This is the best thing on the internet today.
“This pepper tastes like babies.”
“To me, the chicken inside is a fluffy marshmallow.”
I love this so much.
In 2009, a man was charged with destroying property for bleeding on cops’ uniforms as they allegedly beat him. Now one of those officers is on the City Council.
Woman Says Beverly Hills Store Broke The Law After Asking Her To Breastfeed In Private - CBS Los Angeles
A local mother has accused the retailer Anthropologie of breaking the law, when she says a manager did not allow her to breastfeed her baby on sales floor of the store.
This happened to an ex-coworker of mine — AFTER she dropped $700 in the store.
Anthro’s corporate HQ is handling it terribly. (Surprise!)
First off: no apology to Ingrid.
Second: an official statement that claims their aim is to ensure that “all women — all mothers — be comfortable” in their stores. (Which seems, still, to submit to the popular notion that breastfeeding is “icky,” and also employs an incredibly strange construction that places mothers in a clarifying position, as if non-mother women are slightly less important to them? Usually you’d say “all mothers — all women" to show your broad support. Not narrow it, as if you’re backtracking.)
Third: supporters who take to social media to express their dissatisfaction are snidely told to “Kindly read the official statement.” If you’re going to go to the trouble of responding to individuals, you damn well better make sure it is an individualized response. Saying, “Helen, read the statement,” is equivalent to saying “Helen, pipe down, we’ve said all we’re going to say on the matter and if you’re still upset it’s your problem.”
