During the summer between 7th and 8th grade (circa 1999), my mom bought one of those weird Ab Rocker exercise devices. It was also the first summer I was left home—as opposed to taken to grandma’s—every day, so I made a daily routine of watching my favorite VHS tapes (Three Ninjas Kick Back) and doing various

Yeah, no, I cannot compute feeling “ire” at ever seeing a little girl who looks like this or having the nerve to compare this hairstyle—which looks like the girl just got out of soccer practice for fuck’s sake—to minstrel imagery.

I’m trying to see the Stevie comparison to Mandy Moore, even from the point of view of you writers that never grew up with Stevie and might kinda see something similar, but still nothing. Doesn’t sound in any way like Stevie voice- or music-wise, and unless one bell-sleeved gown without any of Stevie’s gypsy-like

This isn’t a new thing. I remember all the shit that Gabby Douglas got at the Olympics, mostly from older black women, for not having perfectly styled hair. Girl is doing a back flip on a piece of wood 4 inches wide and landing on one foot, who gives a fuck what her hair looks like?

“Undergraduate student Wayne Ruan said he supported Sanders’ plans to eliminate college tuition and debt, but that if the election were held today, he’d vote for Andrew Yang.”

I, too, lay awake at night worrying that shitty, violent people may have to face some consequences for their shitty, violent actions.

What worries me is how this might affect her own legal battle over a strip club brawl back in August 2018.”

Every agency head that Trump has nominated is fundamentally opposed to the mission and existence of the agency they head. Betsey Devos is fundamentally opposed to the mission of public schools. Scott Pruitt is fundamentally opposed to environmental regulations. And Carson doesn’t believe the government should provide

Is she a natural talent? I mean, really, is she? I have yet to see her in anything remotely artistically taxing and she did an OK job in “Mean Girls” and I guess “Herbie” was mildly entertaining for my, at the time, adolescent daughter. I have yet to see her in anything that would challenge anybody with average acting

Did Trump pick the worst person for this job accidentally with Carson or was it on purpose? Or was it a two for one? “I get a minority cabinet member and he’ll wreck the place!”

See, I think the culture of secrecy needs to go away. There is a stigma to being a birthmother. People are often silent bc of judgment. I’m almost 50 now and used to think the past and pain would not be as harsh as time passed.  I’m open about it but many aren’t. The past isn’t dredged unless you kept it secret. Then

I’m a reluctant birthmother and this issue is s major source of righteous anger in the adoptee community. The sealed records are supposed to protect the biological parents from the pain of later contact and the adopters of the fear their adopted children will want a relationship or even know their birth parents. The
