When I realized there was no justice

The first time I realized that there was no such thing as justice may have come much later than most. Maybe it came earlier than most depending on which side of the proverbial “tracks” you stand on. Regardless, there was plenty beforehand that may have made me feel unfairly targeted while simultaneously feeling like I […]

Misogyny is Dead- or is that Killer?

The game Killer is Dead was recently made available to United States audiences and we picked up a copy to play. Do yourself a favor and watch the reviews and read up like here on IGN before you go in blind because you’re thinking, ‘a new game by Suda 51! Yay!’ I assure you, you […]

the last of us – a feminist perspective

The Last of Us– a highly anticipated and positively reviewed (unanimous 10s?) game– came out on Tuesday and has been in the PS3 since then.

How exciting is this? Italian parliament member, Licia Ronzulli brought her 6 week old daughter to work in a baby sling! Because why not?

beyond baby mamas: conversations with women of color

Here’s an interesting concept via a nifty blog by Stacia L Brown on being a single mother of color in America.  With the slut-shaming that many women (especially those who wind up single) are subjected to with the burdens of being “of color” in a predominantly white, heterosexist, and patriarchal culture, this should be an […]

Professor Breastfeeds in class– so what?!

Without getting “too deep” into the ridiculousness of being appalled by boobs, boob-feedings, or bringing your baby to your work when all else fails, here’s what I find grossly ironic: A professor of anthropology breastfed her baby in class. Yeah HI. Do you know what anthropology is? It’s the study of human cultures. You should […]

SNL hires a new woman comic who is funny and full figured!

Seriously, I love Bitch! Magazine. It almost goes without saying that their high writing quality and penchant for pop culture from a feminist perspective is always welcome. Today, the happy reading is on the Bitch highlight of SNL new-hire Aidy Bryant as the latest addition to cast of Saturday Night Live. You might think it […]
