Dad Opens Up About Adopted Son In Powerful Ad

The Huffington Post | Caroline Bologna | July 1, 2016 | Parents
A poignant Jockey ad puts the spotlight on adoptive families.  In a video for the brand's "Show 'Em What's Underneath" campaign, dad Michael Cottone talks about his son Vin while engaging in skin-to-skin bonding with the baby. "A few weeks ago, it was just me and my wife. And now, I’m a dad,” he narrates. Cottone and his wife, Brigit, wanted to start a family but struggled to get pregnant, so they turned to adoption. "Vincent’s birth mother, she's amazing," the dad says. "The strongest person I’ve ever met. And she picked us. That’s an unbelievable feeling -- that she has the feeling in her gut that we are the ones to be his father, his mother." Watch the full video above for more powerful words from the new dad. H/T

Woman Tells Men To STFU About Abortion In 3 Glorious Sentences

The Huffington Post | Jenna Amatulli | July 1, 2016 | Women
Don't mess with Heidi. She's had enough of men speaking on issues that impact women's bodies. In what is probably the greatest letter to the editor of all time, a woman named Heidi Seltz wrote to the Minneapolis Star Tribune with a request.  After the paper published two letters from anti-abortion men regarding the Supreme Court's landmark  ruling on Texas' insanely restrictive H.B. 2 abortion legislation, Seltz weighed in with a strongly-worded letter to the editor.  "Perhaps newspaper readership among young people would grow if every time we opened a paper, we didn't have to read old men's fusty opinions about uteri," she wrote. (See the full letter below.)  Heidi is sick of your bullshit. pic.twitter.com/7TGEz5Q3TD— Stacey Burns (@WentRogue) June 30, 2016 Damn, Heidi. The Supreme Court's historic decision to strike down H.B. 2 was one of the most significant victory for abortion rights since Roe v. Wade.  Seltz's message to editors and men alike goes hand-in-hand with Ruth Bader Ginsburg's pointed concurrence to the June 27 SCOTUS decision -- specifically her commentary on the insanity of claiming that anti-abortion legislation "protects women." As Ginsburg wrote: Given those realities, it is beyond rational belief that H.B. 2 could genuinely protect the health of women, and certain that the law ‘would simply make it more difficult for them to obtain abortions’. When a State severely limits access to safe and legal procedures, women in desperate circumstances may resort to unlicensed rogue practitioners ... at great risk to their health and safety. Long live Notorious RBG and Heidi...

The Huffington Post | Cavan Sieczkowski | June 30, 2016 | Entertainment
Margot Robbie might be a superstar now, but 10 years ago she was just your average "Harry Potter" superfan.  The actress was chatting with Jimmy Kimmel about her new movie, "Tarzan" -- directed by David Yates, who also directed four of the "Harry Potter" films -- when the late-night host surprised her with a relic from her Potterhead days.  Behold Margot Robbie on her 13th birthday, in the thick of her "Harry Potter" fandom: "I am wearing glasses, which I didn't actually need," she revealed.

Cavan Sieczkowski | June 30, 2016 | Entertainment
It's happened to you -- just when you thought your phone was on silent, you hear the ringer go off. Lucky for Emma Watson, she's got a pretty epic one.  Watson was sitting down for an interview on U.K. morning program "Lorraine" with ITV's Mark Heyes to talk about her role as Belle on the upcoming live-action "Beauty and the Beast" when she got a phone call.  "That's so embarrassing," she said.  The song?
