3. No Pill? No Prob. Meet The Pullout Generation by Ann Friedman of The Cut, which reports on a large number of women today who “buy organic kale and all-natural cleaning products, and can’t quite get down with taking synthetic hormones every day.”

4. My Pink-Loving, Princess-Crazy Son by Lori Duron on The Daily Beast discusses the author’s trials and triumphs of raising a gender-nonconforming child.

5. The Six Ways We Talk About A Teenage Girl’s Age by Soraya Chemaly on says the idea that a teen can be “older than her chronological age” puts young girls in danger.
