Re: “Grease Box, Phat Beets, and the 'G' Word

The "G" word, is it? Gentrification, oh, no! Now, there's a racist, classist concept. Except that, when the "oppressed" group bullies the "dominant" group, it doesn't count as an "ism," does it? I am SO ready for all the stupid race and class squabbling to be OVER - am I the only one? Corporate America, and those in power, those with whom most of the nation's wealth is concentrated, they just love this. Divide and conquer, just keep us fighting one another over the few scraps they toss at us.

Re: “Enema Kits and Missing Clits

Although I agree that enemas, using bio-friendly substances such as pure water or saline solution, are harmless, and even beneficial, I am concerned that this doctor seemed to miss an important point in the enema-using lady's letter. She said she was using soapy enemas. THAT can be hazardous. I hope she is at least using a gentle castile soap - and not something toxic like a detergent or "anti-bacterial" product.

However, at best, even gentle soap is unnecessarily harsh on the colon, and to say it may "change the balance of bacteria that normally live in the colon and may make one more susceptible to changes in bowel movements" is a classic, professional understatement. Cramps, anyone? Colitis? At worst, putting detergent or too much soap in the enema solution can actually kill a person. Surely the doctor knows this - was her response edited for space?

Anyway, if the enema is being used for sexual pleasure, I don't see the need for any soap at all. Soap is to help someone poop, usually by irritating the colon, and I consider it a "last resort" kind of thing. What is wrong with pure, warm water, or saline solution?
