Ask A Pair of Polyamorous People!

As you may have seen, two of my friends recently appeared on The View to talk about polyamory. The interview was poorly conducted, leaving them little opportunity to delve into the complex issue they were brought in to discuss. So I've invited one of those two experts to answer whatever questions you smart people… » 11/03/13 7:20pm 11/03/13 7:20pm

Ask a...Homebrewer

I've seen some interest in homebrewing on this site, and thought it might be fun to put together a "beginner's guide to homebrewing" for anyone interested in dipping their toe in the waters and maybe brewing up some fab summer beers. Homebrewing is great if you're looking for a hobby - and I guarantee it'll make you… » 5/31/13 10:51am 5/31/13 10:51am

Ask a Massage Therapist

Ladies and gents, I have noticed many, many people on GT asking questions about pains, muscular complaints, headaches, etc. Every time I read one of these I feel compelled to GIVE ALL THE ANSWERS because I've been a massage therapist for 8 years with a wide range of experience, and it drives me crazy that I can't… » 5/16/13 4:22pm 5/16/13 4:22pm

Ask a Woman Who's Been Homeless

There have been a few interesting conversations around the topic of homelessness taking place here on GT, and since I've experienced it first hand, I thought I'd do a sort of AskABlank post. So if you have any questions (stereotypes, street/shelter life, addiction/mental illnesses, resources), feel free to ask a woman… » 5/15/13 10:22pm 5/15/13 10:22pm

Anyone wanna play "armchair vet" with me????

So I'm home for a bit and my poor 13 year old dog is poor and old and sad. All she does is sleep. Her skin is saggy and she's thin (she was always slender, but now she's skinny) her back is slightly hunched and she walks and sits like she has arthritis (she gets medicated dog treats for this). None of that compares… » 5/02/13 8:14pm 5/02/13 8:14pm

Ask a foster parent

As some of you may have gleaned, I'm a foster-to-adopt mom of a tween girl. I am certified by my local county. I've been fostering for a year and the adoptions papers have been filed with the court so we were are just waiting to get a date from the judge.

AMA: Ask An Ex-Mormon

The recent AMA threads, and the article about the Mormon couple who got married, and then had sexual problems in their marriage ( has inspired me to do my own AMA. » 4/24/13 5:28pm 4/24/13 5:28pm

AMA: Community College Edition (MrsMonarch is Curious about Teaching…

In the comments section of an article, MrsMonarch and I got to talking about the Community College instructor's experience. She wanted an Ask Me Anything; I just wanted to get out of the comments section so others could function. We're carrying on here for the time being.

I'll be headed to class in approximately half… » 4/24/13 3:02pm 4/24/13 3:02pm

Ask a First Nations Woman

So, now that I've figured out the tagging system I figured I'd do an ask a blank. I'm a member of Kyuquot-Checleseht Nation and the Maa-Nuulth Treaty society, I'm of mixed ethnicity and I didn't grow up on reserve. As a person with " a foot in the city and a foot in the bush", I've developed a unique perspective and… » 4/23/13 10:34pm 4/23/13 10:34pm

Ask a Soldier

An active duty female Chief Warrant Officer in the Army, to be specific. I wanted to do this AMA (ask me anything) for awhile now to help clear up misconceptions and stereotypes. I will answer any and all questions, but this isn't the place for arguments about foreign policy or the defense budget (though if you ask… » 4/23/13 3:38pm 4/23/13 3:38pm

Ask-a- devout, brown Christian Jezzie

Don't know if anybody has any questions about this, but I feel like the former-christian experience is a popular and well-discussed topic around these parts. I thought this might be a good AMA for those people who are curious or are interested in hearing from the reverse angle. » 4/23/13 1:36pm 4/23/13 1:36pm

Ask a raw feeder

Have you ever been curious about feeding your animals a BARF (Bones and Raw Food) or species-appropriate diet? Although I am certainly not a veterinarian or animal nutritionist, I do have about 10 years experience feeding cats holistically. I have spent many years as a moderator for an extremely large raw feeding… » 4/21/13 3:51pm 4/21/13 3:51pm

Ask a family living with PTSD

I thought I'd toss this up here after reading the thread about AMA requests. I'm a former Army wife, married to a vet with serious PTSD. We have two young kids, I work full time and he attends university on the GI bill full time. We're struggling and managing (most days) to deal with the complications that come from… » 4/21/13 2:19pm 4/21/13 2:19pm

Ask a sorority girl

With all the bad news coming out of Greek Life the past few days, I thought it might be nice to have something a little different and let everyone ask questions of a real, live sorority girl. » 4/20/13 1:42pm 4/20/13 1:42pm

Ask a Winegeek

So, you Groupthinkers probably know me as the gleeful purveyor of gummi reviews and baked goods, but in fact, the field I'd dare to claim any kind of expertise in is the vast consumption of the fermented juice of the grape. » 4/15/13 5:41pm 4/15/13 5:41pm
