    Moved to tears. I’m sending tons of love your way, as I’m sure many readers are this morning. Thank you for your honesty.

    I highly recommend the This American Life episode (the second part comes out on Friday, I believe). These are children living in a war zone. These young people restrict their movements and have to either be at school or home or risk being shot, despite not participating in the drug trade, or starting trouble themselves. [...]

    Re: The Canada thing. I’ve seen this floating around on Facebook too. I HAVE to believe that most of those people are being sarcastic (that is, they actually agree with the ACA, and are mocking people who are upset about it as being ignorant). I just have to. Maybe not most, but some… right?

    I disagree with this characterization. I think that it is fine, and in fact effective, to make a distinction when trying to make your point with someone who disagrees. The truth is, people may have different opinions regarding federal vs. private spending (that may be political/economic, not religious), and making a distinction between the two [...]

    Feministing Community… I definitely need help!  Let me explain the full story. I was walking on campus today with Friend Who Says Offensive Things (but has been really good lately).  We pass by some chalk on the ground and he says “Ugh I hate this stuff.”  We take a look, and it says “Calling All Queers!” and [...]

  • ThumbnailThe other day my friend and I were in a favorite toy store – the kind that has lots of kid toys, kites, puzzles, and also funny adult gifts.  We were not particularly impressed by one pair of gifts: a “Control A Man” remote control and a “Control a Woman” remote control.   Now, not only is [...]

  • rebeccajk42 wrote a new blog post: When Party Talk Turns to Race   4 years, 11 months ago · View

    I was at a pretty low-key party last night with some friends, mostly all just sitting around a large dining room table eating and drinking.  I don’t exactly remember how, but somehow the conversation turned to race, which is of course normally quite charged; we’re not a bunch of social activists or race experts, but a [...]
