@Rebecca Daniells@facebook I think she meant 'covert Christian' more as like ... as opposed to Christians who are anything but covert (you know the kind, drop Jesus into every topic, suggest prayer as advice for each and every personal problem). I also didn't think their christianity was explicitly linked to being a 'basic bitch' - I felt that was connected to being pretty, being coy and liking products. I think the overall tone of the article was of being endeared to these ladies in any case, not trying to oppress their beliefs.
Thank you for posting this. Mississippi Drift is new to me and so incredible.
I remember reading Matthew Power when I was younger and just loving the empathy he brings to his subjects. This is really sad.
@Edie W That is such a good one! I just had to google. 29 over here so you saved me three more years of ignorance.
@supernintendochalmers Oh man, same. And I can already tell it's accurate. Slogslogslog, will this freakin' marsh ever end? Nice view at least.
@'riel YES! I was going to say I need that punching guy in my life, except instead of "do the dishes" he should say "write your thesis!" >:(
<3 this and the last piece about women writers. Yep. Also a fan.
@Judith Slutler Woah perfectly said! I want to memorise this paragraph.
@Judith Slutler oh my god WEAR A HELMET. I live in Vietnam and I'm telling you, *no one* wears a helmet to ride a bicycle. I do! I do everyday! You want to know why? It's a horrible, true story. My friend, who went to the same school as me, was living in Vietnam also and she was drunk and not wearing a helmet and involved in an accident and is *now mentally handicapped for life*.
I seriously wish I was making this up.
Wear a helmet wear a helmet wear a helmet oh my goddds.
@ohmy My current helmet says "CHASE AGONISTIC" on it and has a little brim for the sun. I don't think the brilliant humour of this helmet was intentional, as I live in Vietnam and quite often random long words are printed on things. So great.
