that disposable plastic drinking straws are one of the most common items found on beach clean ups? Choose to reuse this year or refuse plastic straws altogether.

That whole situation is tricky. I still wonder if it IS true but she felt bullied/attacked so recanted. The sad thing is I can believe it happened, but for her sake I hope it didn't. Racial and religious tensions in Canada sure get scary.

I have been making an active choice to use less plastic but it's still so hard it's in/on everything :( Changing eating habits has helped- eating in more. But even at the grocery store so much is over packaged! Being someone with food restrictions makes it hard too (illness)

I wish we could come up with a better solution in for our plastic pollution problem. We use to recycle film plastic and plastic bags, and package it and sell it. Now we aren't, so it's going right into the ground! Bag bans are a start, but what else can be done?

lol stop infantilising women? lol stop making excuses for gross men and victim blaming. I wonder how different your life would be if you stopped talking and actually HEARD what people are telling you instead of constantly strawmanning or deflecting.

The Aziz Ansari story is a good litmus test for who sees sexual misconduct as a strictly legal question and who is concerned about improving the overall culture surrounding sex and dating. It's also many times more relevant to the average person's experience than, say, Weinstein.

actually no, when you question why she'd bother going to his house after rushing through dinner, you're implying it's her fault it happened. When in reality, guys gotta start listening and stop being dbags

I understand why victims who were silent are now speaking up when they see celebs wearing pins. A famous person who threatened me and exploited many women is also using those hashtags and it's infuriating seeing the hypocrite.

We discussed this on a previous episode. Some guys get aggressive when you do not express interest. It can be a scary situation to find yourself in bc you reject a guys advances....that ego sometimes can be vicious
