Forget the stereotypes: A new report shows that women ages 18 to 34 care more about landing a high-paying career than men do. We’re cutthroat, I tell ya.

If you thought the “Text From Hillary” Tumblr (RIP, *sad face*) was life-altering and should have remained on the Internet longer than it did, “Hey Girl, It’s Paul Ryan” will fill the Grand Canyon of a void in your soul that was made by the departure of the LOL-worthy Secretary of State meme page.

News outlets finally had an opportunity to report on the young New Yorker’s work life rather than her substance usage, and I was actually very pleased about this change.

In its inaugural episode, “The Lizzie Bennet Diaries,” we’re treated to a fun hypothetical: What if the Pride and Prejudice hero were a modern woman? And what might her video blog look like?
If you had the odds on snappy, wry and hilarious, you’d be right. Watch the first episode, during which she takes that pesky old “universally acknowledged” truth down a peg or two.

It can be hard to cheer for unashamed home-wreckers such as actress Angelina Jolie, but that doesn’t mean women who have disrupted marriages deserve to be treated like second class citizens.
