Chelsea Clinton is one of the classiest young ladies I can think of. Also, she’s awesome. Not just because she’s a Clinton Foundation leader or a board member for Common Sense Media,  but because she loves a good book—especially one with a strong, intelligent female leading by example.  In her Our Friends’ Favorites segment, she dropped some literary names that made me love her a whole bunch: Ramona Quimby, Meg Murray, Claudia ...

I grew up in a very conservative home—so conservative we didn’t have regular playing cards till I was a teenager. No joke. We played Rook, and we used Rook cards.  It wasn’t till college that I owned my own deck of playing cards. I know. Wow. Yeah. I have some catching up to do. Also, there’s a lot I need to learn about awesome women in music (if I didn’t have playing cards, you know I didn’t listen to Joan Jett. Yes, I ... Read More
The gaming company is in an uproar because of, here’s a shocker, a woman.  Are you tired of this? I am. I am so, SO tired of the gaming community hating women. It’s old. Find something legit to complain about.  According to the Atlantic Wire, Julie Larson-Green is now the head of Xbox. You go, girl! I imagine she knew that taking this position would cause a lot of…talk. Let’s call it that. Larson-Green has had 19 years of ... Read More
Marie Myung-Ok Lee knows how to write about shit. Of course, in her op-ed piece for the New York Times, she’s not just casually talking about poop: she’s discussing a medical procedure that profoundly improved (and possibly saved) her friend’s life. Lee donated her stool to her Gene (not his real name). Yes, you read that correctly. Her stool. Gene had been suffering from ulcerative colitis—and when I say suffering, I mean it: a colon ...

  Woah, Nellie! We’re in the future! A few years ago I discovered 3D printing - some friends of mine got into it, printing their own jar lids, toys, bolts, and even their own parts to build their own printer. But personally, I think new inventions gain their validity when they can be used to better the world. Like when they can print a new foot for a one-footed duck. Meet Buttercup, a young, fluffy duck who was born with a backward foot. He had immense ... Read More
  One thing I love about living in NYC is that I don't have a car. I buy my metro card each month and that's it! No gas, insurance, or maintenance fees. But ohhh buddy, when I did have to take my car to get worked, it sucked. Not only was it expensive and time-consuming, but I had to deal with a lot of jargon I didn't understand. Yes, my dad taught me how to check all the fluids and air pressure and spark plugs (more than some people know, I realize), but I ... Read More
Hailing from New Zealand, producer/songwriter/singer Janine creates music designed to take you through her narrative on her Dark Mind EP. In the five tracks, Janine seems to switch between two sides of melancholy with her originality and her vocals. While “Hold Me” and “Bullets” sound like tracks I’ve heard before, “Let It Run,” “Little Bit,” and “Dark Mind” are surprising and ones I’ll be ... Read More
Trigger warning: descriptions of violence towards women, including body mutilation. I was caught completely off-guard when reading the New Internationalist’s article about breast ironing. Haven’t heard of it? Neither had I, and I consider myself somewhat educated about various forms of violence towards women. Breast ironing is as horrible as it sounds, but throughout Cameroon it is a common practice. When a young girl’s breasts begin developing, a ... Read More
Jinan Younis is my new hero. At just 17, she started a feminist society at her school. She has since dealt with the reality that those who are vocally feminist are often met with violent displays of abuse and sexist sentiments. According to her well-written blog post on the Guardian, Younis decided to start the society after a confrontation she and some girlfriends had on a school trip. “A group of men in a car started wolf-whistling and shouting sexual ...

Thank you, internet gods! What, I ask you, is better than cat videos? (Yes, I know: good sex, BUST magazine, coffee.) And what if someone, some genius, were to combine all the best cat videos from one month into a convenient video you could have on repeat all day? Thank you, mother Russia! Not only do you have a theatre with cat performers (check out MCAT here), you give us our cat fix of the month. While there's no way they could capture all of the cats of May, ... Read More
