So sorry I thought seeing female CEOs and women making six figures was "advancement". ETA: Now that I think of it, I think it's "sad and...
My DH just came home with a product to stop one of the cats from marking territory. It's called Comfort Zone with Feliway. Ingredients are: 10% facial pherimones 90% Ethenol and then something called "excipients to - 75 mL"... Does this sound safe? I personally think that we should just use baking soda, but my DH is the "more power, grunt grunt grunt" type.
Let me start by saying that I've been on anti-depressants before for eating disorders, and I will never take another anti-depressant again. They are great for some people, but they were awful for me (and yes, I tried several - the only one that didn't make my anxiety worse was Zoloft and that just made me numb and ruined my memory. I remember almost nothing from 20 to 22.) I'm rambling. Anyways, my mom has been on Zoloft for over ten years. She originally went on it...
-When she shrieks with joy upon finding out I had successfully switched from EPing with formula supplementation to EBF at 7 weeks because bottles and nipples "are so sterile". -When she looks like she belongs at a Grateful Dead concert -When she selectively/delay vaxes my DD on the same schedule her selectively/delayed vaxed DC were on. -She tells me to eat organic while I'm bfing. -When she pushes the homeopathic remedy first, medicine last.

That is much worse, and that is exactly what those shirts and other things are examples of. Standing up for yourself isn't being mean and sneaky, it's being assertive. Big difference. These t-shirts should say "I've been with the company for a decade now and I deserve the same raise Mr. Jones just got" not "Your...
Oh yeah... remember the thongs that Abercrombie and Fitch marketed to 4-10 year olds a few years ago? They said things like "Wink Wink" and "Eye Candy". *Shudders*

[/QUOTE]For too many years, girls were taught to be quiet and passive. And they let many bad things happen to them as a result. (I know this all too well.) I'm personally okay with girls being taught to be a bit more sassy, to have...
