If you've been to this week's Open Thread, you already know that we welcomed an exciting new managing editor, Eugenia.
Among Eugenia's many important managerial responsibilities: trying to get our contributing editors to write about the topics Emily and Lesley, in all their wisdom, want them to write about. This is her first week, though, so a relatively high (and lucky!) number of stories went unwritten-about on xoJane. Such as:
- Would you eat a burger that's made to taste like human flesh? [Huffington Post]
- The latest weight-loss app is for kids. [The Frisky]
- Politico says the only way the Secret Service will get better is if someone assassinates the President. [Gawker]
- Is forcing fraternities to go co-ed a good idea? [New Hampshire Public Radio]
- The NFL's breast-cancer campaign is perpetuating a potentially dangerous myth. [Jezebel]
- How using Facebook in your 30s is different than using it in your 20s. [Bustle]
- Sexism goes both ways in commercials. [Cracked]
- Taylor Swift is the latest person to make a mullet look like a really good haircut idea. [Refinery29]
- The Florida GOP uses a wedding dress metaphor for the gubernatorial candidates. [Daily Dot]
- The best reason we've ever seen for not picking hair off the carpet and eating it. [Huffington Post]
- A few ideas for getting over rejection. [Hello Giggles]
So if you want to write about these subjects or -- much better as these are a bit dated now -- anything else for xoJane, try sending a pitch to the new girl at, yep, Eugenia@xoJane.com.
