I Thought I’d Be A Ballerina. Now, I’m Pregnant, Publishing A Memoir During A Pandemic, And Grateful.

A year and a half ago, my husband and I went to Paris for a week to take a break from the fertility treatments we’d recently started. I felt sad and frustrated and lucky to have a literal vacation from failing to get pregnant. Meanwhile in New York, my agent was preparing to submit the memoir I’d recently finished to publishing houses. So I walked around Paris and waited: for an email from my agent to say the book was ready, for the drugs I was taking to make my body work the way I wanted. One c...

Mittlerweile bist du es gewöhnt, deine Hände täglich unzählige Male mit Seife und Wasser für mindestens 20 Sekunden zu waschen.

My hands are dry, my forehead in flaky, and my lips are super dry. This staying inside thing is just not working out for me. I can’t figure out exactly why my skin is so dry lately!

Fox News purportedly bracing for “legal bloodbath” after peddling coronavirus misinformation

Fox News is purportedly doing serious preemptive damage control after misleading its millions of viewers about the severity of the coronavirus pandemic. Fox Business recently announced it had “parted ways” with homophobic prime time host Trish Regan, who famously called the coronavirus a politically motivated “scam” by Democrats on her March 9 show. The network said it wished Regan all the best and that her firing was part of its effort to “continue our reduced live primetime schedule for the f...

Rebecca Minkoff has some advice for e-commerce companies right now

When Rebecca Minkoff first moved to New York City, the then-18-year-old was making $4.75 an hour. “I just kept working for this designer and someone was telling me what to do every day. I just didn’t like that. And I thought if I’m going to work as hard, it’s going to be for myself and I want to call my own shots,” she said. “I didn’t want to be told what to do, frankly.” Self-employment for Minkoff turned out just fine; in 2001, she redesigned the iconic “I Love New York” shirt and it appear...

What’s the origin of the ‘well-dressed, articulate, educated gay man’ stereotype?

From Stanford in Sex and the City to George in My Best Friend’s Wedding and even David in Schitt’s Creek, we’re overwhelmed with stereotypical depictions of gay men as witty, well-groomed, and well-spoken (and, unfortunately, disproportionately white). But as one Redditor recently asked, where does that trope even come from? from askgaybros Other Reddit users readily replied with theories. “Gay men from the upper class or bourgeoisie were more likely to be ‘out’ for c...

It was the week before the Mike Tyson versus Evander Holyfield rematch at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.I'd been at the first fight when Holyfield had pulled off a major upset by stopping Tyson in the eleventh round, even though beforehand there was a concern that Evander might actually die in the ring.

Is a Prediction an Intention?

If you predict what you expect to happen next in the world or in your life, does that mean that you’re also putting out an intention to make it so? Here’s how I like to frame this: A prediction is an acknowledgement and mental exploration of an existing offer. This could be an offer from reality, from other people, or from ourselves.An intention is an offer itself, which could be an existing offer; a counter-offer to an existing offer; or a fresh, new offer.
