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... »

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... »

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... »

Letter to Parents of Autistic Teen, Max Begley: “You have a Retarded Kid, deal with it!” Not a Hate Crime

  WTF is wrong with people? I have seen some pretty crazy shit in my lifetime but nothing compares to the disturbing letter written by an anonymous Newcastle, Ontario neighbor calling herself, “One Pissed Off Mother” urging the parents of a 13-year-old autistic teen, Max Begley, to “…take whatever non-retarded body parts he possesses and donate it to science…R... »

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... »
