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 documented every single sexist thing men said to me during my internship
‘Oh, is it ~your week~?’
by Sarah Hall
This summer, like any other college student, I got an internship to learn more about potential careers, and of course to make that $$$. I worked for an environmental consulting company in Ann Arbor, MI, as an environmental hygienist. My job was essentially to travel to K-12 schools in the state that were undergoing summer…
Sorority girls reveal how vicious rush actually is
‘They’ll call you out if you don’t have your hair curled or if you didn’t wear the right lip color’
by Eleni Mitzali
I don't know how, but I manage to meet a new sorority girl every week. They tell me what house they're in, like I know the difference between a Delta and a Gamma other than the fact they're letters in the Greek alphabet. Then they passionately try and convince me sororities "are nothing like they…
Charlottesville was my first protest, and I’ll be damned if it’s my last
They all had the same uniform; khakis, white polo, and Make America Great Again hats
by Sara Rose
“The Governor just declared Charlottesville in a state of emergency. I’m no longer asking you not to go, I’m telling you not to,” my mom told me as I arrived in Charlottesville. I had never been to a protest before Saturday, and my mother didn’t approve of me attending the march – a massive counter-protest to the Unite…
