How many times have you heard your parents say, “You kids have it so easy. When I was a young boy/gal [insert story we don’t give a sh*t about here.]”? So maybe we were a little more spoiled than our parents were — okay, way more spoiled — but they act like girlhood was all rainbows and butterflies.

Growing up as a girl in Gen-Y wasn’t always easy. Sure, we got to play with Bratz dolls, which were way hotter versions of the classic Barbie, and we weren’t forced to listen to stupid hippie music because the Spice Girls saved the millenials and taught girls that if he wants to be your lover, he’s gotta get with your friends (hos over bros, duh).

However, there were some moments in our girlhood that we could’ve used a therapist to help us cope. Like when a boy asked you if you were a virgin at 5-years-old and you said no because you thought it was a bad thing (or was that just me?). Plenty of sh*t happened in our girlhood that we never want to relive. So before you decide which baby pic and filter will get you the most likes for #TBT, let’s take a moment to remember some of the most traumatic moments in our girlhood, and be grateful that they’re over.

5 Reasons Why Boy Friends Are Way Better Than Actual Boyfriends

Despite the ever-worrisome presence of “the friend zone” and the potential for our other halves to become jealous, friendships — with people of any gender — are very important to Generation-Y. As a 20-something who has experienced her fair share of life upheavals, relocations and heated rows, I am very proud of the fact that […]

The Female Hunger Games: 17 Ways Women Try To Outdo Each Other Way Too Often

Unlike our physically aggressive male counterparts, when it comes to girl-on-girl competition, we prefer torturing our opponent with social mind games rather than an all-out brawl. Some believe this passive form of fighting is an evolutionary tactic to protect our uteruses, but in reality, it’s just way more entertaining to watch (see: Bravo reality television, […]

Don’t Feel Bad Peeing At The Beach, Urine And Ocean Water Are Basically The Same

When you’re stuck at the beach with a full bladder, feel free to release it into the ocean instead of those nasty shoreside toilets. Science says it’s fine. According a video by science-themed YouTube channel Reactions, urine is over 95 percent water. It also contains sodium, potassium and chloride, which are all also found in […]

Why Fighting With Love Is The Key To Better Understanding Your Partner

A few years back, I encountered a couple that fought almost every week. There was always an issue, a concern or a mistake that brought them to the verge of aggression.

This 10-Year-Old Girl Crushes It Rapping About Kickin’ It With Her Daddy (Video)

We might have a future Nicki Minaj in the works. In this video, a 10-year-old girl and her dad perform an original rap song they call “Kickin’ It With My Daddy,” and it’s way too catchy and well-written. Shot by 6-year-old Jermaine, the video features the Minaj protégé rapping about her good grades, playing games, shopping for […]

Homeless Man Brilliantly Covers Paul McCartney Song, ‘My Love’ (Video)

This cover of Paul McCartney and Wings’ song, “My Love,” by a homeless man is insanely impressive. The cover itself is a beautifully stripped down version of the classic song, and in my opinion, it’s actually more enjoyable than the original. That’s not to hate on Wings (though, they’ll obviously never be The Beatles); it’s […]

Falling in love is one of the most exciting, rewarding and scariest things you could ever do. Once you’re in love with someone, it’s hard to remember how you lived without him or her. Of course, you were alive before you met this person, but you really didn’t start “living” until the two of you […]
