All The Places Bigfoot Should Go Now That He’s Real

My college boyfriend believed in Bigfoot all along. He didn't need scientists' confirmation or Sasquatch DNA to prove it. But now it looks like we're about to get definitive proof of the creature's existence (probably?). So … Bigfoot, you can stop hiding out in random forests for fear of being slain in the name of…

Pediatricians Urged To Discuss, Prescribe Emergency Contraception To Teens

Pediatricians should discuss emergency contraception with their teenaged patients and even write advance prescriptions, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended earlier this week. The morning-after pill should be taken 120 hours after unprotected sex, but is more effective the sooner it is taken. If taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex, Plan B is almost…

Beauty Cues: Emily Blunt’s Simple Shimmery Makeup

How do you like Emily Blunt's new lighter hair? I think it looks gorgeous ― I recall reading somewhere that she's actually a natural blonde, so it makes sense that this new shade flatters her coloring so nicely. This makeup is so simple and pretty, but the softly gilded touch around her eyes make…

The 9 Most Misspelled Celebrity Names

You know those words that seem impossible to spell right on the first try, but are nonetheless part of everyday language? "Apparent." "Vacuum." Even "misspell" is a tough one. What if your name was as easy to misspell as, well, "misspell"? For some unlucky celebrities (and lucky people who write about them), typos in their…

Mommie Dearest: Why Toy Catalogs Make Me Roll My Eyes

Mommie Dearest is The Frisky's new biweekly column about being a mama. I have a love/hate relationship with catalogs. There are some that I love to flip through and pretend that I have the money to burn. Who wouldn't want her own cotton candy machine, night vision goggles, or handcrafted teak patio furniture? (I don’t…

America, This Is Your New Viral Video

There are a lot of theories going around the Interwebs right now about who Ashli Gay really is, and if that's her mother sitting behind her, revealing her bra. This video was apparently made in response to a woman named Ellie King, who accused Ashli of being fake, which is why, we suppose, she spend…

True Story: Everything You Need To Know About Domestic Violence — From A Prosecutor

Two weeks ago, I wrote an essay about how I witnessed a man committing domestic violence against a woman outside my apartment.

Girl Talk: The Virtue Of Eating Dessert With Every Meal

Last thing about Paris and then I'll shut up. I promise. Topic du jour: dessert. My trip made me realize that, for me, it is essential to have dessert with every meal. This is not based on anything scientific whatsoever, just one sugar lover's humble opinion after indulging in dessert with every meal for a…

Well Played: Malin Akerman’s Hip Mama Look

Malin Akerman is kind of the poor man's Anna Faris to me. That sounds cruel, but I just mean that she's like, another funny blonde, though she hasn't yet really ascended to movie-carrying star like Faris has. Here she is with husband and mohawk aficionado Roberto Zincone, gracefully following all of the rules to…

All The Reason You’ll Need To Hold Off On Those Butt Implants (NSFW)

Found on YouTube: (almost as disturbing as that fake doctor who injected people with cement and superglue) a possibly real video of a woman with butt implants gone terribly wrong. Yeah, I don't think any implant is supposed to be able to do a somersault in your body. That's worrisome. The…

Romney Face-Tattoo Guy Changes His Mind

If you ask us, it seems a little two-faced. Just two weeks after he said he had no regrets about his Mitt Romney face tattoo, Eric Hartsburg has decided to accept an offer to have it removed for free, reports Politico. What's behind the change of heart? He apparently didn't like Romney's post-election "gifts" comment, and says the tat…

Will.i.am And Britney Spears Team Up To “Scream & Shout”

I am an unapologetic Britney Spears superfan, so I welcome every musical endeavor of hers with open arms, even if they include collaborations with lame dorks like Will.i.am from the Black Eyed Peas. Brit and Will.i.am debuted the video for their single "Scream & Shout" last night, and I have so many feelings about it.

The Lazy Girl’s PMS Survival Guide

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is a combination of physical and emotional symptoms including bloating, cramps, headache, and mood swings that occurs consistently during the ten days prior to the start of menstrual flow and vanishes either shortly before or shortly thereafter.  In other words, it’s what I like to call Hell Week, and that’s a drastic…

Tavi Gevinson, On Being Your Own Kind Of Feminist

"When I started Rookie, there were a lot of girls like me who had fashion blogs and loved getting dressed up and thinking about appearance, not in a stressful women’s magazine way, but in a creative way.
