Sex, Slut Shaming, and Class (Might be NSFW)

January 28th, 2012 | Posted by MatronEdea in Attitudes - (6 Comments)

Sex is not something we should be ashamed of. If consenting adults have a sexual relationship and they’re being responsible about it, I don’t see why they should have to hide it. There are people, though, who think that sex is something that should be whispered. I know a few people who are uncomfortable even saying the …

Ex-Boyfriend Nicknames

January 6th, 2012 | Posted by MatronEdea in Journal | Uncategorized - (3 Comments)

I have dated many guys in the last 10 years. Most of them I don’t count — I exclude everyone before high school for the most part — but in explaining my past to Bryce, I’ve discovered that I give my exes strange nicknames. The first boyfriend I had was called Lemonhead. Not really, I …

2011 vs 2012

December 31st, 2011 | Posted by MatronEdea in Attitudes | Journal - (1 Comments)

The last year has been full of changes for me. I ended a 3 year long relationship, got over the idea that I needed someone, moved to Los Angeles, started another relationship and got engaged, and traveled to Australia to be with my fiance. I also ran out of money — resulting in my not being …

Fight Or Flight

December 14th, 2011 | Posted by MatronEdea in Attitudes | Autobiography | Journal - (6 Comments)

I wrote this essay for my writing class this term, and told whoever read my blog that I would post it… So here you go. Names have been changed, of course.   There is nothing quite like being paralyzed by fear. When we are faced with a situation like this – knowing that no matter …

Autobiography Blogs: Age 0-5

December 9th, 2011 | Posted by MatronEdea in Autobiography | Journal - (2 Comments)

I’ve decided to start writing my life out, a bit. Like an autobiography with a year or two at a time, except for this post. I have very little memory of my life before I was 3 or so, so this post will mostly be about my first few years of existence. So. My parents …

Racism Means NO CURRY

December 1st, 2011 | Posted by MatronEdea in Attitudes | Journal | Politics - (3 Comments)

I watched a Youtube video that shows some racist British lady spouting nonsense about immigrants going back to “Nigwagwoh” and to stop “commandeering” Britain, because Britain is “fuck all” now that there are “brown people” on her tram.

Fake Personas on Teh Internetz!

November 13th, 2011 | Posted by MatronEdea in Attitudes | Journal | Uncategorized - (9 Comments)

Ah, yes. Within the MyIGN community, there have been two recent “fake” people. One was quickly forgiven, her reasons were easy to understand and she’s still a part of the community. She explained herself and that was pretty much the end of the situation. With the more recent one, it was a guy who had …

Inequality Bitching and Bullying

November 1st, 2011 | Posted by MatronEdea in Attitudes | Journal | Politics - (1 Comments)

A lot of guys are sick of women (and men) bitching about inequality. They think it’s overdone, people should just get over it, etc. They think that talking about it won’t make it go away. When one of Leigh Alexander’s many posts went up on Kotaku, many of the comments said things like “stop labeling …

Last Night’s Dream

October 28th, 2011 | Posted by MatronEdea in Dreams | Journal - (0 Comments)

It was weird. So, first, I had a dream where I was in a parking garage, standing next to an SUV like my mom’s. It was full of CATS! My cat was also in there, and I was having trouble because I needed to fold one of the seats down and the cats kept jumping …
