Attention ladies of the world! The time has come to start using that hot wax for aromatherapy candles and those razors for Sweeney Todd productions! Pubic hair removal is a thing of the past! At least that's what a new study from British pharmaceutical group UK Medix is telling me.  According to their statistics, 51% of women (out of 1,870 surveyed) "do not style or groom their pubic hair." 45% of these women attribute ditching the Sally Hansen to the simple ...

"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
Texas isn't exactly #1 when it comes to progressive policy-making. Recent legislation has disenfranchised lady-voters and made it nearly impossible to access a safe and legal abortion. Finally, the twinkle of hope we've been waiting for has emerged! Harris County, the jail serving the Houston area of Texas, has adopted comprehensive policy that states "discrimination or harassment of any kind based on sexual orientation or gender identity is strictly ...

In stuff you never thought about but is actually really cool news, a recent color restoration of an Addams Family on-set photo reveals not one inch of the doom and/or gloom you would expect.  Instead, the color scheme is bubblegum and bottle green! Since the show was filmed in black and white, it doesn't seem like there was a need to decorate with a specific color palette in mind. The look of the actual set in color is a little bit "Crazy Aunt Sally," and I'm ... Read More
While I may not agree with Miley Cyrus's every move (that was not a twerking pun, for the record), she's finally spouting some truth I can get behind: feminism. In an interview with BBC's radio program Newsbeat, Miley declared: "I feel like I'm one of the biggest feminists in the world because I tell women to not be scared of anything. I'm for anybody and everything. I don't care what you want to do in your life, or who you want to be with, who you want to love or ... Read More
  The current issue of New York Magazine features a stark white cover with the simple words "My Abortion" emblazoned across its center. This spark for discussion comes at a time when new abortion legislation is being passed constantly--leaving women with fewer and fewer options for safely and successfully ending an unwanted pregnancy. In an attempt to expose the human side of such a clinical issue, New York Magazine brings you 26 stories of abortion.  In ... Read More
Though former fashion-week front row-er Tavi Gevinson doesn't focus much on fashion these days, she's certainly looking most rad in Cole Haan's holiday ad campaign.  The campaign, whose theme is "Talented & Gifted," also features Broadway actors, entrepreneurs, and a 7th grade heavy-metal band (They're called "Unlock the Truth"--I am totally listening to them right now).   Tavi also has a hand-picked gift selection, which you can view here. You know, ... Read More

Unlike the rest of his peers, high school senior Jeydon Loredo will not be appearing in the La Feria School District yearbook. Why? Because Jeydon, who identifies as male, is wearing a tuxedo in his picture.  The tuxedo is standard wear for every other boy being photographed, but according to the school district, Jeydon's photo in particular does not meet "community standards." Wait...what? Can someone send a memo to these people that it's 2013?  Stella ... Read More
How do I love Fred Flare?...Let me count the ways! Where else could you score roller skates, a turntable, and a giant gummy bear on a stick...all at the same time? Fred Flare is the ultimate kooky-kitschy experience, perfectly curated for the total weirdo in all of us. Now, after fifteen years, the dream is over. Fred Flare creators, Chris and Keith, are reportedly "packing up the three cats" and "moving to the country" and we couldn't be any more bummed! There's ... Read More
