Turns Out Bill O’Reilly Is An Even Bigger Shitbag Than We Thought
Here’s some not surprising news: Bill O’Reilly is a garbage bag of a human being.

10 Celebrities We Hate More Than Anne Hathaway In Honor Of Her Birthday
If you’ve felt a little off recently, there’s probably a pretty good reason. No, Mercury isn’t in retrograde or anything. It’s Anne Hathaway’s birthday on November 12th. Hating on Anne Hathaway is kind of like cringing when someone asks you to take a tequila shot. It’s a reflex that we all share, and although some of us may be able to point to a specific moment in history when we started hating Anne Hathaway and/or tequila shots, it’s also perfectly

The Republicans Are Passing Their Tax Bill And You Should Probs Know What’s In It
Last week, the Senate unveiled its newly proposed tax plan, and the House will be voting ASAP on their own plan to cut taxes for billionaires save the middle class. I know you’re already snoring, but this shit is important because unless you’re the current President of the United States, you probably pay taxes and should know where all that money that could otherwise be spent on brunch is going. The two bills will need to pass through their

Welp, ‘One Tree Hill’ Is Ruined
The showrunner of , Mark Schwahn, might want to be something other than what he's been trying to be lately, because he's been accused of sexual harassment by the cast and crew. Another day, another powerful man named as a criminal asshole. It can only be 2017. The story started when Audrey Wauchope, one of the writers on , accused an unnamed producer (who is now presumed to be Schwahn) on the first show she worked for (aka) of harassment,

50 Shades Of Gaslighting: Disturbing Signs An Abuser Is Twisting Your Reality

50 Shades Of Gaslighting: Disturbing Signs An Abuser Is Twisting Your Reality
“The erasure of the abuse was worse than the abuse…One of the most insidious things about gaslighting is the denial of reality. Being denied what you have seen. Being denied what you have experienced and know to be true. It can make you feel like you are crazy. But you are not crazy.” – Ariel Leve, How to Survive Gaslighting: When Manipulation Erases Your Reality Joshua Fuller How do you convince someone that something they to be true isn’t?

What Your Favorite LaCroix Flavor Says About You

What Your Favorite LaCroix Flavor Says About You
So, according to my calculations (and Wikipedia) LaCroix was made as a down-to-earth alternative to the “snobbish” Perrier. I’m pretty sure calling it LaCroix was their first mistake in trying to establish an accessible brand, mainly because LaCroix is the only word I have in my French vocabulary besides fromage. Cue DJ Khaled, because LaCroix really played themselves. Just like your alcoholic drink of choice tells me everything I need to know about you and more, so does your favorite

Yesterday’s Elections Were Literally The First Good Thing To Happen All Year

Yesterday’s Elections Were Literally The First Good Thing To Happen All Year
Guess who’s back, back again. Dems are back. Tell a friend. If you forgot that there were some v. important elections yesterday and neglected to perform your civic duty (seriously? You had one job...), here are the results. Elections were held in 33 states yesterday, but the major ones that had everyone holding their breath were the races for governor in Virginia and New Jersey. And, drumroll please…the Democratic nominees swept in both states!! Somewhere, a relieved Hillary Clinton

People are divided on Colin Kaepernick being named GQ’s ‘Citizen of the Year.’
In its annual "Men of the Year" issue, GQ Magazine named former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick its "Citizen of the Year," and boyyyyy, do people have feelings about that. As with all things related to Kaepernick, who rose to fame by leading the 49ers to a Super Bowl appearance and later gained notoriety for his on-field protests of police brutality and racism, the reaction to the news was predictably polarizing.

A 2017 Voter Guide For Millennials Who Procrastinated The Election

A 2017 Voter Guide For Millennials Who Procrastinated The Election
If you think that elections are like, so last year, you’d be very wrong. Elections are like my fuck buddy on the hockey team- constantly around and a necessary evil (cat’s gotta eat, amiright?). Anyways, what I’m eloquently saying is that elections happen pretty frequently throughout the nation, because there are like, a lot of elected officials. Obvi you can’t keep up with all of them, because ain’t nobody got time for that, but some of them are preettttty

Chechnya is still killing gay men. Now a prominent Russian singer may be dead.

Chechnya is still killing gay men. Now a prominent Russian singer may be dead.
In August, Russian singer Zelimkhan Bakayev traveled from Moscow to Chechnya to celebrate his sister's wedding. Then, he vanished. His online activity came to a halt; his Instagram account was deactivated. With few options and even fewer answers, his mother called on Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov last month to provide clarity, desperate to know what had happened to her son. How does a high-profile Russian singer simply ... disappear? It's likely, officials believe, Bakayev was swept up in Chechnya's

Everyone Is Freaking Out About Puerto Rico’s Whitefish Energy Scandal And Here’s Why

Everyone Is Freaking Out About Puerto Rico’s Whitefish Energy Scandal And Here’s Why
On September 20th, a whopping forty or so days ago, Hurricane Maria decimated Puerto Rico, leaving nearly the entire island without power. And like, that's where the situation still stands. 40 days without power or clean water. This is what we in the business call "a fucking disaster." Now, if this had happened anywhere that white people live in abundance on the mainland U.S., Donald Trump would have flown his fat ass out there and made sure the entire
