I support putting Eleanor Holmes Norton's face on basically everything, so I am A-OK with this plan. I have similar feelings to yours—not loving the mural but also being really conscious of my position as a middle class white lady in this conversation. Honestly, I'm kind of surprised the mural hasn't already been… » 1/26/15 10:51am Monday 10:51am

I'm pretty sure that the elements of the ACA that make it, well, the ACA (staying on parent's insurance until 26, no exclusions for pre-existing conditions, subsidies for middle-class, expansion of medicaid (where done), etc.) are popular when they are asked out individually, but when you bundle it all together and… » 1/21/15 10:44am 1/21/15 10:44am

Wait, wait, wait! I thought we all agreed we didn't care about their stupid boners? Was there a meeting of Feminism that I missed? Were any other votes taken? We still get to be killjoys to frat boys everywhere, right?? » 1/08/15 2:30pm 1/08/15 2:30pm

Look, I'm not always a fan of some of the new-agey nonsense you hear from some doulas, but a trained midwife is actually quite useful, and would likely have been very capable of handling the situation had a doctor not been on hand. Though doulas sometimes have a rep for being too weird/crazy/nature-focused/whatever, I… » 12/09/14 11:44pm 12/09/14 11:44pm

Okay so you are clearly a wrong person full of wrong opinions (except when it comes to pumpkin—you could not possibly be more right about that), BUT I greatly admire your soup-related rage, so I will forgive you for thinking egg drop soup is anything less than disgusting liquid garbage. » 10/22/14 6:24pm 10/22/14 6:24pm

I still have KP, but mine was REALLY bad when I was in junior high (exactly the time you want to have noticably bad skin, right?). I didn't wear shorts or sleeveless shirts until I was about 21 or 22 because I was so self-conscious about it (and was made fun of for it my my class's mean girl). But I will say that… » 10/12/14 11:42pm 10/12/14 11:42pm

I had a similar moment to yours re: rage/violence. I didn't experience DV. but my step-mother has hated me (and acted on it) since the day she married my dad. I never considered it abuse, though, because she was never physically violent. My therapist also had to explain to me that rage/screaming/yelling are violence.… » 9/24/14 6:22am 9/24/14 6:22am
