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 […]

This Week in Misogyny is Staging a Topless Protest

We’ve got lots of cool readings this week, ranging from confused MRAs who don’t understand cat-based satire to why Cosmo‘s sex positions for lesbians are ridiculous. But there’s a lot of bad news too, including Ray Rice’s two-fucking-game suspension, assaults at SDCC, and slut-shaming Nicki Minaj and the Bachelorette. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much […]

This Week in Misogyny is Looking on the Bright Side

Hallelujah, I’ve got some good news to balance out the bad this week. Given how patently absurd some of the bad is, I think we’ll all need it! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)

This Week in Misogyny is The Tits

If there was ever a week to remember not to read the comments, it was this week. So much concern for Angelina Jolie’s boobs! And did you know feminism is to blame for gonorrhea and cheating husbands, while also being over? Neither did I! (Trigger warnings for the usual suspects apply.)

New Show Recap: Parenthood, Episode 4.14, “One Step Forward, Two Steps Back”

This week’s Parenthood moves ahead a few story lines, ignores a few, and brings Ryan back for a second chance at work and love. At the end of the episode, things are starting to get back to the way things where at the beginning of the season. Which is a good thing, because there’s only […]

“Study Says Big Boobs Give You Cancer!!” (Eh, Maybe Not)

A study was released last week that claims to have found a possible genetic link between breast cancer and larger bra sizes. While it hasn’t gotten much coverage, most of the headlines I’ve seen about it make it sound like a done deal: those of us with large breasts are more likely to develop breast […]
