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.)

Somewhere in the Hamptons, Gwyneth Paltrow is consciously laughing.

"Get it off that heatlet! Get it off!"
hahahaha

how long do we think it'll take before Blake Lively pounces on Gwenyth Paltrow and begins wearing her like a Goop-tastic skin suit?

DYING. ""lifestyle website," two words that have always appeared before me with a Borgesian epistemic circularity…"

@Lily Rowan It is insane to base important decisions on accommodating hypothetical bullies from the future.
Maybe your fellow parents shouldn't raise their kids to be assholes.

Had to pop down here and note that for me one of the funniest, dumbest, and most consistent reactions to this highly reasonable point of view is when people are like "BUT WHERE DID THE **AUTHOR'S** NAME COME FROM? A MAN? HER FATHER? REALLY MAKES U THINK"

.... does it now

Long-time Hairpin lurker, and now finally registered so that I could let you know just how much this resonated with me. My parents felt extremely strongly about the power of names, to the extent that not only did my mother keep her name, but that my brother and I have a different last name from either of our parents. It is still a family name - our maternal grandmother's maiden name - and I love having that part of my heritage front and center. But I definitely still get a lot of odd looks and comments when people meet my parents for the first time. Also, our middle names are our parents' hyphenated last names, but I stopped using it on official forms long ago.
