For the last few years I’ve been positively obsessed with all things ModCloth, a fashion company with one of its headquarters in my own city of Pittsburgh. Thanks to ModCloth, every single day I can successfully channel Joan from Mad Men, or my personal fashion soul mate, Zooey Deschanel. As I (…)

In doing research for my next video, which will be about depression, suicide, and the stigma around mental health, I stumbled upon something else that was depressing. About a year ago, 16 year old AJ Betts Jr. killed himself. This was after a year or so of being outed as gay and getting bullied, constantly. And fuck all, we haven’t (…)

So last week I was alerted by a few different people about this new article with women listing reasons why they didn’t need feminism. Pretty much immediately, the thread on one of the posts exploded with angry comments from my friends. I decided that while I would indeed do something with this as requested, I needed to wait until the day I (…)
