By apples and oranges on Adventures in the Clearance Section

I had to come down here and just make one comment before finishing:
The small vaginal guard sticker in the crotch cowers as it’s consumed by your shadow (as if it didn’t have enough to contend with: abuse, neglect, existential confusion. [“They’re just trading bacteria through me! Don’t you see? I have no purpose!” the sticker screamed to an indifferent coat hanger one night after closing]).

Ladies, we're keeping on our underwear trying on bathing suit bottoms RIGHT?!?!?!? PLEASE TELL ME YES. That sticker isn't the only barrier here!

Ok back to reading just scarred for life that some people may have been ignoring the signs asking you to not strip down to try on suits.

Whenever I meet other native NJians, I always ask them if they grew up reading Weird NJ and what urban legends/ ghost stories they grew up with. NJ is a weird, weird place.

By Quinn A@twitter on Interview with Filmmaker Izzy Chan: "Have we adjusted our expectations of what a man needs to bring to the table?"

@City_Dater Yeah, and it seems like it's not even so much about the women, if the men are also more likely to be unhappy and cheating. Someone needs to step up in those situations, but I'm having a hard time seeing why it ought to be women.

Victim blaming. What kind of witch-apologia-factory has this site BECOME?

@Lily Rowan I have a Bachelor's of Music degree and I hate the abbreviation for this very reason.

A friend and I were just discussing how period shits were omitted from all teenage info-sessions on dealing with your period, leaving us both to believe something was seriously wrong with our individual bodies. I want to petition to have period-shits added to the 5th grade group convos.

I am confused as to how Rapunzel's 2010 look is not also Jasmine's 1992 look. Or am I the only one who remembers an excess of floral A-line dresses?

Upworthy is basically the over-enthusiastic intern at a Washington NGO in website form.

@Bookgerm Better question: What Would Miss Piggy Do? (the answer has a "HIIII-YAA!" in it somewhere, I'm sure)

FWIW I have seen a complete stranger's scrotum while he was wearing too short shorts. We were at a winery and he was sitting in a chair cross legged, enjoying his wine. I have not seen a stranger's vulva due to her short shorts.
