While booty reigns supreme for most, there are some who prefer the curves up top just as much as the ones on the bottom. Unique, an active and rising Instagram thirst trap expert, has two ingredients that sit in front of her that will most certainly catch the eye.

Unique doesn’t have a lot of information about herself online but what we were able to uncover that she resides in Atlanta and works as a bartender for a club for pole athletes, you catch our drift.

While Unique mostly shows off the “girls” in an array of daring, plunging tops, she’s doing ok in the rear department too.

Snap Spectacles: Are They the Face Camera We’ve Been Waiting For?

You have to give Snap credit for giving hardware another try. Its first attempt, the face-camera called Spectacles, fell short of spectacular. But they’re back with a new version.

The new model is more expensive ($ 150) but it’s water-resistant, comes in new colors, and has enhanced imaging capabilities.

What People Wish They Knew About Divorce after Decades Together

When we plan our wedding, when we stand on the alter and say “I do,” and perhaps for many years after, we can’t imagine our life without our chosen partner. While some people only have a short time together before they divorce, there are the couples who have decades together before they decide that divorce is the only option.

This may be after numerous attempts at couple’s therapy, many years of a strained relationship, or even comes as a complete blindside to one of the partners. While this process may be exceptionally confusing and painful, there are some facts that many people wish they knew while going through the process and in the time after the divorce. These are the things that people wish they knew before, or while going through the process, that would have made the experience easier than it was. These tidbits would have made many realize that things were not as dire and permanent as they may have felt.

What are some of these things? You may not be able to live in the same place that you have lived for years, and you may need to adjust your standard of living. This may sound awful, but it does not have to be. When we think back at what we were able to live on, and the contentment we experienced with much less than we have now, we are able to realize that the adjustment may not be as bad as we imagine.

This is actually the opportunity for an exciting new start for you. Who wants to roam around that big house anyway? The kids are grown and have homes of their own, it is too much space, and far too much upkeep. Get a cute place, in a great area, that is simple to take care of. Did the two of you have a relationship where one spouse worked and one spouse helped raise the kids and take care of the house? Now is your time to shine and do all those things that you dreamed of doing. Volunteer, take some classes, work part-time, your options are endless and exhilarating.

Do you fear that you are going to spend the rest of your life alone, and never find love again? Think again! Unfortunately, at least 50 percent of marriages end in divorce. That leaves a lot of options and lonely people looking to meet a new match. While the idea of dating may be nerve wracking at first, it can be thrilling if you give it a chance. Are there great qualities about you that your partner always took for granted?

Perhaps there is someone out there looking for someone with those exact qualities. Maybe there is someone out there who treats you in a way that you never knew was possible. Of course you need to take the time to heal and be ready for a new romance or dating, but once you are, the possibilities are endless. This is your chance to date and do all those things you never got a chance to do in your previous relationship. Your ex hated to dance? Take some ballroom dancing lessons with your new potential suitor. Did your ex prefer to stay at home, now is your chance to see the world with a willing and excited partner.

The bottom line is that life does not end just because your relationship did. Things could not have been ideal if they ended in divorce, and there were likely numerous things that did not make you happy. While it may take some time, healing, and getting to know who you are as the individual you are now, this truly can be a fresh start and a reinvention of self.

You now have the chance to explore all the things you always wanted to do, but were not supported in doing. You have a chance to explore, learn, and put your unique mark on the world. When you are ready, you have a chance to meet someone who appreciates you for the unique person you are, and who has goals and interests in line with yours. Life is far from over, in fact some would argue it can just begin. Do not drop anchor, do not allow yourself to feel that things are hopeless when you divorce after decades, because there are many years and many adventures ahead if you are open to them.

Eight Siblings Who Survived Notorious Child Abuse Case Describe The Hell They Endured For Decades

It’s called one of the most notorious child abuse cases in California history. Mansa Musa Muhummed is serving seven consecutive life sentences after beating, torturing and starving his 13 children and three “wives” for decades. Now, all of the children are grown, and eight of them come together for the first time to share their history of unimaginable horror at the hands of their polygamist father who lived with three “wives.”

In the video above, they recall living in the hell they endured for decades.

“Our living conditions were like a concentration camp. We were on complete lockdown. The doors were locked, the windows were locked. I wasn’t even allowed to go to school.” – Michael

“He would lock us in the basement for days at a time. He would beat us.” – Delmarcus

“I remember a time my dad took a boat paddle and just cracked me straight across the head. Blood was everywhere. He got a needle and thread and stitched my head back up.” – Crystal

“I was raped by my father on a daily basis for 12 years.” – Likesha

They also recall being forced to eat their own feces and vomit.

Watch Tuesday’s episode of Dr. Phil, as eight siblings tell their story for the first time in an exclusive interview. But why do they say they partly blame one of Muhummed’s “spiritual wives,” who is now a domestic violence advocate, for being partly responsible for their abuse? Watch what happens when they come face to face for the first time since they were rescued.

Dr. Phil – The Huffington Post

What I Told My Kids When They Asked Why Dad Left

It’s a question no divorced parent wants to hear after a messy separation: “Why did dad (or mom) leave?”

What are you suppose to say in response to a question that heavy? A lite, kid-friendly version of the truth? That what’s happening is a grownup issue but you both still love them very much? 

Below, HuffPost Divorce bloggers and readers share the responses they gave their kids when faced with that heartbreaking question. 

1. I gave them a simple, age-appropriate response.  

“My children were very young. One was just an infant and the other was 4 years old. We sat him down and said, ‘Daddy has decided that he wants to live alone so you’ll have two houses now. And we love you and your sister very much so that will never change.'” — Dina S. 

2. I told them it was a grownup matter.

“I said, ‘Our relationship and the reason for our divorce is between Daddy and I. We both love you very much.’ Period. Saying that was the best advice I ever got from a counselor.” — Carolyn S.   

3. I told my daughter a version of the truth. 

“My daughter was a baby. He left me for another woman who he is married to now. My daughter is 8 now and I tell her the partial truth. I couldn’t get around it because she is a smart cookie. I didn’t lie but I reassured her of how much she is loved by me, her Dad and his wife and I told her that I want her to love them both. It took me a long time to get to this place but I’m glad I did.” — Ginen M.  

4. I reminded my child of the love we still share as a family. 

“I said, ‘Your Dad and I love you very much. We weren’t a great married couple but we parted as friends and will always work together to give you everything you need.'” – Honorée C.

5. I told my son the truth.

“Our son was 22. I told him the truth: His Dad had been cheating and had left me for the other woman.” — Rebecca C.  

6. I told them it was a mutual decision.

“My ex-husband blindsided all of us — me and the boys. He left without warning one night saying he didn’t love me after he’d already planned a three week business trip, with no opportunity for the family to talk. I held down the fort and although angry and hurt, I came to terms with divorce. When he returned, we told our sons it was a mutual decision, even though it was not. In the end, it’s what’s best. We said there would be no more fighting, that the divorce was not about them but about us as grown ups. They would have a happy mom and a happy Dad and to do that we needed to live apart. I have never bad-mouthed him. But they know he left and treated me poorly. They have asked if he doesn’t love me anymore. I simply say that people change sometimes in marriages, but no matter what we both love them. That’s the best I can do right now: love them and take care of them.” — Jenny K. 

7. I told them Daddy and Mommy were going in different directions in life.

“My children were very young. I told them that their Dad and I wanted different things. He wanted to live his life differently than me.” — Sarah P. 

8. I suggested they ask their Dad what happened.  

“I was lucky enough to be in counseling with my ex to learn how to co-parent. He explained to our triplet boys that what he had done was something a married man should never do and that was why we were getting divorced. When the boys ask me what Daddy did, I tell that that is something you need to discuss with your Dad. My motto is ‘better not bitter.'” — Janice S.

Queer Shame and How Liberal Communities Harm the Children They Embrace

In the past I’ve described my coming out process as The Five Stages of Grief — denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance. Sometimes listeners chuckle when they hear the analogy; it is kind of humorous to me now, too. I’m a self-assured recent college graduate with a supportive family, from a liberal, suburban town outside ten miles outside New York City — The Five Stages of Grief? For a kid like me?

No one ever told me it was wrong to be gay. When I say liberal town, I really mean it. The townsfolk waved their gay pride flags high long before marriage equality came into the national spotlight in the early 2000s. They’re type of people who’d point out two men holding hands on the street to comment on “how nice it is to see.” I mean this is a place where something like 87 percent of people voted for President Obama in the 2008 election, and they were vocal about it, too. Not only is there a Planned Parenthood one block off the main thoroughfare, but there’s an abortion clinic on the main thoroughfare, and there are rarely if ever protesters outside its doors.

The town has packed a staggering amount of diversity into its six square miles — black families, white families, gay and lesbian families, interracial families, interfaith families, low-income, affluent — anything in between. The school district buses white children from the more affluent north side into the working-class, black South End, and buses black children out. The magnet school system that warrants this enormous expense gives every kid equal chance to succeed — it’s progressive! (No matter that the cafeteria tables show students naturally splintering first by race and then again by class.)

Even with such a broad offering of interesting people at hand, my parents’ friends were almost always other straight, white couples, with few exceptions. So no matter how diverse, accepting or tolerant my family or our community was, I never saw much of anything happening in practice. It was more of a political stance than a personal philosophy.

I’ll say again — The Five Stages of Grief? For a kid like me? But my personal history belies my taste. From the time I was very young I imagined my future as a happy young bride in the arms of a tall, dark-haired, tuxedo-clad groom; the live band playing jazz and soul music at our wedding; flowers lining the aisle and the chuppah (a good Jewish girl); my hair, braided and adorned with white lace; everyone dancing with abandon. Regardless of my decidedly left-wing political beliefs — pro-equality, pro-choice, pro-education reform, pro-gun control, pro- pro- pro — I was inarguably traditional, and anything less than a traditional life was not for me. It didn’t matter that I supported the right for others to live an alternative lifestyle; I didn’t want one for myself.

Thus every woman I kissed was a knife in my husband’s back, and every girlfriend thereafter would be a nail in his coffin. As a senior in high school I entered denial and fought viciously against the pain and betrayal I brought upon myself. Even when I transferred from a conservative Jesuit university to a radical liberal arts college, I grasped desperately to the shreds of my dying heterosexuality. But I faced a major roadblock in my commitment to hate my orientation and nurture my disdain for my homoerotic desires: my parents’ immediate and effusive pride.

When I finally admitted to my relationships with women after a year and a half of evading their founded suspicions, they were thrilled. After all, if you’re judging whether your child has been properly indoctrinated with their parents’ liberal values, what better evidence is there than queerness? So there I was, a little traditionalist, paradoxically a bonafide radical and a self-loathing queer, with my parents beside me beaming.

Can you blame me for hating myself? At 18? It would be another 2 years before I reached my liberal arts college and heard the word “queer” for the first time, learned about the variety of identities that it represents. Before then, most people asked me if I was bisexual or a lesbian, my parents included, and so those seemed to me to be the only two options. But I didn’t feel I belonged in either category.

I was appalled at the idea of being called a lesbian, and even now some 5 years later I still cringe a bit at the term. I know many people will find this admission offensive, but I have what my friend calls “internalized lesbophobia.” To be identified as a lesbian in our society means one of two things: you’re a porn star at the pinnacle of the male gaze, or you’re a man-hating dyke, the antithesis of what womanhood and femininity are conceptualized to be. Hell of a choice, right?

In the first 3 years after it surfaced, my queerness evolved from my biggest secret to my deepest fear to my worst nightmare, simply because I had not found the right way to articulate it. “Queer” changed everything, not immediately, but completely.

Dominant culture offers us established formulas to understand both gay and lesbian identities. Sure, you can identify as gay or as a lesbian and go against the grain, but it takes a lot of self-confidence, assuredness and give-no-fucks attitude to buck up against the ways in which we’re socialized to understand sexuality. Before college I didn’t have any of those things. It made me deeply anxious to have either or both of my parents gently inquiring as to how I defined my sexuality.

Queerness, in comparison to gayness or lesbianism, rejects reductive attitudes. The term “queer” as a positive identifier rather than a homophobic slur rose to its cultural prevalence in the late twentieth century in response to the AIDS crisis (Queer Nation, ACT UP, etc.). To be queer was political at the outset, to be unified against the passive and homophobic government that was unfazed by the hundreds of thousands of AIDS-related deaths across the country. Ultimately though, to be queer was to resist definition, and although the AIDS crisis is now decades behind us, the rebellious nature of “queer” has persisted. Now that’s something I could try and stomach.

At 20, I had passed through my year of rage and began bargaining with some higher power because I loved her, and if I could just keep her, maybe I’d forgive myself for it. I was finishing my first year at my liberal arts college where I had been bombarded by queer intellectuals who asked me to position myself within the academic rhetoric of sexuality. Campus was a bastion of sexual fluidity, and anything less than total self-acceptance was considered archaic and anyone found guilty of defending traditional ideals would be tarred and feathered. I tried to wade through the jargon — what was a Foucault? — in search of some authentic identity, skill keen on turning myself straight.

The girl I was dating pushed me to do things like kiss and hold hands in public. Things that are untraditional warrant attention, and the last thing I wanted was anyone’s kind liberal gaze — how “great it is to see” — lauding us for existing. I conceded slowly because I loved her and as the months passed I became desensitized to my own horror to the point where, emboldened by a drink or two, I could kiss her in a bar.

When we broke up I lost the hint of complacency I had started to feel about my queerness. I slept with one man, and then another. I hated myself for how bored I felt to fuck them. I spun through my 21st birthday in a yearlong depression, flitting endlessly between people of all genders whom I hoped could spell out who I was. But the little hedonist in me answered that question. If I enjoyed kissing women, I’d kiss women. That didn’t make me a 6 on the Kinsey scale, and it also didn’t warrant a public explanation of my evolving sexuality. Over the past 5 years I’ve exhausted myself avoiding and debunking other people’s labels rather than trying to discern who and what I am. Queer is as far as I’ve gotten, but it’s not necessarily a complete picture.

I am almost 23 and this is the closest to acceptance I have ever come. I know that relative to most other queer kids, I’ve had it very easy. No one casts hellfire onto me when I say girlfriend, no one prescribes corrective treatments, people don’t even analyze what went wrong in my childhood to make me this way. I was my only true obstacle. But I would argue, despite their good intentions, that the kind liberal folk of my childhood pose a danger to the true social acceptance of queerness as much as blatant homophobia might.

My community, if privileged, is not perfect. The ways in which liberal communities perpetuate heteronormativity, while at the same time claiming to be bastions of acceptance, are dangerous. The ways in which liberal parents think about their queer children as cultural capital or political immunity are dangerous. The ways in which queer kids are told to be authentic while being taught what authenticity means are certainly dangerous.

It’s all flowers and butterflies when your parents validate your non-conforming identity, but when they use you as trump card to justify their closed-minded ideas the warm and fuzzies start to get a little more complicated. It’s the same as if someone white were to make a racist comment followed by “and I have a very good friend who’s black.” So in my comfortable liberal town, “and my kid is gay” has the potential to rear its ugly head and hurt queer kids as much as it hopes to help them.

Plenty of mothers hang rainbow flags in honor of their children and then make a point to make a positive comment about visibly queer couples. To be a spectacle, even for someone’s kind liberal gaze, still makes you a spectacle. I know that I am in an extreme place of privilege in issuing a critique of the way that liberal families and communities often commodify sexual identities, but I worry. I worry that if no one calls these very nice people on their very stinky bullshit, the behavior will become cyclical and continue to slyly degrade queerness for generations to come.

When I was in college I noticed that a lot of young women often made reference to being queer, or were averse to the label of heterosexuality, even if they found themselves exclusively attracted to men. Heterosexuality, in radical spaces, has become akin to closed-mindedness and traditionalism. It’s hip to be “open,” like “free love” transposed onto the millennial generation. My parents and their liberal community regard queerness the same way. In 20 years, when the straight girls I made out with in college have kids of their own, I don’t want them to look at a gay couple on the street and comment on how “great it is to see” in an effort to display their tolerance.

I want queerness to be completely unremarkable. It’s innocuous. Regardless of the intentions behind unsolicited remarks, they are equally harmful in featuring sexuality as a minoritizing characteristic. What I’m saying is: whether a stranger is calling me a faggot dyke and telling me I’m going to burn in hell, or they’re remarking sweetly about me and the beautiful girl I’m holding hands with, the fact that they say anything about my sexuality is the problem. At least someone who is blatantly homophobic doesn’t disavow their role in “othering” queerness.

I don’t mean to scold or scorn the millions of liberal, accepting, tolerant parents who make their queer children’s lives easier. Without them, queer shame might increase tenfold. Our Supportive Liberal Parents are an asset and I think it’s rare that any queer kid would fail to recognize that. In my critique of American ultra-liberalism I simply mean to issue one heartfelt request: I ask that liberal parents and liberal communities support their kids not only in the most visible or vocal way, but also the most thoughtful. Maybe in fifty years there won’t be queer kids or straight kids anymore, maybe there’ll just be kids — and wouldn’t that be the ultimate realization of acceptance?

6 Arguments All Couples Have Before They Divorce

No two divorces are alike — but the arguments that lead couples to divorce tend to be, experts say. 

Below, marriage therapists share six arguments couples on the verge of divorce usually get into before calling it quits — plus, their best advice for avoiding those fights. 

1.  ”You take me for granted.” 

It’s an all-too-common trajectory for married couples: Fall in love, begin your lives together, then proceed to get comfortable and take everything for granted. San Francisco-based marriage therapist Susan Pease Gadoua sees couples complain about this problem all the time. 

“It’s supposed to happen to some degree; it’s a sign that you’re comfortable enough to let your guard down,” she said. “But it can sometimes be misconstrued by your significant other as you not caring as much about him or her.”

To avoid falling into this trap, Pease Gadoua urges couples to watch the assumptions they make about each other. Don’t assume you know what your spouse is thinking or feeling. 

“One spouse may think, ‘We haven’t made love in two months so clearly you don’t love me any more’ or ‘He doesn’t respect the work that I do to keep our house and family functioning well,'” she said. “And once you start telling yourself these things (without checking them out first) you’ll begin to find evidence of how the stories are true. Check your beliefs out with your mate early on!” 

2. “What happened to our sex life?” 

Divorce-bound couples often complain about their sex lives — or lack thereof — said Marcia Naomi Berger, a psychotherapist and the author of Marriage Meetings for Lasting Love: 30 Minutes a Week to the Relationship You’ve Always Wanted.

 ”It’s oftentimes the man who feels frustrated because his wife seems to have lost interest in having sex with him,” she explained. “Women’s sexual needs are more complex: Maybe he’s not helping her get into the mood with enough foreplay or maybe he hasn’t been emotionally available and responsive to her in general.”

Of course, it could be the other way around, too, said Berger. “A wife who focuses on her husband’s faults and often criticizes him can end up with a husband who’s lost interest in sex with her.” 

The best way to get busy again is talking through your non bedroom-related problems, Berger said.  

“Couples who use their brain to understand and talk through what’s behind the symptom of sexual disinterest are the ones who learn how to remedy the situation.”  

3. “You’ve checked out of our marriage.” 

When a couple is on the brink of divorce, one or both spouses start to seriously question if the marriage has legs, said Alexandra H. Solomon, a clinical psychologist and the author of Brave, Deep, Intimate: 20 Lessons To Get You Ready For The Love Of A Lifetime.

“When spouses become emotionally and physically disengaged, they can start to question their love for each other and wonder, ‘What are we all about?’ At its worst, disengagement can make it feel like you are participating in something you no longer believe in,” Solomon said.

To rebuild your shared narrative as a couple, Solomon recommends setting some new goals together.

“Create a couple manifesto or mission statement and update it regularly — create short, medium and long-term goals for each individual and for the marriage,” she said. “And it may also be helpful to create couple rituals (daily affirmations, weekly movie night, an annual vacation).” 

4. “You use the kids against me.” 

Couples whose marriage are this close to being down the proverbial drain aren’t afraid to go for the low blows when fighting — and that includes bringing the kids into arguments, said Berger. 

“I’ve seen couples in therapy who blame and name-call in front of their children, to the point where one child got pain in his chest every time his parents fought in front of him,” Berger said “These couples are trying to turn their children into allies instead of working out their differences constructively with their spouses.”  

Regardless of whether you stay together or go your separate ways, your goal should be happy and healthy kids, so stop giving them a front row seat to your arguments, Berger advised. 

“Recognize that the best gift you can give your children is a model of a good adult relationship,” she said. “To create this kind of relationship, it can be helpful for adults to receive psychotherapy, marriage counseling and marriage education.”

5. “Are we even fighting about the same thing anymore?”

You know it’s gotten bad in a marriage when you can’t even agree on what you’re fighting about anymore. As a therapist, Solomon said she “sometimes has to wonder if the couple were even in the same room when the fight happened because the stories are so different.” 

Solomon said this miscommunication is often reflective of a deeper problem: The couple lacks the willingness or ability to collaborate and understand their different perspectives. To move beyond this, try to empathize with your partner as much as possible. 

“Lean in to your spouse’s view of the problem and actively look for pieces of his or her story that you can buy into and empathize with,” she said. 

6. “We aren’t communicating anymore.” 

We couldn’t get through a list like this without addressing the age-old couples’ fight over communication. Psychologist Nicole Martinez confirmed that this is the number one problem couples who come into her office report.

“The couple stops being transparent, starts making assumptions and starts hiding things, which ultimately leads to anger and mistrust,” she said. “When communication breaks down, and each person thinks it is beyond repair, they will often believe that divorce is the only option.”

If the couple has any desire to salvage their relationship, Martinez tells them they need to feel safe to be open and honest about their feelings.

“When you’re this close to divorce, it’s a make or break factor in the relationship,” she said.

16 Love Lessons Women Wish They Could Tell Their Younger Selves

You can’t change the mistakes you made for love in the past: There’s no way to go back and skip that first date with an ex who was bad news from the start. And there’s no way to tell the younger version of yourself to slow down and stop jumping from relationship to relationship. 

The good news is, you can learn from those mistakes. Just ask HuffPost Divorce readersBelow, our followers on Facebook reflect on the hard-won love and relationship lessons they would pass on to their twenty-something selves.

1. “Don’t settle just because you desperately want to have that ideal life with a husband and kids and home. Trust your gut. People most likely won’t change.” — Erin Rockford

2. ”Don’t look for self-validation through the eyes of others.” — Espléndida Mariposa

3. ”You set the tone of your relationship while you’re dating. If you’re always the one to sacrifice while you’re dating you’ll always be the one to sacrifice when you’re married.” — Christina Rodriguez 

4.

5.  “Never change yourself for the benefit of a man. If he loves you, he’ll love you for who and what you are.” – Wendy Chavez

6. “Enjoy your youth, travel, have friends but don’t commit to one love until you have lived some. Just finishing college is not enough living.” — Erin Rockford  

7.  “Don’t get married just because you’re sick of dating!” – Sarah Hoyle

8. “If he treats the waiter like s**t on your dates, run for the hills.”  – Lisa Thomson

9. “Don’t waste years of your life on something you know is a sinking ship. You can never get that time back.” – Cara Leigh 

 10. 

11. “If your gut says, ‘Run! Run! Run!’ then don’t think twice — hightail it out of there and don’t look back!”  – Kimberly Ann 

 12. ”Don’t be in such a big hurry to find a man and get married. Go ahead and accept your employer’s offer of free tuition so you can be a dye lab technician. Earn a decent wage, travel around, do the fun things you once dreamed of doing. If he really loves you, he will wait; if he really loves you, he will respect you as a smart and educated woman.” – M. Evelyn Wake  

13. “Don’t settle. There will be someone better that comes along. You will not be alone forever and if you are, it will be so much better than spending eternity with someone who can never love you.” –  Jillian Therese Godschild 

14.

15. ”Follow your heart and instincts, not what everyone else says is ‘right.’ Also, recognize when he’s just not that into you. (My God, I wish that book had been out back then — it would have saved me a lot of heartache!)” — Susan O’Brien

16. “Don’t be so anxious. The right one will come along. Even if it takes another 28 years and he still hasn’t shown up yet, keep the faith.” — Carla Kempert

Why Every 2016 Candidate Should Get Out While They Still Can

By now, if you’re one of the people who decided to embark on the strange and wonderful journey of becoming president, you’ve probably experienced a lot of personal highs. You’ve traveled to far-flung parts of the country and met some great people. You’ve gotten your mug on television and have been chased down by reporters. You’ve met some of our weirdest billionaires, eaten some state fair food and participated in a candidate debate. What an experience this has been! 

Well, hope you took some ‘Grams because it’s time to get out while the getting’s good.

What? You don’t understand what we’re talking about? Look, we’re going to let you in on a little secret. “President of the United States” is a terrible and thankless job that doesn’t pay well and subjects you to relentless criticism. The power’s not all it’s cracked up to be and the perks get old. Plus, any time something goes wrong in the world, you’re the first person everyone calls. 

This job sucks, and if you’re smart, you’ll let someone else do it. Besides, every single one of you has a good reason to quit the race. Maybe you’re not aware of it, but trust us, we’ve seen it. And on this week’s First To Last, we’ll tell each of you the reason it’s time for you to make your Irish goodbye.

RANK CANDIDATE
1
HILLARY CLINTON
You have more money than God, nearly as much fame — and you don’t look like you’re enjoying running for president at all. Escape.
2
JEB BUSH
Good God, man, the most exciting thing that’s happened to you so far is you won Eric Cantor’s endorsement. Take your weight loss and run with it.
3
MARCO RUBIO
You’re young, you’ve still got student loans and a fresh face that could get bruised in this Trumped-up slap-fight. Buy yourself a larger boat and sail away, sail away, sail away.
4
BERNIE SANDERS
Bernie, you’re a great guy. But some of your most dedicated Twitter followers are feeling the Bern way too much. Cool those jets.
5
DONALD TRUMP
Dude, you have lost a ton of prestige for a job you don’t even want. Why go on? Eject.
6
SCOTT WALKER
Wow, this is a lot harder than you thought it was gonna be, isn’t it? Take a powder.
7
BEN CARSON
We can’t get our heads around the fact that you used to be so good at something so hard — and now you’re doing the opposite. Stay in your lane.
8
MIKE HUCKABEE
At this point, you’re probably in a good position to up your salary at Fox. Get back to it before you blow it.
9
TED CRUZ
More than almost anyone else, Donald Trump stole your thunder. Retreat.
10
RAND PAUL
Remember a minute ago when we said almost anyone else? Recharge.
11
JOHN KASICH
Ever get the nagging sensation that this is probably as good as it’s ever going to get? Peace out.
12
CARLY FIORINA
It’s wrong you have to fight CNN to get into the debate, but what a sad thing to be fighting for. Take it on the arches.
13
LINDSEY GRAHAM
Whoa, Lindsey, you said that you were gonna beat Donald Trump’s brains out? Man, you better really mean that! If not, you’ve got to hit the bricks.
14
CHRIS CHRISTIE
And how are you gonna let Lindsey Graham become the anti-Trump alpha dog? Son, hit the showers.
15
MARTIN O’MALLEY
You can stay because we need someone to end lists with.

Why Do They Hate Science So Much?

I love science more than you do. I would have sex with science if it let me. Sometimes I worship science. It has earned my trust, unlike whatever absurdities other people believe in. I am a man of reason.

Sure, science has a few warts. Don’t we all? And remember, science is more of a journey toward truth than a destination. We expect corrections along the way. Those corrections are an essential part of the scientific journey to truth. 

We know the scientific method is the best method because it was invented by Sir Isaac Newton, the same man who invented calculus, when he wasn’t conjuring gold using alchemy. But he also got several things right, including inventing gravity. Imagine no gravity, right?

I love science because it makes me smarter reading about all the results and stuff. And by that I am not talking about definitely smarter. One has no way of knowing for sure when science is done unfolding its mysteries. So until the train reaches its destination of truth – and no one really knows for sure when, or if, that will happen – we have to accept some doubt along the way. That is how rational people think. Not morons. Morons are dumb.

And so it pisses me off when people start saying that the knowledge I have been receiving at the altar of science since I was a wee boy, especially in the field of psychological research, is mostly brainwashing and bullshit, only slightly more credible than a horoscope. Why do the morons hate science? Is it a moron thing?

For context, I am guessing that dumb ol’ horoscopes, being general in nature, are accurate only about 25% of the time, by luck. Science obviously beats that. By a mile. Duh.

To back up my point, check out this article showing charts and graphs. I believe statistics and whatnot are involved. And variables. I don’t have time to get into the weeds of it. The point is that I have a preconceived notion, and I pointed you to a link, so I think we are done here.

Buy my book because I love science. More than you do.

Sports News in Brief: Majority Of NFL Players Say They Wouldn’t Let Their Son Play Preseason Football

NEW YORK—As concerns about the health risks involved for youth players continue to rise, a new poll revealed Thursday that a growing majority of NFL players would not allow their sons to play preseason football. “Now that we know how dangerous it really is, how could I in good conscience let my 7-year-old son go out there and play in a preseason football game?” said Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons, echoing the sentiments of many NFL players who told reporters that the potentially devastating health costs associated with participating in a full four-game preseason outweigh any reward, especially at the professional level. “The fact of the matter is that we just didn’t understand the full risks of preseason football back when I first started playing. I love this sport, but I’m not going to let my child put his long-term health on the line just to play …

Ashley Madison Sued $578M, As They Should

Ashley Madison’s failure to protect the adulterous secrets of its users has resulted in a lawsuit eclipsing more than half a billion dollars.

Reports ABC News:

Two Canadian law firms have filed a $ 578 million class-action lawsuit against the companies that run Ashley Madison after a hacker group’s data breach exposed some 39 million memberships in the adultery website earlier this week.

Charney Lawyers and Sutts, Strosberg LLP, both of Ontario, said Friday that they filed the lawsuit on behalf of Canadians who subscribed to Ashley Madison and whose personal information was disclosed to the public. The website, with its slogan “Life is short. Have an affair,” is marketed to facilitate extramarital relationships.

The lawsuit, filed Thursday in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, targets Avid Dating Life Inc. and Avid Life Media Inc., the Toronto-based companies that run AshleyMadison.com. Its class-action status “still needs to be certified by the court,” the statement says.

Ashley Madison did not immediately respond to requests for comment. It has said that the personal details exposed in the initial data leak can’t be used to prove the infidelity of their clients.

The plaintiff is Eliot Shore, an Ottawa widower. Shore said he joined the website for a short time in search of companionship after he lost his wife to breast cancer. He said he never cheated and never met up with any members of the site.

Lawyer Ted Charney told The Associated Press it is the first class-action suit filed against the companies in Canada.

Grace Jones’s 1979 Disco Baby Shower Was as Ridiculously Chic as They Come

grace jones

It’s almost impossible to imagine Grace Jones doing anything ordinary. The Jamaican-born model, muse, and performer has been fearlessly pushing boundaries, with her sound and her style, since she burst onto the scene more than three decades ago. She even managed to orchestrate a fashion moment while pregnant with her son Paulo, whose father, French photographer Jean-Paul Goude, was her longtime creative coconspirator.

Jones asked the illustrator Antonio Lopez to design maternity clothes (see one example above) and costumes for her, and performed at her own baby shower dressed as a toy soldier. Held at the Paradise Garage in 1979, and hosted by Blondie’s Debbie Harry, it was a star-studded event to celebrate her unborn “rhythm baby,” so called because he moved when he heard certain kinds of music. (Paulo grew up to be a musician, as it turns out.)

Inspired by this extraordinary fete, and in advance of Jones’s performance at the Afropunk Festival this weekend, here, a wardrobe for mini disco boys and girls to wear right now.

Sports News in Brief: Redskins Maintain They Were Legally Granted Right To Name By 1807 Treaty Of Blackwater Creek

WASHINGTON—Responding to widespread criticism from an increasing majority of Americans who find the team’s moniker offensive, Washington Redskins officials announced Wednesday that they were legally granted the right to use the name by the 1807 Treaty of Blackwater Creek. “What critics fail to understand is that the Redskins name was originally approved by Native American tribes in an effort to make peace with early settlers,” said franchise owner Daniel Snyder, explaining that the 19th-century Iroquois gave their blessing to use the Redskins logo in exchange for bolts of cloth, copper kettles, and various food supplies. “Our team’s identity is not only a source of pride for our players, coaches, and fans, but also symbolizes a promise we made over two centuries ago at Fort Elmsley. To abandon it now would simply dishonor all the distinguished Native American elders who came together at Blackwater Creek and helped forge …

Trans People Confront Myths They Hear About Themselves Head On

Transgender identity can be hard to understand. In a way, it’s supposed to be since “trans” means so many different things to different people.

In “I’m Trans, But I’m Not…” a group of transgender people confront myths about what it’s like to be transgender head on in order to dispel mainstream misconceptions about their lives. From “I’m trans but I’m not damaged” to “I’m trans but I’m not tricking men into having sex with me — I don’t need to,” their statements are honest, poignant and reveal quite a bit about the daily lives of the transgender community.

One powerful point that everyone should keep in mind?

“I’m trans, and I’m worthy of love.”

They Are Wearing: August in Paris

There are very few Parisians left in town in August — and those who stay have their favorite haunts: the boat Les Jardins du Pont Neuf; the Perchoir bar on the BHV Marais rooftop; the Rosa Bonheur “guinguette” (or tavern); the Pavillon Puebla hideout in the Parc des Buttes-Chaumont; and Ground Control, an abandoned railway station that’s been morphed into a bar, restaurant and sandy péntanque area. (The game is the latest rage among Parisian hipsters.)
Most people opted for comfort — cropped denim shorts for women; jeans and loose Bermudas with airy shirts for men — sometimes topped by a jacket or even a coat as temperatures dipped. Of course, there are those who will never give up fashion for comfort, so here and there were a quirky jacket or sweater and even a layer or two. Other seasonal musts: sunglasses, hats and péntanque sets.

Caitlyn Jenner Takes ESPYs By Storm: ‘Trans People Deserve Something Vital. They Deserve Your Respect’

In her first public appearance since announcing her decision to transition, Caitlyn Jenner mesmerized the crowd at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on Wednesday as she accepted the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the 2015 ESPY Awards.

Jenner spoke about her own personal experience so far as a transgender woman. But she also dedicated a significant percentage of her speech to a thoughtful and touching discussion of the vast number of issues facing the larger transgender community. 

“Trans people deserve something vital. They deserve your respect,” she said. “And from that respect comes a more compassionate community, a more empathetic society and a better world for all of us.”

“At this very moment there are young people coming to terms with being transgender,” she added at another moment, noting the high levels of bullying, homicide and suicide the transgender community must grapple with still today.  The trans community, she said, needs the American community’s empathy and understanding.

Jenner admitted she had never talked with another transgender person up until very recently, in what she said was a truly educational experience. “It’s been eye-opening inspiring but also frightening,” she said of her overall experience since she told ABC’s Diane Sawyer in April that she would be transitioning from male to female.

In a video about her experience preceding the speech, Jenner discussed about what she has learned about trans-related issues since then and how she decided over time she would become not just a trans woman, but a trans advocate.

I came to kind of a revelation that out of all the things I have done in my life, that maybe this is my calling,” she said. “To take my struggle, throw it out in front of the world, maybe I can bring understanding on this subject. It’s time that I do my best. This is an issue we can deal with. This is not something people have to die over.”

Maura Mandt, the ESPYs co-executive producer, told Sports Illustrated’s Richard Deitsch in the lead up to the show that Jenner’s decision to transition in such a public forum “displayed enormous courage and self-acceptance.”

“Bruce Jenner could have easily gone off into the sunset as this American hero and never have dealt with this publicly. Doing so took enormous courage,” Mandt told Deitsch. “He was one of the greatest athletes of our time. That is what the Arthur Ashe Courage Award is about, somebody from the athletic community who has done something that transcends sport.”

Jenner became a household name in 1976 when she won the men’s decathlon at the 1976 Summer Olympics. But after ESPN announced the selection of Jenner in June, the network faced large amounts of backlash from those who believed there were more deserving candidates. Bob Costas called the decision “a crass exploitation play” and criticism became so loud that ESPN issued a follow-up statement several days after the initial announcement:

 The Arthur Ashe Courage Award is meant to honor individuals whose contributions transcend sports through courageous action. Sometimes that courage is demonstrated over the course of a lifetime and sometimes it is demonstrated in a single act that shines a light on an important contemporary issue. At all times, there are many worthy candidates. This year, we are proud to honor Caitlyn Jenner embracing her identity and doing so in a public way to help move forward a constructive dialogue about progress and acceptance.

The award is given to those “possessing strength in the face of adversity, courage in the face of peril and the willingness to stand up for their beliefs no matter what the cost.”

 ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne summed up the feelings of many on Wednesday:

They Are Wearing: Heat Wave in Barcelona and Paris

As Europe was blasted by summer’s first heat wave, residents of two of its most stylish cities, Barcelona and Paris, hit the streets in pared-down style.
Temperatures topped 90 degrees in the Catalan capital as it hosted 080 Fashion Barcelona (named for the city’s zip code) at the neo-classical Olympic stadium on Montjuïc hill. Off the runway, the style message was clear: less is more. Women favored short-shorts, rompers, feminine dresses and lace and crocheted looks. Men went loose and easy in tanks and T-shirts with colorful graphics and oversize silhouettes. Statement sunglasses were hot accessories for both sexes.
Just days before the Paris Couture collections as the mercury hit 102 degrees, the city’s streets — from the 1st arrondissement near the Louvre to rue du Seine in the 6th — were buzzing as residents walked and biked while wearing tank tops and shorts, rompers and sleeveless sundresses. White, khaki and the occasional denim and black kept things neat and chic.

For Anyone Who’s Ever Been Called a Nickname They Don’t Like

This is Phillip, my wonderful husband of 12 years.

2015-07-02-1435832785-2314344-DSCN3942.JPG

He was named after his mom’s dad Phillip Gordon, who was a captain in the Army Signal Corps.

2015-07-02-1435832830-7691894-grandpagordon.jpg

“Phillip” is what you’ll see written on my husband’s birth certificate, and his family has never called him anything other than Phillip. He’s never gone by anything else in his life.

His name has two syllables in it: Phil-lip. You can clap it out if you want to.

However, the world in general is absolutely convinced that his name is “Phil.” Whenever we meet someone new, here’s how the conversation goes:

“Nice to meet you, I’m Phillip.”

“Well, gee golly, it’s great to meet you, too, Phil.”

Every. Time.

It’s like some vast Truman Show — style conspiracy, where everyone seems to be in on it except for us.

But we’ve lived in far too many places for them all to be working together against us: Minnesota, Utah, Ohio, and now here in New England.

Everywhere, he gets called “Phil.” Even the emcee at our wedding reception called him Phil (and now that I’m thinking about it, I’m wondering why we paid that guy. I mean, shouldn’t there be like a 5 percent discount for calling the groom by the wrong name?)

Now, I have nothing against the name Phil. In fact, the Phils I’ve known are hilarious, nice guys.

It’s just not Phillip’s name.

We’ve moved around a fair amount in our married life, but we plan to stay here in New England and never move again. We’re putting down roots.

Which is why I was so concerned when Phillip came home from his first day at his new job here and casually mentioned that the plaque on his office door read “Phil Evans.”

“You have to get that changed!” I cried. “Right now, before all your co-workers and your boss think you go by Phil and that becomes your name for the next 40 years you work there! It might already be too late!”

(You can see that I take this somewhat more seriously than he does.)

So off he went to Human Resources and asked for a new plaque with his full name.

The next morning, he showed up at work to find that they’d gone overboard and put this up on his door instead:

2015-07-02-1435832964-8958410-nametag.jpg

(This isn’t the real thing, by the way, just an artistic representation. Phillip’s work deals with government contracts and has some super-secret “ruin the blogosphere by not allowing photos” policy.)

Long story short, he’s not “Phil” at work anymore. The downside is, he’s now the snobby guy who has to have his educational title and middle initial listed with his full name at all times.

Oh, well. We can deal.

41 Percent Of Americans Say They Feel ‘Frisky’ After Going For A Run

For many runners, the finish line can be found in the bedroom. According to a 2015 survey by Brooks Running Company, 41 percent of U.S. respondents experience a post-run euphoria that propels them under the covers.

The survey for the third annual Brooks Run Happy Nation Report was conducted online by Wakefield Research and queried 1,000 adult runners — those 18 and over who report running at least once a week — in the U.S., Canada and Germany. Though the sample size is small, previous research has also linked running to a satisfying sexy time. A study published in the scientific journal Plos One last month found that speedy endurance runners may enjoy better sex lives and higher sex drives.

If you’d rather go shorter distances, just bring your partner along to reap the benefits. Brooks’ 2013 report showed that 66 percent of runners believe they have more sex when they run with their partners. This isn’t all that surprising, since running releases the same brain chemicals — such as endorphins and adrenaline — that love and arousal do. Experiencing this feel-good rush next your partner will make you “associate the good vibes with your partner, which makes you want him or her even more—and vice-versa,” Women’s Health reports.

But it’s not just running that’ll put you in the mood for Marvin Gaye; enjoying any type of physical activity together can trigger vibes and let the good times roll. Better yet, physical activity can boost your self-esteem, making you feel more confident when it’s time to unlace your sneaks and slip into something a little more comfortable.

To learn more about what goes on inside the mind and body of your average runner, check out the infographic from Brooks below.

7 Ways Men Say They Bounced Back From Divorce

canva

When it comes to advice on moving on post-split, men seem to get the short shrift. The reality is, divorce is just as crushing for men as it is for women. Most of us take our vows with the intention for the marriage to last. Rerouting your future when the relationship falls apart is hard regardless of whether you’re a man or woman.

To help balance things out a bit, we asked a few male divorced writers to share their best advice on rebuilding after divorce. Read their helpful advice, that’s applicable to everyone regardless of gender, below:

1. Remember: You only divorced your spouse, not your kids.
Your marriage may not have worked out but that doesn’t mean you’re any less responsible for the well-being of your kiddos. Your children need you in their lives now more than ever. Take it from Joel Schwartzberg, the author of The 40-Year-Old Version: Humoirs of a Divorced Dad.

“I know it’s tempting to think a divorce will dilute, minimize or do irreparable harm to your role as a dad and it can… if you let it,” Schwartzberg said. “But in many ways, divorce can also free you of others’ expectations and standards for parenting. It allows you to parent your way. My divorce enabled me to be a much more authentic father and my relationship with my kids couldn’t be stronger or more fulfilling.”

2. Stop asking, “What if?”
If you gave yourself permission, you could spend every waking moment analyzing what you should have done differently in your marriage — but to what end? The marriage is over. The next step is to move on. In the middle of his divorce, Al DeLuise learned a simple trick to curb all his second-guessing.

“My therapist told me to do the following: Give yourself 30 minutes each day to think about the divorce, but it has to be the same time every day,” DeLuise said. “If a divorce thought popped into my head I had to say, ‘No, not now, I’ll think about that later.’ If I missed my self-appointed time one day, I had to wait until the next day to think about things. I have to say, it was a very effective way to clear my mind during the day.”

3. Don’t feel guilty… unless there’s reason to be.
Divorce isn’t a dirty word. Like countless other couples, you and your ex went into your marriage with the best of intentions and it simply didn’t work out. Remind yourself that there’s no shame in splitting up, advised Schwartzberg.

“Unless you’ve personally broken your vows and betrayed your spouse and marriage, you shouldn’t feel guilty about getting a divorce,” he said. “Everyone makes mistakes and not all incompatibilities are immediately obvious. In the end, my unwarranted feelings of guilt — especially since we had three kids — made me less objective and self-protective when it came to protecting myself legally in the divorce.”

4. Don’t introduce your kids to everyone you date.
There’s a good chance you’re eager to get back out there and date — and that’s completely understandable. But try to take your time and recognize that your kids don’t need to meet every Tinder match or blind date.

“Do your kids a favor and keep them in the dark about your love life,” said divorced dad and writer Austin Blood. “If there’s one thing that raises my blood pressure, it’s watching supposedly mature adults act like emotionally stunted, lovesick teenagers while their poor kids bear witness to mom or dad’s complicated dating life. Divorce is traumatic enough for kids without them having to see their parents rushing to get their groove on with someone that’s not mom or dad.”

Blood said he tells divorced pals it’s best to wait a year before making any introductions: “And that’s a minimum of one year. Frankly, the longer, the better as far as I’m concerned.”

5. Don’t get too invested in a rebound relationship.
If you do jump into a relationship, take it slow. It’s easy to get caught up in the heady early stages of a new relationship — especially after going through a divorce — but don’t allow yourself to commit too soon, Blood said.

“Why? Because in the beginning, everyone is in love and on their best behavior — you feel like the stars and constellations are aligned,” he said. “The truth is: you don’t really get to know someone until at least a year or more into the relationship. It doesn’t matter if you’re welded at the hip for the first six months; certain things only reveal themselves with the passing of time. Just take it easy.”

6. Add some routine to your life.
Whether it’s going to the gym, or heading to the movies on what used to be date night, falling into a routine of some kind will provide some much-needed stability to your life. For DeLuise, the routine was treating himself to pizza for dinner. DeLuise said it wasn’t the healthiest but that it was a short-lived stage.

“What mattered was that it was a routine and at the time, that was all I was looking for –- something constant I could count on,” he said. “Plus, it was delicious.”

7. Learn everything you can from the experience of being married.
No one walks away from a divorce completely blameless. Whether you care to admit it or not, you made some mistakes in your marriage that ultimately led to its downfall. Take ownership of what happened and you’ll set yourself up for a stronger, healthier relationship the next time said, Schwartzberg said.

“Then after you’ve done that, ask yourself: Which needs of mine were met? Which weren’t? This will give you valuable insight in choosing your next partner,” he said. “It’s enticing to act mainly on sexual attraction once you become single again -– and there’s nothing wrong with that — but the trick is to find a woman who can provide you with something that was absent or lacking in your previous marriage.”

Taking stock of what he wanted in a future relationship led to Schwartzberg remarrying in 2008.

“For me, it was really about finding someone new who was as interested in giving and receiving affection as she was in forming a strong partnership,” he said. “I’m glad I realized that.”

Growing Number Of Americans Say They Understand What It Means To Be Transgender

Americans’ understanding of what it means to be transgender has grown since Caitlyn Jenner came out about her transition this May.

In a new HuffPost/YouGov poll, 42 percent of Americans say they have a very or extremely good understanding of what it means to be transgender, up from 31 percent just this February.

Forty-three percent say they’ve been following news about Jenner, and more than half say they’ve learned some or a great deal about transgender issues in the past year.

“We are having a larger national conversation about transgender issues, and by Caitlyn choosing to tell her story, she’s adding to that conversation,” GLAAD spokesman Nick Adams told the LA Times earlier this month. “It is allowing Americans to feel like they know someone who is transgender and hopefully bringing a greater understanding about what it means to be a transgender person.”

So far, that increased awareness doesn’t seem to have translated into changing minds on some of the issues advocates are fighting for. As in February, Americans are about evenly split on whether parents should allow their children to identify as a different gender from the one they were assigned at birth, and on whether transgender people should be allowed to use public restrooms, dressing rooms and locker rooms designated for a different gender than the one they were assigned at birth.

Still, the survey suggests that just knowing someone who is transgender makes people significantly more comfortable with both ideas.

Among Americans who knew at least one transgender person, 57 percent said transgender people should be able to use restrooms and dressing rooms for their preferred gender, and 46 percent said parents should allow their children to identify as a different gender from the one they were assigned at birth. Among those who didn’t know someone transgender, just 31 percent and 33 percent, respectively, said the same.

Another recent survey, conducted by SurveyMonkey for NBC News, found that most Americans think transgender people face prejudice today, but that 76 percent believe society will be at least somewhat more accepting 10 years from now. Sixty-six percent said Jenner’s transition would help society along that road.

The HuffPost/YouGov poll consisted of 1,000 completed interviews conducted June 3-4 among U.S. adults using a sample selected from YouGov’s opt-in online panel to match the demographics and other characteristics of the adult U.S. population.

The Huffington Post has teamed up with YouGov to conduct daily opinion polls. You can learn more about this project and take part in YouGov’s nationally representative opinion polling. Data from all HuffPost/YouGov polls can be found here. More details on the poll’s methodology are available here.

Most surveys report a margin of error that represents some, but not all, potential survey errors. YouGov’s reports include a model-based margin of error, which rests on a specific set of statistical assumptions about the selected sample, rather than the standard methodology for random probability sampling. If these assumptions are wrong, the model-based margin of error may also be inaccurate. Click here for a more detailed explanation of the model-based margin of error.

How to Tell Your Child That They Have to Spend the Summer With Your Ex

As a child psychologist, I know how hard it is to tell your child that they have to spend their summer vacation with their noncustodial parent. I have assisted with these kinds of conversations a lot over the years and it never gets any easier. Whether it is for a few weeks or a few months, this is going to be a difficult conversation to have with your child.

When the custody schedule is anything other than a 50/50 arrangement (giving one parent primary physical custody and the other parent limited visitation rights) this creates a “home base” for the child at the primary parent’s house. This can have some advantages for the child, but it also makes the other parent’s house feel strange.

It’s natural for kids to want to spend their summer break at their “home base,” especially as they get older and more involved in a social circle. In addition, kids like the familiarity of the primary parent’s rules, routine, and environment, so suggesting that they leave their comfort zone and spend a significant amount of time at a strange house is a big deal to kids.

Unfortunately, custody schedules dictated by lawyers and court systems often do not take into account what the child prefers, and they are required to follow the dictate of the pre-arranged custody arrangement. Whether or not you agree with the custody arrangement, there are several ways the primary parent can help their kids with this transition.

1. Be positive. Your attitude rubs off on your child. If you act like this will be a good experience for your child, then they just might start to think that too.

2. Be understanding but firm. If you are wishy washy, your child will get their hopes up that they might not have to go. Unless there is a good chance that the court will change the custody order or your ex will agree to let your child stay with you, it’s best that you don’t create doubt with your child. The more firm you are about the decision, the faster your child will get on board with the idea too.

3. Listen to your child’s concerns and try to turn them into a positive. It will help for your child to talk about their feelings, but don’t get tempted to turn the conversation into an opportunity to bash your ex. Try to keep your personal feelings of your ex’s role as your previous romantic partner separate from their current role as your child’s parent. Try to turn your child’s objections about the visitation into a positive way they can bond with your ex.

4. Answer all of their questions honestly. Be honest with your child about how long they will be away and if you know any details about your ex’s plans with your child (i.e. if they will be vacationing or seeing extended family members), but don’t get too honest. They don’t need to know your negative feelings about your ex’s parents or sister, for instance.

5. Prepare your child for any difficult feelings that they might have while they are away from you. Make sure they know when you will call them each day and for how long you will talk with them. Having daily contact with your child will be helpful, but don’t use the conversations to make them feel bad that they are not with you. Make sure your child brings a comfort item (stuffed animal, special pillow, etc.) with them so that they can use the comfort item to help them feel better if they get sad.

6. Encourage your child to speak to your ex if they get sad or scared. Let them know that your ex’s job is to take care of them and protect them, just like that is your job, too. You might not be 100% sure that your ex will handle every situation just like you would (for example, your ex might not rub your child’s back until they fall asleep when they get scared in the middle of the night), but your ex should be able to handle all of the important stuff. Communicate this to your child.

7. Explain the reasoning behind visiting your ex, even if you do not agree with it. Above all, the reason your child is spending time with your ex is because kids who have a warm, positive relationship with both of their parents tend to fare better overall. Your ex might not have been a great romantic partner for you, but they can still be a good partner for your child. By allowing your child the opportunity to bond with their other parent, you are doing your child a huge favor.

If you have this difficult conversation with your child early and often before they leave for your ex’s house, they should be pretty prepared. On the day your ex comes to pick up your child, be positive and brave for your child’s sake. Above all, remember that this could be a great summer visit for your child and having the opportunity to bond with their other parent could lead to a better future for your child.

The Shameful Senate Vote That Denied Gay Veterans the Benefits They Earned

On Memorial Day, Americans remembered the men and women of our armed forces who fought and sacrificed to defend our freedom. Yet just 11 days later, shamefully, the U.S. Senate voted to deprive many combat veterans of the very freedom they risked their lives to protect.

The vote was on a measure I offered to end the prohibition on veterans’ benefits for many gay and lesbian service members. Currently, if you are a gay veteran living in a state that recognizes same-sex marriage, your family is entitled to full veterans’ benefits. However, a gay veteran with the exact same status — the same service record, same injuries, same family obligations — but living in a state that does not recognize same-sex marriage will receive far less.

A majority of Senators voted yes. But 42 Republicans, none of whom even bothered to speak in opposition, voted to continue the discrimination, and my amendment was defeated. Some of those Republicans had previously voted for the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, so they retreated from their earlier stand against workplace discrimination against LGBT Americans.

My amendment was based on the Charlie Morgan Military Spouses Equal Treatment Act, which I introduced earlier this year. This bill was named for Charlie Morgan, a military veteran with more than 30 years of service in the New Hampshire and Kentucky National Guard. I first met Charlie in 2011, when she was returning from deployment in Kuwait, diagnosed for a second time with breast cancer. Concerned for the well-being of her wife Karen and their young daughter, Charlie became an outspoken critic of the Defense of Marriage Act, which at the time prohibited her spouse and child from receiving Department of Defense benefits she earned during her service.

Sadly, Charlie did not live to see the Supreme Court strike down the Defense of Marriage Act in 2013. Despite that court ruling, there are still provisions in the U.S. Code that allow state legislatures to indirectly deny federal benefits to many disabled veterans and their families solely because they are in a same-sex marriage.

In other words, many combat veterans are being denied their rights because of whom they love and where they live. In one reported case, a 50-percent-disabled combat veteran was initially approved for benefits for her wife and child but was later told by the Veterans Administration that she would not only lose a portion of her benefits but would also have future payments withheld to repay benefits already received.

The impacts of this discrimination on veterans’ families can be devastating. Monthly benefits are less. Spouses and children are not eligible for education assistance, VA medical care, and VA home loans. Families also lose survivor benefits, pension, and burial rights.

This brazen discrimination is unacceptable in today’s America. The callous attempt by 42 senators to turn our nation backward will not stand. We have arrived at a historic moment in the long struggle to secure equal rights for all Americans. Thirty-seven states have already recognized marriage equality. Many observers expect the Supreme Court, having already overturned the Defense of Marriage Act, will rule later this month that state prohibitions on same-sex marriage also violate the constitution.

So the Senate’s vote last week to allow continued discrimination against gay and lesbian veterans will not be the final word. Because of the courageous advocacy and leadership of Charlie Morgan and so many others, our nation is on the cusp of a historic expansion of civil rights. We hope for a Supreme Court ruling in favor of marriage equality, but that outcome is by no means certain. And in any case, why wait? It is time for Congress to ensure that all veterans, regardless of their sexual orientation, have equal access to the rights they risked their lives to defend.

Trans Women Discuss Sisterhood And The Violence They Experience Every Day

Sisterhood is a revolutionary act for all women.

A new documentary series called “This Is Me,” created by WifeyTV with the help of executive producer Jill Soloway, explores the issues trans and gender non-conforming people face everyday. In the most recent episode called “And My Sisters,” artist/actor Van Barnes, performance artist Miss Barbie-Q and artist/filmmaker Zackary Drucker sit down to discuss their friendships and the daily threat of violence they experience as trans women.

“Trans women are born witty, thank God. It’s part of our survival,” Barnes says at the beginning of the video. In the video, the three women sit around a table creating “prayer pumps” to memorialize a sister of theirs who was recently murdered for being trans.

“It’s a revolutionary act to be an out, visible trans person,” Drucker says, to which Barnes added: “It’s a revolutionary act just to walk down the street [as a trans person].”

With one gender non-conforming person being murdered every 48 hours around the world, the violence these women face is very much real — and it informs their behavior.

“I feel like I have to walk around with my fists up again,” Miss Barbie-Q says. She goes on to recount a time two months prior when she was assaulted by a man on the subway, simply for the way she expresses her identity.

“I have to gauge people because if they’re staring at me for too long, I think ‘Do I have to watch my back when I walk away from this person?’ Because violence can go from zero to 90 in a heartbeat,” Barnes says.

She also tells the other women about a time she was assaulted by five men on the street: “One of [the men] put his arm out and clotheslined me, right at the neck… He grabbed me, picked me up, body slammed me. Every single one of those guys took a turn body slamming me,” Barnes said. “Every time I was getting lifted into the air I thought, ‘I hope they don’t paralyze me.’ And nobody came to my rescue.”

“How many trans people are going to have to die on the street before change happens?” Miss Barbie-Q asks the other women in the video. In January and February of 2015 alone, seven trans women were murdered in the U.S.

A sentiment towards the end of the video sums up how important these women’s friendships really are: “These relationships give me a sense of stability, they give me a sense that things are possible, they give a sense of wholeness.”

Head over to WifeyTV to watch more of the “This Is Me” series.

41 Percent Of Americans Say They Feel ‘Frisky’ After Going For A Run

For many runners, the finish line can be found in the bedroom. According to a 2015 survey by Brooks Running Company, 41 percent of U.S. respondents experience a post-run euphoria that propels them under the covers.

The survey for the third annual Brooks Run Happy Nation Report was conducted online by Wakefield Research and queried 1,000 adult runners — those 18 and over who report running at least once a week — in the U.S., Canada and Germany. Though the sample size is small, previous research has also linked running to a satisfying sexy time. A study published in the scientific journal Plos One last month found that speedy endurance runners may enjoy better sex lives and higher sex drives.

If you’d rather go shorter distances, just bring your partner along to reap the benefits. Brooks’ 2013 report showed that 66 percent of runners believe they have more sex when they run with their partners. This isn’t all that surprising, since running releases the same brain chemicals — such as endorphins and adrenaline — that love and arousal do. Experiencing this feel-good rush next your partner will make you “associate the good vibes with your partner, which makes you want him or her even more—and vice-versa,” Women’s Health reports.

According to the survey, almost a third of American respondents said they preferred jogging alongside a running buddy when it came time to train. Fitness trackers came in second at 24 percent, and Fido followed closely behind at 20 percent.

Want to learn more about what goes on inside the mind of your average runner? Check out the infographic from Brooks below.

But it’s not just running that’ll put you in the mood for Marvin Gaye; enjoying any type of physical activity together can trigger vibes and let the good times roll. Better yet, physical activity can boost your self-esteem, making you feel more confident when it’s time to unlace your sneaks and slip into something a little more comfortable.
