No waitstaff wants to hear about your idiosyncratic dietary preferences! Just order what you can eat. Don’t make someone play a game of having to pick for you, a waiter doesn’t know all the ingredients of everything, or having to go running back to the chef to ask if pizza can be made with tofu instead of cheese.

I conceived spontaneously a couple months before we were supposed to start our first IVF cycle. Our insurance covered infertility treatments, including IVF (we were very lucky) so it was definitely the less expensive option for us. In the end I opted to only have one child and we didn’t use IVF, but I had zero qualms Read more

How dare she go by the name she wants to go by and name her daughter what she wants to name her. The nerve.

I don’t understand why she is berated for her compassion. Why do we assume the wives always know what their husbands are up to? Or that they aren’t suffering the same abuse at home?

Thank you. He was so good in those. I have met so many people who hate on The Departed but it’s one of my favorite movies because of Leonardo DiCaprio, and despite Mark Walburgh and Alec Baldwin going too far in their corny, bullshit emoting. I found The Revenant kind of boring but am willing to give it another try. Read more

I’ve been in these comment threads long enough to know that if she didn’t use that descriptor for her first child and then did call her black babies beautiful, someone would accuse her of fetishising or exoticising their colour.

How unfortunate that so many people are responding to this heartfelt piece with their own biases. Whether or not YOU find a religious congregation worth pursuing, whether or not YOU believe in God or faith is not the point. This writer does, and she should be allowed to express that and her disappointment in her Read more

In a world where people are more and more disinterested and cynical about politic, I think it’s specially important to have strong consumer protection. Pushing back against false advertising is an important part of this. The way corporation and company advertise and give information to the public should be regulated.
