    I wanted to drive in the carpool lane when I was pregnant and argue that I was two people.

    I’m not really sure where to put this so I apologize for going off-topic on this post. I’ve been noticing some comments that to me read as anti-feminist, mra supporting, and victim-blaming and yet Feministing has published them. I understand that some comments slip through the cracks and that’s why the community can report comments, but it just seems to be happening more and more lately. I’m beginning to wonder if Feministing has changed its comments policy? If that is the case and the standards have changed, is it possible that we could have a post explaining those changes? I’ve looked over the comments policy and it doesn’t seem to have changed. I guess I’m just wanting some clarification so I can know what to expect when reading the comments, thanks!
