@laura__palmer of course the wage gap is real. Who's arguing otherwise?
@anonymous 'and we are the only culture that experiences SIDS' - Well, that's just wrong. 34.7 out of every 100,000 live births in Asia die from SIDS according to the CDC.

@gypsy He didn't want to meet on their terms, they didn't want to meet on their terms. But you only call him names.
@laura__palmer What do you want him to do? Wave his magic wand and make it all better? He's done something, not an awful lot but it's a start.
'The narrative. It’s always about the male. He’s sorry… he wanted it.' - The narrative SHOULD always be about the male. You've done nothing wrong, it should be all about what they have done and what should happen to them.
@rush Looks like it was in the script, she knew it was going to happen.
@gypsy you do get the irony of that don't you?
