They really do. I mean, I'm a collard man, and I'll happily eat kale. I've even enjoyed mustard greens in a pinch. Turnips are just grody.

Unicorn Otherkin

For some reason Unicorn Kin are few and far between. There are two theories on this, one is that those that identify with unicorns have not come to terms with it yet and the other reason is that they simply don’t exist in this life yet for one reason or another. Whatever the reason, they are a minority in the Otherkin community and tend to gather together when they can find one another; there are concerns and a commonality that only other Unicorns can address.
One theory as to why we come in so many different color combinations, from white to blue to black to any color in between is that they are our natural colors that we can see and remember. Humans, at least most of them, cannot see the wavelength that is required to see our colors, hence the legends that unicorns are white; those that saw color may have been rare humans that are sensitive to different wavelengths, but that is conjecture.
Unicorn Otherkin, like other Otherkin, come in many shapes, sizes, creeds and colors. And as with many others it is hard to pin down any one trait besides the fact that we all have one horn and are vaguely equine in form. Some have smooth horns while others have spiral. Some have cloven hooves and beards while others have solid hooves and no beards. Some are horse-like, others are more like goats or gazelles. And the colors are too many to mention, the combinations too numerous. Again, there are theories that there are subspecies of unicorn depending on area, as well as a theory that some are not even from this planet originally; coming from a different realm or planet is a common theme in many Otherkin communities, but is by far not the majority rule.
The horn myths cause a lot of discussion in Unicorn Otherkin; were they magic, could they do what the myths said? Unfortunately not much can be concluded from discussion since each Unicorn has their own ideas on how their own horn was used and their own powers; some of the myths may be true for some while untrue for others. It is a purely personal thing with Unicorn Otherkin. Food is another thing that is fodder for talk. Being human this time around, many eat an omnivorous diet but there are a few that are vegetarian or vegan; it all depends on the person.
Unicorn Otherkin are a unique subculture of the Otherkin community to be sure.

Turnips can be awesome. A neepie and meat pasty = drool.gif and turnips as part of a roasted root veggie medley is also pretty damn good.

Family law truly is a different animal isn't it?

Ben is definitely a troll though.

Yeah, it is one area where (from what very little I know about them) the MRA) types really have a point.

I only have my own experience to go on, but as far as I can tell, women win in divorce court because (a) they are the ones that stay in the house; (b) they are the ones that show up to hearings with a lawyer, where the men tend to not show up or show up alone in shitty looking khakis and generally act like idiots; or (c) women are less sentimental than men about this stuff. The last one is surprising but more often than not the one going for the throat in a divorce is a woman, and it's usually the man who softens up, doesn't want to hurt anyone, and backs down. I would note that in the cases I've seen where the man had all of these characteristics and the woman didn't, the man usually got his way. Believe me, if a man wants to abuse the Court system and play games with his custody he can do it and make his ex's life a living hell.

I will also say that in 90% of the cases I have seen, the mother was unquestionably the better of the two parents to take care of the kids.

Lots of truth here. I will also add going into the court hearing with the attitude "they're all out to get me" is a dead loser. Lawyer's #1 job is to tell the client to shut the fuck up and not make things worse for him/herself.

This is especially true in family court, because the legal standards are all so squishy that winning and losing so often comes down to whether or not the judge likes you.

I notice that when men hire me for divorces, it's so often too late. They've already gone to a hearing, made an ass of themselves, and gotten fucked. Or they missed a hearing because they didn't want to think about it, and I have to dig them out of that hole.

It brings the lulz.

Discussions about racism should be all-inclusive and open to people of all skin colors. However, to put it simply, sometimes White people lack the experience or education that can provide a rudimentary foundation from which a productive conversation can be built. This is not necessarily the fault of the individual, but pervasive myths and misinformation have dominated mainstream racial discourse and often times, the important issues are never highlighted. For that reason, The Frisky has decided to publish this handy list that has some basic rules and information to better prepare anyone for a worthwhile discussion about racism.

1. It is uncomfortable to talk about racism. It is more uncomfortable to live it.

2. “Colorblindness” is a cop-out. The statements “but I don’t see color” or “I never care about color” do not help to build a case against systemic racism. Try being the only White person in an environment. You will notice color then.

#1 is undoubtedly true for many hence not a myth nor misinformation.
#2 is a bit more on target (and actually aimed at liberals) but given the number of white folk that intermarry with other races a very material number have been the only white person around a in-law family gatherings. Something for the writer to think about there.

Then there's this whopper:

“Whites” were originally Anglo-Saxon Protestants (WASPs).

Uh, no.
