Born and raised in California, Amelia moved to NYC after graduating from the University of California at Santa Cruz. After toiling away at Interview, Rolling Stone and Maxim magazines, she made the move online and has been basking in the harsh glow of her laptop screen ever since. When she's not spending her days editing and writing (about topics as vast as feminism, Ryan Gosling, "Star Trek," and the latest D-list sex tape), Amelia is buying peonies, hanging with her dog Lucca and dreaming about her next vacation.

The universe is trying to tell me to take a breather from dating, I think. This week, the New York Times discovered “ghosting,” i.e. when someone you’ve been dating for months or years just DISAPPEARS on you, not bothering to, you know, break up or offer an explanation. This has happened to me a few…

John Oliver On Trans Rights: “It’s Genuinely Crucial We Get This Right”

Gay marriage may now be legal on a national level, thanks to those activists who brought the issue all the way to the Supreme Court, but discrimination is hardly obsolete in the US of A, especially for an estimated 700,000 transgender Americans.

Channing Tatum Acts Out Imaginary Scenes From “Magic Mike” — Written By Kids

“Magic Mike” (and its sequel “Magic Mike XXL”) is decidedly a movie for horny adults and not children, but the title is a little misleading. So, what happens if you ask a bunch of kids to write scenes for the movie based on the title alone? A lot of pumping, weirdly. But not the dirty kind. Watch above!
