This Week in Misogyny: No Nudes is Good Nudes

The major focus this week has been on the celebrity nude photo “leak” scandal (which wasn’t a leak at all; the pictures were stolen). Other people managed to be terrible too, of course!

For instance: as a child, I spent hours sculpting the characters for the stories I was of course going to write — excel spreadsheets with the color of hair, shape of forehead, style of dress, and on and on and on. The stories themselves never got all that far off the ground. Read More Leagues and Leagues of Remarkable Women

This Week in Misogyny is Getting Pissed Off

Another week, another massive list of misogyny in the news. But never fear! This week there’s some misandry and penises to cheer you up. Ladies love misandry and penises! (Trigger warnings for just about everything apply.) Read More This Week in Misogyny is Getting Pissed Off
