THROAT PUNCH THURSDAY

passing notes, bullying, teacher not paying attention, raising girls

What Happens When the Teacher Isn’t Paying Attention & Your Child Gets Hurt?

I don’t usually complain about my kid’s school. In fact, I mostly love their school. If you have children in a parochial school you already know this but kids who attend parochial just seem to consider consequences of actions more than the average kid. Our children’s education is based on a foundation of charity, family and faith. Kindness, compassion and respect for others is reinforced in the cl... »

Martha Stewart, bloggers

I think Martha Stewart Might Hate Bloggers but I’m No Expert

My Throat Punch Thursday this week goes to the lady with the disdain for the bloggers who work for her, Ms. Martha Stewart herself. You, my friends, are no experts and Ms. Stewart has a gripe about that. Well, I have a gripe with Ms. Martha Stewart and her condescending attitude towards bloggers and it all stems from this direct quote she gave in an interview. “Who are these bloggers? They’re not ... »

Her Name is Not FAT AMY, it’s Rebel Wilson & Her Weight’s None of Your Business

Let me start by saying that I think Rebel Wison is the tits. She is hilarious, gorgeous, brave and in your face. Brave because there is no topic she won’t take on. But still, as a woman, our bodies make us vulnerable and criticism is like kryptonite. No matter how hard you try to ignore the commentary outside of your head, the one inside is always worse. She is by far one of my favorite youn... »

Bitch Better Have My 300 Sandwiches-Throat Punch Thursday

Stephanie Smith, beautiful, seemingly intelligent, New York Post writer and author of 300sandwiches.com blog is on a mission to create 300 sandwiches for her gourmet wannabe Alexander Skarsgard lookalike boyfriend.(Shame on you Stephanie for even saying that.) Apparently, before he ever even gets his lazy ass out of bed he likes to ask her how why hasn’t she made him a sandwich? Yeah, a fuck... »

The French Ban Beauty Pageants & It’s About Time

French Government bans beauty pageants. So, looks like I might be moving to France! Don’t fret. I am raising girls and trying to raise them to value themselves on more than just what they look like and the size of their asses so a move may be inevitable. The French Senate voted early Wednesday to ban beauty pageants for children under 16 – and to impose up to two years in prison and steep fines of... »

Nina Davuluri, Miss America, Indian-American, Racism in the United States

Nina Davuluri was Crowned Miss America & if that Bothers You, You Might be a Racist!

I was going to write a post about my girls today, instead I am writing about Miss New York, Nina Davuluri, winning Miss America. Why? Because apparently racism is running rampant and it demands to be discussed so that our children know better. People are very ignorant and say awful things when hiding behind a computer. This story affects me and my daughters. We come from a culturally diverse backg... »

Miley Cyrus, Wrecking Ball

Miley Cyrus You Came In Like A Wrecking Ball ~Throat Punch Thursday

Dear Miley Cyrus, “Don’t you ever say I just walked away/ I will always want you/ I can’t live a lie, running for my life/ I will always want you” Haven’t we all been here? That one big love that just wrecks you. I’d say Miley is just about on time. I know I had a couple of these in my early 20′s. Because when you are 20, everything is HUGE and love is the... »

September 11th ~ A Mother’s Vulnerabilty Exposed

September 11th ~ Vulnerable. Like an open wound, that is how I would describe how I felt when I woke up this morning. There are instances in life that are so shocking, so painful and profound that you are stunned that they are actually even taking place. These are the events that your brain may willfully try to forget but you cannot because those same events are imprinted on your heart forever. We... »

Who’s Protecting Our Daughters?

It is once again Throat Punch Thursday and after the past two weeks, I feel like I might need to create a tab on my blog labeled misogyny gone wild. People, I don’t want to stay up here on this soap box defending women’s rights and equality but what is going on in the world? People have lost their damn minds and the world has declared rapid fire war on women. So today’s throat pu... »

Robin Thicke, Miley Cyrus., Blurred line, misogyny, slut shaming

Moral Blurred Lines for Robin Thicke & Miley Cyrus

  The Internet has blurred lines for Robin Thicke and deemed Miley Cyrus a whore. I am also sick to death of women protecting Robin Thicke for his part in the performance. Look, I am not saying that Miley Cyrus was some sort of unsuspecting innocent child and she got turnt out by big, nasty Robin Thicke. Nope, not saying that at all. In fact, what’s the big fucking deal? She is grown. H... »
