How To Decide When You Can’t Decide

By Emma of fluxedupchick.blogspot.com OK so I’m THE worst decision maker on the planet. I’m a hot mess, I don’t mind admitting it. At times, the stress of just choosing the right outfit has had me in fits of tears, and expensive tickets to events have been thrown in the trash. My usual behaviour when ordering at […]

I think it all began when I was a kid…

We recently received an email, subject line “Thanks for this awesome blog!!!” Normally we ignore anything with less than two or less exclamation points.

Read All About It! (Non)Representations Childfree Men in the News

Where have all the childfree men gone? Now there’s a question Pete Seeger didn’t think to ask. It is a question my fearless collaborator and husband Lance has asked. Writer Amanda Marcotte asked it too. Childfree dating sites optimistically assumed childfree men were somewhere out there but, sadly, such sites haven’t (yet) managed to find them; instead these sites seem to launch […]

And since we’re all smart we know that empirical patterns do not mean something “always” or “never” happens. For example, one childfree myth says that […]
