I Was A Slut For Sleeping With Him

Write it down, I'm told. Anything you can remember, just write it down. The thing is you want me to remember, to recall events, to be able to tell you about them - but you fail to understand that these particulars, the particulars I am ashamed of, were not that important to me. Not in… Continue reading I Was A Slut For Sleeping With Him

Reblogging Emma: I’m a Mean Wife

Post #3 in my flashback/recycling series - this one was also made private awhile back and was a continuation of the first post I posted in this series (An Evil Woman.) Originally posted in December 2015. A few months ago I was laying in bed reading or writing or some such literary activity when my… Continue reading Reblogging Emma: I’m a Mean Wife

Intense As…

I have a new friend you guise. Another American that recently moved here, and we have so much in common, it seems. I went to her house yesterday for an Art date (Just sit around and chat while being creative - it's been a good 7ish years since I've had a friend to do that… Continue reading Intense As…

Well, Hello Sailor

The problem with asking your best friends for ideas for your blog is that they will invariably bring up that they still laugh when you write BJJ - for it's resemblance to the acronym "BJ" - and then suggest that that you write something vulgar. Well, that's my best friends for you anyway. So, no,… Continue reading Well, Hello Sailor

Vulgar Things

Ever look at someone and think... Well, no, what I thought when I saw his picture is probably not kosher to relay on a blog or where anyone that only moderately knows me may read. Or, you know... like my mother might see or something. I suppose I'm not above writing vulgar things, even here,… Continue reading Vulgar Things

Dear Mr Harris

Earlier this week I wrote about a trigger I had when I came across someone that mentioned Joshua Harris' 1997 book "I Kissed Dating Goodbye." Today I got a comment from Kristen over at The Ungodly Woman who let me know that Mr Harris has started apologizing to people for the negative effects of his… Continue reading Dear Mr Harris

Fuck it, I dated

Who remembers that book "I Kissed Dating Goodbye" by Josh Harris? Ah, that's right... now I can tell which of you grew up in the evangelical youth culture. I just read a blog that mentioned that book, and man it took me back... It took me back to the evangelical days of my youth in which… Continue reading Fuck it, I dated

Rape Culture, or Why We’re Afraid of “Nice Guys”

  You who have been following me for a while will know I rarely make comment on current events in the media. I rarely write posts related to issues that are happening in the political or religious platforms – or anything that people would want to debate… But there is a particular issue in the… Continue reading Rape Culture, or Why We’re Afraid of “Nice Guys”

A Numbers Game

I'll get back to writing about my surgery later - I have a few things I want to record, such as my tactile hallucinations and what it was like to actually go under... but first I have another topic on my mind that I wanted to write about before I lose the inspiration. So I… Continue reading A Numbers Game

Glory be?

My father tried to save my soul again the other day. The thing is... I am a Christian already, apparently I'm just not the kind of Christian my dad is. He has become a lot more evangelical in the past few years. He wasn't like this for most of my childhood. We went through hills… Continue reading Glory be?

A Pleasant Surprise

I had been considering telling my husband about the new manuscript. No, well - I knew I needed to tell him, but I needed to consider HOW to tell him. He had not been happy about my last book - he still doesn't want his friends and family to know about that book because it… Continue reading A Pleasant Surprise

The Abstinence and Shaming Culture

I don't talk much about topics that tend to make people emotional. I mentioned that in my last post. Topics that would be considered "subversive" in any way with any of my friends or acquaintances I avoid because I just don't want to hear it. I don't want to argue. I don't want to feel… Continue reading The Abstinence and Shaming Culture

Followup to “That One Night”

**Not for youth audiences again please** Look, I know putting that^^ little notice won’t stop any young people from reading these posts if they want to. May even peak their interest… So if any youth actually read these posts regardless of my request, I hope that you are at least taking a lesson or two… Continue reading Followup to “That One Night”

That One Night

  Alternative titles: "Not my most shining moment," Or "Hur Emma blev smittad med klamydia." When I was in Sweden... 17 or so, I believe I was at this time... Maybe early 18. I met a guy named Patrik. Real name, who gives a crap at this point honestly. We have no connections and I… Continue reading That One Night

Those Tricky Boys

  I am by no means a misandrist, but from my own experiences I am here to tell you - them boys... they lie. Girls, watch out! Of course, Wyatt lied. He lied about his faithfulness even as he demanded I be faithful. He lied about love and about sin. Every word out of his… Continue reading Those Tricky Boys
