What Are We Talking About When We Talk About Guns?
“We’re going to have to have a conversation.” We’ve all used it, the shorthand for “I want you to feel better, but I’m not interested in fixing this problem, because it is hard.” We kick the can and go along, surprised but not shocked when we’re standing in...

What is Sexual Harassment?
But is it harassment? Imagine an office Christmas party where a male boss grabs a female employee’s ass. She later makes an allegation against him which he tries to deny, but his actions were caught on a security camera and the man is fired. Some readers ma...

Getting Gross About the Diva Cup

Sarah and the Carbon Fiber Tit-Squisher
