  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 says he’s OK with it. What...

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 (Check it below). Her advice, although simple, is undeniably sound. Plus, I’m pretty sure I would...

Crickets. They’re all that can be heard above the swish of bathwater as Little Birds opens, and the sound is an apt introduction to the sleepy Salton Sea, CA, town where the film begins. For a couple of restless 15-year-old locals, Lily (Juno Temple) and Alison (Kay Panabaker), the depressing surroundings are just too much to bear. So when a chance encounter with some street kids en route to L.A. offers them a way out, they take it. Despite the sweeping vistas of seascapes and weeds...

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 –you guessed it–dresses and skirts. "I didn't want to talk my son into not wearing dresses and skirts," Pickert explained to German feminist magazine EMMA....

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 Outfitters. Will you ever learn? Or maybe you just...
