Two weeks ago, La Guardia airport's terminal D was the equivalent of Apocalypse Now, with D standing for Doom, Delays and Deficient A/C. I was trying to fly back to my hometown for a mini-vacation to no avail, with Tropical Storm Arthur being all sassy-like, moving up the East Coast like he owned it and canceling flight after flight. My number of failed standby attempts was matched only by the number of overpriced dirty martinis I drank in the terminal bar ... Read More

In a recent interview with InStyle Magazine, Zooey Deschanel let out a secret- not all women are dying to have babies! Dang it, Zooey, the men weren’t supposed to know!
In all seriousness, though, as someone who is not interested in having kids and hears all sorts of opinions on the topic (“You’re too young to decide!” “You just haven’t met the right guy yet!” “What if someday you’re with a guy who really wants ... Read More

Last weekend, A Voice For Men, an online male activism site which was mentioned in the 2012 Southern Poverty Law Center intelligence report about misogynistic sites, hosted the first ever International Conference on Men’s Issues. Yep. Activists of all genders gathered to talk about the oppression of males in our society.
I’m honestly not sure how to react to this. I spend all day every day blogging about the oppression that women face on a ... Read More

I have a confession, everyone! I’ve joined the online dating community and so far, it’s been a mothereffing rollercoaster. Before I begin, if any of the guys have Googled me and found this, for the sake of our potential future: stop reading now. Kidding (not really, though). So, I joined a popular, free website a couple months ago because I was sick of meeting no one interesting and liked the idea of window shopping for men in the comfort of my home. ... Read More

Feminist Frank is the meme of the week! Guys could take a few pointers from our friend, Frank. Gentlemen: if you ever find that you're tempted to be a sexist pig in a conversation, try ending every comment with the thought that women are human beings! Super effective and really swell.
I leave off with one of my favorite quotes by Kelley Temple: “Men who want to be feminists do not need to be given a space in feminism. They need to take the ... Read More
Ladies are central to the kid’s television series Adventure Time; I’d go so far as to assert that Marceline the Vampire Queen is one of the most elegantly drawn and complex female characters on TV today. Unfortunately for us girls, McDonald's has excluded all female characters from their new collection of Adventure Time happy meal toys. Yup, that’s right; there isn’t a bubblegum pink dress in sight!
Apparently, the toy ... Read More

In the past, Pantene has had some pretty fabulous commercials (did anyone else tear up at the one about the violinist?) but their latest takes the cake.
The clip focuses on men and women who are living and working on parallel paths. While the men are praised for their dedication and ingenuity, the women are perceived negatively for the same actions. Surprise, surprise, right? While it isn't exactly news that driven women are prone to being perceived as ... Read More

“Millions of women find themselves being told to break the glass ceiling,” Maria Shriver explained to Matt Lauer this morning on the Today Show, “and yet they feel that there is no foundation for them to stand on. It's hard to add another crack to the ceiling when you are standing on a cracked floor.” Let’s face it: women today are forced to be excellent multi-taskers. Instead of just having it all, we’re doing it all as ... Read More

A new study suggests that the stereotypical environment in which we raise our daughters (think Barbie, Easy-Bake Ovens, and co.) isn't just impacting her mental health, but her physical well-being, too! Researchers at Oregon State University are finding that immunity later in life can be linked back to the play habits of young children. Boys are traditionally encouraged to frolic in the dirt, make mud pies, and eat worms. Girls are kept tucked away indoors to play ... Read More
