Seriously. By all means his ex wife probably has a new partner by now as well. Why is it always assumed that male stars are some big prize and their ex wives are lost forever without them. Of course when female stars split it’s like “Aw, this sad lady...will she ever find true love?!”

I think if you want a plantation wedding, you should really commit, you know? You should have the house darkies and field darkies working away; the sounds of screaming people being whipped; children being torn from the arms of their mothers that are being sold to another home miles away; the smells of open toilets and Read more

What context?  You don’t know the full extent of her remarks. Nor do you know the full extent of her thoughts on YA novels or other novels targeted towards teen girls by authors other than Dessen, since it seems like she was just asked how she got to be on the committee that was the subject.  I do not have a Read more

And? That’s the target audience for Dessen’s books, right? Is it always internalized misogyny to say a particular author’s books are good for their intended audience of teenage girls but not good as thought provoking required reading for college students? You can read into her comments a thing she didn’t say, i.e. Read more

Because he’s an actual leftist and they share the same anticapitalist values.

Totally with the MTA-angst guy. You made me look up from my crossword, you’re throwing this racist shit around IN THE MORNING, and you are making us late? Please, bitch, you’ll be lucky to get out of this car alive. Read more

What’s the point of Ben even? I liked him well enough but if he’s supposed to be husband material, then I think we should have had more time with him and maybe less time at the telethon? If she’s not going to marry him and leave him (even though he would probably be fine with her career), then I don’t really see the Read more

Spoken as always like someone who doesn’t do the barest of homework. I know this is hard for you to comprehend, but ATL UTD would be the 4th biggest draw in your beloved La Liga. United players aren’t pretending to be Atlanta big shots, they are Atlanta big shots. Read more

Why are the people who are always talking about the ‘master’ race always such disgusting examples of it? Read more

I know that sex crime is far more about power than it is about sex. Still, it is amazing to me that a man with virtually unlimited access to naked women would continue to fetishize their visual nudity to such an extreme.

I couldn’t disagree more. Go back to your cheating husband, all the while cheating on your fiancé? That’s our heroine? Nothing about the ending was good for any character. I don’t understand why Midge would WANT to get back together with a man who cheated on her. I was hoping she was better than that. What’s to say he Read more

Episode by episode, this is one of the best shows in years, but the season as a whole has been a bit sloppy with doubling back on character development and uncharacteristic choices frequently coming out of nowhere. This episode seemed to very much exist to setup season 3 (as opposed to neatly closing off season 2), so Read more

Yeah, it was an uneven finale at best, and that’s how the whole season was for me. It hopped from thing to thing so quickly that nothing seemed to develop organically. The brother is in the CIA? (why?). Mom ran away to Paris? Midge gets demoted and promoted and serves as a wedding planner for a coworker whose wedding Read more

It’s incredible that she’s speaking out. My father sexually abused me. I am sorry to say but in my experience, by having a supportive uncle she has more support than most parental sexual abuse survivors have. I really hope he’s there for her and hopefully the publicity will mean she’ll get more support. Read more

I read the entire MPR report. It is excellent, well-research, and Laura is completely believable. The abuse she suffered is almost diabolical - her father skirted the legal boundaries, but still satisfied his own base and destructive urges at her expense. Almost like he knew just how far he could go before he ventured Read more

Say nothing, and get excoriated. Say something, and get ignored. We cannot fucking win.

Let me guess, throughout the years he’s had females vouch that he’s been “nothing but respectful” to them, and therefore can’t have acted inappropriately (by that I mean immoral and evil) towards his daughter/any other female.

Oh my god, that poor woman. But also, what a bamf. Good for her, and I’m glad that she seems to have at least one or two supportive extended family members--what she’s done takes an incredible amount of strength, and she deserves to have a life full of good people around her.
