In fact, being strong is one of the reasons women stay far too long before they recognize what they’re experiencing as abuse. You think you can’t be in an abusive relationship, because you’re too strong to have allowed that...so it has to be something else.
I really enjoy the portrait of Obama; the colors are so vibrant and as a result the man himself comes off with the kind of inherent warmth that we know he exudes in real life but that a serious portrait would likely fail to capture. By painting him with a very serious expression against a background of vibrant green…
Another element of himpathy is the push for forgiveness and healing — sometimes literal days after the action. But when people say “forgiveness,” what they really mean it moving on, being over the transgression, and never mentioning the incident again. We’ve become so focused on that, that we don’t realize that…
When the U.S. Supreme Court handed down its 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision, a young white mother near Wilmington, North Carolina, received the news with resolve to circumvent the ruling, using “nerve and plenty of hell in the personality.” Mrs. Hugh Bell organized the Pender County Association for the…
“My Joshua Tree post, in particular, was mocked online,” White told me. “That’s one of the potential downfalls about writing personally online, especially when you’re a woman.”
I was a big fan of Ripper Street until my fav character was killed off (I have yet to watch the final season where he is absent). In the first season, that the memory of the still-unsolved Ripper murders still haunted the local law, while not being dealt with directly, offered an interesting twist on the subject. I…
I’m basically up for anything with Luke Evans in it (even the awful Dracula Untold), so I’m tuning into this. Since of the shows you listed, I’ve only watched Taboo, hopefully it won’t feel quite so “been-done” to me.
LW1 - Consider seeking out legal counsel who specializes in assisting crime victims. The attorney can provide you with more advice about your options in your area. If you and the lawyer decide to pursue contacting police, you tend to get a better response when you have a knowledgeable lawyer with you. Maybe contact…
It is interesting to see everyone mention how they can’t stand Gilbert. Which is totally fine, but just seems completely unnecessary to bring up in this context.
As much as I absolutely despite this buffoon, I have to admit that he may have a point about the media - not that they are going to cover him favourably, but that his gong show of a presidency is like a car wreck that the media can’t ignore. During the election it made me so angry that he got so much coverage. If this…
I studied under Dr. Jones and found her to be one of the most brilliant and meticulous scholars I’ve ever met. She’s also a wonderful writer. Can’t wait to read this.
I want a book on the life of Grace Boggs. More than anything.
McAvoy better known as Professor FleX.
I don’t know how I can take 3 more years of this. I am so tired. I am weary in my bones.
Petty, but what is Hope Hicks wearing in the Politico article? Some mutated Laura Ashley football hybrid?
The New York Times broke the story, ya nerd.
Here’s the simple fact: It’s The New York Times
My least favorite type of internet comment is, “why haven’t you covered this topic?? It must be a conspiracy of silence!” Thanks for having the receipts.
You can open a 529 when you’re pregnant already. Our before you’re pregnant. You just have to wait until the kid had a SSN to designate them as the beneficiary of the account. This new policy doesn’t change anything except enshrining benefits for the ‘unborn’ in the tax code.
