There's a reason I don't install Windows Updates right away... and also Google them looking for complaints before I apply them.

Good article.

"I know it's a lurid metaphor, but I taught my daughter the preschool block precursor of don't "get raped" and this child, Boy #1, did not learn the preschool equivalent of "don't rape."

Not once did his parents talk to him about invading another person's space and claiming for his own purposes something that was not his to claim. Respect for my daughter and her work and words was not something he was learning. It was, to them, some kind of XY entitlement. How much of the boy's behavior in coming years would be excused in these ways, be calibrated to meet these expectations and enforce the "rules" his parents kept repeating?"

Filmmaker Debbie Lum talks about her documentary, Seeking Asian Female, about a white man seeking Asian brides. The guy grosses me out. He "jokes" that he was looking for a "slave." HAHAH YEAH FUNNY. White men with Asian fetishes. I know the woman chose to marry the guy to come to America, but ugh.

Haha, I just said that cause I don't think it's a fetish because I'm asian =P. I like all women and I'm not sure if I have a particular preference. Because I'm a CBC (or ABC equiv), I would only say I prefer asian women because they get the culture that asians are brought up with, expectations of education and family, etc etc, the old values that our parents brought with them as they migrated over. On the other hand, I've lived my whole life in North America so I'm more North American than anything else. I've always thought it's a tough spot for ABC's or any second gen of any race to find their own identity.

I just had an Etsy seller go off on me because I left neutral feedback for an item I didn't find was up to the advertised quality. Read the exchange here. Was I wrong? Was she not being rude? Was I being beastly? Let me know. Feel free to share. Actually, please do share. (Oh, did I mention the part where she threatens me at the end with a lawyer?)

Wow, defensive much.... She(?) was a bit over the top. You're entitled to your opinion on everything, which wasn't rude or out of line.
