Last week, we covered how to avoid being a bad heartbreaker, so this week we’ll tackle the other side of things. Coincidentally, it’s a side of dating I’m far more familiar with: how to accept being dumped with dignity.
Just as there are myriad ways to screw up breaking someone’s heart, the possibilities for botching a “getting-broken-up-with” are limitless. Here are some behaviors to avoid so you won’t compound your heartache with a total loss of self respect. Keep reading »

It’s shocking, that even in the 21st Century, women can be paid less than men for the same job, but that’s just what was happening at the private Lake Ridge Academy in Cleveland, Ohio. Well, until James Whiteman bravely stood up for equal rights, that is! As the head of the lower school, Mr. Whiteman courageously voiced his concerns over the chauvinist disparity in the salaries between his male and female co-workers. After complaining, he promptly fired. “[Mr. Whiteman] had nothing to gain and everything to lose by standing up for female teachers that were afraid to do it themselves,” Gregory Gordillo, his attorney, told Metro. Yet, after a dozen years of dedicated service, he was kicked to the curb for smack talking the sexist system. But this week, two years after his termination, justice was finally served! A jury awarded the former administrator $950,000 for wrongful termination. Ha! And they thought skimping on their female teachers salaries was saving them money. [Cleveland.com] Keep reading »

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are about as common as people who voted for Barack Obama. Roughly 50% of women have had one — myself included! Sex is dirty in a good way, if you’re doing it right, but sometimes it can be dirty in a bad way. UTIs are caused by bacteria gettin’ all up in your nether-regions and some ladies are particularly prone to them. But the good news is, it can go away almost as quickly as you came! So here’s the 411 on the common crotch conundrum… Keep reading »

From celebs like Drew Barrymore and Melissa Etheridge, to we humble Frisky gals, many people have been speaking out against the handful of discriminatory marriage and adoption laws that passed in states across the country that block homosexuals from having the same rights as their straight counterparts.

Barbie is turning 50 next year (doesn’t she look good for her age?), and her birthday celebration is going to be huge. She’s getting a line of beauty products, collaborating with Vera Wang on a wedding dress and Jeremy Scott on a capsule collection, and getting her own show at New York Fashion Week in February. For the show, 50 designers will produce life-sized outfits inspired by the doll — oh, to be a style icon. We’re curious whether the models who will walk in Barbie’s fashion show will all resemble her. If so, they’re going to have a hard time finding anyone, because even models don’t have her kind of proportions. Check out Barbie’s many, many, many looks over the years, after the jump… Keep reading »
