A random man on the train thought it was OK to reach under her shirt. He f**ked with the wrong lady.

They may love their country. But they know it's far from perfect.

A random man on the train thought it was OK to reach under her shirt. He f**ked with the wrong lady.

These lovely women call themselves BomBaebs.

They live in place where women are too often treated like things — objects for men's satisfaction. And they're pretty over it.


The BomBaebs are TV personality Pankhuri Awasthi (left) and theatre artist Uppekha Jain.

They got tired of hearing things like...

"We have the best culture. In our culture, there is no place for a woman." — ML Sharma

They've grown bored with the double standards.

They could certainly do without random men groping them in public.

And honestly, that's not even the worst of it.

So they made this fiery three-minute video to get some things off their chests — including strange men's grubby hands.

A spate of sexual assault cases in India has led it to be known as the "rape capital of the world."

According to the country's National Crime Report Bureau, there are 93 reported cases of rape every day.

Many Indians contest the title of "rape capital of the world" on the grounds that sexual assault is a global problem that doesn't only tarnish India's reputation. That's true enough. There are places where the problem is statistically worse — like the United States, for example.

But regardless of where it's happening, we cannot be silent in the face of rape and the systemic oppression of women. And if you're as over it as Awasthi and Jain, give this post a share.

(Gentlemen, that goes for you too.)

Often, parents of children with special needs struggle to find Halloween costumes that will accommodate medical equipment or provide a proper fit. And figuring out how to make one? Yikes.

There's good news; shopDisney has added new ensembles to their already impressive line of adaptive play costumes. And from 8/30 - 9/26, there's a 20% off sale for all costume and costume accessory orders of $75+ with code Spooky.

When looking for the right costume, kids with unique needs have a lot of extra factors to consider: wheelchair wheels get tangled up in too-long material, feeding tubes could get twisted the wrong way, and children with sensory processing disorders struggle with the wrong kind of fabric, seams, or tags. There are a lot of different obstacles that can come between a kid and the ability to wear the costume of their choice, which is why it's so awesome that more and more companies are recognizing the need for inclusive creations that make it easy for everyone to enjoy the magic of make-believe.

Created with inclusivity in mind, the adaptive line is designed to discreetly accommodate tubes or wires from the front or the back, with lots of stretch, extra length and roomier cut, and self-stick fabric closures to make getting dressed hassle-free. The online shop provides details on sizing and breaks down the magical elements of each outfit and accessory, taking the guesswork out of selecting the perfect costume for the whole family.

Your child will be able to defeat Emperor Zurg in comfort with the Buzz Lightyear costume featuring a discreet flap opening at the front for easy tube access, with self-stick fabric closure. There is also an opening at the rear for wheelchair-friendly wear, and longer-length inseams to accommodate seated guests. To infinity and beyond!

An added bonus: many of the costumes offer a coordinating wheelchair cover set to add a major boost of fun. Kids can give their ride a total makeover—all covers are made to fit standard size chairs with 24" wheels—to transform it into anything from The Mandalorian's Razor Crest ship to Cinderella's Coach. Some options even come equipped with sounds and lights!

From babies to adults and adaptive to the group, shopDisney's expansive variety of Halloween costumes and accessories are inclusive of all.

Don't forget about your furry companions! Everyone loves to see a costumed pet trotting around, regardless of the occasion. You can literally dress your four-legged friend to look like Sven from Frozen, which might not sound like something you need in your life but...you totally do. CUTENESS OVERLOAD.

This year has been tough for everyone, so when a child gets that look of unfettered joy that comes from finally getting to wear the costume of their dreams, it's extra rewarding. Don't wait until the last minute to start looking for the right ensemble!

Last Christmas, Alex got exactly what he always wanted: a new "robo" arm.

Sure, it's basically like having a second hand, but it also does something equally important: It totally reflects his personality. How? It's a "Transformers"-themed arm.
