those spaces with more women without losing ticket sales."

I'd be careful with your absolutes. Maybe not this year or next year, but devaluing the experience (in whatever form, by whoever's standards) will have a future effect.

Wholeheartedly agree:
"I want to see the bands who are being booked speak up for their female peers who are overlooked. And as the ticket-buyers for these fests, we should support more female artists. Ask promoters where the women are. Let promoters know about them, buy their records, go to their shows. Make it damn near impossible for music festivals to keep ignoring them."

Re: “In which I address every bad argument I've heard against booking more women at music festivals

Pitchfork Fest runs at a 30% clip, not bad. My personal viewing/listening agenda at that fest will include a 60% female acts. It is disappointing if there is a concerted effort to keep women of festival bills and the numbers aren't good. I can at least say, from my perspective here in Nashville, I know more women playing music than ever before and so many of my favorite bands involve women and it's awesome. It is rare that I am ever attending a show and there aren't women on the stage rocking the fuck out, so I have to believe it is getting better than it ever has before.

Re: “From UVA to UT and beyond, the response to victims who bravely step forward is downright disgusting

If you want to have an excellent mood today, click over to the news and see the devastation wrought upon Rolling Stone feature about campus rapes at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.

Kim Green writes above: "It's a familiar story:" BWAHHAHAHAHAHAH FUCKING HA

Kim Green writes above: "Just listen, and save your blame and contempt for the people who actually fucking deserve it." LIKE THE AUTHOR OF THE ORIGINAL RAPE STORY WHO LIED AND DISREGARDED CONFLICTING EVIDENCE. Like every journalist and campus-rape-hysteria advocate who bought into this story to advance an agenda, an agenda based on false statistics. Like those who offer no apology to fraternity members at Virginia and across the country. Like the President of UVA.

I hope Kim Green feels safer. I really do. There is no campus rape crisis.

If there were, parents of teenagers need to be strung up for sending their daughters to college.

Re: “Surviving a year of bad dates

The Scene should invite men to write about the psycho bitches from hell they've dated.

Of course, most men wouldn't write such a column, because society doesn't condone men whining in public about bad dates.

Re: “Surviving a year of bad dates

Forgive me if I'm wrong but I actually think the essay is about enjoying (or the examination of) the process of weeding out who and what is good for you and finding yourself. The growing pains and awkward stories along the journey are some of the best parts to reflect on and makes you appreciate where you are now and your judgement on when you DO find the right partner. And let's not come on to the author here because that's just rude, mmmkay?

Re: “Surviving a year of bad dates

I favor the line, "If you play games, you are going to get games — not a relationship that will matter." Paraphrased, I say this means, be yourself, if yourself isn't good enough for the other person, they aren't good enough for you. There are worse things in life than being single, actually, for a happy single person, there are few things better in life.

Re: “Surviving a year of bad dates

I have had many bad dates I have meet online. I feel if you find some good free sites, you can get just as good results as the pay sites. A new one you may want to look at really was completely free to join and communicate. Also they do criminal background checks on all that join. Give them a look if you want to try online dating. If you are a good single women, I'd like to see you there. Hope this is helpful.

Re: “Looking at other women pushes one woman to look within

Thigh gap envy? The one time it was brought it up in my manly circles the consensus was that a woman's thigh gap is tolerable but only because a girl with one usually can't help it.

Men are comparing fitness levels....At 60....I can honestly say that I do it because it makes me feel better...emotionally, spiritually, AND physically. Love you.

Re: “Looking at other women pushes one woman to look within

Relax, Ms. Gibson, men do the same anguished 'What's HE got that I don't......' comparison thing with and to each other too.

We just don't and won't 'fess up publicly. Vanity, thy name is Male Ego.

Re: “What we talk about when we talk about 'rape culture'

Ms. Green, loved your article and some of it could have been written by me because of my life experiences. Frank wrote that he is in total agreement with your article. I read that he was trying to be supportive. I was not offended by his assertion that people bear some responsibility when it comes to their safety. However, I can understand why some people were offended, as it can easily be read that victims are to blame with the suggestion of some "responsibility" onus. I am sharing a different perspective. This is how I would word it: "People can learn tactics with which they can very effectively help to protect themselves against predatory types and they would be wise to do so." That's how I perceived Frank's statement. I'll expand on that.
Nobody is going to make predators go away and leave others alone. Many predators prefer easy victims, some of them like the challenge of a more difficult victim. Thankfully, predators are the small minority and most people are good and would never think of violating anyone.
When women learn how to effectively recognize who is a potential threat or what circumstances can turn ugly, she can, with adequate knowledge, turn the tables on him/them. That way, she gains control over the situation.
I know the long-term multi-faceted hell a woman goes through after she has been violated. There is no excuse on the part of the perpetrator(s), it is a deplorable act and makes me very angry at any non-man who thinks it's okay, for any reason.
But, I think Frank's point and my point are similar. Women can take steps to empower themselves, make themselves less likely to be victimized.
I, too, would love to see more people with the courage enough to take control and defend the victim when things get so out of hand that someone ends up very damaged by those who took advantage of their vulnerability. It often does take one soul who cares enough and is strong enough that he/she doesn't give a shit what the "pack" wants to do. Because, as I have experienced more than once in my life, that when you "swim upstream", do what you know is right, even if it doesn't look like a popular choice, you might find that you are amazed how many admire and decide to follow your example. Bless you!

Re: “The Other Woman comes to terms with Another Other Woman

Abby- i hope you disregard Phil's ignorant and pathetic attempt at comedy. You are a true crusader for women's rights and your personal accounts of life's raw and real stories no matter how ugly- that many of us experience ourselves but would never have the gall to make public in the service to start a conversation about taboo topics- should be met with NOTHING but awe and admiration. Kudos to you- dont ever let these bottom dwellers steer you from being yourself.

Knowing Abby (or at least her public persona), she was probably drunk all through this "affair."
