What was the last brand that disappointed you?

Not a massive disappointment, but Guerlain’s Matte Rouge Gs just rarely apply as smoothly or as flatteringly as I’d expect based on marketing and past experience with the Rouge G range. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Sunday Firesides: Compliment Deflection is Gift Denial

You hand someone a gift and they eagerly tear off the paper around the box. But as they examine the present that was wrapped inside, their smile quickly fades. “This isn’t right for me,” they say. “Here, you can have it back.” Ouch. Hopefully, you’ve never given this kind of response to receiving a tangible present. Yet you’ve likely done it when receiving another kind of gift: a compliment. The giving of all gifts requires effort, which in the case of a compliment represents the giver’s choice...

I am an 18-year-old transgender male, and I’m afraid I might be a pedophile. I have never touched or acted towards a child in an inappropriate way, nor do I intend to.

I’ve thought about it, and I wouldn’t want to touch a child inappropriately if I had a chance. It’s only in my fantasies that that might happen. Even then t...

Rose Byrne: ‘You understand why feminists are furious – we’re still talking about this?’

For the Bridesmaids star, playing Gloria Steinem in her 1970s battle for women’s rights has been a reminder that the same arguments are raging todayA few days before New York locked down and Broadway closed indefinitely, Rose Byrne was on stage in Brooklyn, doing Medea. It was a sold-out run, co-starring her husband, Bobby Cannavale, in an updated version of the Euripides classic. Already, in that first week of March, people were starting to not show up, and those who did were in an odd mood. “T...
