Well, my understanding is that St Valentine day is related to commited relationships. It isn't that strange, as it is a day that was consecrated to a martyr priest who was notorious for marrying christian couples. So it makes sense it's only about romantic love, not otherwise. You may not have mean...

I've been following hockey significantly closer than I ever wanted to because my boyfriend and his housemate are seriously into it, and I was glad to see Canada crush Russia tonight. I hope they take the gold; they have a damned good team, and especially since it's their home turf and their sport, i...

Sure. It doesn't have to be some huge affair--it usually isn't, except for packages from my parents. (I didn't include this for the sake of space, but most of my friends at school have similar experiences to mine, and we certainly don't all come from the same area.) It's just spending time together ...

Sorry. I wasn't trying to sound high and mighty. I do think that my "community" has a better way of looking at the holiday than linking it to solely to romantic love. If you can even call it a community--Kim has the same experience, and NY and Texas are generally not regarded as being in the same co...

Wow. You guys were seriously deprived. No wonder you're so bitter. I grew up with Valentine's Day being a nice way to celebrate people that you cared about.

I'm sorry; I'd forgotten that I lived in a world where the celebration of holidays never evolves.

So, the Christmas tree: mass hallucination, or simply carted in from different corners of the world dating from the original celebration of Christmas?

I hate it when people call Valentine's Day "Singles Awareness Day" and the like. I understand that sometimes, that's what you're surrounded by, but I've always loved Valentine's Day, even when I wasn't in a relationship. I have friends, too; I don't understand why it needs to be connected to romance...

I feel like if you're willing to eat meat, you should be able to kill it. Does that mean that you should go out and personally kill everything you eat?

To me, there is a difference between deciding you do not want a child and deciding that you do not want a specific child.

Honestly, in many ways, I feel like homosexuality is much more similar to heterosexuality than to bisexuality.
