Sisterhood of the Sensible Moms

I want to live in a world where wearing lip gloss and understanding quantum physics is not mutually exclusive. I want it to be normal for baking and welding to coexist on a hobby list.

I will educate my daughter as best as I can. I will raise her to be strong, to fight back, to be herself and be proud of who she is. I will raise her to realize how ignorant a 50-ish man with salt-and-pepper hair can be. Who's with me?

Molly Fosco

It's disappointing that this story got so much attention when the purpose was more about attacking and demeaning an individual than attempting to help a victim of abuse. I hope that Lena is strong enough to move past this and come out a stronger person.

John Marcotte

I've dressed up in costumes that ranged from silly, to creative, to scary. Hell, if I could pull off sexy, I might go for that, too -- but I really appreciate the fact that when I go to the store, I have other choices. I hope that someday my girls will be able to say the same.

Take that desk of yours and decorate the sh*t out of it until it magically transforms into that corner office. To create the ultimate workspace, start by making it homey and personal with a jolt of energy. Think ambient lighting, warm pops of color and personal touches like artwork.
