Why Girls Don’t Care If Guys Hate High-Waisted Shorts



Thought Catalog


The past few months my newsfeed has been overloaded with articles entitled, “Why Girls Should Stop Wearing High-Waisted Shorts,” or “The 12 Reasons Guys Hate Girls Who Wear Peplum Tops” Yeah, Hi I don’t give a shit what you think of my outfit because guess what? I don’t dress myself based on what makes you sexually aroused. I actually get up in the morning and put on what I LIKE simply because I LIKE IT. The funniest part about this is guys actually think we take their opinion into consideration on this. There are a lot of things I think about with men in mind, but when it comes to how I dress myself, absolutely not. So the influx of articles and bullet-ed lists about why we should stop dressing a certain way is not only a waste of your time it is also not going to work.

To The People Who Don’t Know How To Say No




Thought Catalog

I’ve been a believer of the “Yes Man” philosophy for a long time now. In short, a Yes Man is someone who never turns down an opportunity, often to win the favor of someone else. (It was exacerbated in a film that stars Jim Carrey, where he challenges himself to say yes to everything for an entire year. But of course, I have my own version inside my head. Check it out if you haven’t yet!) I’ve learned to say yes to almost every opportunity that has ever come my way, and at the same time, I’ve said yes to almost every favor that’s been asked of me. That attitude has brought me to different places, has introduced me to so many people, and has given me so much to experience. I’m that person. I’m the real-life, non-literal, yes man.

That same attitude, however, has turned me into a person…

“You’ve changed,” he said, with nervous laughter. I said, “I’ve been getting that a lot lately.” I smiled.

I was catching up with an old friend. The kind of old friend who is a mirror to the part of you that you only reserve for a select few; the kind of friend who shows you how far you’ve come and how far you still have to go. We chatted that afternoon in an airport coffee shop for four hours, catching up on two years, before he had to catch a flight again. Old friends are wonderful like that; we knew each other again instantly.

Whenever people tell us that we’ve changed or that we’re changing, there is a tendency to wonder whether we are changing for better or for worse. Because change isn’t usually only about bringing in new things, it’s often about leaving old ones…

5 Legal Rights Women Have That Men Don’t




Thought Catalog


I’ve had an opportunity lately to speak to a lot of feminists about why so many young women are rejecting feminism, and one theme that has come up repeatedly is that feminism is interested in equal rights for everyone. I have yet to meet a single feminist who was not completely astonished to discover that not only do women have equal rights to men, they actually have more rights than men. Most feminists will backpedal when confronted with that reality and try to justify why they are deserving of more rights than men, but the stark fact remains that in 2014, women do indeed have more rights than men. Here are five legally enshrined rights that women have and men do not:

1. Women have the right to genital integrity

Regardless of how you personally feel about the practice of circumcision (I personally find it barbaric, cruel and completely unjustifiable), the…

Messing With The Mystique

You have the right to ask questions.

You have the right to get answers.

You have the right not to like the answers.

To see your own publisher’s jaw drop? Phil Sexton recommends you ask him or her to let you review your book’s metadata.

Then, with smelling salts ready for your book’s sales people, tell them you’d like to know which BISAC codes are being used to categorize your title at retail and distribution points — both brick-and-mortar and online.

Many publishers are terrific. Some are so terrific they’d be delighted to find their authors adept at asking serious, smart questions about how their work is going into the marketplace.

Many other publishers might be less happy to have informed, intelligent inquiries coming at them from their authors.

No one is proud of this, but particularly over decades of corporate ownership of large…
