And didn’t part of her tweet rampage last night basically include calling Midler old and Moretz an unknown? She can disagree with whatever the hell they said about her but then she stooped. She’s not better than.
I was the passenger in that situation where they wanted me to trade an aisle seat for a window seat, I specifically choose my aisle seat because I’m claustrophobic, have the bladder of a teacup and overweight. It works better for everyone for me to have an aisle seat. Read more
As a not-fat person, I don’t feel better that you have chronic pain, nor does it comfort me that you feel bad too, nor do I believe it’s my decision whether you exist on “my” planet. I don’t give you a second thought until you’re in my lap. Can you fit into the seat you bought? If so, great. If not, buy another. It’s… Read more
If you can’t afford to situate your child properly on the plane, you can’t afford the trip. People are idiots.
Asian women half my size have almost killed me with their lack of orderly lines. Shopping or trying to catch a train over there is a terrifying experience.
Because that’s their seat and they don’t want to move, not any nefarious family-hating reason I am sure.
I’m having a hard time feeling sympathy for this white teenage girl who trademarked “This Sick Beat,” especially since in context I get such bad second-hand embarrassment for her I immediately have to switch channels.
I WAS a nurse and have a ton of anecdotes, but it’s been a long day to recount and write about it. I will say that so many of my co-nurses are able to put their “feelings”aside, and some can’t. Then some think they could but their feelings came bubbling to the surface in unhealthy ways. Read more

Nothing is worse than being handed yet another patient or getting handed mandatory overtime… Read more
There are days in nursing that I look at the janitor, and wish i had his job.
We chose to run this series of posts as a follow-up to our interview of Allysha Almada because nursing is a field that is dominated by women, a lot of them working-class women of color. We wanted to draw attention to the specific issues that workers in this particular field face—rampant lack of respect, sexual… Read more
“The Truth Hurts” is a campaign going on in Ontario right now. It’s meant to draw attention to the flaws in the system and to the problems nurses like your mother endure every day. Your mom deserves a rest, not to mention a decent retirement.
Fuck nursing. I mean, nurses are great. But much like teachers they are getting the shaft. My mom is an O.R. nurse. (And, frankly, a badass.) That profession ruined her body and has given her nothing in return. She’s in her 60s and only works part time these days (Thankfully, out of loyalty, not out of need. My dad… Read more
Good luck to this lovely nurse. As a nurse and union member (and rep), I can’t express how important being a union member is for this profession. Although I’m Australian, and our industrial relations system is vastly different to yours, I wanted to let you know that my union (Australian Nursing and Midwifery… Read more
