An idea permeates our modern view of relationships: that men and women have always paired off in sexually exclusive relationships. But before the dawn of agriculture, humans may actually have been quite promiscuous. Author Christopher Ryan walks us through the controversial evidence that human beings are sexual omnivores by nature, in hopes that a more nuanced understanding may put an end to discrimination, shame and the kind of unrealistic expectations that kill relationships.

The BBC shot the whole thing while waiting for their own production to come back online, and they eventually posted the monologue, cut into 3 minutes of breathtaking tightrope work. And when I read the news today, I watched it again, and it reminded me of what we just lost — but it also gave me 3 minutes of pure, wild joy. Just watch him go. Posted by, Emily McManus
You've got to love this "Vogue"-era throwback interview of Madonna doing what she does best ... speaking the truth. In fact, I don't remember hearing the word "ageism" much at all back then. Once again, she's helped pave the way towards equality.
A few major celebs have been speaking out on harmful beauty ideals lately, and Jennifer Lawrence is the latest! We love that she acknowledges we can take our power back through the way we talk to/about other women, and not supporting or emulating media that degrades women. Go J-Law!
This is an awesome video made by Woody Harrelson sharing some powerful thoughts from within. The video contains a message that touches us all and is riddled with truth throughout.
“I sometimes feel like an alien creature, for which there is no earthly explanation,”
begins Woody Harrelson’s introspective poem.
“I feel like a run-on sentence in a punctuation-crazy world.”
This spoken word piece is brought to life in video with compelling images of the present day dilemma, where rules and values are dictated by unnatural forces seemingly beyond the control of our own lives. We have come too far in a direction that has removed us from ourselves.
Woody Harrelson asks for a return to an ethos of caring and belonging that was “pre-us.”
Check this out and share Woody’s Thoughts from Within.
Have a look and spread the word!

When the reporter asked
what he had learned from this experience his answer;
"I just learned God is good,'' he said. "His hand was in this the whole time. It sounds weird, but if I had to do it all over again, I don't know if I'd do anything different because He's just showed me so much of what's going on and just the lives that He's touching. It's not about us, it's not about me.
