All the people who should get statues instead of those confederate shitbags
Beyoncé always and forever
by Jenn Ficarra
There are way too many erected statues of old, white, racist men that simply should not exist.
Glorifying racism isn't just wrong, it's disgusting, and there are plenty of other people who deserve statues in place of these literal losers.
A man in Virginia, Nathan Coflin, has started a petition to erect a statue of Missy Elliot in Portsmouth and he seems to have the right idea.

Why are we continuously putting up statues of men who don't deserve it? Why are we trying to preserve the wrong kind of history? There are plenty of other people out there who have shaped the world and our lives who deserve to be immortalized in bronze. In fact, here are ten people who deserve statues more than the confederate morons (need better insult here).
Meryl Streep as Julia Child
Specifically, this image of her holding the chicken.
Britney Jean Spears
Haters back off, the Princess of Pop just sang live this past weekend reminding us all that she is now and forever perfection. Immortalize her and fast.
Like the finest wine, Uncle Jesse just keeps getting better with age. It'd be hard to capture his beauty in bronze but I believe someone should be up for the task.

She is a true hero to us all.

This statue better WORK.
Fiona the Hippo
She's an inspiration to us all.
Chance the Rapper
Not only is he talented AF but he's doing more for Chicago and for the people than any of those confederate shitholes ever did. Chance for President 2020.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
No explanation necessary. #Notoriousrbg for life.

Lo but only in this outfit, Ameila Earhart, Lin Manuel Miranda, and, of course, Carrie Fischer.
Someone started a hate campaign against Millie Bobby Brown and it’s filled with horrible tweets
by Katie Way
A trending hashtag right now, #TakeDownMillieBobbyBrown, is full of photoshopped tweets and presumably falsified accounts designed to make the Stranger Things darling look like a homophobic edgelord and it's incredibly fucked up. The words and pictures that Millie stands "accused" of posting are nowhere to be seen on her actual Twitter account, nor is there…
Everyone you’ll inevitably run into when you go home for Thanksgiving
Your hometown’s greatest hits
by Katie Way
Thanksgiving is a relatively simple holiday, especially if you toss aside all of the weird, shaky historical context. Basically, you go home and eat a long, early dinner with your family members and then watch football instead of the Godfather marathon that's on AMC every year. But since that straightforward premise brings everybody home at…
This girl just invented the most genius way to sneak snacks into the movies, and I’m truly in awe of her intellect
Thomas Edison could never
by Katie Way
I've said it before and I'll say it again: women are smarter than men. And now, thanks to Twitter user @AngelaBrisk, next time I say that and some dude tries to challenge me I'll have definitive proof that I'm right. If you've ever tried to bring outside food into a movie theater, you know that…
