[ - ] DH here: I had gay sex last night and I think I'm traumatized. I've had a "sissy" fantasy for a long time. The idea of being a woman really turns me on or at least it does while I'm alone. Last night, I decided to go all the way and have sex with an actual man and it was absolutely terrible. I walked into his apartment and he started fondling me and calling me sexy but I was not into it at all. I didn't want to disappoint him and ended up going all the way, but the entire experience was horrendous. I woke up today and I don't feel like myself at all. I'm shaky and a nervous wreck. I feel like I've made a huge mistake and basically destroyed my masculinity for nothing. Its honestly making me sick to my stomach. I try not to think about it, but the thoughts of him touching and caressing me come back and then I feel like puking. I'm almost wish I would die. I have no idea what to do. 20 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

sometimes one has to experiment across the spectrum to be confident in their sexuality. now you have lived out that fantasy, and know that it is not for you. you live and learn. stop thinking about it and move forward. i think the bigger issue is the betrayal to your wife. i would definitely not tell her if you are 100% sure you are not gay. just bury that experience deep in a closet. your life is ruined if she finds out.

I'm from Chicago, and currently live there. The murder and crime rate is truly horrible. However, most of it is happening on the south and west sides, with a few small neighborhoods on the north side affected too. This is all about gangs and poverty. It will be the worst now through the end of the summer, slow down when school starts in September and slow down more once it gets colder outside. Summer in Chicago is beautiful, in certain places, in others not so much. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I live in the suburbs and rent the house next door, which we also own. Renters have been there for two years and always pay, but always at least a week late and always with drama like saying it will be in our mail and it's not, asking us to pick it up at other homes, etc.. I have always suspected the mother is a drug addict and weird things always happen, like repo men coming to my door for her car, police investigating domestic abuse among others. Now I have heard from a third party that they are definitely dealing drugs. My DH is worried that our house could be in danger if they are found to be dealing in it. What would you do? Am I liable if they are dealing drugs? Can I kick them out if they always pay even if late? 12 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I had to take 2 naps throughout until I found a temp desk job my 5th month. my toddlers room was also the play room/ guest room. I napped in the afternoon when she napped. In the morning, I would set a timer for 20 mins and lie under the covers of the guest bed with the door to the room closed. If she woke me up before 20 mins or pulled the covers up, I would reset the timer. Sounds mean but she quickly got the idea and is a great independent player now at 3.

[ - ] I am pretty sure my dh thinks I'm socially impaired or unable to make friends - and he's onto something :( for example, we were at playground earlier today and my 4yo was playing with a dc he just met. I was sitting by the parents and their friends and my dh was chasing our toddler around. When dh came over to sit, he asked me if I met any of the people. This has happened before - if I meet the wife of one of his old friends who move to our neighborhood/area. "You should hang out with her!" I have become pretty pathetic in my 30s. 15 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Basically, the DOE can change the zones in a welfare positive manner every time it wants to. In this case, 2 problems get resolved at once: Waiting list on PS 199 and low testing scores of PS 191.

This plan might work. PS 199 is around 900 students, and 80% white/asian. PS 191 is much smaller, only 500 students who are 90% black/hispanic.

It could also "work" as in 199 scores will go down fast and 191 will lose 1/2 the seats and will be even more under enrolled. [ Reply | More ]

199s popularity will decrease drastically and quickly while very few UMC family's who can afford to live in 199 zone will go with 191. It will solve the overcrowding for DOE...but that's about it [ Reply | More ]

Complaining? I am in D3 but much further uptown in a bad school zone. I know very well that UMC parents will not go with 191 just like they don't with most schools above ps 166. I am a realist. My kids are already in school so I have no personal interest in this [ Reply | More ]

Five years ago, no UMC families would go to PS 166 gen-ed. We didn't try for the G&T there because the school was horribly segregated. Now it's considered one of the "good" ones. Schools can change, and they can change fast. [ Reply | More ]

I live in the 199 zone, and I went to K in a Bronx public school. I would never EVER send my kids to a New York City public school unless it was super G and T. NYC has a huge population of people and education has no priority over the needs of homeless, drug-addicted, elderly...any other population in need of social services. I simply refuse to put my kids into that system. Fwiw my family moved to the burbs, I went to public school in the burbs. It was not diverse - it was a Wasp burb - but I did well and got into a great school. [ Reply | More ]

For the kids who are truly ready for it and enjoy it, it is a great decision. You miss them, but some need to fly earlier. [ Reply | More ]

They are just ready to move beyond the home family unit and meet lots of kids from different cultures and different families beyond their home geographical sphere. If you have strong emotional ties with family that are not codependent, boarding school doesn't sever them. [ Reply | More ]

I think boarding school worked for my child who just finished first year of college. It's a good transition toward being independent. One caveat is that my daughter was surprised by how hands-off college is compared to her boarding school. A big plus was that my daughter and her counselor really handled most of the college application process. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I finally watched the famous "Willie Horton" campaign ads online, and I don't understand why they were controversial. They're fairly straightforward campaign fodder. Horton was a violent maniac who never should have been released. 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I'd say it was warranted to "monger" some fear in that case, since the notion of a violent criminal being given furloughs from prison is just insane. As for "racism," no. I guess some people see everything as racism, but it looked like a pretty straightforward campaign ad to me. [ Reply | More ]

The ad run by the Bush campaign did not have Horton's picture in it. Despite all the claims by the NYT types that this ad was racist because the man who raped a woman while on a weekend pass from his prison sentence for murder was black, Dukakis' campaign chair said afterwards that there was no excuse for his release.
