Are My Working Class Roots Showing?

Class, like sexual identity, is on a continuum. Just as Benedict Cumberbatch is more feminine than Cameron Diaz, so are members of "Duck Dynasty's" Robertson family — estimated net worth of around $53 million — regarded by many fans as "real working guys" while Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader…See More

Note to Trump, your time is up

You know that Donald Trump actually got more speaking time than Hillary Clinton did in Sunday's presidential debate, don't you?He whined that she got more, but that's because he was using man-time, believing he should automatically get 17 percent more than any woman. It's like man money or man years: It's the math enabling Trump to justify…See More

4 Ways to Handle Arguments at Work: Advice for the Boss

Is "conflict resolution" an oxymoron? How does a true leader best handle conflict at work?The world tells us that people in positions of leadership must facilitate "conflict resolution" within their communities; this leads to the kinds of successes we've seen throughout the world (insert bitter…See More

Is "scary woman" redundant?

With Halloween trying to sneak up on us, it's time to look without fear at the differences between what makes men scary and what makes women scary.For example, your male villain in a horror movie must have third-degree peeling burns and open sores over most of his body; that's a given. It's a plus if he's wearing gloves with knives on the fingertips, like…See More

Six Things I'm Thankful For This Year

Posted on December 5, 2016 at 11:41am 0 Comments

What's the most unlikely thing in your life for which you give genuine and frequent thanks? What surprises you about your gratitude?

We know we should be grateful for whatever health we possess, whatever prosperity we enjoy and whatever cable or streaming devices to which we have access.

Yet, paradoxically, it's at those moments when the universe seems to let us down that we gain our most significant strengths.

In celebration of Thanksgiving, I've picked six items for…

We Don't Diet, We Have A 'Way of Eating'

Posted on December 5, 2016 at 11:39am 0 Comments

Have personal diets replaced personal philosophies?

Rules of everything from morality to etiquette no longer appear to apply. People will eagerly discuss their open relationships, their dismissal of religion, the fact that they didn't vote, their contempt for handwritten notes and their sexually transmitted diseases.

Yet these same people will also threaten never to speak to you again if you serve them runny eggs, pasteurized milk or any dish where the mashed potatoes have…

All Done With Crying All Over

Posted on November 7, 2016 at 12:56pm 1 Comment

I have cried on all forms of public transportation, including planes, trains, subways, buses and London tubes — I lived in England for several years — and, naturally, I've cried in my car.

Every woman who drives a car has cried in it; why there isn't a permanent tissue holder next to the steering wheel defies understanding and offers evidence for the need of women to be more prominent in STEM fields, particularly in automotive engineering and design.

Subways and tubes are the…

Hi Regina,

Just wondering - do we send our response to you?  Is there a specific guideline on length for the response?  Thanks and I look fforward to getting more of your prompts.  Be well.

I live in the Washington DC area, and I love when you're featured in Gene Weingarten's column, Below the Beltway. To be honest, I wasn't even sure you were a real person until I saw your post here. I thought maybe Gene made you up. Now I know I have many places to look for your opinions. Thanks for posting the series The Truth About Writing and Publishing.

Hi Regina! Cynthia just nominated you to edit Best American Essays in 2011 -- I read it on her SW page. Cool. Glad you are here -- and don't forget to nominate women or writers of color Houghton Mifflin Harcourt seems to be having so much trouble locating, and send your picks to Lori Glazer (head of publicity for HMH) at
lori_glazer@hmhpub.com
