This Week in Misogyny

Oh, dearies, it was another week of fuckery in the world.

Takedown: Broken Marriages are Meant to be Fixed

Ooh, this week’s takedown is a perfect combination of bullshit nostalgia and judgmental shaming, wrapped in a saccharine sweet packaging. The kind of awful that you feel bad pointing out that it is awful, because shucks, the crapdate poster just wants everybody to love everybody else.

Indifference in Post-Divorce Parenting

I recently read the article “Why I’m Glad My Ex Stopped Paying Child Support“ and was intrigued to read that someone else shares my opinion on the child support conundrum. I have been harbouring the impression that I am a bit warped because after too many years on this road I don’t always agree with […]
