I understand that human beings make mistakes. I know my outrage is nothing new, and Sasha Pasulka summed up a lot of folks’ feelings perfectly on HelloGiggles.
BUT– I am sickened by the way The Today Show is touting their big “get” this morning. Ann Curry just spoke with an 8-year-old girl whose mother brought her to the plaza like it was the cutest thing ever. This kid is EIGHT— and the women in her life today, both her mother and someone she sees on TV– are all telling her its okay to idolize someone who beat up his girlfriend.
I’m glad that Chris Rock made his opinion known on the Today appearance yesterday. What’s gross is the way the hosts are all laughing. I don’t get it. What’s funny?
Here is a photo of Ann Curry at a 2009 luncheon to help end domestic violence. Al Roker also attended.
New piece up on the HuffPost today. Big thanks to Leah Bloom at The Family Institute at Northwestern University for talking with me.
Thanks for all of you who’ve come to check out the site today. It truly means the world to me.
Zooey Deschanel et al.’s site HelloGiggles is awesome for two reasons.
1) For starters, Time just called it one of the best Twitter feeds of 2012.
2) Today they’re featuring a post by me!
