Re: Hello!

I think it's really important to have a safe space without trolls/people who just want to fight without actually discussing the issues. And sometimes I don't know who to ask about these issues in real life, so it's good to have an online forum to discuss these things on. I love this forum but I'm n...

Re: Bilingual Toddler

I think raising bilingual people is cool though, and supposedly does so much for the brain. These days it seems like 90% of the kids I hear about are in French immersion. Usually it's for reasons like class size though. I was never in French immersion but based on my experience in non-immersive cla...

Re: When do you seek medical attention?

I'm fairly good at the regular checkups but I have to be extremely sick to go otherwise. Not because of money (Canada) but mostly because of the inconvenience combined with not wanting to be a bother. Mind you my dentist died a few years back and I still haven't replaced him. So maybe I'm not that g...

Re: Are you related to any famous people?

No, no one I know of. I've met a couple of vaguely famous people because they were related to people I knew though. A two hit wonder minor Canadian rock star was randomly at a friend's wedding, turns out he was my friend's cousin. In high school I was a fan but when I made the mistake of telling my ...

Re: Bilingual Toddler

This is really interesting. When we eventually have kids I'd like to raise them bilingual (English and Bengali) but I'm not sure how feasible that's going to be since my husband isn't super at Bengali and I'm terrible. Most family gatherings on his side are 90% in Bengali though so we'll see. I'd li...

Re: Feminism outside the West

I have a couple of concerns with this conversation. A: the assumption that western feminists aren't concerned about human rights violations outside of the west and that we're doing nothing to spread awareness. This is absolutely not true, feminists are very concerned about rights violations in these...

Re: Quicktakes

My coworker says "k bye!" on the phone in a breathy tone which reminds me strongly of the episode of Gilmore girls where Lorelei imitates Rory on the phone (while talking to an alumni) and pretends to be an airhead. I have no idea why this bugs me so much.

Re: What do you like on your hot dog?

Potato sticks like hard chip-like hickory stick things? Hehe yup. I wasn't familiar with the Canadian version, so I had to google it, but yes. I find the crunch oddly satisfying. I have no idea how this came to be, but it's a thing in Puerto Rico. :D Gah. Now I want one of these. http://oi66.tinypi...

Potato sticks like hard chip-like hickory stick things? Or more like fries? I'm intrigued.

Re: Gender and racial biases in professor's newsvideo

First, this video was hilarious. The woman diving in like a bat out of hell, the excessively happy toddler, the baby rolling in like a boss. All comedy gold. Second, I'm guilty of this. I'm in a mixed race marriage and I regularly get mildly annoyed with assumptions that I'm not with my husband. (I ...

Re: Why are men so ready to complain...

The only way to stop men from being so ready to whine and complain about everything is to take away their privilege. Show them that their privilege doesn't count. Don't let them use it. Stand up to them. And most importantly, teach the next generation of men that they should be helping those who ha...

Maybe you'll get a song by metric if you're lucky. (Is this Canada specific? How known is metric outside Canada?) I live in the US, and Metric is my favorite band!

Re: Lack of women in music lists

I think of all time lists definitely would make this worse. A new list written by critics of the latest great albums would be slightly better I think. But it's definitely a problem. I'm mostly a rock fan who lately has been gravitating towards female voices and that can be tricky. Not to mention rac...
