I’m Making How Much Less Money Than A Man? [Lady Bits]

Today, I graduate from college. It's a very, very exciting day, and one I've dreamed about for a long time. But it's also a sobering reminder that the working world is tough, especially for women. On average, women working full time make about 77 cents for every dollar that men make.

10 Things All Women Need to Know About Men

There's no way around it, ladies -- they're on this earth with us for the next million years (or at the very least, until we learn how to procreate on our own), so we might as well get with it. And since there's absolutely no escaping the crux of the male existence, there are quite a few things all women need to learn about our male counterparts.

The Year People Listened To Women Without Rolling Their Eyes

There has been headline after headline about how 2012 has been the "Year of Women." Some of them mean it in a nice way, while others imply that the "rise of women" equates to a war on men. You know because when people get what they have rightfully earned that means they are maliciously taking it away from everybody else - not. Sharing is caring, c'mon. Although I couldn't be more ecstatic about the supposedly great championing achieved by my gender, I can't help but be a tad annoyed by the sentiment or maybe just the articulation.

10 Surprising Things All Girls Do When They’re Alone

Right now the leggings-as-pants I'm wearing are going on their third day of use. But I totally doused them with perfume before I put them on, so it's not even gross, okay? Okay, so I'm going to lay it all on the line here.

Women Are Sluts and Men Are Suffering? [Friday Faves]

In her recent essay The New Dating Game, Allen tries to communicate the message that because women now have the power to choose who they date (and sleep with), males, particularly beta-males, are being pushed to the back burner. In the "New Paleolithic Age," alpha males are "dragging women by the hair into their caves-- and the women love every minute of it."

The Lowdown on “Pink” Journalism

Pink journalism deserves just as many awards and positive feedback as "Serious" journalism does. The topics it touches on aren't silly or second class, they're especially relevant to just about half of the country. And it is serious.

What Happened to Romance?

What happened to wooing? What happened to a guy and a girl getting together for a date and getting to know each other? What happend to calling a girl to speak to her instead of sending an endless stream of texts? Why are guys trying to arrange and cancel dates via Facebook? It's awkward and unnatural, and honestly, kind of cowardly. And completely unromantic.

One Million Moms, Get Over It: Ellen Degeneres For JCPenney [Video]

Proposition 8 was overturned, and now we have to see that lesbian comedienne Ellen Degeneres as the new face of JCPenney? Where on EARTH will I shop now? Ladies, we've got to do something about this. Let's protest that crazy talk show host so that her homosexuality doesn't taint all our kids' back-to-school clothes and our Christmas shopping.

Are Barbies Really That Bad for Girls?

Maybe I'm one of the few American kids who grew up peacefully playing with Barbie dolls without wanting to actually look like them or feeling badly about myself when I looked in the mirror. I also didn't get these feelings whenever I played with Cabbage Patch Kids, teddy bears, Tamagotchis or Super Mario Bros.

Kardashian Backlash: Daniel Craig, Jonah Hill and Barbara Walters

I'll admit it: I'm an addict. It's a horrible habit that, after so many years, I just can't kick. It's available, it's affordable and, hey, it makes me feel good about myself. And even though it's probably damaging for me in the long run, I just can't stop. Yeah, I'm a consumer of the Kardashian culture. I watch the shows (the originals, the spin-offs and Dancing With The Stars when one is competing), I read the interviews, I follow the obnoxious tweets...

Sex in the News: What’s Wrong With Being Unmarried and Childless?

Overall, women who have not popped out children may have trouble with social functioning and mental health as a result of societal pressures to have children. I'm sure you could relate if you sat next to your old aunt at Thanksgiving that measures accomplishments by the presence of a ring on your finger and a stroller in front of you.

Nicole Richie Asks Girls Not to “Dress Slutty” This Halloween

It’s finally here: Halloweekend 2011. And though many choose to witty, creative or innovative with their costumes (like building a fully-functioning digital camera costume), most choose to simply…wear less. But Nicole Richie is not okay with that option.

The Weekly Ten: Love Yourself!

I know you are probably sick of CollegeCandy writers telling you to hop on the self lovin' train (not in the masturbation sense), but I'm having a week of self-hate, so you're just going to have to grin and bear one more person telling you that you are awesome. Think you can deal?

Trying to Remember Why We Still Love LiLo

From double DUIs to shoplifting charges, it’s been hard to watch Lindsay make headlines more often from criminal activity than from movie deals (keeping them, at least). She hasn’t led a blockbuster in years, but now she’s collecting attention for racking up $90,000 in unpaid limo bills and getting kicked out of a community service program, before a progress hearing in court. And dentists definitely aren’t her biggest fans—what the hell is up with her teeth?!?

Define Your Own Boundaries (Or Why You Shouldn’t Feel Guilty About Casual Sex)

So there’s been a lot of talk here on CollegeCandy lately about slut shaming, casual sex, and what exactly defines a girl as “whorey.” Instead of clearing all of that up for you with this post, I’m probably just going to create another grey area, but hey, that’s what life is all about, isn’t it?

Surviving Senior Year: Life Lessons

So just like with the very first column I wrote for Surviving Senior Year, it’s taken me a while to figure out what exactly I want to write for this one. My very last one. Actually I should say it’s “taking me a while” because I really have no idea where this one is going. So bear with me one last time. When I started this column back in September I was just starting senior year. I was both excited and terrified at the prospect of having just two semesters left of college, and now, two months away from the end of college I’m just as excited and just as terrified.

USC Frat E-mail Shocks and Appalls, But I’m Just Appalled

Behind closed doors, when guys aren’t trying to score a “Guap n' Drop” by taking women out to dinner and pretending like they actually believe they are human beings, this is how a lot of men talk. Not all men, but a lot of them, and especially a lot of college guys who have yet to reach the stage of wanting a real relationship and are only concerned with scoring “pies”.
