Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Quite moving.

Is it true? It's the journalism-kindred-spirit-whirlwind story. What happens? People get together and piece together a trail- and it works. The crime in question is sexual abuse. What do I think? I'm tired, and, if it please you, don't wish to put something down here- then go backwards and forwards changing what I say, ad infinitum. 1. I thought that the framing of it, the picture an audience looked at, was elegant. 2. I felt safe. 3. Good night. PS. Having slept on it, the goodies in this, rear children. Sex goes really badly wrong, when it's about anything else. This feels not entirely real.
