Re: All Dogz Worthy

I'm not a dog owner, but my brother's family has a Corgi and my sister-in-law posted a warning on Facebook today. Apparently there was some sugar-free gum on the floor which their Corgi ate. The first ingredient of the gum is Xylitol which is highly toxic to dogs. They called the Pet Poison Hotline...

Rowling is dead to me. I keep being surprised that people are surprised by her. Her books were steeped in biological essentialism, with how you were born deciding what you could do and which society you were part of. The 'fight for rights' of the series followed the same model as 2nd feminism's whi...
