A Cliché of a Stereotype: Kathy Griffin and the Pathetic Fate of Liberal Cat Ladies

Which comes first, the liberal politics or the envious bitterness? It’s one of those chicken-or-the-egg questions of causality that psychologists should spend more time researching. It’s not that all liberal women are doomed to be lonely and unpopular spinsters, nor even that every cat lady is a Democratic voter. Yet there is an observable correlation […]

Lena Dunham Is Totally Triggered About Abortion Rights (Even Though She Had a Hysterectomy More Than Four Years Ago)

Nothing is ever private with Lena Dunham. Remember the 2014 memoir in which Lena described molesting her little sister? Remember how she described being raped at Oberlin College by a Republican, except that it never actually happened?
