This Week in Misogyny Will Take “That’s Sexist!” for $400, Alex

This week, let’s talk about why teen girls should think about getting IUDs, why some men are weirdly excited to be called “evil,” and why no app can stop sexual assault. Also, weddings and babies! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)

This Week in Misogyny Found Some Sexist Pigs

Happy Friday, everyone! It’s time to learn about all the things that sucked this week! Hooray! Let’s talk about Miss America, the NFL, and why you really should smile more, ladies! Trust me on that one. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)

This Week in Misogyny is Capsy Swearing

I just can’t, y’all. CANNOT. Even without the Ray Rice video debacle, there was still an absurd amount of news this week. Come on in to find out which surprising city may be passing a racist abortion ban, who thinks women are penis homes, and why white people need to shut up about butts and […]

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! This shit never stops. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)

This Week in Misogyny is Not a Trophy Wife

Oh, Republicans. Y’all need to stop. So do a lot of other people. But we also get to find out why men shouldn’t wear suits (yes they should!), check out some misandristic accessories, and have a moon party! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)

This Week in Misogyny Loves Feminism and SpaceX

About all I can say about this week is that it wasn’t quite as awful as last week. The French Open seems to be bringing out the worst in people, politicians continue to be idiots, and dress codes continue to be absurd. But at least we’re getting some cool LEGOs! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty […]

This Week in Misogyny Wants Some Potato Skins

It’s been another banner week for misogyny news. Several studies were published that will likely depress you, and the weekly roundup of terrible people will probably piss you off. There’s some fun stuff at the end, though! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)

This Week in Misogyny is Not a Terrorist

Is Hillary Clinton responsible for the Boko Haram kidnappings (and is she hiding brain damage from us)? Why did the New York Times fire Jill Abramson? Are you smarter than the average American? Let’s see if we can answer these questions and more. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)

This Week in Misogyny is Wearing Pants to the Prom

And the hits just keep on rolling, y’all. State legislatures have been busy passing even more anti-abortion bills that are probably unconstitutional, but that’s ok; we can pick up contraceptives at the 7-11! We’ve got another batch of terrible people, but there are a few others who have earned high fives this week. (As usual, […]

This Week in Misogyny: I Can’t Even

I just can’t with some of these stories this week. The Cleveland abduction is feminism’s fault? Beyoncé puts girls at risk of becoming sex slaves? Women have to work an extra 12 years to earn the same amount as men? Seriously?? (Trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)

It’s time to do a little reading. And then watch an adorable owl.

No Dress Code, No Rules, No Fashion Identity.

I just started my first full-time job in the “real world” at an office with no dress code. Currently, my daily life is akin to the dread that only a party invitation calling for business or resort casual could inspire.
