There's no doubt that social media and new forms of communication have made a shitload of difference in helping us connect to others. There's even a whole network of mommy bloggers and other forums dedicated to new mothers, but these connections generally can't provide the same support as the people who are close to you. A recent study shows that mothers in urban areas—who tend to be further away from their families and face more economic hardships—have a harder time recovering from postpartum depression compared...

This law gives parents a somewhat “laissez-faire” approach to their child’s gender identity. Most importantly, children born with both male and female characteristics will be able to choose their own gender later in life.

  Remember books?  Before I developed a crippling internet addiction, I was an avid book reader. My trips to Barnes and Nobles actually involved me purchasing something other than a Hazelnut macchiato. It was a magical time.  Most of all because with each page I'd find literary heroines to look up to, sisters that were bold and intriguing.
