Quick Hit: Check out “Rookie”!

“Rookie,” Tavi Gevinson’s new website for teenage girls, has officially launched. With a classy, simple layout and three posts per day by a roster of very cool contributors (including our very own Lori!), it kinda makes me want to go back and do high school again–with better style this time.

I especially loved Tavi’s first post offering tips for getting over “girl hate.” It is spot-on and comes with this lovely flowchart explaining the origins of girl-on-girl competition and jealousy.


Go read the rest and explore the site!

    Ha. Yeah, my high school experience was not bad, but I suppose where I’m at now is pretty nice too!

    They’re right in that competition is gender segregated in your society. I don’t think that “men don’t want to compete with, or compared to women” is an adequate explanation for this segregation though.

      Seconded. It may be an aspect but I’ve seen so much more to those scenarios.
