Here's the Creepy Industrial Formula for Making 'Natural' Simply Orange…

You know Simply Orange? That juice that's like Tropicana but more simple? You know, from the earth? Well, turns out, it's not made by a snowy-haired grandpa in an orchard of yesteryear, or squeezed betwixt the toes of some poly-questioning hippies who canvas for medical marijuana in their free time, it's made by the… » 2/01/13 7:00pm 2/01/13 7:00pm

Why Latinas Aren't Allowed to Get Angry

In a few very tangible ways, Latinas have it rougher than other folks. Not only do we often find ourselves in an ethnic/cultural/linguistic/racial minority, cuing others to pile on stereotypical expectations, but we're also female.

It's Still Not Okay for Ladies to Get Angry

Every lady who has ever cried in the middle of an argument or been told to "calm down" after raising her voice knows that the best way to get other people to dismiss you as irrational is to get visibly upset. I'd say that the pervasive universal brush-off of female anger is fucking bullshit, but I don't want anyone to… » 1/27/12 6:30pm 1/27/12 6:30pm
