Jenna Cole, normalizing day drinking, wants you to “make use of your privilege” by helping her legalize marijuana. In her latest post she takes on the justice system for penalizing non-white non-upper-middle-class-SAHMs merely for enjoying the cheeb.
…27.6 percent of drug offenders were locked up for crimes related to marijuana…Many, I would argue most, were participating in an act no worse than anything I’ve done – possessing marijuana. Except I’m white, and I had $60 in cash to pay for 5 minutes with a weed doctor in exchange for a “medical marijuana card” and I can afford to choose an employment position that doesn’t do drug testing.
She then took her reasoning to facebook, where she claimed that “normalizing” marijuana use would be a main decider for legalization. When readers argued that it probably had more to do with states wanting that sweet sweet taxable money from legal regulation, she took the discussion in a weird direction.
Let’s compare this to…. abortion. If more women spoke openly about their abortions, do you think that would accelerate public opinion toward unrestricted access to safe and legal abortions. This is a move that some feminist groups are working at right now, to change public opinion on a political issue via normalization. Do you also think this is not effective?
Well, DO YOU? Ok, I sort of see where she’s trying to go with this, but the analogy doesn’t really work here. Access to safe medical terminations for all women is not really the same thing as Jenna wanting to be “one step closer to getting high on vacation”. But keep on looking for ways to remind us you’re a stoner now, Jenjen.
Neely somebody, that blogger who is basically only known for slamming her wedding photographer, has announced she and her goblin husband are expecting.
Andrew and I are overjoyed to announce that baby BOY Moldovan will be joining our family in February. It’s been quite the journey to get here but we feel beyond blessed to be this little guys parents! #MiniMoldovan #OurMiracle
I really want to care about this but I don’t. Honestly doubt anyone else does either. All I can think is ‘sympathy ploy in the lawsuit game’. But hey, good job locking down your pregnancy hashtag!
Eric Hites, the fat guy who said he would ride his bicycle across America but instead fiddlefarted around for a year before returning home, has announced that he and his little garden gnome wife are trying to produce a children’s book.
Age range will be for any range as you can read it to a toddler and they can enjoy the colorful pictures and the words are simple yet be good for a first Grader.
Instead of spending the past 30 days getting real jobs, going to fitness boot camp, or riding daily like he claimed, Eric has instead opted to grift money for a binding machine so he and his all-but-illiterate wife can ‘write’ a book for kids.
Of course they are also selling bike chain key rings because everybody wants a piece of the fat guy adventure!
Order a key-ring with chain from Fat guy’s bike to help with the journey and to be a part of the journey. Soon he will be leaving from Dallas, Texas to complete his journey across America. Be a part of it today by supporting the ride!
Hasn’t the internet been ‘supporting the ride’ for like, 18 months? How about Eric supporting his own ride now? Ya know, with an actual job?
Jordan Reid, brave and feministy, has posted a new ramshackle ramble explaining why she has finally joined snapchat. She begins by explaining she’s like SO behind on technology, for reals, you don’t even know ok.
Twenty or so years later, my manager and I were sitting together at lunch and she took my phone from me and physically downloaded Instagram from the app store, because despite the fact that most of my colleagues had signed up a solid two years earlier, I would never, ever have done it otherwise.
I have never owned an iPod, and am still sort of confused about which device people’s music resides on these days (…the cloud, perhaps?). I’ve never taken the three seconds required to figure out how to reliably link my car’s Bluetooth to my phone. I still use MapQuest.
At first she implies it’s because she is such a too-cool rebel, saying “if you tell me something is “the new thing everyone is doing,” that will result in me very much not wanting to do it”, and if you make her do it she “will whine. And still not do it”. But like everything else with Jojo there is a first-world-problems story from her tween years that is the root of whatever problem she’s having.
She proceeds to blather on and on and on about some story from sixth grade – yep, roughly 25 years ago Jordan bought saddle shoes the day after the Cool Girl in sixth grade declared them so last week, and this has caused Jordy all the anxiety ever about showing up late to trends…or something. And she had to share this story in order to announce her bravery in overcoming this fear and joining snapchat.
Yeeeeah. Never has a blogger deserved more #sobrave hashtags.
Dooce, no one cares but it’s a slow news day so far, has revealed via podcast that she maybe made too big a deal out of her mental health. She says based on her years of posts where she brings up her variable moods, people apparently got the idea that she was actually mentally fragile – but that wasn’t really the case.
I did hammer the nail into my own coffin…I had crafted a narrative that I was the crazy neurotic wife…when he revealed to people that I was the one who asked for the separation all these people were like I can’t imagine what it was like to live with someone so mentally ill..
She went on to say most of her tales of instability were just “curated” stories she shared on her blog, but the “narrative” “worked against” her during the divorce because “a lot of people interpreted” her “as a deranged woman”.
