Just a reminder: attractive men assault and harass women too, and women who don’t necessarily fit Hollywood beauty standards get harassed and assaulted. The focus within the Weinstein coverage on his frogginess obscures the larger realities.

This excellent piece connects to what I write in GOOD BOOTY about the multi-tiered culture of exploitation that has marginalized and harmed so many women within the music industry. Despicable men have always played a central role, and benefited from it, and preserved it. But it has survived because anyone who treats it as natural feeds it. It survives through lore, through everyday practices, through the exchange of money above all.

I haven’t had food poisoning since our honeymoon in Spain, but I have it now

I haven’t had food poisoning since our honeymoon in Spain, but I have it now. Oysters, advertised as roasted but actually undercooked, at a Cambridge fancy spot, were the culprit I’m sure. I’m not in the worst state (will spare y’all details) but I wonder if anyone has had good experiences with anything over the counter that helps as we enjoy our last day here on mom-daughter vacay.

 A few years ago, when I first arrived in Hoi An, I only knew about Cua Dai Beach. The beach is far away from the center of Hoi An with a long, picturesque road, crowded with people every afternoon and always smelling the smell of grilled fish, the smell of steamed ... A year later, I came back But this time I chose An Bang as my destination. In my eyes from now until now, An Bang is still one of the most beautiful beaches and has the most peaceful feeling. Discover the beauty of Vietnam beach: http://vietnambeachholiday.net/
 
An Bang beach is closer to Cua Dai, a 10-minute taxi ride away. Still, An Bang is much more secluded than Cua Dai. Cua Dai Beach always gives us a sense of excitement and joy with the excitement of young people playing under the waves.

Today I have had to sit back and look a the future of my life

Today I have had to sit back and look a the future of my life. Sit is the operative word. My broken artificial knee is acting up and no amount of pain killers seems to be helping. My wife goes into a nursing home in a few hours. I have two eye surgeries scheduled this week. And unless Congress does something to fix the “great obamacare”. The same obamacare that has turned me down multiple times for surgery needed to repair the broken knee I have had for six years now. Well I don;t see myself climbing back in the wrestling ring.
It’s been fun. I have traveled the world. Met many fans and have been seen by millions. I have busted my butt to give the best show I could each night I stepped in that ring. Even with a broken rib or two I still sucked it up and went out there to entertain the crowds.
Today and tonight my body has been telling me it is shutting down. I was hoping I had at least one more match in me. But right now I’m not even sure I have the ability to head to my car and drive the two hours to get to the surgery center on Tuesday.
It has been fun. I have a few offers this year to do parts in movies. When the time comes, I will decide then. Talking with the doctor I’ll see n a couple days. He said I will likely need two surgeries a month for the next four or five months. I’ve had 58 surgeries already. I do not want another one. My body says no more. I’m sitting at the computer table now looking at the bottles of pain killers. Two hypodermic needles with medicine in front of me, ready to shoot me up again and again and again. Another close to fifty bottles of pills are on the shelf next to me now. Just ready for me to open and take up my next group of pills tonight.
Life is fun. And then you die. My wife is being helped by Hospice now. I live in a retirement home where residents are dying just about every week.
In 1988 I suffered a major stroke and was told I would be a vegetable and likely die with one year. I fought back and got back in the wrestling ring. I was 32. today I am 60. My wife is struggling to stay alive. I am hoping to have maybe one hour just to feel what it is like to be pain free. To not need all these pills and shots just to function as a human being. When obamacare is gone and health care is brought back to what it was back in 2005. Like when I needed a total knee replacement. When I had the surgery within a few days of being told it was humanely impossible for me to walk. Surgery was approved and scheduled within 24 hours. I’m again being told by multiple trained and certified doctors that it is humanly impossible for me to walk on my broken knee. But six years later, even with all the x-rays, MRI's, cat scans and other forms of documentation, including over ten doctors who have signed off on the operation, the surgery is denied, time and time again.
So this leads me to taking another handful of pills and a couple shots tonight. The pain is so bad that I cannot even lay down and go to sleep. I think I know what Michael Jackson was going through when he had the doctor inject that white liquid into him to help him go to sleep. The same medicine the doctors use on most patients to knock them out just prior to major surgery.
I enjoyed playing the character “The Hangman” all these years. I did a lot in the ring and someday would still love to try it again. But now, the pain of my body and the struggles trying to help my wife, in what might be, according to some at hospice, her final moments. The fight is leaving this tired old man. Thanks to all who came out and supported me and supported pro wrestling. I had a blast. I hope you did too.
Blessings to you all. And in the words of “The Hangman”. Hang In There
Now time for a couple injections of medicine and then another handful of doctor prescribed pills. We all got to die. It just hurts to watch your wife and knowing there is nothing you can do to help her other than hold her hand and try to bring comfort to her any way possible.
Besides this, if you still want to explore Asia, a Cambodia Laos itinerary will be an ideal choice for you.

Wellllll

Wellllll.... big announcement! Atlas has just given birth to one healthy baby girl! Yes- ONE! We had absolutely no idea she was even pregnant (you can imagine the surprise/terror/anxiety/panic/extreme happiness/ etc. that followed shortly after the discovery ). I've been up with her all night worried because I didn't think there was any way she could have just one, but early this morning I took her to the vet and he took an X-ray and confirmed that mom and baby are perfectly healthy and that she probably only had one due to Rogue being SO young and it being Atlas' first pregnancy. Super unexpected but also we are SUPER happy for this little fluff-ball-chunk-monster ☺️ #greatpyrenees #adventuresofatlas #purebred #fluffball

Thank you Women in Product (especially Deborah and Fidji) for having me as a panelist yesterday. I had a blast (as you can tell from the photo) and it was incredible to see over 1500 women PMs in one place.

It's very cool that the New York Times ran a big feature on Turning the Tables this week, but it's SUPER cool that my sheroes June Millington and Cris Williamson staged a conversation about "Contributing to the Canon," inspired by their inclusion in the project. These women are the point, y'all.

Oh my GODDESS! My favorite couple! I'm so happy to hear this, it lifts my spirit so much

Oh my GODDESS! My favorite couple! I'm so happy to hear this, it lifts my spirit so much. For those who don't know, Andy and Fran live in our old house in Brooklyn and have a magical daughter named Violet and I'll never forget seeing them dance together at our friends' wedding in Maine when they'd just first met and thinking, that is a love that is going to last.
