15 Rules For Girls … That Are Meant to Be Broken

Don’t get me wrong. I love rules. They’re great. They provide order. Structure. Prevent us from killing each other over the little things (Like your roommate eating the last of the Tostitos) and the big things (Like your roommate eating the last of the Lime Tostitos). Those rules are important, necessary even. But some rules, well they’re not quite as important, not quite as necessary. In fact, they’re not necessary at all.

Some rules, especially rules for girls, well, they’re just made to be broken…

1. Always behave like a lady. Prim and proper and absolutely perfect. Think Martha Stewart meets Sarah Palin. Or something like that. I’ve never been all that good with this rule. Read more… Keep reading »

The Ten Commandments Of Facebook

For all the negative things one can say about Facebook, it would be hard to deny how easy the social networking site makes it to keep in touch with people.

How Did You Get Out Past Curfew? The Frisky Shares Our Sneakiest Stories

Being a teenager totally sucked. But it especially sucked when my parents arbitrarily made up rules. Some nights they were whatevs about a curfew, but other nights they’d randomly say “be home by midnight!” or “be home by 11!” Inconsistent parenting like that was very, very frustrating — especially since I was basically good kid who didn’t do too many naughty things. (Granted, I did not do much to endear them to trust me after I got my belly button and tongue pierced.)

But I’ve always been a devious girl, so when I had a curfew, you’d best believe I found ways to get around it …. Keep reading »

Why A Woman Shouldn’t Say “I Love You” First

If I have a daughter one day, among the many things I’ll teach her will be how to tie her shoes, to look both ways before crossing the street, to never end a sentence with a preposition, and to always let the man say “I love you” first. I’ll give her plenty of other relationship tips, too, like how it’s perfectly okay to ask a guy out, to make the first move, to even propose, but when it comes to the “L” word, the ball’s in the guy’s court. When this issue came up last week in my list of 30 things a woman shouldn’t do before 30, it caused a bit of commotion. “What is this, the Victorian era?” wrote one commenter, “if you truly love someone, tell them. Otherwise you’re just playing outdated coquettish games.” Another commenter put it more diplomatically: “I don’t think I’ve ever said ‘I love you’ first, but someone has to do it. It’s okay to take a few risks.” I appreciate both arguments and understand the sentiments behind them, but at the risk of having my feminist card revoked, I think it’s naïve for a woman to utter those three little words before a man does.

Hey Kids! Hugs Are For Thugs!

The school board in Montgomery, AL, has such a strict policy against public displays of affection that it recently gave detention to two middle school girls who hugged female friends while on school grounds. Supposedly, bans like these are hyper reactive measures to prevent sexual harassment claims between students. The rationale behind “no hug” bans is that school officials don’t want to have to make the distinction between friendly hugs and unwanted ones — but shouldn’t the student being hugged be the one to express the difference? Anyway, if you tell kids that hugging each other inappropriately is not an on-campus activity, they’re just going to assume it’s okay for off-campus recreation, along with smoking cigarettes behind the 7-Eleven and stealing Playboys from under dad’s bed.
