Just a heads up that no one involved in this "empowering" re-do of the handicap is a wheelchair user. As a wheelchair user myself, I find this project super condescending and not at all empowering. I more »

They don't, though. In my years of retail experience (thanks history degree!) it's white people - white prep school kids in particular - who shoplift the most. Bored white kids whose parents shield th more »

Don't lie. If a half-dozen looters erases your sympathy for a community that watched cops gun down their unarmed neighbor, you never had any sympathy to begin with. Property is replaceable, especially more »

He said himself that it wasn't kneeing, that Smith didn't hit him, and that his right knee twisted and popped funny *when he landed*. It looked like a dive on live TV, but slowed down gifs you see tod more »

"we should keep in mind that the restraining order process (209A) is commonly used by divorce lawyers to assist woman in removing their husbands" Someone got lost on his way to r/MensRights, I see. more »

Yes, yes, yes, a million times, yes!
The "War on Drugs" has been an obscenely expensive failure. Anyone who wants to stop caging people up for non-violent drug offenses has my vote.

I'm not the one responding from a place of ignorance; you are, Danskat. Did it ever cross your mind that I might be disabled myself? That I might be someone who can't walk, uses a power wheelchair an more »

"threatening to rob him of his ability to walk."
Oof. That's some melodramatic ableism there.

It's not Card's opposition to gay marriage that appalls people. It's his hatred of gay people. He's called them every name in the book, compared them to child molesters and blamed them for the perceiv more »

How about a story about the amputees who weren't "lucky" enough to incur their injury in a high-profile attack and who struggle to pay for a basic prosthesis and can only dream of blades? Instead of p more »

I don't understand why they don't create a "T Zone" for communities served by the MBTA and raise the gas tax just in those cities and towns. That would be fairer to central and western MA. Also, I h more »

So, in three years we've gone from two women on the Bruins broadcast to none.
Way to alienate the female fans who offer the potential for market growth. Brilliant business decision.

I'll buy the "ZOMG MAH FREEDUMS!" outrage over limiting soda sizes at restaurants when I see the same outrage over size limits for beer at sports events and/or over MA's happy hour rules. You may not more »

Oh no! This makes me so sad! I've spent so many hours in there. I'll miss them terribly.

My response to Jacobs mirrors the response Deadspin had for Trump.

She's not a trophy bimbo looking for a handout. She's a lawyer and played an active role in the business that made them both wealthy. I know it's hard not to judge women you know nothing about, but sh more »

For some insight into why "creep" is gendered, you should read the essay "Schrodinger's Rapist." http://kateharding.net/2009/10/08/guest-blogger-starling-schrodinger%E2%80%99s-rapist-or-a-guy%E2%80%99 more »

"watch partner take her pill in front of him" That's out of line. Either you trust your girlfriend or wife, or you use a condom. Enforcing another adult's medication choices is creepy and abusive. Alt more »
