Women designing unique paths

31 states are so “pro-life” that they will ignore the pain and suffering of a living adult and overrule her wishes on how she wants to live the last days of her life in order to “protect” a fetus that cannot survive outside the womb.
One of the wonderful things about living in South East Asia is that Tamilians are part of the fabric. Tamil is a national language of Singapore (but not of India).
This is not to say there isn’t racism in this part of the world. That is also built into the fabric in some ways.
But, in the spirit of Deepavali, this ad is wonderful. His Tamil is excellent and the cognitive dissonance of hearing him speak it fluently gives me the warm and fuzzies.

Only in New York City. Amazing.

Do you think you’d get less flak about the cat “event” if you were the dad?
I’ve got five words for you: Man With the Yellow Hat. “Hey George, you sit here on the chain-saw assembly line, I have to go run some errands.” “Hey George, be a good little monkey and clean up this hot lava while I play with my geode collection.”
To be fair, his “child” isn’t human.
To be fair, he’s a grown man walking around Manhattan in safari gear, leaving his pet to drive fire trucks into lakes and paint skyscrapers. And everyone thinks that’s hilarious. I’m just saying. A Woman With the Yellow Hat would be carted off to Chez Lunatic while the monkey gets to host “S.N.L.” or something.
This is the Mom from “The Cat in the Hat”.
After the past couple of days where Virginia Wade was forgotten and Marion Bartoli was deemed an “Undeserving Ugly Fat Slut” by sexists, I am totally with the Mom.
