Harry Styles Stands Up For Gay Rights, Gives Me An Equality Boner

Harry Styles Stands Up For Gay Rights, Gives Me An Equality Boner

Y’know, for a nineteen-year old famous kid, Harry Styles has it together pretty hard. I think I recall comparing him to Justin Bieber five hundred to a thousand times in the past, but it’s becoming more and more clear to me that Harry is the vastly preferable of the two. I both regret and rescind those statements, and I hope you’ll accept my apologies. This is the first mistake I’ve ever made, obviously, so I hope you can show a little empathy. More »

Poll: Would You Buy Your Own Engagement Ring?

Poll: Would You Buy Your Own Engagement Ring?

A while back, rumors were swirling about Jessica Simpson having bought her own engagement ring. Now that there’s talk of she and beau Eric Johnson eloping, it’s bringing it all back up for us…

And so we want to know — would you ever buy your own engagement ring? Now, be honest here. I know that the temptation is to jump in and be all feminist, like, “it doesn’t matter who pays, as long as there’s love, we both pay it anyway if it’s financed [ed. note: that's actually a legitimate point], if I have more money I don’t care,” etc. etc. More »

I Don’t Want to Be Treated Like a Princess, I Want to Be Treated Like an Equal

I Don't Want to Be Treated Like a Princess, I Want to Be Treated Like an Equal

Over the holidays, I watched a lot of wedding shows. A lot of them. There was Say Yes to the Dress and My Fair Wedding with David Tutera and Bridezillas, and I loved every minute of it.

I know that most women have been fed tropes about being “princesses” since childhood (thanks a lot, Disney!), but the idea of a man treating me like a princess actually makes me want to marry him less.
