Happy Friday, everyone. Lots to cover this week with everything from 2015 Emmy nominations to new birth control laws to Pluto finally getting its close-up. Let’s get started:
Happy Friday, one and all. I am looking forward to the weekend because my birthday is on Sunday, but yes, yes, let’s get to the actual news. Lots to cover, so let’s get started:
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. What would you add to this list?
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.)
Here’s what we read and talked about this week.
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 […]
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 […]
The major focus this week has been on the celebrity nude photo “leak” scandal (which wasn’t a leak at all; the pictures were stolen). Other people managed to be terrible too, of course! This shit never stops. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
Lupita Nyong’o is my new patronus.
Mercifully, there wasn’t a lot of news this week, though Reddit continues to be terrible and Pat Robertson proved once again what a moron he is. However, I’ve got a ton of good posts from elsewhere on the internet for y’all to read, on topics ranging from Gisele Bündchen’s breastfeeding controversy to progressives who still […]
As much as I love my imaginary bestie, Olivia Benson, her show’s “ripped from the headlines” doesn’t hold a candle to how The Good Wife does it. This week, Florrick, Agos, Lockhart, and Gardner point the CBS eye at The Internet’s Front Page. Wow. Much legal. So argue.
Oh, misogyny. It never stops, does it? This week we’re catching up on three weeks worth of awful, so brace yourselves. Plus, you get to find out why I’m not friends with very many people from high school! (Yes, it’s disgustingly relevant and you probably already saw the story.) As usual, trigger warnings for pretty […]
From rape in Bolivia to Doctor Who, ladyblogland delivered.
The world continues to be a horrible place this week. Let’s keep fighting the good fight, ladies! (Trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
