Ask the Editors: So There’s This Racist…

Q: Recently, a childhood friend (who I hadn’t seen much in the last several years) fell down on their luck and I offered them a free room for a month while they got back on their feet, with the intention that they’d find a job and become a rent-paying roommate. That’s all fine and good. My concern is that I think they might be racist. Read More Ask the Editors: So There’s This Racist…

Ask the Editors: Facebook Fiends

Dear Editors: A lady who is a very distant acquaintance (and I’m not “friends” with her on facebook) is using my deceased father’s photo as her Facebook profile image. Read More Ask the Editors: Facebook Fiends

Ask The Editors: Hair, Hair, Everywhere

Greetings, kittens, and welcome back to another roundabout session of Ask The Editors, where we dive into the ethos of the Persephone question game. This week, we are talking about a subject that most ladies seem to deal with once they move into a certain sphere of life: hair–what’s professional? How will we answer? Who knows? Seek the answers you wish to find below, as we expend our collective knowledge on frizz, pigtails, and what the hell “professional” hair means. (Frankly, we still aren’t all that sure.)

Ask the Editors: It’s a Threefer

Hello, friends! We’re back with another addition of Ask the Editors, where our team crowdsources answers to your questions. Before we dig in, I want to take a moment and talk about what kind of questions we answer.  We’re not professional therapists (well, Luci is, but she’s not YOUR therapist, probably) and as such, we’re not comfortable or qualified to handle the really tough stuff, and it would be both irresponsible and just plain wrong for us to try. We’re no substitute for talking to a professional who can devote his or her attention to your specific needs. If you’ve got a serious issue, please consider talking to someone who can really help you, instead of a group of ladybloggers. While our intentions would be good, you know what they say about the road to hell.   Read More Ask the Editors: It’s a Threefer

Ask The Editors: Everyone in the Pool!

Today’s Ask the Editor’s question is time-sensitive for the LW, and it came in a little late to take it to our panel, so I thought we’d open this predicament up to our glorious commenters. Read the letter and help us help our fellow Persephoneer, after the break. Read More Ask The Editors: Everyone in the Pool!
