On Bloodfeast: Scary White People Tacos

@Anne Chopped up pickles were a go to for our #whitepeopletacos. Spicy pickles were even better.

On The Most Satisfying People to Subtweet (in Ascending Order)

Your very imbalanced old white man roommate.

Maybe just me.

On On Hair, There and Everywhere, and Intra-Cultural Shame

@hedgehogerie I tried. The other estie and I were mortified. But we both did our best to make her as comfortable as possible about it.
I went to school when I was an old, so I had life training in sensitivity, but it is not something that is taught at school (well my school, anyway) and it probably should.
I do give guidelines, which includes monthly maintenance if needed and the whys, and next time take a tylenol because holy hell underarm hair hurts (because of the swirl pattern it grows in), but I try not to comment too much on the amount of hair.

On On Hair, There and Everywhere, and Intra-Cultural Shame

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.

On The Tragic History of Fallen Teen Magazines

I was a pretty faithful Teen Beat reader, but the one I really loved? The name totally escapes me. It was a teen magazine, but it was geared toward alternative 80s music. I learned about so many bands from that magazine that I wouldn't have learned about because I lived in Montana and we were lucky to even have FM not to mention Pop stations.

On An Introductory Journey Through Blake Lively's Lifestyle Website

As Gwyneth once said: What's going on here? I love you. Get it together.

(I do not condone her fat shaming Ross Mathews, but it seems applicable here.)

On In Support of Debra Harrell, Jailed for Letting Her 9-Year-Old Play Unsupervised in the Park

@needsmoresalt Go check out the Free Range Kids website if you want proof that it's not just POC that are having this issue. Our culture surrounding children is changing and it's not necessarily for the better.

On In Support of Debra Harrell, Jailed for Letting Her 9-Year-Old Play Unsupervised in the Park

@largemarge Normally I'd agree with this, but this is happening all too often to a lot of parents of various races. One look at the Free Range Kids website will show you there's a huge culture of fear and helicoptering that we did not have at one time.

On In Support of Debra Harrell, Jailed for Letting Her 9-Year-Old Play Unsupervised in the Park

@Erryoudite
The park was not that far from the McDs. There is a path leading from the park to the McDonalds and it's only 3/10 of a mile. That is not that far. The long way is by the main roads and the news did not mention this. You can see this if you look at google maps.

On The Best Time I Learned My Last Name Means Blow Job

My grandparents had a (long dead now) next door neighbor named Richard Everhard. And yes, he did go by Dick. He was also a high school teacher. I wish it was a joke. It was not.
