The Bustle Huddle: What Bustle's Editors Are Talking About On Nov. 15
How's it going, everyone? We're officially at hump day, as well as the halfway point of November. This fall is seriously speeding by, and it's crazy to think that Thanksgiving is next week and the holidays are only a little over a month away.
And there's so much going on right now. Here's a recap of everything that had Bustle's editors talking today, Wednesday, Nov. 15:
Australia + LGBTQ Equality
On Tuesday night, the majority of Australian voters declared their support for marriage equality, meaning that the country is now one step closer to legalization. It's now up to Parliament to officially give LGBTQ marriage the OK, but this strong show of support from the Australian people is a great sign that that's the next step.

Kim Kardashian + Baby #3
Congrats are in order for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West! The famous couple are having their third child via surrogate, and on Tuesday, Kardashian accidentally revealed in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres that they're expecting a girl. Don't expect her to announce a name anytime soon, though — she and West still haven't decided, apparently.

Birth Control + You
Today, Nov. 15, is Thanks, Birth Control Day, a day meant to have you reflect on how birth control has changed countless lives for the better. Due in part to the pill and other contraceptives, there's been a 67 percent decline in the teen birth rate since 1991, as well as an 18 percent decline in unintentional pregnancies in 2008- 2011. So, in short: Thanks, birth control, for helping out so many people.
