The [Esther Earl Rockin’ Charity Ball] is on Esther Day, and they’re gonna dance in [Esther’s] honor. Thousands of people dancing - ‘cause Esther, she said - and I’m quoting her tweet - “I just want to be able to reach into bodies and pull out the cancer without hurting anybody, and I want to be able to dance. And I want the gift of words.”
And she’s got it.
She can’t dance - she’s not here to dance - but every time we look around the room and we see people dancing, we see Esther. And every time somebody does something good and right and honorable, we’re doing the work that she can no longer do.– Wayne Earl on Here and Now’s piece on Esther Earl and This Star Won’t Go Out.

why so we have boyfriends and girlfriends when we could have “datemates” which
- is genderneutral
- avoids confusion between girl friends and girlfriends and boy friends and boyfriends
- means you don’t have to introduce your adult partner by an infantilizing term
- is cute too
