A Hilarious Look Inside The Minds Of Real Women At Work

working-woman-thoughts

A typical day at the office usually involves coffee, important meetings, creative brainstorms, game-faced strategizing, snacks and more coffee, and tons of hard work, right? Sure, of course it does, but not just all of that! From Spanx to poor punctuation in gossip posts, managing procrastination to Miley Cyrus, we’ve got A LOT running through our heads – all day long.

Thus, we here at The Stir thought we’d solve the mystery that is what women are really thinking while we’re in those meetings and cubicles! If you thought everything we muse about in the office was all snoozey business all the time, whoo, are YOU in for a wake-up call! Check it out on The Stir…

An Open Letter To My Pregnant Friends I Refused To Be Happy For

pregnancy-letter

Dear formerly pregnant friends,

I know this is way, way overdue on my part — but I really owe you an apology for how I reacted when you excitedly told me you were going to be a mom. The minute “I’m pregnant!” came out of your mouth, I saw the look of pure joy and elation on your face. But what did I do instead of sharing in that happiness with you? I immediately started ranting and raving about how much your life was going to change — and not necessarily for the better. Read more on The Stir…

15 Badly Needed Dating Sites We’d Love To See

onine-dating-love

For a long time, people who did the online dating thing had few choices where to go and were lumped into enormous groups of people that were basically only broken down by male/female and straight/gay. Now, however, much like cable television, dating sites are starting to take the micro view and appeal to specific subgroups. There’s OurTime for people over 50; ChristianMingle for Christians; JDate for Jewish people; DharmaMatch for Buddhists. And now sites are starting to drill deeper down. There’s AshleyMadison for married people looking for affairs (shame, y’all). Here are 15 types of other dating sites real men and women said they’d like to se on The Stir …

A Major Change In Medicine That Means We Can All Trust Our Doctors More

pharmaceutical-drugs

When you get prescribed a pharmaceutical drug, you generally assume — or at least would hope you can assume — that it’s in your best interest to take it. Because your doctor actually believes the pros outweigh the cons for your particular health situation … and that he has no ulterior motives (like a financial kickback) for prescribing the drug. Sadly, think again. Doctors being paid by pharmaceutical companies for hawking their drugs and pharmaceutical reps being paid based on how many prescriptions doctors write for drugs has been a longtime common practice … Yup, it’s just plain sick.

School Named For KKK Grand Wizard Gets Much-Needed New Name

kkk-grand-master

Nathan B. Forrest High School in Jacksonville, Florida is largely African American and Forrest’s history is dubious, indeed. He was a slave trader, and historical reports and some say he gave the order to kill 300 captured black Union soldiers. He was also an honorary member of the KKK. None of these are good things, and honestly, I wouldn’t want to go to a school bearing his name, either. Read more on The Stir …

Best Ever Condom Commercial Banned For Being Too Raunchy

try-condom-commercial

For an advertisement meant to promote safe sex — arguably one of the greatest ways a person can pass time on a random Monday night — you’ve got to admit condom commercials are usually pretty stale. You can count on no hands the number of times you actually sort-of see folks doing the deed while we imagine they’re wearing whatever condom is being promoted, and it sometimes seems like the company does everything it can to avoid even mentioning the S-word.

Leave it to a bunch of sexy, easygoing Australians to make the absolute best condom commercial you’ll see — and then blame another group of Aussie partypoopers for banning it. Boooo! Watch the banned commercial on The Stir…
