This adorable pug, Buddha, knows how to do a Nazi salute. (Yes, you read that correctly).
And now, the man responsible for teaching him, has been found guilty of a hate crime.
Scotland's Mark…Meechan, 30, taught his girlfriend's pug to raise his paw in response to statements like "gas the Jews" and "Heil Hitler." Meechan posted videos of the dog performing the trick on his YouTube channel, Count Dankula. (Yes, you also read that correctly.) The original video, posted in September 2016, drew more than 3 million views before it… >> Read More
If you're pregnant — or you've ever been pregnant — chances are you've asked Dr. Google some questions like: Do I really have to give up sushi? Can I still take that trip to Hawaii?

Growing up, I was pretty lucky: I had some fairly solid sex education. I learned about puberty in middle school, and then I had health classes in high school. The sex ed I received covered topics…like where to get condoms, how to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, and how to say no to sex. This kind of approach would generally be called “comprehensive,” since it was designed to address the full range of issues related to sexuality. This is markedly different from “abstinence-only” education, which teaches that sex should… >> Read More
The final episode of Portlandia airs this week. While the beloved sketch comedy may be coming to an end, Carrie Brownstein is forever. Seriously. Aside from being one of Portlandia's creators and…stars, the 43-year-old is a founder of the Seattle-based riot grrrl punk-indie band Sleater-Kinney (which you you may have heard of... you know, NBD). But Brownstein's keeping busy, to say the least. She's recording a Sleater-Kinney album, and she has a new Hulu series in the works, based on her memoir (yes!), Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl.… >> Read More
