What, no Persimmon Cookies? They were a holiday cookie platter staple of my childhood in California.

I agree this isn't any kind of "victory" if everyone still has access to boobs and penises (arguable more access). It might be kinda nice for people with kids not having to explain what "adult all access pass" is to their 5 year old, but that was an overblown problem anyway that could easily be solved with a "leave it alone, i'll explain it when your older".

Speaking of Porn: What did you think of that #pornkillslove that surfaced on twitter a few days ago? I bet they are shitting themselves over this.

It's like Footloose but gayer and more infuriating!

I always read these "never forget" type pieces with mixed feelings. Part of me is grateful we CAN forget. Even being a child in the late 80s and early 90s I knew the horror that was going on and the fear that people were feeling. It can be an incredibly paralyzing memory if you let it.

Why aren't we going after the prosecutor and investigators? Susan Ruiz, Kelly Currie, Tyler Smith, and Melanie Hendry. We should be shaming THEIR names and pictures on every social media account gay people have access to and publicly protesting these puritanical money grubbing opportunists.

I hope you have Ciliac disease, otherwise cut the gluten free bullshit.

And that wilted lettuce looks gross. You'll never convince me to eat cooked romain. Spinach, kale, char, or arugula would be OK.
