Trump Win Proves You Can't Be 'Your Own Kind' Of Feminist

Tara K. Reed

After the U.S. election, I wanted to call myself a feminist. Especially as friends wept about the uncertain (and certain) future of a Trump America. Still, I can't. Because feminism is hiding too many racists and bigots. People who hear "Be your own kind of feminist" and place emphasis on "your own kind."

Grace VanderWaal Deserved To Win AGT, But Should She Have?

Marcia Sirota

I think that Grace VanderWaal is really special, and I would have preferred it if the big success could have been delayed a bit, so that she could have maintained her innocence for just a little while longer and enjoyed the rest of her childhood. And is Las Vegas the place that any decent parent wants their twelve-year-old hanging out in?

Mansbridge's Exit Is CBC's Chance To Fix What's Wrong With TV News

Wade Rowland

My advice to CBC brass is to not pick a replacement for Mansbridge just yet, but go back to the drawing board and see if they can design a new way to report the news that will address real journalistic concerns facing the nation, rather than simply reapplying lipstick to a format that needs to be retired along with its icon.

It honestly feels a little strange attending a Kanye West concert in 2016, even for someone who has been to all of his tours, including the not-yet-famous rapper's "College Dropout" jaunt a dozen years ago when he brought along a huge live band led by also not-yet-famous pianist John Legend.

I'm Not An Awful Person For Wondering About Renee Zellweger's Face

Chastising people for natural curiosity while hauling out the same old tired observations about cultural sexism is, in my opinion, not useful. It's harmful. It adds nothing new to the conversation. And this conversation needs something new. You can do better.

Ali was one of the greatest human beings of all time. What made Ali great was not his boxing skills, chiseled looks or mercurial eloquence. What made him great was the nobility of his character; his courage to speak truth to power and stand up for what he believed in. No matter the cost.

Truth Is, People You Love Are Capable Of Shitty Things

I'm just asking for all of us to take a second and really analyze what's happening when we knee-jerk defend a celebrity. Do we truly think they're incapable of doing the act in question? Or do we just need to believe that we didn't invest our love and energy in a bad place? Only children think that someone they love is infallible because of that love. So let's grow up.

You know what? I'm freaked out about it, too. This is such a big issue in the world and it's easy to freak out about it. Deeply caring about this and wanting to do something to help is the first step in making a difference. So, let me start off by saying you're already making a difference because you care.

Fashionista Barbie: Why Mattel Got It All Wrong

Jennifer Pitt

I am not asking Mattel to raise my child with a healthy sense of self-esteem and value; it is my job to make sure of those things, and it is Mattel's job to sell toys - and with these dolls, I feel like those goals are aligning more than they ever did before, and I will continue to combat the body-negative messages sent to my daughter, because our daughters should be free to feel amazing about themselves, whether they fit into a mold or not.

Alice in Wonderland continues its comeback streak with Hollywood star Scarlett Johansson's audio version of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland via Audible Studios, an Amazon company. Audible says, "It tells the story of the young and imaginative Alice, who grows weary of her storybook, one 'without pictures or conversations,' and follows a hasty hare underground -- to come face to face with a host of strange and fantastic characters."

No one will be celebrating this, but 2016 marks the hundredth birthday of one of the most vicious show business gossip magazines ever published, edited by a Canadian named Stephen G. Clow. On his death, the US newspaper columnist Westbook Pegler called him "the originator of Saloon journalism." His colourful life can be used as a direct origin for the modern state of tabloid and celebrity journalism. So why don't more people know his story?

I've always found it interesting how J. Law's star power would go up the more immature and crass she behaved during public appearances and interviews, but I never felt compelled to write about it. Until a clip of her reaction to a struggling journalist surfaced this week following Sunday's Golden Globes.

Every Generation Had Its David Bowie Moment

Over his 50-year career, Bowie had an unparalleled ability to remain relevant by giving each generation its own moment with him. The 1970s kids got to enjoy his most prolific and influential period as one of the era's most definitive artists as it happened while the rest of us eventually discovered it as a pop cultural rite of passage, regardless of our entry point. He kicked off the decade a year early with his non-hippie hit "Space Oddity" before unleashing his Ziggy Stardust and Thin White Duke personae, collaborating with John Lennon, Lou Reed and Iggy Pop, and moving to Berlin to record his groundbreaking trilogy, "Low," "Heroes" and "Lodger."

We need to turn our fascination with the impact of concussion on elite athletes towards a mindful examination of the relevance of concussion in our everyday lives. While we are limited in stopping the progression of most brain-related diseases such as Alzheimer's and dementia, there are things that we can control.

There are literally thousands of film festivals worldwide and millions of people who attend them. Some consider it their annual holiday -- rather than visiting a destination to sight-see or going on a ski vacation, such aficionados go festivaling. But why just gaze at celebrities when you can actually experience what it's like to be famous?

You would expect the state forest officials to act swiftly and rescue the majestic animal immediately. But apparently that hasn't happened. In a petition submitted to the Prime Minister of India, Secretary of the Heritage Animal Task Force, Venkitachalam, has called for the Prime Minister of India to launch an investigation.
