    In The Pipeline: A clean bill of health for neighborhood
    Several weeks ago, I wrote about Machelle Murray, a local mom who is struggling to find answers about her insurance coverage as she battles cancer. The column prompted an outpouring of advice, support and even money for Murray. It also brought several...
  • Workers need help with elder care

    Workers need help with elder care
    About 1 in 6 workers has elder care responsibilities of some kind, and given longer life expectancies, that share is likely to grow. Workplaces have spent a lot more effort responding to employees' child care rather than elder care needs, but...

    'Bully' review: Increased awareness is only the beginning
    **1/2 (out of four) Few understand Sartre’s “Hell is other people” line like kids who find themselves on the wrong end of bullies’ aggression. I know what it’s like. You know what it’s like. If you went to junior high,...

    Dan Savage's MTV sex advice show pushes conservatives' crazy button
    In reviewing "Savage U,"  MTV's  sex advice show featuring Dan Savage, I predicted that it was going to be a culture-wars lightning rod at some point. The show debuted with an episode set at the University of Maryland April 3. Well, it didn't take long....

  • Savage Love: Sensitive Subjects

    Savage Love: Sensitive Subjects
    I'm gay and a junior in high school, and I've had a boyfriend for a year. (He's one year older than me, Dan, so relax!) We are out to our parents and everyone is supportive. We are not bullied or suicidal or using drugs. But we are frustrated! We had...
  • Savage Love: Fetish Firewalls

    Savage Love: Fetish Firewalls
    I am a 25-year-old gay man. I consider myself very gay-positive and self-accepting. Although I have always accepted my homosexuality and never really felt bad about it, recently I have been going through a hard time psychologically because I'm exposing...

    Savage Love:  Monogomish
    Why do most people assume that all nonmonogamous relationships are destined to fail? Because we only hear about the ones that do. If a three-way or an affair was a factor in a divorce or breakup, we hear all about it. But we rarely hear from happy couples...

  • Savage Love: Santorum Mess

    Savage Love: Santorum Mess
    I am writing to thank you. I remember reading your definition of "santorum" — "the frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex" — when it first appeared. I remember thinking it was a cute way to make fun...

    Savage Love: 13 and Out
    My 13-year-old son came out to us this morning. He plans to tell his brothers in the next few days. We love and accept our son, and this news isn't surprising (but when will the stereotypical neatness kick in?), but we do have some concerns. He has,...
