At first I reflexively assumed that all three Jezebel posts had been shared to Groupthink, however flukey that might/may seem. But the reality is, no, such is not the case — not by a long shot — so I’m sitting here wondering what the hell is going on. »
Agreed about the stereotyping: besides being ridiculous, it’s cheap and dumb. To complicate matters, she’s relying way too much on the sledgehammer as writing tool and when you do that, well, everything looks like a nail.
I agree with your idea, wholeheartedly, but I’m also thinking of the scads of ordinary people from all over the world who’ve visited Nepal for purposes of climbing the base of Mt. Everest. It’s definitely a thing and if even one-quarter of people who’ve ever done that trek got out their chequebooks and did something,… »
This is very upsetting — I’d even go so far as to say deeply distressing — to read, AB, and I am so sorry that you, your family and your father are being subjected to this needless stress pile-on. »
She’s Canadian? Well, fuck me. (I was familiar enough with the name to know that Ms. Murphy’s gained a reputation as a TERF — or TERF-leaning — with homophobic and even racist tendencies, but my disappoint and disgust levels have gone way, way up as a result of her Laverne Cox essay).
Yes, it is a basic necessity, and it’s worth noting that the Canadian mat leave coverage also extends to adoptive and foster-to-adopt parents. As well, I’ve been told — by someone whom I trust — that parents of missing or presumed-t0-be-abducted children are eligible, too.

Kristen Stewart’s really grown on me, too, and although it’s been a gradual thing, I really understood a lot more about her after reading the interview that Patti Smith — her hero! — conducted with her for the April issue of Interview Magazine. She’s a bit of a loner and definitely gives off a… »
It really took the wind out of my sails when I first heard about his passing this morning, especially because details were so scant at first. In a way, then, I’m glad his sister has since spoken to the CBC and added some colour with respect to how he lived and how he will be remembered/honoured. »
Our Dashboards seemed to have gotten rolled out yesterday and I know that, understandably, there were were a few GT posts about the "drafts" business. Here's the most recent one but if you scroll back even further, you're sure to find others. »
I will give you this: you guys have shown remarkable efficiency in ignoring every single Pinkham-related inquiry that's been posed thus far. Even if you only responded to one of those commenters, and even if you were obliged to be rather terse about it, it would be a darn sight better than giving off such a… »
I regret to inform you that..... I didn't do the unsharing, and I'm the only mod around right now. »
You’re right. And the cynical side of me is saying it makes sense that ABC has got until April 24th to milk this possible big reveal for all its worth. »
