After a short layover in L.A., we took a commuter train to Santa Barbara, where Steve picked us up and we played tourists in our hometown, venturing as far north as Cambria and Hearst Castle.

    I was talking one day to a friend who is Indian American (as opposed to American Indian. Make sure you have these terms straight). We're both attractive, single, brown-skinned, dark-eyed women who are open to finding a relationship with a man. I was talking to her about men I'd recently dated, who included white, Black and Latino men, and said I hadn't found anyone I was particularly interested in. I mentioned one date who I tried to stay friends with, but platonic friendship hadn't worked because he wouldn't stop flirting. He was Black and highly educated (I like degrees).My friend said it…

Many of us had upgrade remorse last month when Hulu.com produced a terrible version of its app that didn't allow us to watch anything on our mobile devices. It took Hulu weeks to get an app out that worked properly, so in the meantime I did NOT update my iPhone. It was bad enough that I couldn't use Hulu on my iPad. Over and over I wondered, "Why did I update Hulu on my iPad? Why?"I also regret upgrading my laptop iOS version. I dislike the way iPhoto and…

    During a recent interview with The Huffington Post, Jon Krakauer said his 1996 climbing of Mount Everest was a mistake. This is startling because in his 1997 book Into Thin Air, he explains that reaching that summit was a dream he'd had all his life. In many ways, it even seemed that everything he'd done up to that point had led him to fulfill that dream, and his book describes how he was one of few people in his climbing team to reach the top and survive. Given that Krakauer is famous for surviving that tragic climb and writing a book about it, it's particularly telling that he…

Here's why it makes more sense to learn self-defense moves than buy a gun:A gun can be separated from you, but you'll always have your body attached.If you rely on weapons to protect you against rape and assault, you'll forget how powerful your own hands, legs, voice, etc. are and you might not use them.If you learn to protect yourself with your own body, you'll be able to fight back even if you wake up naked in the middle of the night with an…

She read from her book, The Sisters Are Alright, which discusses how Black women are viewed in the USA and their reactions to those views. One area that the discussion centered on was that of beauty.There are many issues that #365FeministSelfie has dealt with and at its core is the concept of beauty. Who gets to say who is beautiful? Why don't more women believe that they are beautiful? During the life of the project,…

The women fought back and were later charged with gang assault and attempted murder. The tabloids quickly dubbed them a gang of "Killer Lesbians" and a "Wolf Pack." Three pleaded guilty to avoid a trial, but the remaining four — Renata, Patreese, Venice and Terrain — maintained their innocence.
