How can a woman succeed at both?Beto Entitlement BullshitThe Dames discuss a recent article in the Boston Globe titled “Woman’s Prayer”.

Governor, Justin Fairfax, with multiple accusations against him. He’s calling for due process because he believes all of the “encounters” were consensual.

New research shows having daughters makes men and women more Republican and having sisters makes men more conservative, sparking one crazy conversation.
