I love PLL, which is actually considered rather progressive itself in how it deals with Emily's storyline (at least by AfterEllen, which covers it weekly!) - no shame. I strongly suggest checking out the weekly recaps by Heather Hogan on AfterEllen - they're hilarious and sometimes rather touching.

News like this make me second guess leaving Connecticut. I hate how expensive life is here for those of us who are poor, and I hate how cold it is in winter, but damn do I love [most of] our politics. This makes me proud to be from CT. » 7/17/14 12:26am 7/17/14 12:26am

Can someone explain what happens in a surrogate pregnancy if one or both parents were to back out of a custody agreement (although in this case, since Sally is the biological father I imagine that's not an option for him)?

Many of the older films are legitimately good films, and my boyfriend (who loves Disney and Disney songs) and I both… » 6/05/14 3:44pm 6/05/14 3:44pm

The prankster was arrested, because he created a situation in which it was reasonable for his girlfriend to call the police. » 4/01/14 8:54pm 4/01/14 8:54pm

I always thought it would be beneficial for colleges to offer free daycare to students and those who need financial assistance. The students could use it as college credit towards childhood education, development, or psychology (or simply for volunteering experience or work study) and the community gets help with… » 3/28/14 7:22pm 3/28/14 7:22pm
