Today is Friday the 13th, and you might be on edge-- if you believe in that sort of thing, anyway. Images of doom and gloom and evocations of supernatural occurrences amused us as kids: black cats, broken mirrors, indoor umbrella use, and under-ladder walkways, etc...But for some, those unlucky symbols still mean something. This button is for those who intently follow those customs. The Make Everything OK button is a tool to calm the user. After pressing it, a progress bar manifests itself, illustrating the idea...
In the biggest "Wait...what?" of the past 15 minutes, the rapper 2 Chainz has written a cookbook oh-so-cleverly titled #MEAL TIME. The cookbook pairs hearty southern-style dishes with your favorite 2 Chainz songs. I know, it doesn't really make sense...but it looks TASTY!!! Normally, I would be ranting about the absurdity of a book instructing me to "Put on my Versace apron" as the first step to making Teriyaki Salmon, but look at this picture: YUM. Now, under the pretense of irony, I will probably read the cookbook...
Menstrupedia is a self-defined "friendly guide to periods which helps girls and women to stay healthy and active during their periods." That description couldn't be any more perfect! The website is simple yet incredibly informative; it treats the subject of menstruation both frankly and warmly.

The article came as a response to Slate Magazine's piece "The Patriarchy is Dead" (subtitle: Feminists, accept it.) (sub-subtitle: ugh, gross.) Check out a few of the things New York Magazine says they will miss the most about the dead-and-buried patriarchal structure: 1. The 200 abortion restrictions passed since 2011, closing 58 (or roughly 1 in 10) clinics. 3. “Bikini bodies”; “baby bump...
Fix the Family, a Catholic centered lifestyle blog, has never been known for their feminist ideals. They preach traditional gender roles to the nth degree: the man is the provider and head of household, while the woman cooks, cleans, cares for the children, and submits to her husband. But even when you know not to take the things a website says too seriously, sometimes they go ahead and post something so archaic and misguided that you can’t help but feel the feminist...
