According to the project's website, suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US and a suicide is attempted every 40 to 60 seconds. ... Read More
In 1997, Michelle Tea and Sini Anderson founded "Sister Spit," an all-girls weekly, free open mic night.

Are They? and The Dateable Rules, both of which prove him to be the ultimate Jerky McJerkface. In his books he suggests that young women, “be mysterious. ... Read More
Long live the 90's craze! To complement that $60 flannel shirt you just bought from Urban Outfitters, why not dig even deeper into the age of Nirvana and scrunchies with the Tamagotchi App?! You heard me right, people. Now you can care for your totally useless, pixilated virtual pets on your mobile device of choice. Tamagotchi L.i.f.e.

This week, the United States Senate will be debating the Military Justice Improvement Act. The controversial legislation would alter the military legal process as it stands. Rather than the "chain of command" handling prosecution, cases will be dealt with by an "impartial military prosecutor." You should care about this because it will change how the military deals with rape and sexual assault by stifling "retaliation" against those reporting sexual crimes, as ... Read More
This past Saturday’s SNL was a step up from the show’s material of late, with host Lady Gaga proving to be an actually pretty funny lady. What would have made the show even better, however, is this crazy unaired skit titled, “Female Sea Captains,” which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. Watch Lady Gaga and the rest of the kick-ass SNL ladies sail the high seas (sort of), mock traditional female stereotypes, and speak in crazy ... Read More
"Oh Christ! I couldn't care less!" said Doris Lessing upon hearing she had won the 2007 Nobel Prize for literature. Such a response wasn't a surprise from a writer who aimed to live as freely as possible, unencumbered by neither societies expectations nor accolades.  Lessing carved her own distinct and liberated route through motherhood, sexuality, politics, and mental health. These topics were best explored in, what is often considered her masterpiece, The ... Read More
