@Cumberwho actually not the creators of the hairpin but lovely ladies nonetheless. the ladies at the toast, Nicole Cliff, write at the awl and here but wasn't the creator. that was Edith. this whole comment section reminds me why I don't read The Hairpin anymore.
Thank you for this! It's been a difficult thing to process, my go to response is rage, and I've been struggling with how to talk to my own child.
I read this and my first thought was: let's see how many redundant comments/complaints the 'pinners can pile on this! and the crowd did not disappoint! president obama is not a beta male! fat kids, what?! repeat, forever ...
@gobblegirl my you have delicate sensibilities. you must be the most ladylike commenter in the bunch. probably a total bummer as well.
I spend too much time looking at gif sets on tumblr so I'm excited about this! Maura is a wonderful writer and I'm happy to pay for quality writing. Independent ladiez doing it for themselves.
@OhMarie If you're still counting down to your birthday in half-month increments you probably shouldn't be thinking about anything.
@Loose Seal It's like some bad soap opera plot and I'm pretty sure it's fake. Prudie is a mark!
@E Okay, I was trying to be more funny than snarky. Glad we can all laugh.
@E I always hate it when people give step by step instructions complete with lovely photos and have the nerve to do it differently than I would do it! I mean, why did she deviate from the way I did this in second grade? Is she from Mars or something?
Someone told me I looked like Skrillex! Best.
