Myths, Amnesia, and Tiny Mistakes

1.
The Myth of Co-Parenting
Motherwell | Hope Edelman

How can women escape being the dominant parent? Did we take or accept this role unknowingly or was it always thrust upon us and we didn’t know what else to do but do it? We do. We endure.

2.
A Case of Reverse Amnesia
The Washington Post | James Hohmann

I was kind of wavering on this issue at first.  Yes, Sessions’ lied (or perhaps innocently omitted) information during his confirmation hearing and that alone was worth him stepping aside and saying he would recuse himself from the Russian interference investigation.  (And it’s never a good sign when I actually agree with Lindsay Graham. Sigh.) However, I did wonder if the press was getting all huffy over nothing.  But then, I read this article and begin to doubt the whole thing all over again.  WTF Trump.  And sessions. And everyone.

So, sharing this as a global FYI. It’s probably a good reminder to review the instructions of any medicine you take regularly.  This article pointed out that I too have been making mistakes. It’s unsettling to know that such tiny mistakes may be critical mistakes…

Scientists Need to Stop “Othering” the General Public
ExtraNewsFeed | Jessica Pelland

The importance of building trust between scientists and non-scientists and a reminder that scientists are part of the “General Public.”

5.
She’s 54, white, rural and a lifelong Republican. Why is she protesting Donald Trump?
The Washington Post | Terrence McCoy

 

Why has she come? She sat quietly toward the front of the bus, unsure, but hopeful, that this march, this trip to Washington, might provide an answer.

It’s an oldie but if you didn’t catch it the first time around, it is worth a read.  Poetic even.  It captures this sense of…disruption that I haven’t seen portrayed any other piece about the Women’s March in Washington.
