Salon Ends Broadsheet Blog, Announces Tracy Clark-Flory’s New Role

For many Frisky staffers, and Frisky readers, we’re sure, Salon’s Broadsheet blog is a daily must-read. A so-called “feminist” blog, Broadsheet has always been more than that — a blog about politics, sex, and cultural trends that just so happens to look at those subjects through the female lens. Now, Salon has announced Broadsheet will be no more. Which is sad. But we’re thrilled to hear that one of our favorite lady writers, Tracy Clark-Flory, who has been at the helm of Broadsheet for the last year, will still be writing for Salon but focusing on long-form original reporting on sex, relationships, and, we’d imagine, feminism. We’re looking forward to more of her insightful, thoughtful, and balanced work that never ceases to make us think. BTW, if you’d like to share your earliest sex memories with Tracy for an upcoming story, she’s looking for interviewees. [Salon] Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Is Obsessed With My 8 Pound Weight Gain”

I’ve been with my boyfriend for two years. Initially, he was the pursuer, but as time passed I fell completely in love. We were stable, playful, and even got a dog together. Starting in October, though, he started being shady: [at] bars all the time, getting too drunk to drive home and staying at his friend’s house (who happened to live with a girl who was a previous hook-up of his), lying about who he was with and just being sneaky in general. I panicked and clung harder than ever, became suspicious and snooped and only made myself feel worse. And then we moved past it and were happy again. Then, last Sunday, he said we “needed to talk.” I feared the worst: cheating? Breakup? Nope. He has been seriously preoccupied with my eight pound weight gain. He says his preoccupation is the reason for his distance, and that he’d hate for us to have to plan our lives around my weight gain. (You know, since being 5’6, 165 lbs seriously inhibits my lifestyle.) I don’t feel like it’s unreasonable for him to say something about maybe working out more, but blaming our relationship issues on my weight gain? Since he told me, he has been affectionate and loving again; he says he just needed to get it off his chest and now everything will be fine. But I’m pissed. Is it worth it for me to put up with his shallowness? I don’t think it’s okay to blame everything on eight pounds. Am I overreacting? Or should I MOA? — 165 and Ready to run

Girl Talk: I’m An Extreme Emotions Junkie

I came to a new understanding about myself recently. At my session last week, after hearing me go on and on about a recent bout of man-related depression, my therapist cut me off with a revelation. “You know what you are?” Dr. A said. “You’re an extreme emotions junkie. Some people are adrenaline junkies — they get off of some sort of thrill, like jumping out of a plane — but you get off on feeling really good or really bad. It’s what makes you feel the most vibrant, the most alive.” Keep reading »
