Sorry, men of Clear Lake, WI, I’m taken.

I’ve got a piece in the NY Post today on my personal experience with online privacy being an illusion. Last week, someone used my FB pictures on an online dating site.

Americaversary 2015

My column in the New York Post today celebrates my 37th American year. If you buy the paper, you get this bonus shot of me on my first day of school on page 23:

That’s not racist

The news around the Iran deal bumped my column to Thursday this week, but I’ve got a piece in the NY Post today on how we should save our “that’s racist” accusations for things that are, y’know, actually racist. Kylie Jenner’s hair and Instagram filters don’t qualify.

Selfies and babies

Yesterday I had a piece in the New York Post defending selfies, comparing them to other modern conveniences like Seamless or Fresh Direct.

Today I’m on, talking about the time in my not-so-distant past where I was 100% sure I didn’t want children. There’s been a ton of young women writing lately on their decision to be child-free and I remind them that people change, situations change and don’t make rash decisions.

The conspiracy is large/Some news

I have a column in the NY Post today on the trans-fat ban and how it’s totally unnecessary and only encourages the conspiracy theorists who believe that corporations are trying to kill us for the *obvious* profit it would bring them.

While this piece, (and my last one on Dolezal), on the Post Opinion page may not look different than previous ones I’ve written there, they’re actually my first columns as a weekly columnist on the page. My pieces will run primarily on Mondays.

Ageism in Hollywood

I have a piece in the New York Post wondering if ageism in Hollywood is the fault of the patriarchy or the bottom line. If women oppose films where the romance is between an older man and a much younger woman, why do they persist in seeing these movies?

Don’t call me “mom.”

Unless I’m actually your mother, you can’t refer to me as “mom.” My latest in the New York Post.

My March

I had such a busy March I completely failed at linking all the stuff I’ve written here.

I had a piece in the NY Post arguing that having the option to be a stay-at-home mom is a luxury. I was on Fox&Friends talking about it and you can see the clip here.

On I provided guidelines for birthday wishes in the social media age (hint, you can’t just always leave a Facebook wall comment)

Another piece in the NY Post about what to say to a son after the UVA story.

And, I had a fun piece in the NY Observer with 5 tips for lazy parents visiting Disney World.

You’re not allowed to long for Manhattan anymore but I still do in my piece today in the New York Observer.

Russian-born and watching The Americans

Hacked by ISIS

On Sunday the website for Fix Beauty Bar, the business I co-own, was hacked by someone purporting to be ISIS. Yes, that ISIS. My story in today’s New York Post.

This is the screenshot of the hacked site:
