My Awkward Relationship With Barbie, Pink, And Being Genderless
Ever since I was a little girl, I was told that Barbie was the enemy. Barbie, to people I was around, was everything I should not be. Pink. Housewife. Stupid. And though they never said it out loud, there was a certain stigma that came with the flashy all-American femininity that Barbie signified.
What Happened To McDonald's PlayPlaces?
If you're an 80s baby like me, you remember the Golden Age of fast food pretty well. Or, like, the tail end of it, anyway. It was a glorious age where kids learned to have a Pavlovian reflex over the oily scent of deep fried fries, knowing that they would be able to sink their teeth into a sad little patty on a limp burger bun.
#BoycottVictoriasSecret: Victoria's Secret Alternatives
So, recently, I heard about a certain altercation that happened in my home state of New Jersey. Well, altercation isn't quite fair. A white woman by the name of Abigail Elphick hit a black woman then tried to fake a panic attack when the woman decided to record her violent outburst.

It's Not Just You: Women Are Losing Interest In Men, Dating, And Marriage
Lately, I've been noticing a bunch of interesting trends in the online world. And in real life. As a geriatric Millennial, I grew up in a world where dating was just what you did. I was the type of person who genuinely needs to be married to be happy. Most people my age, especially female-presenting people, tend to have had the same vibe.
Ask A Porn Star: Vinnie O'Neill
I remember when I first heard about Vinnie. We were doing a rough draft of a podcast where it was me and three porn guys talking about the difficulties men have, and where porn can help. (You'll see it eventually.)
The Steak 48 Debacle: A Critic's Take
Hello! I'm not sure whether you know me by my reading, but I'm a food critic. As a food critic, I've gotten a lot of insight into the way the food world works. There are a lot of restaurants that tend to make people talk about them---and not in a good way.
