Dear Internet: Gurl.com Still Exists!

Dear Internet: Gurl.com Still Exists!

This post is brought to you by our friends at Gurl…who definitely exist.

This morning, we stumbled upon an article on The Cut that was basically an ode to Gurl.com. A Jezebel writer was then inspired to write a very similar piece. Both authors reminisced on “the old gURL.com” as ”the forgotten pioneer of teenage pop-feminism” (no really, that was actually the title of The Cut article). Both pieces talked about how informational, helpful, and wonderful Gurl used to be, without really mentioning the fact that, uh, Gurl.com still exists. More »

Jesus Freak: Abstinence Is The Worst Reason To Rush Into Marriage

Jesus Freak: Abstinence Is The Worst Reason To Rush Into Marriage

While I technically have only been with one man, my husband, we decided to rapidly switch gears and live together in sin two years prior to getting married.
