Last week, a video called “The Flip Side (Bar)” went viral, parodying male/female dynamics in the club scene. The video depicts men acting stereotypically female, and vice versa.

I remember watching this video years ago, feeling a chill come over me as I read the words written by Amanda in black marker on the cards she holds up to the camera. Half her face is out of the shot, but as the story progresses, you can still see the overwhelming ... Read More
