kids
parenting
We spend way too much time policing other parents and not enough time helping other parents and their kids.
taking your kid to work
Even on days when he’s an over-tired little tyrant or will not stop grabbing the trackball out of the mouse, I feel extremely lucky that I get to have a job and see my kid. But as he gets older, I worry.
motherhood
I am not a mom, but I study them -- and the difficult work they do -- for about eight hours a day.
rape
“Forcible rape” excludes a host of sexual violations which, despite conservative beliefs, really are rape. And, oddly enough, being told that what you experienced wasn’t “really” rape tends to have a detrimental impact on victims and survivors.
