tomboys are girls, too; by alisha karabinus

Sometimes I wish I had been born male. Just every now and then. All right, I often wish I had been born with my very own penis. There, Iíve said it. And how many women havenít felt the same way?

surviving; by elizabeth lawson

It begins with a kiss. Something that the magazines you have read your whole life tell you is wonderful, something that you have done many times before. An innocent kiss. You tell yourself that he could be the one. That this is healthy for you, that you must really like him because normally youíd have gotten sick of him after only a month. He constantly puts down your friends, and for that matter, pretty much the entire population of your college, your town, and the world, and you feel special. If heís hanging out with you, he must think that youíre different from all the others, better.

Itís all about the win.
