OB-GYN Destroys Ivanka Trump For Talking About Post-Partum Depression On Dr. Oz

Ivanka Trump was on theDr. Ozshow talking about her postpartum depression as the Trump administration actively seeks to eliminate reproductive and mental health coverage for millions of women.

An OB-GYN called attention to this conflict of interest on Twitter and everyone agrees with her.

OB/GYN, Veronica Ades really pinned Ivanka on this stunt of hers. She explained why Ivanka talking about this particular issue is so wrong right now.

So many people were happy to see this conflict of interests aired on Twitter.

The doctor had some things to say about Ivanka’s intentions as well.

People were hoping for anyone but Ivanka to make this issue aware to the public because Ivanka won’t stand up for it, she will just whine about it apparently.

We get the message loud and clear Ivanka, you don’t genuinely care to fight for the cause.

This will make it clear to the American people how much they are being played by this administration.

Pro-Trump Student Tries To Get Classmate Expelled—And It Backfired In The Best Possible Way

We hold “Dreamers” to higher standards than most American citizens.

Regardless of how you feel about undocumented immigrants or the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA), it takes a special kind of hate to cheer for the deportation of people who came to the U.S. as children and have known no other country. In exchange for protected status, DACA participants, or “Dreamers,” voluntarily identify themselves as undocumented, promise to commit no crimes, and actively contribute to society via scholarship, military service or entrepreneurship.

With President Trump threatening to rescind the protected status of 800,000 young Americans, a lot of people are terrified — for good reason. A Transylvania University student, Taylor Ragg, targeted fellow student and “Dreamer” Paola Garcia on social media. Ragg, the kind of Trump supporter who probably sleeps in his Chinese-made Make America Great Again hat, publicly harassed Paola, saying he was going to “send her back.”

Ragg posted this screenshot (since deleted) in a Facebook group called “10th Crusade Enthusiasts”:

A wave of harassment and threats followed. Garcia said she received messages like, “I can’t wait to get your f*****g c**t a** gone,” and, “You and your n****r boyfriend need to leave.” One person sent a picture of himself filling out a Homeland Security tip sheet.

In response, Garcia gave a voice and a face to the real human toll of newly-emboldened white nationalists:

Ragg has deleted his Facebook account, probably a wise move since he became a poster child for racist bullying once the story made national news. University officials were not happy with the harassment or the negative attention, and they allegedly expelled Ragg. Ironically, the school can’t legally share details of their actions due to privacy concerns. 

This brief message from the school will have to do:

Will other bullies, racists, and white nationalists get the message?

Melania Trump Wore A $1,380 Shirt To Garden And Twitter Is Not Pleased

Melania Trump apparently wore a $ 1,380 shirt to dig up vegetables in the White House garden today, which, okay. I understand that she’s rich, like all first ladies, and it’s totally normal for rich people to wear expensive things. My amazement is with the shirt that cost that much.

The Balmain tartan shirt was “inspired by David Bowie, George Michael and Prince” and has “a rebellious ’80s attitude,” according to Net-A-Porter, even though, in my humble opinion, the blouse looks undistinguishable from several shirts I bought from Uniqlo a few years ago.

The reaction to Melania’s blouse mostly seems to be how is it possible for any shirt to cost that much?

Melania’s shirt, which is apparently dry clean only, was neatly paired with skinny jeans, converse, and cute red gardening gloves. 

Anyway, she looks as happy and comfortable touching dirt as you’d imagine. 

Happy first day of fall, everybody.

Rick And Morty's Co-Creator Demands Fans Stop Harassing Female Writers

Rick and Morty is a very popular animated sci-fi show currently in its third season. The previous two seasons have had an all male writing staff. This year, however, the show added four women to it’s staff and for the first time ever had an equal balance between men and women. 

For whatever reason, this upset a great number of fans. They’ve taken to harassing these women online, including posting public information about them, like their home addresses. 

Entrainment Weekly asked one of the show’s co-creators, Dan Harmon, what he thought of the controversy and the always out-spoken Dan Harmon had a lot to say

Even before the season began, Harmon talked about how having four women in the room was helpful for the show because it offered a new perspective and allowed them to write better storylines for their female characters. 

Even despite Harmon saying that he likes having women write on the show and most fans agreeing that season three has been the strongest season yet, there is still a very vocal minority who feels the need to harass these women. However, now that Harmon has brought these issues into the spotlight the rest of the fanbase is also pointing out why the trolls are wrong. 

Rick and Morty airs Sundays at 10. So watch the show, and fight the trolls.

Teacher's Trick To Make Girls Getting Their Periods In School Comfortable Goes Viral

A middle school teacher figured out an awesome way to help her students deal with getting an unexpected visit from the menstruation fairy, and wrote a post about her method on Facebook that went viral for its inspirationally easy trick.

“I have been doing this for a little bit now,” the post says. “I use my old ipsy make up bags and make “menstruation care packs” for my students who start their periods unexpectedly. In middle school this happens A LOT. I put a few pads in the bag and a couple tampons and panty liners, and I also add a few prewrapped disposable wipes. The students know that they can come ask, and they get a really pretty bag with their needed supplies inside. It’s discreet and more fun that being handed a giant pad. I make sure to tell them to take as much as they may need for the whole day. I make a point to ask if they need more to take home.”

The post was shared on Facebook over 10,000 times, and has inspired some teachers and parents to follow suit. Like this adorable grandpa: “Me be male, and not need such items, however, I do have a daughter (and 2 granddaughters) that have seen those days. I had to deal with the fluctuating hormones though! I will be putting together some of these “care” packages, and giving them to teachers in my area!” (He’s not sure what an Ipsy bag is, though—y’all, it’s a cheap makeup bag that comes every month as part of Ipsy, a makeup subscription box).

It’s a great reminder that young girls getting their periods doesn’t have to be a big dramatic thing or a source of embarrassment—it can be a normalized part of their day, as long as they’re set up for that.

After all, getting your period sucks enough as it is without worrying that you don’t have a pad or tampon available.

Donald Trump Jr. Just Gave Up His Secret Service Protection, And People Have Questions

Donald Trump Jr. no longer wants Secret Service protection, sources confirmed on Monday. What hasn’t been confirmed is why.

The Secret Service would not confirm or deny the request by Trump Jr. A spokesperson merely said: 

“To ensure the safety and security of our protectees and their families we will not confirm who is currently receiving Secret Service protection.”

Jonathan Wackrow, a former member of President Barack Obama’s detail, expressed his concern at the decision:

“In today’s global risk environment, waiving this detail poses great danger to him and to his family. What he is becoming potentially is a target of opportunity. People who want to lash out at the president are going to seek that path of least resistance. This decision is negligent.” 

So, then, why did Don Jr. opt out of Secret Service protection?

Some pointed to the fact that both he and Kellyanne Conway announced they’d give up USSS protection on the same day… 

The same day it was revealed that Paul Manafort had been wiretapped no less…

Fox News speculated Don Jr.’s decision was about saving taxpayer money…

But Twitter wasn’t buying it…

While secret service protection for adult children of a president is automatically provided, they are legally allowed to turn down that protection, as Ron Reagan did during his father’s second term.

Guy Learns The Hard Way Why You Should Never Body Shame A Woman On Twitter

Leyton Mokgerepi probably thought he was creating a relatable meme when he tweeted this:

What ended up happening, however, was the complete opposite. People immediately ostracized him online for posting a fat joke at another woman’s expense. A woman, who, actually looks pretty darn good in her photo, if you ask me. And most importantly, of course, is that women don’t have to meet any one standard of beauty, and don’t exist just for other people to find them attractive.

Something that other Twitter users were quick to point out as well.

And as it turns out, because the internet is a place full of cats and karma, and in this case, boatloads of karma, the woman in the photo Leyton tried shaming came out, on the record, that she in fact doesn’t like him.

He tried to save face after her post by calling her, “Girlfriend Goals.”

But it was clear for all to see it was a feeble attempt, so Twitter reminded him of how badly he was dragged.

Her tweet even caught the attention of some celebs.

At the end of it all, @Thickleeyonce was floored by the positive response people had for her after Leyton’s initial attempt to shame her.

So the next time you try to body shame someone online, remember: you might just get dragged.

Photo Of People Guarding Empty Lawn For Pro-Trump Rally Takes Internet By Storm

Saturday’s “Mother of All Rallies” turned out to be anything but.

The D.C. rally, which was expected to draw thousands of Trump supporters to the national mall, only managed to attract a few hundred attendees.

Even a neighboring rally of Insane Clown Posse fans managed to garner a larger crowd:

A photo of dozens of guards stationed along the perimeter of the mostly-empty pro-Trump rally quickly spread on Twitter:

People agreed that maybe the rally…over-estimated their security needs…

In the end, it was not a great day to be a Trump supporter…

Student Snaps A Viral Photo Of Her Classmate With A Racist Pep Rally Sign

In a Facebook post that was shared over 3,000 times, a Hispanic teen shared an image of several of her classmates at a pep rally, one holding up a sign that read, “Put the panic back in Hispanic.” Another held a Trump campaign flag. Pep rallies are sure different than they were when I was a teen, huh?

“This happened yesterday at our school pep rally,” wrote the teen, Jennifer Lopez Vazquez. “They know it’s Hispanic Month. That’s very disrespectful in so my ways. But it’s funny to think that our school thinks it ‘OKAY’ this is Honestly what white trash looks like.”

The original caption on image, which was posted on Instagram by one of the teens in the photo, read, “Put the Panic back in Hispanic. #dontgetButthurt I’m honestly not gonna care if you do anyways so!! #sorryboutit.”

She might be sorry now, though. Since the photo has gone viral, local newspapers have picked up the story, and school administrators are investigating the behavior. 

“We are aware of a photo that appears to be taken at a Robertsdale High School football pep rally Friday Sept. 15 that is circulating on social media containing political banners and unacceptable language,” said the school’s superintendent in a statement. “School administrators, as well as my office, are following up on the matter.”

Basically: yikes. Also, high school students, you’re too young and under-developed to start experimenting with edgy “comedy.” (Like, what is the joke here, exactly?) Save it for the professionals.

While you might think their story would never get told, these items are still really easy to learn about. All you have to do is ask the pawn shop employee.
