  Yoko Ono and son Sean Lennon have assembled a coalition of artists against fracking in New York, aptly named Artists Against Fracking. In case you didn't know, fracking involves using massive amounts of chemically treated water to tap into underground rock deposits, which are rich with natural gas. Although there has been research into the safety of this process, many people, like Ono, are concerned about the chemicals involved in the process and the ... Read More
We're loving the fashions in these 1970s-era pictures of students at Brooklyn's Saint Joseph's College, which Flavorpill posted recently.      Many of the styles look pretty similar to the ones ladies are sporting today, like the large black-rimmed glasses, pea coats, button downs, and belted waists.  In fact, there are probably awesomely stylish girls dressed like this walking around Brooklyn right now.      There are also ...

    Have you ever wanted to try your hand (er, feet) at roller derby?

  Dear Style.com editors, I recently had the pleasure of reading your pre-Fashion Week slideshow. Wedged between "Is There Life After J. Crew?" and "Are You Sick of Prints Yet?", I came across a story titled "Is Lesbian Chic Here to Stay?". It was a definite eye-opener. Here I was, so focused on trivial matters like securing the freedom to marry, that I failed to realize that I am currently a fashion trend. Previously, I was under the impression that I became ...

  The GOP base is in favor of a constitutional amendment that would prohibit abortion even in cases of rape and incest, but Mitt Romney is in favor of allowing those exceptions (which is at least a step closer to moderate and/or sane). Watch Samantha Bee interview GOP delegates about how they feel about Romney’s position, and see that they do believe in the right to choose, after all. Romney’s right that is, not women’s. ...

  Project Runway contestants are famously petulant – a montage of their eye rolls would probably be longer than a regular episode – but last week’s tantrum by contestant Ven Budhu sparked outrage when he brought his plus-size model to tears. For the “L'Oreal Paris Makeover My Friend Challenge,” contestants had to dress non-models, a challenge that always provokes groans from the designers, who are more accustomed to standard model-size proportions. ...

  Dear Roseanne, I’m in my mid-20s and will soon be getting a divorce from my high school sweetheart (we’ve been together a total of 10 years). While we may no longer be partners, we’re still friends. My family is very small and I’m close to his parents; I consider them to be family. It’s hard enough to see my relationship end, but losing them too would make things even harder. Is it possible to continue talking to them? My ex ... Read More
Technically I am not the target audience for the “Smart Girls” YouTube series since I'm technically all grown up (Whaaat? When did that happen? Are you sure? Is this forever? It just keeps happening?). Still, not being in middle or high school has not stopped me from becoming a big fan of Smart Girls. Amy Poehler's  most recent video, part of the “Ask Amy” subsection of “Smart Girls,” tackles sororal relationships ... Read More
What’s a dad to do when his five-year-old son has an affinity for adorable pink dresses? While some God-fearin’ men call for beating their “effeminate” sons (we’re looking at you, Pastor Sean Harris), Nils Pickert took a much different approach.   According to Gawker, the German dad started a father-son “skirt and dress day” tradition, proudly walking through their conservative South German village donning ...

Retail giant Urban Outfitters is under fire (again) for shirts that glorify drinking. Let’s ignore the fact that: 1. These shirts are dumb, and 2. These shirts are stupid, and also 3. These shirts are not clever, and pay attention to the fact that the majority of Urban Outfitters shoppers are 18-24. Ruh-oh. Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) have responded to the shirts, claiming that they are not acceptable for children under the age of 21. Oh, Urban ... Read More
