Why It’s Better Not To Have A Valentine

Sometime when I wasn't looking, Valentine's Day metamorphosed from a C-list kids' holiday, with pink and red candy and construction-paper hearts, into an extravaganza.

Are Men Turning Into Jerks?

According to Details, decades of feminism and political correctness have turned 21st century guys into total pigs. Because they've been forced to play Mr. Nice Guy and suppress their baser, manlier instincts for years, today's men are starting to revert back to some of their less politically correct, more misogynist ways.
