If I have my numbers right, the money he “saved” by eliminating health benefits for 9000 people is equivalent to the money he makes in 6 hours. Read more

Stop it. Stop attacking women for having opinions, speaking out, and trying to make things better. What the hell happened to Jezebel? I’ve been around here for years, and recently the rhetoric has just become so hateful and isolating. This is ridiculous.

This is the second day in a row that this site has thrown shade - or in this case blatant criticism - at Jameela Jamil.  She is one of the few celebrities using their platform to bring attention to how our culture judges women on their size and this site picks her to focus on?  Did she kick your puppy?

“has been co-opted recently by women of totally socially-acceptable, skinny shapes and sizes who think the movement is just for anyone who feels good or wants to show off their armpit hair”...You guys know that Jameela has a history of eating disorders since childhood, right? And that she was severely fat-shamed by Read more

Man, people really can’t win. Jameela Jamil has been saying mostly the right things for a long time, and backs it up by taking celebrities who hawk dangerous ideas and products to task. So she’s not the first to say these things, does that mean she shouldn’t say them? Or that she deserves this snotty recap of her Read more

“Jameela Jamil, patron saint of reminding the world that we live in a superficial and sexist society as if she were the first to discover that, is taking her “activism” in a slightly different direction.”

Yikes, why all the snark? Jameela makes mistakes and then apologizes and learns.  Isn’t that what we want from Read more

Something I think is kind of funny is that sometimes Halsey is authentically a dead ringer for the person Pink was pretending to be. I wonder if she has complicated opinions on that.

He lives with his mom, or his mom lives with him (semantics), because they both agree it’s what is needed for his mental health, and that  isn’t kind to be snarky about.

I once broke up with a guy because he said he wouldn’t watch a foreign film I recommended to him “because he didn’t like to read movies.” Read more

Never, ever underestimate a mediocre, rich white man’s desire to stare huge sums of money in the face, have people practically screaming “THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO TAKE MY MONEY FROM ME AND I WILL GLADLY GIVE IT TO YOU”...and then say “nah, I’ll do what I want even if it loses me money in the end.” Read more

While I see what you’re saying, this is far too good of an opportunity to pass up. I think it’s actually showing that “excellence” is a myth, because even AFTER achieving so much, they are STILL refused pay. If anything, using this as an example quells the stupid idea that somehow it’s all a meritocracy and women just Read more
