You might think that since scientists have been working on a male birth control option for ages, there would be a solution by now. Unfortunately, since the creation of the birth control pill (and since the beginning of time), the responsibility onus has largely fallen on women. Now, new trials in Indonesia suggest we might have a male birth control pill in the near future. That’s right: boys and men, on the pill. This could be a reality very soon. For Indonesia at least.

As a kid, Lily Mandelbaum struggled with her weight—and with self-acceptance. But along with her mother, stylist Elisa Goodkind, she’s saying to anyone ready to listen: Enough is enough.  In case you haven’t heard (and if you haven’t, the time has come), this mother-daughter team behind body image acceptance site StyleLikeU recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to turn their viral video project, I Am What’s Underneath, into a feature-length documentary.

  Raise your hand if you’re a fan of the occasional Throwback Thursday ‘gram? I know I’ve definitely posted a 20+ year old photo of little ol’ me rocking some serious 90’s swag: leggings, jean jacket, tattoo necklace, an adorable pair of baby Docs. It’s fun to reminisce not only about the trends of the era, but your own blossoming personal style from toddler-hood to preteen to high school rebel-mom-stop-taking-my-photo-I-hate-you-ugh. Whether adorably mismatched or surprisingly slick, these little gems of childhood creativity are pretty cool to...
