“Please...most of us would stay in our houses if you know how many germs were in most places. Lemon is an acidic and an astringent. It seems to me it would kill germs rather than foster them.”

Cameron Diaz Talks The Media's Contempt For Single Women, Totally Nails It

“Well, like it or not, it is reality that if a woman is straight she is often judged by her ability to form and keep relationships. It's a basic part of being a woman. Married women are respected far more than single women...by both women AND men. Single women are "pitied" and 'assisted' as long as they're under 40, singles over 50 (particularly divorcees) are left to fend for themselves and are often told "you don't need a man, you're doing fine on your own" or why would you want to get married? Enjoy your freedom!" Freedom, scheedom. If a woman has been alone for a very long time (5 years or more), that 'freedom' gets old...and the reality is that it's not fun always having to go out alone all the time! No we may not "need" a man, but what if we WANT to find Mr Right and eventually have a big white wedding and live happily ever after (just like the same women who keep claiming we don't "need" a man while they go home to someone every night? I agree that no woman who is single and "looking" should be made out to appear somehow desperate or pathological, but nor should we be pressured to deny what is in our hearts: the natural desire to find and love one special man and to have that love returned by that one special man for the rest of our lives?”

“I think it's funny that you say married women are quote "more respected." Because the reality is, anytime I meet a woman (especially a woman in my age group) who is married my first thought is generally: "Wow, she has low self-esteem."

Of course, I'm sure a lot of people don't feel the way I feel. But I just had to point that out because "respect" is the last feeling I'm motivated to have around a married woman.”

“Thank you! I recently turned 50 and while I am happy with my own company, I would prefer to have a life partner. I notice that as you get older, there is an attitude that you shouldn't want such things anymore -- especially from people who have them (and know how hard it can be to stay married).”

“I question how much of that 'natural desire' is put there by cultural expectations and media (over)saturation. Biology isn't always destiny.”

Marcy Everest on Jan 29, 2014 at 18:59:59

“Please Sabrina-- speak for yourself only. You certainly don't speak for everyone else! It is not necessarily a "natural desire to find and love one special man..." You sound like someone from a Mad Men episode! Many single women of all ages are perfectly happy NOT having one "special" man to spend the rest of their lives with. Some of us are perfectly happy having friends (some with benefits) but without major relationship commitments-- we've been there and done that and prefer a different set of priorities in life that put other things higher on the list-- like professional achievement, the independence to travel wherever and whenever one wants to, the peace of enjoying a life that is personally independent, not having to be "beholding" to anyone else, etc. This may be impossible for you to understand (and you are welcome to whatever in life makes you happy-- you go girl), but some of us just like to paddle our own canoe and not "have" to deal with anyone else in the boat. We have great relationships with friends and family and life a full and exciting life without a "special man."”

“Sure, why not? I've always enjoy Ms. Hawn's movies. Hopefully there'll be enough appropriate roles for her. That's the problem with Hollywood. They tend to favor the younger actresses, but yet the British have produced very good and watchable film with older actresses in leading roles. High time we Americans start to do the same.”

“Nor does size prejudice like yours. SKINNY people get sick, too, you know! I'm fed up with the self-righteous attitudes of some who want to single out one segment of people for judgment who they have absolutely NO FREAKING CLUE what their actual state of health is. So unless you're that person's primary care physician, you are on the outside looking in...and your opinion is worthless!!!”

Daniel Jay Soule on Aug 30, 2013 at 14:50:27

“Well my reactionary friend.. I own a medical clinic that happens to evaluate these patients and prescribe care.. so I'm not exactly on the outside looking in and I review with them their lab results.. so I do have a freaking clue. Are there skinny sick people.. sure, but far more sick obese people. It's a fact, not a judgement. Obesity is related to an increased risk of just about every disease from diabetes to alzheimer's, like it or not.”

“The last few hours before my wedding? I was COOKING! We decided to try to save $ by hosting the reception/open house at our apartment, so there I was up at 6 a.m.on my wedding day frying chicken and preparing other foods for a 2 p.m. wedding with reception following. My (now-ex) husband was washing and cleaning the car and the rest of the house lol Gotta admit I was exhausted. Our friends, bless their hearts, surprised us by taking us out to dinner that night so at least there was no worries about cooking then.”
