Topic Request: Polyamory (Blogathon 12/49)

If you don’t know already, you can request topics for me (or JT later) to write about! When you donate on the SSA webpage (link below) there is a place for you to request topics from a specific blogger. Feel free to leave requests. The bigger the donation, the more likely I or JT will [Read More...]

Doing So Well Already! (Blogathon 11/49)

Since 6am this morning (7am EST), we’ve had 13 new donors and we’ve raised over $750 for the SSA! Holy cow! Let’s keep that up, shall we? In honor of this awesome progress, I’d like to propose a way to embarrass JT. JT likes to think he’s tough. This is funny because he’s the cuddliest, [Read More...]

I'm Not a Morning Person (Blogathon 10/49)

If you’re just tuning in: This is Michaelyn writing for blogathon! Remember, you can donate and request topics for either JT or me to write about. The bigger the donation, the more likely we will be to write it. You can also pledge per post, per word or per thing you learn. Keep your eyes [Read More...]

I'll Miss You, Andy (Blogathon 9/49)

As you probably know already, Andy Samberg is done with Saturday Night Live. I know I’m going to miss his humor for sure. I was reminded of this just now as I was browsing Facebook, and a friend had posted this video. I’ve seen it before, but it still makes me laugh out loud. I [Read More...]

Fifty Shades of Dumb (Blogathon 8/49)

***Spoiler alert*** I talk about characters and some of the plot from the first book in the Fifty Shades of Grey series. This post is also a little sexually explicit, so deal with that however you’d like to. This week I broke down and read Fifty Shades of Grey. If you haven’t heard of this, [Read More...]

Why Student Groups Matter (Blogathon 7/49)

Coming into college, I wasn’t religious, but I never said the word “atheist” when describing myself. If someone asked me about my belief system, I would talk around the subject saying how it’s really impossible to know anything for sure. If it was someone I trusted, I would call myself an agnostic because that seemed [Read More...]

My Turn! (Blogathon 6/49)

Why hello there. Michaelyn here! As you might be aware, I’m a bit fond of JT.  From now til uh, later, I will be blogging every half hour for today’s blogathon! Woooo! First, how about I introduce myself? Yeah? Yeah! [Read more...]

Orly Taitz: only genius on earth (Blogathon 5/49)

JT here!  This is my last one for a bit.  But I’ll be back later today! Orly Taitz, the birther loon, is running a campaign for office out in California that seems to be held together by duct tape and bubble gum.  Actually, just bubble gum.  Duct tape rules. She just got her clock cleaned [Read More...]

The first cause argument (Blogathon 4/49)

JT again!  Don’t worry.  Michaelyn is taking over soon, so you won’t have to put up with me for much longer. On Saturday, while Christina was blogging herself into insanity for the benefit of secular activists, she wrote about the argument for god that most vexed her. I had a really hard time with the [Read More...]

Why the hell should you donate to the SSA? (Blogathon 3/49)

JT again! I guess I should tell you why the SSA is awesome so you have some incentive to give us your house (if you’re unwilling to part with your house, a donation will suffice). Greta has a list of great quotes up.  You can certainly check that out. I also wrote a piece last [Read More...]

Discrimination, lying, and faith, a polyamorous marriage made in heaven (Blogathon 2/49)

JT again! Last week PZ pointed out that, in response to a marriage equality bill getting passed in Washington, the faithful were turning to petitions as a means to display their love for the sinner through discrimination. And look at this: faith in Jesus isn’t keeping some of them from lying. The secretary of state [Read More...]

WWJTD Blogathon: do it for the campers (and the SSA)

JT here!  I’m going to start off by announcing our big hook for the day.  Right now the total number of donors for SSA Week sits at 213.  w00t! I want it to be 300 by 7am tomorrow when the WWJTD Blogathon ends.  I want to see how many people support this cause enough to [Read More...]


Christina here… Whooo!!! As much as I love blogging, doing it for 12 hours straight is a little mind-numbing. But now that I’m done, I don’t want to quit. What do I do now? Actually get off my computer? I don’t even know. It’s like I just got off work, but don’t plan to leave [Read More...]

How do you tell them you're poly?

Christina here… Question! Alex says: June 9, 2012 at 7:04 pm  (Edit) Since you offered to answer questions… what do you think is the best way to let people you’re interested in dating know that you’re poly? I’m new to the poly thing and I’m struggling a bit to decide how best to do this. Answer! Depends. [Read More...]
