    aw wendy didnt put mine up (ok, fine, fine it was about science, it had nothing to do with what we talk about on this website…) haha

    ill just tell you all, because i think its the coolest thing ever. french scientists have identified all of the bacterial properties of breastmilk- there are over 700 different ones! and hopefully, once they figure out what they are all there for, they can use that information to develop better formulas!

    super cool, right? or im just a science lover. whatever.

      That is super cool! Maybe they’ll develop something awesome and people will stop mommy-shaming. I have no plans on breast-feeding whatsoever, and I’m not looking forward to all the judgment that comes with it.

    Did anybody else think the “10 Things You Should Never Say To A Woman In Her 20s” was a little too dramatic? Nobody ever asks me if I’m scared to turn a certain age in my 20s or assumes I’m obsessed with Mindy Kaling. And I’m in my 20s AND I’m Indian! AND I kind of am obsessed with her! Am I just not popular enough to be quizzed like that?

      Nah, I thought it was over-the-top as well. NOTHING on that list has ever been said to me, in any way, shape, or form. I feel like it was just an attempt to hit every media topic in one piece?

        Fabelle, exactly how I felt. It just didn’t feel relatable at all.

      I don’t think anyone has said those things to me either. I’m 31…. But my 20s weren’t that long ago!

    I read the story about how male jurors are more likely to find fat women guilty. Doesn’t surprise me.
