Facebook’s days are numbered because (shocker!) it’s mostly moms using it
It’s like the Myspace of yesteryear
“Facebook will never go out of style,” we all collectively thought in 2007.
And for a long time, it didn’t. We were slightly less addicted, but that’s because we’d allowed our addictions to manifest elsewhere — alcohol, Tinder — but we still used Facebook. We still had the messenger app on our phones, allowing us to keep in touch with family members we don’t otherwise call, and it was a convenient way to remember old friends’ birthdays.
But when was the last time you posted on someone’s wall? When was the last time you held a discussion with someone under their profile picture?

If they want to keep people coming to them, they’re going to need to re-brand. But maybe that’s why they acquired Instagram in the first place.
Why is Forever 21 the most stressful store in the mall?
Y’all know EXACTLY what I’m talking about
by Una Dabiero
The shopping mall is the watering hole of basically every small-to-mid-size town I've ever been to. And before you call me fucking LAME, sorry I haven't been to Dubai or some cool shit. It's the first place your mom drops you off at alone. It's where you go on your first dates in high school.…

I don’t make the rules: Being a horse girl is cool now
Damn, I fucked up
by Una Dabiero
There was a time in our very modern history in which being a horse girl was not cool. In fact, the horse girl was probably the girl you avoided like the fucking bubonic plague as an emotionally underdeveloped middle schooler. You know, because all her school supplies were covered in live-action horses and she carried…
