10 Lessons I Learned From My Breakup with New York City

(6) Comments | Posted October 13, 2014 | 6:40 PM

I'm sure you have it all together. A good job, a nice boyfriend or girlfriend or spouse, maybe some kids. A glass of wine or a beer at night. An apartment, student loans and one week a year where you do whatever you like without checking the emails on your...

My Father's Last Yankee: A Eulogy for Derek Jeter's Career

(2) Comments | Posted September 25, 2014 | 4:36 PM

I've broken up with baseball three times in my life.

Once when I found out I was not Puerto Rican enough (at all) to be Bernie Williams cousin, despite my father telling me I was when I was five years old. (I was 11 upon making this discovery). Baseball...

Frauen, die Nacktfotos machen, sind keine Schlampen

(9) Comments | Posted September 7, 2014 | 8:01 PM

Herzlichen Glückwunsch zusammen. Die ganze Welt der Social Media ist vergangene Woche fast zusammengebrochen - wegen Brüsten.

Nicht wegen Terrorismus oder Kindern, die durch Bomben ihre Arme verlieren oder wegen einer anderen grotesken Störung in der Welt. Nein, wegen Brüsten.

Ich fordere alle heraus, mir ihre Handys zu zeigen,...

Nude Photo Leaks Are the New Slut-Shaming

(587) Comments | Posted September 2, 2014 | 12:04 PM

Congrats, everyone. The entire world of social media almost collapsed this week because of boobs. Not because of terrorism, or children hit with bombs walking around with no arms, or because of some grotesque anomaly in the world. But because of boobs.

I challenge all who would call Jennifer...

No Dudes, Catcalling Isn't Flattering

It's 8:30. I'm running late for work, so I decide to hop a cab. I walk up 81st to Park because I know I have a better chance of getting a cab there. I'm in flip-flops, a skirt and a blouse.

I call my mom like I always do...

The Death of Auto Grat; How the IRS is Turning Servers Into Slaves

(2) Comments | Posted June 20, 2014 | 1:44 PM

Last year, I remember seeing some meme on Facebook -- in between all the pictures of new babies and engagement rings -- about the IRS changing the rule regarding auto grat in restaurants. It was big, cheesy text and looked like it had been copied from The Onion, so I...

Confession d'une barmaid: 10 choses qu'elles détestent à votre sujet

Cet article a été republié avec la permission de

Je me souviens précisément de ma première sortie dans le pub où je travaille actuellement. Je venais d'être licenciée d'un emploi si détestable que je priais pour que le métro tombe en panne chaque matin. Ce soir-là, la barmaid (qui...

Five Reasons Every Guy Should Pick the Nice Girl

(3) Comments | Posted May 22, 2014 | 8:10 PM

You know that saying "nice guys finish last"? As in, the guys who do the right thing, treat people -- and specifically women -- well, and hold the door for ladies and stuff, they always get screwed over. It's one of those cosmic rules, right?

Who gets ahead in...

Belle Knox's Porn Crusade Is Fantasy, Not Feminism

(2) Comments | Posted April 4, 2014 | 4:39 PM

I really, really hate Duke. I'll preface this whole thing by laying out my unabashed (and probably illogical) disdain for the Blue Devils up front. Having graduated from the University of Maryland, I'm pretty sure I took a freshman course on my obligation to just despise Duke. And so I...

Jesus Discriminates, This I Know, For the Bible Tells Me So

(2) Comments | Posted February 24, 2014 | 12:12 PM

Imagine (or in my case, remember) for a moment that you are a lady driver. You're driving through the desert in Arizona. Nothing around you. Kind of looks like a scene from The Hills Have Eyes. You don't have enough gas to make it to where you're going. You happen...

Duck Dynasty Has Freedom of Speech, Not Freedom From Criticism

(83) Comments | Posted December 19, 2013 | 10:17 AM

I don't watch reality television. After a brief stint on a reality show two years ago, I know that there's about as much reality in such shows as there is in an episode of True Blood.

Needless to say, I don't watch Duck Dynasty. A show about people with...

Why Skinny Is the New Fat

(41) Comments | Posted November 7, 2013 | 2:52 PM

Skinny is the new fat. Or so a couple of sites would lead you to believe, anyway.

In my recent browsing of the gossip blogs, I came across a post that chronicled plus-sized model Robyn Lawley talking about "the thigh gap phenomenon" on the website Celebitchy. The...

My Southern Happiness and the Quality of Life

(5) Comments | Posted September 9, 2013 | 11:48 AM

When we were little and people asked us what we wanted to be when we grew up, no five year old ever answered "happy." Tragic, right, when you think about it? Somewhere in between our answers of doctors and veterinarians and whatever else, I think at five, we all assumed...

The Difference Between Being Sexually Empowered and Twerking

(107) Comments | Posted August 28, 2013 | 7:29 PM

I was entirely surprised when a little post I wrote last week about the truth about the word "slut" was so well received. A lot of women (and men) thanked me for saying that women who are sexually active, who have a healthy sex life and who unabashedly...

Je suis une salope. Une vraie de vraie salope. Ils sont beaucoup à le dire. Ceux qui lisent mon blog et sont en désaccord avec son contenu. Ceux qui ne m'aiment pas. Les femmes qui pensent que le sexe est répugnant. Les types qui veulent des femmes bonnes à présenter...

The Truth About Being a Slutty Slut

I am a slut. A slutty slut slut. So say a lot of people. People who read my blog and disagree with its premise. People who don't like me. Women who think sex is gross. Guys who want the girl you bring home to mom and think because I talk...

The Proverbial Turf War Between Jason Collins and Tim Tebow

(53) Comments | Posted May 10, 2013 | 4:48 PM

When I woke up late last Monday, the first things I saw trending on Twitter were "Tim Tebow" and "The Gay Athlete." Immediately, I thought Tim Tebow was one of the several gay NFL players who had mulled the idea of coming out. Would absolutely explain the whole "still a...

This blog is part of our "In Our Corner" series, where members of the Gay Voices family share their stories of love and support in the face of hard times. This particular submission is a bit different because it's written by a straight member of our family, who is nominating...
