Why do some people hate astrology so much

Astrology is cool.

Sorry, I'm Sagittarius rising, so I can't take anything seriously. But I'm also Scorpio Mars, which means I'm definitely a little mad sometimes. And I'm a little mad right now, because I need you to add me on Co-Star. Seriously, tell me your fucking sun sign. Please do it, and I do not want to hear about how you think astrology is so super fake, and you don't like stars or whatever. Listen, if you tell me your Venus sign, I promise to tell you mine. There's nothing to be afraid of.

Over the past week or so, left-of-center TikTokers can only seem to talk about one thing: a band called Tramp Stamps.

Most of the chatter surrounding the Nashville pop-punk trio is overwhelmingly negative. Tramp Stamps — singer Marisa Maino, guitarist Caroline Baker, and drummer Paige Blue — first emerged on social media in late 2020, steadily sharing an array of masterfully edited photos before releasing their first original song.

Now, with the release of their latest single "I'd Rather Die," Tramp Stamps are getting ruthlessly roasted online for being apparent "industry plants" — simply put, folks are inclined to believe Tramp Stamps formed not over of the members' genuine interests in making music together, but because some industry executives decided they could make lots of money if they manufactured a "feminist punk" band.

Contains Spoilers for I Care A Lot

I thought I knew how I Care A Lot would end just because it stars Rosamund Pike of Gone Girl fame.

Like Gone Girl, I expected Pike to come out on top, for her to go through the ringer in pursuit of her convoluted goals but end up with some version of the future she wants. In I Care A Lot, Pike's character Marla Grayson expects this too.

Happy 99th birthday, Betty White!

Even though learning history is pointless (since it's for nerds and never repeats itself), we've all enjoyed the historical fact that Betty White is, in fact, older than sliced bread. But sliced bread can't serve as a measurement of time the way that Betty White can. Aside from her 70-year television career, the actress and comedian lived through the advent of traffic signals, sunglasses, and ballpoint pens.

Why Women In Sports Need #WomenInSports

This is what it is to be one of the #WomenInSports: It is a duality of being pushed down and lifted up solely because of our gender.
