Happy Friday, Unicorns. It’s time for your (favorite?) weekly round-up of politics, science, entertainment and other newsy bits from around the interwub. Let’s get started.
Happy Friday, everyone! In addition to all the sciencin’ and entertainment news, we have some politics-related stories to cover, so let’s get started:
Hello, fellow unicorns. This week, we’re a bit more international with our news bites, and I also have a few bonus stories that amused me. With all the horrible things that happen, it’s good to find a few points of light. Let’s get to it.
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 […]
Greetings, Persephoneers. We have a varied roundup of news stories this week, but still quite a bit about police misconduct. Let’s get started, and we’ll end on an up-note, I promise.
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.)
Happy Yom Kippur and Eid Mubarrak to all people who are celebrating holidays this past week!
I just can’t, y’all. CANNOT. Even without the Ray Rice video debacle, there was still an absurd amount of news this week. Come on in to find out which surprising city may be passing a racist abortion ban, who thinks women are penis homes, and why white people need to shut up about butts and […]
We’ve got lots of cool readings this week, ranging from confused MRAs who don’t understand cat-based satire to why Cosmo‘s sex positions for lesbians are ridiculous. But there’s a lot of bad news too, including Ray Rice’s two-fucking-game suspension, assaults at SDCC, and slut-shaming Nicki Minaj and the Bachelorette. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much […]
About all I can say about this week is that it wasn’t quite as awful as last week. The French Open seems to be bringing out the worst in people, politicians continue to be idiots, and dress codes continue to be absurd. But at least we’re getting some cool LEGOs! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty […]
Because why are we still calling it a walk of shame anyway? Oh right, because people are terrible. Let’s see just how terrible people were this week! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
Greetings, Persephoneers! After our winter break and my vacation, we are back with some Friday News Bites, and this time, they’re mostly of the LGBT variety. First though, let’s have two fantastic best friends wish us a Happy New Year…
If you’re a furloughed government employee, have I got some good news for you at the end of this post! The rest of the news… not so good. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
Another week, another massive list of misogyny in the news. But never fear! This week there’s some misandry and penises to cheer you up. Ladies love misandry and penises! (Trigger warnings for just about everything apply.)
Once again, we find ourselves with two weeks’ worth of misogyny to round up. Can’t the world ever cut us a break? (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
