Why Men Are So Obsessed with Sex. ~ Steve Bearman

Have you ever encountered a baby whose gender is unknown to you? Not knowing can feel profoundly uncomfortable. We barely realize how great the differences are in how we treat male and female people, and in what we expect of them. These differences are by no means subtle, but they are so much the air we breathe that we can’t even see them. Difference, it’s because there isn’t one! Nonetheless, from the moment of our birth, if not earlier, we are treated as gendered beings. Isolating Boys All babies are considered okay to smooch and squeeze and hold close, female or male, but when they get old enough, boys stop being held and cuddled and stroked. This isolation is reinforced by early sexist conditioning. Instead, boys are encouraged to develop relationships with other boys that are primarily competitive: playing sports, jockeying for higher rank in social hierarchies such as teams, clubs, and later on, gangs and fraternities.

You guys. Tile grout paint = amazing. - The Frugal Girl

I’ve got some seriously funky grout in my house, even though the tile job is only a few years old, and I’ve tried cleaning it with various things like baking soda, vinegar, and spray cleaners, and nothing really got it looking too fabulous. Anyway, I’d heard of grout paint before, but I thought you had to be super careful not to get it on the tile, and that scared me off from using it. (I am waaay not precise enough for that.) After reading the Live, Love, DIY post, though, I realized that this job requires about 93% less precision than I originally thought, and so Mr. FG ran out to Home Depot the next day to buy some grout paint. It’s made by the same company that made our grout, and it comes in all the colors that grout is available in.

I was most excited to use it in the kids’ bathroom, which has white tile and nearly white grout. Ahem. I am so very pleased at the difference. Yay!
