It's lovely to be a feminist and all. I have gotten in plenty a tizzy over the inequity of the female role in this bizarre universe. Have even tried out the independent, "A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle" track, and been quite good at it. Eventually, however, I settled upon this conclusion:Heather writes in About This Fish:
This fish needs a bicycle.
If not for comfort, at least for entertainment's sake.
This is not about man-chasing or desperation. It is rarely even about dating. It's about me deciding that I can be well-educated, independent and happy and still see the need for someone else in my life. That's not desperate; that's real.

THE SITE: in 2002 thisfish.com began as something of an anonymous venting session -- internet style. you can see not much has changed, excepting the anonymity part. on april 27th, 2004, thisfish.com leapt out of the closet and onto page 131 of the bastard on the couch. thisfish.com thanks editor Daniel Jones for his continued support and a shove in the right direction.
Visit This Fish often!
