pileofmonkeys is one of my favorite people in the whole world, and I didn’t even know she existed before P-mag. This post brought me to tears and made me cheer at the same time. ~Selena
I love everything Ailanthus writes because of her unique combination of brilliance and gentle humor. This post about opals was part of a larger series on gems, and it’s long been one of my favorite articles here. ~Selena
I love this post in particular by Hillary because she always makes an effort to look at any situation she examines from multiple perspectives. ~Selena
This is one of my favorite posts we’ve ever run. I think Monica does a particularly great job of painting a picture and getting her audience’s attention. ~Selena
Liz is a great writer and I was really glad she decided ot share her Myth of Modesty series here with us. Pure, logical tack down – that’s one of my favorite things. -SlayBelle
As a member of Generation X myself, I’ve often wondered why there’s so little discussion of us in popular discourse. PMag was one of the first places I came that talked about things that were important to my not-quite-Greatest Generation. And, come on, Heathers is awesome. – Slay As a teenager in the late eighties, […]
Lauren sMash is another amazingly talented writer, whose work has consistently knocked my socks off. I thought this was one of the best pieces that thoroughly debunks the whole “exotic-fetishization-of-your-race-as-a-compliment” and what it’s like to navigate the dating world as a person who’s desired as a stereotype, not as a whole person. – Coco Papy
I love this piece because it asks questions about something that most of us have conflicted feelings on. I love pron! I hate money shots! Buck Angel is awesome! Buck Angel is a dick! Oooh, sex! OOOOOh, thats not sex! Nothing inspires a good, hearty conversation like the place of porn in our culture and […]
Miz J, Miz J, Miz J: I will never not forgive this woman for raising the bar on being real. As a woman who’s had her sex life used to define her all her life, Miz J’s piece came at a particular time when I said, “Fuck it. I am promiscuous. I identify as a […]
I first read this piece when I was coming to terms with my own, actual “crazy” (note to readers: I’m a fan of reclaiming my own cray, but I refrain from putting that on anyone else). Not only is the piece humorous, but it looks at one of the greatest tortures of all: dating in […]
As my daughter gets older, I realize the serious gap in my knowledge when it comes to Badass Ladies of History. Reading about Grace Sherwood, and the history behind “Witchduck Road” stuck with me. When my daughter is old enough, she’s going to love our archive of Bad Ass Ladies. -Sally J.
Here on the Lady Blog, it makes sense that we talk about the lady bleeding. I found this article particularly helpful in deciding if reusable supplies would be a good idea during my ladies’ days. Thank you, Sara B., for doing the heavy lifting on this one. -Sally J
One of the best things about the Persephone community is “meeting” other parents. I loved “meeting” Sara-the-mom (as opposed to Sara-the-writer) in this post. -Sally J.
Ah Indianapolis. Indianapolis is the city that brought Selena and me together. Do I need any other reason to pick this post as one of my favorites? -Sally J.
This post has stuck with me for some reason. It pops into my head every time I smell a jug of milk before using it. It also gave me a solid base of information to use when I must explain to my children that they can still eat something, even if it is past the […]
