“Wait, Hannah Montana counts as "old, normal Disney." I'm only 25, but I must be old already. That is my generation's bad Disney. Everybody knows the "old, normal Disney" is the awesome stuff like Tale Spin, Chip & Dale Rescue Rangers, Darkwing Duck, and Duck Tales.”

“How does that fact automatically make one narrow-minded and intolerant? I live in a town in Wyoming. Though it is one of the largest towns in the state, it is still Wyoming and so not very big. According to the latest census, .7% (note the decimal point) of the population listed race as "African-American." Due to location, I don't have any black friends. In high school I was in a more racially diverse town, and had black friends. Sometimes it is a matter of location, not choice.”

“I sometimes wonder if there are more allergies, of if they are just not having the affect they would have had before. If this girl had been born 50 or 100 years ago, would she still be around and going to school by robot, or would her allergy have killed her long before she reached 14?”

“His quote really bothered me too, that part especially, but really the whole thing. It seemed like it was getting into the whole defining people by a group rather than as a person thing. His brother's friends aren't hilarious because they are gay, they are hilarious because they are funny people.
Even though it bothers me, I can understand him wanting to avoid the gay rumors. As unfortunate as it is, there are people that feel like a gay actor can't "play straight". It could be harder for him to get roles because of it. I think it would be better if he just stood up to that, but it can also be pretty hard.”

“Yeah, it can be. I'm in the Screen Actors Guild. For years I was told to stay in the closet, to protect my career. I opted to find another career. That industry is nuts anyway.”

“Even then, it is probably a case of them not knowing anybody openly gay. I'm straight, but I was lucky enough to grow up in a small town that was surprisingly open minded toward homosexuality and other differences. There were several openly gay kids in the high school and one of the fixtures of the town is a guy that is straight, but wears very short, fluffy skirts whenever he goes out. Unfortunately, most small towns are not so lucky and a lot of people have to hide who they are.”

“I was with you until your last statement. Asexuality is just another stop on the crazy spectrum of sexuality and there is nothing wrong with it. But, he should have been honest about it from the start. But, he lied to her about his sexual desires before the marriage. It is a discussion that should have occurred since sex was something that was important to her. He isn't free of her, and she isn't free of him; now they are both free to express their individual sexualities with somebody that shares the same level of need. It's just too bad it took 11 years.”

“I said, in my second sentence, that he should not have deceived her. Unless they have children, they are not linked in any way. How are they not free of one another?”

“I assume you're referring the the theory that I've also heard about this basically being why he did what he did in Vegas. The family wasn't willing to send him back to Afghanistan, so he basically go into as much trouble as he could so they would want to "punish" him and make it so he couldn't do that again for a while. If this really is the case, then bravo for him.”

I Want My Daddy (UPDATE)

Commented May 7, 2012 at 13:23:05 in Divorce

“I actually saw it fairly clearly that the child doesn't see his father. The "why don't you ask him?" seemed more of a rhetorical statement. As for the restaurant, she was bemoaning his selective memory. He remembers going there, but he only remembers his father being there, not his mom.

As for the other reply to this comment, she didn't move out the state, she immediately left to go visit her parents. She then came back to the town where she had lived with her husband, as is obvious by the fact they frequently go past the restaurant where they used to eat when they were all together.”

LaDonna Survant on May 7, 2012 at 14:39:24

“You must have read a different article if you saw that clearly because it didn't say ANYWHERE that the child didn't see his father. PLUS she made another post afterward clearly stating that her and her husband have joint custody of the boy to clear up any confusion for those who have reading comprehension problems.”

Mom Jeans: A Merit Badge of Motherhood

Commented Apr 24, 2012 at 18:03:31 in Style

“I'm afraid of sound snarky, but I really am impressed you can still wear men's jeans after the physical changes that happen when you become a mom. I'm not one, yet I haven't been able to actually fit well into men's cut jeans since I was about 14 or 15. If they fit my waist, there is no way they are going to be comfortable around my hips and thighs. I sometimes have problems with women's jeans with that problem, but at least they are designed somewhat more to handle a few more curves. It's not that my hips and thighs are excessively huge, it's just that there is enough of a size difference to make it difficult. Fashion was not designed for the hourglass figure, no matter what they claim.”

“Definitely not true. Children tend to have much more sensitive palates than adults, that is why many of them will reject foods based on tastes such as bitter or sour or salty that adults can't even taste. And, there are just some foods that people don't like. I don't like squash. It wasn't due to lack of exposure, my mom loves squash and would make it frequently when I was growing up, there is just something about the taste that I don't like. I've heard that kids have to try somethings at least 7 times before they like them, so you may have to expose your child to something several times, but if they don't like it after that, they probably just don't like it. I think the importance there is teaching your kid to try new things. Preferences can change as somebody gets older. I used to hate cranberries (probably my more sensitive kid tastes didn't like the bitter), but when I was older I was willing to try them again, and now I love them”

“I'm so torn when I see articles like this. I'm really happy to see students at the school being so accepting of their homosexual classmates. But, by crowning her homecoming king, it seems like they are perpetuating the inaccurate stereotype that lesbian women secretly wish they were men. Same when they crown a gay student homecoming queen. If she identifies as female, it seems she would still be homecoming queen. But, at least she seems quite happy with it.”

“I agree with you wholeheartedly. The thing that bothers me is that she is a woman who presents herself as a woman (short haircut, notwithstanding). If they wanted to honor both of them they should have just had two queens.”

“It does work if she is the only one sending her sick kid to school, she even points this out when mentioning the dearth of parents that think the same way she does. You don't get the immunity benefits if everyone stays home. I think people should keep a very ill child home, but a runny nose shouldn't be a reason to keep a kid home.”

“You have this all backwards, your story is exactly why it was good for your child to be exposed. In fact I hope they got it! Chicken pox gets worse the older you get. I got them at about 8 and my dad was about 40. I was merely itchy and a little fevery, but was mostly okay, my dad was horribly sick from it. I am glad to know that now that I have had them when I was younger, I'm not going to have to worry very much about going through the hell that is chicken pox at 40.

I'm not saying I'm a total supporter of "chicken pox parties", but when I compare my dad's and your experiences with them to mine, I'm really glad I was exposed when I was young.”

icariushigh on Sep 29, 2011 at 13:19:36

“My point is that if the chicken pox child had not infected everyone else then the mother would not have become sick. If someone wants their child to experience chicken pox then they can purposely expose their child. Don't just force it on other people.”

“When learning about the justice system in school, I always heard you had to be proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. It certainly sounds like there was reasonable doubt here! I haven't read enough to form a strong opinion on his innocence, but it sure seems like there was some doubt. With a man's life/death on the line, it sure seems like that doubt should have been assuaged before the execution should occur. Any doubt should mean no death penalty.”
