If the latest issue of New York Magazine is the big Fall Fashion issue, then why is Lake Bell gracing it in her birthday suit? Does the latest fall trend require me to bare my nipples to the world, too? Correction— I suppose no nipples are necessary. Lake appears to shield those little bits with a false tattoo. Two leaves covering her nipples and a hand delicately placed over her crotch is now the height of haute couture. But seriously, where’s the fashion? Don’t get me wrong, Lake...
Trigger Warning: This post mentions sexual abuse within the prison system. Spoiler Alert! If you're not caught up with the whole season, avert your eyes! It’s safe to say that Netflix's Orange is The New Black has taken over my life. It’s okay; the first step is always admitting you have a problem, and I’m an OITNB addict.

(Not quite a double standard but an issue I, as a woman, have.)  These female comedians have “a boner to pick” with HBO … for not giving us the D. It’s true! For every time we see Hannah Horvath’s tits, or Daenerys Targaryen’s...
    When my mother got engaged in 1979, she and my father decided against a traditional proposal. There was no expensive dinner, no bended knee and no ring. In the wake of second-wave feminism, my mother felt that a ring served as an unfair indicator that she belonged to my father; she would not wear a symbol to ward off other men if my father did not bear a similar marker.  Has culture surrounding engagement rings changed today? In some ways, it hasn’t; typically, men still don't...
