This Week in Misogyny Found Some Sexist Pigs

Happy Friday, everyone! It’s time to learn about all the things that sucked this week! Hooray! Let’s talk about Miss America, the NFL, and why you really should smile more, ladies!

This Week in Misogyny is Capsy Swearing

I just can’t, y’all. CANNOT. Even without the Ray Rice video debacle, there was still an absurd amount of news this week.

The news that was out there was still pretty bad, there just wasn’t as much of it as most weeks. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)

This Week in Misogyny is a Wee Bit Less Stabby Than Usual

After all, most state legislatures and Congress are on holiday, so they aren’t writing laws about my uterus this week. Don’t worry, there’s still plenty of other misogyny in the news! (Trigger warnings apply for just about everything.) Read More This Week in Misogyny is a Wee Bit Less Stabby Than Usual
