5 Things I Wish My Mom Had Told Me About Sex

Recently I asked how you learned about sex:  From what I gathered from the people I spoke to, most of us did not get the “sex talk” from our parents. We talked about sex with our friends or older siblings, or just learned as we went along. This got me thinking: What would have been […]

When did you get the Safe Sex memo?

After reporting on, “Safe Sex: Are you having it?”, I started to think about the first time I received the message that if I was going to have sex- it NEEDED to be safe sex. And I remember getting that memo at 10 years old, listening to Salt-N-Pepa’s “Very Necessary” album. The last track was a […]

5 Things You Should Never Do on a First Date No Matter How Broke You Are

And that means coming up with creative things to do on a date that stay within our decreasing budget. As a single gal myself, I can definitely relate that! […]

Would You Date A Bisexual?

Before seeing clips from BIDEOLOGY, a documentary that asks women if they would date a bisexual man, I never considered how I would respond if a man I wanted to date revealed that to me. I never really considered a man being bisexual at all–women, of course–but a man? Never! Apparently, I wasn’t the only […]

Bisexuality Bias: What's With the Double-standard?

While off the top of my head I can name 5 different references of how our culture has embraced female bisexuality: 1. Madona and Brittany Spears kissing on MTV’s VMA’s 2. Katy Perry’s 2008 hit: “I Kissed a Girl” 3. Lady Gaga: During a Barbara Walters interview admitting, “I’ve certainly had sexual relationships with women” […]

3 Questions To Ponder When Dating Outside Your Religion

Apparently bi-religious relationships are on the rise—at least in my circle. Doing a totally (un)scientific survey among my six best girlfriends (four Christian, one Muslim, and one that believes, well, nothing) I asked them: Would a guy’s religion ever prevent you from dating him? I was surprised when all of them say no. One of […]

  • Remember #BringBackOurGirls? This Is What Happened In The 5 Months Since

    As I mentally prepare to watch and discuss ‪#‎GirlsRising‬ today– a film that portrays the lives of nine young girls from around the world describing the challenges they face being denied an education– I googled “chibok kidnapping nigeria."

    My new essay explores how Beyonce’s feminist stance in pop culture helped frame my own feminist awakening:

    “I am in my 30s and was emboldened by Beyonce’s feminist stance on that stage, and can’t help but believe that that image will be equally as powerful to young people who witness that moment, whose first engagement with feminism will be that moment. Maybe, just maybe, Beyonce will serve as the bridgebetween pop culture and feminists like bell and Barbara and Audre, maybe some young woman bobbing her head to ‘Blow’ or ‘Partition’ or ‘Flawless’ will do so while reading Ain’t I A Woman? or Homegirls or Sister Outsider.”
