Designer Ashley Nell Tipton is the first plus sized contestant on Project Runway. That alone is huge. Tipton went on to dominate the competition, making it the first ever plus collection to win in the series. The show has been going on for eleven years but has failed to present more body-positive, inclusive styles during that time. Tipton’s winning collection marks a triumph for plus sized designers and the fashion world at large. Tipton grew up struggling to find clothes in her size…clothes that she actually...

American Girl Magazine has come under fire for publishing a story featuring an 11-year-old girl with two dads. The magazine, targeted at young girls and owned by monolith Mattel, published an article about the charity work done by 11-year-old Amaya and her family. A group claiming to represent 1 million extremely conservative moms is now going off into nonsensical Bible-thumping homophobia, saying that the magazine is "promoting sin."  Really, do we have to talk about this? I don’t know, man. Gay people exist…like, we are here. One...

Jesse Jane McParland, a 9-year-old from Ireland, is making her way across the Internet in this Nov. 4 video of her killing it while performing in a martial arts competition. There is seriously something so refreshing about this girl’s obvious passion for her sport. Around 1:35, when she releases an epic scream followed by an open-fisted punch, you know that there is nothing on this Earth that gives her a feeling quite like when she’s wielding her sword in front of an audience. This is not...

Recently, I’ve become completely obsessed with The Knick. The what, you ask? The Knick is an episodic TV show that’s airing on Cinemax, which explains why you’re probably not watching it (sorry, Cinemax). Luckily for HBO subscribers, the first 10-episode season was briefly available on HBO Go, but it went away as of Oct. 31, so you’ve missed that opportunity. I watched a few episodes on HBO Go before it was cruelly yanked from me, and then actually sprung for the entire season’s rental on Amazon....
