"You Assaulted Me, Now Can You Please Call Me Back?" - A Sad But Honest Look Into the Mind of a... Victim?
I've had my share of disagreements with websites Everyday Feminism and Feministing... But I actually do agree with much of their content. Or at least see value in it. For example, Reina Gattuso's recent piece, You Assaulted Me, Now Can You Please Call Me Back?
Summer is here, and you know what that means: sunshine! Daydream! Vacation!
But, unfortunately, many people worry about gaining weight over the holiday. The good news is, vacation weight gain is not inevitable. In fact, using these three tips, you might keep the weight off more easily than ever -- without resorting to carrots and other boring "diet foods."
Are you really expressing yourself -- or are you just dressing a certain way? Are you really showing the world your true self -- or are you just putting on a performance for an audience?
The Stanford Marching Band once scattered from POTATO to NOTATO during their infamous field show, "These Irish, Why Must They Fight?" at the University of Notre Dame. The joke, while hilarious, did not go over well.
Turns out the potato famine was devastating and killed millions of people.
The good news is! Scientists are working on a modified potato that is resistant to late blight (the cause of the famine), so nothing like that will ever happen again.
A Quick Follow-Up to #NationalSendANudeDay: Almost Everyone You Sext Shares Your Pic With At Least One Person
When I saw #NationalSendANudeDay trending on Twitter last, I thought it was dumb and would obviously go away soon.

A few months ago, I wrote Intersectionality is the OPPOSITE of Feminism. In it, I gave several examples of causes that are unrelated to feminism taking precedence over actual women's issues -- all in the name of "intersectionality."

The Economist recently published Envy at 30,000 Feet - Resentment of first-class passengers may be a cause of air rage. In it, the author reports,
"Passengers in economy class are 3.8 times more likely to become unruly if the plane also contains a first-class section. If those passengers have to walk through first class to get to their seats, their odds of experiencing air rage double again."
Psychologists have been studying play behavior in children for a hundred years. The importance of play -- including rough-and-tumble play -- is undeniable.
Yet misguided educators have decided that musical chairs isn't appropriate for kids, anymore, and you won't believe why.
At this point in time, it's pretty widely known that social media is horrible for us. It makes us sad. It makes us lonely. It makes us jealous. It makes us boring.
