Hip Mama Cover Banned Because Breasts Being Used For Breastfeeding Are Just So Scandalous

Hip Mama Cover Banned Because Breasts Being Used For Breastfeeding Are Just So Scandalous

I absolutely adore Ariel Gore, the publisher of Hip Mama magazine, and her books helped me through my pregnancies and she was the first parenting writer I ever really related to. Hip Mama is awesome and the latest issue hits newsstands next month, but not with the cover image Ariel wanted for it, because newsstands refuse to carry it due to the fact it features Barcelona-based artist Ana Alvarez-Errecalde breastfeeding her four-year-old son.

Share This Video With Every Anti-Vaxxer You Know

People actively choosing not to vaccinate are making other people sick. These people benefit from science, in the form of living in a society that can still claim herd immunity to most diseases – yet they think it’s their own good constitution and denial of vaccines that is keeping their families healthy. Not even recent, large scale outbreaks scare these people – whose unwillingness to recognize the benefits of modern medicine knows no bounds. More »

Students Posting Snaps Of Sad Lunch Shows Michelle Obama Needs To Revisit Her Lunch Initiative

I’m a fan of Michelle Obama and her almost 600 dollars sneakers. I love FLOTUS, even though just like every other rich person in the US she seems to be a bit out of touch as what life is like for us normal non-presidential people. Including her initiative to re-vamp school lunches in hopes of combatting childhood obesity. I’m not the only one who feels this way, because sad students are posting snaps of their sad lunches on social media and blaming Mrs. Obama. More »

Satan Is Using Graham Crackers To Push His Agenda Of Sin, Says Moron

Did you know there exists something called the American Decency Organization? Hmm – what could they possibly do? Advocate the merits of saying please and thank you? Talk about how important it is to hold doors for people? Manufacture those dummy turtlenecks you slip under shirts cut too low? That last one is a good guess, but no. They make it their mission to be sure we all know what Satan has his hands in – and this month it’s graham crackers. Graham crackers are the devil’s work. Damn it, Satan – you always get your hands on the good stuff. More »

7 Things I Hate About The Playground

With springtime rapidly approaching, many of us will undoubtedly find ourselves at the childhood mecca known as the playground. As delightful as it is for the kiddos, many moms will inevitably leave stressed and exhausted. Recently, I made my own list as to why that may be. So for all of us that often leave with the need for a drink (or ten), I present seven things I hate about the playground: More »

All Girls High School Education Taught Me More About Sex Than Any Backseat Fumbling

All Girls High School Education Taught Me More About Sex Than Any Backseat Fumbling

The sex ed offered at my high school was far above the grade that most students are entitled to in this country, which is something that makes me seethe with rage. I have pretty mixed thoughts about single sex education and my high school in particular, but after making it through six years at an all-girls school I will tell you one thing: the sex ed I received at that single sex looney bin was incredible, and most of it happened outside the classroom.
