Some men are *very* irritated by the idea that maybe a kid doesn’t owe them a hug

Social consequences to curb abhorrent behavior is a fucking cornerstone of civil society yet dudes like this act as if the internet invented it

I'm getting surgery tomorrow to fix my broken nose, if anyone has recovery tips LET ME HAVE THEM. (I'm also not looking fwd to being under general anesthesia for the first time, blergh)

@chrissyteigen  I do, every year! The trick is to start with easy apps (caviar, a smoked fish, etc - stuff that requires almost no work). But my for sure faves are pasta vongole and a spicy octopus (this recipe is aces)

Recovering from surgery and re-watching the Walking Dead and WOW was the Lori pregnancy storyline fucking awful

It is the literal apocalypse maybe give the lady her abortion pills without comment

The only thing I have learned on Tik Tok is that it's universally accepted that someone wearing a washcloth on their head is pretending to be a mom or girlfriend

Anyway someone should write about the tik tok and the veneration of basic-ness but not me

I had a dream last night that I visited an escape room/zoo where you had to complete a puzzle or the animal’s gates would come down while you were trapped in there. So, free business idea!


Looks like the First Lady of Japan pretended not to speak English for nearly 2 hrs to avoid talking to Trump

It's fascinating to see people argue that women won't really be punished if abortion is illegal. Here are some things that have *already* happened to women despite Roe:

If there were pictures of little blonde children sleeping on cement floors covered in their own filth, it would take all of 24 hours to get them out

Remember when this woman *went to jail* because she used her dad’s address to get her kids into a better school district?

Women, if you're being sexually assaulted make sure you take close notice of your attacker's dick because Ben Shapiro wants to know exactly what it looks like

A woman went into premature labor while being detained, her baby died, and this is ICE’s response: “a stillbirth is not considered an in-custody death”

John Becker (OH) thinks ectopic pregnancies can be "reimplanted" in a uterus. Vito Barbieri (ID) said women can have gyn exams by swallowing a camera. Dan Flynn (TX) believes abortion requires cutting into a uterus. Meet the men legislating your body.

Boys can straight up *admit* to rape these days and a male judge will still find a way to let him off

1) this would obvs never be a story about a man 2) this is not an expensive haircut/color for a public figure who is frequently on TV 3) if her hair was raggedy, that would be the lead story instead 4) 🙄🙄🙄🙄

Just your regular reminder that the president of the United States was credibly accused of rape and we've just...stopped talking about it.
