So I’ve been wearing a Diva Cup for 8 months and no one has congratulated me yet…?
Here’s everything you need to know
I LOVE my Diva Cup. I have to admit, at first I was totally like ew, a plastic cup in my pussy? Uh, no thank you. But after the fifth or sixth time using it, I started to think it might be just as effective as a tampon.
I have become a total Diva! No, seriously, I turning into a human Diva Cup. Kidding! I am just super passionate about these little plastic guys. I know some of you are still using those ancient feminine products, and I’m here to tell you: You’re stupid as shit. Read my pros and cons list about the cup, and you’ll make the right choice too.
Pro: Thanks to its super safe and supportive chamber, I can save and store my period blood to use for my artwork
I have a degree in fine arts from Colombia College Chicago, so I think I know.
Pro: It’s better for the environment than tampons
I have a heavy flow so it’s really very giving and selfless of me to use the cup, but I power through because I feel this moral obligation to save the planet. I just feel like this was what I was brought on Earth to do — and then to slowly make all my friends and coworkers resent me because I won’t stop talking about it.
Con: I spilled blood everywhere the first time I used it
I was at my current ex-boyfriend’s house and I felt like I was overflowing, so I tried to yank it out. I accidentally got blood all over his bathroom. He was so supportive when he watched me clean it up and barely even yelled at me for it!
Con: I accidentally drank my period blood once
After I removed my diva cup I left it sitting out because I thought I heard someone in my apartment, but it was just my neighbors having their nightly extremely loud sex. Coincidentally, I was making a cranberry vodka for myself when I felt my cup leak. Ok. I was drunk and there is no further explanation for why I did this. I drank my blood.
Pro: I discovered I like the taste of human blood
I’m not addicted, though. I am in control! It’s similar to how I only smoke when I drink.
Now that you know my story, please praise me accordingly. If you feel like your words aren’t enough, you can hit me on Venmo.
I asked finance bros on The League to explain Bitcoin to me
They were NOT helpful
by Katie Way
Bitcoin! It's everywhere, and I'm not totally sure what it is. I don't want to name names, but a fellow babe writer thought it was the currency from Farmville until like, yesterday. So that's where our newsroom is at in terms of the cryptocurrency wave. When I don't understand something, I usually try to do…

Instagram’s new app just for DMing sounds like a fucking nightmare
‘I found you on Tinder’
by Caroline Phinney
There are a lot of people with arguably too many opinions about our favorite app to hate: Instagram. Some wish the stories stayed on Snapchat, others are bothered by the new algorithm and a few are still pretending the whole thing is a waste of time they'd be "happier without" (despite posting no less than…
