Ha yeah, while I definitely have thoughts about her relationship with a man who knew her from when she was a child, it’s an entirely normal human emotion to think of someone who played a significant role in your life and what they would think of your decisions, especially after they pass away.

I get along great with my family, because we all live in entirely different places. My brother, my mother, my father and I all live in 4 different countries, with only my brother and my father on the same continent.

Yes I have to say, I am really sick of seeing Jez linking to the Daily Mail. If no one else has a story on it yet it’s probably because they are actually taking 5 minutes to talk to the appropriate people and write something marginally intelligent. Let’s support actual journalism, please.

Most large, cosmopolitan cities around the world cost well over $500k for an apartment on the small side.

I fully agree that humans shouldn’t be treated like commodities. I’ve not said otherwise and your overblown and nasty responses attacking comments I’ve not made are making you sound unhinged.

Everyone including celebrities deserves to be left alone, and I haven’t said otherwise. I am absolutely empathetic, but I’m not particularly full of sympathy.

I would argue that very few celebrities are anywhere near the most talented at what they do, and that they are famous because they wanted to be famous. Acting, singing, etc. just ended up being their path to fame, hence why so many celebrities are happy to do something entirely different from what they were initially

Interestingly, if the mother had simply waited instead of contacting the relatives of the sperm donor, there’s probably a good chance they may have reached out to her first.

You seem confused as to what is being discussed here. We agree that the mother in the article was out of line contacting a relative of her sperm donor.

My partner did the whole 23andMe thing. While I am vaguely curious to see if my ethnic heritage might turn up any surprises, I have zero interest in knowing before I have to that I am inclined towards having some serious incurable illness in the future, and I definitely don’t think it’s a good idea to sign your

I totally agree, and to reiterate, I am not defending the people who do it. They are being rude and disrespectful.

I mean she’s handled it well and I have no doubt it sucks to hear people talk about you like that, but (to your point) it’s also part of choosing to be a public figure!

I have friends who are serious greenies about a ton of things in daily life (composting! making various products to avoid packaging! severely restricted diet choices!) but have had multiple biological children, which I have to admit I struggle with. It may seem harsh to admit it, but adding more people to the world is

I didn’t start flossing until I was in my 20s, but I never had a cavity before or after (I turn 40 this year) so that could be fair.

She’s a typical kid raised by parents who were there to take advantage of her. By all accounts her mother was the real stage mom, but clearly her dad was along for the ride in the early years. Any parent who encourages their child to prioritise chasing fame is a shitty parent as far as I am concerned, if my daughter

I think the fact that we live in a world where a defense attorney would even say something like that as if it’s remotely valid is still a solid reason to get fired up.

I’m less concerned with humanity and more concerned with the rest of the planet.

I tried to read it that way but it was just not remotely funny so I figured that couldn’t be it. Jezebel has been trying to help make Halsey happen for a while now, so I wondered if it was part of that push.

This comes off as really bad spon con, or maybe some weird satire that is going way over my head?

Just responded to TeenaBurner to explain my stance. It’s admittedly a very personal one and not one that I necessarily expect anyone else to agree with!
