rape jokes
I am very careful about telling people what they should write or how they should express themselves, but I truly hate a lot of the things that have been directed at Lindy.

If the entire notion of women as the fairer sex and the "prettier" gender disappeared, thus allowing us to be ugly all the time or some of the time without cultural shaming/pity/donning the cloak of invisibility, what would it be like?

You're supposed to suck it up and take another 7-piece bar toolkit before you dare to just ask for cash to help with a nice honeymoon, a house down-payment, a new car, or a set of freaking tires.

Let us finally retire this idea that women just aren't as visual as men and don't care about looks as much. We do! We do! We just haven't historically and culturally had the same freedom to be as shallow.

I'm talking about women's web sites tonight with some women's web site-ers. What should I say?

Witches are having a pop culture moment, says everyone in the universe.

Unlike texts, it’s easy to glean emotion from a person's voice and any mistakes or mispronunciations are impossible to erase.

I'd buttoned the shirt up, zipped the back of the skirt, and turned to face myself in the mirror, I recoiled, thinking, "You are too old for this outfit."

Because I am a helpful person who wants nothing more out of this life than to help you, I've put together some summaries for the classic works of literature that are most likely to come up at a parties, in relationships, at the bus stop or wherever it is that you lie about books.

beauty
If I want to feel glam as hell while covered in dust bunnies and poop-water, I'm damn well gonna do it. And it won't be because the patriarchy tells me it's the sexy thing to do.

I don't think I had a stitch of clothing on the upper portion of my body for the first few weeks that I was home from the hospital. It also happened to be the time when we had a never-ending flow of company. I did not give a shit.

Women aren't the only ones driven to act unfavorably by hormone fluctuations. Imagine the massive disorder diagnosis upswing if only testosterone poisoning were A Thing. Every time a guy punches a wall because he missed a layup? Road rage, chair throwings, gang skirmishes, fraternity hazing gone tragic? Every war, ever?
comedy
Internet bro thinks he's a comedian, says something dumb, gets indignant when people react to it. Then Patton Oswalt, a comedian I adore, respect, and procured my first fake ID to see perform, retweeted him.

There is nothing people like more than reading obviously fabricated bullshit about a fat person attempting to travel from place to place on a plane.

Dreams about your teeth falling out imply that you feel ugly, embarrassed, or a general lack of agency. I had this dream at least once a week after I graduated from college.
