I went to my first gay bar when I was 18. This was also the night that I discovered Four Lokos when the gas station was sold out of the other disgusting malt liquor energy drinks. My gay male best friend and I split a can and, with our designated driver, drove an hour from […]

Never succumb to the tyranny of false eyelashes again.
Watching “Jeopardy” can be pretty intense if you’re an old bat like me who finds trivia and Alex Trebeck enticing, but watching this dude give a very wrong and very predatory answer is pretty awkward and squirm-inducing for anyone. If Tom really thinks the age of consent for girls is 12, then maybe we should […]

It’s been a tough week, kids. I’m imagining you sitting in front of an open refrigerator, the buzz of the light dulling your existential thoughts.
