Off-color? Possibly. Inappropriate for an elected official? Maybe. Absolutely awesome? Definitely. At a personhood rally at the Oklahoma Capitol on Tuesday, Senator Judy Eason McIntyre of Tulsa, earned an audible “You go, girl!” from yours truly when she held up a sign reading, “If I wanted the government in my womb I'd fuck a senator.” Senator McIntyre didn’t bring the sign to the rally herself, but stated that when she saw it, she just had to have a photo with it.

  When Congress held that panel on birth control a few weeks ago and invited "women's health experts" who happened to be only conservative men, we were wondering what was wrong with that picture. But now, we have this hilarious video to explain things so we won't have to worry our pretty little heads anymore! As Nick Offerman (who plays Ron Swanson on Parks & Rec) puts it, "Late-middle-aged men know the most about everything.

Recently Virginia lawmakers threw their hat in the race for Worst State to be a Woman In when they introduced anti-choice legislation. People across the state responded on Monday, February 20th, when over 1,200 people gathered on the Capitol grounds in silent protest. Despite that message, this week the House of Delegates passed SB 484, legislation which will force women seeking an abortion to undergo an expensive and medically unnecessary (not to mention invasive) ultrasound.

                             Amid all the glitz and glamour of Sunday night’s 84th Annual Academy Awards, the ceremony touched on a serious issue that affects women when it honored the new Pakistani documentary Saving Face. Pakistani Director Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and co-director Daniel Junge took home an Oscar for Best Documentary (Short Subject) for the film. The 40-minute documentary explores the horrible acid attacks perpetrated on over 100 Pakistani women per year.

  Sherlock Holmes was only half right when he fondly proclaimed, “Good old Watson. You are the one fixed point in a changing age.” We are indeed in a changing age, Holmes, but “good old Watson” is changing right along with it. From Basil Rathbone’s iconic 14-film series and the Robert Downey, Jr. and Jude Law blockbusters to popular television shows House and BBC’s Sherlock, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s chronicles of the mystery-solving duo Sherlock Holmes and Dr.

I am one of those chicks that doubles over in pain the first day of my period. When I first started menstruating, the pain would land me in bed for almost two days, and when I could get up to do anything, my whole entire body would feel sore and depleted of energy. Midol and Tylenol could not completely numb the pain, but I still used to hope to Glitter that I had a pill in my bag as I neared the end of the 6-8 hour cycle. I would pop so much Tylenol that my mother would joke about putting me in rehab.

Welcome to Part Two of of my collection of looks from this season's New York Fashion Week. Fantastic street style seemed to be everywhere I turned, and I made sure to capture as much as I could. One of my favorite looks of the week (or ever) has to be this outfit on Vogue Japan's Anna Dello Russo, who never fails to bring the fashion crazy. I love it! With a bright fuschia coat and out-of-this world hat, she stood out in a sea of fashionable, yet safe, ensembles.

Fake game shows were the name of the, yes, game, on this week’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race. For the mini challenge, Ru invented a four-round test of endurance called—wait for it—Beat the Cock. I will render its brilliance in detail for you here so that you may recreate it at home, because you are definitely, definitely going to want to play. The first round was essentially Pin the Tail on the Donkey, only the tail was a paper chicken and the donkey was a giant photo of Ru’s face.

We all hopefully know men who don't think they have the right to make decisions for us (reproductive or otherwise). Some of us even know men brave enough to call themselves feminists. But these men aren't the ones in the news. Women are speaking out against the injustices of having male politicians decide what's right for their bodies; but we're not beyond calling for the help of men who also believe that we have the right to make our own decisions. That's why Chloe Angyal of Feministing started the Tumblr Men Who Trust Women. For too long, it's been women vs.

2012 marks the 70th anniversary of the "We Can Do It" poster and of the push to enlist women into the workforce due to the lack of laborers caused by World War II. The "Rosie the Riveter" look has been tried on by countless women since artist J. Howard Miller based his vision of the 1940s war woman on Michigan factory worker Geraldine Hoff. The iconic image is definitely striking, but what is more remarkable to consider are the experiences of a real-life Rosie, six million of whom entered the workforce in the 1940s.
