Commenting area

  1. I enjoyed this episode very much and hearing what Pepper Mint and Joreth had to say on the Steve Pavlina poly/divorce story. The point about monogamy never being blamed when monogamous marriages fail is right on, especially in the contexgt of of not making assumptions and instead actually reading what the Pavlinas have to say about it.

  2. Last time there was an internet kerfluffle over some stupid post at The Spearhead (some silliness about the “feminization” of science fiction), I tried to read the article in question. I didn’t have any luck reading the original because I couldn’t get past laughing at the amusingly phallic masthead. Couldn’t manage any better this time around.

    The Spearhead is clearly a Manly site, for Manly men, who like to discuss Manly things, like gladiator movies and Greco-Roman wrestling.
