By Kayla Kibbe One of the few good things the internet has done for society is make it easier to come up with new words for common shared experiences for which we previously lacked vocabulary — often because we’ve also previously lacked a platform on which to address these experiences with like-minded individuals. A few years ago, the term “stealthing” went viral when women of the internet used that platform to finally give a name to a behavior men have probably been enacting for as long as there have been condoms: taking them off during sex without the knowledge and/or consent of their partne… Read More “California Moves to Outlaw “Stealthing,” Or Removing a Condom During Sex”

The F-16 fighters wait around the clock in a hanger near Atlantic City, armed and ready to rocket into the air at a moment’s notice on a mission born of a national tragedy. For decades, the 177th Fighter Wing of the New Jersey Air National Guard served as sentinels in the Cold War. Soon after the Soviet Union crumbled, however, the “Jersey Devils” — as they had long been known — stopped shadowing the Russian bombers probing U.S. air space in long-running cat-and-mouse incursions along the East Coast. Its job was no longer one of air defense. That meant that on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, th… Read More “‘We knew everything was going to change…’”

DEAR ABBY: My 24-year-old son is in rehab for the second time. We paid for the first, but we are not financing this one. He has moved in and out of our home since he was 18.

One month later, he began using again. He claims to be taking rehab seriously this time, and wants to move back in wi… Read More “Dear Abby: Parents hesitate to allow addict son to move back in”
