The College Admissions Scandal Is Peak White Privilege — & It's Nothing New

I went to one of the top public high schools in Washington State — and most of the students were rich and white. My family was middle-class; my mother is an immigrant, my father was raised in poverty, and neither inherited wealth. And though I did grow up with economic privileges that I don’t seek to deny, the degree of wealth that surrounded me in my youth baffled me. Many of the families in my community had boats (some even private planes) and summer homes. If one of my classmates received a ...

Yes, It's Okay To Not Go To Prom

Prom season is here, which means that prom #content is everywhere. I’ve definitely awww -ed over some cute promposals, but with all the prom articles, Instagram posts, and ads everywhere, it can be hard to remember that prom is not actually mandatory.I skipped prom for a few different reasons: I’d been to two homecoming dances before, and while I’d had an okay time, it didn’t feel the need to repeat it with a much-pricier ticket (another reason I skipped). My friends were all going with dates, ...

Ask Agatha: “Help! I’m Dating A One Minute Man!” And Why You Should Never Date A DJ

  Laila from Pittsburgh, PA asks: I love him but the sex is trash. Since we stopped using condoms, he’s done before I even settle on the bed properly. And he’s usually rearing to go again pretty quickly but he doesn’t last much longer the second time either. This can’t be life.
