Religious zealots are also protesting the DOMA review because they believe gay marriage and gay parents will ruin America’s children, despite the fact that there are plenty of straight people out there — murderers, cult leaders, narcissists — who probably shouldn’t have been allowed to commingle.  

In Defense of Lobsters

This happens to me like clockwork around the start of summer, when the weekend air is pregnant with the fumes of grills and charred hamburgers. You don’t really want it, I tell myself; sometimes I’ll even linger in front of the meat displays at Findlay Market, a stomach-twister on command: no, no, no.

Many parents attest that when your child is born, some instincts just kick in. In nature, this is seen all the time. Females are generally the primary caregivers to their offspring, but there are plenty of species whose fathers don’t just hit it and quit it.   

Real Pants Are the Worst

 This morning I woke up and I had a choice: put on clothes that made me look like an adult going to work at a job that wasn’t inside of a gym, or to not. I chose “not.”

 This is, literally, some awesome, exclusive, breaking news: We, as humans, have words in our lexicon that have lost their meanings and/or garnered brand new, completely different meanings.   

Head Tingles: Less Creepy Than They Sound

Those, the Internet has taught us, are some of our “triggers” — for me, right alongside The Joy of Painting with Bob Ross, head massages and a whole Narnia of other untouched, weirdly humdrum happenings.

“When somebody’s 15 or 16 years old, what do they want to be? They want to be older, and they want to be cool like the girl in college, and that’s part of the magic of what we do at PINK.”

On April 15, Cincinnatians focused their attention on a nearly 400-year-old city 800 miles from us because, in the grand scheme of things, that’s really not so far away.
