Hell Yeah: Laverne Cox Covers TIME Magazine

Hell Yeah: Laverne Cox Covers TIME Magazine

The amazing Laverne Cox, transgender advocate and “Orange Is The New Black” actress, is on the cover of the new issue of TIME representing their cover story on transgender rights. Flawless. The interview inside is thankfully an interesting, thoughtful dialogue (take notes, Piers Morgan and Katie Couric!) on Cox’s journey and the transgender rights movement as a whole. Check it out!

What Do We Think Of TIME‘s Hillary Cover?

hillary time main image

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has not yet said one way or the other whether she intends to run again for president in 2016. But that hasn’t stopped the chattering classes from dissecting every single item related to a “Hillary ’16″ run ad nauseum. The latest iteration is the TIME magazine cover this week: a coverline reading “Can Anyone Stop Hillary?” over a photo-illustration of a huge, high-heeled woman in a pantsuit stepping past a miniature man who jumps out of the way.

TIME Declares That Gay Marriage Has Already Won

In the court of public opinion, as evidenced by the sheer number of people of who changed their Facebook profile photo to the equals sign this week, sure. But I’m holding off on doing my victory dance until marriage equality is on the books nationwide. Still, I love these two covers. Beautiful.

Here it is. The latest in the “mommy wars.”

Because everything is a war these days, it seems. Yesterday, we were talking about the “war on obesity.” I even heard that Obama declared “war on marriage.” So “war” means “having a different opinion.” Or possibly “wanting equal rights.” In a moment, it might mean, “Hey, what you lookin’ at? You got a problem?”

But I want to talk about the so-called “mommy wars.” The cycle of articles and news reports and TV interviews and books that argue for the one good way to raise kids, and explain why every other idea is not only terrible, but it will definitely destroy your children’s future.

The mommy wars keep going, and going, and then they’re still going, because they are at their heart about two things that almost everyone cares about intensely: What it means to be a woman, and what is good for children. Keep reading »

Whoa. Hi there, TIME magazine. You went there, didn’t you?

I’m as pro-breastfeeding-in-public as one can be, but this cover photo the intentional provocation of this cover annoys me.  The 26-year-old mother Jamie Lynne Grumet is model-hot and that’s no accident; nor is it an accident that her child she is breastfeeding is three-years-old, an age which some may argue is “too old” to be nursing at their mama’s breast. I make no judgments about this mother’s attachment parenting or breastfeeding. But I wonder, will the visceral reaction to this provocative cover  — which I would place bets on being covered up at newsstands, a la Cosmopolitan titties —  do more harm to the parenting tactics she believes in than it will do good?

Florida: The Pedophile Teacher State?

It seems like I keep seeing more and more news about teacher/student affairs…especially ones involving female teachers and their young male students. As a former high school teacher, this whole scenario never gets less despicable and disgusting to me. I know first hand how close you can become with your students and how much testosterone teenage boys have. It’s outrageous. Were there a few awkward moments when 17-year-old boys hit me on at school dances? Yes. But seriously, when you are a teacher, you are entrusted with a serious duty—the safety and well being of your students. Every fiber of a non-psycho teacher’s being knows that crossing sexual boundaries is the weirdest, wrongest possible scenario. But it’s still happening. Especially in the state of Florida. Huh?
