Golden Girls Cafe Opening In Manhattan — Time For A Road Trip!

You all know what that means, right? Matching “Thank you for being a friend” t-shirts and “Picture it! Sicily, 1932!” tote bags for everyone! Wheeee! Oh, and cheesecake. So much cheesecake!


Speaker At Bernie Sanders Rally Calls Hillary A "Democratic Whore"

When I saw the trending hashtag #DemocraticWhores, I got really excited, thinking maybe Democrats were all strutting around today in those sensational boots Julia Roberts wore way back in Pretty Woman. Nancy Pelosi could rock those boots, don’t you think?

What You Need To Know About The Buzzfeed Memos On Donald Trump

Good lord, I don’t even know how to start this.

No one needs wasp poop balls in their vagina, okay? Okay.

Don't Put Old Wasp Poop In Your Va-Jay-Jay, Okay?

Apparently, there is a type of wasp that deposits its larvae inside oak trees, where they grow inside the wood, nourished on oak bark and wasp poop. You can collect these wasp incubators — called oak galls — and do stuff with them. The Etsy seller says they’re good for all kinds of “traditional” medicinal uses like tightening the vagina and uterus after childbirth. THIS IS A BAD IDEA!

It’s possible that the use of IUDs and other long-acting reliable contraceptives (LARCs) may be contributing to a rise in the sexually transmitted infection rate.

IUDs Aren't Exactly The Best, Follow-Up Study Shows

Trump & North Korea: In The Words Of Danny Glover, 'I'm Too Old For This Sh*t'

I have zero interest in reliving the years of mutually assured destruction that characterized U.S.-Russian relations during my childhood. And I definitely don't want to do it with Kim Jong Un, who is far less level-headed than Mikhail Gorbachev. And I sure as hell don't want to do it with Donald Trump.

Donald Trump's Troubling Climate Change Questionnaire

The incoming Trump administration is taking aim at climate change — and probably not in the good way.

Kourtney Kardashian Detox Plan: Just Say NO

Kourtney Kardashian is a good source of entertainment and style inspiration. However, her detox diet sounds stupid and probably bad for you and also won’t detox you because you are not toxic.

Texas, like the rest of the US, has a near-zero complication rate for abortions. But apparently it's still... dangerous somehow?

Here's What Went Down In Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt

Yes. That’s right. Texas passed laws to allegedly make abortion safer when abortion is already nearly perfectly safe. Our good friend Justice Breyer honed in on this yesterday, when he asked the lawyer defending the law how often Texas patients are transferred from abortion provider to hospital.
