Taboo Addictions: 5 Adult Eating Disorders That Go Beyond Anorexia & Bulimia

Eating disorders are often times associated with specific races, age groups, and even career choices…think white teenage actress/models. But the truth is that eating disorders do not discriminate.

Finally! My “Hanger” Problem Explained

I suffer from a condition that I refer to as “hanger.” When I go too long without eating, something happens to me, beyond my control, not unlike Bruce Banner when he turns into the The Hulk. (I had to Google the name of The Hulk’s alter ego, by the way. Don’t mistake me for a…

Last night, I was reading a piece on the blog Thought Catalog in which writer Marie Calloway interviewed two young women about the current state of “radical feminism.” I read it not only because feminism is my beat, but also because the current understanding that I have in my mind about radical feminism is based…

Anal Is The Sex That God Can’t See (NSFW)

“The Loophole” is another brilliant piece of musical comedy from Garfunkel & Oates, the duo that brought you “29/31.” This time, they’ve moved on from single bitterness to Christian girls who stay “virgins” until they’re married but have anal sex instead. Otherwise known as “going to fifth base” or having “the sex that God can’t…

Target And Novo Nordisk Drop Paula Deen

As Paula Deen was dropped by seemingly every company she’s ever been associated with, Novo Nordisk continued to say it would stand by her—but even that relationship appears to have frayed. The diabetes drug maker that partnered with Deen as she announced she had the disease today announced it is suspending the relationship “for now.” A rep tells Eater there is the “option” to resume the partnershi…

Pets Dressed As People Who Look Like Their Pets

Swiss photographer Sebastian Magnani was struck by the way some pet owners managed to look like their pets, and vice versa. Are we drawn to animals that in some way resemble or reflect our inner and outer lives (and if so, what does Colonel Mustard say about me?). Magnani did some swift Photoshopping and created…

Watch A 6-Year-Old Girl Front A Screamo Band On “America’s Got Talent”

Judging by her sweet face, polka dot dress, and pink tights, most people expected six-year-old “America’s Got Talent” contestant Aaralyn to sing a cute version of “Animal Crackers In My Soup,” but that’s not Aaralyn’s music style of choice. When she took the stage, backed by her nine-year-old brother Izzy on the drums, something totally unexpected…

Mommie Dearest: TX State Senator Wendy Davis Shows That For Teen Moms, Anything Is Possible

What do you think about when you hear “teen mom?” Perhaps you think about someone who was arrested for heroin recently, or maybe about someone else who came out with a sex tape (aka made a pornographic movie) with James Deen. Maybe your thoughts immediately went to shameful ad campaigns by Candie’s or New York

The 20 Weirdest Fashion Moments From The Spring 2014 Menswear Collections

Men’s fashion shows don’t have the heightened sense of excitement and titillation around them that women’s collections do. Perhaps that’s because it’s so highly unlikely that a dick will ever accidentally flop out on the runway the way a boob does. Or maybe it’s because it’s less socially acceptable for men to preen and pluck…

An Empowered Woman’s Guide To Eating Lunch Alone (in GIFs)

Ami and I have both experienced our share of tragically lonely lunches. In 5th grade, Ami had to sit alone at lunch because she was the new kid in school and had no friends; in high school, Winona often ate her PB&J in the chemistry room to escape the stress of the mean, crowded hallways.

Emma Watson Lets Her Glorious Freckles Shine On The Cover Of Teen Vogue

I am obsessed with freckles, falling just short of dotting them on myself with tonal eyeliner every day (uh, not like I haven’t entertained the idea, though), so naturally I am all sorts of delighted that they let Emma Watson keep hers on the August cover of Teen Vogue. Cover girls being permitted to show…

Chris O’Dowd Eats A Fly On TV (Well, Sort Of)

As you read this, PETA has a team of experts studying every micro-second of this video to see whether the fly died of natural causes or whether “Bridesmaids” actor Chris O’Dowd murdered the fly in a coldblooded act of dominant species callousness. One thing is for sure: “The Graham Norton Show” needs to buy some…
