Dammit, you chucklefuck, your intentions were perfectly clear. You wanted to hurt and embarrass a total stranger because some stray gross impulse darted across your lizard brain and being a white male, you never even thought to resist or question it. You honestly expected her to find that funny or at least “laugh it… Read more
Right, I understand that. I live in a predominantly white area, so I don’t usually care or expect anything other than white people (which is not a problem by any means). But my gym is very community oriented, so it’s kind of sad not to have the opportunity to meet other nice black people in the community.
I don’t think she would disagree. But saying, ‘everybody needs to find balance and I’m no different’ is true for ...everyone, no matter how wealthy. It doesn’t say if it’s easier or not for some because the sentence is short.
I would like to emphasize the FOR EVERYONE part of this statement. Federal workers and the military are far from everyone in this country, and the Republican plan to “let” people pay themselves from their retirement plan is a steaming pile of garbage.
I remember seeing the ad on TV and being more interested in what Peloton is rather than any thought that the husband was being an asshole.

Totally disagree with the pushback over this ad. People like to excercise, it’s different than giving someone a vacuum. I would love a Peloton for Christmas! The fact that the woman is skinny should have NO BEARING on whether or not she should excercise. The guy is an actor (presumably not super succesfule) that ended… Read more
The point people seem to miss is that in the “classic model” of early stage startups (such as there is one), the people working 80-hour weeks have equity stakes in the business as part of their employment package. When that’s the case, you’re a part owner, so it’s not unreasonable to expect that you’ll do what is… Read more
So I just wanna say that Atlanta is my hometown and fuck Clint Eastwood for using something so horrible and devastating to demonize the media.
Emily, thank you for your take on this, it is refreshing. I have worked in abortion care for almost 20 years and the NYT piece reads like underground anti-abortion trolling. The authors are overly-engaged in the comments section, agreeing with everyone who is criticizing the pro-choice/left movement. I also know… Read more
