The Most Effective Argument Against Gay Rights

gq.com — By all accounts, 2015 has been a watershed year for gay rights in America. In June, the Supreme Court affirmed a Constitutional right to marriage in a landmark 5-4 decision.

gq.com — Microsoft founder Bill Gates turns 60 today and most of the coverage has focused on his ground-breaking work as a philanthropist, promoting public health and other important causes throughout the world.

Serena Williams Demonstrates Why It's Not a Good Idea to Ask a Woman to Smile

gq.com — Here's a thing that men apparently do with some frequency, and that infuriates many women: We condescendingly ask them to smile or, relatedly, ask them why they are not currently smiling-or tell them they would look prettier if they smiled.
