Ten things college professors hate. I’m going to guess teachers at other levels don’t like most of those things, too.
Some employers are still being jerks about contraceptive coverage.
“If we want to write Ulysses, our generation may not be sexting enough.”
“A few colleges are doing something else about the problem of campus rape: They’re buying new insurance policies designed to protect them when sexual misconduct scandals arise.”
“To many Americans, a towed car is a nuisance. A real one, yes, but in the scheme of things, no more than that. That’s wealth. That’s privilige. For many others, a couple hundred bucks is all it takes to destroy the fragile framework of what passes for security in their lives.”
“She took off his shirt, his skin glistening in the sun like a glazed doughnut. The glaze part, not the doughnut part.”
“Thanks to science (no, really, thanks), we now know that we all probably have tiny mites living on our faces.” You may now be thoroughly skeeved out.
In case you needed a reminder why workers’ rights and working conditions really, truly do matter.
Wage theft continues to be a major problem.
Please don’t try to donate human skulls to Goodwill.
What do you do with colleges that are trying to do right by their students but not doing a good job of it?
“What will happen to Baby Boomers stuck in suburbia once they can’t drive anymore? Where will an aging population with more disabilities live when we’ve built so little accessible housing?”
The best way to ruin a protest.
“I’d like to make two very specific points. Ms. Lawrence and the other victims have absolutely nothing to apologize for in terms of the contents of the photos or the nature in which they were leaked. The story itself should not be addressed as if it were a scandal, but rather what it is: A sex crime involving theft of personal property and the exploitation of the female body.”
“There are a few different issues that a criminal act like this brings up, but before I get into them it’s necessary to make one thing clear: If you deliberately seek out any of these images, you are directly participating in the violation not just of numerous women’s privacy but also of their bodies.”
If you must blame someone other than the thieves for all this, blame Apple and their crappy security. As a former BlackBerry admin, I still don’t understand why companies would think that iPhones are a good choice as enterprise devices.
What Nielsen rating numbers actually mean.
A five step plan to success as a foreign policy pundit.
If you’re making money via slut shaming, you really can’t call yourself a feminist.
“It never fails to astonish me that the same conservatives who argue that every last aspect of big government is irreparably broken and corrupt inevitably see a capital punishment system that is perfect and just.”
RIP, Joan Rivers. I don’t care what anyone else says, I always thought she was funny.
Meet the millionaires behind the Democratic Party.
“We’re all foreigners in a strange land … And besides, we don’t really have curse words in Japanese, so I like the fact that the Western languages allow me to say things that I otherwise can’t.”
“Heterosexuals get drunk and pregnant, producing unwanted children; their reward is to be allowed to marry. Homosexual couples do not produce unwanted children; their reward is to be denied the right to marry. Go figure.”
Why the power to make judicial appointments really matters. Someone please explain that, using small words if necessary, to Ralph Nader.
For all of the cold, calculated, business decisions that sports teams, especially NFL teams, make every day, it’s nice to know that they can still act with compassion when they choose to. Kudos to the Bengals.
If contraception isn’t covered by insurance, it’s not helpful if it’s sold over the counter.
