The most ridiculous #YesAllMen tweets

Have you been following the #YesAllWomen (and #NotAllMen) hashtags on Twitter? Well... it has happened... there is now a #YesAllMen hashtag. No, really. It exists and misguided men are actually using it to air their grievances with women.

I compiled some of the most ridiculous tweets here.

The Best TV Friend Ensembles Part 2: Co-Workers Edition

http://www.abbyrosedalto.com/2014/05/the-best-tv-friend-ensembles-part-2-co.html
I recently posted a list of my 20 favorite TV "friend" ensembles (inspired by the 10th anniversary of the Friends series finale). I've always seen a lot of myself and my friends in some of TV's quirkiest cliques, particularly how a lot of those friendships wouldn't necessarily seem to make sense on paper, but yet totally did anyway. I asked for readers to let me know if I left out any of their favorite TV friendships... and apparently I left out an entire category known for friendly bonding: co-workers.

What is wrong with people?

I pride myself on being pretty open-minded and sex-positive, but come on... you don't open with this question. Work your way up to that question at least dude.

The Vampire Diaries: Worst Season Finale Ever

It's a good thing last night was the Season Finale of The Vampire Diaries, because I'm pretty much done with this show. I'm very unhappy with this finale. Aside from the fact that pretty much none of this shit even made any sense, the last minutes made me very very angry. So yeah, whatever. I'm sure they will find a magical way to un-do all this next season but I'm still pissed off on principle.

I was included in Everyday Family's feature on the #365feministselfie project! Read it now!

(I'm on slide #1, but you should really check the whole thing out.)

“The #365feministselfie project is about self-acceptance. It's the challenge of putting yourself out there—flaws and all—and saying, 'This is me. Take it or leave it.'"

The 10 Show Cancellations That Make Me the Saddest

http://www.abbyrosedalto.com/2014/05/the-10-show-cancellations-that-im-most.html
So most of the TV renewals and cancellations have been announced. I feel that some of the decisions were correct (good riddance Carrie Diaries) but others made me sad. Really really really sad. As in they cancelled Community officially for real this time sad.

I'm sure even more cancellation announcements are on their way (I've got my fingers crossed for the ABC Family's Switched at Birth coming back a fourth season). But for now, these are top 10 the shows that I am the most depressed to see go...

The Vampire Diaries: The Dead Doppelganger Paradox

Last night's episode of the Vampire Diaries "Promised Land" was a race against time! The Travelers used the doppelganger blood to cast the spell that would undo all witch magic (including the existence of vampires) so everyone is literally trying to out run death.

The 20 Best TV Friend Ensembles

I loved Friends growing up (and still watch re-runs almost every day). I own the box set and quote the characters way more than I'd like to admit. I've always seen a lot of my own friends in the show - even though my circle of friends have changed and evolved over the years, they always seemed to remind me of TV ensembles like the cast of Friends.

The Vampire Diaries: Liar Liar, Pants on Fire

Last night's episode of the Vampire Diaries is entitled "What Lies Beneath" which probably should have been the title of the episode where Stefan was trapped in a safe under water. I can only assume that the title is a reference to both the fact that there's a ghostly spirit haunting them the whole episode and the fact that every one is telling each other a bunch of big fat lies. In this episode, Stefan and Elena are hiding from the Travelers while Enzo is haunting the shit out of them and everyone is keeping secrets.
