~Stuff I pinned at my TIAW board.
~”The Deep Spiritual Practice of Not Giving a Shit” <--I need not say anymore. Except maybe that this is my favorite thing in a long time. ~Here’s a story of an awesome dad.
~Bit of a bummer, I’ve been looking forward to seeing the new Oz movie. I suppose, if this article holds true, it could, at the very least, become an interesting discussion with my 10 year old daughter.
~Mayim Bialik and her awesome hairy legs.
~A really great video about the appropriate use of the word “gay”.
~This one isn’t specific to women, but it’s certainly a story that many women will relate to. Either themselves, or as someone who knows someone who has struggled with addiction. Russell Brand turns out to be a phenomenal writer who openly shares his personal experience with addiction. I strongly suggest you read this and then pass it on because the more people who can understand addiction, the more people addicts will have to help them overcome it.
~This one was written a couple of weeks ago after the Oscars and all that shit went down, but I’m sharing it because it’s relevant always. It really bothers me that cunt is a bad word. I mean the WORST word you could possibly think of is a name for the actual feminine parts. WTF? Maybe it’s because I somehow missed hearing the word at all until I was nearly an adult, but I still think fuck is way worse in terms of shock value. And by that I guess I mean it shocks ME more because the evidence points to otherwise for I think every other person on this planet. In any case, I don’t mind the word at all – if it’s being used to describe my, well, my cunt. I don’t like it as a derogatory term anymore than I like pussy as a derogatory term. My hoo-ha is not your insult. Just like that video in a previous link about the word gay, use better words for your insults instead.
