Rudeness and the plastic face

I’ve been behind on updating here. My column in today’s NY Post is how we are ruder than ever and, if we’re honest with ourselves, we love it. My column last Monday, also in the Post, is how young celebrities are driving a spike in teenage plastic surgery. If you only read one paragraph of it, make it the last one.

People just keep having kids and nothing seems to stop them

My latest at the NY Post: Quantifying happiness, especially around having children, is harder than it seems.

How 2 Women Won an All-Male Debate

With all the men at the first two GOP debates, I argue on that it was two women who won the night: Carly Fiorina and debate moderator Megyn Kelly.

Pot and Jon Stewart, but not at the same time

I had a piece in the New York Post on Tuesday on how it’s way past the time that we decriminalize marijuana.

And today I’m on on how I won’t miss the partisan hack Jon Stewart.

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.

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.
