As the title says, depression sucks. I’m stuck in a spiral, out of control, everything is getting worse world where no one even notices that I’m hurting or refuses to acknowledge it or want me to hide everything I feel because making them feel bad is the unforgivable sin. I’m too fat. Jeans I only … Continue reading Depression Sucks
Having come across so many radical traditionalists in my time on CAF and even one or two in real life, I thought I’d come up with a set of diagnostic criteria for a radical traditionalist, not unlike the diagnostic criteria in the DSM-IV for psychologists and psychiatrists. This isn’t perfect and I know I probably … Continue reading Signs/Symptoms of a Radical Traditionalist

The Pill didn’t benefit women. It just made the ones who took … Continue reading Sex Does Not Make You Free (While the Pill Turns You into an Unpaid Prostitute)
