Kacy Catanzaro is the first woman to complete the Ninja Warrior finals course and she looks fucking spectacular doing it.

It cuts off at the end, but apparently when this aired, she said, “I couldn’t have done it without you” to her trainer and boyfriend and the bae replies “Yes, you could have, but I’m glad to be able to share it with you.” SWOON

➜ A Different Path to Fighting Addiction - NYTimes.com

The C.M.C. psychologists are blunt about the reasons many teenagers and young adults use drugs: When it comes to decreasing anxiety and relieving depression, substances tend to work for the short term. “Kids aren’t crazy for using them,” Dr. Wilkens said. “They have an effect that is reinforcing in some way. If you understand that, you can strategically work to support and reinforce other healthy, competing behaviors.”

The stricken measure would have made Missouri just the third state nationally to require a three-day waiting period for abortions, along with South Dakota and Utah. Utah’s law includes an exception for rape and incest victims, and people younger than 14. [Missouri Governor Jay] Nixon had allowed prior Missouri abortion restrictions to take effect, but drew a line with the longer waiting period.. “This extreme and disrespectful measure would unnecessarily prolong the suffering of rape and incest victims and jeopardize the health and wellbeing of women,” Nixon said in a written statement.

And the legislature might have the majority to override the veto. In addition to extreme and disrespectful, Nixon uses the other great adjectives paternalistic, callous, horrific, insensitive, punitive, unreasonable, heartbreaking, insulting, and harmful.

Missouri has had a 24 hour waiting period since 2006. In his full statement, Nixon begins by detailing that law and has some great shady air quotes on the “medically accurate information” that must be provided by a doctor or (my air quotes) “qualified professional.”

“Reyes was having more trouble, if only because there were more Elmos to compete with. She made a point of taking her mask off after every photo. ‘That way, when they’re about to pay, they see that they’re dealing with an actual person,’ she said. At least half the time, people came up to her, took a photo, and then walked away without paying, ignoring Reyes as she protested.”

"Despite occasional tensions in the room, after two-and-a-half hours of discussion, everyone said they were grateful to be heard. They said part of their stress has been feeling like nobody outside their community cares about events in Iraq. They said just getting their voices out there made them feel better."

…Feminism is an attempt to change thousands of years of patriarchy, silencing, subjugation, erasure and containment of women. The fact that in less than half a century we’ve so radically transformed the social landscape is amazing. It’s one of the things that I’ve been trying to articulate in my mostly hopeful work. When I was born a little over half a century ago there was no “sexual violence,” “marital rape,” “domestic violence,” “sexual harassment,” “sexual discrimination.” None of those expressions existed and none of these things were treated as legal categories.

Writer and historian Jacqui Shine joined the Council of Feminist Thought to talk about how the prison realities that men and women face are nothing like the entertainment we create about the justice system. Yes, they talked about the hit Netflix show, Orange is the New Black. Take a listen!
