Throughout history, women have been written out of cultural moments they helped shape. And now we have a new word for it Star Trek fandom has already made legendary contributions to popular culture, but its latest sweet encapsulation deserves special recording: in the dictionary. Earlier this month, a fan post on Tumblr from user @obstinatecondolement mourned the lack of acknowledgment given to women as the source of the series original popularity. They wanted to know when Star Trek stopped being perceived as light, fluffy, not-really-legitimate sci-fi that ~housewives~ liked and started being seen as serious nerd business that girls had to keep their gross cooties off? A reply repeated the question, but in regards to the Beatles. When did the …

Mindy Kaling Explains Why She’s Keeping The Identity Of Her Daughter’s Dad A Secret – Perez Hilton

Mindy Kaling is opening up, without revealing too much, about her daughter Katherine. The Late Night actress is sharing with The New York Times Magazine that she has no plans to reveal the paternity of her 18-month-old, at least until she can talk to her about it first.

I’m very impatient, and having a baby requires an amount of patience that I was worried …

The Saddest Celebrity Breakups Of All Time Betches

There’s nothing quite like getting far too invested in a celebrity relationship, am I right? The unadulterated joy you get from projecting your fantasies onto total and complete strangers. The inexplicable rush upon seeing photos of them on a red carpet, looking better than you probably will in your whole life. The perverse satisfaction derived from “insider news” from “trusted sources” that definitely wasn’t planted by either of their publicists. It’s one of the simple, incredibly invasive pleasures of living in the 21st century. But as the saying goes: celebrities, they’re just like us! Which means their relationships fail, even though we swore this time they wouldn’t. Except what’s different here is that the entire world watches and interjects their …

Side By Side Comparisons Of The Real Chernobyl Vs. The HBO Version Of It (20 pics)

#2 #3 #4 To this date, Chernobyl is the biggest nuclear accident to have occurred, or as others put it – the worst man-made accident. The true cost of it is still unknown. Many people were affected directly, but even more of them – indirectly. #9 #10 #11 #12 #13 #14 Interestingly enough, one of the most realistic depictions in the show was an elderly Bolshevik Zharkov. Although fictional, Zharkov perfectly conveys the Soviet politics and ideology. Moments after the disaster, he is encouraging his comrades to not spread “misinformation,” which basically means that no one should tell anything to the public. “No one leaves. And cut the phone lines. Contain the spread of misinformation,” he says in the show. …

I tried to sexually harass Siri, but all she did was give me a polite brush-off | Rhiannon Lucy Cosslett

Virtual assistants are millennial Stepford Wives. But perhaps theres an upside for real women, says Guardian columnist Rhiannon Lucy Cosslett Hey Siri, show me your tits, is not something I ever thought Id say, especially not while sitting in an empty kitchen while wearing fluffy slippers. I have many hobbies, but sexually harassing disembodied digital entities is not one of them, even in the interests of journalistic research. But having read that a coded female by default (i.e. most of them) were reinforcing gender stereotypes that portray women as subservient for example, by responding to sexual harassment in a tolerant, even coquettish, manner I thought I had better conduct an experiment. Hey Siri, wanna fuck? I was trying to do …

The long read: When she arrived in the US as a 10-year-old refugee, Dina Nayeri found it hard to fit in. But that all changed when she hatched a plan to get into Harvard by becoming a taekwondo champion When I was 13, three years after arriving in the US with my mother and brother, I devised a plan to get into the Ivy League. I was a refugee kid with no money and I lived in Iran, she had done horse-riding and tennis. But then the revolution happened, and her sporty body was draped and forgotten. Banned from public exercise, she took to pounding her ass against walls to get that chic, saddle-flattened effect of the late 70s. Sometimes …
