  1. Amanda,

    That Goldie Blocks commercial kind of reminded me of those “this is your brain on drugs” commercials.

    At first I expected her to angrily smash the egg.

  2. Re: the second article, don’t mind me and my overwhelming dysphoria.. I’ll just be sobbing in the corner for a bit until they do this for transwomen.

  3. I’m gonna use my psychic power to predict the comment on that Brazil article:

    1. If only that were so, then I could laugh before I cry. But being the Atlantic (and lacking the heavy moderation of a Tanehisi Coates article) the comments there are full of LiberTurkey’s having conniptions about how those women are enslaving themselves to the government by accepting welfare checks.

  4. I was going to rant about placebos for kids-that if your kid has been raised to believe a pill makes things better, you’ve done it wrong. But I am sure that I begged my kids to take whatever medication they needed by saying exactly that…
    Still, I hate the candy medicine idea. A lot.

  5. “Placebo pills made for kids – What do you think of this? From Sarah.”
    Giving placebos is unethical.
