This week we’ve got some good news, some Oscars news, and the usual assortment of fucked up shit. Let’s get down to business. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.) Continue reading
Dear Decent Men,
This is not a letter to misogynists or selfish jerks, who aren’t going to pay attention to what I have to say anyway. It’s a letter to good, decent men who might not realize that they’re doing something that really frustrates a lot of women in their lives. It’s a letter to ask you to please start being more aware of your body and stop forcing it into other people’s personal space — especially women’s personal space. Continue reading
Q. Can I see your boobs? Continue reading
Q. Why are you guys bitch about things all day? Do you have a everyday period cycle if so… Then you really need to get it checked out:) Continue reading
Aye yi yi yi yi, this episode. *sigh* Let’s just get it over with.
Roe v. Wade turned 41 years old yesterday. Happy birthday, choice! Here’s hoping for many more. We’ve got some good news in the abortion fight, mixed news in advertising, and a bonus section on LGBTQ issues. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.) Continue reading
Looks like Wisconsin, Virginia, Texas, and Louisiana are in a fight to see which one can be the shittiest this week. (No disrespect to the rational people of those states, only sympathy.) Sweden of all places might have them beat, though! Let’s get down to the nitty gritty, shall we? (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.) Continue reading
Mercifully, there wasn’t a lot of news this week, though Reddit continues to be terrible and Pat Robertson proved once again what a moron he is. However, I’ve got a ton of good posts from elsewhere on the internet for y’all to read, on topics ranging from Gisele Bündchen’s breastfeeding controversy to progressives who still have misogynist attitudes. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.) Continue reading
Oh dear. There is just so much wrong with the world this week. A little bit of good news, but a lot more that’s positively rage-inducing. At least there’s an awesome Stephen Colbert smackdown! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.) Continue reading
SPOILER ALERT. Do not pass go if you haven’t seen this film yet and do not want spoilers. If you have seen it or don’t care about spoilers, welcome.
What’s a woman to do when she hates horror movies but loves Halloween? Turn to Bollywood, of course!

Last week, the scientist behind the great blog The Urban Scientist , DNLee, was approached by Biology Online for a once a month, unpaid writing gig. When she turned it down, the response from one of the site’s editors was — let’s just call it “unbelievable.” But to add injury to an insult, when she wrote about the experience on her blog, which is hosted by Scientific American, SA pulled the story. Isis the Scientist has been covering the story since it happened and looked into the situation with SA. She has interesting things to say about the mysterious disappearing blog post. But more importantly, as a friend of DNLee, she also has the text of the missing post. DNLee has given her permission to have her words reproduced and reblogged via Isis the Scientist. What follows is her account of the Biology Online interaction: Continue reading
I took last week off from recapping the misogynistic crap in the news because, for once, I couldn’t find that much to report on! But then this week happened, and it’s like the world decided to make up for lost time. I should have known. Continue reading
