  1. Yes. We've spent about 5 years living outside of the US, and it was a great experience. You'll always be able to learn enough of the language to get by. In decent sized towns you will find other English speakers. :)
  2. “Atticus–†said Jem bleakly. He turned in the doorway. “What, son?†“How could they do it, how could they?†“I don’t know, but they did it. They’ve done it before and they did it tonight and they’ll do it again and when they do it — seems that only children weep.†— To Kill A Mockingbird, by Harper Lee

  3. I never had any intention of reading her book. But, the more that comes out about it, the more various incidents seem written for shock value rather than truth. I still think her dad's work is unattractive.
  4. I think anyone who hasn't heard of her before now isn't very up on popular culture. I've mostly seen her at awards shows and programs like The Daily Show or in interviews, but I definitely know who she is.
  5. Wow, Dunham's paintings really are extremely ugly. Yuck. Not pleasing to my aesthetic at all. And I have two prints featuring topless ladies hanging on my walls right now, so it isn't just the nudity. BUT, to be fair, it looks like the naked paintings are from his later works. His paintings before 2000 are more abstract, I don't actually see any with semi-realistic nudity until later than that. But, they are all unattractive, IMO. Me too. Agreed. Plenty of toddlers have been naked out in the yard. This isn't particularly shocking or weird to me.
  6. Thanks, I had not seen a story with that particular quote.
  7. People have added information that came directly from Lena from other articles, twitter, etc as far as I can tell (I haven't found a link or source for the masturbation one). But, my understanding of the first post I quoted here is that you are making a different assertion-that Lena is lying and that she is the one who put the pebbles there, right? Again, I don't know the actual age of the toddler in question. To someone who hasn't been a parent, a 22 month old would still be a one year old, yes? I don't find the story as written implausible. [eta: Given her open attitude about everything else, why would she lie about that?]
  8. So, you are accusing her of something other than what we are discussing here-the things she actual admitted to and freely discussed.
  9. What are you saying? That a child under two was mimicking adult behavior?
  10. I totally agree that putting these things in the book/on twitter/out there in the public eye in the manner that she has, using the language that she has, those are problematic boundary issues. And yes, maybe she needed some professional help with that sooner. She needs a handler until she gets a better grip on how people interpret such actions. But, I think she was TRYING to twist what I think IS probably within the range of normal and make it funny, but has failed spectacularly when people put all of these incidents from diverse sources (not all of them from the same book, according to my understanding?) together.
  11. I can't find the quotes about that anywhere. I don't want my search to be too specific. I did find a story that Lena's sister wrote about her that included the information that they slept in the same bed throughout their childhood. If her sister was unaware, then I am unsure how it was harmful to her? It's something that isn't in my experience as a teen, even having younger sisters and sharing a room. But, I'm sure it isn't completely outside of the range of normal.
  12. Disconcerting or *illegal* and *criminal*? There is a world of difference between those statements.
  13. Does everyone who does anything inappropriate as a small child end up with boundary issues as a teen? No, not at all, not even close.
  14. A teenager should definitely have better boundaries than that. But, this is the first time that statement has been brought into the discussion. It doesn't affect my opinion on the other issues. ETA: Again, I don't see *anyone* saying, "this is perfectly fine behavior that everyone should expect and be totally fine with." And I think pretty much *everyone* has a problem with her nonchalant attitude, with it being included in her book and the manner in which she has handled the backlash.
  15. Right. I don't think anyone is saying, "this is fine behavior that everyone should be fine with." I think people are saying that there is a difference between a small child acting inappropriately and a child acting with malice and actively molesting another child. Those are not the same thing. IMO, this is clearly a case of dressing up her sister. She was only jokingly referring to it as dressing her sister as a sex object from her ADULT perspective looking back. As an adult looking back are there things that my siblings and I did as kids without realizing what we were doing? Yes, especially because our mom watched a lot of cop shows, lol.
