All links go to the Cantor Q&A. The amazing autobiographical article is here: http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archiv…

Thanks for the heads' up- great read.
Mar 8, 2013 Marone commented on Breaking: Center School Race and Gender Curriculum Reinstated—Mostly.
Wait, what? Courageous Conversations was specifically written for professionals working with K-12 students. The book itself wasn't meant for students, but the curriculum inside it is.
Jan 26, 2013 Marone commented on Slog Poll: Choose the Abortion Graphic!.
One more vote from a pro-choice human for "this totally misses the point."
Dec 26, 2012 Marone commented on Chastity Bears!.
Apparently during the seminar girls also write letters to their future husbands. I can only assume that this means on the wedding night, grooms get presented with a well-"loved" bear and a 12-year-old's feelings about destiny.

Judd Apatow, that comedy premise is all for you.
Dec 16, 2012 Marone commented on I Am Adam Lanza's Mother.
Thank you for posting such a brave article. Having to wonder if jail is the safest place for somebody you care for is a scary, isolating thought. I work in the mental health field and have struggled significantly about the best way to balance helping and humanizing my violent clients. I can't imagine what it's like to be the loving mother of these children (and adults).

@9 I think banning surrogate motherhood would indeed imply just that, but right now the regulations and support systems just aren't there. Similar to my feelings about prostitution, it's not about banning it outright, but putting protections into place.

@24 BECAUSE of Mr. Farmers Tan Hipster Beard, USA all the way.

But actually I am pretty sure the winner is us.

I've been eying ChuMinh from my normal banh mi place... I'll have to drop by one of these days!
Nov 23, 2012 Marone commented on $500,000,000.
I've signed the petitions and all that, but I must admit they very much feel like a waste of time.

Is there an organization I can donate to that is providing aid or advocacy for LGBTQ Ugandans?

Usually Pat Robertson makes me angry, but in this clip he just seems so... well, miserable.
