My over-thirty friend had her most recent birthday party there. She loves the place, we had t-shirts made for all of us, and we all got kinda drunk watching kitschy family theater. I have zero complaints.

There’s nothing illegal/wrong about coming to the US specifically to give birth. The only thing that might hold up an otherwise unremarkable entry into the US is that the pregnant person has to prove they have enough funds to (1) support herself and (2) cover the costs of any medical care related to the Read more

“Loser” absolutely still holds a lot of weight for many. A sudden flash of sadness came over me while writing the first comment, because I remember really hurting someone I loved by calling him a loser, and doing it not because I thought he actually was a loser but because I knew how heavy it would be for him.

Really? That makes me quite sad, but when I think about it, I guess it does make sense that most people are expected to be working and doing a certain task at a certain time at all times they’re “on the clock.” I can’t count the number of times I’ve just need to take a break and a long walk during the work day, and Read more

Not trying to pile on, but I’d add that, not only is that the point black people have been making for hundreds of years, it does not really apply here.

I get what you’re saying, but besides precision, why is saying 53% of white women voted for Trump misleading? When we talk about voting and percentages of groups that voted for a particular person, there’s always an implied “who voted” after the group. Just barely 53% of white women even voted in the last election, so Read more

That’s pretty horrible. Also, I’m sure you don’t know, I’m just a weirdo, but why’d they even file the signed marriage license if the marriage fell apart just after the “I do”s?

But, that “fair point” is so obvious it doesn’t need to be made, so what even is the point of stupid letters like this?

Agreed, and to piggyback off your comments, there are lazy people that are poor, sure, but there are also plenty of lazy people that are not poor, simply because of the circumstances into which they were born. And, because lazy people are not (1) universally poor nor (2) the only people that are poor, we should not Read more
