Fitting with what you said about male insecurity in the NSFW hate thread, I mentioned to boyfriend yesterday that one of the things that read as a sign of healthy confidence in a man to me is the combination of being built and walking a teensy dog. Gotta respect body builders with chihuahuas.
“It’s being used to inflame partisan politics” was... kind of one aspect what I was trying to more subtly convey with “as long as I can turn it to my advantage,” yes. Holy fuck US politics feels like a bad RTS game right now.
You and your parents are great people for caring so much about your sister, and I'm sorry you had to bring her up in such unpleasant circumstances to illustrate a point I'd been trying to make. Thank you so much for weighing in there; I'm afraid I ran out of capacity for being told I'm lazy and deserve to live half a life. :/
