This is the video that convinced me to download TikTok. It will always be one of my favorites.

Right!? Are Trump and Pence not planning to “play politics” from now until Nov. 3? Bitches please.

That’s because she’s nouveau riche, not old money.

Completely agreed. Her biological father is apparently not around (I don’t know if he’s actually a deadbeat or just has an airtight legal agreement stipulating that he’s never mentioned on their shows) and Kim & Kroy have been together for 10 years, since Brielle was a young teenager. He seems to be a good role model Read more

Just from the thumbnail image and headline, I honestly thought the couple in question were the Falwells, and I’m so disappointed (in a very schadenfreude kind of way) that it’s not them.

Exactly. And it happens everywhere - NYC is just bigger so the pot of money is bigger. (I also suspect that, just like our “most segregated school district in the country” title, we would probably be in at least the top 10 of “most racist police force in the country” group too, if such a study were done.)

So, Kentucky taxpayers are paying for this settlement, and there’s STILL no police accountability? It’s the same old song and dance as always? I don’t want to say Breonna died in vain, but this isn’t justice. Read more

So glad someone posted this video - it’s a classic.

Well, there’s no way to know what’s in her head. If she’s realized and resigned herself to the fact that he’s guilty, then shame might be another motive behind her actions (or lack thereof). She’ll never say anything about it publicly, that I’m sure of.

I think that at age 94, she has a very different perspective on what she considers catastrophic. I figure she probably assumes it’ll blow over if they tuck him away somewhere quiet for a while. Airbrushing him out is the easiest way to ensure relatively few negative comments on the social media accounts. Read more

Well, GOOD. Because I have an argyle sweater vest that I have held onto for more than a decade now, and a few years ago I was wearing at my Wall Street job and one of the IT guys (!!!) said it was uncool to wear sweater vests. I obviously did not believe him, and in fact rolled my eyes at him because I was NOT the Read more

Andrew is her favorite, I’d be shocked if she ordered him to comply. (Presumably she believes his denials, as is often the case among family members.) Charles and Andrew do NOT get along but I still have a hard time believing he would “turn him over to the authorities” in any meaningful way - it’s probably more likely Read more

At least she’s not being blamed for the wildfires??

Not so much “blamed” as “had several news cycles devoted entirely to their imagination of how awful she is, specifically in order to distract from Andrew’s crimes.”

That may not be entirely true - from what I understand, indigenous women* around the world practice belly-binding both during and after pregnancy. During the pregnancy it helps relieve some of the pressure of gravity, like fastening the chest and waist belts on a hiking backpack. Read more

I mean, I get it - his kids are biracial and his daughter was publicly doxxed by the NYPD when she attended BLM protests after Floyd’s death. I’m sure everyone in his family has received credible death threats multiple times. Read more

Yeah, the biggest problem - as I see it - is that the cops who refuse to wear masks even when asked politely or shamed, are the same cops who are going to target POC for violations. I guarantee we will see photos/video of an unmasked cop ticketing a brown person for not wearing a mask. Read more

Ah, the link clarifies a lot - you were also mistaken about whether it was hormonal birth control in question. 99% makes way way way more sense if you include condoms and pulling out.

Fascinating - my mom had severe endometriosis and had to have both ovaries removed in her mid-30s (I’m not sure if they were able to save her uterus) (also I’m adopted), and she stopped producing estrogen and has been on HRT ever since then despite the known risks. I’m so sorry your endo wasn’t cleared up by your Read more

I don’t think 99% can possibly be accurate, just given how many people I know from my Catholic circles who don’t use it (including myself - I prefer condoms because I’m a bit twitchy about my fertility as a single 34-year-old), but “most” is certainly correct.
