Wisconsin is finally going to allow birth control methods to be taught in sex education classes, catching them up with... well, one or two states, probably.

What are people doing on Facebook that they end up seeing these ads? We've never seen anything this dumb.

You would think I Hate My Parents (the blog) would've run out of great vintage photos to post at the expense of our relatives, but... oh no.

Ugly Betty was canceled after a season of disappointing ratings.

Gisele Bundchen gave birth to her baby with Tom Brady in the bathtub. It's kind of refreshing to see they didn't have a huge staff of nannies, midwives, doctors, and other hangers-on there and may actually live like semi-normal people.

“Opponents argued it was sending a message that sex was OK as long as birth control is used.” Sex is okay! They should keep asking them why sex is not okay until they reach the point where they realize that people value what they value for whatever reasons they provide if they provide any reasons at all. ( GE Moore came up with that decades earlier at Cambridge; I came up with that while talking to myself on the train.)

All of this advice is about boundaries. Everyone has different boundaries. All this piece does is reduce both sexes to stereotypes, which is either intellectually dishonest or the result of a fallacious worldview. Some of the more problematic issues on this list are the result of insecurity and poor-self image, which lists like this actually perpetuate by making it seem like all men don’t want to open themselves to emotional intimacy while all women are overbearing, jealous, and demanding. Also, the idea that there is a set timeline for when to reveal one's emotions is also detrimental. All people and all relationships are different.
