I love every baby I have ever met and want to meet more. I also really worry about friends who are planning on having kids because it’s an opportunity to “really care about someone other than yourself.” Like, if you don’t do that pre-kid, I’m not sure you should be charge of raising a human. Also, makes me rethink the Read more

I agree that psychologically humans don’t want to be isolated from one another, but I would also say that human psychology should not necessarily be guide for how we choose to do things. There’s a lot of maladaptive stuff that’s part of human psychology that we’re constantly in the process of unlearning in order to be Read more

It really is incredible that the concept of a 14-day incubation period doesn’t click for so many. Also maybe not surprising given that we’ve become so used to instant gratification.

So...I’ll say what I say to men on the street, on the train, at work, who have a problem with what my face looks like when I am just minding my own business, getting the job done, maybe navigating a situation that’s actually really challenging for me (which is my and my business alone), and sometimes simply relaxing: Read more

The scariest thing to ever happen in women’s bathrooms is when you’re in middle school and you need to poop but you know there’s a group of mean girls washing their hands and you can’t be 100% sure that the poop is gonna be silent and you consider putting your feet up so they can’t identify you.

Disillusionment does not necessarily equal not voting for him. Heck, I’ve never *not* felt disillusioned about the DNC’s pick, and yet I still vote for whoever wins the Democractic primaries. Many of the people I know who were dissatisfied with Trump still voted for him because they didn’t want to vote Blue, but did Read more

Seventy-four million people didn’t storm the capitol. I’m betting there are ‘tons of people in those millions who just voted along party lines. Trump was trash, but there’s a big difference between sticking with your usual partisan choice and storming federal buildings.

Everyone I know who voted for Trump was disillusioned with him almost a year ago when they saw his ‘leadership’ in a global crisis. My guess is most of these people have wanted a violent outlet ever since they saw a Black man in the White House, it wasn’t just Trump or alt-right politics, it was the permission to Read more

I love that she did this as a response to early menopause. I’m taking notes.

I love that she rationalized not including very many voices of color because she was only writing about her actual clientele, for it highlights the fact that accessing therapy is really challenging in communities of color. It was then, and it still is now. Good on her for sending out those copies. I hope she mentions Read more

It’s almost like Ricky Gervais was pretty much correct in all of his “over the line” appearances as the host. He has literally said this every single year.

There were so many bizarre moments. I’m am staunchly against Allen and have believed Dylan from the outset, but the way Mia Farrow seems to collect children and demonstrated that she could not adequately protect them from an abuser also makes me really sad. Yes, she was also a victim of his manipulation, but she set Read more

Femur fractures typically happen with a fall. If I had to bet I would say she was 1) somewhat out of shape from the pandemic 2) playing a sport/exercising 3) stumbled. This is how a healthy 18 year old I know fractured a femur playing tennis recently. In older adults it’s much easier to predict and prevent, but with Read more

I’m wondering if once he became a teetotaler he got hooked. Soda seems to be the go-to fix for people who are trying not to drink, and I guess choosing diet makes it seem healthier if you’re drinking it a lot?

I think in terms of just basic morals, you listening to the music has no effect on anything (other than your own ears/brain), so there isn’t really a moral breach of any kind.

Seeing a lot of sweeping generalizations about ‘Texas’ and ‘Texans’ being responsible for this man. Let’s not forget that there are plenty of people who have been working their butts off for decades to make Texas a livable place for BIPOC, LGBTQIA, women seeking autonomy over their bodies, and other oppressed groups.
