Well, or with only medical exemptions. There are people who can't be vaccinated because their immune systems are compromised - children who are getting chemotherapy, some people with HIV. They're the ones who need the protection the most, because they're relying on herd immunity to be safe. » 1/30/15 4:44pm Yesterday 4:44pm

3. Apparently we're all also that lacking in imagination. I concocted a boyfriend once upon a time ago to serve as some insulation against managers who thought the employees were their dating pool. All I had to do was make up a name and a job and occasionally mention we were going out for dinner. No one wants to read… » 1/30/15 1:48pm Yesterday 1:48pm

I think there are cases where it's a sane arrangement. I'd say that it's crucial that both parties be on board with the choice (which rules out the Slate situation), that it's important the couple talk about how to handle things in the event of a layoff or a breakup, and that the non-working partner should be talking… » 1/29/15 7:03pm Thursday 7:03pm

99% of Americans do at least one of those things. If Huckabee can't even bear to hear about how people around him live, how on earth does he think he understands them well enough to govern them? Even most clergy members I know - and basically all of the ones who seem to do some good for their congregations - are able… » 1/29/15 2:06pm Thursday 2:06pm

Kris and Robert weren't married when he died. They divorced and Kris married Bruce Jenner and Robert married two other women. I suspect that Robert's death was by far the most traumatic thing that happened to that group of kids, but having to adjust to a couple of different remarriages of parents seems like it's at… » 1/29/15 4:45am Thursday 4:45am

To my knowledge, when cis men want to enter a women's bathroom to victimize women, they just find a women's bathroom that no one's watching and enter it. There's almost no reason to bother with trying to pose as a trans woman. It's happened, but it's extraordinarily rare. » 1/29/15 12:00am Thursday 12:00am
