There are a lot of straight white women that are pro gun and voting for pro gun candidates. Just because they’re not shooting doesn’t mean they’re not a big part of the problem.

I can’t argue with anything except I think we need to clarify cisgender straight white men. As far as I’ve noticed, the other white men aren’t murdering folks like this.

There’s yet another factor. Throughout much of my life (I’m 61) the bulk of my possessions consisted of books and records. I no longer have any records—or cassettes, nor, if I had my way, would I have any physical CD-ROMs. Everything fits on my laptop, and sounds better than it did on LPs. I could (at least Read more

It’s also some straight-up misogyny. Oh, you’re gonna use a female name to denigrate a dude who doesn’t dude the “right” way? And you’re different from the hypermasculine bullies how, again?

I would not do so. Outside of the ethical implications of attaching something like this to kids so young and potentially opening them up to social media abuse and that kind of attention, there may be legal implications in taking photos of other people’s kids and posting them without knowledge.

Very true! Field Roast sausages can apparently be refrigerated for over 2 months; try that with a beef or pork product! And almond milk lasts much longer than dairy milk too. Read more

If you think vegetables taste bad, acquaint thyself with spices. Cumin, curry powder, chili powder, garam masala, and many more will enhance the flavor of vegetables so much.
