Now, Michelle, in this clearly fictional story, what you should have done is text "K" instead of "OK." Because "OK" can mean "okay" or it can mean "okay!" or it mean "o-kay..." but "K" definitely always means "hahaha I hate you."

@Choire Sicha@facebook This was the first movie I remember watching with a gay character who I understood to be gay (and not just implied) and also the first movie I ever saw where someone used the word "fuck" to mean "have sex with" and I was dazzled. You got a lot of bang for your PG-13 buck back then.

Haters (as my mother would call them) be damned, I'm a believer in OKC. They kept showing and showing me this dude until I was like OK, OKCUPID, I'LL TALK TO HIM, GOD. Four and a half years later we're married, baby on the way. So.

By Officedronette on How to Have a Miscarriage

Thank you for writing this so beautifully. I had a missed miscarriage last month, my first pregnancy, long awaited and very much wanted, and though I opted to complete the miscarriage surgically, so much of this resonated for me.

I hope writing this was healing for you. One of the first things I did the day after we found out was to grab my laptop, lay in bed, and write it all out.

Thank you for sharing your experience. Women need these stories. I read every account of miscarriage I could find, and each woman's story helped me so much as I dealt with my grief. Not only to feel less alone, but also to provide the reassurance that I would make it through the grief. Thank you.

For my own part, I like to wear tights and yoga pants more than once between washing, and underpants only once.

Oh god, forever. That's always the twist. I feel like there should have been one where the twist was like "Briefly, and the the eerie noise stopped and everything was totally fine." Because that would have caused me some real existential dread.

This is the first time I've ever read something about an actual individual NFL cheerleader. They're usually voiceless. I'm glad she's speaking up.

By Jaya on The Engagement Phone Cover and The Wedding-Industrial Complex

Oh my god thank you for this. I am getting married soon and I cringe every time I see this stuff specifically marketed to flaunt your engagement, a period that normally lasts less than a year!

A girl I know just changed her Facebook cover photo to say "He stole my heart so I'm stealing his name" and I wanted to barf.
