In The New York Times’ recent Social Q’s, a New York City mom wrote in about a dilemma facing her daughter and a birthday party. Her daughter was invited to a five-year-old’s superhero themed birthday party, but then she was un-invited. Instead, she was invited to a separate birthday party, which is just for girls. Here’s the question below: We received a "save the date" card for a fifth birthday party for a boy my daughter knows. It was to be a Superhero Soiree. But shortly before the date, we were uninvited.

Amy, Amy, Amy, you can absolutely do no wrong with me. Amy, you’re such a funny woman, you star in the NBC show Parks and Recreation, your Ask Amy webisodes makes me feel like I’m never alone, you’re besties with Tina Fey, you’re writing a book (which is going to be majorly awesome), and now you’re starring in the new Pixar film, Inside Out? Girl, you’re simply THE BEST! This exciting news about the film was released at Disney’s D23, which is basically like Disney’s version of Comic-Con. Read More
  Okay, so Drunk History on Comedy Central is probably my new favorite show. I can’t watch even one segment without laughing to tears. It began as a Funny or Die series, which was created by Jeremy Konner and Derek Waters. What makes Drunk History so funny is the fact that they enlist actors to re-tell historical events, while being incredibly intoxicated. This show is majorly awesome!  Part of the hilarity is that the actors aren’t exactly accurate about the stories they’re telling. Read More
Just 10 hours ago, Beyoncé Knowles debuted (via her Instagram) her new look to the world: a short, blonde pixie cut. I’m really diggin this cut, y’all, 'cause it’s nothing really over the top, but it IS just perfect for her face. I mean, Queen B looks great in anything, and this haircut is super cute! While some fans aren’t as enthusiastic about her cut, and keep referring to Miley Cyrus’s head-turning pixie, I think it looks great on her! The cut happened a mere two days after completing her Mrs. Carter world tour. Read More
It's no surprise these days that families are getting smaller, women are moving up in their careers, and Fox News is crying about "the war on men."

The TIME piece says that todays birthrate in the United States is at an all time low. "From 2007 to 2011, the most recent year for which there's data, the fertility rate declined 9%. Read More
Trigger Warning: This post discusses sexual violence, victim-blaming. Jennifer Stevens, a 10-year armed forces and battalion veteran, was absolutely outraged by this poster in the women’s restroom of the Wright-Patterson Ohio Air Force base. The poster, titled "Avoid Being a Victim," is a guideline for women to avoid/prevent sexual assault. Understandably, it SCREAMS victim-blaming.  The poster instructs soldiers to avoid sexual assault by paying attention to their surroundings, socializing with people who share their values and being prepared to get home.

While Diablo Cody’s known for writing Juno, Jennifer's Body and Young Adult, Paradise is her first feature film that she’s written and directed! The film stars Julianne Hough, in which she transitions from a “good girl” to “bad girl,” after surviving a plane crash.

        If you’ve been binge watching the new Netflix series, Orange is The New Black (if you aren’t you totally should), you’re probably familiar with the show’s super villain, George “Pornstache” Mendez. While he’s known as the cruelest, and most sexually devious corrections officer, Pablo Schreiber actually isn’t like his character. For one thing, his character’s mustache goes a long way. Read More
