Following a federal judge’s decision overruling the state’s ban on gay marriage, over a half a dozen anti-gay bills have been proposed by members of Oklahoma’s state legislature.
Three of these bills were proposed by Rep. Sally Kern, who once described homosexuality as being “more dangerous” than terrorism. Let’s take a look at them, shall we? Keep reading »
It’s not everyone who can watch a horror thriller, point at the villain and say, “Hey, that’s me!” But you can if you have borderline personality disorder – that’s the condition that Hollywood loves to scare the shit out of men with in movies like ”Fatal Attraction.” Any movie of that “woman seems OK at first, turns out to be an obsessive psycho!” genre is actually portraying someone with BPD. Since pop culture treats these BPD sufferers (and no, they’re not all women) as a walking Worst Case Scenario, we thought we’d sit down with one and see what it’s like to live with it.

The world has Khloe Kardashian to thank for sharing this vintage infomercial footage, featuring our favorite Jenners attempting to sell us the “Power Walk Plus” treadmill. Sigh, what a dynamic duo these two once were. In the words of Bruce, “stay nice and erect”! [Cosmopolitan]
Because I am indecisive, or because I have weird issues regarding permanence and commitment, selecting a color at the nail salon takes me longer than the average bear. I usually go in with a very specific idea of what I’m going to try to convey with my hands for the next week. “Perhaps I’ll buck convention and get this bright neon, even though it’s the dead of winter!” I tell myself. “Is this sheer nude too ‘I’m-getting-married-next-week’ and not enough ‘off-duty Rihanna’?” I’ll ask. I am overwhelmed by finishes. I spend minutes holding bottles of polish up to the weird light, turning them to see how they do or don’t sparkle, trying to envision how I’ll integrate them into my wardrobe that is full of mostly black with some stripes. “This is so important! I can’t make a wrong choice!” Well. Nail polish comes off in the blink of an eye so you can change every single day if you want. But, if you’re like me, and are stymied by the various shades and kinds of nail polish, this primer is for you. Keep reading »
Nineteen-month-old North West is best pals with Ciara and Future’s eight-month-old son, Future Jr., and it’s precious. Ciara told E! News that the two babies have had lots of play dates: “They have had fun times together. I just want to make sure he’s a gentleman and good to the ladies…We have the cutest pictures of them together.” Does this mean that Kim and Ciara are actually the true BFFs here and schedule these play dates so the two of them can hang out? Are North and Future going to feel ultra pressure to get married someday from like, the entire viewership of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians”? I’m just glad North gets to hang out with other babies, because I sometimes get the impression she spends her days sequestered on the top floor of a Kardashian castle, surrounded by Kim’s pristine neutral-colored decor, toddling around on a fluffy white rug and playing only with Mason and Penelope Disick. Even children whose parents deem them royalty need friends! Clearly Kimye intends for North to someday take over the world, and like any leader, she will need a small army of infant BFFs (or in this case, potential future hubbies) to do so! By the time these kids are ten, they’ll be more powerful than all of us grown-up plebs combined. [Cosmopolitan; E!] [Images via Instagram]
Have you seen the new Similac Formula ad? You must have, it’s everywhere. All up in my Facebook and Twitter feeds, with everyone posting it along with a “Hell, yeah!” or some other affirming shout out.
The video takes on the “Mommy Wars,” pitting all the different stereotypical parenting ideologies against each other. We’ve got the formula feeders and the breastfeeders, the working moms and the stay-at-home moms, the babywears and the stroller users. The ad even happens to toss in a group of dads for good measure. All these groups meet up in the park and sling a bunch of tired old one-liners at each other in a sad attempt to throw shade. Keep reading »
