Ahh, Thanksgiving. A time of turkey, travel, tryptophan, and repeated viewings of “A Christmas Story” surrounded by family. If you’re coupled up in a relationship, you boo is probably in the picture, too, and perhaps-awkwardly negotiating an overnight bedroom situation. Will he be sleeping in your room (read: bed)? Will he be banished to the guest room with veiled threats from your mom that he’d better stay there all night? Did your normally-cool parents suddenly become sexytimes-Nazis? Why the hell is this such a big deal?! You share a bed all the time at your apartment!

Dear reader, I wish I knew. Parental figures can get weird about their kids’ sharing beds over the holidays, even when they know you’ve been dating for a long time … or have been living together for three years. There’s no sense in fighting it, unless you want to make the weekend awkward and put S-E-X on everyone’s mind. Whether he’s joining you and yours for the festivities, or you are joining him and his, here’s how to share a bed at a parents’ house without epic awkwardness.  Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: How To Discuss Abortion Over Thanksgiving With Your Relatives

  • We all have relatives with whom we disagree on political or social issues. Mine is my dad. We, however, can spar in a friendly way about Barack Obama (him) and Fox News (me) and everyone is still pleasant at the end of the day. Not all families are so lucky, though. That’s why Planned Parenthood has created this cool list of eight easy steps for discussing reproductive rights over the holidays. It’s filled with talking points on how to engage family members in conversation about abortion, the morning-after pill, and sex ed — instead of fighting. [PlannedParenthood.org]
  • The European Union has refused to release a film called “In-Justice: The Story Of Afghan Women In Jail,” which it commissioned, because it said two of the subjects’ lives will be in danger if it does. One woman is doing 12 years in prison for being a rape victim; the other is in jail for leaving her abusive husband. [Yahoo Keep reading »

10 Things Not To Do At Your First Holiday Dinner With His Folks

Whether you’ve been dating for weeks or years, the first holiday meal you spend at his family’s house is unnerving. Hopefully, you’ve met his family before this big day, though maybe you haven’t. Regardless, the premiere Thanksgiving at his parents’ house is an entirely new adventure –who knows what you’re walking into? Each family has its own set of rituals, customs, and holiday expectations, not to mention unique ways of communicating, joking — and making stuffing. Here are 10 tips to help you minimize any potential awkwardness so that you won’t feel like the odd (wo)man out, and can instead focus on the marathon eating. And if you’re a liberal vegetarian and his parents are meat-worshiping Tea Partiers, maybe read this list twice.

11 Things In College I’m Not Thankful For

With late night study seshes being fueled by Ramen and Redbull, Thanksgiving has been the light at the end of this dark tunnel. Seeing friends and family, eating a hearty home-cooked meal, and doing absolutely nothing but sleeping and shopping for days in a row… it’s almost too good to be true.

But it’s not! It’s real. And I’m so thankful for this refreshing calm before the storm that is finals that it almost makes me want to stay home in a cranberry sauce-induced food coma forever. Because as great as college life is and as grateful as I am to be here, there are a few aspects of it that I am oh so NOT thankful for. Keep reading »

Hot Links: PETA’s Anti-Thanksgiving Turkey Ad Is Not Very Convincing

  • I don’t mean to be heartless, but PETA’s Thanksgiving-focused ad is completely ineffective, at least to a person terrified of medium-to-large sized fowl. See, dogs are wonderful and turkeys are disgusting, ugly, mean creatures and even though I much prefer Thanksgiving side dishes, I am very thankful the dead bird in the center of the table isn’t alive and charging at me. END RANT. COMMENCE PETA HATE MAIL. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
