There is a strange, pervasive trend in the great content scheme that, for some reason, highlights the reactions of men to things that women experience and go through every single day.

Remember the “fat is not a feeling” hashtag? The phrase has been around for a long time, but it trended as a hashtag last October, when Facebook added “fat” to their “feeling” statuses, complete with a smiling face with implied double-chin and rosy, cherubic cheeks.

I’m not saying I wouldn’t get along with the lady staffers at Buzzfeed, but Buzzfeed clearly does not employ women like my friends, for whom drinking whiskey isn’t this big, crazy, new thing.

I’m not going to lie, male friendship is a mystifying thing to me. Whenever I overhear dude friends having really personal conversations, I feel like I’m hiding behind a bush observing a unicorn. Most of my best friends have been guys, and specifically straight guys, but our friendships have always taken on a different tenor… More »

Buzzfeed Yellow interviewed nine women writers, podcasters, bloggers, comedians, journalists, and artists to talk about their experience with online commenters. I mean, I think we all know where this is going, because if you’re here, you’ve probably read about this in the past. It’s… More »
Get ready to bookmark! Yesterday, in a presentation to advertisers, The Onion’s “Jim Haggerty” (an Onion News Network host played by Brad Holbrook) announced that the company was launching a new site called Clickhole, which will put “content and sponsored posts side by side, with barely any distinction between them.” Clearly a parody of click-baiting, time-sucking websites… More »
BuzzFeed actually ran a “listicle” written anti-abortion group Personhood USA, “8 Outrageous Things Planned Parenthood Was Caught Doing,” which includes items like “Taking money to abort African-American babies.” What the fuck, BuzzFeed? How the hell did this get editorially greenlit? [BuzzFeed]

Look, I probably wouldn’t put my hypothetical infant daughter in a bikini. But I don’t think we need to slut-shame … er, baby-shame? — Jessica Simpson for dressing her infant daughter Maxwell in a yellow crochet bikini.
