The local public health department put out this infographic (granted it’s about the AZ vaccine). Honestly those stats are scary when you see them like that. Covid is no frikkin joke and people calling it the flu make me so mad. Just take the vaccine :/

You mean how Covid itself causes weird and deadly blood clots? Along with 1/3rd of survivors being diagnosed with a neurological or psychiatric condition months later? Yes, I’ll still take my chances with the vaccine. https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/2020/04/22/coronavirus-blood-clots/

My dad doesn’t eat pork and when he gets any kind of southern food with white gravy he has to ask if the gravy has pork in it. They often look confused, and I’ll pipe in with, “Did they use bacon or bacon grease to flavor the gravy?” They always have to ask. (And I think Popeye’s uses ham hocks or something like that Read more

So....you point out that they appeared out of the woodwork, with a weirdly polished image and social media presence, making carefully focus-grouped “edgy” music that is neither novel nor particularly edgy.... Read more

Yes, like there are health reasons to avoid sugar other than weight control. I come from a long line of people with various pancreatic problems, sugar (and booze!) are not good for me!

She knows that gluten-free and sugar-free have been huge trends for years now and literally all dining establishments (ESPECIALLY in LA I’m sure) have these options?? Also not hating on sugar-free and gluten-free, just pointing out they’re ubiquitous now. Did she just crawl out from under a rock?

I like what you wrote, but I can’t ‘yes’ on the one hand. The idea that the only leftist cred is in being the least powerful in sight only serves to derail leftist causes before they begin. Read more

Yeah, this whole piece made me roll my eyes repeatedly and reminded me why I stay away from activist spaces. Every time I’m tempted to go back I read something like this and I remember how insufferable these people are and how it all boils down to sour grapes and fragile, hypersensitive egos. This is why there’s so Read more

I think that the awkwardness comes from two people boosting their own fame by using the work of others. People turn up to speak at their mutually supportive retreat, but the result of that is a video that promotes the founders while stripping the names and identities of the speakers (reducing them to effectively job Read more

Agreed. It’s a shame that female-helmed startups/nonprofits are often heavily scrutinized and under a microscope. I’m all for accountability but a “couple” “anonymous” voices discussing what is essentially a startup doing its best to grow, find its footing and all for the good of climate change make this come across Read more

Yeah, I could see some contributors being a little miffed, but since they say the compensation was good and nobody's upset enough to go on the record...

The temptation is often there to try and boil complex issues down into simple feelings, especially in online social spaces that invite commentary. Easy answers can’t be trusted.

Some of the self-promotion and "brand building" feels kind of gross, but I also recognize that that's just how a lot of stuff has to operate now with social media. I certainly wouldn't feel comfortable doing it, but I can't really blame them for trying to take advantage of momentum while they've got it.

Unlike many commenters here, I typically have patience with the Kardashian family. They just don’t get under my skin much. But this shit is beyond the pale to me for some reason. I guess I hit my cap. The idea of a 37 yo woman hopping on Instagram live to “prove” her body actually looks a certain way is INSANE to me.
