Stop ruining sex

The feminism of my youth told girls we were badasses and we should own our sexual encounters. This new all-victim-all-the-time feminism is terrible, and destroying sex, my column in today’s NY Post.

Why leading in the polls doesn’t matter

Could Trump or Carson win the nomination? Maybe. Or maybe like the last few presidential elections, the polls will flip completely when it comes time to actually vote, my latest in Time.

Defending the Kardashians

In the week since Lamar Odom overdosed at a brothel outside Las Vegas, the Kardashians have received a disproportionate amount of the blame for it. I defend them in my latest for USA Today.

End Thursday NFL football

My column in the NY Post today calls for an end to regular Thursday night NFL games (and tells the story of me being an amazing football wife on Sundays).

Fox and Friends discussed my column on the show and compared me to the mom from Leave it to Beaver. It’s times like these I wish this blog was still active and not just somewhere I link my articles because long-time readers would know how CRAZY that is.

Advice for the modern woman

My column in the NY Post today is a riff on the ridiculous “Modern Man” column in the NYT but also my serious top-5 pieces of advice for women (which I not-so-secretly hope to turn into a book-using lots of supporting evidence I’ve collected-but first I have to stop having babies).

The rich and the poor

It’s unfair to call Brooklyn parents, who don’t want their kids to be zoned out of a popular but very overcrowded school, racist. They’re actually classist.

Poker is not a crime

Carly Fiorina and the presidency

My second piece of the day is on Carly Fiorina. She killed in the debate last night but it’s a tough road for non-politicians in presidential primaries. I used my 30k 1-year graduate degree from NYU to analyze this one.

Today I have my first piece in the Forward and it’s on Ann “how many f—king Jews do these people think there are in the United States?” Coulter.
