Instagrammers Are Getting Scammed by a Mysterious 'Con Queen'

Carley Rudd is a photographer from Maine with 60K Instagram followers. She’s a self-described “digital nomad,” meaning she’s self-employed, travels a lot, and occasionally plugs brands via social media in exchange for free stuff. She says it’s a gig that looks pretty glamorous from the outside but one that also involves a lot of “hustle” and “grind.” She also says that it was precisely these factors that made her susceptible to being scammed out of almost US$16,000.

What It's Like to Be Raised Gender Neutral

In April of 2016, I interviewed two parents who are raising their children gender neutral. It could be liberating, they said, to not have social expectations of children based on their sex. However, many people considered their parenting decision to be a form of unnatural indoctrination – arguing that there's simply a biological difference between men and women; that kids shouldn't be tricked into thinking they can pick and choose. Unsurprisingly, my article inspired comments like: "This is what modern child abuse looks like," and, "Another selfish parent projecting her identity issues on a child."

This Guy Blew $50K on Buck Hunter... and Is Now Ranked #4 in the World

It’s a hot day in Newtown and Bromley is wearing thongs and boardies, a trucker hat and his Big Buck Hunter World Championship T–shirt. It's a pretty unassuming costume for someone who is revered—in certain circles—as an elite athlete. Because as it stands he’s the fourth best Big Buck Player on the planet.

'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’ Belongs to Bisexuals—Fight Me

Guy Ritchie’s 2015 retro spy flick The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is a fantastic and fundamentally bisexual movie, and I will die on this hill. As a bisexual cinephile, I find mindself queering most films I watch. Unless and until I’m told otherwise, all movie characters are bi. Still, some movies stand apart. Not because they explicitly embrace queerness, but because they feel queer on some deeper level. They exhibit queer themes, queer aesthetics, queer politics. They lend themselves to queering by

My Last Hours on Christmas Island

Leo Jai is currently detained in the Melbourne ImmigrationTransit Accommodation. Previously, he had been held at Australia's Christmas Island detention centre. He writes a dispatch for VICE from the inside. You can read his others here. On October 1, the Christmas Island immigration detention centre quietly closed its doors with little fuss or fanfare. Until then, it had formed part of Australia’s “onshore detention” program, and held a mix of asylum seekers and those detained on character grou

Is Living in a Tiny House Something People Actually Enjoy?

Over the last five years, there’s been a lot of talk about tiny houses. You'll know them as those kitschy little cabins that can be knocked up for cheap and moved about on trailers. Stories about tiny houses tend to dwell on their affordability, ecological sustainability, and the minimalist lifestyle that they entail. There’s even some hope that they represent a solution to Australia’s housing affordability crisis. But what’s it like to actually live in one?
