Earlier this week, Target announced that they’ll be removing unnecessarily gender-specific signs and color-coded decorations from some departments, including the toy aisles and children’s bedding. Seems like a small change that shouldn’t be cause for any outrage, right? Alas, no. Target’s Facebook page is full of angry (and largely ungrammatical) posts from people vowing to never […]
After covering what’s going on in Ferguson and the #BlackLivesMatter movement, let’s get to other news stories of note this week.
2014 is finally over and done with, and we’re hoping that 2015 is better to the people of color in America.
With all the terrible things going on this week, we actually have a few spots of good news this week. Not many, but I’ll take what I can get! Plus, this week’s BAMFs are even more badass than usual, and two of them are only 7 years old. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything […]
It’s been a busy week, so let’s get to it!
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 […]
So many people were truly terrible this week, but we’ve got a few awesome people to try to balance them out. And if you somehow missed the worst Photoshop ever, you’re gonna love this week’s TWiM! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
It is a well-established fact that I am cheap. Bargain shopping is my meditation.
A few weeks ago I found myself at Target with a coupon for any of their Up & Up store brand nail polish removers. Since I had a new bottle of acetone at home already, I decided to give their nail polish remover pads a try. Verdict: I think I’m in love!
For some reason, I keep finding myself in weird shopping situations. In June, it was the Victoria’s Secret Semi-Annual Sale. On Tuesday, it was the Missoni for Target release day. All I wanted was some toothpaste, but I ended up caught in the hysteria.
Okay, first off, we don’t make it a habit to bone in front of the animals. We are actually really adamant about locking all of them out of the room when the sexy-times are nigh, which is no small feat since we currently have 4 cats and a dog that have some serious separation issues and are […]
Quinoa has become much more popular the past few years, but some questions remain. What is quinoa? How do I make quinoa? And most importantly, how the heck do I say “quinoa”?
Last week, equality advocates discovered that Chick-Fil-A’s charitable arm, the WinShape Foundation, specifically bars homosexuals from attending or using their retreat facilities. Their statement on the matter was “WinShape Retreat defines marriage from the Biblical standard as being between one man and one woman. Groups/Individuals are welcome who offer wholesome, educational conferences and programs that are compatible with Biblical values and WinShape’s purpose.” At this news, many gay-rights advocates are calling for a boycott of Chick-Fil-A. What’s a good old southern gal who believes in marriage equality, but really loves her fried chicken and pickles supposed to do? And what effect do moral boycotts have, anyway?
The single biggest new item this week was the shooting in Tucson, which so overshadowed, among other things, the first full work week of the 112th Congress, that most of today’s round-up items are directly or tangentially related to it. As in the wake of Columbine, both sides of the gun rights debate have proposed […]
I read yesterday that several celebrities, most notably Lady Gaga, are joining Alicia Keys in her fundraising efforts for Keys’ charity, Keep A Child Alive. The goal is to raise $1 million as quickly as possible in honor of World AIDS Day, which is Wednesday. So far so good, right? The only thing that I […]
