He realized that the people in Whoville do not need fancy decorations or gifts to celebrate Christmas. Christmas is celebrated in their hearts and their spirit, so the Grinch’s heart grew 3 sizes because he understood the true meaning of Christmas

Swift sets herself apart from all of these different subsets of popular American performance and culture. And the truth is that twerking is a part of that culture because Black American culture is still American. Keeping that in mind, I would have found it more problematic had she not included twerkers; especially given all of the mainstream coverage the dance has garnered recently via her pop star colleagues, I think it would have represented a devaluing and erasure of Black female art forms.

THIS. 

I am not a native american like, AT ALL (my last name is WHITE mmmkay?) but like, everyone … we just have to admire how badass the war bonnets are from afar. And I know that knowing just what badass things they’re for makes them like even more tempting to wear but like, YOU CAN’T. 

Go invent another badass hat, because this one’s not yours.

Fox is looking at all mass shootings involving four or more victims — that’s the standard FBI definition. Mother Jones, by contrast, had a much more restrictive definition, excluding things like armed robbery or gang violence. They were trying to focus on spree killings that were similar in style to Virginia Tech or Aurora or Newtown. The definitions make a big difference: On Fox’s criteria, there’s no uptick. On Mother Jones’, there’s a clear increase.

On MTV’s news site, the post-VMA headline was “Beyonce’s 2014 VMA Performance: Fearless, Feminist, Flawless, Family Time.” In my day, those words would never, ever have been strung together. (via Beyonce’s VMA Performance: Feminism’s Most Powerful Pop-Culture Moment | New Republic)

whitehouse:

Did you think she was done for the day? Here’s Betsey Stevenson on America’s place among developed nations in female labor force participation, and how we can improve it.
ilovecharts:

Ok, so things are improving on many fronts when it comes to women in the workforce, but we’re slipping compared to other countries when it comes to female labor force participation.
Since 1990, the U.S. has dropped from 7th to 16th in that category among advanced democracies—that’s in the bottom third. In fact, we’re the only developed country that does not guarantee paid maternity leave.
But with the right policy changes, we can jump back up the leaderboard and help expand opportunity for millions of women. Paid leave and other policies that enable workers to better balance work and family obligations could help boost female labor force participation. One study estimated that U.S. female labor force participation would be 6.8 percentage points higher if the U.S. had implemented a suite of family-friendly policies. (cc Republicans in Congress)
