Grilled Cheese

7 Rules Of Engagement For A Friendship Breakup

friendship fight 081914

Not all friendships work out. We all can’t be the sisterhood of the traveling pants, okay? Sometimes somebody (with bad taste) just decides you suck. If you’re fortunate, a friendship fizzles out slowly and imperceptibly, without any awkward requests to get that cardigan back. If you’re not-so-fortunate, your friendship is going to end in either one or a series of small confrontations. We can’t avoid breaking up with our friends or getting friend-dumped. But we can apply some rules of engagement so it’s not a complete and utter shitshow, like many a romantic breakup.

Allow me to add an honorary attachment to the Girl Code (although this certainly applies to male friends, too):

You might say that the maxi dress is just a glorified muu muu. And to that we say: okay, you are right. But what of it? Keeping up with fashion puts so many demands on women. Can’t we just have this one thing that’s easy, and most importantly, comfortable?

summer sucks

We hate to be the ones to say it, but someone has to — sometimes summer can actually suck. Sure, it’s the picture of bliss during those first few weeks of June when you’re wearing a new sundress and the weather is perfect. But that novelty wears off around the sixth week of being perpetually sweaty, stubbly, mosquito-bitten and sunburnt. And you can only put off those invitations to go camping with your brother-in-law so many times. What part of “I’m not an outdoorsy person” does he not understand?!

After the jump, here’s 50 things about summer that actually suck.  Is it September yet? Keep reading »

Nerd Girl Porn: Ethan Hawke & 10 Other Men Who Are Feminists

What was Pat Robertson’s famous quote about feminists again? Ah yes, feminism “encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.” Sheesh, who wants to be associated with that?

Understandably, if “feminist” is a dirty word for some women, identifying yourself as one can be downright scary for some dudes. But even in the face of ignorance regarding what feminists actually believe — that men and women are equal and thus should be paid the same, educated the same, have equal access to health care, and get equal structural support from society — some men are not afraid to fly their feminist flag.

Take Ethan Hawke, for example. In one of those silly “25 Things You Don’t Know About Me” puff pieces in US Weekly, Hawke very simply stated as fact #8, “I am a feminist.” So easy, so simple. That didn’t hurt, right?

After the jump, here are 10 other dudes who are not afraid to use the F-word…
