I watch Teen Mom, I was a teen mom, and I think it’s an alarmingly accurate representation of many of the attendant realities. But I think the mistake of this review (and roughly 100% of the other reviews of this show) is the resignation that these girls’ stories are Told. Past-tense. The…

Buffy vs. Edward

"As a huge fan of Buffy, it was hard for me not to notice how many plot points [from Twilight] had already been covered by our favorite blonde vampire slayer.

If girls have a natural edge in that department, then boys need remedial help and encouragement—like girls got in math—not extra indulgence.

Aside from being an interesting read, this article also contains my new favorite phrase: “clitoral hood pass.”
