You are the worst type of feminist, the one that doesn't even understand what feminist means and just like to give yourself a cool label. Feminism doesn't mean just blindly supporting anything any woman does purely because she's female. We fight against the inequity we receive in society. No true feminist would… » 11/16/11 7:48pm 11/16/11 7:48pm

I currently have a laptop, but it was a tossup between this and a desktop. A desktop is easier to upgrade, it gives you a bigger monitor, it's cheaper for the same specs, and I prefer having a full-sized keyboard I can move around (wireless!) rather than using a laptop keyboard.

Letter From the Ex-Editor: It's a Long Way to Tipperary, It's a Long Way …

Well. So that happened. Interestingly, it's all basically true: This is my last Gawker post; whatever direction the site takes in the future, I won't be along for the ride. So just a few quick words on my way out, if I may. My year here has been a blast — the most fun I've ever had in a job and, in the last four… » 7/03/06 12:20pm 7/03/06 12:20pm

Actually, It Seems Mimi Valdes Won't Be Working at 'Vibe' Much Longer

Earlier today we skeptically noted what seemed to be an unfounded rumor, that Vibe editor-in-chief Mimi Valdes, along with much of her staff, was being canned from the urban music mag. We asked if anyone could provide any word on what was going on over there, and, obediently, Mediaweek's Stephanie Smith quickly… » 6/30/06 4:00pm 6/30/06 4:00pm
