"Make America Grate Again"

That headline, coupled with the picture, make me glad I'm far from Idaho at the moment. The school pictured is a typical rural Idaho public school. This poor kid.
When a teammate held out his arms after football practice in their high school locker-room, the boy thought he was about to get a hug. Instead, he got viciously raped, authorities say. According to the lawsuit, the alleged rape wasn’t a one-off but rather the culmination of months of racist abuse by white students against the boy, who is black.

I have to admit that I would be totally amused by the dog in the shopping cart thing. For a satire, this has a lot of really good design ideas.

Oh, I hadn't heard that Giardia had them after all. So I'm glad this can stand in for that example.

This is a really good point.  The comments are full of people saying that their birth was boring, so there's no way it could make a cool story.  But c'mon, if it was boring, your birth story isn't going to be the one that gets novelized.  

I think people are just afraid to take women's work seriously.  The way that being a placental mammal depends on so much sacrifice from women is indeed a terrifying subject, but if we're going to be human, we need to handle it.  

Sometimes my depressive side paralyzes me with the thought that in the course of being alive, I'm going to have some truly painful experiences.  I have a very specific memory of watching a videotape of a baseball game at my school where a teacher was hit HARD in the face with a ball, and it was obviously kind of hilarious (Sorry Mr. Swanson), but I couldn't help but think that my baseball-to-the-face moment was already in some kind of queue.  

I may be going a little tangential, but I think it just goes to show that there's a lot of emotional and intellectual material to be mined.  
Are there any taboo subjects left in literature? Graphic violence and sex in any of its endless variations have become mainstream. Even excretion is no ...

One of the things that we like to look at is how often mothers are missing or dead in heroic fiction (You know, comic book type stuff, or LOTR.)  It was very refreshing to have Moira Queen be such a powerful force in Arrow, for instance.  But in The Flash, we're right back to the "dead mother" trope.

This is fascinating. More than one prostitute says a plastic bag is less likely to tear than a condom. If that's the case, condoms really need some work.

Donald Trump, 2015: What do these losers think they're doing donating money to politicians for political influence? They should just run for themselves.

+dave arnold it was fine. I swear they film these movies to make you motion sick. The camera doesn't need to zoom around an apartment to keep me interested.
