The Friday Five

This week’s roundup of our favorites from across the interwebs to help you make sense of men and women.

1. College Women: Stop Getting Drunk by Emily Yoffe of says it’s closely related with sexual assault. And yet we’re reluctant to tell women to stop doing it. (We do not agree with her stance, but the piece has generated a lot of debate.)

2. The 9 Smartest Marriage Tips Ever by Tracy Clark-Flory of Salon says forget the relationship help aisle—this is the best marital advice the world has to offer.

3. The New Knight In Shining Armor by Stew Friedman of The Daily Beast says a cross-generational study of Wharton grads shows that men today are more egalitarian than ever—and they no longer think women should sacrifice a career for kids.

4. College Men: Stop Getting Drunk by Ann Friedman of The Cut is a response Emily Yoffe’s piece above, saying that the obsessive focus on blaming rape victims has made it somehow unacceptable to warn young men that when they get wasted, they are putting young women in potential peril.

5. Why Naked Pictures Aren’t Harmless by Soraya Chemaly of Salon says a frat flyer featuring naked women contributes to rape culture and objectification, and students are fighting back.
