“What a garbage article. Among other things, "five weird extracts", really? Ginseng, green tea, rosehips, guarana, and stevia (while not things that I put in my own tea) don't strike me as particularly "weird".”

“Quit pretending like you're not the bride, it's so obvious. You should have grown up before deciding to get married. What YOU fail to realize is that Tanya and Phil showed their love and support when they showed up. They gave you a hard earned gift in return when they owed you nothing, and you not only failed to thank them, but through your twisted logic you turned around and bit them! The fact that you chose to spend so much is no fault of theirs. Are you really so shallow that you would have preferred that any friends with no money not come at all? Or would you instead perhaps prefer they bring their own can of Alpo and sit at the kiddy table?”

“So you ARE the ill-mannered bride, then! I do plenty of hosting myself, and the number one rule is that you NEVER expect your guests to pick up the bill. If you can't afford an event without breaking your guests' kneecaps, you should plan more within your means. I pity your self-centered, materialistic mindset. By the way, in an "inexpensive family restaurant" I can get away with a bill of $6 per person, and that's about how much the meals at my wedding reception cost.”

“Maybe I am too sensitive about it, but my resentment about being treated like a child is compounded by my short stature and childlike face. It's just another way that I'm condescended to on a daily basis.”

“Another one of my favorites (as a 24 yo married woman) when I say that I do not want children is "Ah, well, you have plenty of time..." as if it's a forgone conclusion that I will want kids someday. I know that a lot of people change their minds, and I'm not excluding the possibility that I will. However, that comment makes me feel like I'm viewed in a childlike way and that they know my future desires better than I do. I have never wanted children. I am very happily married, and am in a position where I could if I wanted to, but I love doing the things I want to do. I love playing video games, I love taking my dog for a walk, I love knitting for hours on end, and I love doing all these things in peace and quiet with my loving companion. He's enough for me to love, but that doesn't seem to be enough for others.”

“Maybe I'm just not as sensitive but when I was a single working woman and my coworkers or friends would tease me about wanting kids some day when I said I didn't think it was in the cards, I would just tease them back about when they were going to have more. When did everyone get so sensitive?”

“Say it right back to them and see how they like it: "Ah, well, I bet you'll change your mind about wanting kids, too. There's always boarding school, right?"”

“She doesn't look like a man. She looks like a woman in her natural state, and she's not going for a "look", she's trying to be comfortable. Besides, who are you to decide how a woman "should" be? How is a woman's body hair any less hygenic than a man's? Having to shave from the waist down constantly is frustrating, time consuming, uncomfortable, unessecary, and sometimes even painful. Kudos to this woman, and shame on you for making judgements on something that you have no understanding of.”

“The line of reasoning in this article literally makes me sick. When I post something on Facebook (which is to say, rarely) I expect everyone I have friended to be able to see it. I have the settings set to not allow non-friends to see any of my posts or info. If the government is monitoring my phone records and emails, there isn't an "opt-out" button. I'm not even supposed to know that it's going on, and that is morally wrong. There are no terms and conditions for me to check. If I say something that they find questionable, they will scrub all my records. Then what happens? We don't know that part, or what may happen in the future. Our fourth amendment rights are being violated. We have the expectation of freedom from unwarranted searches.”
