I'm supposed to have my second kid during the retrograde period. For someone like me who is like 55% interested in astrology, is this something that i should bear in mind?
The editor's note at the bottom of the piece is curious. What accusations are they preempting with that, I wonder?

I'm a lady editor at a men's magazine. I just sent this around to the 2 other lady editors so we can talk about it together, which will be fun. I really enjoyed this, and my experience is in many ways similar. Especially this passage:
"It wasn’t until much later, when I wasn’t working there anymore, that I finally got that Jen was not “a Jen” and Stacy was not “a Stacy,” and that maybe that editor’s sexist typing of me wasn’t any worse than my own. And that’s the moment I remember as the beginning my own feminism, though it took a while to jell."
Kind of too bad that so much of the press leading up to this excellent-looking movie starring such a cool-seeming lady is about her pubes. She's the first on-screen woman who actually looks like someone I'd hang out with in real life that I've seen... maybe ever.
