Queen Sugar Is Groundbreaking Without Breaking Me

Being Black is great. I know this from personal experience. And as nearly everyone knows, being Black in America is also not so great. In fact, for every moment of pride, joy, and resilience, there are even more traumas, injustices, and heartbreaks waiting to be permanently embedded into our identity. Any film, movie, book, or other medium that seeks to tell a story of Blackness is incomplete if it doesn’t address both sides. But for the sake of packing a punch, stories about Black people rely ...

Early-season hikes near Mount Baker? Try lovely Baker Lake

Hikes at this time of year can be tricky: Higher elevations are likely still buried in snow. Fallen trees or rocks may block passage, or sections of trail may have sloughed off and fallen down hillsides. But here’s an easy hike with smashing views of an iconic North Cascades mountain.

The Reassuring Message Everyone Who Takes Antidepressants Needs To Hear

So This Is What You Should Do If Your Lipstick Breaks

Here's a sad fact of life: We will all, at one point or another, suffer from the death of a lipstick. Just when we think we've found the exact shade for our skin tone, the stick will break off, the lid will get loose and paint the insides of our purse, or the lipstick will melt when we accidentally leave them in the car.While it might be quicker to run to the drugstore and replace your beloved product, it's not always convenient. (Even more so if the product is limited-edition or only available...

Proof That Beyoncé Never Met a Wind Machine She Didn't Like

It's very rare to see Beyoncé without her waist-grazing locks. That's because the extra length allows her to get the hair whip effect when she's belting out the lyrics to her No. 1 hits. Take a look back at Mrs. Carter's best performance hair moments. Goodness knows she can flip, whip, shake, and blow her mane like no other. Perhaps you'll be inspired to do some hairography of your own with "Grown Woman" on repeat.

Bob Saget Thinks He Resembles The Lady On The Cholula Hot Sauce Bottle

Ask any Millennial walking down the street and chances are good they'll say they miss the 90s. There are so many highlights from that decade that we find ourselves longing for on a regular basis, but one that stands out is the cheesy family sitcoms. Who doesn't miss Boy Meets World, Step By Step, and Home Improvement? Who doesn't wish they could still admire Uncle Jesse's hair on a regular basis or see Danny Tanner's comforting dad face all the time? Well, Bob Saget, the actor who portrayed Dan...

I Came Out As Queer 2 Years Ago — But I Didn't Leave My Husband

My ex-husband and I used to take turns selecting films for our movie nights. His choices ran the gamut, and so did mine — until my curiosity was piqued by Netflix’s "Gay and Lesbian" section. Before long, I was searching exclusively within that area, and our queue was glutted with films about queer women: But I’m A Cheerleader, Imagine Me and You, Fingersmith, The Incredibly True Adventure of Two Girls in Love. The list went on.For someone chronically guilty of overthinking her actions, it’s no...

A Dildo Shaped Like The Babadook Exists & It's Terrifying

If there's one thing we can be sure of in life, it's probably that if something has one dimension that's longer than the other, someone will design a dildo based on it. Especially if it's accidentally been featured in Netflix's LGBTQ section. At least that's how the Babadook dildo was born, Out reports.Babadook is a 2014 horror movie about a monster hiding in a boy and his mom's home. But after Netflix users found it under the LGBTQ category, they rewrote it to tell the story of a man who's too...

These Boy Band Songs Really Make Us Miss Boy Bands

Boy bands are The Bachelorette of the music industry. Just like the famous dating show, in most boy band songs, a group of men compete for the same woman and express their feelings in platitudes. Most importantly, boy bands’ music videos are just as entertaining as the weekly, two-hour sagas on the Bachelorette.I propose that all male music artist first have to pass through the ranks of a boy boy before emerging triumphant with solo careers.
