WAM! is super excited to offer this private tour of the “Beyond Bollywood” exhibit at the smithsoniannatural history museum.
The exhibit will teach one lucky winner and their guest about the history and contemporary experiences of Indian Americans as they have grown to be one of the more diverse and well-recognised communities in the US.
Best of all, the tour will be guided by the curator of the exhibit! A truly unique experience.
Girls are told to be skinny but not too skinny and to wear makeup but not so much that guys can tell and to dress in revealing clothes but not too revealing or else you’re a slut and a hundred other contradictory standards so I think guys can deal with being made fun of for wearing fedoras
I have a question regarding the Aeslin mice... How do they regard pizza? Has anyone introduced them to pizza? Or are the Prices too wary of the potential results of introducing them to a giant disc of bubbling cheese and bread?
The Aeslin mice LOVE pizza. They believe it is proof that they found the right species to worship. They just don’t like how long it takes to arrive. Thirty minutes or less doesn’t mean much, to a mouse.
Aeschylus: Achilles goes on top. Plato: No; definitely Patroclus. Xenophon: They were just friends. Plato: Shut up, Xenophon. Aeschines: It’s practically canon. Aristarchus: I know it looks canon, but Homer didn’t write that - someone added it later. Shakespeare: It’s canon.

Here is why Torrid’s rebranding has put them on my shitlist.
This, right here, is the reason I’m looking for new employment. Because the things my store manager has told me are being backed up by corporate. Because I’ve been told shorts I was wearing to work shouldn’t be sold in all the sizes Torrid sells and I couldn’t wear them any more. Because I’ve been told that fat visibility is offensive to plus size women and gives them a bad name. Granted, these are things my store manager has told me, and they are her personal opinions. But I know she would be backed up by corporate if I said anything. I’m tired of being told what I should look like, especially by a company where I once felt comfortable being myself. As my other manager and I were saying yesterday, Torrid’s shrunk the size of the mannequins from a 16 to a 12. I have yet to meet a person from corporate who was actually plus size, and I think that’s the problem. I don’t feel like Torrid and I are on the same level anymore.
THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT RESPONSE MY ARTICLE HAS GOTTEN.

This is really important.
I’m definitely going to go spend the $60 I was planning on dropping on the one dress I really liked on Torrid’s website somewhere else. Somewhere more friendly to actual fat people, with actual fat models and actual fat mannequins. Fuck their bullshit.
Welp, good thing I haven’t touched their shit in years.
I feel lied to and trapped in my marriage. (If I had known this, I would not have married her.) She knows I know. She dismissed it by saying the past doesn’t matter, but what she fails to recognize is that it matters tome. I can’t help but wonder if she has lied to me about something this important, what else will she lie to me about?
I love her and want to stay with her, but I feel betrayed and, frankly, embarrassed by her now. What do I do? — CONFOUNDED IN THE SOUTH
People lie when they feel threatened, and quite frankly *I* feel threatened by your judginess and slut-shaming, so I can’t blame your wife for not telling you about things you’d use against her. Either get over yourself, or let her go find someone who isn’t threatened by the fact that there’s nothing wrong with having sex.
DEAR ABBY: I read the obituaries in our local newspaper every day to see if someone I know has died. But when I don’t see any familiar name, I feel let down and disappointed. Is that weird? — STILL ALIVE IN SAN DIEGO
