Friday News Bites: #SpringValleyHigh, Meaty Bits + More

Hello, unicorns. This week’s News Bites have more entertainment stories than usual, but some weeks, maybe we need that. First though, let’s get into more serious matters:

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 Has a Black Belt in Gender Judo

Oh, what a shock, Congress is being useless once again when it comes to securing rights for women. And let’s all direct our middle fingers in the general direction of the Women Against Feminism Tumblr. Sigh. At least Thor’s a lady now? I’ll take whatever good news I can get. (As usual, trigger warnings for […]

This Week in Misogyny: Hobby Lobby Fallout

You didn’t think we were finished talking about the Hobby Lobby decision, did you? Let’s get this all out of the way so we can talk about all the other misogyny news later.

This Week in Misogyny is 1,000,000% Done

This week has been pretty much the worst. The SCOTUS decision in the Hobby Lobby case obviously captivated most of our attention, but the rest of the world didn’t stop being awful either. Fucking hell. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.) *Programming note: We’re taking tomorrow off to eat delicious cook-out food […]

This Open Thread Goes Out To The SCOTUS Hobby Lobby Ruling

Here SCOTUS, let me sing you the song of my birth control-seeking people.

I put these links together before the Hobby Lobby decision, and I’m sure much will be written about it this week. We’ll start off with Ginsburg’s dissent and then move on to the ladyblogland that was before SCOTUS made us all cry tears of rage.

This Week in Misogyny is a Magical Unicorn

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.)

Boys, Humor, and Politics

I like to joke that I have 3 boys, ages 17, 20, and 47. One is my husband — cue rim shot. Husband 2.0 came along when I was a single mother with really young kids. He proceeded to endear himself to them by doing silly impressions (his Yoda and Scooby-Doo sort of mesh together) and inventing […]

This Week in Misogyny is One Big Pile of Shit

Buckle up, everyone, it’s about to get rough up in here. Hobby Lobby went before the Supreme Court this week, so that could really suck if the court sides with them. Our new weekly list of terrible people is just ridiculous today, and schools are also being particularly shitty. But to balance that out, we […]
