Donald Trump's kids forgot to register to vote. Don't make the same mistake.

Eric and Ivanka Trump didn't register in time to vote in next week's New York primary. Whoops!

Eric and Ivanka Trump spend a lot of time with their dad, Donald.

They're practically inseparable.

Whether that's on the campaign trail, attending high-end galas, or holding gigantic scissors, you can usually find them by his side.

But there's one thing they won't be doing with their dad: voting for him.

It turns out the two billionaires-to-be forgot to register to vote.

OOOOOOOPS!

In order to vote in New York's primary election on April 19, they needed to have registered by March 25, a deadline they both missed.

"They were unaware of the rules and they didn't register in time," Papa Trump said on Fox News. "So they feel very, very guilty. They feel very guilty but it's fine."

And while there's a snowball's chance in heck that their two votes would have made much of a difference (though it's tough to feel too torn up about Donald Trump receiving two fewer votes), this is a good reminder for the rest of us to get to know our voting laws and registration dates.

Do you know when your state is holding its primary? Do you know the registration date? Are you FREAKING OUT RIGHT NOW?

Here's a quick breakdown of some of the upcoming primaries.

Data from Rock the Vote.

And more specific details (like how to register, for example) can be found at Rock the Vote's website.

Has the registration deadline already passed for your state?

And does that have you feeling all "Charlie Brown-y?"

Lucky for you, there's still plenty of time (no matter what state you're in) to register for the general election!

And what better time is there to register than right now while it's still on your mind? (Go on, do it. Doooooo it.)

Because registering to vote (and voting come Election Day) will have you all like:

When it comes to the general election, don’t be like Eric and Ivanka Trump. Register to vote.

Because whether you're a Democrat, Republican, or something else altogether, you should vote. Democracy works better when we all participate!

They say that kids say the darnedest things, and seriously, they do. Anyone who has spent any significant amount of time with young children knows that sometimes the things they say can blow your mind.

Since teachers spend more time around little kids than anyone else, they are particularly privy to their profound and hilarious thoughts. That's why NYC kindergarten teacher Alyssa Cowit started collecting kid quotes from teachers around the country and sharing them on her Instagram account, Live from Snack Time, as well as her websiteand other social media channels.

Earlier this month, a beluga whale caught the world's attention by playing fetch with a rugby ball thrown by South African researchers off the waters of Norway.

The adorable video has been watched over 20 million times, promoting people across the globe to wonder how the whale became so comfortable around humans.

It's believed that the whale, known as Hvaldimir, was at some point, trained by the Russian military and was either released or escaped.

It's incredible how many myths about the female body persist, despite all of us living in the information age. Young and old, educated or not, we're all susceptible to misinformation — especially when the same false info gets shared widely without question or correction.

Exhibit A: The female hymen.

Rapper T.I. made headlines recently with his horrific description of accompanying his 18-year-old daughter to the gynecologist to have her hymen checked. According to him and countless others like him, the hymen is a sign of virginity — a gateway of sorts that indicates whether or not a woman has had sex (or otherwise been vaginally penetrated). Popular belief has it that the hymen is a thin layer of tissue in the vagina that "breaks" the first time a woman has sex, so an "intact" hymen is proof of virginity.

The problem is that's a bunch of anatomically incorrect hogwash.

Plus-size women are in the majority. In America, 68% of women wear a size 14 or higher. Yet many plus-sized are ignored by the fashion industry. Plus-sized clothing is a $21 billion industry, however only one-fifth of clothing sales are plus-sized. On top of that, plus-sized women are often body shamed, further reinforcing that bigger body types are not mainstream despite the fact that it is common.

Plus-size fashion blogger Katie Sturino recently called out her body shamers. Sturino runs the blog, The 12ish Style, showing that plus-sized fashion isn't – and shouldn't be – limited to clothes that hide the body.
