Lower Abortion Rates By Paying Women To Stay Pregnant? I Think Not.

Last week, The New York Times uploaded a “Bloggingheads” discussion between Slate writer William Saletan and Beliefnet’s Steve Waldman, on the topic of reducing abortions. The ideas that arise from the discussion are slightly terrifying, and are therefore worthy of more discussion. Keep reading »

Is Height The New Weight?

Lately we’ve been talking a lot about height. Ali has written two pieces in the last few days, about how to amplify your height (if you’re on the shorter side) and the height issues that can come up in relationships. We also posted part of an essay from a woman about being tall and how it impacts her dating life. Many of your comments on these posts had to do with your own insecurities about your height, whether you’re “tall” or “short.” Meanwhile, Meryl Streep, who plays Julia Child in the upcoming film “Julie and Julia,” says about the famous chef’s 6’2 height, “I mean, it’s like having club foot … it was a handicap of sorts, certainly in the world where she was born.” Keep reading »

Quote Of The Day: Sarah Silverman Won’t Make Fat Jokes

“I don’t like fat jokes about women. Men can take it because we live in a society where fat men still deserve love, still can be respected. Fat women are treated (in the white culture, anyway) like s**t, and it bums me out.

Quick Pic: Is Seann William Scott’s Denim Suit Hot Or Not?

We’re not big fans of the denim suit here. But if you are going to rock your own version, it helps to pair it with tattoos and scruffy hair like Seann William Scott did. That way, you’ll look like you belong to a biker gang instead of a chain gang. [NYC, 7/1/09] Keep reading »

Passive Aggressive Behavior And Why It’s OK, Sometimes

Passive aggressive behavior is probably on most people’s list of annoying qualities in another person. Scratch that, passive aggressive behavior usually falls into the category of legit reasons to banish someone for your life. I have never been pro passive aggression, in fact, I get rather peeved when someone pulls the hot/cold routine on me. I think my thoughts on passive aggression and its unfailing ability to make any situation worse is probably shared by most of you. Over the past week or so I have posted on the complexities of friendship, especially girlfriendship, and many of you commented that the tendency for girls to engage in passive aggression was one of the number one reasons you did not pursue female friendships. I was totally on board with this popular sentiment until I realized that not only have I been acting all passive aggressive myself this week, but I was glad I had. Keep reading »

Emma Watson Tells Teen Vogue She’s Not Into The Fame Thing

“Harry Potter” actress Emma Watson, 19, is on the cover of Teen Vogue‘s August issue. She looks all grown up, posing in old school Britastic clothing in the English countryside. Despite being famous since she was 10, Emma isn’t really a limelight lover. She is going to college and plans to do it up normal-person style. She’s majoring in English and will even be living with roommates. We understood why she is not all about being famous after she said so many ‘razzi showed up to her 18th birthday that she couldn’t get out the door. She added, “They laid down on the pavement and took pictures up my skirt.” Ugh, talk about barely legal. Check out some other quotes, after the jump. [Teen Vogue] Keep reading »
