8 Types Of Mothers & The Issues They Gave You

We don’t get to choose our mothers. That would make everything so much easier. Or would it? There’s no such thing as a perfect mother. We may wish our mothers were in some way different, but that’s a waste of energy. The truth is, any mother we would have had would’ve left us with a…

Chick-Fil-A’s Mother-Son Date Knight Sounds Awful-Wonderful

There Is No Way John Travolta Is Gay Based On This Intimate And Personal Powerpoint Mother’s Day Gift

It’s intimate and personal, you guys. I mean, he [his assistant] included the couple’s Harper’s Bazaar cover. And the soundtrack is a Barbra Streisand song and there is absolutely nothing gay about that. On a side note, their family is gorgeous.

Nightmare Moms Of Men We’ve Loved

Now that Mother’s Day is over, it’s time for some real talk on this “mothering” thing. Own own mom might be in line for sainthood, but we’ve dated some dudes whose mamas made “Monster-In-Law” look like an episode of “Teletubbies.”

My personal least-favorite mother-of-an-ex-boyfriend was the one who didn’t think I was good…

Girl Talk: I’m A Lesbian Mom

When I think about Mother’s Day, I usually picture a dad in plaid pajama pants destroying the kitchen with his kids in a clumsy effort to make his wife breakfast in bed. There is flour everywhere, kids are enthusiastically beating something in a bowl and Dad is putting a single red rose in a vase.

Show me a woman who doesn’t love a spa day and I’ll show you a woman who is lying (or a robot, it has to be one or the other). In fact, I’ll bet every man would love a good spa day, too, if they’d just quit it with the preconceived gender notions. Whatever, man!

Girl Talk: Dear Mom, You Were Right About Everything (Almost)

We haven’t always gotten along. There have been some wicked fights over the years, starting in the sixth grade when I didn’t want to wear my ripe-for-teasing plaid shorts to school, or in ninth grade when you insisted a C minus in trig warranted summer school (it didn’t), or that visit during college when I…
