Coming to America displayed a black comedic talent not downtrodden. It featured a man who would go on to host a late night talk show, and it featured a woman who had a family that owned a chain of successful franchises, and it showed a rich African prince. Sure it was comedy, but why does that make it less important? Movies need to show blacks not as victims but what we want to see. We should want to see the success of black people, which is why I am looking forward to Black Panther more than another here's a despicable white person doing bad shit to a black person movies.

I thought one of the interesting things was that it wasn't just about being black, it was about being women.

Not because of the children, but because of the lack of help in place for parents- no parental leave, astronimical child care costs, schools becoming more and more academic at younger and younger ages and stressing kids and parents alike etc [ Reply | More ]

The studies are based on what people say, since it's not quantifiable. Childfree couples are less likely to admit defeat. Parents are only too happy to vent. [ Reply | More ]

Do what makes you happy and try to let the rest roll off. If dh is yelling, tell him he can't talk to you that way and to come back when he has calmed down. Develop your own life so you don't have to rely on dh. You may feel lonely, but you will feel a lot stronger because you will know you don't need him, his attention or his approval. chances are, when you start doing this, he will actually get kind of jealous and look for your attention, but don't expect it because he may not. You are responsible for your own happiness. [ Reply | More ]
