Just had a taxi driver in Singapore ask me: 'How's things going back in Britain? No deal??', and then laugh uproariously for a full minute.

And with that, we've landed. I'm going to enjoy vacation with my kids. Later y'all!

Y'all can debate all you want in the comments as to whether or not this lady is an asshole but I'll say this: airlines split families apart all the time no matter how much they plan and I'm not going to be the reason why 2 young kids have to spend 6 hours unsupervised on a plane

I would also think that I would consider the possible anxiety of two small children flying away from their parent

They drank a fair amount of juice. Didn't nap once.

Every time one of Bebe's kids bumped into her, spilt on her, or started punching each other, she'd look back at their father and he'd say, "Not much I can do from here." Dad ordered a drink and did his best to enjoy the flight.

Ok. This woman is an asshole. But she also played herself. Because she had to spend the next 6.5 hours with wildly a unsupervised 5 year old and 3 year old.

So we're on a plane to Maui & a dude asks the woman in front of us if she'd switch seats with him so he could sit next to his kids. She said no. She liked her window seat.

To be clear: Caster is not trans, but a lot of the hate she is getting seems firmly rooted in the rampant transphobia in sports and our society in general.

Oh definitely. I'm fully aware that she isn't trans, but I do believe that a lot of the way she's being treated is rooted in the rampant transphobia in sports
