I love writing but I'm bad at writing about me.

By mirablu on The One True Guide To Having Curly Hair

Call upon the doves and spiders to wrap your hair in fresh silk and laurels before you sleep, lest your cloud-pillow create a single tangle with its jealousy. The silk must be fresh, so its heart is pure.

Have you ever heard your hair make a noise as a strand breaks? It has cursed you. A split end will erupt, and it may tear all the way to the cuticle, and finally split in your brain. Do you want split neurons? No? Then you had better not be using any combs with teeth narrower than the prescribed 0.84 inches, hadn't you?

>>> Nicki: What if you just phoned it in like Jay Z in "Drunk in Love"??

Hahahahahaha. Yes.

Also I am pro Nicki's new habit of having male rappers stand or sit around in her videos while she does all the talking.

By inthepost on Never Bring Your Boyfriend to Brunch

I always feel so bad about this but like, I want at least 24-48 hours' notice if a friend is bringing their partner to a hangout that was going to be one-on-one. I have to mentally prepare! I already don't see these friends enough! Their partners are mostly great but they are not my best friends? I feel like this is a thing that most single people feel and then forget as soon as they are in a couple.

By commanderbanana on Female New York Post Writer Feels Differently Than Other Women

Welp, this is disgusting. This makes me want to follow Doree "Chaff-For-Brans" Lewak around with bins filled with ice water and pigeon droppings and periodically drench her with them. "Oh I'm sorry! I just assumed by your confident strut and significant eye contact that you WANTED the ice cold water and pigeon droppings poured over you, because that's how I catcall ladies."
Also, Doree "My Brain May Be Made of Spam, We Just Don't Know" Lewak, those hunky Israeli construction workers you're referring to would have been, you know, enslaved. So fuck you too.

This is a good place to make a shout out to Jackie Mitchell, a female AA pitcher who struck out both BABE RUTH and LOU GEHRIG just moments before MLB banned women from playing! (The ban lasted all the way until 1992!)

I loved this as soon as I read the title, but then "Brayden" and I giggle-snorted and got shushed by my whole office.

So real.

Because putting a single mother in jail is DEFINITELY going to improve the life of this 9 year old girl.

By crocuta on Commodity Fetish: This Is Not Really What a Feminist Looks Like

This was great!

I've also noticed that most companies like Feminist Apparel seem entirely unconcerned with where their products are sourced from. It's bit ironic to have something like "Feminism is for Everybody" printed on a shirt that might have been sewn by an underpaid teenage girl in a third-world sweatshop.
