As Dan Savage always says, it’s always the homophobic ones that have something to hide.

And 2% is still 2.9 million more votes. Gore won the popular vote by barely 500K votes. She was only 3 million votes short of Obama’s 2008 numbers and her 2016 numbers still beat McCain’s.

“It’s not only him, it’s the culture around him. It’s his leadership team. It’s his prominent supporters. It’s his online Bernie Bros and their relentless attacks on lots of his competitors, particularly the women...he has permitted this culture.” Read more

Yeah. Eventually they worked things out and are now closer than they’ve ever been, but that took years. It’s possible that AH’s brother feels that way now about his sexuality, but again, I doubt he reacted like a patient diplomat.

One of my closest friends was outed this way. His older brother caught him in bed with another dude. The brother lost his shit and punched a wall. They didn’t talk for like 6 months while still living in the same house. Read more

I don’t know. There are plenty of abused kids, boys and girls, who grow up to be straight. And plenty of gay and bi adults with no history of abuse. Read more

It honestly surprised me she was only a tiny blurb in the series. That’s one thing I would’ve done differently. I would’ve dug more into her career and asked for a statement. The other journalist at least did say “you just don’t do that” but the producers could’ve done more. He killed himself 2 days after her Read more

I kept thinking about Dan just being the only source. I was hoping they’d have another guy come forward because Dan’s been the most vocal about it. Kudos to Dan’s dad though. To sit through that interview next to his son and acknowledge he may not have been supportive before, took some guts. Read more

Yeah I have no interest in football really, but the podcast was great because it told his story through other people’s interviews and it wasn’t so sportsy. They focused on how his dad abused him, how the NFL took advantage of him, how he could pretty much do anything he wanted because he was a star player, etc. etc. I Read more

I just heard about this and can’t wait to watch it this weekend. I listened to the Boston Globe’s Spotlight team’s podcast series on him last year and that was pretty riveting.

It’s Obama’s glow, but maybe also because he’s been around for a while and isn’t from Vermont.

Ashley is a full blown BernieBro and she’s the one writing most of the political stuff for Jez. I mean, that whole office is full of them, but she’s particularly annoying because she gaslights readers into thinking she’s just a chill progressive.

My biggest guff was how she kept putting the spoons upright to rest on the dutch oven. Lady! All the raw chicken juices are flowing down the handle. Read more

You can do both. One just has vinegar and grains. She was kinda just dumping everything in though. I forgot it was supposed to be a “Latin Lover” dish or whatever. Read more

She had the tomatoes opened and ready to go. I don’t understand why she didn’t have the mustard and the other spices ready. And yeah, she used like a nickel’s worth of spice/salt for that amount of rice and chicken. I would have tripled some of the quantities. Read more
