As annoying as the characterization of women as sex objects in Fifty Shades of Grey may be, perhaps my friends have an excuse for enjoying it. A biological excuse. According to a recent study published in the European Journal of Social Psychology, our brains may recognize men and women differently. Specifically, they register females as body parts more easily than males. It's not just the male brain, either. The study found that when shown photos of average ... Read More
It's easy to be jaded about the level of progressive thought in the world when we live in a country where, even if we are not automatically served or understood, our voices can be heard. Unfortunately, in Ireland, this is not the case. Last week, almost 400 protesters gathered outside government buildings without a single news outlet reporting on it. Perhaps it was because they were protesting Ireland's restrictions on abortion, which limit women to only receiving ... Read More
A couple corners of the internet are up in arms over the blog Skinny Gossip's nasty post about up-and-coming model Kate Upton, known to many as the blonde babe performing the "cat daddy" on Youtube so lusciously that the website actually temporarily removed it for its content. She also recently landed a smoldering spread in GQ. This spread prompted a friend of mine to say that if she opened up a booth where she charged for hugs, the economy would bounce back. With ...

Whether you define the start of summer as the moment it’s finally warm enough to break out your favorite short-shorts (sans tights, of course), the void between the beautiful ending of one school year and the dreaded beginning of another, or the first weekend you and your girls can head to your favorite beach, it’s finally here for many of us, in all of its mercurially sunny splendor (And if you’re one of those sticklers who believes that summer ...

The Disney Diet

BY Intern Christina in Eat Me

When you were a kid, did you ever find yourself looking forward to celery? Probably not, unless your parents did a really great brainwashing job. In that case, more power to them. Now, Disney is trying to step in and do that parent brainwashing job themselves. Or maybe we should call it reverse-brainwashing, in the way of removing all junk food advertisements.   My memories of food from when I was a kid consist of begging my Mom to lay off the healthy stuff. ...

  Interesting news from the North Carolina School of Medicine at Chapel Hill--a study being published in the February issue of Obstetrics and Gynecology by Dr. David Grimes and his team of researchers show that between the years 1998 and 2005, the risk of death associated with live births (full-term pregnancies) was significantly higher than those of documented legal abortions. Though the risk of death is low for both procedures, live births had a rate of ... Read More
No woman wants someone telling her what her vagina should look. That’s why the activist group UK Feminista and performance art group the Muffia—known for wearing nude bodysuits decorated with tufts of pubic hair—are taking to the London Streets tomorrow morning. These women are tired of the porn industry promoting the removal of pubic hair. Let’s just say, bald isn’t always beautiful. These ladies are also railing against the rise in ... Read More
  The very wise Alicia Keys once asked, “Have you ever tried sleeping with a broken heart?” Well a new study says a lot of women have, and it’s not easy. The research, conducted by the American Heart Association, says that women are seven to nine times more likely than men to suffer from Broken Heart Syndrome, which occurs after someone “suffers from a sudden or prolonged stress like an emotional breakup or death.” Though ...

How are you feeling? A recent study revealed that 53 percent of women say their overall health is in poor shape, so it might be safe to assume you're not feeling so hot. A study called A Fragile Nation in Poor Health conducted by the health communications firm TeleVox, recently polled 1,015 American across the country about how they feel about their health.  More than half of the women polled say they feel unhealthy and one in five nationwide say they ...
