This week we talked about the overwhelming whiteness of Hollywood award season and honored Martin Luther King Jr.
This past week saw the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in the U.S. While the nation mourned, many people of color could not forget the violence and Islamophobia that emerged #afterSeptember11.
Lady Reads is a bit heavy on the pop culture this week, but that’s just because so much cool news came out! But don’t worry, we’ve got dick jokes and FEELS too!
It’s that time of year when you may have to sit in a hot auditorium, or in a crowded stadium, or on a maze-like field to watch a loved one (or a distant relation) celebrate attaining another level of education. One thing that bonds both the graduates and the audience members together is their boundless fear […]
We’ve got a bit more news than usual this week since Sara’s on vacation, plus lots of other interesting things to read and watch.
New Yorkers, be sure to check out the recommended readings before hitting the voting booth in a couple weeks (you are voting in the primaries, right?) so you can be sure to vote for the feminist candidates, who aren’t necessarily the female candidates. We’ve also got updates on the misogyny of the Emmys, lots of terrible […]
What can I say about this week other than it was electric?
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 […]
Happy Friday, friends. We have a grab-bag of politicians making some … questionable decisions, LEGO being awesome, and the Amazon Overlords being rather Overlord-y. Let’s get started.
Happy Friday, everyone. Once again, our news roundup for this week is a mixed bag of good, bad, and varying degrees of amusing. And if you remember my story from last week about those skin-bound books at Harvard, I’ve got a relieving update. Let’s get to it, yes?
Today I finally saw Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. It was an okay-ish movie, I suppose. I certainly didn’t see anything spectacular enough to warrant the two-hour run time. Back for another go-round, loveable doofus Ron Burgundy rounded up his merry band of newsmen to begin broadcasting on the nation’s first 24-hour news channel. Some […]
I don’t think I even need to describe the chaotic spectacle that happened last week when #CancelColbert started trending on Twitter. If you’re active on social media or you read blogs or maybe you watch The Colbert Report on a regular basis, then you might already be familiar with the unfortunate events that have been […]
I am an avid Twitter user. I think it’s probably the best way that celebrities, random strangers, and peoples’ cats can communicate with one another. It’s a great promotion tool. It’s also an easy place for bigotry, intended or unintended to come out. This, unfortunately, leads to us finding out some of our favorite people […]
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.)
What the”¦ Huh? What? WTF?!
