I read Sassy and Jane magazine and listened to Hole and the like (yes it was the 90s). But I think Lena’s impact on young women is pretty incredible, I know I’d want to listen to her. I gotta love a woman who says things like, “A huge part of being a feminist is allowing other women to make choices you might not necessarily make yourself.”
MANY dudes have told me this. Apparently us ladies are getting hacky on Tinder. It seems MANY of us are using Marilyn Monroe quotes in our taglines. I personally think taglines are important. It’s what makes you more than a just a pretty face.

I have to say, talking with Rose completely changed my perception of the show. For one thing, I used to get a really annoyed by all the crying – some of the women have only known this guy for two days and they’re completely devastated to be sent home?
