Pyongyang is, I think, understandable. American education in many places seems to be getting more insular, although the world is getting more globalized. Given that it's the capital of North Korea which a lot of school's don't even talk about AT ALL... if she were my age I wouldn't be shocked. Maybe it's different as… » 8/28/14 5:27pm Thursday 5:27pm

If you watch the video, there's also plenty of the subversion of the male gaze that Nicki is so good at doing so subtly. At one point, she peels a banana and the foreshadowing is clearly "Nicki is about to eat this banana so sexily that it will blow your mind..." and then she cuts it up, throws it away, and makes a… » 8/25/14 2:14pm Monday 2:14pm

Just FYI, I'm your daughter's age and have had my period come over a week late simply because I was stressed about being late. Took a pregnancy test and was negative and what do you know, period the next day. They're fuckers. » 8/24/14 7:19pm Sunday 7:19pm

I mean, it slightly bugs me that she's talking about how she's had a feminist stance all along, because there is very little about her body of work or her public statements that is feminist.

I'm not sorry for the people of Ferguson and POC in general, I am angry for/alongside them. I am sad for the… » 8/17/14 12:35am 8/17/14 12:35am

I always thought that it was because of a baby's lack of mobility... so if they somehow manage to get a blanket/pillow maneuvered over their face, they can't necessarily move it back off of their face and may suffocate. Setting a baby on a double bed to sleep is fine, as long as they're on TOP of the blanket and not… » 8/12/14 3:35pm 8/12/14 3:35pm

Oh my checklist (note: I'm a Young, and unmarried) is that they have to be willing to stay home with any eventual kids. In reality, if someone is going to take time off of work to be a parent (beyond maternity/paternity leave) I really want it to be me, BUT it's still important to see that it would be an option,… » 8/06/14 11:52pm 8/06/14 11:52pm
