Even when I was young (80's) the magic of fancy department store lunch lingered. I remember my mother getting a salad with apples in it and I thought that was just the fanciest thing!
In Detroit we had Hudson’s and it was glorious, they still had elevator ladies in little hats until the day they closed. (mid 80's)
I mean JK just did exactly what you’re so upset about to Stephen King when he tweeted that Trans Women are Women. So maybe take your crocodile tears and specious arguments on over to her twitter and let her know how you feel, or is it only when people show solidarity with the trans community that you get so twisted?
I don’t want to hear a word from Ellen right now but I’d respect her donation to any bail fund, the ACLU, or any organization that’s helping.
Same for me. I was here before Kinja and even though I’ve probably aged out of their demo I just can’t find anything to replace it?
I’m in Michigan (where this happened) I even had my daughters at another branch of Beaumont. This isn’t even the only story about something like this here I’ve seen this week. Beaumont’s hospitals are located right in our worst infected counties and they have quickly developed a reputation for fucking up badly. There… Read more
Sometimes the best thing people can do for each other is not be together. Especially when kids are involved.
How am I in the grays after commenting here for 10 years?
I was a geeky only child and Molly was really my BFF for a few years. The accessories of that time for the dolls were truly of AMAZING quality, but also fragile as fuck. there wasn’t a bit of velcro, plastic or a zipper in sight. I can’t even imagine what the cost would be to manufacture some of that Pleasant Company… Read more
Anyone with basic anime familiarity recognizes that face. I get that it’s the “O” face but I’ve seen characters make it about food, new video games, and people. It’s just standard anime short hand for “Oh fuck yes I am in to this” in a lot of cases.
It’s not just hentai. I was an anime dork in my teens (many moons ago) and recognized this face immediately. I’ve never seen any majorly explicit anime, just the main stream stuff available at the time. Anime overall tends to skew “horny” just because it’s not only for kids in Japan and cultural sexual norms are a… Read more
When my daughter was 6 and started public school for the first time she came home laughing about a funny thing they did at her new school; the teacher would play a game where they all had to squeeze in to the bathroom and be as quiet as they could for as long as they could. She thought it was hilarious, her teacher… Read more
Fucking fuck the pregnancy industrial complex. I spent two pregnancies sandwiched in expensive ass body pillows to keep myself on my left side despite everything in my body wanting to sleep any way but that. The amount of “musts” about pregnancy and motherhood that are directed at women when they’re already insecure… Read more
I work at a predominately black business, most of the employees are black and most of the customers are black, I’m not on some fucked up journey of racial understanding, I work there because they cut me a pay check weekly. Am I thrilled to hear daily hot takes from a perspective I would not normally get in my suburban… Read more
I do not understand how anyone, let alone someone who headed Planned Parenthood could think that A. People who hate abortion also deeply care about OTHER women’s healthcare and B. That those same people can be Jedi mind-tricked into being ok with Planned Parenthood if we just say “pap smear” enough.
People love to relish a villain. Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, Tony Montana, Mr. Burns, and Draco Malfoy all spring to mind as oft quoted and having a fanbase.
