YOU GUYS. You know there’s nothing I love more than blind items, and Jennifer Lawrence has decided to provide some penance for her transgressions by giving us a whole bunch. (Lainey Gossip)
I’ve decided that Colin Firth is Love Actually’s Ted Mosby and that Drake is the entertainment industry’s Ted Mosby. HE JUST WANTS TO BE LOVED. Now he’s at it with Jennifer Lopez, allegedly. (Dlisted)
These women sharing their stories of body positivity at a size 22 and up is beautiful. (Revelist)

In Neil Gaiman’s Fortunately, the Milk… it is Dad’s job to make sure the kids have milk, which leads to an adventure. "It’s a story of adventure, danger, space aliens, time travel, vampires, angry South American gods, pirates and the amazing Professor Steg." Malin enjoyed this light adventure, especially the illustrations by Chris Riddell. What was your most adventurous trip to the store like? (Cannonball Read 8)
For what it’s worth, Lena Dunham has apologized for her comments on abortion. I…struggle. Lena says and does moronic things. But at least in terms of attempted perception, she seems like she gets it—far more so than Amy Schumer or Jennifer Lawrence or other women who say shit like this and clearly have no understanding of what they’ve done and refuse to apologize. Not that this makes things better. I don’t know. I STRUGGLE.
My latest podcast episode was meant to tell a multifaceted story about reproductive choice in America, to explain the many reasons women do or don't choose to have children and what bodily autonomy really means. I'm so proud of the medley of voices in the episode. I truly hope a distasteful joke on my part won't diminish the amazing work of all the women who participated. My words were spoken from a sort of "delusional girl" persona I often inhabit, a girl who careens between wisdom and ignorance (that's what my TV show is too) and it didn't translate. That's my fault. I would never, ever intentionally trivialize the emotional and physical challenges of terminating a pregnancy. My only goal is to increase awareness and decrease stigma. I take reproductive choice in America more seriously than I take literally anything else, and therefore own full responsibility for any words I speak that don't convey this truth clearly. I know plenty of people will never like a thing that leaves my lips, mea culpas or no, but this apology is for the women who have placed their trust in me. You mean everything to me. My life is and always will be devoted to reproductive justice and freedom. You know how in some households you curse and have to put money in a jar? Well in mine, if you mess up your pro-choice messaging you have to give a sizable donation to abortion funds (https://abortionfunds.org/need-abortion) in New York, Texas and Ohio 💰I look forward to fighting with you all for the next four years and beyond.
