"[F]eling, emotion, and narcissism, rather than reason, empiricism, and public-spiritedness"
That’s what’s scariest about Donald Trump.

"[I]f everyone would have just stayed in the closet and learned to live with their god-given shame...we wouldn’t have to experience these uncomfortable social growing pains"

Way to go, Target! I'll be seeing you soon.
Dear Target, I’m really sorry to do this to you. I hate open letters. I really didn’t want to write one, but then I saw this OTHER open letter to you circulating the interwebs from some chick named Mary Martha hating on your restroom policy. …

"If, as a teacher, you want your students to do their best [on the high-stakes, standardized tests], you have to have them practice what is effectively bad writing— no introduction, no conclusion, just hit the points of the rubric and provide the necessary factual support."
