In September of 2010, Tyler Clementi committed suicide by jumping off the George Washington bridge. While no one can know what was going through his mind on the day he killed himself, many vehemently believe that it was the actions of his roommate, Dharun Ravi, that drove him to do so. Yesterday, Dharun was sentenced in a New Jersey supreme court to 30 days in prison for invading his roommate's privacy by using his webcam to expose Tyler having sex with another man in their...
Unfortunately, the world of sports is one that is riddled with sexism - especially the world of my favorite (and the world's favorite) sport, soccer.

In fact, she insists, "It's to raise awareness that's it's legal for woman to be topless anywhere a guy can be without a shirt since 1992 here...
Last week we sadly lost one of the best disco singers ever, Donna Summer, and we want to take a minute to honor this immensely talented lady. She sassily and powerfully sang to us that “she works hard for the money, so you’d better treat her right” and that she was “lookin’ for some hot stuff, baby, this evening," as she kept us dancing the night away.   Not only this, but she also wrote many of her songs, including "I Believe In Jesus," "This Time I...
