Perhaps for the countless caregivers out there feeling lonely, isolated, hopeless and destroyed and not knowing how to put in some self-care while they’re taking care of their loved one. I’m sure he knew there would be backlash, but this is an important discussion to have, especially with our aging population.
So that others being caretakers who feel isolated can see a different way. That they don’t have to adhere to societal pressures about what is “right.”
This is a needed perspective. Thank you.
Thank you for this compassionate response and I hope others listen to you. I think people forget that being a caregiver, especially with Alzheimer’s which can go on for years and years with no hope for a cure, can be devasting. They deserve happiness and help. I see nothing wrong this, it is not a betrayal of love.
I’ve ridden the NYC subway system pretty much 7 days a week at all hours for the last 30 years and I’ve never seen anyone masturbating. However, long ago, a disheveled panhandler came through my subway car with his penis exposed. I was standing and gave him a dollar and said, “You’re kind of...hanging out down…
And you type well for someone who’s never gone past 6th grade
2/10 homophobic troll.
The Thin Blue Line Act essentially makes police officers a protected class—similar to minorities, LGBTQ people or women.
Well, thoroughly wetted and then scrubbed dry with a towel will approximate “clean”. It works for him, so why knock it?
He sure seems to like linking to anti-Semitism and alt-right stuff. And likes saying the n-word. And it’s not as if shitty people can’t raise money for charity (especially when it’s other people’s money!). Saying the obvious “people aren’t all good and all bad” always acts as if the good is supposed to outweigh the…
Because age is measurable and gender identity isn’t. While both are rooted in psychology, I mean I’m a guy who likes guys and I’m not really sure exactly why, I just do, but there’s an objective measurement for age. Like literally you just count the number of years from the day you’re born. That will be your age. What…
Because age is a unit of measure and gender identity isn’t. Sure, he might “feel” like 49, I’ll humor him on that, but that doesn’t change the fact he’s been alive for 69 years. It’s like me demanding to be legally as tall as Kobe Bryant even if my height is measurable as far from it. You can’t really measure gender…
Actually liberals are the best readers since that is directly referenced in the guy’s court filings.
The Roger/Mimi plot is, but Schulman argues in her book Stagestruck that Larson lifted the Mark/Joanne/Maureen plot (along with a number of other, smaller details) from her novel, People in Trouble. Check it out, if you want. She makes a very strong case.
I guess I’m just #blessed to live in our modern beer era. I’m glad your partner has finally seen the light!
I’m 30, so lined beer cans have existed for my entire life, well before I was legally able to drink. I’m calling the reputation “unwarranted” because Americans have had three decades to learn that cans are just as effective a package as bottles.
This one was the nicest surprise from my last trip to the comics shop. The kind of perfect symbiosis of art and writing that you always hope for in a book but rarely get.
Surely it’s “people with glass purses shouldn’t throw hands”?
Awful that it took so long, but from this article in the Miami New Times, it sounds like she didn’t call an Uber, he happens to be an Uber driver who was waiting outside the club to offer drunk girls a ride home. Aka, a predator.
