We’ve got good news, ladies. While the mass media might be fooling you into thinking otherwise, a new study says that the women who wear larger sizes are happier than those fitting sample sizes. Sorry, Karl.
Is the clock on my Macbook not functioning properly? Because the year part keeps telling me that it’s still 2013, and yet while I was observing Vice co-founder and currentStreetCarnage.com honcho Gavin McInnes share his feelings about women in the workplace on this HuffPost Live web show, I could have sworn that the space-time continuum shat me directly back into 1951.
From muses to step teams to feminist statements to statements we’re not even entirely sure how to interpret, this Fashion Month has been serving up a lot to digest. And much of the serving — relinquish any conventional gender roles you might associate that action with — is being done by the fairer sex.

November is one of the most beautiful months of the year. It’s almost time to bust our Mariah Carey’s Christmas CD (ha, jokes, it’s already permanently synched to my phone) and it’s the season where even the grinchiest of Starbucks haters become hypnotized by the scent of Pumpkin Spice Lattes. It’s also Movember, which, as a firm believer in male facial hair, is a glorious thing. Movember just makes perfect sense. Chilly weather, men with mustaches and charitable stimuli are pretty much a holy trifector.

Think the fashion world is all beautiful people, in beautiful clothes, doing beautiful things? Think again. In fact, a new study published in the Journal of Consumer research found that when it comes to those glossy adverts, we women like things a little rougher — “grotesque” even. Accordingly, we did our own, erm, research and pulled together seven of the most terrifying ads we’ve ever seen.
