Let's see how this matches up with my favorite show currently on TV.

Rituals with masks, metaphorical check.
Plaid, check.
Teenage girls and/or women with astoundingly fantastic skin, check.
Vast quantities of alcohol, check.
Men with amazing forearms, check.*
Taxidermy, check.**
Unusual teeth, check.

It's official, RuPaul's Drag Race is the best drama on television right now. You heard it here first.

* Stuffed crows, "Game of Thrones" outfit.
** Last season premiere, "I was giving Helen Keller drowning realness". Don't ask.

"does the joke i want to post about the pie chart scan as a joke in tonal/political/spiritual accord with the pie chart, or is it clueless in a way my privilege prevents me from seeing?" Uhh, roughly 1% at least

By Caity on How to Fill the Awkward Silence in an Elevator Full of Women

I had a good Moment Between Women on the subway this morning:

I jumped onto the train right before the doors closed and a girl about my age told me she liked my bracelet, which is sort of a metal link number with small daisies affixed between every link. I told her "Thanks!" and added that I had accidentally broken off some of the delicate metal petals in my haste to put it on this morning. (I tried to squeeze it over my giant hand instead of opening the clasp. LEARN FROM ME, LADIES.)

Then a stately older woman who happened to be standing next to us looked down at my wrist and said, "It really is a lovely bracelet."

I thanked her and added, "I wish I hadn't destroyed it."

And she said:

"Lots of flowers are missing petals."

THE PERFECT THING TO SAY. What a graceful lady.
