    It's probably super weird that I have Blix's third grade school picture in my wallet, but I think it's so cute that he and my boys look so much alike at that age specifically.

    Family pics at work is the only thing to get you through a work day sometimes.

    Looks a lot like mine. I have pictures everywhere of my kiddos. In 16 years, no one has really ever asked me where my kids are while I'm at work.

    You should add, "Just like the good Lord intended." Just to mess with them some more. Stuff like this makes my head implode and makes me all snarky and rude.

    Yeah, several of my co-workers have pics of their kids all over their desks and I have not heard one person ever ask them where their kids are. That's so odd to me that women get asked that.

    Well you'll all love this exchange. I would post the video but can't seem to do that anymore. You can watch at the link, and then make sure you get home to your kids - where you belong.

    Fox Guest Leaves Female Commentator Visibly Stunned During Feminism Debate: ‘Look, You’re Miserable’
    May. 14, 2015 11:51pm Jason Howerton

    Gavin McInnes, the co-founder of Vice Media who left the company in 2008, left fellow Fox News panelist Tamara Holder visibly stunned when he argued that women earn less in America because they “choose to” and asserted than modern feminism is making women “miserable.”

    “The big picture here is, women do earn less in America because they choose to,” McInnes said. “They would rather go to their daughter’s piano recital than stay all night at work, working on a proposal, so they end up earning less.”

    Still, he continued: “They’re less ambitious, and I think this is sort of God’s way, this is nature’s way of saying women should be at home with the kids — they’re happier there.”

    McInnes then recommended that Holder read a book called “Why Men Earn More,” which he said explains how women choose to put family over work.

    “Having a choice doesn’t mean that you are less ambitious. And your comments are absolutely deplorable,” Holder replied.

    “If you were a real feminist, you would support housewives and see them as the heroes and women who work wasting their time,” McInnes shot back.

    When Holder questioned McInnes’ claim that women don’t “go the extra mile” for work, she got a response that left her with a shocked expression on her face.

    “You’re making a mistake!” he said. “You would be much happier at home with a husband and children.”

    All host Sean Hannity could say was, “Oh boy.”

    McInnes then added: “Look, you’re miserable. You would be so much happier with kids around you tonight. … Feminism has made women miserable. Women were much happier when housewives were glorified.”

    PINING away for me, duh. There is nothing else they could possibly be doing.
    haha, how about "fending for themselves in the streets. Probably scrounging in the neighbors' garbage for food right now."

    It's not good to hold that shit in.

    I hope that guy gets poisoned by his happy, glorified housewife.
