It's Not 'Pro-Life,' It's 'Anti-Choice.' Get It Right, Jerks

Remember last month, when Texas State Senator Wendy Davis stood on her feet for 11 hours with no water breaks, bathroom breaks, or food to successfuly filibuster one of the most restrictive anti-abortion bills the country has ever seen? You may or may not know that Governor Rick Perry of Texas almost immediately negated her hard work by calling another special session to bring the bill up for a vote. Well, that special session was yesterday. The bill passed. More »

Hey Couple That Wheeled Your Baby To Brunch In A Crib, Thanks For Reminding Me Why I Left Brooklyn

Hey Couple That Wheeled Your Baby To Brunch In A Crib, Thanks For Reminding Me Why I Left Brooklyn

When you leave a place that you love, it’s hard not to look back with terrible homesickness. This has been happening to me a lot since I left Brooklyn. It’s easy to romanticize a place you left behind when you are not thrilled with where you’ve landed. It’s been really hard for me to remember why I was so ready to get the hell out of Brooklyn. Then I saw a story about some parents who wheeled their child – in her crib – to brunch on Fourth of July. All the memories came flooding back. More »

Disney’s New Frozen Heroine Is White, Blonde And Thin, Which Is Nice For A Change

Disneyâs New Frozen Heroine Is White, Blonde And Thin, Which Is Nice For A Change

After years of seeing diversity becoming increasingly prominent in children’s movies, it’s nice to see Disney taking a stand and making their Frozen heroine white, blond and thin. Finally all the white, blonde and thin children will be able to identify with a movie character. And in case you’re worried that Anna (voiced by Kristen Bell) will be the classic token thin, white character in the movie, Disney made the daring the move to throw in another one. She’s a snow queen named Elsa (voiced be Idina Menzel) who’s powerful enough to freeze the entire kingdom. Oh and twist, she’s Anna’s sister — so she also has a large part in the movie.

Mom Reacts To Bites During Breastfeeding In The Absolute Worst Way Possible

Mom Reacts To Bites During Breastfeeding In The Absolute Worst Way Possible

It’s time for me to say I CAN’T EVEN a whole mess of times because as a mom who breastfed a few babies who also insisted on gnawing on my breasts during mealtime I can’t even imagine getting so upset by it that I would have STABBED any of them. The worst thing I ever did after one of these episodes was cry and then eat too much ice cream and beg my husband to go buy me more Lansinoh. More »

Clean Up In Aisle 3: Customer Throws Jizz At Female Shopper He Thought Was 'Hot'

Picture this, you are minding your own biz, possibly busying bulk paper towels and cat food and mayhaps some lovely and delicious snack products when some dude interrupts you enjoying the easy listening of the Doobie Brothers “Takin’ It To the Streets” – the muzack version!- when you suddenly hear someone say “excuse me” and feel something wet and vaguely slimy on your “thigh, buttocks and leg.”

They Twerk And 9 Other Reasons Why I Love Grandmas More Than Anyone

They Twerk And 9 Other Reasons Why I Love Grandmas More Than Anyone

I wish my own grandmother were around so she could spend time with my kids and get to know them and tell them all the stories she used to tell me when I was growing up. I think kids need grandmas, and they need to be around people who love them like only grandmothers can, totally unconditionally. Plus, the older I get the more I realize how much youth is totally overrated. Young people are boring. They are nowhere near as interesting or as cool as old people. Especially old ladies. So why do grandmothers rock so hard? More »
