This Kamala Harris Staffer's Cory Booker Halloween Costume Will Haunt Your Dreams

This Election Is Literally High School: Cliquey, Loud, and Full of Nerds

This Election Is Literally High School: Cliquey, Loud, and Full of Nerds

The average millennial could presumably list approximately 15 different high school movies that defined their teen years: Bring It On, Mean Girls, Clueless, Heathers, and for the Gen Z cohort, of which I am a member, more recent films like To All the Boys I’ve Love Before. This constant mythologizing of high school is also embodied by the “Where y’all sitting” meme, which consumed Twitter in...

Julián Castro Gets Abortion Right

Julián Castro Gets Abortion Right

Abortion rights had already come up a handful of times by the halfway point of the first Democratic presidential primary debate, but it was Julián Castro who, at least so far, offered the best response when asked about abortion and reproductive health.

According to his husband, Indiana mayor and Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg was deemed a Hufflepuff after taking the Pottermore sorting quiz. That tracks, but we here at Jezebel want the voters to be as...

Hillary Clinton's Short List for Vice President Will Include Women

In an interview with the Boston Globe, John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, indicated that her short list for potential running mates will definitely include women. “We’ll start with a broad list and then begin to narrow it.
