Once again, as they have for several years running, women cleaned up at the Hugos, a premiere industry award for science fiction and fantasy.
Does it sometimes seem like the entire internet is nothing but a vast blank plane populated entirely by hip tech bros trying to sell you a seemingly fancy mattress? That’s because it is!
Back in May, Google pledged to change its digital ad programs to prevent crisis pregnancy centers—the most evasive trick of the anti-abortion movement—from targeting pregnant people with misleading honeypot ads. Apparently there’s still a loophole these organizations can use to continue their bullshitting.
I don’t know when this specific chair became the go-to chair of every casual dining establishment in America. I don’t know what they’re called—“bistro” chairs, maybe? What I do know is that I hate them, and I dread their very sight.

In January, New York State passed the Child Victims Act, legislation which dramatically expanded the ability of victims of childhood sexual abuse to sue. The law took effect just yesterday—and hundreds of people have already filed.
Today, U.S. Representative Steve King, whose greatest hits include an absolutely astonishing array of real bad shit, expressed doubt that without rape or incest, humanity would even exist at all. Truly there is no amount of money you could pay me to take a look inside this man’s head.
Labor Day doesn’t arrive for another two weeks, but summer is essentially over, and corporate America is circling its corpse. By which I mean that it’s already pumpkin spice time.

Diana, the musical about the Princess of Wales that debuted earlier this year at San Diego’s La Jolla Playhouse, is coming to Broadway in March 2020.
Apple has released a trailer for The Morning Show, a new prestige drama about morning television. This first glance looks maybe a little too straightforwardly serious, considering that the entire vibe of morning shows is a fever-dream blend of vicious competitiveness and terrifying cheerfulness. However, I remain…
Robert Ballard, the man who found the Titanic, is now searching for Amelia Earhart’s missing plane.
In wonderful news for me, personally, and the rest of the world too, there’s a documentary in the works about the life of Jackie Collins, bestselling novelist and sister to Joan. The 1980s nostalgia is finally paying off!
It’s only the beginning of August, but unfortunately, that’s the beginning of the end for summer. It’s already “back to school” promo time. Before the sun disappears entirely, let’s all follow the example of my new hero, Tissy the swimming Maine Coon, and get the hell into the swimming pool while we still can.
Every year, I begin summer with lots of grand plans for all the wonderful things I’m going to read outside in the perfectly burning sunshine, or perhaps inside during a picturesquely torrential thunderstorm. I imagine late nights with page turners and slow afternoons with thought-provoking tomes. But not long after…
Half a million kids could lose their automatic qualification for free school lunches, thanks to the Trump administration’s latest attempt to “tighten” food stamp rules (read: strangle much-needed help to, literally, children without enough to eat).
Four organizations have banded together to purchase the historically invaluable but long difficult-to-access photo archives of Ebony and Jet magazines, with plans to make them available to researchers and ultimately the public.
Josh Harris, who wrote the incredibly influential evangelical purity culture book, I Kissed Dating Goodbye before later renouncing it and admitting that yeah, premarital dating is probably good, has announced that he is getting divorced and, furthermore, that he has ceased to be what he recognizes as Christian.
