Plus there was plenty of talk of how so many normally conservative/Republican women were put off by Trump and him becoming the face of the GOP, and...well...

If confirmation of a SCOTUS Justice took 60 votes instead of 51, would that be a good thing or a terrrrrrrible thing?

Guy on the Illinois board said he was as worried about his son's life being ruined by a false allegation as he was his daughter being raped.

Oh brother...

In his statement to babe.net in January, Ansari made a point of affirming the #MeToo movement as “necessary and long overdue.” One might have hoped that, nearly a year later, he could find a way to reckon with one of the movement’s messiest lessons: that even men who wish to serve as allies of women can, intentionally or not, hurt them in private. Perhaps doing so might help Ansari to regain the trust of the women who feel that he has lost theirs. Instead, like other men who have reemerged in recent months, he seems to have channeled his experience into a diffuse bitterness. An early riff in the show centered on a pizza chain that Ansari said had come under fire for arranging pepperoni slices in the shape of a swastika. He described rumors that the image of the toppings had been digitally altered, then admitted that he had made the whole story up. Hearing this, the crowd erupted in laughter at its own gullibility. “You people that are clapping,” Ansari shouted. “You’re the horsefeathering problem.”

Hanson said the #HimToo politics in his mother’s post surprised him, given that he and his brother had considered her progressive while growing up.

^^^ She started watching Fox News when they left the nest?

i recognize that i without fail always side against viral social media things but this whole deal smells like a setup from this dude and his brother to get a bunch of social media followers.

I can relate to having a parent that I thought was progressive growing up, and is anything but now.

I always knew my mom tended to vote Republican. But I didn’t know until Trump got elected that she is a horsefeathering lunatic.

My mom did the unexpected in that she's swerved WAY (relatively) Left in the last few years (even before Trump, though that really kicked it into gear), and I would have never expected that of the super-church-y Reaganite who raised me.

my mom is the exact opposite, hated Reagan and very liberal in the 1980's and now only watches Fox. She blamed Harry Reid for all "nuclear options" this past weekend. Thinks Kavenaugh should be forgiven for high school.

I try to avoid my mom sometimes because the last time we hung out she out of the blue said "oh my god when I was 10 somebody touched my hand on the playground" and walked away rolling her eyes. the group was talking about the Iowa/Wisconsin football game at the time

My parents are 72 and 69 and are the most liberal they’ve ever been (and have a lot to say about all the conservatives in their 55+ community)

Yea my mom has shifted left, I think beginning with being pretty horrified by some of the things her friends had to say about Obama. My girlfriend's mother has Fox News on 24/7, but she's from Morton so I don't expect much.
