Girl Talk: On Being A Slob
My name is Winona and I am a slob. Growing up, my mom affectionately referred to my bedroom as "the pig sty," and rightfully so: the clothing, books, art supplies and cereal bowls that covered the floor would often reach knee-height before I felt the urge to tidy up a bit. At some point my…
Girl Talk: We’re All In This Sand Box Together
My boyfriend and I lay in his childhood bedroom, surrounded by all of his favorite stuff from high school. We were almost 30. "I don't feel the same way about you as you do about me," he said. I rolled over and started to cry silently while staring at his trophy collection. This was our…
Girl Talk: My Newfound Respect For Chivalry
My freshman year of college, I went on a date with a guy to a fancy restaurant in Manhattan. It was the kind of place with a white tablecloth, where a busboy scraped the crumbs off the table with a comb once your plates were removed and the maitre'd pulled out women's chairs for them.
Giada De Laurentiis Is A Traditional Wife
"I think it can be hard for any man to sometimes be upstaged by his wife. So when I'm home, I work very hard to be Todd's wife and Jade's mother. I have no problem going back to those traditional roles. I try to be Giada, the young girl that he met 20 years ago…
Girl Talk: I’m A Bottom
I was at a party a few years ago, where Mikey, one of my gay best friends, and I were having one of our heart-to-hearts. "Devon and I broke up," he announced. "What, why!? You seemed so perfect together," I gasped. "Eh, we were both tops," he sighed.
What Women Sound Like To Men
I'm sure some overly sensitive women will watch this video and cry "sexism," but I think it's kinda funny, if not exactly true-to-life. For one thing, I don't really know anyone who watches "The Biggest Loser." Had the guys been gathered around an episode of "The Bachelor," it would have been a bit more believable.
Dear Wendy: “My Girlfriend’s A Black Belt. Should I Be Worried?”
I have a great new girlfriend who is funny, positive, cute and very sexy. I am so happy with her and I wouldn't want her to change. But there is one issue: she happens to be a black belt martial arts expert and works part time as an instructor in that area. So basically, eve…
Boys’ Clubs Are Back At British Universities — Why?
Most colleges these days have a women's group and lots of colleges have a Women's Studies, or even better, a Gender & Sexuality Studies program. But recently, male students at Oxford University and Manchester University in the U.K. have started their very own "men's groups" to work through their issues with the current state of…
Can A Homemaker Be A Feminist?
I was raised by a working, single mother. She went to Stanford, majored in economics, became a public school teacher, wrote a book, and now works as a journalist. She didn’t give up her job when she had my sister or me, and she certainly didn’t give it up after she and my father divorced.
