Lady Reads is a bit heavy on the pop culture this week, but that’s just because so much cool news came out! But don’t worry, we’ve got dick jokes and FEELS too!
More serious stuff this week than last, but the posts were just too good to pass up. Click on through to read about misgendering raptors, ~*~sarcasm~*~ online, and lots of other cool stuff!
Over the past week, there’s been quite a bit of coverage of Caitlyn Jenner, so we’ve found a few posts you can use to refute the ignorant haters. We’ve also got lots of good reads about feminism and other social justice topics, pop culture, a bit of science (with an unfortunate side of sexism), and some […]
We’re reading some good stuff this week, including analysis of how some white people are more forgiving of admitted pedophiles than of unarmed black kids who are killed by police, books by writers of color to add to your summer reading list, and the missing men of Game of Thrones.

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.)
I am a sucker for podcasts. I think they might be the only way radio talk shows survive in the apocalyptic wasteland that is sure to come. Having any subject at the click of a mouse makes it so much easier than trying to surf a radio until you find the angry blowhard you want […]
While the snow came down, the ladyblogs blogged and the readers read. Which is just about all snow is good for facilitating in my opinion. Here’s what we read this week.

These movies aren’t guilty pleasures. They aren’t the movies you actively seek out, or suddenly crave in the middle of the night.
One of the things I love about ladyblogland is how easy it is to bring a feminist perspective to events. There were a few gems this past week.
So our friend and badass, Joanna Robinson, of Pajiba and other places, knows how the Internet works.
Nice Guys™ and MRAs! “Fake” geek girls and cosplayers! Lesbian cookies! There’s something for everyone this week. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
