What One Man Really Thinks About Dating Bigger Women

Yesterday, I read an article about what men think about dating bigger women. It was called 15 Thoughts Every Guy Has When Dating A Bigger Woman and kept waiting to read that it was a joke; a satirical piece written about society’s treatment of overweight women.

Michelle Gregg I’m Sorry I Called You a Terrible Mom

A couple days ago, I wrote a piece about Michelle Gregg and the Cincinnati Zoo gorilla, Harambe, who was shot and killed as the result of a terrible situation gone out of control. A 4-year-old boy dodged out of his mother's sight and found his way into the gorilla enclosure. Meanwhile his mom watched helplessly as the [...]
