As a man allow me to mansplain the use of mansplaining in this article: Sometimes it’s funny to just toss it around, especially in an article about the Bachelorette.

This is a great piece and I think speaks to the larger problem of guru culture. The Yoga Is Dead Podcast did an episode on it that would likely resonate with people who struggle with the desire to find that one person who will make everything possible and then find themselves either disappointed when the guru is trash Read more

Im with Shannon. I've watched the challenge since the beginning. 6 wins, spin offs or not is 6 wins. That's like saying the Lakers championship doesn't count because it was in the bubble. It still counts. He was the best out of the bunch. A win is a win.

This latinoamericana grammar nerd thanks you for using Latine instead of Latinx! 

This move had all White casting directors and it shows. The real neighborhood is brimming with Black Latinos but the main cast Black Latinos are absent. When they need someone to dance in the background though....

At the end of the day I'm thankful this beautiful show will be available for the whole world to enjoy. Very excited to see it in a theater and pull my bandera out of my bra during "Carnaval del Read more
