6 Ways Critics Of Political Correctness Have It Backwards
By J.F. Sargent
This is something I hear a lot these days -- sometimes it's angry bloggers complaining about "Social Justice Warriors" or "SJWs," sometimes it's Bill Maher, and sometimes it's even actual human beings with real thoughts and feelings. So I dug into some of the "PC Suckz00rz" arguments and quickly realized that not only are they wrong, they're exactly wrong, which is sort of impressive.

7 Hilarious Lies and Truths About Sex That Every College Kid Should Know
by Vianca Masucci
After a hoard of hillbillies flooded Target’s social media pages with their hate speech in response to the company’s decision to remove gender branding from their toy aisles, I decided that it was time to pay Target a visit. In solidarity, of course. As I entered the store—making sure to look away from the capitalist thirst trap that is the 1-3$ section—I saw a garden of 79$ mini-fridges and those colorful multi-head lamps that always seem cool until they start melting and droplets of plastic magma burn through your hands. This sale could only signify one thing: college time! I couldn’t help but reflect on my own college years…and all of the fucking fumbles, the sex stumbles, and the cunt calamities that salted my college years came to the forefront of my thoughts immediately.

We could ponder a litany of reasons why talented cooks are not flocking to the kitchens, but if you prefer to stop reading now, just reference Mathbabe’s entirely accurate post on labor shortages. 
Or, we could just pay cooks more. As it turns out, money is a very effective motivator, but restaurants employ two cannibalizing labor models based on fundamentally contrasting motivators: tipping and wages. I’ll take these on separately.

If 43% of young people aren’t straight or gay, why do only 2% identify as bi?
by stavvers
A YouGov poll was published the other day which revealed that 43% of 18-24 year olds don’t identify as completely straight, or completely gay, with pretty substantial chunks of other generations also being somewhere in the middle on the Kinsey scale (a third of 25-39 year olds identify this way; heck, even 21% of 60+ year olds don’t identify as exclusively straight or gay). Nowhere in the reporting did it mention how many people identified as bisexuals, preferring to focus on heteros and gay and lesbian people.

Being 23 Made Me Want a Boyfriend, And I Hate That
by Sophie Vickers
I’ve never been someone who needs a boyfriend, or wants one, particularly. Some people will no doubt think I say that to cover up my own, desperate craving for/inability to find a partner, but it’s not true.
