I'm not a big fan of her, but the "Ban Bossy" is not about telling women/girls not to be bossy, but about not labeling girls as bossy which has pejorative connotations, but about affirming their leadership skills. It's a word used mostly towards girls (whereas "bossy" boys are considered leaders) because our paradigm is still that girls should be "good" and "cooperative" while boys are supposed to "take charge."

Maybe we are all missing the point--I think this poem is so epically bad in order to punish the accused bomber. If this poem was about you, wouldn't you feel like a failure?

Also, in surprising news of her pretentiousness, she used to ask people to pronounce her name "AmAHNda" because "that's how they say it in Germany." Sometime you like the people at your college, and sometimes they are Amanda Palmer.

My kid will go to private school for smaller class sizes and more individual attention. I'm also an educator, and it is not true that adding a few "privileged" kids will help all the others. While race, class, and money are extremely tangled in our society, my choice for my kid has nothing to do with wanting her to just be with white kids (and why is rottentomatoes acting like everyone is either white or black? Other races/multiracial people exist!) but everything to do with wanting my kid to love learning.

I have a child as well as pets--and I just shelled out about 2k for dog surgery (veterinary pet insurance
Paid out for and additional1500), so having kids didn't change anything!

I wish the youths had been mauled by angry cougars instead of bears.

Funny that #1 wrote "god id perfect." Does the blood of Jesus excuse typos in His name? Any god whose best solution to sin (in his creation) is to tack his own child up on a pole is a god who shouldn't be encouraged.

For those who are anti-breeding--please don't!!! Also, adoption is not quite the scenario that Annie might lead us to believe--it can take years and many countries who have a surplus amount of the babies are not letting Americans take them.

I thought for sure it was from Snooki's book.
