Of all the hyper "girlie" picture books out there, I mind Nancy the least. I like that part of being "fancy " in Nancy's world includes "fancy" words (i.e. a big vocabulary) and a number of scientific pursuits.

I think that notion is alive and well in a lot of stupid people's minds. At the hospital after my son was born, nurses kept trying to change him. My husband would stop them so he could do it, and every single time, they were shocked. Every nurse. Every time. Sad.

Yeah, I was going to say, it sounds like more family bathrooms is the real solution. It's not possible with every establishment obviously, but moving forward...

I love how they think abortion commentary is relevant in a message about their bigoted, racist members.

Disappearing twins aren't the only form of human chimerism––widespread low-level chimerism was recently discovered in a study of mothers and children; there are literally parts of us that are our mothers and vice versa. There is also mosaicism where people have cells with different genotypes even though they developed Read more

I am distantly related to these people, though through the line without money or influence, but through the line that carries these particular mental disorders. I barely just escaped being "Little Edie'd" by my mother, and she still managed to steal a good part of my life. The documentary is more like a horror film Read more

I feel like in another time period Little Edie could have had a very fulfilling life. But in her time and place she was expected to marry someone of her class, and as she says in Grey Gardens, she wanted to marry for love, and she didn't love any of her suitors. She did love Joe Kennedy Jr, but he was killed in WWII, Read more

I have empathy for her but feel like I wouldn't like her at all if I met her in person. Not that she's mean or cruel, but you can tell something's "off" right away. Both her and her mom.

I always felt the "amusement" people say they feel when watching this film was terrible and wrong. Emotional incest at it's worst and most damaging, IMO.

Watching Little Edie circle round the revelation in the documentary Greg Gardens, I was struck by the thought that we all secretly long for self-awareness. If our lives are a puzzle that we must solve, sometimes (if we suspect that the finished image will be an ugly one) it's easier to let it go unsolved. If the Read more

I watched Grey Gardens and The Beales of Grey Gardens over the weekend. Little Edie remains a mystery.

Jesus Christ. She's usually good at interviewing musicians. I mean, that is one of the many reasons why I usually think Terry Gross is awesome.

This is why it's so, so important to test-drive someone before marrying them. I realize that in their situation they couldn't, and that is a sad story.

C'mon Jezebel. Having kids does not make your vagina huge.
