It’s odd how I can harbor so many negative feelings for somebody, then lose it all when I see them go through something so awful as the loss of a family member. I keep forgetting that we’re all human and I need to take that into account more often. It seems that my compassion has been slowly drained out of me by the hate and ignorance in the world, which has turned me into something...
Resized: Let me tell you why i'm angry: Fucking... →
resized: I spent the majority of my morning reading articles on feminism and women’s rights and seething. I’m not the first one to do this, this is nothing new, this isn’t a rarity, and this is SAD. I’m one of many females in the world who has bouts of UNCONFUCKINGTROLLABLE ANGER every so often because… Fucking nailed it.
You mean changing my profile picture doesn’t magically give gays the right to marry? I’m aware of that, but thanks for thinking I’m naive enough to believe that would sway the way the SCOTUS rules. I didn’t just change my picture so I could call myself an activist, I’ve done plenty of things to support gay rights. But no, I changed it to show solidarity, to show that...

Don’t hate them, that doesn’t do any good. Instead, motivate them. Give them the push they need.

carolineeand: lettersintheampersand: “No, seriously–it’s bad enough that Fox News wasted a segment on Adele and Kelly Clarkson’s weight post-Grammys, but instead of just being the tabloid news show they are, they tried to give real analysis. And they end up perpetuating crappy myths about weight, weight-loss and health. Neil Cavuto had on nutritionist Keren Gilbert who said, if either of them...

paulftompkins: “Ask your female friends, if you have any, if they’ve ever walked home late at night with a key pushed through their knuckles, just in case, if they’ve ever crossed the street to avoid a stranger, just in case, if they’ve ever taken the long way home because of the weird guy on the corner, just in case. Ask them if they’ve ever made up a boyfriend to get a guy to leave them alone,...

netherota: Dear Dan Schwartzman, I’ve just begun listening to your radio show. I commute to work at night and listen to KTLK, where your show has recently replaced Phil Hendrie in the 10PM slot. I have found you to be an enjoyable and thoughtful personality, that is until last night (Jan 17th)…. The most sensible thing I’ve read in a while.

My mom gave me a great piece of advice once: “Stop pushing, and it’ll happen.” I was 8 and constipated at the time but it still applies to other things.
Just my thoughts.
I was in 5th grade when my brother went to prison for something that was well known throughout the community. Some of you know this, some of you don’t. This, for lack of a better word (I have family on here), sucked. For multiple reasons, the biggest one, the one that still hurts, is that I didn’t/don’t have my brother, who is a good person, and one of the wisest people I know, by my side. I also...
Intern Caroline: Slut-Shaming for Beginners →
carolineeand: Recently at work I was called upon by a co-worker to define “slut-shaming.” I consider the community I work and live in to be a very non-prejudiced and integrated environment. However, some people simply don’t know the vocabulary and are curious. Being tasked to define slut-shaming to a man who… This.

“There are no secrets. We’ll win Ohio,” said Romney’s top strategist Stuart...– (via Boston Globe) Stevens, no need to elaborate! We’ve ALL played the classic parlor game where we envision our family driving off a cliff and pushing one of them out will save the rest of you somehow. No need to explain it with all those words! We got it at “conscientious objection”, which...
