I say this as someone who adores cats, but this is why we need to start building guillotines.
If someone with a bajillion dollars can’t afford good enough skin care to stave off wrinkles and still smile, not a single one of us normal folk can. And we, quite often, have a lot less to smile about. Read more
Stephanie Winston Wolkoff is old money. She’s the adopted daughter of Bruce Winston, who’s the son of Harry Winston. She’s known for helping plan the Met Gala. She then started her own firm and decided to join this train wreck even though all her high society friends told her not to take the job. Now she’s under… Read more
It does. It is incorrect to say ‘be best’. It is either ‘be better’ or ‘be the best’.
It’s a little like death, though, isn’t it? My grandfather passed recently, and my mother (who has been his primary caretaker for the last decade - and it was a huge drain on emotional resources for the last two) was sad until the funeral, but has rebounded and is enjoying her life anew.
His son, who rarely visited and… Read more
I was thinking that, too. That’s also what I think brought on Britney’s breakdown.
I decided not to have children, literally because I wanted to ensure the cycle of abuse was broken, and I just couldn’t promise myself I would never ever do any of what my parents did to me. I know I would never purposely hurt any child, but I’m emotionally broken, sometimes, and I don’t know what impact that would… Read more
By the time I was 16, I’d endured years of: misogynistic tirades from my father who called me a prostitute when I was in second grade (learned a new word that day!); ongoing paranoia from both my parents that I’d have sex despite not knowing what sex was at the time (lower elementary school); bullying at school from… Read more
I was lucky enough to be believed by my mom when I told her my stepfather was molesting me and we left the next morning when he went to work. This poor girl, the betrayal of not having your own mother not believe you and put you in further harms way. I hope she gets the therapy and support she needs with trustworthy… Read more
More ghost stories should end with the ghost being all “Oh, my name is Drew”.
SoyJoy should be called SoySadness
The “Fitness Candy” trend really annoys me as it comes from the same kind of marketing BS that results in highly sugary juice being a “fruit source” and part of a healthy diet. Its not, its just a REALLY expensive snack bar that is barely better then a regular chocolate bar. Read more
Not big pig.
Its pro birth not pro life. I live in Ohio and have a daughter with Downs. I wouldn’t give my life up for anything but fuck all if the Pro Birth people are the ones that make raising her the hardest. Pre existing condition clauses, diverting money from schools that she attends to private schools that dont have to… Read more
I didn’t use to know much about late term abortion until I read this piece by Jia Tolentino, and it was quite an eye opener for me, each situation is unique, and no woman or doctor chooses to do it unless it’s a non viable fetus. Read more
Love that these people who are “pro-life” are the ones sending death threats. “We must protect life, it is sooooo precious, also I’ll fucking kill you”. Going, yet again, to show that their position fundamentally has shit-all to do with the sanctity of life.
