So Paula Deen has a new cooking network. Not one show but a whole network. Tell me again about the poor racists having their lives ruined.
This is literally the cutest thing ever and this is a topic very close to my heart, as I adopted my kitten from the Humane Society. :-)

The whole article sadly hits very close to home.
We live in a society that’s sexist in ways it doesn’t understand. One of the consequences is that men are extremely sensitive to being criticized by women. I think it threatens them in a very primal way, and male privilege makes them feel free to lash out.
This is why women are socialized to carefully dance around these issues, disagreeing with men in an extremely gentle manner. Not because women are nicer creatures than men. But because our very survival can depend on it.
teacher: alright, since no one is raising their hands i’m gonna pick people
This hurts my heart every time I see it.
So dont look to Hollywpod to represent us. WE need to represent us.
