I am currently only reading or watching things that I’ve either read before or have a familiar structure - comfort food for the brain. Lots of lightly feminist romance novels. I just finished Red, White and Royal Blue earlier this week and LOVED IT, just so delightful. For what’s next, I’m trying to choose between a Read more

My frustration is in the lack of any public policy expertise in the response. All of our information is either coming from the CDC, which no one trusts anymore, or WHO/academics/epidemiologists, who are brilliant but not policy experts. In this situation, like in any situation, there’s gotta be a balance between the Read more

You know, I kinda like the other billionaire. I mean, not that he should be president and he DEFINITELY should not be running for president and it’s annoying that he is. But if he weren’t, he’d just be a guy who I thought was doing his best to do the most good with his resources.

Ooh! I’ve seen about a million commercials for that on Hulu and thought it had potential, but Mr. Toad was not into it. So I will give it a shot on my own!

I think it is not absurd to be frustrated and afraid about what the behavior of people who are supposedly on our side means for us even if we get rid of Trump. I am afraid that when groups of supporters feel that they can attack, belittle, demean and alienate everyone who thinks differently than them while going Read more

I didn’t say it was going to change their life, but I do think the comparison is asinine.

You don’t think there’s a difference between growing up with/being aware of the slaughterhouse at your farm and being unexpectedly confronted with it when you expected a day of fun? Come on.

At first I felt like yeah, this is a clearly bad idea that should have been rejected very quickly but is on some level maybe well-intentioned. Then I got to the statement at the end, and realized the idea was “You know what’s a great way to celebrate Black History Month? Direct people to white authors who were writing Read more

You also wrote from your weird high horse that even though you prefer Warren you’ll vote for Bernie if he gets the nom so you clearly have some understanding of the obligation to vote for the non-Trump nominee. Unless it’s a lady you don’t like I guess?

Exactly, as would everyone here I AM SURE. It sure feels like because we’re criticizing, and because we’re women, this dude is expecting we’re all going to have a hysterical hissy fit and not vote for Bernie if he gets the nom.

Just out of curiosity, where did you get the idea that anyone here wouldn’t vote for Bernie if he gets the nom?

Yes, exactly. The hosts are most important when things go wrong - Sandi brought some of the warmth Mel and Sue had.

Yes exactly! Do you feel like it’s different from the right’s victimhood complex? Because to me it feels a little different - that seems to stem entirely from the whole, when you’re accustomed to privilege, equality feels like oppression thing. Whether it’s reality based or not, they genuinely believe themselves to be Read more

I 100% agree with you but I think it goes beyond that - he tells middle- and upper-class white dudes that they, in fact, are victims too. We’re all victims of capitalism so we don’t have to look at our varying levels of other forms of privilege. A platform that is about justice - or pretends to be - has to center Read more

I like Warren, she’s what we’ve got. But it looks like she’s finding out that her silence in 2016 did not, in fact, protect her.

Listen, you could have bought something that makes noise or was remote-controlled, so you’re still very low on the petty scale of children’s gifts here.

Wait sorry I’m a little confused. Your mom got your nephew a Switch, which your sister also did. You got Switch games and accessories for your nephew, and a Switch Light for your mom? And your sister said no to both gifts, but is both the switch games + accessories or the gift for her son and your mom?

There hasn’t been anyone truly obnoxious in a while, but I do find the current champion kind of annoying if only because wtf is a “wine tasting consultant”? That shit is made up.
