  1. I always love your posts and this is my favourite one ever! I've already seen the game of thrones pug version but so glad you included it! pugs are my fave thing ever, so is got! put them both together and ahhh! i've opened most of these up now to have a good browse!

    I got called a slut after I had sex with my boyfriend of two years for the first time! And many other times just because I come across as one apparently. well cheers everyone haha!

    Haven't read this OCD link yet but i posted about people who don't have phobias saying they have a phobia of something, and mentioned thatg it's similar to people being like "oohh i'm soooo ocd" when they're not and how annoying it is for those of us who do have these mental problems!

    1. Pugs are just the best!

      I don't get called a slut that often, probably because I've found myself a nice group of feminist friendly friends but also because I have a 'girl next door' look about me (which automatically means I must be a good girl and only like my sex vanilla :P)

      I also live with a phobia (and from your most recent post it looks as though we have the same one) and it really grates on me when people who clearly don't one, say they do!
