  • Outside the Lines Moving Down the Street

    After four-and-a-half years, the Outside The Lines: Books For Critical Minds (6297 Quinpool, 422-3544) bookstore is picking up its political texts, guides, children's books, quality fiction and free-thinking tomes, and moving a few doors east, to the former location of Kung Fu T-Shirts. "My lease was almost up, the building was sold, there was a rent increase," says owner Bob Haywood, offering reasons for the change of address. "The usual sorts of things." In our hazy memory of the t-shirt and kitch shop that was Kung Fu, it seemed a lot smaller than the current location of Outside The Lines.
  • Safe words

    If you and your partner want to enact rape fantasies, make sure to lay down ground rules: safe words, written consent; even better, record the agreement, just so everyone knows the boundaries.
  • Abandon all cash

Love the way we bitch

  • Tabby Genocide

    To the fucking twats that have hit two cats on Summit Street in the past 5 days- a big, fat FUCK YOU! Do you not have the fucking courtesy to at least knock on SOMEBODY'S door, or even to just fucking stop?! It's a small neighbourhood- someone will know who's cat you just massacred. And slow the fuck down! There's kids here, too. Will you stop and ask around when you hit one of them?! ---sad
  • Who Am I Now?

    My son grew up and left home. Nobody warned me he'd take my entire identity and all of my happiness with him... and he's so far away. What am I if not Mom? Nobody warned me about this. I hate my life now. Why don't we hear about this from other women before we think procreation is a good thing? It's horrible! I don't even want to feel better about it. I raised a great kid who's independent. I'm considered a success by my peers. I feel I've died inside. WTF? ---wasAmom
