This Week in Misogyny: 2014 is Almost Over, Finally

Maybe people are too busy preparing for the holidays to devote as much time as usual to being misogynistic pricks, because the news wasn’t nearly as bad this week as it usually is. It’s a Festivus miracle! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)

Study Reveals Sexual Harassment Leads To “Insidious Trauma”

For many women, sexual harassment is (sadly) common. Those of us who experience it frequently are all too familiar with its negative effects… to the extent that it’s hard to understand how anyone could possibly not understand such impacts. The truth is, though, that many persist in believing harassment doesn’t really do harm; that, to use […]

This Week in Misogyny Stands With #Ferguson

Ah, it’s a short week because of Thanksgiving, so there can’t be that much to talk about, right? Well… The relatively low amount of shit to report on was balanced out by how truly terrible a lot of it was. Sorry! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)

An Insider’s Look At The Strangely Sexist World Of Waitressing

Like more than 2 million waiters and waitresses across the country, I know what it’s like to fill up water carafes while balancing a plate in the other hand, how to feign joy while crooning “happy birthday” to unsuspecting patrons, and the mnemonic devices necessary for memorizing specials, salad dressings and sides. And as for […]

This Week in Misogyny is So Not Basic

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 […]

This Week in Misogyny Is Not Down with Fracking for the Cure

“Awareness” has gone too far. TOO FAR. And there’s plenty of truly tragic news this week to go along with the shit that’s merely infuriating. But if you can make it through to the end, Jessica Williams will make it all better. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)

This Week in Misogyny

I love debunking hoaxes and bullshit “studies.” I hate all the other terrible things I have to tell you about. You win some, you lose some. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)

This Week in Misogyny Loves Feminism and SpaceX

About all I can say about this week is that it wasn’t quite as awful as last week. The French Open seems to be bringing out the worst in people, politicians continue to be idiots, and dress codes continue to be absurd. But at least we’re getting some cool LEGOs! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty […]

This Week in Misogyny is Your Brain on Engineering

Some schools may be on Passover/spring break this week, but misogyny didn’t take the week off. Instead, we’ve learned that young girls think it’s normal to be sexually harassed, that even women who become CEOs aren’t exempt from harassment, and that we shouldn’t try to earn the same wages as men if we ever want […]

This Week in Misogyny: In Which I Say “Fuck” a Lot

Looks like Wisconsin, Virginia, Texas, and Louisiana are in a fight to see which one can be the shittiest this week. (No disrespect to the rational people of those states, only sympathy.) Sweden of all places might have them beat, though! Let’s get down to the nitty gritty, shall we? (As usual, trigger warnings for […]

This Week in Misogyny is Getting Fed Up

I’ve had it up to here with all the anti-choice, anti-woman BS in the world. Who’s with me? Here’s your weekly roundup of all the awfulness you might have missed. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
