So did you hear about the teen Mom in Delaware? She wants to breastfed her baby for a full year. This means pumping during the day and her school says no. Sure she’s a teen Mom, but she’s trying to do the best by her son and her school is (currently) standing in her way. Two things: Delaware law says employers have to provide space for breastfeeding moms to pump and any breastfeeding mom has the right to do so anywhere they are legally allowed to be. (Like NY) Why can’t the extend the right to teens in schools? Even without the argument that teens have to be in school, it’s just the right thing to do. Sure she can go to the program for teen moms, but she’s doing well in her regular classes, why take that away from her? Let her have a chance to succeed. She wants a place to sit partway though the day so she can pump. Not traditional? Sure, difficult? Not really. And that, my friends, is today’s WTF?

I'm around the internet a lot less these days. I guess I've reached the point where I want actual human interaction with people in front of me and not via a screen if I can help it and that I wanted to experience more of the moments for me, not just to document them for others.
I still make stuff. I sometimes still blog. I'm still usually doing something ridiculous. I think I'm funny, but sometimes people don't agree. I've been reading a lot more.
or in haiku form:
used to be here more,
realized want to live, to live
not just for writing
it's nice to meet you
martha and ridiculous
tell me about you
