Girl Talk: My Ex, Who Didn’t Want Kids, Is Having A Baby And My Feelings Are Complicated

Every relationship has its milestones: first kiss, first fuck, finally saying "I love you," moving in together, meeting the parents, going on vacation, etc. But every major breakup has its milestones too, often full of either sadness or relief. Moving out of the place you once shared; unfollowing/unfriending on social media; realizing that his birthday passed and for once, you didn't think about…

Absolute Beginners: A Place For Workout Videos In My Heart

The more I do for Absolute Beginners -- the more I try new things -- the more I have to re-evaluate my past with sports and fitness. This week, for example, I had to admit to myself that actually, my fitness habit didn’t begin with a barbell in 2012, even if that’s when I met…

The Soapbox: How We Talk About Consent Absolutely Matters

How we talk about consent absolutely matters. How we talk about it in private conversations, in academia, in public discourse — all matters. So for ELLE to publish an essay attacking “Yes Means Yes” policies — and during Sexual Assault Awareness Month, no less — is unconscionable even if it is penned by a survivor. The…

Confession: Trevor Noah’s Bad Jokes Annoy Me Less Than Hall Monitors Do

Allow me to preface this by stating that I do not think that Trevor Noah's Twitter jokes were especially hilarious (neither does he), and that--of fucking course--I am not cool with antisemitism or fat shaming or whatever other things. But I feel like I need to say some things here regarding how all of this went…

Girl On Girl: On Tinder & Women Objectifying Other Women

I have 876 matches on Tinder. I love Tinder. I’ve met some of my favorite people via Tinder, but sometimes, Tinder feels cheap. That feeling creeps up on me when it’s late at night and I’ve just swiped left on 20 people. That feeling also creeps up on me when five people send me the…

#Problematic: Country Fans Don’t Have A “Girl Crush,” Madonna Is An A-Hole & Taylor Swift Is A “World Leader”

It’s been a tough week, kids. I’m imagining you sitting in front of an open refrigerator, the buzz of the light dulling your existential thoughts. That seven-minute video of Tom Hanks paying homage to his body of work is playing on your laptop from the other room, for no one in particular. You’re wondering how…

My Secret Shame: That Time I Cheered On A Southwest Plane For A Free Trip To Vegas

My parents love Southwest Airlines. Both of their jobs when I was growing up required heavy midwestern travel (the only thing my parents love more than Southwest Airlines are the many years they lived in the Midwest), and Southwest Airlines, with its lack of baggage fees or assigned seating, and its khaki-clad, perky dad-joke peddling flight attendant…
