This Week in Lady Reads

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.

This Week in Misogyny is in Love with Gamora

This week y’all get a couple special sections, because dear lord was there a lot of religious (and atheist) misogyny this week, but to make up for it there’s also some vintage misandry and other cool books. Plus, the most delightful video about dick pics ever! Other than that, it’s business as usual, by which I […]

This Week in Misogyny is Staging a Topless Protest

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 […]

This Week in Misogyny is 1,000,000% Done

This week has been pretty much the worst. The SCOTUS decision in the Hobby Lobby case obviously captivated most of our attention, but the rest of the world didn’t stop being awful either. Fucking hell. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.) *Programming note: We’re taking tomorrow off to eat delicious cook-out food […]

This Week in Misogyny is Doing the Stride of Pride

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.)

This Week in Misogyny is Doubling Down

This series might have taken off for the holiday last week, but the world just kept on dealing out one piece of misogynistic crap after another. So much so that we’re doling out two misogyny posts this week. Gird your loins, ladies! (As usual, trigger warnings for just about everything apply.)

Badass Ladies of History: Ruth Bader Ginsberg

Ruth Bader Ginsberg (or RBG, as I affectionately call her in my mind) is a serious badass on the U.S. Supreme Court. Seriously, if I were a poet, I would write an ode to her. Instead, I’m going to give you a bulleted list of her awesomeness.

Ladyghosts of TV Past: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, S2, E13 “Surprise”

My people — before I was changed — they exchanged this as a sign of devotion. It’s a Claddagh ring. The hands represent friendship, the crown represents loyalty… and the heart… Well, you know… Wear it with the heart pointing towards you. It means you belong to somebody. Like this.

Women of the Supreme Court

A few years ago I realized that I could name more Duggar children than members of the Supreme Court.  I decided to change that and tried to do some research on the history of the SCOTUS, but it didn’t take long before I was bored and moved on to other pursuits.  But, with the SCOTUS […]
