If children end up being a part of my eventual family…this will happen.
Oh my gosh I love her.
If Bert and Ernie were real, and gay, and in sex therapy, with body image issues, it would look a lot like FELT. My piece in today’s New York Times, behind the scenes from the new LOGO series.
JESSICA BENNETT: WRITER, EDITOR, ADVOCATE
Some people are so gifted with words that you want to drop everything and read anything they’ve ever written. For me, no one fits that description more perfectly than Jessica Bennett. Besides being an outspoken advocate for equal rights, she’s been the executive editor at Tumblr, a senior editor at Newsweek, and has had pieces published everywhere from The Atlantic to The New York Times. All her brilliance aside, she also happens to be really nice and incredibly funny.

Feminism is the belief in equality for men and women. That’s not just how I define it, that is the definition. I can’t stand when people say they believe in the above (ahem, Marisa Mayer) but that they’re not a feminist. YES YOU ARE. Own it, girl!

She’s a source of widespread frustration and anxiety who is demoralizing, uncaring, morale-draining, and very unpopular. He demands excellence and relevance.
She is difficult to work with, unreasonable, impossible, stubborn. He has a strong vision and insists on seeing it carried out.
She is AWOL and disengaged. He attended Sundance and SXSW.
She is not a naturally charismatic person, not approachable, tough as nails. He is direct.
She is brusque, blunt, and dismissive. He does not like to waste time.
She is uncaring, unable to march forward or provide reassurance, and doesn’t make people feel good. He is not your mommy.
She is condescending. He is the boss.
Pretty much. Via annfriedman.
Nylon Stockings During WWII
Silk or nylon stockings were in extremely short supply by the summer of 1942, despite the presence of American GI’s In Britain who could sometimes get hold of stockings from the US. Most women had to find ingenious methods of dressing their legs.
