    "Teen Vogue takes teen girls seriously and understands that style and substance aren’t mutually exclusive," says the former Democratic presidential nominee. Teen Vogue's "woke" coverage of sociopolitical issues over the past two years has drawn ire from critics (Tucker Carlson among the most vocal), but with its latest cover star, the glossy just proved that its expanded focus is more than just a phase. The title secured Hillary Clinton as a guest editor and cover star for a special edition of the Conde Nast publication, which hits newsstands Dec. 5. Additionally, it was announced that she will serve as the...

    There’s a persistent trope in science fiction and fantasy about a society consisting solely of women. It’s a peaceful and prosperous society, free from all violence. There may be some female warriors, who are somehow better than all male warriors everywhere despite having no real pressure or battles to harden themselves on. As a female reader with a strong taste for rational thinking, I am begging authors to stop doing this. Every female over the age of seven knows that a planet full of only women would not be peaceful. Every female Odd will picture this situation as The Special...

  • Girls do not like to date nice boys

    They just don't. In my high school years, I was Richie Cunningham. The earnest young boy from "Happy Days" who always was looking to please others, especially the adults in his life. As a result, we were walked all over, taken advantage of and subsequently, not dated by girls. Now Richie Cunningham might have had a girlfriend or two during the fictitious "Happy Days" run but in my real-life Richie Cunningham phase, I had zero girlfriends. I did have several dates that went disastrously wrong because I thought dating was all about being a nice guy. It wasn't. During that...

    Saying that Girl Scouts is “no longer a compatible partner in helping us form young women with the virtues and values of the Gospel,” the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas is severing ties with the organization and switching its support to a Christian-based scouting program. “I have asked the pastors of the Archdiocese to begin the process of transitioning away from the hosting of parish Girl Scout troops and toward the chartering of American Heritage Girls troops,” Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann said in a statement released Monday.

    TORONTO — Girl Guides of Canada will not approve any new travel to the United States, describing the decision as difficult but necessary to protect its members. The organization released a statement Monday saying it decided to cancel future trips due to uncertainty over whether all of its members would equally be allowed to enter the U.S. It said the organization values providing safe, inclusive and accepting experiences to its members, including when travelling. Although the U.S. is a "frequent destination'' for its members, the organization said all trips including travel that requires connecting through an American airport will not...

The teen then later added, “Babe we can try again if you still want to be with me.”

    Heather Leavell, a fourth-generation Girl Scouts troop leader and proud mother of an 8-year-old Brownie, could not sleep the night after she found out the Girl Scouts would be marching in Friday’s inaugural parade for President-elect Donald Trump. How, she wondered, could an organization that preaches respect and honesty and that seeks to empower young girls march for a man who has repeatedly demeaned women and bragged about groping their genitals? “My blood was boiling,” said Leavell, a 43-year-old Melrose resident. “My whole life, I’ve been very proud to be a Girl Scout. But if they march in this inauguration,...

    The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has ruled that Muslim parents in Switzerland will have to send their children to attend mixed-gender swimming lessons, despite conceding that religious freedoms were being interfered with, on the grounds that mixed-gender swimming lessons were part of a ‘full school curriculum’ and the children’s ‘successful integration’ into society. According to the BBC, the case was initiated by two Swiss nationals of Turkish origin from Basel who wouldn’t send their teenage daughters to compulsory mixed-gender lessons. Swiss education officials, however, said that exemptions were available only for girls who had reached the age of...

    The pickup line to reel in a catch. It's a classic when it comes to catching the attention of the opposite sex. There are pickup lines in every Angler walk of life. So, I asked some of my fishing buddies about some of the best lines they've heard of (or used). These guys are serious anglers that they started telling me about different types of fishing lines used for different fishes, literally. Guess that's why they're single, or haven't been on dates in quite a while. However, once I explained what kind of "line" I meant, they came up with...

    LONDON, Oct 11 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - One girl under 15 is married every seven seconds, according to a report by Save the Children released on Tuesday, with girls as young as 10 married off - often to much older men - in countries including Afghanistan, Yemen, India and Somalia. Early marriage not only deprives girls of education and opportunities but increases the risk of death or childbirth injuries if they have babies before their bodies are ready. "Child marriage starts a cycle of disadvantage that denies girls the most basic rights to learn, develop and be children," said Save...

    A school has been criticised after punishing a whole cheerleading squad after a male student said he was distracted by their short skirts. The student at Timpview High School had “impure” thoughts after seeing the squad in their uniforms, People reports, and so his mother wrote to the school and complained. After the formal complaint was made, rather than helping the male student to deal with the thoughts, the Utah school’s administrators appear to have punished the whole cheerleading squad. Administrators told the cheerleading coach at the school, who told the 44-strong cheerleading squad that they should not wear their...

Not a good look HuffPost and not very journalistically sound either.

    One of the most oft-heard claims made by supporters of Hillary Clinton is what a positive role model she would be for young girls as president. They say: "Then, my daughters will know that nothing is to too great for them to aspire to. A woman can indeed be president of the United States." So goes the argument. According to the latest Quinnipiac University poll, women will vote for Clinton by 60 percent to 36 percent, a margin of 24 percent. In the last presidential election, the margin was 10 percent. If the polls are accurate concerning the lopsided female...
