Abercrombie -- the brand that haunted your middle school days and made you think that wearing two polos stacked on top of each other would suddenly make you popular -- is dying. And I am here to sing its eulogy from the treetops.

You walk into the breakroom to get your mid-afternoon cup of coffee and notice a group of three employees sitting at a small table. Bob has his voice raised and is gesturing with his hands and you overhear: "I think we need a ban. Until we know what is going on with the Muslims."

I suppose, I am an accidental filmmaker. For it was by sheer accident that bored of making sales calls in New Delhi, I called up the offices of National Geographic, asking for a job on a Friday and started working with them a week later.

Siri's Definition Of 'Bitch' Is Beyond Offensive

Spike Lee, You Should Have Done the Right Thing With 'Chiraq

Ernest Owens | Posted 11.05.2015 | Black Voices
Ernest Owens

"The trailer for 'Chiraq,' in all its glitz and shock value, is arousing - but the premise of this film isn't." You make this a black-on-black trauma without taking into consideration external systemic factors. And to top it off, you place women of color as the barriers to these men's burdens. That's not original, that's just plain pathetic.

Ravishly

It appears that Apple finds sexism and racism is a bit, well, predictable. Even in texting. At least, that's what it seems to be with Apple's program. Type in "Fat" and just as soon as you hit space, three words will pop up as suggestions: "and", "girls" and "girl".

Why Women Take a Backseat in the College Greek System

Jennie Shulkin | Posted 06.08.2016 | College
Jennie Shulkin

Fraternities should not control who attends social events. Competition should not be a way of life for college women. Sex should not be an obligation. The sooner the problems of an archaic fraternity-sorority dynamic are corrected, the sooner the overall college experience can be far richer.

There is something fascinating, captivating even, about the Kardashian family that has drawn me in. Part of that I believe is the fact that the family is full of strong, independent women. Being such an avid feminist activist, this is obviously appealing.

Would we be having this discussion if Hugh Jackman had been displayed shirtless on that rotating pedestal? I think not. This was tongue and cheek, people. A parody. A lark. And a creative way to present a boring part of the show. Geesh!

Because fat girls aren't supposed to take pleasure in our bodies or even consider showing other people what they look like, there is a lot of sh*t that can hit the fan. Mostly caused by other people not knowing how to handle someone as sexy as me owning it.
