Morgan Baskin fights sexism on election trail | NOW Magazine
"If 18-year-old Morgan Baskin had known she would receive up to five unsolicited advances from men each day of her campaign, she might never have registered to run for mayor. Baskin, whose youth-focused platform has earned praise from media commentators and City Hall watchers, posted screenshots to her Tumblr page on Monday of correspondence she's received at her professional email and Facebook accounts since she joined the election. In one Facebook post, a man contacted her in April asking, "possible to call u [sic]?" When Baskin explained that she hadn’t set up a campaign phone yet, he wrote, “Not a campaign phone ur [sic] cell phone… Hoping to meet you end of May.” Other messages comment on her appearance and ask for her number. An email from a man Baskin met while canvassing says: "After I left to get on the subway it occurred to me how attractive you are … I was wondering if I could buy you dinner some time when you're not too busy?" Baskin posted these messages to Tumblr with... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet
"But Steph Guthrie, co-founder of Women in Toronto Politics (WiTOpoli), says that treatment like that which Baskin has received is a "standout reason" why women continue to be underrepresented in the political arena." - Heather

"When they come ashore to spawn it is at the mercy of the waves and tides. It is not uncommon for crabs to be flipped onto their backs by the incoming tide and never right themselves. The bodies of the unfortunate Chelicerata can be seen curled up on their backs a scant feet from the waterline. Even worse for the horseshoe crabs are man-made obstacles and debris, and every high tide brings more of them in to get trapped and eventually die." - Heather from Bookmarklet

You're filling your bottle of drinking water. Do you add cubed ice, crushed ice, or no ice?

Cubed ice, always. I'm surprised people keep selecting crushed ice on the work fridge. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
crushed - Mary Carmen
Cubed. Always. - Anika
Cubed. Rarely crushed. Maybe 1 out of 20. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Crushed! Depending how crushed is crushed. I prefer maximally crushed. - Meg VMeg
None because I fill it out of the tap at home or the filling station at yoga and it's just water. - joey
For drinks in a bottle (Gatorade, water, etc.), I'll do cubed. For drinks in a cup, I'll do crushed. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE from WinForFeed
No ice. The ice isn't filtered water so it tastes gross to me. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Is the water cold or room temperature? Is it summer? - Melly
Melly, let's say the water is cool and the room is warm. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Crushed whenever possible (which is never at the moment) - Soup in a TARDIS
I'd probably just have cool water. If I was feeling hot, I might add a little crushed ice. - Melly
I don’t care about the ice. I want my WATER crushed. - Akiva
Crushed ... I'm one of those terrible ice eaters. - Shannon - GlassMistress
No dice. - NOT THE CRICKET
I don't like refrigerator ice. It always tastes off. Usually bagged ice in the freezer. - Eric - Back to the Grill
None for me, thanks. - CAJ hates pants
I prefer crushed ice or nothing. - Janet
It all depends on the size of the opening on the bottle. Cubes won't fit into everything. - April Russo
Cubes in a bottle, they melt slower. - Heather
Nice 15 year TiVo bottle you're showing off there... - Brian Johns
and "none", please. - Brian Johns
Sparky, that's the one every employee got from the Blue Moon Fifteen Party a month ago. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
i skip the ice and i refrigerate the bottle in advance. - Big Joe Silence
Cubed if it's for water in my water bottle. Crushed for everything else, including to eat all by itself. - Hookuh Tinypants
No ice. - Steven Perez from Android
Oh yeah - I forgot. I thought it was part of your gift basket. - Brian Johns
No ice. I used to drink room temp water when I lived in Vegas. - Jenny H. from Android
No ice. - Mark H
^ That's my reasoning for putting ice in my water bottle as well, except with running. Between the sun and the heat of my body, the water I carry gets disturbingly warm. The only exception is at the gym. For some reason ice-cold water isn't refreshing during a workout, so I just go room temp. But in general, ice in the water bottle (besides, the body burns more calories with ice water versus room temp :) - Hookuh Tinypants
Always cubes. I want the longer lasting cooling effect you get with the reduced surface area of cubes vs. crushed. - Ken Gidley
If you want a longer lasting cooling effect, fill the bottle partially and freeze it. A nice big block of ice in there would work better than a bunch of cubes, and since it's going in as a liquid, there is no issue about the size of the opening. ;) - April Russo
Winter adds bottle-shaped ice here. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
For water, no ice. For sugary drinks, crushed ice. - Amit Patel
no ice, nothing but coffee and water for me please - chaz2b
Cubed for endurance. Crushed for cooling efficiency. None for time efficiency. Preference doesn't matter. - Ross Miller from iPhone
Shannon - GlassMistress
Pup-date. She is, amazingly, free of intestinal parasites and heart worm negative. The vet thinks one of the tumors may be on a mammary gland and the other is most likely just a fatty tumor. Both should be easily removed. Her rear knees aren't so great so she's a little gimpy but not in pain (they pop out of joint easily)
She needs shots, her teeth cleaned and maybe a few pulled, and a few good meals. She's about eight years old. Total bill was $200 and then the vet donated the exam and one month of flea meds, a nice lady in the lobby slipped me a $10, and step mom gave me $50 so my out of pocket was only about $60. Pretty cheap good deed. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I got her home and was getting her settled when my step mom called so say it was ok for her to stay with them tonight. Took pup over and she made a tour of the yard and of the porch where my folks were sitting, found a doormat to her liking, fell over, covered her eyes with her paws and passed out. Step mom is besotted ... And giving my dad the full court press :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
This is the best news I've heard all day. A toast to you, Baby and the impromptu crowdfunders. - Corinne L
I can't begin to tell you how awesome you are. - Janet
Really not, I swear. I just needed to do right by her since someone had done her so wrong. Probably makes me more weird than awesome :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
This is wonderful. You did good! - Katy S from iPhone
Please take the awesome, Shannon. Own it. You can feel mediocre another time. Today, though, I'm not having it. - Corinne L
I don't care if some people call it weird, it is awesome. FF has declared it so, you may not protest. You rock, deal with it. :) - Heather
Shrug. As you will :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Great job! - Jenny
This is making me so happy. What a lucky Baby :-D - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
" I just needed to do right by her since someone had done her so wrong. Probably makes me more weird than awesome :-) " oh sugar that so far from weird as to not be in the same universe. Brilliant is what it is. - MoTO: Tufted Coqeutte
Its all over! Step mom is looking for names :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress

Hating Women Was His Disease - Observer http://observer.com/2014... - I don't buy this, to be honest. I don't think virulent misogyny is a mental illness. I think it's a moral choice.
"Virulent misogyny" doesn't make sense as a mitigating circumstance for crimes like assault, rape, or murder. - Victor Ganata
I don't buy that any more than I buy into "I'm too rich to understand consequences." - Jennifer Dittrich
Judging by the ending, I guess the author is simply trying to soft-pedal the suggestion that virulent misogynists should be locked up. - Victor Ganata
He didn't only hate women, he wanted to possess them and hated everyone in his way. It's not a mental illness anymore than religiousness stemming from schizophrenia is in-and-of itself a mental illness. - Heather
He was also racist. - Johnny from iPhone

Alien-Lonely Hearts
I'm in love guys. - Heather from Bookmarklet
He's sweet, cuddly, a real looker, and has a physical uniqueness (both paws have toes that aren't separated all the way). - Heather
I was wrong, "lonely hearts" means he's been there over 3 weeks, longer than average. He's now at 50% adoption price. I'm not even a "cat person" and I want to take him home so bad. - Heather
Arg I need like $100 and I can get a cat and kitty supplies. >.> - Heather
Gimmer yer paypal address. I'm good for a few bucks. :) - Hookuh Tinypants
OMG, FF is like Kickstarter for cat adoption. lol Alien's off the website now though, I think someone scooped him up this afternoon. Maybe the next one. ^_~ - Heather
I am all about enabling people when it comes to pet adoption. :) All my cats are shelter pets, so. Y'know. I'm kinda biased. :D I'm always good for a little sumpin' when you find another one! - Hookuh Tinypants
At the rate I'm falling for cats, I might end up taking home the ICU kittens once they're in recovery. Adopt all the kittens! - Heather

This is what happens when you let hippies raise children in the country. They grow up and are like, "Wait...people can be...bad?
We all have a pretty big earnest streak. It bites us big time, but I think it is a good quality. Mr 13 has it, too. - sglassme
I must have been raised by hippies then. My mom often shook her head at how frustrated I got over "mean people". I guess she didn't realize I took all those Sunday school lessons to heart. - MoTO: Tufted Coqeutte
Wait..so there's gonna be a guy in a van giving us candy??? AWESOME. - Sarah G.

Are there online communities for young writers? My 13yo would benefit from being part of such a community.
I'd start with NaNoWriMo sites. I'll bet there's a separate board just for youth. - Spidra Webster
NaNo has a whole section for kids, I think they should have resources there too. Writing.com is a very open community (site is kind of confusing) but really customizable to what you want to see. - Heather
Fictionpress.com is good if she wants to post stuff and get feedback. I've worked with 13y.o.'s on there. - Jessie
there's some options listed here http://alpha.spellcaster.org/links... and here http://www.davidbarrkirtley.com/teenwri... - though I don't know how often links on that second one are updated. - ellbeecee
though from that second, http://www.teenink.com looks good, from a quick look over it - ellbeecee

Shannon - GlassMistress
Can someone explain the breastfeeding fight to me? Is it over the being able to do so whenever or where ever OR over doing so without modesty? New mama says she got the following note from a relative over her FB breast feeding photos. I see the point the writier is making and agree with it so maybe I'm confused.
NOTE: I'm so glad your son is doing better and healthy. But I will say your photo of him breast feeding is inappropriate and you might want to consider taking it down. I understand you should be free to be a woman and breast feeding is a natural thing but let's be real... We live in a time where men would eat that shit up and save your picture for future reference. I'm not trying to be rude but I feel the need to open your eyes a bit to the harsher side of reality just so you don't get burned for this in the future. You never know if a future employer might see this and not hire you because they view the picture as vulgar. Just my opinion, take it or leave it. Congrats on your little miracle!!" - Shannon - GlassMistress
New mama is livid "steam coming out her ears". Should she be? - Shannon - GlassMistress
Did she say why she was angry? - MoTO: Tufted Coqeutte
I think if it would have ended at the whole "saving the pic for later use" argument, it would not be as infuriating. The part about future employers is insulting. There is nothing vulgar about feeding your child. She is not in a Girls Gone Wild pic, flashing her breasts. Even if a future employer saw the photo and found it vulgar, that should not even be considered in the hiring... more... - Mary Carmen
Also, the whole comment just comes off as concern trolling. - Mary Carmen
What MC said. I wish I had coined the term "concern trolling." It so fits this post (and so many others). Like when she makes a good point about men "using it for later" in the same sentence as "eat that shit up." It's degrading someone while hiding behind a veneer of "helpfulness" - MoTO: Tufted Coqeutte
Short version, yes - her being angry is pretty well justified. Longer version - it sucks that people sexualize what is a really normal aspect of caring for infants, and there are some terrible people out there, but the concern trolling is not being supportive of the mother. The whole 'we live in a time' excuse just irks me, because it is a big old shrug of complacency masquerading as helpfulness. - Jennifer Dittrich
There are people who only see breasts as sex organs and not as food for babies. They see all nursing as disgusting - hence the concern trolling and their wish to keep feeding in the ladies' room. But why should a baby have to eat in places we would never eat? - Mary B: #TeamMonique from iPhone
She is angry that anyone would find fault in the images she is posting on FB of herself nursing the new baby. FB has asked her to remove them for nudity and that has angered her as well. She was quick to point out that the writer of the note 'knows nothing about motherhood' and since I dont either maybe thats why I dont get it. I have no issues with breast feeding in public but at the same time I dont really want boobs rolling through my FB feed. I guess that makes me a troll .. - Shannon - GlassMistress
All that said, as MC pointed out, there's no reason to be putting on a show. There are ways to nurse that don't reveal any breast at all, and there are also receiving blankets to throw over your shoulder. - Mary B: #TeamMonique from iPhone
This is a huge debate in mommydom. Shannon there is a difference between saying, I'd prefer not to see that, and removing the image from your FB stream, versus feeling the need to make a half-assed comment. Also, FB flagging it as inappropriate is also insulting. - Mary Carmen
Ok. I guess I'm wrong. I'm gonna go shake my cane at the kids in the yard. For the record I did not comment or stir the pot. I can see that my problems arent hers, and she can do as she wishes in her feed. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I'd be pissed, too. Breasts used for their biological purpose are only "vulgar" or *inappropriate* if the viewer thinks of breasts as sex objects rather than an infant's natural food source. Is a bottle in a baby's mouth vulgar? No? Then my nipple in my baby's mouth should also not be vulgar, as it is doing *exactly the same job*. Period. End of story. And people who object to... more... - Jenica
Shannon, no one thinks you're trolling here. We are just, "enthusiastically" answering your question. :-) - Mary Carmen
I'd be considerably angry at the commenter too. if you don't like my boobs hide the post or drop me. end of story. FB removing photos of nursing is a years old thing, thats not new. If a woman is confident to show photos of whatever style of nursing she likes more power to the mama! but to tell her to cover up? now we're back to shaming. and that just sucks. - Lnorigb
what Mary and Jenica said too! - Lnorigb
I totally don't think you're a troll, Shannon. I would have given you a very different answer four months ago. But now, as a breastfeeding mother, who has to navigate this social space? It feels like a really easy argument when it's not you. It feels totally different when it IS you. I should not have to take Gwyn to a corner, or a bathroom, or somewhere distasteful but "private" in... more... - Jenica
Oh, I know MC. No hard feelings here ... just sorta baffled. I'm not getting what's wrong with breastfeeding with a little modesty. But if a mom is comfortable putting it all out there she should be allowed to do as she pleases and bystanders like me will just have to deal. - Shannon - GlassMistress
My issue with the whole drama of breastfeeding pictures on Facebook is often more FB's hypocrisy - they'll happily show cleavage in ads, women in barely covering bathing suits, sexually suggestive material... and then oh, no! a baby feeding. Gotta shut that down. I don't think of you as a troll at all :D - Jennifer Dittrich
^^ that was her other post this morning. A sided by side of bathing suit boobs and breastfeeding boobs. The breastfeeding photo showed less than the bathing suit. But the photos she is posting of herself showed considerably more. Still, her feed, her phots and evidently her cause. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Would FB make someone take down breastfeeding photos if it was in a private album, or set to limited access ("friends," "friends except acquaintances," "family") rather than public? - Corinne L
I really dont kow Corinne. New Mom said someone reported her and that's how FB got involved. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Yes, FB removes breastfeeding photos from private albums and groups, even with no complaints. - Anika
Personally, I have no problem whatsoever with a woman breastfeeding in public assuming she is being modest about it, which I know 99% of women are. I also have no problem with photos being posted online (I must admit though, I just don't understand it...at all. It seems like a very personal, 1 on 1 experience), once again assuming modesty is being taken into account. I know I wouldn't... more... - Chris Topher
Another recent post by new mom has shed some light on what she's fighting for. It is an image from Bad Ass Breastfeeders of a woman breastfeeding and the following text "it undermines the power of a female body when a woman is told she must cover when breastfeeding". - Shannon - GlassMistress
People always gonna be offended by something, but that's THEIR problem. Censorship is a slippery slope, and that's EVERYONE'S problem. - Slippy: Potato Croquette
When I think of breastfeeding being offensive, I picture a woman taking her top off in a public space. That's a bit much and I don't see it as a breastfeeding issue so much as a nudity issue. Otherwise, it's no big deal. - Heather

I'm going to be a Kitten Care Specialist!
Which apparently involves a lot of diarrhea. :/ - Heather
Any advise, tips or whatnot about caring for 4-8 week old kittens is very welcome. - Heather
remember to wear long sleeves and thicker shirts because they have claws, don't quite know how to use them yet, and they like to climb. also they are !#!@#$ fast little gits. - Sir Shuping is just sir
wash your hands often, especially if you're handling sick ones because you don't want to transfer germs to healthy kittens. also sick kittens should be separated from other cats, like in crates in another room where the well cats can't get to them (i would hope the place that you're at does this) - Sir Shuping is just sir
We're going to have our own room ("Kitten ICU") and have a smock for each cage. Pretty sure they mentioned gloves. Good point about long sleeves! I'm hoping to get the shift right after my current shift, so I'll have long sleeves with me (the S/N clinic is kept cold) but I'll have to keep that in mind if I go in on a different day. - Heather
I learned that about the sleeves the hard way. those little buggers like to climb and their claws freaking hurt! and they do not like letting go. good about the kitten icu. i always preferred hand sanitizer to gloves, just because i hated taking them off and putting on a new pair. - Sir Shuping is just sir
also, one of the hardest parts about working with kittens, especially young ones, do not let yourself get close to them. god forbid, but if something happens to one of them, it can be hard to deal with. - Sir Shuping is just sir
I have no idea how I would handle that. They said last year they had very few kittens not make it, but I'm a softy and any loss is going to be hard for me. I talked to a woman who has fostered for years and she said she never calls the kittens by name because she doesn't want to get attached... I might have to do that. - Heather
that's what i did. also i hope i'm not discouraging you. it really is a lot of fun to be around them :) - Sir Shuping is just sir
I mentally responded but forgot to post. >.< Not discouraged at all, I want all the good, the bad, and the iffy to mentally prep myself because I want to do this and do well. I'm still thinking about being a vet tech, so Kitten ICU is a good test to see if I can handle the icky stuff. (I still haven't watched a spay or neuter, I'm working up to it.) The more I can anticipate about a situation, the more comfortable I feel so bring on the warnings! :) - Heather
Sign-up email went out today. Most of the times are already taken, including the slot (after my current volunteering) I really wanted. Kind of a bummer, but man if people aren't psyched to force feed kittens! lol - Heather
Heather
I still haven't worked up the nerve to watch a spay/neuter. I really want to, but every time I'm actually there my brain turns to "Blood, icky!" mode and even the used instruments squick me out.
There were a lot of large dog procedures today, and those seem to come with more blood. That didn't really help... - Heather
Why do you want to watch something that squicks you out? Are you planning to become a vet? Otherwise, I'd just skip it because I think it's always a bit hard watching medical procedures... - Spidra Webster
I want to get vet tech certification, it would open a lot of doors. I keep trying to write my reasoning, but every time I start thinking maybe I should just be a dog trainer... - Heather

"After feeding the hungry in a Daytona Beach park every weekend for more than a year, it’s just as easy to imagine Chico and Debbie Jimenez given a ticker-tape parade as what they actually got: a slew of citations and a permanent ban from the park." - Steven Perez from Bookmarklet
"Chico and Debbie Jimenez, a husband and wife team, aren’t handing out food in the Florida heat every Wednesday because of a court order or for a paycheck. They do it because they believe helping the poor is their religious duty. The pair run a Christian outreach group, Spreading the Word Without Saying a Word Ministry, that gives food to the needy every week, pointing to Jesus’ words... more... - Steven Perez
"However, Daytona Beach is one of a handful of cities that enacted ordinances barring individuals from serving food in public.

Advise please! I'm applying to Job Lot (maybe a couple steps up from a dollar store?) online. I'm going to upload my resume. Do I include a cover letter?
I don't have experience applying to a retail job online. But if I were to guess, I'd say that a cover letter can't hurt although I would also guess it's not required for an online application. - Spidra Webster
Yeah, I figure they don't expect one. But if I include one, I want it to be good enough not to hurt me. - Heather
Don't worry about it - Eric - Back to the Grill
Finally decided to include one because I wanted to apply my office experience to retail. Now I'm putting in my availability, which is technically "Any Time" with the exception of Wed a.m. I HAVE NO LIFE! >.< - Heather
