Ah, that common refrain. You shouldn't just get a trophy for participating. When everyone gets a trophy, nobody wins. If everybody is special, nobody is special. Second place is last place. And on ...

Lately there has been a lot of misinformation spread about Planned Parenthood in an attempt to defund them. The New England Journal of Medicine recently released a statement clarifying why they not only support Planned Parenthood but why they find the attacks unethical.

"We strongly support Planned Parenthood not only for its efforts to channel fetal tissue into important medical research but also for its other work as one of the country's largest providers of health care for women, especially poor women....The contraception services that Planned Parenthood delivers may be the single greatest effort to prevent the unwanted pregnancies that result in abortions....

"We are outraged by those who debase these women, this work, and Planned Parenthood by distorting the facts for political ends."

Rape culture is a contract we never actually signed. It’s a contract that says Hey, sure, you can totally say and do anything you want to my body — you deserve it! The contract is signed for us before we are born, and it’s waved in our faces throughout our lives.  There are a lot ...

Strong evidence that police deliberately ruled this as a suicide while ignoring anything that pointed to homicide, including signs of a beating and clothing items not belonging to victim.
There were no other swings to act as a step, and nothing the 17-year black teen, Lennon Lacy, could have stood on to hang the noose, then kick away.

Someone in the federal government needs to step in with force to stop this abusive and lazy policing.

More children are “growing up godless” than at any other time in our nation's history. They are the offspring of an expanding secular population that includes a relatively new and burgeoning category of Americans called the “Nones,” so nicknamed because they identified themselves as believing in “nothing in particular” in a 2012 study by the Pew Research Center .

Consider that at the worst point in the Great Depression unemployment averaged 25% nationally and at the worst point in the last recession it was 10%.
Vox.com
A new poll shows Americans (as well as people worldwide) wildly overestimate their country's unemployment rate.

Story
Tagline
My two main characteristics are insatiable curiosity and stubbornness.
Introduction
Essayist, contributor at Synchronized Chaos, body image educator, domestic violence survivor, mother of 2 & grandma of 3. Married to David Grassi McDaniels. I write about body image, violence against women, poverty and class issues, racism and various progressive issues. I also enjoy cooking and sometimes post recipes or links to recipes at Livejournal and Facebook. If more friends join google plus I may do so here as well. I run a recipe group on Facebook.I'm a vegetarian but not a preachy one. I'm old enough to know not everyone is going to give up meat but I encourage people to find sources other than factory farmed meat and to reduce consumption so animals are no longer living in crowded pens and feedlots. Meatless Mondays are a start.
Bragging rights

My husband brought home a loaf of bread last night from this store, "Old Home Wheat Bread." I opened it up later that evening and the bread was dry and hard and moldy, from the first slice all the way through the loaf. It was past its sell by date (Feb 9). Trying to get them on the phone and it's perpetually busy. Hoping to get a refund. Not a great first experience so far but if they refund us I'll feel better about them. It's conveniently by the medical center so if you need something after an appointment you can stop by. He says it's a mom and pop store so I'm rooting for them to do better about going through their stock in the future.
