This week we talked about the overwhelming whiteness of Hollywood award season and honored Martin Luther King Jr.
What do butts, sea turtles, and disconcerting wedding dress names have in common? You’ll find them all in this week’s lady reads!
Trigger Warning: This post contains discussion of rape and sexual assault. Let me start by saying that Reign is a great show. I started watching during the break between seasons one and two and haven’t turned back since. In a lot of ways, Reign is typical CW fare, pretty people’s pretty problems, but in others, it’s a very progressive […]
There was a ton of great writing about Bill Cosby this week, and because there needs to be balance in the universe or some shit, a corresponding amount of truly heinous commentary. Let’s dive on in. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
GamerGaters are still rearing their ugly heads this week, to the surprise of precisely no one. We also have some not-good news for everyone who was so excited that the Nigerian schoolgirls might have been on their way home, but at least the massive list of terrible people is somewhat mitigated by a bunch of awesome […]
There’s oh-so-much misogyny to cover this week, including a larger-than-usual dose of transphobia, lots of cool study findings, and several Twitter accounts you’re going to want to go follow right now. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
Even just typing those words in the title has left me with a feeling of such relief that I struggle to convey it. For every person who nods her head knowingly when you recount a story of street harassment, there is someone who scoffs. For every anonymous stranger on the Internet who stars or likes […]
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 […]
Raise your hand if you’re mad as hell at the Supreme Court right about now. Yup, thought so. To find out who else you should be mad at this week, let’s take a look at the rest of the news. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
Given the amount of discussion lately about gender politics, violence, and feminism (Elliot Rodger, #YesAllWomen, “Not all men!”), I’ve discovered a somewhat startling fact: men, in general, have no idea how many different things women do as a matter of course in the name of keeping safe. Like, no clue. So I polled the P-Mag […]
It’s been another banner week for misogyny news. Several studies were published that will likely depress you, and the weekly roundup of terrible people will probably piss you off. There’s some fun stuff at the end, though! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
Is Hillary Clinton responsible for the Boko Haram kidnappings (and is she hiding brain damage from us)? Why did the New York Times fire Jill Abramson? Are you smarter than the average American? Let’s see if we can answer these questions and more. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
Whew, things are moving along…
“We don’t hurt little girls in Dorne.” “Everywhere in the world, they hurt little girls.”
I owe you an apology.
