This week’s dispatches has the secret to biking in a skirt without flashing the world.

Backwards And In High Heels
Feminism is a complicated, messy topic, and if you ask three women about it, you’re likely to get four different answers. Some women don’t want to define themselves as feminist because it sounds anti-male, others disagree about how much sexism and discrimination exists, and you can always count on folks like Rush Limbaugh to disparage […]
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.)
How to Appeal to Women 101
No, this isn’t dating advice. (Although if the title piqued your interest, at least maybe you’ll read the article; much along the same lines as my advice to a friend writing a dissertation she hoped she’d eventually publish as a book, to whom I suggested the title “Heroic Themes In 18th Century French Literature, or […]
GOP Men And Our “Lady Parts”
I thought the GOP hit bottom with women voters in 2012, thanks to “legitimate rape,” “binders full of women,” etc., and I was looking forward to the “new and improved” party after its public autopsy and rebranding.
With the election wrapping up (cue simultaneous sighs of relief!), I will need to channel my opinionated sense of humor into other areas.
Tomorrow is election day. So vote! Your ladyparts depend on it. And vote the entire ballot! Those judges make a difference, probably more so than the bigger names because judges interpret the Constitution, and the Constitution gives rights to thinks like choice, access to birth control, voting rights, and more. The League of Women Voters […]
The Politics of Rape and Abortion
Most of you are aware by now of the comments made by Rep. Todd Akin of Missouri. But just in case you haven’t heard or read his statement, let me share it with you. (For those of you who have heard it and, like me, have it memorized, I think we can all agree that […]
Equal Pay for Equal Work: RADICAL
I spent this week deep in red country, and listened to a lot of Christian radio (what. It was either that or Justin Bieber, and I just couldn’t). It made me think a lot about spin, and how the language that each side uses affects the credibility as well as the emotions that any particular […]
Takedown: Rosie the Republican
You’ve heard, right? There is a war on women being fought, and it is being fought by”¦ the Democrats. At least, that’s what Fox News is saying, and this week’s Takedown crapdate capitalizes on this nonsense.
First and foremost: don’t forget to have set your clocks back yesterday! I know, you didn’t forget, and if you did, you’ve already had a hilarious mixup and realized your mistake. But I needed an excuse to complain about the fact that I only got 23 hours’ worth of birthday this year. Boo. Hiss.
WTF Virginia, Seriously?
I was invited to attend a Power For Choice event on June 4 in Arlington, Va., hosted by Virginia NARAL (National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League). I have been doing a little research for the event and what I have learned about anti-choice legislation in Virginia is disappointing at best and infuriating at worst.
