Here’s a few things we recommend reading over the break.
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 […]
Bring it on, brosephs. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
Happy Friday, ladyblogland! This week we’ll talk about two new campaigns to bring feminism to the masses, a truly absurd amount of terribleness, and a math lesson from John Oliver. (As usual, trigger warnings for just about everything apply.)
We’re going to mix things up this week and start with some good news. Don’t worry, there’s still plenty of awfulness to get through after that! Seriously, so many terrible people. I’m sorry. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
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.)
Happy belated Equal Pay Day! Let’s see who’s been terrible this week, find out why people need to show the love to Sansa Stark and Black Widow, and, apparently, go to the restroom together. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
Welcome to another roundup of misogyny news! Fortunately this week wasn’t nearly as horrible as last week, and we even have some good stuff to report. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
Oh dear. There is just so much wrong with the world this week. A little bit of good news, but a lot more that’s positively rage-inducing. At least there’s an awesome Stephen Colbert smackdown! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
I saw this on Facebook yesterday and thought I’d respond:
It’s Friday, y’all! Time to pay attention to the world one last time before you go into the cave that is catching up on your DVR, watching Netflix, reading a book, and maybe, if you’re lucky enough to live someplace sunny, go outside and have some fun. Today’s news starts with a downer but ends […]
Well, it’s been a great week talking sex with all you lovely Persephone commenters. This week we covered changing sexuality, masturbation, slut shaming, and the discovery of sexual pleasuuuuure.
It is one of the scariest things about being a parent. It’s one of the scariest things about being a teenager. It’s been known to turn grown men into quivering piles of embarrassed goo. It is The Talk. I hear about parent groups protesting Sex Ed in schools and I wonder what the hell is […]
