Coming of age, regardless of sexual orientation, is a mess. It’s like an awkward pubescent choose-your-own-adventure book that you are constantly cheating at, reading ahead or skipping back, to try and reach some kind of conclusion in the least traumatizing way. You string together little landmarks in your life, some horrifying and some empowering, toREAD MORE »

This week is Trans Awareness Week, an event to raise awareness and visibility of transgender and gender nonconforming people leading to today, November 20, the Transgender Day of Remembrance.

When I was 13, I decided to become a vegetarian until I realized I loved shrimp cocktail too much, so I became a pescatarian instead.

This weekend, $69.2 million worth of people (including me) saw “Pitch Perfect 2.” I love the franchise and I feel obligated to support my sort of doppelganger, Anna Kendrick, even though every scene where she kisses that dude makes me feel weirdly uncomfortable. As one friend puts it, “Every time Anna Kendrick kisses a man,… READ MORE »

A couple weeks ago, some guy tweeted at Janelle Monae telling her to be sexier and to not dress so androgynously. What resulted was one of the most perfect and succinct clapbacks: “Sit down,” Monae tweeted back. “I’m not for male consumption.” I feel this, we all feel this.
