Woman Conceives Babies 2.5 Weeks Apart - Say What? →
I'll never get used to this.
[Scene - F train stops at Broadway/Lafayette, very pregnant woman gets on, all seats in the area are filled by men. Train stops at West 4th, by this point no man has gotten off or attempted to give her a seat. She's clutching the pole and her belly]
Me: (looking slightly peeved at closest 3 men) Do you think any of you might be willing to get up and give her a seat?
Man #1: What? Why?
Me: Isn't it obvious.
Man #2: If she wanted a seat she could ask.
Me: I'm sorry I don't think she should have to.
Man #1: This isn't the 'olden days.'
Me: Oh so, because women can now vote you shouldn't relinquish your seat to a pregnant woman? (Pregnant woman is half cheering me on/ half horrified. A man finally gets up - Man #3 - she thanks him and sits down)
Man #2: Women don't want men to hold doors or give them their seats. It's anti that feminism garbage.
Me: I don't know who told you that but for future reference if a visibly pregnant woman gets on a train and it's muggy and she looks exhausted or even if she doesn't - OFFER HER A SEAT. It's beyond the right thing to do.
Man #1: Why do you care? Are you pregnant? You don't look it.
Me: No, but my good friend Georgina is and I swear to God if this ever happened to her and I was there this convo would have escalated awhile ago.
Man #2: (Mutters something about liberal women.) I turn back on my ipod.
[What is wrong with people??? Why isn't it instinctual to give up your your seats to elderly people, injured people, and/or pregnant women? Am I missing something?]
nyminute: This morning on the subway, there were two men in my car, sitting across from each other. One was a very dapper looking white business man, dressed in a very fashion-conscious suit. The other was a younger, very tall black man, who was pulling on a suit jacket and tucking in his white shirt. When he got to putting on his tie, he pulled it around his neck and tried tying it. His first...
Planning a Wedding - The Social Media Way
I’m certainly not getting married anytime soon, but for those of you brides-to-be, using social media is a great way to plan your big day. Sure, there are some things that need to be done in person (like tasting the food of course), but a lot of the stress can be eased with the help of social media. Here is a great article on Mashable detailing all the ways to incorporate social media and...
Slowly But Surely Becoming a Real New Yorker
Last night I took another proud step in my life as New Yorker - I went to a comedy show. On a Monday night. At 11 pm. I went to see Aziz Ansari, whose roles in Parks & Recreations and Funny People have put him somewhat in the spotlight. I’ve watched some of his sets on YouTube (particularly his “hot tub” routine) and was so excited to check out his NYC show. At...

The Allergy Continues
If you’ve been a CaseyCulture reader for awhile, you’re familiar with my “allergy”. So what is this allergy, you might ask? Well, sometimes (not all the time) when I consume white wine, red wine or shellfish, I have a sneezing fit for a couple minutes and develop lots of little spots all over my face. After a bit of my own research, I think it might be an allergy to...
