Though I like Hillary Clinton, I am by no means a fervently unflinching Clinton supporter (just ask Frisky’s own Robyn about the arguments we’ve had for a week about why I think the Clinton email fiasco is newsworthy). Still, I can’t get on board with TIME’s latest cover, which has a Hillary silhouette that looks nothing like… READ MORE »

You know, I used to think that TIME magazine was a reputable source of information. When I saw Christina Hoff Sommers’ “5 Feminist Myths That Will Not Die” published on their website, I thought, Alright, maybe they’re just trying to give voice to a different perspective.

It seems like I keep seeing more and more news about teacher/student affairs…especially ones involving female teachers and their young male students. As a former high school teacher, this whole scenario never gets less despicable and disgusting to me.
