Doesn’t the idea that the fetus is ‘property’ negate the argument for life beginning at conception? If it’s a person, and you can’t own a person, you can’t it’s not anyone’s property?
Man, Nicole Eggert deserves a LOT of credit here. She basically knew that nothing would come from her allegations but opened herself up to a ton of scrutiny so that another victim’s case might benefit.
Oh it is definitely #allmen - think of the Morgan Freeman dialogue and relate it to men. In general, women are taught to be polite and think of other’s feelings in a way men are not. Men will let their opinion about a woman (her body, her dress, their reaction to her, her career, what’s she eating, etc) tumble out…
No, it is not. They are his rights (and remain as such for 70 years after his death), as represented / managed by his estate. The rights don’t belong to the private individuals who manage his estate.
Yep. Really love being told that my problem is “you need to stop being unhappy about being single and just accept it”. Like, why don’t you just fuckin’ come right out and say that I don’t deserve anyone?
God I love JLD and have admired her for years and years. Queen.
“Make new friends” is much easier said than done once you’re 25+, have a career, and live in a city like Los Angeles where people are skeptical of other people. Making new friends is just as difficult as dating, in my opinion.
To add to that: don’t just assume your SO is always welcome. They’re friends with YOU.
If you are coupled, don’t be a dick to your single friends. Try hard to make sure you still see them and hang out. That said, I remember when I was single and then became coupled or vice versa, I would realize the entire basis of a friendship could be that we were both single and literally had nothing else in common…
Jfc YES! i hate when couples have to do everything together. Do yall shit together too? it drives me bananas. yall dont gotta do everything together - be your own person
I know so many people having this exact same issue. They’re worried about going out in public alone cause they think they’ll look like a loser or a weirdo. It seems more loserly to me that you have to be attached to someone all the damn time. Go to the freaking movies!!! Go out to eat!! Have drinks at the bar!!! LIVE…
I’m not at all surprised that this meeting isn’t happening but holy shit THAT LETTER THO.
It is INSANE that she is 57. 57! HOLY SHIT. She looks like she is 40? MAYBE?
Dana wrote that amazing piece on “Against ‘Allegedly’”, Jezebel shared it... and then disappointingly, absorbed none of it. Which is a shame, because they were poised to be the model for writing about sexual violence without saying “allegedly”.
As a general rule of thumb, no reporter should ever use “alleged” as a descriptor - not ever. It is lazy and wrong; even when people think it is “correct” usage, it’s not.
Carry the weight of being the funniest characters on not one, but three entire comedy series on your shoulders.
I really wish writers on Jezebel would be more thoughtful about their use of “alleged.” Now, this isn’t a problematic usage, but it’s needless: “arrested for alleged disorderly intoxication.” She was arrested for disorderly intoxication. Now, whether that arrest will lead to charges and conviction is a different…
So blocking haters on twitter is illegal, but his 50,000 violations of the emoluments clause is okay??
