The first season of “Friday Night Lights” was sort of like a Rorschach test for its straight, female viewers: do you want a Jason Street, a Tim Riggins, or Matt Saracen type? Knowing whether you gravitate toward the popular guy, the bad boy, or the underdog tells you a lot about yourself. But over the years, the original “FNL” characters moved on.

But cuffed pants also expose the ankles, an area of a man’s leg we usually only see if he is wearing shorts. In eras past, the sight of a woman’s ankle gave men a stir. Are you having a similar experience now that cuffed pants for men are the norm? Are you for or against men cuffing their pants? Keep reading »
I’d like to sincerely apologize to the cute nerd girl intently reading the emo-vampire epic Twilight on the New York City subway: I’m sorry for judging you. This happened about six months ago and I sniffed at you for eagerly devouring a young adult novel about a very special girl and her boyfriend, a really nice monster. Keep reading »
