A watershed moment in womyn's history: babyfaced Orange Is The New Black actor, Matt McGorry announces he is a feminist. We can credit this declaration to his personal edification. "I'm embarrassed to admit that I only recently discovered the ACTUAL definition of "feminism," he wrote in a Facebook post to his followers today. "The fact that the term is sometimes clouded with anything other than pure support and positivity in our society is very tragic," he continued. " I believe in gender equality. Being a feminist is for both women AND men. I AM A FEMINIST."

Presidential hopeful and well-documented maniac Sen. Rand Paul was all set to appear on an episode of Parks and Recreation but mysteriously pulled out at the last possible second. "I think he thought we were making fun of him, or something, which we were not, at all," said the show's co-creator, Mike Schur. Aw, cute. Rand Paul is afraid. Very afraid. Of Parks and Rec?

Are we really giving an ally a hard time for not understanding the literal definition of feminism and using societal cues from those around him to inform his idea of what it means? Yes, that was a mistake, but he rectified it, and is doing his best to try and be a good ally now.
