iheartscotch: EnormousGreenRageMonster: iheartscotch: A kid in my year of high school had the last name Raper. Pronounced exactly the way you think.

Driving home to Maryland from Kansas during vet school there was a whole series of billboards through most of Missouri advertising the various business (cars, RVs, real estate) of Tom Raper.  Gotta think I'd have changed my name if I was going to go into a business with said name plastered all over it.

1) Why would you go to veterinary school in MARLYLAND, if your folks lived in Kansas? KSU would have been less than half the cost. Did you have a scholarship or something?


Re-read and pay closer attention to the bolded part. I was at KSU for vet school and driving HOME to Maryland, that is, *away* from school.

Or you could not drag all of us into your forced women's studies program and let us get a nice education based on hard work, study, and old fashioned book learning.
It's really sad they have to have a celebration of the vaghoohoo month and wave the red flag and have a guest speaker at the expense of all the other students.
Also, subby owes me a farking keyboard.

Great book.  I especially enjoyed the concept of marriage for love being an absurd premise in the pre-Victorian era.  That and the argument that Abraham Lincoln wasn't gay because frottage was pretty normal in his era.

I know, Stephanie right?  You're not subverting the dominant paradigm by coopting and feminizing Stephen.

There was a Dr Kuntz who had a suite in one of the medical arts close by my house.

Unfortunately, she was a dentist,

hermitage_deux: "Coontz said men have doubled the amount of house care and tripled the amount of child care from the 1960s. "   -FTA

wtf does that mean?  how can men triple the amount of child care required to raise a child compared to the 60's?    in the 60s they were previously allowed to ignore them?   or keep them in a pen in the backyard?


Because women now need to go to work to support their families because men are sexist, lazy, deadbeat losers.  If they would just take their place caring for the children, women would be able to go to their careers and fulfill themselves professionally while fulfilling themselves personally with their families.  Because no man ever has had to choose between providing for their family with a career and living leaner but having an enriching homelife.  They don't need men anyway so they may just divorce them to punctuate their independence (and collect spousal support and child support)

Misogynist.

I've seen that too. I think it was in Indiana though.


As a pre-teen living in Indiana, I recall many drives east of Indianapolis towards Richmond and laughing like Butthead at the endless Tom Raper signs.

I think it's more disappointing that Indiana's number one source of homes is a guy selling trailers.
