There is a reason “Reasons my son is crying” is such a successful and hilarious blog concept: It’s all true. Small children melt down over a lot of things. The few times I’m not annoyed with the little blighters for being unreasonable, I catch myself envying them the joy of letting it all out. There […]
PoC News around the World
Did everyone have a great weekend? This past week was busy, so let’s get to it!
Breastfeeding and Babywearing Jewellery
It’s World Breastfeeding Week! In celebration of this, I thought I’d share some beautiful necklaces that can be worn to entertain little hands when breastfeeding or babywearing.
And now for all the non-Hobby Lobby misogyny news for those of us who are completely sick of hearing about how awful it all is. Not that these stories aren’t awful too! Heaven forbid. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
Ten Reasons I Breastfeed in Public
Lately, I’ve found myself breastfeeding in public more and more. This is clearly a problem for some, as the looks and mutterances I’ve received have made obvious. To clear things up, I want to talk about some of my thought processes while breastfeeding in public.
It’s been a banner week at the Washington Post; they’ve earned top billing this week for publishing George Will’s latest inanity (though the New York Post has equal blame for that one) and an article that used completely irrelevant data to victim-blame single moms who are abused. Good job, assholes. Let’s see who else is keeping them […]
Hi! My name’s Liz. I was at Concannon’s Bakery & Café this morning with my mom, my sister, and four great little kids. You chose to sit at the table next to us, even though the whole place was full of empty tables. We knew we were going to be a somewhat noisy group, so […]
Welcome to another roundup of misogyny news! Fortunately this week wasn’t nearly as horrible as last week, and we even have some good stuff to report. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
Because why are we still calling it a walk of shame anyway? Oh right, because people are terrible. Let’s see just how terrible people were this week! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
So many people were truly terrible this week, but we’ve got a few awesome people to try to balance them out. And if you somehow missed the worst Photoshop ever, you’re gonna love this week’s TWiM! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
There’s not too much news to report this week, though what little there is still manages to be rage-inducing. However, I have a ton of awesome recommended readings for you, from listicles about ridiculous sex advice and the ignorant things people ask trans* people to discussions about doxxing and victim-blaming. Let’s jump on in! (As usual, […]
Seriously, how could all this shit happen in just one week? And a distressing amount hit the news between when I turned in last week’s article and when it actually ran. Can we have a break, please? (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
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 […]
This Week in Misogyny
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 […]
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.)
