We’re keeping it short and sweet this week, but quality over quantity, right?
This Week in Misogyny
Oh, dearies, it was another week of fuckery in the world. Between Rolling Stone throwing a source under the bus when inconsistencies rose in her story (cue gloating from the “false accusations!!1!” crowd), a misguided storyline on The Newsroom, and the usual assortment of random awfulness, it’s hard to see the good news. Of which there’s a […]
Can we all go move to an island somewhere or something? Because the next two years with Republicans running the House and Senate are NOT looking fun. And it was a week of shitstorms and terrible people and all kinds of other assorted fuckery. Fun times! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
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 was something said to me last week on Facebook, when I said that I was unhappy that a gay couple in East Texas had been thrown out of a restaurant with the remark, “We do not like f**s.”
Y’all, it has been quite the week. We actually have a little bit of good news, but the rest is pretty bleak. Of course, the killings in Santa Barbara dominated the news (meriting a separate post), but here’s everything else that you might have missed. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
Every now and then, a movie catch phrase comes along that both works perfectly in context, and comes in handy in real life. “Toto, I’ve a feeling we aren’t in Kansas anymore,” “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn,” and “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!” come to […]

My Hijab is a Rainbow
Editor’s note: This post originally appeared here: My hijab is a rainbow, by Sonia, on Black Feminists Manchester. It appears here with permission. Go read the site! It’s great! ‘’Paki, terrorist, black bitch, let’s paki bash, you aren’t gay, you’re Muslim.’’ Now those statements sound like they come from the EDL or BNP, but they […]
Butt Boys: Sex on the Micro-side
A preamble, my lambs. Butt play for men is still a touchy topic. Nary will you see many straight men rushing to tell of their adventures with butt plugs, toys, and butt sex, much less the enjoyment that can come from it.
Law and politics have always intrigued me. When I was 8, I wanted to be a lawyer and a politician. I devoured any book about politics or legal matters that I could. I loved reading about Thomas Jefferson especially. His take on American Politics in the early days was something with which I enthusiastically agreed. […]
Why Do We Test Things We Already Know?
When the results of new scientific or sociological studies are published, a common response is, “Why in the world did we waste money to study that?” Sometimes it’s because the topic seems so obscure as to have no obvious merit, though within its field it may give invaluable insight or could cast light on other problems […]
Is the word horribly offensive? Kind of. Are there worse words? Definitely. Am I overreacting? Pshh, being an angry feminist is my job!
[TRIGGER WARNING FOR SELF-INJURY] For every awesome thing the Internet does, you can almost guarantee that ten truly horrific things will pop up to cancel your renewed faith in humanity. As much as the online world can be a haven for some, it can be a hell for others, as we’ve seen in numerous accounts […]
Well, well, well, look what the kittens drug in.
