Meet Tiffany Cabán, The AOC-Endorsed Queens DA Candidate Who Supports Sex Workers

Queens district attorney candidate Tiffany Cabán has a big overarching goal: to get people to stop thinking about criminal justice as a punitive system. But to achieve the larger goal, Cabán has to start small, which means knocking on as many doors as possible to ask registered Democrats for their vote in the biggest of New York City's five boroughs, which has over 2.3 million residents.We met up with Cabán in Ridgewood, Queens, a diverse neighborhood in the throes of gentrification.

AOC & Elizabeth Warren Had Some Thoughts About That Game Of Thrones Ending

Photo: Mark Makela/Getty Images. Our watch has ended, but that doesn't mean we're anywhere near done dissecting the Game of Thrones series finale. After nearly a decade, the hit HBO fantasy show came to a close leaving the entire fandom divided. One of the main reasons? GoT 's treatment of women, particularly in its last season. As Refinery29's Ariana Romero argues, the show was always destined to fail its female characters — which has made fans Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Eliza...

What Does “Harm To Ongoing Matter” In The Mueller Report Mean, Exactly?

The Mueller report was finally released to the public today and while it had a number of very interesting revelations, it also contained some heavy redactions, including some pages that were almost completely blacked out. These redactions were justified on the basis that whatever information they were covering up could cause "harm to ongoing matter."The internet was quick to pick up the phrase and run with it, deciding that "harm to ongoing matter" was a really great band name in addition to a ...

How Black-Asian Conflict Plays Out In New York City's Elite High Schools

This year, out of the 895 students accepted to Stuyvesant High School, New York City’s most selective specialized high school, only seven were Black, less than 1% of this year’s incoming freshman class. Meanwhile, 33 Latinx students (3.7%), 194 white students (21.7%), and 587 Asian students (65.6%) were also offered spots.

The GOP Treats Climate Change Like A Joke. AOC Just Called Them On It.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to make something clear: The U.S. will inevitably end up paying for the effects of climate change, which already disproportionately impact marginalized communities.

Sean Duffy said Democrats are only interested in helping "rich liberals" and called Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal "absolutely outrageous." The landmark proposal seeks to address ...

Both the coalition government and the center-right opposition party supported the move."I strongly believe that the vast majority of legitimate gun owners in New Zealand will understand that these moves are in the ...

Ivanka Trump Is Acting. AOC Is Not. That's A Key Difference In Their Body Language.

Earlier this week, sentient skim vanilla latte with no whip Ivanka Trump and straight-talking socialist/right-wing obsession Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez clashed on whether Americans have the right to jobs that pay a living wage. The millionaire who used to hang out with Paris Hilton in St. Tropez says absolutely not; the former bartender from the Bronx who lost her father to cancer and whose family went into debt, their house on the verge of foreclosure, says absolutely yes.In a recent interview w...

What Ivanka Trump Was Really Like In High School

Long before she was an adviser to the President of the United States, Ivanka Trump was just your average teenage daughter of a billionaire, attending an elite East Coast boarding school. Although the Trumps are not necessarily known for their modest taste, a teenaged Ivanka actually seemed pretty normal, as depicted in a feature in Seventeen magazine from more than 20 years ago.In the late nineties, conspicuous consumption wasn’t really a thing for the teenagers I knew in the largely white sub...
