Single Cat Lady and Proud

“I don’t think this is going to work. Good luck with things.” That’s a real text I received from a guy I never even went on a date with. “I didn’t realize there was a ‘this’,” I replied ....more

Why Are We All so Obsessed with Witches?

By Alex Miller It’s no secret that Americans are fascinated by witches. The amount of witch-related popular culture that we as a country produce is so great it could easily be its own genre. Chances are that at some point in their lives, most of the readers of this post will have had at least one witchy guilty pleasure, and in my experience that is particularly the case for women and queer men ....more

Don’t You Dare Defund Planned Parenthood

Over three years ago, my friend Taylor Kuether​ wrote this editorial in her school paper about signs she saw at a pro-life rally that read “Defund Planned Parenthood.” Unfortunately, it’s 2015 and Republicans in Congress are now threatening to shutdown the government in order to do just that. It’s disgraceful that women’s health services are such a point of contention in America. Since when did body autonomy become a political issue? ...more

Real Issues Are Scary so Here’s a Distraction: Alpha Phi and the Art of Changing the Subject

By Sierra O’Mara Schwartz When I first saw the Alpha Phi chapter at the University of Alabama’s recruitment video pop up on my news feed, I figured it was posted by some guy in a frat I went to college with or by an Alpha Phi I’d met during my undergrad. I went to a fairly Greek school, so my timeline being flooded with recruitment videos is nothing out of the ordinary. But when I discovered this clip was not from a Facebook friend, but rather ABC News, I was a little confused ....more
