'Lenny Letter' dismisses GOP women
While I consistently find myself stuck in an inner battle of liking HBO’s Girls and disliking its lead actress and writer, Lena Dunham, I nonetheless signed up for her “feminist newsletter,” Lenny Letter.

NH Loss: Hillary fans still denigrate young women
Much has been made about comments from older Hillary Clinton surrogates, Madeleine Albright, 78, and Gloria Steinem, 81.

The west has spurred young Americans to leave their homes for centuries; now, however, the young have started to flee California for better opportunities.

Thanks Autocorrect: Now millennials can't spell
A texting app turned off its spellchecker, and people became very lax with their spelling accuracy. When Blend, a group texting app, paused autocorrect for 72 hours, about one-third of all words were misspelled, according to News 1130. Blend has a heavily young user base, and “weird,” “definitely,” and Budweiser were victimized. Double-letter words, misspellings […]

Dept. of Ed. scamming student loan borrowers
Debt relief companies have been using robocalls to drum up business from student-loan borrowers, but the practice resides in a legal gray area.
