Oh man, everything is wonderful and terrible. The Internet hate fuel cycle has been in overdrive this week thanks to #OscarsSoWhite making the rounds, allowing us to add names to our Celebrity Shitlist.
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.)
This just in from ladyblogland: our pockets are too small!
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.)

Nothing quite raises my hackles like lazy journalism, and this week, I’m certainly not alone. Two different writers, Roxane Gay and Dustin Rowles, take on the body-shaming rampant in the media’s reaction to the film Identity Thief and the TV show Girls.
What makes someone a feminist? Let’s find out, shall we?
Welcome to the new week. Here’s some stuff to tide you over while you take an Internet break.

Let’s see”¦ Marnie and Hannah broke up”¦ Shosh discovered online dating”¦ Marnie and Hannah had a huge fight”¦ Someone other than Hannah published a book which, of course, sucked”¦ Katherine had a gentle Come to Jesus meeting with Jessa”¦ everyone in New York is looking for a bathroom”¦ and did I mention Marnie and Hannah broke up?
