She saved the text message from four years ago, not a screenshot of the text message she took four years ago. The screenshot of the four-year-old text message could have been taken on Tuesday but that doesn't prove that it's a fake. The oldest text message on my phone is from February 2011, and I could open it up,… » 11/09/12 12:53pm 11/09/12 12:53pm

Eloquii is amazing and I'm talking them up everywhere I go. I just got an email this morning that they're opening their first "real" store—it's in Michigan, which is nowhere near me, but I hope this means they're going to open more. Finally, FINALLY I have a brand of clothing that fits my body, my aesthetic, and my… » 4/20/12 10:51am 4/20/12 10:51am

Pinterest becomes a much happier place once you've discovered/followed enough people to keep your front page so full that you'll never have to look at the "Everything" tab again. My Pinterest page is so completely covered in body positivity, plus size fashion, and feminist politics that it's a joy to log in every… » 3/19/12 6:12pm 3/19/12 6:12pm

I agree with you. It's always baffled me how so many of the people in my life who are otherwise into activism and justice will do anything to get out of jury duty. Jury duty is important. It's not fair to go on and on about fair trials and examining evidence and exonerating the falsely accused if you're not… » 2/23/11 11:37am 2/23/11 11:37am

Perhaps she wants him to go? Putting myself in Gabrielle Giffords' shoes, if I were making so much progress and I knew that my life wasn't in any danger, I would be guilt-stricken thinking that I was preventing my husband from doing something as monumental as going into space. I obviously can't speak for either of… » 2/09/11 11:28am 2/09/11 11:28am

I wonder how much of this is for show. Consider the "Happy Birthday" effect on Facebook—when it's my good friend's birthday, I call her on the phone or visit her in person. But if I don't ALSO publicly post a comment on her Facebook page for all the world to see, then people start to wonder if maybe we're not good… » 2/08/11 4:00pm 2/08/11 4:00pm

I think the point was more "this is really awesome stuff that you want to drink, and unlike all the other awesome stuff in your life that you can't have, your weight-obsessed wife will let you drink this shit while she's off assaulting innocent women who walk in or near your line of vision." Not that they made that… » 2/08/11 3:24pm 2/08/11 3:24pm
