Hi lovelies, this week’s news is a little heavy with a shooting at a university in Pakistan, but there’s good news on the women’s education and health fronts. So here we go.
You’re about to get mooned (by the actual moon’s backside) and flashed (by Lenny Kravitz). Also, don’t mess with armadillos or walruses. They aren’t having it.
Today, we answer some of your most pressing questions. What would a Recency-era version of Men’s Fitness look like? Can dinosaurs run in heels? Are you fucking kidding me?!?! (We get that one a lot.)
So this week might have veered a tiny bit back into “This Week in Misogyny” territory, but it’s not my fault a bunch of people have been sucking. But there’s also a pretty good helping of fun and badassery! And gifs.
We’ll have a lot more about the Freddie Gray protests in Baltimore in next week’s PoC News update, but we’d be remiss not to include a few posts you might need over the weekend to refute the idiots in your life. In happier news, we’ve also got stories about the Notorious RBG, trolling GamerGaters, and Game of Thrones.
Good news from the Supreme Court? Free nipples? “Solidarity” gone horribly wrong? Must be time to update your reading list!
Two weeks later, my hair is still a topic of conversation.
In a recent study at the University of North Dakota, nearly one third of the men surveyed said they would force a woman to have sex, so long as they wouldn’t face any consequences. While there are a whole lot of truly disturbing findings in that study, there are also several misconceptions that need to be […]
I was given The Supergirls: Fashion, Feminism, Fantasy, and the History of Comic Book Heroines for Christmas by my lovely wife. She was really excited for me to read the book because feminism and comic books are two of my favorite topics. Unfortunately, I was disappointed by this book.
Maybe people are too busy preparing for the holidays to devote as much time as usual to being misogynistic pricks, because the news wasn’t nearly as bad this week as it usually is. It’s a Festivus miracle! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
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 […]
With all the terrible things going on this week, we actually have a few spots of good news this week. Not many, but I’ll take what I can get! Plus, this week’s BAMFs are even more badass than usual, and two of them are only 7 years old. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything […]
Ravishly’s Nikki Gloudeman went undercover in a PUA forum to see what kinds of awful things they say when they think they’re among friends. They were predictably terrible. TW misogyny.
Ah, it’s a short week because of Thanksgiving, so there can’t be that much to talk about, right? Well… The relatively low amount of shit to report on was balanced out by how truly terrible a lot of it was. Sorry! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
Citizens, there’s a ghost haunting the corridors of Westminster. A demented, racist ghost with delusions of grandeur.
