The Guinea Pig Olympics Are Almost As Riveting As The Real Thing

Tonight, the Olympics Opening Ceremony will kick off two weeks of elite competition from the most incredible athletes in the world. But amidst all the glitz, glory, and excitement, let’s not forget about the guinea pig athletes who have been training just as hard. Want proof? Check out these pictures from the amazing 2012 Guinea Pig Games calendar, which imagines the squeaky pets competing in a range of Olympic events from track and field to show jumping (trust me, your life is not complete until you’ve seen a guinea pig riding a horse). Click on the gallery above to check ‘em out! [Stylist UK]

Style Stealer: Cate Blanchett’s Slouchy Shorts And Mad Swagger

OK, to be honest, I don’t know how to steal Cate Blanchett’s swagger. It might come from being ethereally beautiful, or maybe it’s some kind of innate Aussie confidence, or maybe starring in “The Lord of the Rings” imparts a person with a badass attitude that lasts a lifetime. Whatever it is, Ms. Blanchett walks down the street with more swag than P. Diddy and Queen Elizabeth combined. While we might not be able to replicate that, we can totally steal her cool, slouchy style. Shopping details after the jump! Keep reading »

My Transition Story
What it's like to transition from female to male. Read More »

“I’m very early on in my transition – I still blur a line – but I know the changes are going to be coming, and I fear how [my wife] is going to interpret them and whether that will affect if she’s physically attracted to me is terrifying. But ideally you marry someone because you hope that they’re your soulmate, and that’s something that’s beyond gender.”

– Laura Jane Grace, lead singer of punk rock band Against Me!, who has been taking hormone replacement therapy for almost two months and is preparing to undergo gender reassignment surgery to transition from male to female. Since divulging her lifelong secret to Rolling Stone back in May, Grace has been met with positivity and support from her bandmates, fans, and most of her family, although her father has effectively severed ties. Grace’s wife Heather remains by her side. We wish Laura Jane the best as she continues her journey. [The Guardian]

If anyone in the world could pull off a skintight leopard-print suit, it’s Gwen Stefani. That being said, I would have loved to see this suit with a sexy black tank top under the jacket instead of the matching shirt. As much as I love the silhouette, it’s a little too reminiscent of a “sexy leopard” pre-packaged Halloween costume. What do you think? Is Gwen’s outfit totally fierce or does it fall flat?

Nike Debuts Rainbow Pride Shoes And We’re Obsessed

Check out these awesome sneakers Nike just rolled out as part of its 2012 BE TRUE campaign in support of the LGBT community.

Three different versions of the shoes, along with a BE TRUE hat and t-shirt, are being sold in New York, San Francisco, and Portland to acknowledge those cities as “progressive leaders of LGBT life.” Props to Nike for creating a pair of eye-catching kicks that draw attention to a really important cause.

15 Foods That Make Us Irrationally Angry

So, the other day, this “cucumber sub” popped up on my Pinterest page labeled as the “perfect low carb sandwich” and it made me, like, raging mad. My inner monologue went something like this (in Chris Rock’s voice): “That ain’t no motherfuckin’ sandwich!” I sent the link to Amelia who immediately shared my anger and  responded with, “COME THE FUCK ON.” Soon Ami chimed in that she had similar food rage issues with Kraft Singles, and an Angry Foods slideshow was born. Click through to see 14 other edibles that make us mad…

Style Inspiration: Selina Kyle In “The Dark Knight Rises”

I wasn’t sure about Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman), but after seeing “The Dark Knight Rises” this weekend, I am totally on board.
