    HA! This is amazing. Single mom, 2 kids, 260k? The richest person I know makes less than that, with husband, sans kids. I’m going into a moderately well payed field and I’ve never even imagined a future where I could make 180k even with my partner, much less raking that in while I’m retired. We’re [...]

  • Kate commented on the blog post Did Chris Brown get a tattoo of a battered woman’s face?   2 years, 1 month ago · View

    As much as I despise Chris Brown and think this tattoo was a very poor choice, it isn’t a battered woman. It’s clearly a face in make up like a Dia de los Muertos skull, there are flowers and everything. Again, still a poor choice for a guy who seems to make a lot of [...]

  • You’re so right. Women have never had any additional pressures pushed on them by society to look a certain way, so they should be as blase as you are about photoshopped dudes. I wish women would just stop complaining and calm down, am I right, buddy?

    I don’t understand what the webcam part of this means. Was it a weird ploy to make it seem like you want abortions to be streamed online if you voted against it?

    One of the major problems with the case that you probably missed because you were away was that there was a huge amount of time where absolutely nothing was done, no charges pressed, no taking him in for additional questioning, etc. The spark that started this fire was that a black teenager was shot and [...]

    You should take the time to read the book or, if you didn’t, check out the movie. Katniss thinks the romance is fake the whole time, and there’s a lot of ambiguity over her feelings. What she definitely does is subvert the system and PRETEND she’s in a budding romance to manipulate the wealthy sponsors [...]

  • Thanks, I’ll definitely go to a show or two. I didn’t even know this was happening.

    Beer and pork are not generally considered medication by the medical field. Plan B is. No one’s rights are violated when they can’t find a rump roast. It might feel more practical to say that you are allowed to not carry a drug if someone else has it within X miles, but how do you [...]

  • Kate commented on the blog post Wesley Meredith Wins Most Sexist Political Ad of the Year   3 years, 11 months ago · View

    I’d have to wonder more about people who see a woman with lots of money and immediately jump to the conclusion “sex worker”. This kind of reasoning parallels the kind of crap I hear around my more conservative family members. This commercial was not made in a vacuum – this imagery was not accidentally offensive and [...]

    I was only vaguely annoyed until that giant roll of one-hundred dollar bills came out. Of course the narration isn’t going to say, “And by the way, we’re implying that she’s a prostitute,” but that’s definitely the message I got. There’s not many professions where one might reasonably keep rolls of cash on hand, and [...]
