“Jane The Virgin” Handles Unplanned Pregnancy With Humor, Respect & Realism

When I was very young — eight, maybe — I remember walking out the back door of my family’s house with my mom. I had probably just asked for a cookie or something, and my mom’s response was this: “You know, if you keep eating sweets so much, people are going to think you’ll be an alcoholic one day.”

She contends this never happened, but I remember it clear as day. That was when I decided not to drink. It seemed expedient: I could keep eating sweets, and it wouldn’t matter what people thought about my future drinking habits, because I’d know that I wasn’t going to drink and therefore wasn’t going to become an alcoholic.

So the scene in the CW’s new show, “Jane the Virgin” (which premiered on Monday night), in which the heroine’s grandmother tells a pre-adolescent Jane not to lose her virginity, speaks to me. I know that feeling. That is Catholic guilt. Apparently, I don’t even know the half of it — my mom is good at guilt-tripping, but my aunt tells me that my grandmother’s ability to discipline via shame was downright masterful. In fact, my mother even harnessed some residual power from her mother’s guilt-tripping expertise by telling me a few times over my childhood, “Your grandmother would be so disappointed.” Keep reading »

Taylor Swift’s New Single Laments Unstable Relationships (And Harry Styles)

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift’s new single “Out Of The Woods” is reportedly about her relationship with Harry Styles, but it’s also about every other wishy-washy guy we’ve ever dated. She told “Good Morning America” that the relationship in this song “was a relationship where I was kind of living day to day, wondering where it was going, if it was going to go anywhere, if it was going to end the next day. It was a relationship where you, kind of, never feel like you’re standing on solid ground.” Bleakly relatable, right? She added that the song “stresses that even if a relationship is breakable and fragile and full of anxiety, it doesn’t mean that it isn’t worthwhile, exciting, beautiful, and all the things that we look for.” Well, that’s not exactly untrue. The song was co-written by Jack Antonoff and employs a drum machine instead of her usual guitar strumming, because apparently Taylor’s feeling extra adventurous these days. You can get the song on iTunes here. The full album drops on October 27! [BuzzFeed]

7 Reasons I'm Already Totally Obsessed With "The Affair"

I’ve been seeing ads for Showtime’s “The Affair” for months now, so there was a lot of build up to last night’s series premiere, and I was expecting to be disappointed as a result. Hardly.

Kristen Stewart Thinks It’s ‘Ridiculous’ To ‘Say You’re Not A Feminist’

Kristen Stewart

Another name can be added to the growing list of celebrity feminists– and this one comes with some great commentary about gender equality on the big screen. In an Oct. 11 interview with The Daily Beast‘s Marlow Stern, Kristen Stewart talked about the rarity of strong and complex female protagonists in film and the double standards experienced by many women in Hollywood.

While she admitted she doesn’t see herself as the type of person to “stand up and affect change” when it comes to talking about issues in the news, Stewart did make some great points about why many women are rejecting the feminist label, telling Stern, “It’s a really ridiculous thing to say you’re not a feminist.” Read more on Huffington Post Women…
