@jazzloon I mean, the worst part is that none of the dickpills even work.
Honestly though, great first week new team. Really enjoyed it.

The hero is us. VOTE. Protest. Donate money to Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and NAF. Volunteer as a clinic escort.
Become part of the chain of women that provides housing, food, and transportation to women coming to cities where abortions are obtainable. Challenge people who are anti-choice and anti-women's healthcare. If you've had an abortion, talk about it. If you haven't, still talk about it.
Intern or work at organizations devoted to ensuring women have access to reproductive healthcare. Run for office. Become an OBGYN and learn how to perform abortions. Provide abortion services to women.

The Abortion Avengers? Guardians of the Gynecologist? I'd watch that movie.
@Plexia I see what you're saying 100%, but I also read the disconnect here as something that fit with the rest of the confusion/misunderstanding/fucked-up-ness of the situation at large - she didn't understand anything about this person's family or where she was going, and all of these strong impressions and the way her expectations are thrown over add to the overall sense of displacement and dread. E.g. comparing the snow in Ireland to the snow in Wisconsin when she gets there, thinking she knows exactly what will happen and then finding out that things here function according to rules she's not even aware of. The observations about Ireland that she got "wrong" read less like assertions and more like little reflections of the disconnect that runs through the piece. (The only thing that gave me real pause was the thing about the dole, but again, I think it's the same - she thought this situation worked one way, and then the ground shifted.) That's how I read it, anyway.

As a therapist, whenever a client comes in with a partner who has to tell me that they don't think my therapy is helping and/or that my client is properly progressing, and yet that client comes to me every week and never mentions any of this herself, SUPER RED FLAG.
@Green No one cares about your boner.
I had a young girl (11 or 12) who was part Indian in my chair for a brow and lip wax once and she was very facially hirsute. Her white grandmother said, "oh, she's our hairy monkey." She looked so embarrassed and preteen me wanted to cry. The co-worker that was in the room with me was also horrified.
I don't know what this has to do with your post, other than humiliating and shaming women with facial hair seems to be a thing. A thing that needs to be killed with fire.
Actually I think that's a pretty sick burn for a nine year old. I only recently figured out what "fivehead" means, and I am an adult ("adult"), so.
