This bar banned the word ‘literally’ and now I would LITERALLY rather snort anthrax than go there
‘Stop Kardashianism now!’
by Katie Way
The Continental, a bar in New York City, posted a sign officially banning the word "literally" and it's so self-righteous that I'm literally going to write an article picking it apart right now.

I'm sick of the idea that the worst thing that could come out of someone's mouth is a faintly annoying, very common vocal tic: "like," "literally," "um," vocal fry (which I'm not totally convinced is real?), whatever.
First of all, it's a bar, the place I am most likely to be at my most annoying. When I am at a place like the Continental, a bar that offers 5 shots of anything for $10, I am probably screaming about how my boyfriend LITERALLY liked another girl's Instagram post or how I'd LITERALLY kill for Lana del Rey. I'm not at the fucking Continental to discus Davos.
Getting mad at people, particularly young women, for their benign usage of expressions is literally more boring than reading the Wikipedia page for paper.
It is an icy cold take that really betrays the fact that you not only don't like young women very much, but you will jump at any given chance to discount and dismiss what they're saying. Literally.

I have a genius idea for a horror movie franchise, and I'm hoping a studio coughs up the cash to make it happen because it's genuinely the most terrifying thing I can think of. You know The Purge, in which people have to survive a night of legalized crime/murder/flamethrowers in the streets? Now picture having…
We asked girls for the biggest relationship red flags they’ve ever seen, and now I never want to date again
Love is HORRIFYING
by Katie Way
We've all been on a few dates with someone before we discovered something that stopped us cold in our tracks and made us buy a one-way ticket to Ghost City. Maybe your prospective boo was "into politics." Maybe your would-be lover asked you if you wanted to go to a Meghan Trainor concert. Maybe you…
