In which Amazon offers unnecessary support to my vacant uterus. 

Normally the Internet is one of my favorite things, but sometimes it can be kind of an asshole.

Like when I ask Amazon to send me a book about being child-free because it’s written by a comedian I’m currently obsessed with (Jen Kirkman — ladies, go watch her Netflix special. Gentlemen, sorry, no guarantees). So I’m mostly reading it because it’s a book by a funny woman — I’d read whatever book she wrote, but this one happens to be about not having kids.

But then Amazon’s all, “Oh, hey! I see you like books about being a Barreness. HERE ARE 600 MORE books about it!”

I’m good, Amazon, really. I don’t need THAT much support. Thanks, though.

(My personal favorite was when I bought the clutter book, and Amazon was like, “Would you like us to send you a shit-ton of other books about clutter?” YOU’RE NOT HELPING, AMAZON!)

Lindy West v. Jim Norton

I actually do think you can craft funny jokes about anything if you’re smart about it. George Carlin and Louis CK are great examples. And I’m not a fan of Jim Norton, but he made some great points during their debate, as did she. But the reactions this woman is getting are not well-crafted, or funny, or intelligent — they’re disgusting.
