It’s as if Wimbledon finalist Serena Williams never left the game at all

Implausible or predictable? Or both? Serena looks very much like the player who dominated tennis for so many years.

When Tom and Dom Left Gucci Group

A decade of near total creative control at Gucci and later Yves Saint Laurent saw Tom Ford at the top of his design game — critics swooned, celebrities wore and people bought, a rare trifecta in high fashion.
Ford’s rise to true design star was aided by the fact that Gucci was flailing when he came on board in 1990 to oversee women’s ready-to-wear, and didn’t really turn a corner until 1995, when Ford’s first fall collection as creative director hit the runway. The collection’s focus on bold, jet-set allure was a hit and set the brand on a path to dominate the late Nineties and early Aughts with slinky nighttime looks that mixed a little bit of grease with a lot of glamour. Ford’s tenure at the house was so successful that the revival of an ailing brand is still sometimes known as “doing a Gucci” and Natalie Massenet told WWD in 2004 that before Ford’s Gucci turnaround, ailing brands were simply left for dead. “He’s the defibrillator of fashion,” she said.
Ford also had a groundbreaking and often controversial marketing vision that gave new meaning to the age-old advertising quip: “sex sells.” In 2001, just after he’d taken the

NYPD Takes Suspect Into Custody After ‘Act of Terror’ in Lower Manhattan That Left Eight People Dead, and Injured at Least Twelve

NEW YORK — In what is being described as an act of terror, New York Police Department officials are still investigating an incident in lower Manhattan involving a vehicle that left eight people dead and injured more than a dozen.
In a press conference with NYPD Police Commissioner James O’Neill and FBI officials, as well as New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio described the incident as “an act of terror and a particularly cowardly act of terror aimed at innocent civilians going about their lives who had no idea what was about to hit them.”
The mayor continued, “We know that this act was intended to break our spirit but we also know that New Yorkers are strong, New Yorkers are resilient and our spirit will never be moved by an act of violence, an act meant to intimidate us. We have been tested before as a city very narthex site of today’s tragedy and New Yorkers do not give in in the face of these kids of actions. We will respond as we always do. We will be undeterred.”
De Blasio also asked all New Yorkers to be vigilant and “to live by the idea

Why Are Trans People Left Out Of LGBT History So Often?

Despite their pivotal role in advancing the queer community, trans people are often written out of history, Lourdes Hunter, the national director at Trans Women of Color Collective, explained to HuffPost Live earlier this week. But why is there such a tendency to cut out some of our most crucial trans pioneers from lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) history?

In the video above, Hunters, LGBT Healthlink director Dr. Scout and National Center for Transgender Equality executive director Mara Keisling discuss why trans people are often ignored in historical retellings and the impact that has on the trans community.

What I Told My Kids When They Asked Why Dad Left

It’s a question no divorced parent wants to hear after a messy separation: “Why did dad (or mom) leave?”

What are you suppose to say in response to a question that heavy? A lite, kid-friendly version of the truth? That what’s happening is a grownup issue but you both still love them very much? 

Below, HuffPost Divorce bloggers and readers share the responses they gave their kids when faced with that heartbreaking question. 

1. I gave them a simple, age-appropriate response.  

“My children were very young. One was just an infant and the other was 4 years old. We sat him down and said, ‘Daddy has decided that he wants to live alone so you’ll have two houses now. And we love you and your sister very much so that will never change.'” — Dina S. 

2. I told them it was a grownup matter.

“I said, ‘Our relationship and the reason for our divorce is between Daddy and I. We both love you very much.’ Period. Saying that was the best advice I ever got from a counselor.” — Carolyn S.   

3. I told my daughter a version of the truth. 

“My daughter was a baby. He left me for another woman who he is married to now. My daughter is 8 now and I tell her the partial truth. I couldn’t get around it because she is a smart cookie. I didn’t lie but I reassured her of how much she is loved by me, her Dad and his wife and I told her that I want her to love them both. It took me a long time to get to this place but I’m glad I did.” — Ginen M.  

4. I reminded my child of the love we still share as a family. 

“I said, ‘Your Dad and I love you very much. We weren’t a great married couple but we parted as friends and will always work together to give you everything you need.'” – Honorée C.

5. I told my son the truth.

“Our son was 22. I told him the truth: His Dad had been cheating and had left me for the other woman.” — Rebecca C.  

6. I told them it was a mutual decision.

“My ex-husband blindsided all of us — me and the boys. He left without warning one night saying he didn’t love me after he’d already planned a three week business trip, with no opportunity for the family to talk. I held down the fort and although angry and hurt, I came to terms with divorce. When he returned, we told our sons it was a mutual decision, even though it was not. In the end, it’s what’s best. We said there would be no more fighting, that the divorce was not about them but about us as grown ups. They would have a happy mom and a happy Dad and to do that we needed to live apart. I have never bad-mouthed him. But they know he left and treated me poorly. They have asked if he doesn’t love me anymore. I simply say that people change sometimes in marriages, but no matter what we both love them. That’s the best I can do right now: love them and take care of them.” — Jenny K. 

7. I told them Daddy and Mommy were going in different directions in life.

“My children were very young. I told them that their Dad and I wanted different things. He wanted to live his life differently than me.” — Sarah P. 

8. I suggested they ask their Dad what happened.  

“I was lucky enough to be in counseling with my ex to learn how to co-parent. He explained to our triplet boys that what he had done was something a married man should never do and that was why we were getting divorced. When the boys ask me what Daddy did, I tell that that is something you need to discuss with your Dad. My motto is ‘better not bitter.'” — Janice S.

Transgender Teen Left ‘Speechless’ After Mom’s Big Surprise

After months of waiting, a transgender teen’s request to legally change her name was finally approved. To celebrate the big moment, her mom organized a special surprise on Saturday.

The announcement left 16-year-old Gabrielle Diana Gladu utterly “speechless.”

In the video above, watch as Gabrielle’s mom, Rose Gladu, unveils a cake emblazoned with a special message.

“It took me a moment to process what it said on the cake,” Gabrielle, who lives in Ontario, told BuzzFeed News. “It said, ‘Congratulations, you are now Gabrielle!‘”

Rose says she wasn’t expecting the teen’s emotional reaction.

“I came up the with idea of the cake as a vehicle to celebrate her name change while having an informal family dinner with those that support, love and care for her,” Rose told Buzzfeed. “I was not expecting her to get so emotional that she became speechless. My daughter is never speechless. I knew at that moment my child came back to me. She was on her way to who she had been from birth.”

None of my transition would have been possible if I didn't have my mother

A photo posted by @gabrielledianaa on

For the past year, Gabrielle has been documenting her transition on her YouTube channel.  

In an August video, Gabrielle shared a letter to her younger self that urged her to “take chances” and be courageous. She also encouraged herself to come out to her parents sooner rather than later.

“At first, mom’s not going to take it very well. She’s going to be confused and she’s going to be scared. But I promise, in time, she will come around and she’ll be one of your best supporters ever,” the teen says to the camera.

My Husband Left Me For A Younger Woman — And Now I’m Online Dating

In the second instalment of her dating exploits after her husband walked out for a younger model, our new 50-something columnist Louisa Whitehead-Payne* hears from a horny farmer on Muddy Matches, lies about her age and finds that a ‘tactile soulmate’ is code for ‘sex with someone I like’.

As you read last week, I have eliminated escorts and adult dating from my enquiry into online dating. Despite not having had sex for six years, I’m going after something a bit more vanilla. But how to decide among the bewildering array of websites?

EHarmony, Match.com, Zoosk? I try one and to my horror it’s like a computer game or a supermarket loyalty scheme. You have to wink at people and earn coins! For what, for goodness sake? I find this gamification undignified and trivializing. Not for me … not the sort of fun and games I am after at all.

Muddy Matches: Hello Farmer

The Telegraph website recommends the usual suspects, plus there is Encounters from The Times and an odd one called Muddy Matches. Maybe there are dirty people on it? It turns out it is for people who like the country or who live in the country. Well, I have just moved to the country so I qualify…

The people on the site seem straightforward. Amid the odd horny-handed sons of the soil and pics of men and their tractors, there are some who look eminently suitable. And some with red trousers so there might even be some posh boys to boot! I pays my money and look to take my choice.

Goody, you can add people to your favorites so I save everyone who I think I might look at later. All of a sudden I get a message from handsome Nobby in Norfolk, who notes that I have added him to my favorites. What! How does he know? It doesn’t say he’s a clairvoyant on his profile. Why don’t they tell you that saving a person’s profile sends an alert to them? I had no idea! I have clearly said hello to dozens of men who no doubt will be on to me in a heartbeat.

Men’s Profile Photos

Dishy Nobby, who appears to own an Aga cooker (a good sign, I think), asks me why I haven’t uploaded a picture and I say that the site has yet to approve it. (Sites check pictures to keep it clean.)

The men’s pictures are generally poor quality. Lots of furtive selfies. I try to gauge if they are handsome. Tall, it tells you. Dark, some of the photos are so bad that, frankly, it’s hard to tell. Some even have cropped someone out as you can see a female hand just showing round the shoulder.

I discover that the norm is to have a portrait as your profile and a full length in the additional photos so that people can assess what sort of bod you have. There are lots of pics of men on holiday in their swimmers. Generally porkers don’t put a bod shot in.

A ‘Tactile Soulmate’: Code For Sex

I quickly work out that most men in their 50s are looking for much younger women. Good job I had lied about my age, then! It seems that to attract a man in his mid-50s I need to be 35 to 50. So my dating age of 48 looks like a good call. I am only lying to an algorithm, I tell myself.

When I meet them and they can see how lovely I look, I’ll come clean. The rank injustice of it makes me want to run round screaming.

People also speak in code. Men want tactile soulmates, it seems. I find this off-putting; are they proposing to stare meaningfully into my eyes and then feel me up in public? I later realize that this means they like sex, and the soulmate part means that they’d prefer to quite like the woman too.

The Times Dating Site: Encounters

A friend of mine recommends Encounters, a site for Times readers, so I subscribe on the basis that the men will be likely to be older and intelligent if not necessarily tall. There are loads more men than the Muddy ones. Lots more men from London. Lots more odd people, including a Mr Grey who wants to spank us.

I am not very keen on dating men from London. Probably unfair, but I feel that there is too much competition. Too many young women from Eastern Europe with great bodies, small bank balances, trick pelvises (probably) and 30 years on me. I won’t stand a chance.

Messages from all my favorites on Muddy Matches roll in. Not. There is one from a toothless man in his seventies in my inbox and I am still waiting for handsome, Aga-owning Nobby to get back to me.

You need to learn a new language. Find out how the sites work before you start. The odds are stacked against you if you are female and older. But, life isn’t fair, and you just have to get over it.

How This Woman Left A Sexless Marriage And Found Relationship Bliss

Lindsey Ellison first experienced sexual incompatibility with the man who would become her husband when she was in her mid-20s. After a largely sexless 17-year marriage, she decided to end the relationship, and now she’s in a sexually satisfying union with her husband of over a year.

Ellison, who works as a divorce coach, shared her story with HuffPost Live’s Nancy Redd on Tuesday. After struggling with intimacy, Ellison thought there could be something “hormonally wrong” with her. When a doctor found no physical problem, Ellison realized the trouble was coming from a handful of issues within her relationship.

“The sex part of it was just really an ingredient to a much larger recipe,” she said.

When she hit her mid-30s, Ellison gave herself permission to seek sexual fulfillment and decided to leave her “incredibly lonely” marriage. The key to finding the happiness she has now, Ellison said, was being up-front with her new partner from the get-go.

“When I met my [new] husband, I almost feel as though it was the second date [when] I said, ‘Hey, FYI, these are my requirements and this is my parameter, and I refuse to have a sexless marriage,'” she remembered. “I probably gave him the amount of days I expected [to have sex] because I just didn’t want to go back to that place.”

Ellison closed by offering some words of advice to other women who are newly out of a relationship:

It’s one thing if [newly single women] just — let me put it bluntly — if they just want to get laid. Go for it. I say use protection and just manage your expectations and his… If you’re coming out of a relationship where you’re feeling wounded or vulnerable, my advice is to get your love mojo back on for yourself. Worry about sex, do things by yourself, go to a sex toy store, do what you need to do, and really protect yourself because you can get hurt and get sucked back into another unhealthy relationship if you don’t really know what you’re doing.

Where Orange Is the New Black Left Off

Orange is the New Black

One of the side effects of consuming a show in a single weekend—in addition to canceled plans, too much take-out, and too-few showers—is that you are more likely to forget what you actually watched. This Friday, after a year on the outside, we’re returning to Litchfield for the third season of Orange Is the New Black. Assuming you haven’t done any preemptive binge-watching, we’ve boiled down thirteen episodes-worth of drama, betrayal, and sock-beatings into six story lines to remind you just where we left off in OITNB.



Orange is the New Black

Piper and Alex

 

Major story lines:
After she and her on-again off-again girlfriend Alex (Laura Prepon) have their testifying snafu in Chicago, Alex is released and Piper (Taylor Schilling) ends up back in Litchfield. After Piper’s grandmother dies, she is granted furlough—much to the dismay and anger of the rest of the inmates. At her grandmother’s wake, Larry tells her that he’s slept with someone else (Polly, Piper’s best friend).
Resolution:
She and Alex reopen lines of communication (of course), and Alex tells Piper that she bought a gun because she’s so terrified that her old drug boss, whom she testified against, is coming to kill her. Piper eventually rats Alex out, saying that she’s in danger of violating her parole and Alex is taken back to Litchfield. Meanwhile, Larry and Polly fall in love and leave their respective partners for each other.

Vee and Red

 

Major story lines:
Vee (Lorraine Toussaint) appears for the first time in season two, but the character is no stranger to Litchfield. Years prior, when Red (Kate Mulgrew) was also a new inmate, she had a devoted following and viciously beat Red when she refused to cede control of her early day kitchen smuggling. In season two, in an effort to regain control after her kitchen was reassigned, Red begins funneling her contraband through the prison’s greenhouse—and Vee wants in. Vee’s brutality and manipulation is on full display in season two. Through a series of flashbacks, we learn that Taystee fell into the world of drug dealing at a young age, thanks in large part to Vee, who had been Taystee’s pseudo-mother on the outside. In Vee’s current sentence, she enlists Crazy Eyes to act as her muscle and the rest of the gang eventually pledges their allegiance. Together, they begin a cigarette and drug trade. Red later attacks Vee via plastic wrap, but is unable to bring herself to kill her. The two decide to call off their rivalry and they make a truce. The next morning, Vee, armed with a padlock-stuffed sock, viciously beats Red in her greenhouse.
Resolution:
Everything falls apart for Vee by the end of season two. After her heroin stash is stolen (by Nicky), Vee begins to alienate her gang and her spell begins to lift. Vee tries to get Crazy Eyes to take the fall for Red’s attack, but Tastyee, Cindy, and the rest of the group recant their testimony. With no allies, Vee escapes Litchfield through Red’s greenhouse tunnel.

Morello and Miss Rosa

 

Major storyline:
After finding out that Christopher is marrying another woman, Morello (Yael Stone) steals the van, while Miss Rosa (Barbara Rosenblat) is in treatment, and drives to Christopher’s house. Once there, Morello puts on Christopher’s fiancée’s wedding veil, takes a bath, and dozes off—narrowly missing Christopher. Through her backstory, we see that Christopher was never her fiancé—but rather a man she relentlessly stalked after one date. Meanwhile, while undergoing chemo treatments, Miss Rosa befriends a young boy who is also battling cancer and we learn about her bank robbing past and her “cursed” history with men. Her chemo treatments are not working and her doctor informs her that she has only three to six weeks to live.
Resolution:
Morello, aiding in her escape, leaves the keys in the van and Miss Rosa drives away from Litchfield to live out her final days outside the prison walls. While on her drive to freedom, Rosa runs over Vee.

Mom Who Left Babies Alone In Hot Car Explains Her Decision

Shanesha Taylor first made headlines last year when she was arrested for leaving her two young sons in a hot car while she went to a job interview in Scottsdale, Arizona. Homeless at the time, the single mom was desperate to land the position that she describes as a life-changing opportunity.

But that desperation led to a near-tragic decision. In the video above, Taylor explains what led her to leave her then 6-month-old baby and 2-year-old alone in a hot car — possibly over 100 degrees — in March 2014. After her babysitter fell through, she explains, “I became frantic, but I knew I couldn’t miss this interview.” So she drove to the job interview with her two kids, who fell asleep in the car. Believing the interview would take only 15 minutes, she decided to leave her sons in the car with the windows cracked. Taylor recalls, “I peeked in the back window at the boys and said, ‘Fifteen minutes, let’s go!'”

But the interview took more than 15 minutes, and Taylor felt she had no choice but to continue meeting with her potential employers. “You know this job is going to take care of your family. How do you say, ‘Stop the interview, because I need to go?'” she asks.

By the time she returned to the car, the police were waiting.

“After I finished the interview,” she says, “I was on top of the world. As soon as I turned the corner into the parking lot, my life came crashing down.”

Taylor was arrested and charged with two felony counts of child abuse and spent 11 days in jail. Her tearful mugshot went viral, prompting an outpouring of sympathy. Strangers sensitive to her efforts to create a better life for her family donated more than $ 100,000 to a crowdfunding page set up on her behalf. She was offered a deal to avoid prosecution, but the deal required her to allocate the donated money to a trust for her children. Why didn’t she comply, and how does she respond to allegations that she misused the donations?

On Thursday’s episode of Dr. Phil, Taylor opens up about the incident. In hindsight, does she think she made a mistake?

Teacher Who Had Sexual Relationship With 15-Year-Old Claims Marriage Left Her Craving Attention

What could lead a 27-year-old married teacher with a young son to have a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old student? Jennifer Caswell, known as Jennifer Sexton before her recent divorce, speaks out for the first time since the former middle school teacher from Hollis, Oklahoma, was charged with three counts of second-degree rape.

Caswell, who taught sixth, seventh and eighth grade, recalls when the student/teacher relationship became inappropriate. “He was flirty. I should have put a stop to it then, and I didn’t,” she says. “I wasn’t used to getting attention. It felt nice to have someone to compliment me and things like that, because I felt very unwanted.”

She tells Dr. Phil that she felt vulnerable during her seven-year marriage. “I never got complimented. Never even got a birthday present, Christmas present, for Valentine’s Day, nothing. I felt really bad about myself,” she says, fighting tears. “I never thought I’d be in this situation. I’m not a monster and I’m not a predator. I made a stupid decision.”

Dr. Phil asks, “Would you say the marriage was not a good marriage?”

Caswell explains, “We didn’t fight, but that’s only because we didn’t talk. It was like living with a roommate … He would come home. He would talk on the phone to his friends for an hour or two, and then he would go to the playroom and play his Xbox until 1 or 2 in the morning.”

Dr. Phil probes, “Was he affectionate with you physically?”

“No, we never held hands or cuddled on the couch or anything like that,” Caswell says. “I wanted that. I mean, I need that and I wasn’t getting it there.”

She claims her former student reacted to her quite differently. “He would always tell me how beautiful I was and how I was a good person on the inside,” says Caswell about the teen, whom she describes as “funny” and “mature.”

Watch as Caswell describes how they became intimate in her classroom, and see more from Dr. Phil’s exclusive interview on Tuesday’s episode — check local listings here.

I Became A Desperate Housewife In My 20s, So I Left

“This Is Divorce At…” is a HuffPost Divorce series delving into divorce at every stage of life. Want to share your experience of divorcing at a certain age? Email us at divorce@huffingtonpost.com or tweet @HuffPost Divorce.

Amy Strickland stayed in an unhappy marriage throughout her twenties because she feared being on her own. At 31, she finally got the nerve to leave the relationship and reclaim her life.

“I have been divorced for five years now and I think my experiences — the good, the bad and the ugly — are relatable to anyone who’s afraid to move forward with a divorce,” she told The Huffington Post.

Below, Strickland shares more of her story.

I loved ‘Desperate Housewives’ when it was on. Of course I did. How could you not? It was a show about married women who were mostly unhappy and looking for something more, whether in their careers, home or love lives — and they did it with an amazing wardrobe to boot.

I didn’t realize it then, but that was my life in my mid-to-late twenties: I was a desperate housewife (minus the fabulous wardrobe, unfortunately). I was married to a soldier who wasn’t there even when he was standing next to me. At 31, I finally decided that I would rather just be desperate without the housewife title.

Yes, I filed for divorce. Yes, I felt like a failure. Yes, I thought I was ruining my children’s life and my own. Yes, for a moment I thought that maybe I should stay and one day a hot plumber would come along and rescue me. In the end, I realized it wasn’t going to be a man that made my life better, complete or even happy — it would have to be me. So I became a divorcé at 31 and everything, including who I was as a person, changed.

In my marriage, I had become that girl: The one who thinks she needs someone to be someone in this world. I had no idea I had morphed into her until I was on my own. Suddenly, I wasn’t a wife. I realized I only needed myself, even if I had no idea what that meant at the time. Eventually, I found out: I went back to school. I earned a bachelor’s degree — a goal that had become a long-lost dream while I was married. Now I’m starting a master’s program. These days, I don’t need anyone else to define me.

Every decision I made while married was based on fear. I was scared to raise a baby by myself so I married. I was scared to be alone so I stayed. I was scared to look at myself and see all the ways that I was flawed so nothing changed. But I had spent so much time paralyzed with fear that I wasn’t actually living. I wasn’t enjoying life.

If you’re a going through a divorce, especially at a young age, know that you can be in control of your life again. You don’t have to be a real-life desperate housewife (or husband). We all have had our own journeys: Some of us choose to leave, others have been left. I hope that while you make your way you remember that you are not the only one who walks this hard road. There may be no one next to you at this moment but you are in no way alone.

Left Bank vs. Right Bank: A Guide to Parisian Style Icons on Both Sides of Town

Françoise Hardy​ and Capucine

Fashion never stands still. The latest shake-up doesn’t involve revolving doors, but a change of address: After more than four decades on the tony Avenue George V, Saint Laurent will be moving its headquarters to the bohemian Left Bank in 2018. This relocation is highly symbolic and another example of how creative director and change agent Hedi Slimane is, as Nathan Heller noted in Vogue, actively tweaking the soigné roots of the house toward something cooler. The Los Angeles–based Slimane has no interest in b.c.b.g. bon chic, bon genre, a sort of codified good taste; rather he’s fascinated by grunge and glam, as evidenced by the rock chicks, with their winged eyes and ripped fishnets he sent down the runway for fall.

Because Yves Saint Laurent was already a living legend and largely retired from public life when he took his final bow at the couture show in 2002, it is easy to forget that Saint Laurent, much like the character the YSL-clad Catherine Deneuve plays in Belle de Jour, was fascinated by the high and the low. “Yves, like me,” said Saint Laurent’s muse Betty Catroux in 2010, “had a passion for black leather, and all that was a bit louche.” In fact, one of his first acts of sartorial rebellion—one which indirectly cost him his job at Dior in 1960—was showing Beat-style moto jackets in crocodile to his couture clients. (Another was to champion the model Victoire Doutreleau, who was initially scorned for her “Left Bank look.”)

Saint Laurent might have been a king of couture, but in 1966, led by his intuitive sense of what was happening on the street, he became a pioneer of ready-to-wear with the debut of Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche. “The phenomenon of creation is the same in the haute couture or the ready-to-wear,” Saint Laurent said in 1968. “To me, there is no couture, there is just clothing.” So committed was the designer to his new line that for several years he banned the press from his couture showings to keep the focus on his off-the-peg fashions, which, while youthful, were anything but cheap and cheerful: “Compared with London’s Carnaby Street,” noted one contemporary journalist, “the boutiques of Saint-Germain and its environs are citadels of good taste.”

Saint Laurent came from a privileged background; Slimane was raised in the Nineteenth Arrondissement, on the Rive Droite, both were fascinated by the Left Bank, historically home to artists, rebels, and intellectuals—Picasso to Piaf. By 1957 the Left Bank’s “Beat” was so pandemic that it was co-opted by Hollywood (cue Funny Face). In 1966, the year Saint Laurent launched Rive Gauche, the wire services were reporting on the “jazzy fashion boutiques that have suddenly made Boulevard St. Germain and its environs the heart of young Paris style.” The power and allure of this bohemian style was, of course, only heightened by the proximity of its polar opposite, the Right Bank, where power and propriety hold sway. Here, a look back at French icons from both sides of the Seine.

Arson Caused Downtown L.A. Fire That Left $30 Million In Damage

The massive fire in Downtown L.A. that caused up to $ 30 million in damage, and closed down two freeways was set deliberately, officials determined Wednesday (Dec. 17). The DaVinci Apartments were unfinished when all seven-stories burned to the ground on Dec 8.

“The work at the crime scene is finished, however our investigation is not over,” said ATF Special Agent in Charge Carlos Canino, “ATF will continue to work together with our state and local partners to investigate this crime and bring those responsible to justice.”

Investigators sifted through 75,000 square feet of debris in order to rule out any “known potential accidental causes.”

Two potential witnesses are being sought after for questioning. No suspects have been named.

Local and federal authorities will work together to complete the investigation, Los Angeles Fire Department Battalion Chief Robert Nelson said. “We will use all of our available resources to arrest and prosecute any individuals involved in any arson fire in Los Angeles.”

25 Reasons Kids Should Be Left Alone With Their Dads

Making fun of dads because they are “pretty much just giant children” is soooooooo 2011. Maybe y’all ain’t heard, but dads are getting all sorts of respect lately — not because they’re doing anything different, but because — ugh — who didn’t want to loosen up the grip a little, amirite?

Buzzfeed didn’t get the memo, so they put out a hilarious article titled “24 Reasons Kids Should Never Be Left Alone With Their Dads”. And besides some of the photos being genuinely funny with no real gender-specific blame to lather onto dad, it’s just kind of, well, you know… phoned in.

But here’s the thing: when you beat dads down over and over and make moms distrustful of them (even in jest), all it makes society say is “don’t leave your kids alone with dad — you KNOW what they do!” And then guess who has to deal with the pressure of raising kids, working, and doing their damn thing? Moms. So lay off, kk?

In light of this, I present to you 24 reasons (plus a bonus, you motherlovers) your kids should be left alone with their dads.

1. They’re Not Too Cool for Selfies


Because honestly, if a kid silly face will brighten your kid’s day, you check your pride and do it.

2. They Make the Coolest Lunch Pack-ins


Look for a Q&A with this dude here soon. Incredible work.

3. They’re Not Afraid of Creepy-Crawlies


There’s a couple of good “lizard” euphemisms I’ll pass up here.

4. They Know Their Way Around a Garden


And teaching a love for eating right!

5. The Best Family Portraits EVAR


Like, honestly.

6. They’ll Be At Every Game


Even if they’ve got two broken legs, they’ll make it there.

7. Family Movies in the Man-Cave


Because it’s just a cave if it’s not filled with family.

8. They’ll Wait Hours to Get You Next to the Trophy


You won’t care now, son, but when you’re older, it’ll be cool to have a pic of three generations next to that thing.

9. Discipline Is Sometimes in Character


Though really, everything BatDad does is in character.

10. Medical/Dental/Vision Insurance is a Number One Priority!


But you know what I mean.

11. They’re Into Crafts

And not above making up superheroes.

12. They Will Tell the Hell Out of a Story

Anything to make a bedtime story better.

13. They Beam With Pride


About everything their kids do — big and small.

14. They Make Great Pillows


And they don’t just run to Twitter to complain about it and demand wine.

15. They Aren’t Afraid


When their child arrived, they dove right in.

16. They Will Be Your Training Wheels


Until you can go it alone.

17. Seriously, the BEST Lunch Notes


We Q&A’d with this guy! Read it here!

18. They’re Not Afraid to Hold You Close


And take you everywhere.

19. They Let Their Kids Play With Their Old Toys


Because you can’t take it with you when you’re gone.

20. They Will Ride That Ride


Because it means a lot to you, son.

21. They Have Good Advice


Sometimes so good that it ends up in a book.

22. They Have a Conference About Being a Good Dad


And the support there flows. Pic of dad blogger Lorne Jaffe.

23. They Can Show Mercy


From BusyDadBlog: “She said ‘aw it’s so cute’ and proceeded to pet this fish. Of course we had to let it go.”

24. They Will Catch You


Not just when you fall, but when you jump.

25. They Honor Their Spouses With Pictures Too


Because if they didn’t respect their spouses, why would they be raising a kid with them?!

Your move, Buzzfeed.

25 Reasons Kids Should Be Left Alone With Their Dads

Making fun of dads because they are “pretty much just giant children” is soooooooo 2011. Maybe y’all ain’t heard, but dads are getting all sorts of respect lately — not because they’re doing anything different, but because — ugh — who didn’t want to loosen up the grip a little, amirite?

Buzzfeed didn’t get the memo, so they put out a hilarious article titled “24 Reasons Kids Should Never Be Left Alone With Their Dads”. And besides some of the photos being genuinely funny with no real gender-specific blame to lather onto dad, it’s just kind of, well, you know… phoned in.

But here’s the thing: when you beat dads down over and over and make moms distrustful of them (even in jest), all it makes society say is “don’t leave your kids alone with dad — you KNOW what they do!” And then guess who has to deal with the pressure of raising kids, working, and doing their damn thing? Moms. So lay off, kk?

In light of this, I present to you 24 reasons (plus a bonus, you motherlovers) your kids should be left alone with their dads.

1. They’re Not Too Cool for Selfies


Because honestly, if a kid silly face will brighten your kid’s day, you check your pride and do it.

2. They Make the Coolest Lunch Pack-ins


Look for a Q&A with this dude here soon. Incredible work.

3. They’re Not Afraid of Creepy-Crawlies


There’s a couple of good “lizard” euphemisms I’ll pass up here.

4. They Know Their Way Around a Garden


And teaching a love for eating right!

5. The Best Family Portraits EVAR

6. They’ll Be At Every Game
