Thanks for sharing this. I’m currently getting my masters in school librarianship (currently leaning towards high school, though my certification will be K-12) and I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. Teachers have a responsibility to make sure that their classrooms are safe, accepting spaces and it really… » 4/11/15 2:13pm 4/11/15 2:13pm

Any plans to have a feature about affordable travel options/advice for people on a tight budget? I would love to travel more, but both my boyfriend and I make very little money. We'd both love to travel out of the country (I have before, he hasn't) but aren't 100% sure how to make that happen or where we could afford… » 4/06/15 4:06pm 4/06/15 4:06pm

Can someone please explain to me why adults are allowed to participate in easter egg hunts at all? I get the ones who are accompanying toddlers or children who might need assistance, but if that’s not you, then stay the hell off the field. » 4/06/15 3:58pm 4/06/15 3:58pm

So, I don't have a story because I never had proof that my emotionally abusive ex was cheating on me. I'm pretty sure he did towards the end, and I'm pretty sure it was with a younger friend (who had always really looked up to him/had a crush on him). I wish I could tell you I dumped him, but he dumped me and then… » 3/21/15 4:32am 3/21/15 4:32am

I used to work for the Met in their Visitor Services dept, and we had super strict rules for tripod use (only allowed Tuesday-Friday, and you had to get a permission slip from the Info desk that needed to be taped to the tripod). This was also the case for any handheld camera extender (so I doubt they've ever allowed… » 3/04/15 6:23pm 3/04/15 6:23pm

This one is actually my dad's story. So, my dad likes to drink Manhattans occasionally. My dad also sometimes likes to have a Perfect Manhattan, a standard variation on a Manhattan with equal parts dry and sweet vermouth rather than just sweet. It's not an unusual request. » 3/02/15 12:15pm 3/02/15 12:15pm

One time when I was playing with the dolls that my grandmother would buy me in an attempt to make me a girly girl, I stripped the clothes off all of them except for one. I then arranged all of the naked dolls in a circle around the clothed doll, with their legs bent back and their arms up, clearly worshipping her. My… » 2/20/15 9:10pm 2/20/15 9:10pm

As a Manhattan kid, I grew up with Rudy's fuckery and am not surprised by this in the least. This is the same man who actively tried to defund AIDS organizations in NYC. » 2/20/15 1:32pm 2/20/15 1:32pm
