With Halloween just around the corner, every store is bursting with the same lame costumes they have every year...Batman, Spiderman, and of course their barely-there female counterparts! These skin-tight and ultra-revealing looks got me thinking...If you're going to be fighting bad guys (or good guys!) you would need some serious comfort and breathe-ability instead of latex lingerie.   Illustrator Celeste Pille was thinking just the same thing when she used ...

If you haven't fantasized about having a bestie like Amy Poehler, then you're lying to yourself. Finally, in an interview with Vulture, she has revealed to the masses just what it takes to be deemed worthy of late-night texting marathons and corny birthday presents: "Money, connections, power, sexiness, thick hair, fast cars, a sweet-ass booty, and a desire to travel. All those things." Admittedly, her standards are pretty high, but I'd do it all to have just one ... Read More
In recent "Things That Will Scar You For Life" news, a Utah dad by the name of Scott Mackintosh could be seen sporting a pair of Daisy Dukes on a recent family outing. Unfortunately, this wasn't some sort of American Beauty-style mid-life crisis, but rather a questionable parenting technique used to make his daughter, Myley, rethink her fashion choices.  "In our family, we have pretty definite modesty guidelines," he said. "I'm a firm believer that the ... Read More
Warning: Keep preparatory tissues at hand. This one is a tear-jerker.   On August 30th, a newborn elephant at the Shendiaoshan Wild Animal Nature Reserve in China was repeatedly stomped on by his mother. The zookeepers initially felt that this had to be an accident, and removed Zhuangzhuang (the baby elephant's proper name) from the area to tend to his wounds. However, upon returning Zhuanghzhuang to his habitat, the mother began her stomping again. The ... Read More
This morning, I started my day with a chuckle after stumbling upon New York Magazine's "39 Things We'll Miss About the Patriarchy, Which is Dead". The article came as a response to Slate Magazine's piece "The Patriarchy is Dead" (subtitle: Feminists, accept it.) (sub-subtitle: ugh, gross.) Check out a few of the things New York Magazine says they will miss the most about the dead-and-buried patriarchal structure: 1. The 200 abortion restrictions passed since ... Read More
      New York city is abuzz with models in sleek black trousers, the clacking of high heels and the occasional clown ensemble. This is…FASHION WEEK. As someone who wore combat boots to her high school prom, I find most expensive designer clothes daunting and painful. That’s why I’m making a list of the wearable collections that I would actually throw down on. In a nutshell: A Grunge Girl's Guide to Fashion Week. (Warning: ... Read More
"The Six Ways We Talk About Teenage Girls," recently published on Salon.com, sheds light on a devastating double standard that teen girls deal with every day. The article maps out six ways in which society redefines age in order to justify a legal and mental lack of consent. As a culture, we seem to have adapted the patterns of Nabokov's novel, in which the main character lusts after a 12 year old girl, completely blinding himself to her mere facade of emotional ...

Since she first crooned that tear-jerking hook on Macklemore & Ryan Lewis's now infamous gay-rights anthem "Same Love," singer Mary Lambert has gone from working three jobs to recording full-time.  Her latest milestone comes in the form of her first music video, for none other than the single "She Keeps Me Warm." After watching the clip, I couldn't help but notice that it left out a few key elements necessary for music videos of today: There were no ... Read More
