On Things I Learned About Children on a Recent Flight Out of Orlando

I think this is appropriate here: http://blog.sfgate.com/sfmoms/2012/09/04/courteous-parents-of-twins-placate-plane-passengers-by-handing-out-candies/

Brilliant! I love kids, but admit to being one of those horrible people who instantly freak out when I see children seated near me. Getting a little note or something like this beforehand would definitely go far in increasing my patience levels exponentially.

So yes, parents, I can be bribed to like your children.

On Interview With a Virgin: Maya

Thank you, Jia and Maya, for this. Soooo refreshing to hear both the uplifting and terribly sad parts of Maya's story.

I really resonate with all of her attitudes toward sex and education and the Bible. Keep fighting the good fight! (And by that I mean the fight to stay true to your principles and desires, and claiming agency over your body.)
