You know who wasn’t truly outrageous? Jem, the ’80s cartoon rock star. She wasn’t outrageous at all. Being all about “synergy” in her band the Hologramsjust made it seem like she was at a board meeting. Wow. How outrageous. You go, Jem. Stormer (of Jem’s rival band, the Misfits) was pretty kickass, though. She played the keytar and wasn’t super cool about the Misfits being dicks to the Holograms all the time. What made her even cooler was her relationship with Kimber from the Holograms. They went off and recorded an album together after feeling unappreciated by their respective...

A new study indicates shame and embarrassment are common emotions in the field—composed of more than 90 percent women—simply because romance novels are seen as silly trash for women. Despite romance novelists’ hard work and dedication to their craft, it seems this negative reputation is here to stay. According to sociologists Jennifer Lois and Joanna Gregson, “The genre is written by women, for women, about women – and that’s where the stigma comes from.” It’s unfortunate for these writers to deal with backlash despite being highly successful...
In news that will shock exactly no one, a newly revealed deposition details Bill Cosby’s abuses of his power in manipulating and attacking women. Cosby discusses his relationship with Andrea Constand in the early 2000s. “He painted his relationship with Ms. Constand as one of mentor and mentee, casting himself in the role of an experienced guide and offering her the benefit of his contacts, fame, and experience,” The New York Times writes.
