I don’t think June Ambrose’s slip warranted an apology. She obviously forgot, or heck didn’t know, that Kate Spade is dead and it made her look a little dumb but it certainly shouldn’t have OFFENDED anyone.
Quite frankly, I am sick and tired of babies being automatically associated with women. It’s bad enough our careers suffer because we’re the primary care givers when kids get sick.
I get the author’s frustration, in that a number of men kinda assume they don’t really need to do much until the baby is out, or even until the baby is walking.
Representation matters. All too often men are shown to be clueless as fathers and we all chuckle along, or they are demeaned for seeming maternal and therefore unmanly, when all they are doing is actually parenting. Or they’re entirely absent or used as a sort of boogeyman for when a child has to be reprimanded. If…
Yeah, this is really the thing. If you want to do a destination wedding, that’s fine; it’s your day, you do whatever you want...but you need to realize that there will absolutely be people who you do really want at your wedding that will not be able to attend.
“I’ve had concerns about the Me Too movement from the beginning, about getting to this place where you can’t have normal interactions with each other,”
I have rolled in to the office while wearing my pjs with a coat over them to drop off forgotten items or sign in a kiddo who just missed the bell more times than I can count. Showing up is showing up, we can’t all be ready and having our best day every time an emergency arises.
I’m not trying to absolve Amazon of any role they may play in this story, but… I’ve never worked for an employer who can require you to go to the doctor.
Honestly, I get it, if I could have kept my pregnancy a secret at work till my baby was born I would have, I like a divide between my professional life an dmy personal life. For me it’s not a response to the oversharing of social media (though it might be that for some), it was more about wanting to avoid unsolicited…
I *still* say biopic (rhymes with myopic). PapaBear keeps telling me “it’s bio-pic” like a “biography picture” but... I just keep going with biopic sounding like myopic.
I was very perplexed and angry the day I learned “segue” was not pronounced “seeg” and that “Segway” was just a brand name playing off of it. I might still be perplexed and angry.
Here’s what I don’t get. He chooses to wake up at 2:30am. I see no reason he would need to have such a bizarre and anti-social schedule, but this is his choice.
I never thought I’d see a schedule that’s simultaneously so varied and so boring. Equal parts golfing and prayer? Swap out one or two items and this could easily be the schedule of an octogenarian.
I’m fairly certain everyone here intellectually understands the underlying issue. But there’s a problem in selecting an anecdote that immediately sours 75% of the readers. It actually diminishes the point she was trying to make, because it allows blame to easily and naturally be placed on the user instead of the…
I, and probably just about every woman I know, have all received a "hug" like that at some point, and I'll say once more for the folks in the back: That's not a hug, my dude.
Also you can never utter a racist slur and still be racist as fuck in your actions and thoughts. It’s not like “George never uses that word, therefore he’s not racist!” is solid logic in any way.
about which I am really trying to muster some freaking empathy.
When you sent out the message to the 15 people, was that to a group you made, or a group message? Because if it was, it wouldn’t be unusual for someone to assume the ongoing purpose of that group and/or group message would be to share baby photos.
Miss Manners says you should send them immediately, the rule is that people have one year to give you a wedding gift.
Oh come off it. No one is censoring her work.
