On Labeling Women 'Crazy' I've had to quit telling stories about crazy exes or women I've dated. The problem was that I started realizing that when my friends and I would talk about our crazy exes or what-have-you, more often than not, we weren't talking about ex-girlfriends or random dates who exhibited signs of genuine mental health issues. Now I did have a few where I would qualify my story with, "No, I don't mean 'we broke up and I can't be bothered to figure out where things went wrong, I mean that she was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder and was starting to show signs of genuine paranoia," but for the most part, crazy meant "acting in a way I didn't like."

'Django' an unsettling experience for many blacks Samuel L. Jackson says his character in "Django Unchained,"… (Jennifer S. Altman / For…) Tracey White's initial impression of "Django Unchained," Quentin Tarantino's new slave-era shoot-'em-up extravaganza, could be summed up in three words: smart, funny and ugly. Sitting through a recent screening in Beverly Hills, the L.A. costume designer was mostly absorbed and found herself laughing aloud at particularly outrageous moments.

Magic (paranormal) Magic or sorcery is an attempt to understand, experience and influence the world using rituals, symbols, actions, gestures and language.[1][2][3][4] Modern Western magicians generally state magic's primary purpose to be personal spiritual growth.[5] Modern theories of magic may see it as the result of a universal sympathy where some act can produce a result somewhere else, or as a collaboration with spirits who cause the effect.[6] The belief in and the practice of magic has been present since the earliest human cultures and continues to have an important religious and medicinal role in many cultures today.[7][8] Magic is often viewed with suspicion by the wider community, and is sometimes practiced in isolation and secrecy.[4] The word "magic" derives via Latin magicus from the Greek adjective magikos (μαγικός) used in reference to the "magical" arts of the Persian Magicians (Greek: magoi, singular mágos, μάγος), the Zoroastrian astrologer priests of the ancient Persian Empire.

Pubic hair is back. Your ugly vagina is normal and gorgeous. What, you don’t like your bits and twinkles? Have you seen the documentary film, The Perfect Vagina ? It’s certainly not for the faint of heart. I sat through the entire thing feeling squeamish, legs crossed tight, one hand over my eyes and a little curious about the look of my own undercarriage. Why all the tension and peculiar interest? We Do Abortions Here We do abortions here; that is all we do. There are weary, grim moments when I think I cannot bear another basin of bloody remains, utter another kind phrase of reassurance. So I leave the procedure room in the back and reach for a new chart. Soon I am talking to an eighteen-year-old woman pregnant for the fourth time.

How We Teach Our Kids That Women Are Liars The message that women are untrustworthy liars is everywhere in our culture—from TV and music, to politics and religion, says Soraya Chemaly. Two weeks ago a man in France was arrested for raping his daughter. She’d gone to her school counselor and then the police, but they needed “hard evidence.” So, she videotaped her next assault. White Girl Apathy Is Killing Culture Sigh, why do the days of rival female superstars dressing up like brides and sucking each other’s tongues on confetti-strewn platforms feel so far away? Now it's like you can't open a magazine without seeing white women in a pinnafore grinning inanely at you from within a sugar-coated, 1950’s cliché. Right...? Well according to Camille Paglia you can't, anyway. Her piece in The Hollywood Reporter suggests that the financially comfortable white female youth of today are having their integrity sapped out of them by an onslaught of twee, vacuous female role models like Taylor Swift and Katy Perry.

Anthroposophy Anthroposophy, a philosophy founded by Rudolf Steiner, postulates the existence of an objective, intellectually comprehensible spiritual world accessible to direct experience through inner development. More specifically, it aims to develop faculties of perceptive imagination, inspiration and intuition through cultivating a form of thinking independent of sensory experience,[1][2] and to present the results thus derived in a manner subject to rational verification. In its investigations of the spiritual world, anthroposophy aims to attain the precision and clarity attained by the natural sciences in their investigations of the physical world.[1] The Imperfect Perfect Penis. Not too long ago I wrote an article called ‘Your Ugly Vagina Is Normal & Gorgeous’ so I only thought it fair to explore some of the taboos of male genitalia—specifically the ‘size’ of penises. I was inspired to write this piece based on a BBC documentary called ‘My Penis and Everyone Else’s’. The size of one’s member isn’t necessarily a coffee table discussion, so how do we gauge how ‘big’ the problem is if men don’t want to talk about it?
