    That absolutely terrifies me. Women “trust” those sources?? A sad commentary on life today.

    What does it mean to “trust” Pinterest? All it is is a bunch of pretty pictures of things I can’t afford and/or don’t have the time to make. Maybe the trust level is high because it’s so non-controversial.
