The Feminist Guide to Chivalry

Feminism. It’s equality. It’s historically and graphically dependent. It’s Roxane Gay taking down Twitter trolls. And, lately, it’s the latest trend. Hillary Clinton’s are spray painted on Williamsburg sidewalks. The Etsy market for feminist baseball hats is booming, and Forever 21 wants to be woke so bad they’re willing to (allegedly) steal for it, which is so not woke. Even though feminism is becoming more widely accepted thanks to graphic tees and tireless politicians, there’s still one term that most…

Patook: The Future of Friendship Apps?

I love you two.

"I don't hate you" I told Antonio*, when I found out he was with someone new. I knew by the way they flashed their honey-moon phase relationship that they had just started dating, and probably just met. It was sickening, in your face, social media PDA. Only a month had past since we had went away together. I wasn't ignorant enough to consider the possibility they had met after the last time we had seen each other. There was an overlap.…
