Public marriage proposals. Sure, your flashmob is adorable (I guess), but public humiliation is not the greatest way to say “Let’s spend our lives together.” Also, there’s no way someone can say no in front of 200 people, so it seems kind of unfair. And ok FINE I might have teared up a little tiny [...]...read more
Short skirts will get you raped. Also shorts. Also just leaving your house, so stop doing that. I’m just trying to help.
Your skirt shorts are going to get you raped. That’s the message NYPD officers are sending to women in Park Slope, Brooklyn: Earlier this evening, at around 7:30 p.m., I was on my way home from the gym, keys in hand, not talking on my cell phone, very aware of my surroundings. I passed a [...]...read more
I’ve written often about how it is we have to reach hard in the direction of the lives we want, even if it’s difficult to do so. I’ve advised people to set healthy boundaries and communicate mindfully and take risks and work hard on what actually matters and confront contradictory truths and trust the inner [...]...read more

Not only was he a high school teacher before he rocketed to fame as an actor, but you won’t believe the job he had during college… He worked at a daycare center! Working with children and teens meant [...]...read more
Surgically altering your labia: DO NOT DO, unless there is some actual medical reason. Also ohmygod forget anyone who tells you your labia are too large or that virginal vulvas look one way and whore’s vulvas look another. They all look really different, I think! But also kind of the same! Also if someone is [...]...read more
When it comes to baby-making, there are two Americas: Low-income America, where women have high rates of unplanned pregnancy, and high-income America, where women aren’t having kids at all, even if they want them. You hear about the “haves” versus the “have-nots,” but not so much about the “have-one-or-nones” versus the “have-a-fews.” This, though, is [...]...read more
