TGIFF – Don’t Be a Dick
I’ve seen a lot of dick in my life. Your partner’s beer can stubbie, yep! Your future ex-husband’s just so-so sword, tick! Your Italian stallion lover’s good time gargantuan, oh yeah! Your current flame’s uncut utopia, for sure! And unfortunately, even your ex-boyrfriend’s micro-penis. (You knew that would never work out, right?) Oh my ladies and gents, I could proceed to describe them all for you, but let’s just be honest and say, if it exists, I’ve witnessed it. Now, generally, it’s been a blast, but you have to know, that sometimes people can be real dicks. And I don’t mean that in the ooh la la way!
Secondly, this incredible conversation that happened over gender politics in quilting. Wowsers! I never knew there was so much investment from so many of you. I rather enjoy an occasional heated debate, so I was happy to host part of it on my blog. After our own frustration venting, Stephanie, Stephanie and I were all about inspiring discourse amongst those who wanted to participate. And then some people went a bit psycho-cray with their commentary, and starting acting like dicks. I was not about to put up with that! Trust that there was plenty of conversation within our Men Who Quilt group, and I unapologetically pulled rank a few times.
I hope you never have to make one of these for someone you know, but if you do, there could be a pattern lingering. 😉
