It's pretty clear why men fantasize about being superheroes: they're strong, powerful and revered. It wasn’t until I allowed myself to be open, to be vulnerable, that I found I could enjoy the very thing a man wants to be—strong, masculine, confident. My hero. That to allow a man be what he strives to be doesn't take away from who I am or what I can do. And I know I'm not alone in this.
Kate Taylor's piece in the New York Times, "Sex on Campus: She Can Play That Game Too", caused quite a stir by putting a sexy new slant on hook-up culture: It's women in control, not men, who are driving the trend. But hooking up cannot replace or come close to fulfilling the human need for real connection. It doesn't make us smarter, stronger or more in control to avoid connection and intimacy. It doesn't set us up to be better or happier than the women who came before us. It just sets us up to be disappointed in a different way.
Filed under How Do You Feel About Kids: Don't Have Kids Have Kids Don't Want Kids The End. I inferred the following: 1) If I wanted kids, I would have them by now. 2) No one can actually want kids. 3) You may have kids, but that doesn't mean you wanted them.

Yesterday, an op-ed on FoxNews.com — a publication I do not make a habit of reading — sent the internet into a tailspin. Its conservative author, Susanne Venker, is a woman with whom I’m certain I have next to nothing in common. Venker’s essay was pummeled by Jezebel, Refinery29 and The Awl – three sites I respect thoroughly and read on the regular. When I finally followed the trail back to Venker’s original piece, I fully expected my head to explode from rage. Instead, something worse happened. Something that caused me much distress.
Imagine never having to think about maintaining your bikini area — ever. Believe it or not, hairy legs, fuzzy pits, and 'no hair down there' are a way of life for plenty of women. That means skipping directly over the pre-date deforestation process and straight to outfit selection. We asked two women who live the no-shave lifestyle (and not just in November) to reveal what it's really like to live and love in a follicle-phobic society.
Every time you share a recipe on Pinterest, a feminist loses her wings. Because if you happen to love cooking, especially healthy recipes, that sets the women's movement back a few decades.
If only I could give Sandra Fluke a high-five right now! As a fellow American woman, I've been fuming over the incredibly disrespectful, ignorant, and downright detestable comments Rush Limbaugh made about the Georgetown Law University student since that oafish blowhard called her a "slut" on the air back in February (for daring to voice her opinion that universities should provide contraception coverage).

Well, well. Either there is a God after all, or the world really is coming to an end. Proof? A Catholic nun is condoning masturbation! Shocking, right? Not only that, but the maverick who's gotten the Vatican all up in arms is also down with divorce and thinks gay marriage is all the rage.
It seems we're perpetutally trying to answer this question: Is chivalry truly dead? And if not, should it be? In Jenna Birch's recent article "10 Chivalrous Acts That Make Women Melt," she discusses the long-lost art of chivalry. Basic acts, such as holding doors for women, have become all-too rare, according to Birch. In response, one male reader wrote this: "So, women want to be treated just like men—except when they don't."
The book "Fifty Shades Of Grey" is rocketing up the fiction best-seller charts as well as the underwears of America's women. Because of its content, the book has inspired many essays about BDSM, sexual power and contemporary, American ladies.
