As for me, these days, I read only Bustle.

@crocuta uh somebody obviously hasn't tried the all-proton diet. I don't know if atoms and molecules are bad for you per se but I just know that after a big bowl of protons, I feel really positive.

I just had an abortion, and it was harder than I thought it would be, but it was definitely the right decision.

Yeah, that was intense! Some of my more measured, serious responses are on storify here: storify.com/amirightfolks/non-verbal-no-s-and-sex-as-conquest (a ton of other great geniuses on Twitter have done a fantastic job articulating further what's so pernicious and deadly about techniques like this), but by the end of the week I was all serious'ed out and was just like, hey, let's apply PUA tactics to ordering sandwiches and then go hang out with my grandma.

@hallelujah Yeah, this was basically the main thing I had to bring to this week's open thread too. It was incredible to me how neither of them could grasp that they were not achieving the conversation that they were purporting to want, at allllll.

My coworker made a jokey remark about women being difficult to understand this week, and I told him that women are in fact not at all hard to understand when you realize that they are exactly like men, but with a long history of being treated differently. He was very quiet after that.

So, Hairpin. About 100 days ago, I donated some stem cells to my dad to combat his stage-4 lymphoma. Since then, we've just been waiting to see how things would go. Well, the 100 Day Later scans show no evidence of cancer in his marrow, nor in the rest of his body.

My dad is coming home cancer free.

I'm sorry, I'm being pretty mean but basically what I am saying is that I wouldn't care if the Civil Rights Act was passed because of civil disobedience or because the Black Panthers found and stabbed every racist in congress because sometimes, results mean more than procedure.

Nah nope I find it inspiring and awesome that women in Texas have not had their access to abortion further restricted, and I find it inspiring and awesome to see democratic elected officials fighting for my rights exactly as hard as the other side fights to erode them.

edit: I do understand how, for a man, the airy philosophical side of this battle--which is essentially built on sand because one side will regularly ignore its supposed honor at every possible opportunity to do so and gain a political victory--is just as important as the part that significantly affects real women's lives, though.
