    I mean, seriously,  who the fuck on this site is in charge  of playing 7th grade mean girl?

    As one who was not the prettiest,  slimmest, best-dressed, blondest, girl in school,  I'm kinda horrified that this discussion keeps going back to who is good looking.

    If people here can't get past that, we have not got the skills to model equality for our kids.

    It's not a fake orgasm; it's a real yawn.

      No one would describe her as pretty.  She is highly regarded by those she works with and very much enjoys her life.  The customers she works with are always sending glowing letters to her employers about how much she has helped her business.

      That said, in many ways it can be hard on a beautiful woman.  A lot of men cannot see past her good looks.  I remember going TDY and there the most beautiful woman I've ever personally seen. She was a lieutenant.  I was on the other side of the partition from her.  I could always tell when she moved, because the senior officers' eyes would track her every move.  She was a very nice person and was always comfortable around other women and those junior in rank.   We were never stationed together, so I don't know how her career turned out.
