This Week in Misogyny is a Wee Bit Less Stabby Than Usual

[E] Hillary

Hillary is a giant nerd and former Mathlete. She once read large swaths of "Why Evolution is True" and a geology book aloud to her infant daughter, in the hopes of a) instilling a love of science in her from a very young age and b) boring her to sleep. After escaping the wilds of Waco, Texas and spending the next decade in NYC, she currently lives in upstate New York, where she misses being able to get decent pizza and Chinese takeout delivered to her house. She lost on Jeopardy.

After all, most state legislatures and Congress are on holiday, so they aren’t writing laws about my uterus this week. Don’t worry, there’s still plenty of other misogyny in the news! (Trigger warnings apply for just about everything.)

I just got done doing the dishes, and I realized that I have a very specific way of doing them, right down to the utensils. Plates, bowls, cups/mugs, pots and pans, large utensils, knives, spoons, forks.

Contrary to Time‘s recent “Chore Wars” article, which claimed that these days, men do an equal share of the household labor, I suspect that men may do plenty of chores, but that we ladies still do the true majority. Do I have dozens of studies to back up this blog here? No. What I do have are all the gaps … Read More

I’ve made a huge mistake.  Two years ago, I was a college student living in an off-campus house with a bunch of other students. I paid bills and split chores and did my own cooking. I was independent and looking forward to moving out of my parents’ house forever.  I had the skills needed to be on my own; all … Read More

I mentioned in a prior post about my disdain for cooking and, subsequently, domestic household duties. I have tried to instill some basic household organization by trying to maintain basic cleanliness and order, but when you have a kid, that’s pretty much impossible. Between the toys, the papers, and the stuff they collect, it’s a never-ending battle you probably can’t … Read More

It’s totally manageable because it’s the shortest month! I will call it Fitness February! Endorphins! Weeeeee!!!”   Then I jumped around a little because I … Read More

I am an unapologetic fan of cats.   I’m a fan of most domesticated critters no matter if they’re dogs, rabbits, turtles, birds or some sort of elongated rodents.   At present, I share my house with three cats.   Three cats that create what I think might be an unusually large amount of waste product by converting the money I spend on … Read More
