In our efforts to raise the status of girls, minorities, and other marginalized groups, we may not have realized that we were lowering the status of the boys.
Where do I begin? I loved this movie so much I can’t decide where to start. When I start to think of what I loved the most, then other elements come rushing to my mind and I can’t quite decide. So, I will simply begin, or give you a place to begin: 3D. If you go see this movie, I […]
Beauty and the Beast is coming out today! Today! Okay, well, only to select theatres today, which does not include mine, unfortunately, but just knowing it’s playing nearby is enough to warm my heart. I am so excited for this movie, can you tell?

I just saw a post on Facebook where someone is making a new page, “Dads Winning at Fatherhood,” (or something like that, it’s probably best that I don’t know the exact wording in case they decide to attack me for hating their wonderful page idea.) and it angers me.
