Stay Calm Pregnants, Here’s A Shopping Guide Of Regular Clothing That Can Double As Maternity Clothing

Stay Calm Pregnants, Hereâs A Shopping Guide Of Regular Clothing That Can Double As Maternity Clothing

Buying clothes you will only wear for a few months is the absolute pits, unless you’re so rich and fabulous that you buy designer stuff off the runway and only wear it long enough to blog about it. But assuming you’re a normal person who likes to hang onto her clothes for more than a few weeks, buying maternity clothes is the worst. More »

World’s Worst Boyfriend Convinces Prom Date She’s Been Rejected From College

Worldâs Worst Boyfriend Convinces Prom Date Sheâs Been Rejected From College

There’s something to be said for slipping a person a piece of notebook paper that says “Will you go to prom with me? Check yes or no.” Somehow the rush to come up with creative and outlandish ways of asking people to prom—aka “promposals”—had gotten to the point where promposals are crazier than actual proposals, and some 17-year-old boys are just awful at coming up with fun surprises, like this guy who sent his girlfriend a very convincing letter telling her she had just been rejected from college. Luckily for the boyfriend, she thought it was funny, but we would have had all the heart attacks. More »

Woman Takes Off Pants And Steals Wine, Proving That All Your Dreams Are Possible

Woman Takes Off Pants And Steals Wine, Proving That All Your Dreams Are Possible

It’s sad to think back to elementary school and remember what you imagined adulthood would be like. (If my eleven-year-old self asks, tell her I’m a world famous author slash professional opera singer, I look like Jessica Biel, I’m married to Ewan McGregor, and I’m constantly eating chocolate croissants in my Parisian pied-à-terre.) There’s nothing harder than growing up and realizing that some dreams are just unattainable for you, but it can sometimes be inspiring to know that there are people out there living your perfect life. For instance, I think I saw my dream self on CNN today. Not the dream self I imagined in fourth grade, no, but the one I fantasize about now. She was pantsless and stealing two boxes of wine. More »

Gisele Bündchen’s Super Rich Supermodel Reputation Got Her In Trouble With The IRS

Gisele Bündchenâs Super Rich Supermodel Reputation Got Her In Trouble With The IRS

It’s pretty unfair to Gwyneth Paltrow, but Gisele Bündchen is one of the few celebrities with no grasp on reality that I can still appreciate. She gets her hair and nails done by a team of specialists while she breastfeeds. She pretend she uses shampoo brands you can find in the grocery storewhen she has an estimated net worth of $290 million. She spends her days forcing babies to do yoga. I kind of want to pat her gently on the head when she claims she’s as down-to-earth as they come, but at the same time, I don’t dislike her. It’s a mystery. More »

12 Things We Wish We’d Learned In Sex Ed Besides ‘Don’t Get Pregnant’

12 Things We Wish Weâd Learned In Sex Ed Besides âDonât Get Pregnantâ

We all know that sex ed is seriously lacking in the United States. Teens are generally clueless about how things work, young adults are still not using condoms during one-night stands, and even elderly people are catching STDs like they’re Pokemon. That’s why it’s not surprising that a new study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is showing that kids need to be educated about sexuality before they start having sex, and they need to be educated beyond “look at these pictures of herpes and think about sin.” More »

James Franco Allegedly Tried To Meet Up With A Teen Girl Via Instagram, So That’s Not Creepy At All

James Franco Allegedly Tried To Meet Up With A Teen Girl Via Instagram, So Thatâs Not Creepy At All

So in today’s I just don’t even know what, an alleged conversation between James Franco and a seventeen-year-old teen named Lucy is making the rounds, and it looks an awful lot like he’s trying to meet up for God knows what. He’s not flat out denying anything, and for all we know, this is some bizarro experiment he cooked up for his next “art” project, or homework for some fake degree he’s pursuing. It’s James fucking Franco. More »

Outrage Explodes Over Skimpy Bathing Suits For Kids, But Don’t 7-Year-Olds Deserve Sexier Clothing Options?

Outrage Explodes Over Skimpy Bathing Suits For Kids, But Donât 7-Year-Olds Deserve Sexier Clothing Options?

90′s poster girl and clothing designer (who knew?) Elizabeth Hurley is facing some backlash about her eponymous clothing line’s children’s bathing suits, which some prudes are calling too damn hot. In fact, some tightwads are arguing that Hurley’s line is sexualizing children by making suits that look like adult lingerie, but I don’t see what all the fuss is about. More »

12 Ways Your Relationships Would Be Suck If You Grew Up A Duggar

You have probably been a relationship at some point in your life. Perhaps you’ve been in two relationships, three, four or even more!

5 Times Thought Catalog Exploited Rape For Clicks

5 Times Thought Catalog Exploited Rape For Clicks

Thought Catalog–a repository for millennial thoughts and perhaps the great embarrassment of the Internet generation (a generation that spawned Aaron Carter, no less)–are pioneers of a new genre we’re calling “rape trolling.” Thought Catalog delights in exploiting our collective disgust and outrage about rape to enhance their page views, and they’ve been rape trolling with great success.

10 Ways Social Media Makes Your Breakup Suck Worse

10 Ways Social Media Makes Your Breakup Suck Worse

It was just like any other Monday when I decided to post this really incredible YouTube video of a tap dancer going rogue at her dance recital onto the Facebook wall of my best friend. I am not one to spend hours on Facebook but I am certainly not beyond casually scrolling through my newsfeed now and then. With a click of a button I was transported from the safety of my bed into a spiraling vortex of doom from which I would not recover from for over an hour. More »
