Lazy Time Reblog Sunday: Feminist Frequency

If the definition of feminism is the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities (which according to Merriam-Webster, is exactly what it is), then I guess that's what I am. Personally, I wish we could all just get along and stop beating each other up over stupid crap like whether or not to leave the toilet seat up or put it back down after use. The latter, of course, is the correct choice, and I'll defend that assertion to my grave. I'm certainly not going to kill my husband over the issue, though. Especially since we have an unspoken agreement that if he puts the seat down, I'm responsible for removing hair from the sink, thus keeping my ass dry, the plumbing from getting clogged, and our marriage from dissolving into ruination. Fair is fair, after all.

Feminism?
This week's Lazy Time Reblog comes from Anita Sarkeesian, creator and host of the web series Feminist Frequency. I was a little hesitant about reblogging this one, not only because the subject matter attracts the type of trolls I'm not keen on dealing with, but also because Sarkeesian is a bit of a controversial subject in her own right. She has the entire gaming community in an uproar over her Tropes vs. Women series and was the target of some online harassment. Although I don't agree with everything she says in the series, I do believe it's her right to say it. So here it is, and my rules for hate mail and comments still apply. If you don't want to be blogged, don't email me.

Five Things You Didn't Know Could Happen During a Massage

Everyone likes a good massage. Well, almost everyone. There are some that cringe at the very idea of being naked in a room while a total stranger rubs them down. These people are either crazy or have never had a massage before and don't know what they're missing. There are also the ones that like massage a little too much and should feel free to do to themselves what they erroneously believe they are paying me to do to them. Also, read item number 3 of this blog article I wrote in November of 2012 and follow the instructions therein.

But for those of you who are just looking for a nice, perfectly innocent, legal, and in no way rage inducing way to relax, massage is the way to go. That said, there are a few things you should be prepared for before getting that first massage. Things such as...

1. I CAN MAKE YOU FART LIKE A GODDAMN MACHINE GUN

I once had a client come in for a deep tissue massage who must have eaten a very big, extremely gassy meal right before climbing onto my tab…

Top 5 Things That Drive Your Massage Therapist Crazy

I recently read an article titled 8 Things Your Masseuse Doesn't Want You to Know. After reading it thoroughly, I've come to the conclusion that the LMT's (licensed massage therapists, for those of you not in the know) interviewed either haven’t been in the business for very long, or really hate their jobs. For example, one of the items mentioned that most massage therapists get scared when their clients snore. I don't buy that. I think if a client is relaxed enough to fall asleep on my table, I'm doing a damn fine job. Isn't snoring like applause for massage therapists? It is to me.
It got me to thinking of my own personal pet peeves though, so I tried googling Things Your LMT Hates or Things That Drive Your Masseuse to Drinking, but these searches provided no useful data, and quite frankly I’d like to know what insane, perverted monkey Google put in charge of their search engine for me to come up with this list:

Since Google failed me miserably, I thought I wou…

Facebook PM Mating Call 2: Take the Hint Perv

If the internet has taught me anything over the years, it's this: No matter how unattractive you think you are, no matter how homely you might be, there will always be that one pervert who will whack off to your profile picture and beg you for cyber sex in a Facebook private message chat. And chances are, this pervert will misspell everything he types and mangle the English language beyond recognition. I consider myself an understanding, open minded person. People get lonely. I get that. If you never ask, you'll never know. But when someone tells you they're married and not interested in your need to "take out sperm", you should take what they say at face value and try to hit up someone else. Especially when they tell you they have a history of blogging morons who won't take no for an answer. Case in point:
