It’s misogyny time! We’ve got one victory in the abortion-rights fight (but more bad news), a fantastic Twitter hashtag in response to a horrible “motivational” speaker, Fox News idiocy, and the best Beastie Boys cover ever! 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
Oh kittens, it never stops. The good news is mostly short-lived, and people continue to be terrible. This week has been a rollercoaster in Texas and MRAs have stooped to a new low, but at least if you’re pregnant in Pennsylvania, strangers can’t randomly touch you anymore without risking a fine. Progress? (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.) Continue reading
Nice Guys™ and MRAs! “Fake” geek girls and cosplayers! Lesbian cookies! There’s something for everyone this week. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.) Continue reading
The world seems to have been slightly less terrible than usual last week, at least when it comes to misogynistic attacks on women. Slightly. 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.) Continue reading
Oh, lovely kids, rejoice! We have returned to another week of the news. Like the days that rise and fall, what happens in our world changes at the drop of a coin. Of course, it’s easy to wax poetic if you’re like me, who, in a recent attempt to indulge my sanity, has been avoiding the state of our world by binge-drinking cartoons and cat videos. Coping mechanisms, ahoy! Nonetheless, we come back to let you know what’s going on in this good world. Shall we? Continue reading
Once again, we find ourselves with two weeks’ worth of misogyny to round up. Can’t the world ever cut us a break? (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.) Continue reading
I’ve had it up to here with all the anti-choice, anti-woman BS in the world. Who’s with me? Here’s your weekly roundup of all the awfulness you might have missed. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.) Continue reading
It’s been an abortion-palooza across America! Let’s take this one shitty state at a time. (Trigger warning for discussions of abortion, rape, and incest.) Continue reading
I don’t know about you, but I’m exhausted from the ups and downs in the news this week. Wendy Davis is a big damn hero, but her efforts may be for nothing. SCOTUS’s decision on DOMA was a win forâ€¦ conservatives? My head is reeling. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.) Continue reading
It’s one of those news days where things are interesting but nothing is as awesome as the overturn of DOMA and Prop. 8. But let’s see what’s going on, shall we?
You know that old saying about the news, “If it bleeds, it leads”? This weekly post is the opposite of that.
Hey! It’s news! Obama had the worst week ever and a bunch of other bad things happened, but it’s Friday and we all get to sleep in tomorrow.
Today’s list is full of some great work that highlights ladyblogging at its best: insightful, funny, and just plain awesome. Read all about it. Continue reading
Kittens, it’s Wednesday. That means we have survived another few days, which is a damn miracle if you gauge it by how last week went. Lord, I’m surprised we made it this far. Continue reading
