On The Duggars, (White) Privilege, And Religion As The Worst Crutch Ever

An unapologetic rant

When you become a parent, everything doesn’t change immediately, or over night. One thing I’ve noticed is that, while the big adjustments might take time, there are some little things that seem to change almost immediately. For me, one seemingly small thing was that I couldn’t stomache certain news stories anymore. Most of the time I have to change the channel when a baby’s body is found somewhere, or when I hear about young children being abused. It’s like my body just cannot handle that reality, whereas before I would feel shocked or angry, but it wouldn’t sit with me like it does now. So it’s hard for me to write about this, but I’ve gone from wanting to ignore this story, to reading more and more about, to being disgusted and now just plain pissed off. So fine. Let’s do it. Let’s talk about the fucking Duggars.

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Star Jesse Williams Takes To Twitter Over The Disgusting, Racist Verdict In Cleveland

"Count to 137. 1 cop shot 49 times, reloading twice. Count to 49."

Last night I was about to finish my Netflix excursion into the French film Girlhood when I saw that there was protesting in Cleveland over the horrifying, disheartening verdict in the case against Cleveland police Officer Michael Brelo. In a world where 13 cops can fire 137 bullets at an unarmed couple in a car—and one of those officers, Brelo, can stand on the roof of the car, in which the victims were already dead or dying, and fire 15 shots into the windshield—I’m not sure why there’s still confusion about the existence of systematic racism, sanctioned by the law. So, as always, I’m thankful that a handful of celebrities like Jesse Williams are publicly voicing their disgust and disappointment. Click inside for more.
