I think people are underestimating how quickly things will begin to change as vaccines start rolling out. The relief I’ll feel when my grandmothers, my husband’s immune-compromised father, my parents who work in schools, are vaccinated will be unreal. And the threshold for things going slowly back to normal isn’t Read more

I think that’s exactly Bernstein’s point - all of these people have said it privately and yet done nothing. Naming them is about shaming them.

THANK you. I’m seeing so much “Biden can’t win because SCOTUS will hand Trump the election now.” That’s not how this works. And that’s not just based on norms we’re hoping people will follow, it’s based in the literal law.

Well, not to excuse her because there’s still a lot of BS here. But I know plenty of people who have gotten less conservative once they moved out of our tiny town and saw more of the world.

They’ve done pizza, and it was dumb. They did them on a pizza stone in the regular ovens. Which, look, if you’re making pizza crust at home is great! But if you’re gonna do Neapolitan style on GBBO, shell out for a few of those backyard pizza ovens at least. Heck, the show keeps giving us clips of Laura and her Read more

Yeah that’s totally fair! I think because these people live their lives in front of a camera, it’s more that these kinds of photos are sweet and don’t use the baby as a prop, if that makes sense? Like if a famous but non-reality show person posted a full-on pic of a baby I wouldn’t think twice because, like you said, Read more

Maybe I’m a sap, but I love baby photos of the kind Yolanda posted. Teeny-tiny hands, feet, baby clothes - tell everyone you have a baby, keep the baby in almost total privacy. Win-win.

You know that... supporting the GOP.... isn’t *everything* right? Or is it really as much of a cult as it seems to be?

This is interesting because Dashboard Confessional is one of the only bands of this time that I can still listen to and not have the misogyny take all the joy out of it for me.

I’m assuming you mean because people are contagious before they show symptoms, which is true. But temp checks at least have the benefit of identifying and protecting from people known to be sick. And if those people are otherwise asymptomatic, and thus not checking their temperature, it might be their first clue as Read more

That’s how it worked in New Leaf, yeah. But you can tell whether you’d be disturbing a shark, since you can see their fins. So you can avoid that.

Basically, she’s arguing that in order to acknowledge gender-based discrimination, we have to acknowledge sex. Which is very stupid because part of acknowledging gender-based discrimination is acknowledging that gender roles are socially constructed, i.e. not inherently based on sex.

What you’re talking about is different from “open adoption” though, right? I thought open adoption was some form of contact or relationship with birth parents, not simply knowledge of who they are and the fact that child was adopted. A relationship is obviously very complex and works differently for everyone, but Read more

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