Adele Has The Right To Do Whatever She Wants To With Her Own Body

Adele Has The Right To Do Whatever She Wants To With Her Own Body

I believe in bodily autonomy for women. What they want to do with their bodies is up to them, and they should have the freedom to follow their own paths. That informs my opinions on their health decisions, reproductive rights, and also more superficial topics. For example, Adele losing weight. The singer has been getting bashed by people online for going on a healthy weight loss routine and getting in shape. The people bashing her are saying that she should’ve kept the weight on because she was seen as a role model for people who carry a little more weight. But the thing... Read More

Oh, For Christ’s Sake, Just Let People Have Their McRibs And Be Happy In This Crap Show Year

Oh, For Christ's Sake, Just Let People Have Their McRibs And Be Happy In This Crap Show Year

I was scrolling through my news feed on Facebook today, as I am wont to do when I want to incrementally lose faith in humanity, and I stopped briefly on a posting by someone trying to make themselves look far more hip and cool than they actually are. I know, I know, hard to pin that one down when it comes to social media! You’ll never guess who I’m talking about when you’ve got 80 million people to choose from there… Anyway, the person was making a comment about a certain fast food item that some people profoundly enjoy. They post about it. They revel in its return. They write with glee... Read More

Davenport's Mockingbird Brings The Laughs With New Comedy Series, Funny Bird

The debut features Funny Bird’s co-creator and host Dana Moss-Peterson (dubbed Dipshit Dana) along with with Quad City stand-up aficionados Chris Starman, Pubali Kundu and Colin Mattox. “The art of comedy seems a silly and simple endeavor… But it’s a high wire act and often there is no safety net,” Moss-Peterson said. “You tap dance through the inferno, hoping to make it through to the other side and as a comedian you are always chasing the next laugh, languishing against... Read More

Behind The Fluff: The Tawdry Tales Of Festival Of Trees’ Teddy Bear Teas

Behind The Fluff: The Tawdry Tales Of Festival Of Trees' Teddy Bear Teas

Entertainment is a tricky thing. One person’s wholesome fare is another person’s demon-possessed trash. From time to time, I’ll get emails from irate people who are disappointed that I’ve recommended some bit of entertainment they find to be offensive. One of them messaged me about it. Another called me, taking me to task for “leading children down the path of evil.” How she knew I’d been a tour guide at Disneyland is beyond me. But nonetheless, this lady wasn’t pleased. “You shouldn’t be telling parents to let their children go to demonic concerts…you should be warning them... Read More
