So, would we say that she’s the one who likes all Nirvana’s pretty songs and she likes to sing along, and she likes to shoot her gun, but she don’t know what it means?

Blake, it’s time to get a stylist. I know you think you know what’s what, but I’m telling you, it’s time to hire a professional. I mean, we all have teeth but I’m not about to do my own dental work, ya dig?

See this has always baffled me about the US system. I’ve done jury duty in the UK, and we are literally picked at random. It’s 12 names out of a hat, essentially, and you’ll get replaced if you, a) know any of the people involved, or b) have been a victim of a similar crime/other life event likely to seriously Read more

As a young woman around your daughter’s age whose father would definitely not want to have anything to do with conversations about sex, I can tell you I would feel a stronger sense of mutual respect if he took an interest in this stuff as it pertains to my well-being. He expects me to talk to my mom, and I do (to a Read more

I’m a pretty reserved person, so I tried very hard to not talk to either of my parents about reproductive health much. My mom clearly positioned herself as the point person on reproductive health during my childhood, but after they got divorced that division of labor wasn’t always viable. I will always be super Read more

I think middle-aged men see Trump as the living personification of their own stupider moments, which they don’t want to be held accountable for, so they defend him as a pre-emptive move to excuse their own behavior. Read more

At the very least he said “family and friends” instead of the old daughter/wife/mother/sister/aunt/niece/female roommate I had in college schtick.

I will never understand that - cotton and rayon aren’t exactly expensive. Sheesh.

I’m the weirdo that shops at JC Penney’s. They carrry a lot of petite clothing in larger sizes that aren’t frumpy. I can also get work pants that don’t need to be hemmed because they make a petite short length. A few weeks ago I got two dresses that people loved and last night I bought a ton of fall stuff from them. I Read more

We almost made it! I was right there with you until you went full #ALLFIREFIGHTERSMATTER in a discussion that is supposed to center the plight of incarcerated women fighting fires for slave wages.

The job experience is not applicable to one anyone with a prison record would be likely to get. It’s cruelly ironic that way.

Slave wages and hazards aside, I see this program as problematic because California wastes the opportunity to provide meaningful work opportunities to women who put their lives on the line and possess valuable skills upon their release. Their criminal records make them ineligible to fight fires post incarceration. Read more

Feeling good about the work you do and being in a better environment is worth a lot. I still think they should be paid more. In general I do not believe that we should pay prisoners less than minimum wage. Read more

I think fear of coercion should always be a guiding principle when it comes to inmates. This sounds like a good program, and I’m glad for the participants—I think I would far rather be outside working on something worthwhile than stuck inside all day bored. However, when the standard for volunteering for this type of Read more

Saw this yesterday and was delighted! I had no idea this guy existed, and it turns out he’s full of wonderful trivia like this! I write a lot of fanfiction for a medieval fantasy series (you can probably guess which one if you know my username) and now I’m going to be devouring his videos so I can be a more accurate Read more

I have to ask about your characterization about the MIDWEST. What states are inclusive of your assessment? I am asking as a resident of a state that has no dog in the hunt of confederate monuments, but will allow the judgement about commitment to college ball. OK, Nebraska. I said it.
