I think I can speak for many people when I say reading the Time article "It’s Time to End ‘Rape Culture’ Hysteria" by Caroline Kitchens felt like a punch of fire to the stomach. Reducing a traumatic and life-altering crime like rape to “hysterics” is harmful and dangerous on so many levels, not to mention it is just plain insulting. Hysteria. Hmmm, where have we heard that term before?
The term “hysteria” ... Read More
I am so sick of the lame old stereotype “women are more emotional than men.” Aside from being blatantly false, it does damage. Often, women are disrespected in the workplace if we get heated over something important, or we’re told to “stop PMS-ing” if we have a personal drama. I will always remember the Sex and the City episode in which Samantha Jones is berated for being a working woman and cries only when she gets in the ... Read More
It's no surprise these days that families are getting smaller, women are moving up in their careers, and Fox News is crying about "the war on men."
TIME magazine's newest issue explores this phenomenon, simplified as the "child-free" life, discussing findings that more women are having fewer or no children than they were in previous generations. The TIME piece says that todays birthrate in the United States is at an all time low.
"From 2007 to 2011, the most ... Read More

Tina Fey has the likability of a happy sloth raised to the power of ten babies getting tickled. Basically, we all like her and she’s awesome.

According to a TIME profile released today, Fey has a bunch of upcoming projects that are sure to excite comedy nerds, improv freaks, and ... Read More

TIME’s Paul Moakley uncovered a softer side of Tin Man presidential candidate Mitt Romney, shown in a romantic photo he sent to then-girlfriend Ann in 1968.
Romney apparently sent Ann a series of similar photos, an effort to keep her interested while he was doing missionary work in France.
The two married just a few months after he returned to the ... Read More

Online dating sites aren’t just for humans anymore! Now animals are getting hooked up too, Time reports. A computerized system is being used to match the most desirable animals from different zoos, taking their behavioral patterns, geography, and individual quirks into account to find their best mating matches. Heath, a 12-year-old river otter in California's Oakland Zoo successfully mated with Ginger, a 5-year-old, who was brought over from ... Read More

He Who Shall Not Be Named questioned Hillary Clinton's validity after she was named one of TIME's most influential people. This is her 6th time to make the list and her second time to be honored for her work as Secretary of State. It's well-earned, too, considering to date she has spent 1,647.4 hours (that's 68.6 days) traveling to 95 countries on behalf of our nation.
I won't go into the blatant misogyny behind his immature claims that "all she is is ... Read More
