OK, People, It’s Time to Calm Down About Target

Earlier this week, Target announced that they’ll be removing unnecessarily gender-specific signs and color-coded decorations from some departments, including the toy aisles and children’s bedding.

This Week in Misogyny

Oh, dearies, it was another week of fuckery in the world. Between Rolling Stone throwing a source under the bus when inconsistencies rose in her story (cue gloating from the “false accusations!!1!” crowd), a misguided storyline on The Newsroom, and the usual assortment of random awfulness, it’s hard to see the good news. Of which there’s a little bit, partially in the form of Legos. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.) Read More This Week in Misogyny

This Week in Misogyny: I Can’t Even

I just can’t with some of these stories this week. The Cleveland abduction is feminism’s fault? Beyoncé puts girls at risk of becoming sex slaves? Women have to work an extra 12 years to earn the same amount as men? Seriously?? (Trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.) Read More This Week in Misogyny: I Can’t Even
