“Because lying to your kids about sex helps nobody. Telling them that sex is “only between mommies and daddies” is a lie that leads to confused, hormone charged teenagers. Telling them that sex is “only something that happens when two people love each other very much” is a lie that causes hormone charged teenagers to confuse “love” with “lust,” or “obsession.” It leads to leaps of logic like, “If I have sex with them, we must be in love.” Or worse- “If I love them, I have to have sex with them.” And how many teenage tragedies are based on that misconception?”—Lea Grover, "We Don’t Play With Our Vulvas At The Table" (via themindislimitless)
It’s 12.30 on a Monday night. I am watching New Girl and thinking about how much I’d like to write comedy. I’ve got three pork chops that have been breaded with almond meal and spices baking in the oven without any real idea of when they’ll be fully cooked. How can you even tell? I don’t have a thermometer to check the meat’s temperature, but I suppose I can chance a bad case of food poisoning since I don’t have a job.
