Friday News Bites: Second Nepal Earthquake, Women on 20s + More

Greetings, all! I’ve been away for a week, and I’m just now catching up on some of the things that have been happening in the U.S. and elsewhere. Sometimes being without the internet for a week makes one feel as though everything happens when one is not paying attention! Let’s get started:

This Week in Misogyny is So Not Basic

GamerGaters are still rearing their ugly heads this week, to the surprise of precisely no one. We also have some not-good news for everyone who was so excited that the Nigerian schoolgirls might have been on their way home, but at least the massive list of terrible people is somewhat mitigated by a bunch of awesome people and cool readings this week.

This Week in Misogyny Isn’t a Grave Threat to Fraternities

Happy Friday, ladyblogland! This week we’ll talk about two new campaigns to bring feminism to the masses, a truly absurd amount of terribleness, and a math lesson from John Oliver.

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. Come on in to find out which surprising city may be passing a racist abortion ban, who thinks women are penis homes, and why white people need to shut up about butts and Beyoncé.

This Week in Misogyny is All About the Misandry (Ironic or Otherwise)

We’re going to mix things up this week and start with some good news. Don’t worry, there’s still plenty of awfulness to get through after that! Seriously, so many terrible people. I’m sorry.

This Week in Misogyny is Sick of Victim-Blaming

It’s been a banner week at the Washington Post; they’ve earned top billing this week for publishing George Will’s latest inanity (though the New York Post has equal blame for that one) and an article that used completely irrelevant data to victim-blame single moms who are abused. Good job, assholes. Let’s see who else is keeping them company, because of course they weren’t the only terrible people out there. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)

This Week in Misogyny Loves Feminism and SpaceX

About all I can say about this week is that it wasn’t quite as awful as last week. The French Open seems to be bringing out the worst in people, politicians continue to be idiots, and dress codes continue to be absurd. But at least we’re getting some cool LEGOs! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.) Read More This Week in Misogyny Loves Feminism and SpaceX

Friday News Bites: Marriage Equality, Animal Awwws + More

In a stunning turn of events, I have mostly good news to share this week because I feel like we all need it. First though, let’s get the unpleasant and ridiculous out of the way.
