Jane Fonda in an emerald jumper. Jenny Lewis in her killer Lisa Frank-esque get-up. Read More

Not to discredit Graham’s major accomplishment. Read More
One random Wednesday night, on a campus well-known for its progressive lean, a friend wonders aloud to me if that cute boy in her class with the nail polish is gay or not. He doesn’t have to be, she says. I shrug and ask her if she’d go out with him if he were interested. “ Of course,” she replies. “He’s funny. And smart. And that color looks good on him." The times, they are a’changin’—for men and women. Read More
