An Open Letter to Babble.com in Regard to Fertility Issues

  Dear Babble, What were you thinking running the article about Motherlode columnist, Amy Klein’s fertility issues, titled Should We Be Sympathetic to a 42-Year-Old’s Fertility Struggles? May I ask, were all the editors on vacation? Was there a hiatus on good judgment and common decency? Seriously, wtf were you thinking? Normally, I am a fan of Babble. Many of my friends write there and... »

Wireless Baby Monitor Hacked while Pervert Shouts Sexual Obscenities at Toddler~ Throat Punch Thursday

Did you know that a wireless baby monitor could be hacked? Did you use audio monitors when your children were babies? I did. In fact, I couldn’t have slept at all in the past 8 years without mine; sleeping in the same room was getting old. Now, video monitors and wireless cams are all the rage, the norm even, in baby monitoring. Technology has come so far, why wouldn’t we take advantage of the opp... »

Rolling Stone’s Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Cover is Unconscionable ~Throat Punch Thursday

Rolling Stone Magazine has got it’s August 1 issue all wrong by plastering a glammed up photo of  19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the Boston Bomber, on the cover of it’s latest issue. At first glance, you might mistake the young murderer for a cool devil may care attitude rock musician. He’s attractive with tousled hair, five o’clock shadow and a come hither stare and then you realize that yo... »

Robyn Lawley Says Size 8 is Plus Sized ~Throat Punch Thursday

Robyn Lawley launched a plus sized clothing line that starts at size 8.8!!!!! As if girls today don’t have enough of a challenging existence just trying to survive the teen years with their self-esteem and body image in tact, now we are labeling average sized women as plus sized.What message is that sending?

Dear Fat Chicks Please Wear Clothes That Fit You~Throat Punch Thursday

I saw the following on a message board. Am I surprised? No, because people are kind of assholes and people really act like assholes when they can hide behind a computer screen. “WHY do SOME very obese women wear clothes 4 sizes too small?” Apparently, we’ve never heard of the phrase, live and let live. Look, I am not so tragically obese that I roam the aisles of Wal-Mart with my belly ... »

Throat Punch Thursday~ You’re Crazy Edition

You’re crazy! Oh My God, she is acting so bipolar! I can’t go shopping this afternoon, I am so depressed! Get over it. Take a chill pill! Don’t have a panic attack. We hear these statements made almost daily. For some, they may seem harmless but to those of us who suffer from these diagnoses, it’s far from funny.  It’s serious.
