Target's Only Male Plus-Size Model Says His Wife Gave Him the Confidence to Take the Job

Scattered among rumors about Hollywood’s A through D-listers on People’s “News” section are human interest stories that I generally avoid. Today there was a headline about sisters meeting each other for the first time at 9 and 10 years old (too boring), some dog who found a home after losing an eye (too sad), and a… »10/09/15 6:20pmToday 6:20pm

Watch Fox and Friends Struggle to Grasp Gender-Neutral Toy Marketing

Target has decided to opt for more gender-neutral labeling in the way it sells toys and other kids’ products. As a segue into their coverage of this shift, Fox & Friends asks a weighty question: “Have the P.C. police gone too far?” They raise an excellent point—the most pressing issue facing America is shaving two… »8/10/15 4:20pm8/10/15 4:20pm

Is Target's 'Trophy Wife' Shirt Sexist Or Just Ugly?

Target is currently in hot water for selling an ugly shirt that might also be sexist. (Again.) The shirt is sold in the store’s women’s juniors section and features the word ‘TROPHY’ printed in a large, nearly-Beyoncé font.

Forget Redefining Beauty: This Fat Chick Just Wants Some Nice Clothes

Greetings from a bunker, where I have stockpiled dried apricots and seltzer and plan to wait out everything to do with this #ImNoAngel ad campaign. Good try, Lane Bryant, but no number of beautifully shot images of Ashley Graham will erase years of trying on asymmetric polyester garbage at your stores, hunting for… »4/08/15 4:45pm4/08/15 4:45pm

I Tried on Target's New Plus Size Line So You Don't Have To

Meh. That's what I give Target's new AVA+VIV plus-size collection. To me the new AVA + VIV line is just more of the same of what I've come to expect of plus-size clothing. For the most part designers seem to think that all we plus-size ladies deserve is basics and that we should be happy to even get anything. A video »3/20/15 2:30pm3/20/15 2:30pm

Target Now Sells Fifty Shades Cock Rings Next to Kids' Toothbrushes

That's why they put all of your needs into one place. They're always thinking of you. »1/16/15 5:40pm1/16/15 5:40pm

​I Pulled a Black Friday All-Nighter & Lived to Tell the Tale (Barely)

It's Thanksgiving evening, roughly 7:30 p.m. "Are you sure you don't want to bail?" my mother-in-law asks, with barely concealed concern, as we approach the exit for the Secaucus, New Jersey Walmart. I promise I'll text updates and swear that if something goes hideously awry and I'm marooned in a sea of big-box… »12/03/14 2:10pm12/03/14 2:10pm
