Did you enjoy spreading some internet rumors? Are you ready for some more falsehoods and untruths (with a few sort of real things sprinkled in for the internet sleuths)?
What did you read in Ladyblogland this week?
“Awareness” has gone too far. TOO FAR. And there’s plenty of truly tragic news this week to go along with the shit that’s merely infuriating. But if you can make it through to the end, Jessica Williams will make it all better. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
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.)
It’s not because of the money.
Are you ready for some misogyny? Yeah, me neither. But if we must… read on for an update on the kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls, to see why Jezebel made my list of terrible people, and for a healthy dose of venting courtesy of our friends at Pajiba. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
This week we’ve got some good news, some Oscars news, and the usual assortment of fucked up shit. Let’s get down to business. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
That don’t bother me at all. Plenty of the news appetizers are quite bothersome, however.
The best thing this week is the product of Anita Sarkeesian’s tropes vs. women in video games work. There’s also some Bikini Kill awesomeness. Onward!
This week’s movie club selection was Winter’s Bone. Holy crap was that dark.
