Yep. Like the folks who say they don’t want gay people to adopt kids, because the kids will be teased in school and whatnot.

I’m a professor in an extremely male-dominated field, so I honestly just don’t have the energy to go directly from a 10-12 hour workday to yet another space whose attitude toward me ranges from amused to downright hostile. Maybe someday, but not at this point in my life.

I never competed at this level, but as a woman who trained for over a decade, this doesn’t surprise me in the least. It wasn’t until ~5 years after I quit taekwondo that I fully appreciated the depth of sexism and inappropriate behavior I’d experienced. As a teenager, I was training with men who were all 5+ years Read more

There were accusations against him a few years back, but it didn’t get very far. The lawsuit got thrown out, but I’m too lazy to research why. Read more

My mom and I had an epic (quiet) blowout in an H&M during Thanksgiving break of my freshman year of college because I was slouching and it made me look tired and wouldn’t I stand up straight?

My body is very sadly incapable of shitting on command, or this would be PERFECT!

This is not at all on the same level, but my college boyfriend’s roommate resorted to not flushing their shared toilet after shitting as retribution for...well, the reasons are unclear. It was weird as fuck. They had been friends, and suddenly the roommate was being shitty (lol) to him. My then-BF thought it was Read more

Shit, the longterm affair with Jennifer Fitzgerald was an open secret among DC folks. (My uncle was on the WH Press Corps for several publications throughout his career.)

My husband’s aunt is at least consistent - she doesn’t believe in vaccines for people OR dogs. Luckily, she only has dogs, but she tried to talk me into not vaccinating mine. Not a fucking chance, lady.

Milo whateverthefuckhisname is, a verified neo-Nazi, brags all the time about having Jewish heritage. Nice try, though.

A friend went to high school with him, and this was his take as well. Aaron was getting himself into plenty of trouble long before college or the NFL.

Oh damn - I saw some guys tabling at SJSU yesterday but was in a hurry, and I didn’t make the connection to this case. I’ll stop by and sign today, thanks for the heads up!

Yeah. When that study came out about how a small subset of men commit numerous rapes, I was like, yup. Sounds about right.

A similar thing happened to a good friend of mine in college. The dude only brought one friend in, rather than two, but still super fucked. The most horrifying part is that as soon as the guys had her alone, they moved QUICKLY, like they’d planned it in advance and had probably done it before. Read more

Kind of similar: my husband played against Jonathan Quick in high school during a tournament. They just knew him as “that crazy good goalie from Avon Old Farms” and didn’t put together that it was Quick until a few years ago. My husband’s team lost, BUT my husband scored on him twice (once in regular play, once in the Read more

That’s a really good point. Greys don’t have much following outside of people who adopt ex-racers, so we’ll be left with the AKC line, and we’ve seen how many breeds they’ve totally screwed up...sigh.
