“[Agonizing and heartbreaking” “the golden-tinged cells” -this kind of phrasing plays right into the anti-abortionists hands. It doesn’t communicate the reverence for life that these people seem to imagine it does.
I’m with you. That part made me bristle. I have not ever been pregnant, but I have always been very certain I don’t want children. Obviously I can’t 100% guarantee what my feelings would be, but it feels hard for me to believe I’d agonize over it.
It’s such a bullshit thing, the way we present abortion as a society. Laws are made to restrict access because the perpetrator of the crime (let’s face it, people who want restrictions think it’s a crime) “might feel guilty” about having an abortion. No one has suggested that waiting periods for gun sales, say, are… Read more
Seriously this response was so rude and condescending, i have you know that English is not my first or second language and i do have difficulties with writing, but i thought maybe people would not judge me or mock me. It is nothing to do with my education or public school reform, this is also the Internet and really… Read more
I don’t understand how expecting someone to sit down and do some research about a sensitive issue like this is unreasonable, especially after the example you’ve cited. In fact, it’s a huge disappointment that he wasn’t self-aware enough to do that the hundred other times he’s done stuff like this before. Read more
Grayson Dobra, 2, celebrated his birthday this year with a theme party. The theme wasn’t Bob the Builder or whatever…
I don’t think that a 6-year-old is mature enough to be in charge of a toddler. I think I”m in the minority here.
I’m hoping it does, but I can say after the first three episodes I still don’t give a single shit about anything that’s happening. My husband looked at me last night and started laughing because I must have been making a face that was completely annoyed at the entire thing. Which really sucks, because I really, really… Read more
Honestly, don’t bother. It’s boring as shit. I watched the first episode and about ten minutes of the second before realizing I don’t care about one character or plot line. Or do, and let me know how wrong I am.
Uff, this is such a terribly condescending article. As an Indian urban woman from a city, I find her tone patronising to say the least. I have no desire to defend the deep patriarchal mindset that most Indian men, and several women, in my country swear by - but c’mon, this is ridiculous. She goes to a semi-urban part… Read more
Sure, but the director used the word “femininity” and more specifically, suggested that foregoing heels would be a “surrender of her feminity”. That ruffled my feathers.
“...I very sincerely was looking to make a real badass action heroine who doesn’t surrender her femininity in the process of being a badass action heroine.”
How narrow a definition of “femininity” do you have to have in order to think that the feminine female femme musn’t wear flats/boots while running from a T. rex?

To be fair, “Two Legs Bad” IS a fairly blatant attack on Taylor. Orwell even got the rest of Animal Farm to mock her music
Call it a brovalanche.
Like when Thoreau went to chill for a bit on the backlot of Emerson’s property.
