I mean, not to bend over backwards to praise a man for doing The Basic Right Thing but this is a literal example of a man who used all types of his privilege (white, male, wealthy, fame, name recognition, relative power within powerful media institutions) as a lever to bring a harmful and deeply entrenched… Read more
It’s really astounding the bitterness and anger spewed at a person who is the perfect example of what this site keeps saying it wants as allies. If he isn’t a good enough ally, then who is?
I mean... if you’re mad that A Man is getting credit, cover Kantor and Twohey themselves more on this site? They surely deserve it and I’d love to read the piece about their journey. If you’re mad that the victims aren’t centered, there are other pieces where they are. I’m not sure the existence of one book about the… Read more
Her book details a lifetime of trauma and abuse. Regardless of age, a person can be vulnerable to manipulation, especially given the right set of circumstances. And Ashton’s persona is certainly that of a dolt, but his success in business and entertainment suggests he’s rather more savvy than that.
That’s something I was wondering, too. I skimmed the actual paper, and it’s comparing menopausal women (most of whom are above 60, if I remember correctly) who either take or do not take estrogen or estrogen & progesterone. Estrogen only treatment has an odds ratios of around 1.2-1.3, whereas both hormones had odds… Read more
My mother went into fairly early menopause (early 40s) back in about 1970. Her ob/gyn put her on HRT right away and she continued to take it UNTIL HER EARLY 60s. She developed breast cancer at about age 63 and the first thing her ob/gyn told her to do was to flush the HRT pills down the toilet.
“Is that what gave me… Read more
nice and classist
I doubt my baby pictures will out my identity. It’s more important to share this FASHION from the 1980s.
A girlmom might snidely remark to Williams about her son walking around in a Spiderman costume, “Well, does he ever take that off?” But a boymom would understand.
Really? My only child (daughter, age 11) barely took off her Iron Man costume for weeks. Then the Captain America phase started. She’s already talking about… Read more
A grave mistake? How about there was no movement until these ladies came around? No one WANTED to take on the movement and these ladies did. So, now, of course, because they exposed themselves in an honest and open way they are being attacked as not being the right “Faces” of the movement. They MADE that movement. Not… Read more
I think her heart is in the right place and she’s generally on the right side of things. I think it’s a brave thing for someone whose career relies largely on public perception to put out their opinions, stand behind them and weather the criticism that unfailingly comes from that. I think there are many, many, many… Read more
I’m uncertain what your point is, beyond giving us a brief history of Milano’s public statements over the past twenty years. Is it that her activism is imperfect? Because while true of her, that is also true of every activist. Is it that there is something discordant about her moving from talking about issues she… Read more
I have read Jezebel and lingered in the grays for a decade. The snark and grammatical errors that seem to be your signature are having me deeply reconsider my loyalty. I seriously wish you would reconsider using a mocking tone in every piece you write. Yes Alyssa Milano has immense amounts of white privilege but she… Read more
