R4 I don't, because my aunt nearly died of toxic shock, and because they are bleached, and I don't want bleach in my bloodstream; I wear pads. R5 No. Good actor, but too weird looking. R6 Idris Elba, Benedict Cumberbatch, Nikolai Coster-Waldau, Jason Momoa, Armie Hammer, Chris Evans, and I wouldn't say no to Jude Law lately. R7 I'm a white GenXer - apparently that's the main criteria. R8 only next to a roaring fire in wintertime. With a little whiskey added to my hot chocolate. While wearing my grey cardigan. With my hair in a bun, of course.

LOL, R12. The only woman I know who has fibromyalgia is 65 years old. I am on the rag, though. First day, so I'm tired and crampy. R13, I admit to being a poor example of a frau. No kids, no ball and chain, still fit into a size S, and I think the Real Housewives are about as appealing as cancer. R14 I'm lactose intolerant, but that's about it. I don't do fad diets or "cleanses" - there are doctors and nurses in my family so I was taught that it's all bullshit. I have a sweet tooth (runs in the family), which I try to keep under control. I love dark chocolate, is that frau-ish?

R13, I've never owned an SUV. I drive a 20 year old Honda Accord. No car payments means I have more money to do my favorite thing, which is travel. I have friends in France, Denmark, England, Ireland, Canada, Ecuador and Nigeria. R17, I think Shawn is gay and Harry is bi. I love big strapping gingers, so it pains me to think that Sam Heughan is gay. Wasn't Richard Madden dating a really young girl a minute ago? I don't know about him, except that he's hot. R18 It doesn't. I wash with soap and water twice a day, drink lots of water and eat fresh fruits and veggies. No complaints so far; I invite you to take a whiff anytime. R19, this morning. I can only see the hair when I'm standing up straight though. Can't see the lips unless I bend a bit. I've got a neat package.

I do have one framed needlepoint that says HOME that my mother made when I was a child. She died young, so I can't get rid of it. It's a piece of her. R36, My dad lives in Nevada and LOVES Cirque shows. I've seen Le Reve and Ka with him. His favorite is O, which he's seen a couple of times with friends and visiting relatives.

R47 I do not hassle managers! I worked hourly wage jobs before getting my degrees. I have way too much sympathy for anyone in customer service.

In general, what kind of dick do you get? Are you often disappointed when they pull it out?

by Anonymousreply 5604/10/2019

R54 I don't bother with shopping carts. I show up with my reusable canvas bags and fill those up. I walk to and from my grocery store, so I shop for fresh produce several times a week instead of buying in bulk like a mom (as I am not one). I'm only feeding myself and the occasional houseguest; no need for tons of food. I'm petite, so if someone's getting bumped, it's probably me. I can squeeze through small spaces quickly though, so there's that. If I ever bump someone, I certainly say "excuse me."

by Anonymousreply 5704/10/2019

R56, I have never been disappointed by the dick itself, but by the man attached to it. Never seen a micropenis, but I wouldn't care if he was an expert with his tongue and fingers. I've been very surprised by a 5'6", stocky man with one of the largest penises I've seen, but he didn't know what foreplay is. That's always disappointing. I've attracted all kinds of men but tend to be drawn to the smarter, more average looking guys. Really hot guys tend to act like God's gift, which I have no patience for. I did hook up with one scorchingly hot guy who was wonderful; I was not surprised to find out that he'd been a chubby, bullied kid.

R68, I do not. I hate vocal fry. Cannot listen to the Kardashians; they make my ears bleed. R69, from the replies, I think it's been all men, so far. R69, I don't know any gay men whose families have been accepting from jump. I wish that was not the case. I have little in common with lesbians besides my biological sex. I know a couple, but we see each other rarely. They tend to be very insular. Not so with gay men, who tend to enjoy a more diverse circle of friends (at least, the ones I know). R71, I like Uncle Joe. I do think he is not a man with malicious intent. He was a dick during the Anita Hill hearings, but he's grown and changed since then. He was responsible for the passing of the Violence Against Women Act in 1994, and he spearheaded the Obama administration's efforts to reduce sexual assault on college campuses. I think his apology was sincere, and I think he's always been "that guy" who means no harm but whose privilege has left him with a few blind spots. I don't think he should run for President, but that has more to do with the fact that the Dems have the most diverse group of candidates in history. Why would I want to vote for another old white guy?

Nosy Parker here. Do you think Elizabeth Warren is wonderful (though probably not electable)?

by Anonymousreply 7404/10/2019

R72, I am 5'3 1/2", size 4. C cup. I've always been active and I'm not an emotional eater - when I'm stressed I eat less, not more. I guess I lose frau points for that. I read that fraus are GenXers; so am I. I do own mugs and I love comforters! I look great in earth tones, as I'm a ginger. I didn't realize that earth tones were a qualification. I prefer jewel tones. They brighten my complexion. My "tupperware" is mostly plastic Chinese food containers that I've run through the dishwasher. Great for packing work lunches. I do have a couple of those lock and seal boxes, which are fantastic, but I've never hosted, or been to, a party. I don't know what Pampered Chef is - I cook simple things and I'm not much of a foodie. I have a friend in the suburbs (complete with husband and baby) who has a binder stuffed with old Gourmet Magazine spreads. I bet she knows what that is. She's probably the one you should be talking to. Her fraudom is superior to mine.

by Anonymousreply 7504/10/2019

Not all female GenXers are frauen though. From what I gather, Fraudom is a state of mind, a sub-sub-lifestyle category, not something a fairy godmother bibbledy-bobbledy-boo endows you with; "here are your chin hairs and bifocals, your sequined sweater and plus-sized jeans and your 'Hang in there!' poster to put in your cubicle.

A lot of suburban moms really love that "Proud to Be an American" anthem. I call it the Redneck Anthem. They don't like that.

R94, No. I've gotten offers from a couple of spectacular looking women, so the opportunity was there but not the motivation. A really hot burlesque dancer kissed me at a New Year's Eve party once, and I didn't hate it, but it was just the spirit of the moment. That's the extent of my experimentation.

R102, 1) I went topless at a resort in Mexico while on vacation. 2) I was walking down the street at dusk, and some guy on the corner pulled his dick out of his pants and started following me. Women have random encounters with dick all the time, almost none of it good.

I do enjoy cradling the occasional mug, but I'm not at expert level. R98, I'm not into porn at all, really. I do enjoy erotic art and the occasional fanfic.

by Anonymousreply 10804/11/2019

R106, I've never squirted. I doubt it would add to the pleasure, as I already have multiple orgasms. It would just make a mess. R107 I find them alternately hilarious (there's always some truth to them) and horrifying (not that I expect gay men to know much about women). The word "cunt" gets thrown around very liberally on this board, leading me to suspect that a decent number of men here don't like women very much. But I already knew that gay men can be just as misogynistic as straight men. I suppose that we have little use for gay men except as surrogates or the occasional haggerati hanger-on. I've met plenty of gay men but would only consider one or two of them to be true friends. Of course, it goes both ways, with a lot of women obnoxiously using gay men as free fashion consultants or "dates" when they're single; expecting special treatment at gay bars that don't exist for them; and of course, the dreaded bachelorettes. That's got to be annoying since gay men have so few spaces just for them as it is.

He keeps his cars in perfect condition; I couldn't have found better at a dealership. 2) I drink tea; my favorite is darjeeling, and I drink it black, one sugar. 3) Not married. I'm super independent so if I were married, I'd love a few nights on my own every week. I enjoy poker too, though! He can go golfing without me. I hate golf; to me, it's not a sport, it's just people in ugly pants, walking. 4) I absolutely believe that you can make an accurate judgment on any human being based on the company they keep. R114, I have one framed needlepoint that says HOME in my kitchen. My mother made it, and she died young. It's a piece of her that I cherish. I don't do "motivational quotes" or the like. I have a friend who married an Evangelical guy - now she tapes passages from Scripture on her bathroom mirror. She was never like that before the ring was on her finger. It creeps me the fuck out!

Then you hashtag it #sundayfunday or #pumpkinspicelife. I have friends who do this every fall and I deliberately withhold my likes. I am not sure how this nonsense started and will be thrilled when it finally stops. I love pumpkin pie, but I hate pumpkin everything else - candles, cookies, candies, no thank you.

I don't listen to either, R146. I also hate yoga. I have done Pilates, but I'd much rather go outside and take a long walk. R147, it depends on the woman. We have a cervix, so a penis large enough to hit it is uncomfortable. I'm on the smaller side, but I have friends who are size queens. Men think dick size is so important, but being skilled with your fingers and tongue, and being a good kisser, is just as important. How you treat us out of bed is what gets us in the mood. Straight up fucking can become tedious if that's all you've got. I like variety.

For a snack in the afternoon, I will have a handful of chocolate covered almonds, or a packet of chips from the work pantry. I have a thermos of (decaf) tea on my desk that I sip from all day. For dinner, I might have a black bean patty over spinach with balsamic, a little bread with butter on the side. I might enjoy a drink at night, like wine or some whiskey, to wind down. I eat whatever I want on weekends - out with friends or whatever, because my work days are healthy and low calorie.

Yeah. You’re pretty much a hep chick, so instead of grading you on a frau curve (which you would fail miserably), let’s go ahead and use the cool curve and take points off only for frau slips:

Out of a possible perfect score of 100 in the coolness scale, you get:

-2 for being lactose intolerant (somewhat frauish, though not as bad as fibromyalgia which would have cost you five points)

-1 for the dander allergies (would have been minus five for each of any crotch dropping of yours that had it, a scenario that would have resulted in magnified frau behavior in your part)

-3 for the occasional mug cradling by the fireplace (one point for each colder-weather season)

-2 for your penchant for sweets.


A solid A-minus in the coolness chart!

Well, that sounds scientifically conclusive, R236. I appreciate finally knowing for sure. You guys are hilarious and this has been a blast.

I think women who donate an egg to a gay couple so they can have kids should get child support payments for the rest of their natural lives as they are half the DNA of the offspring.

I wonder how much an egg costs?

OP, only a few posts into this thread you described yourself as something like no husband, no kids, no ball and chain. That is the antithesis of frau-dom and of course, you know this. Tell me, in what region did you grow up, were you raised in church or church-adjacent, and what is your ethnicity? You maybe that rarest of Frau-I-corns, the midwestern Polish/Bohemian reformed Catholic who is 45+ but “still believes in true love” and plans to adopt. How close am I toots?

$6,000 - $10,000, R239. Not counting the costs afterward (medical treatments, hiring a surrogate, etc). The entire process can easily cost $30,000 - $50,000 or more.

Are you the frau-iest frau that ever did frau?

by Anonymousreply 24204/26/2019

Please OP, can you give us a name or two of people that you believe are the very embodiment of frau-ism. Can be a real person or a fictional character.

Are you as horrified as I am that certain gay men on this board refer to children as woman's "crotch-fruit"?

Actually r244 I think it’s funny, and I’ve dropped three.

R240, I'm from the northern east coast. Raised Catholic by mostly non-practicing parents (although they wanted to have all my Catholic credentials like Communion and Confirmation). I'm white (Celtic background mostly). Not sure I ever believed in "true love." Good relationships look like common goals and a decent amount of work. Don't want to adopt either. I do enjoy being the cool aunt. R243, Chrissy Metz and pretty much everyone in Oprah's audience. R242, apparently not! R244, it's horrifying but also funny. Like Chris Rock said, "a cockroach can have kids."

she ain't a frau, just an attention whore

by Anonymousreply 24704/27/2019

She needs points deducted for thinking Shawn Mendes is gay.

R241 wait wait wait, back up. You’re saying gay couple will pay 5-10 grand for eggs with no childbearing required? If yes then what is the procedure and is it painful or potentially medically dangerous? AFAF

by Anonymousreply 24905/17/2019

R249 Yes, from what I've heard, it's uncomfortable to painful. Takes time, 1 - 3 months of procedures, frequent monitoring/blood work, ultrasounds, daily hormone and med injections, daily appointments for a while etc. Then requires surgery for egg retrieval and poses some risks. It's not simple like sperm donation which is why it costs so much more. They can't go into a clinic at a random time and have eggs extracted without preparation. Of course some couples use a known donor instead of paying for anonymous donor egg(s), a female friend or someone and they either co-parent some kind of arrangement (the cheapest route if everyone wants a parental role to some degree) or else pay her for being a surrogate only, no need to extract eggs as she is instead inseminated. But that too can take multiple cycles until success.

R122 I’m not a Frau (at least not according to the DL criteria) but to my shame I do have FUPA.

It’s a holdover from bad untested birth control medication I was given as a teen, and a bout of subsequent depression that saw me overeat and seclude myself and give up socialising/sex. I’m basically recovered from that now (took some years) but no matter how many gym sessions I do or miles I walk or calories I count (and I hate doing that, it feels frauey) my inches of flab hold fast. I feel so self-conscious about it that I can’t bring myself to date, or go to the beach, or go to bars and dance. My BMI is healthy, I’m active, I sometimes do intermittent fasts ad eat moderate & well the rest of the time...what else can I do?

It doesn’t help either that my body-shape is totally at odds with my identity (masc, androgynous lesbian).
