I Guess I'm Supposed to Feel Empowered by the Pubic Hair in This Razor Ad I Guess I'm Supposed to Feel Empowered by the Pubic Hair in This Razor Ad

“Red, White, and You Do You” is the tagline of the latest marketing campaign for Billie, just one of the crop of new, trendy hair removal companies for women. The ad features a diverse group of women, some who have armpit hair or pubic hair visible against the outline of their swim suits. The images do not show any…

Megan Rapinoe Is Not Going to the 'Fucking White House' Megan Rapinoe Is Not Going to the 'Fucking White House'

The U.S. women’s soccer team is unfathomably cool and just made it to the FIFA Women’s World Cup quarter finals—but if the team makes it to the end and wins this whole thing, Megan Rapinoe will absolutely not be celebrating at the White House.

This Is Going to Be the Biggest Carpool Karaoke Yet This Is Going to Be the Biggest Carpool Karaoke Yet

Meryl Streep, James Corden, Nicole Kidman, Awkwafina, Ariana Grande, Keegan-Michael Key, and Andrew Rannells are teaming up for a new Netflix project, which Deadline reports is a Ryan Murphy-helmed adaptation of the Broadway musical The Prom. Or is it? It sounds like a ruse for Corden’s biggest episode of “Carpool…

On Monday, Senator Bernie Sanders and Representative Ilhan Omar introduced two bills to eliminate the entirety of the student loan debt in the U.S., following another student loan debt relief plan from Senator Elizabeth Warren released in April. But presidential candidates aren’t the only ones interested in doing…

Nazi Knitters, Fuck Off Nazi Knitters, Fuck Off

Some things are sacred. Ravelry, the online knitting community that provides space for members to share patterns for everything under the sun is one of them. On Sunday, the website said it would not longer tolerate users trying to distract others from the singular joy of knitting with their implicit support of white…

Snapshots of the US Women's Soccer Team Destroying Their Enemies Snapshots of the US Women's Soccer Team Destroying Their Enemies

It’s the most wonderful time of the year—soccer time, baby—and today, we are celebrating the U.S. women’s soccer team advancing to the quarter finals of FIFA Women’s World Cup, after beating Spain 2-1. You will absolutely never catch me chanting “USA! USA!” (and I never root for the U.S. men’s soccer team), but…

How Horny Are the Star Wars Movies?

In 2002, I went to the movies with my mom to see Star Wars: Episode II: Attack of the Clones—a choice that, to this day, makes little sense to me. As a family, we had never been into Star Wars, and in fact, I had never seen any other movie in the series before. But I was about 11 years old, and I loved it—mainly…

I Remain Puzzled by Jeff Goldblum and Emilie Livingston's Matching Date-Night Shirts I Remain Puzzled by Jeff Goldblum and Emilie Livingston's Matching Date-Night Shirts

Jeff Goldblum and his wife Emilie Livingston were photographed wearing matching half-floral, half-Hawaiian print Prada button-ups, paired with a shock of white bottoms. Some questions: How did this happen? Was it by chance, the kind of pure coincidence that happens when two people are deeply in love but also share…

Happy Pride From AT&T and the $1.8 Million It Gave to Anti-LGBTQ+ and Republican Candidates Happy Pride From AT&T and the $1.8 Million It Gave to Anti-LGBTQ+ and Republican Candidates

Pride is a time to celebrate and honor the LGBTQIA+ people who have fought for equal rights before the law—sometimes literally, like the crowds at Stonewall, who defended themselves against cops raiding the New York City gay bar 50 years ago this month.

Nancy Pelosi Could Have at Least Given Justin Trudeau Some Nice Weed Nancy Pelosi Could Have at Least Given Justin Trudeau Some Nice Weed

It’s a historic win for Toronto, and it deserves to be celebrated as such.

The Time Your Vacation Just Went to Shit The Time Your Vacation Just Went to Shit

It’s been pouring all week in New York, and although I just got back from visiting my family in the desert, I feel ready to get out of the city again. Clouds? Rain? HUMIDITY? No thank you.

Lil Nas X and Cardi B Prove the Yeehaw Agenda Is Eternal

Sure: Lil Nas X, “Rodeo” feat. Cardi B - While I genuinely love “Old Town Road,” the rest of the viral Atlanta rapper’s EP out today is underwhelming. A stand-out is this song with Cardi B which treads in the same yeehaw energy as his big hit, but honestly Cardi rules the song when she raps, “I’ll be chilling watching…

If You Haven't Watched I Know What You Did Last Summer, What Are You Waiting Forrrr??!! If You Haven't Watched I Know What You Did Last Summer, What Are You Waiting Forrrr??!!

When I Know What You Did Last Summer was first released in 1997, the studio was trying to capitalize on the lucrative success of Scream by the same screenwriter, Kevin Williamson just one year earlier. The film’s production was rushed. Miramax sued Sony over language in the film’s marketing that suggested it was from…

Unfortunately, That Voice Recording Is Almost Definitely Not Frida Kahlo Unfortunately, That Voice Recording Is Almost Definitely Not Frida Kahlo

Last Thursday, an audio clip thought to be the only known recording to Frida Kahlo’s voice surfaced and went viral. This website, and many others, wrote about it. The discovery would have been a breakthrough for historians, who have no recorded samples of the artist and activist’s speech; at the National Sound Library…

Social Media May Be Driving Younger People to Seek Out Plastic Surgery Social Media May Be Driving Younger People to Seek Out Plastic Surgery

In the old days, people used to want Angelina Jolie’s nose. Now, according to an increasing number of plastic surgeons, patients often refer to their own selfies during cosmetic consultations, in an attempt to recreate the way their own face looks in a front-facing camera or through a puppy dog eyes filter.

The New York City beauty store Ricky’s, with its iconic electric blue toothpaste logo, may end up closing all but two stores, the New York Post reported on Tuesday. It’s a potentially sad day for the historic beauty chain, which over the years also lured customers in by selling sex toys, wigs, and Halloween costumes.

Hacienda HealthCare Might Finally Lose Its License—Over Maggots, Not Rape Hacienda HealthCare Might Finally Lose Its License—Over Maggots, Not Rape

Hacienda HealthCare—the Phoenix, Arizona facility where an incapacitated patient was raped and gave birth last December—could now potentially lose its license. Yet the potential revoking comes not after charges that a nurse allegedly raped a patient, but over another issue entirely: maggots, which were found on…

Last year, a man from Anchorage, Alaska pleaded guilty to second-degree assault for tackling, strangling, and ejaculating on an unconscious woman on the side of a road. In September, he walked out of court facing no jail time.

And Here's Live Footage of Taylor Swift and Katy Perry Making Up And Here's Live Footage of Taylor Swift and Katy Perry Making Up

Taylor Swift’s video for her latest single, the GLAAD-namedropping “You Need to Calm Down,” has trailer parks, back tattoos, evangelical trolls, Ryan Reynolds painting, and one big food fight that’s supposed to symbolize what it feels like to log onto Twitter.
