Dear Women Against Feminism, First, thank you for reading this and for listening (assuming that you are, or that someone else out there that empathizes with your Tumblr account is). It sometimes takes a lot of energy and gumption to jump into the fray with opinions you know many people will disagree with. It takes […]
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 […]
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.)
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!

I’ve had it up to here with all the anti-choice, anti-woman BS in the world. Who’s with me? Here’s your weekly roundup of all the awfulness you might have missed. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
Another week, another batch of misogynistic, patriarchal BS. Let’s go smash some things, shall we? [Trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.]
In recent celebrity feud news, Taylor Swift is out for the blood of feminist heroes Amy Poehler and Tina Fey and is invoking the tenets of feminism to do so. So who’s really in the wrong here?
I know, Valentine’s Day was yesterday. But every Valentine’s Day, I am internet-greeted by untold amounts of internalized misogyny under the guise of feminism or anti-capitalism or Radical Movement X, and yesterday was no exception. Every year, I roll my eyes and click past the judgmental essay or blurb or Facebook post and file it […]
