American Girl Magazine has come under fire for publishing a story featuring an 11-year-old girl with two dads. The magazine, targeted at young girls and owned by monolith Mattel, published an article about the charity work done by 11-year-old Amaya and her family. A group claiming to represent 1 million extremely conservative moms is now going off into nonsensical Bible-thumping homophobia, saying that the magazine is "promoting sin."  Really, do we have to talk about this? I don’t know, man. Gay people exist…like, we are here. One...
Jesse Jane McParland, a 9-year-old from Ireland, is making her way across the Internet in this Nov. 4 video of her killing it while performing in a martial arts competition.

Recently, I’ve become completely obsessed with The Knick. The what, you ask? The Knick is an episodic TV show that’s airing on Cinemax, which explains why you’re probably not watching it (sorry, Cinemax). Luckily for HBO subscribers, the first 10-episode season was briefly available on HBO Go, but it went away as of Oct. 31, so you’ve missed that opportunity. I watched a few episodes on HBO Go before it was cruelly yanked from me, and then actually sprung for the entire season’s rental on Amazon....
Lisa Vreeland released her second documentary, Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict, last week. In her second film, Vreeland - director of Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel - dives into the complex world of an heiress living in genteel poverty trying to make a name for herself in the topsy-turvy world of modern-art. At the time, no one knew whether to take take Dada, surrealism or abstract expressionism seriously, but Peggy went with her gut and came out on top.
