On an even broader scale, looking at labels of sexuality is a great way to become increasingly aware of the countless other labels and stereotypes that surround us. It's important to constantly be conscious of the words we are using to identify others, and to ensure we are not using them in ways that negatively limit or categorize them.
Presented as containing some damning revelations, upon closer examination the emails simply produced more yawns. They contained nothing proving any kind of wrongdoing on the part of Clinton. (Unless Clinton aide Huma Abedin using emails to organize a small dinner for the former secretary of state now qualifies as wrongdoing.)
No matter how much you want to protect the privacy of someone receiving a structured settlement, someone else with a fancy computer or data mining program is going to find them and make them an offer to buy their payments.
A major reason for the so-called "crisis" in psychology is the fact that a very large number of not-well-designed, and not-carefully-run studies have been making it through peer review for decades.
In that moment of Minaj speaking out, she was not only silencing Cyrus and a system that has far too often told her to bite her tongue, but also the media for constantly being on the white side -- as opposed to the right one, the equal one.
Today, you can begin to create the moral hero within who will act fast and instinctively tomorrow. Or you can deepen and reinforce the good tendencies you already have. It's up to you.
Ever wonder about the mysterious world your brain travels to when you start to daydream without notice, or when you experience that dreamlike, transcendental state that briefly occurs before you jolt up in a slightly confused haze?
Actors Silverman and Dellapina, who plays guitar and sings nicely along the way, perform well together, and Westrate has some effective stretches. If on arrival he were to play Nate as less immediately psychotic, Ziegler's script might have a more insinuating dramatic arc.
With people remaining healthy and vibrant well into their 60s, the once-mandatory retirement age of 65 no longer makes sense. Those able to continue working benefit greatly from the positive health improvements that comes with keeping their minds engaged.
My alliance is obviously with the pro-choice contingent, but I was disappointed with their advocates making no mention of people with Down Syndrome. They only spoke about "Down Syndrome" as a potential cause for concern for expectant mothers.
Maybe it was his initial dismissal of Oprah's Book Club. Or perhaps it was his claims that "Twitter is the ultimate irresponsible medium." The Time magazine cover with the slogan "Great American Novelist" probably did not help neither.
This is comedy satire at its best and it works because show creator Victor Fresco has the ability to make the absurd sound perfectly reasonable.
Where is the buzz about the fact that sexual violence in conflict continues to be accepted as "collateral damage" in all forms of conflict all over the world? When will the stigma be removed from victims and placed onto their perpetrators?
While shopping on Amazon may be a warm and amiable breeze, working for Amazon is an endless and excruciating violent tempest, according to a New York Times report on conditions among the company's beleaguered white-collar employees.
If someone really thinks the great "email" story -- or the Benghazi investigation -- are going to sink her candidacy, I've got a bridge to sell them.
What the corporate media cannot see is that the era of the Bill Clinton "New Democrat" is finished. In the real world, the crash of 2008 blew the lid off the bipartisan "Washington consensus" with its blind faith in the benevolence of capitalism. But now I see a silver lining in the absurdity of the "permanent campaign": Bernie Sanders has a whole year to build a vibrant, multifaceted social movement.
