Ladies, Don’t let these new ladies' underwear sets, licensed by Marvel, fool you, real super powers are all in your head. Although, the idea is a totally sweet one, I find the execution of these sets completely ridiculous and uncomfortably sexist. Airbrushed cleavage “bursting” at the seams and tiny infant sized waistlines are sending the wrong message to the self-conscious, comic-book-reading,14-year-old girl in all of us. If you want to be a real she-hulk use your brainy super powers and pick up something by Bell Hooks.

I am not a good enough feminist. This may be a thought that has crossed your mind at some point in your life. But what does it mean to be a good feminist?  And what does it mean to be a feminist at all? Concrete Utopia invites us to explore the meaning of feminism through an art exhibition that will showcase the works of 23 interdisciplinary artists. Through the experiences of artists, writers, activists, and intellectuals- the investigation of feminism will be on display from May 7th until May 30th  in New York City.  Titled “i am not a good feminist.

Want to cease all productivity ever? No problem. The internet just added Cute-Roulette to its repertoire. It's exactly like chatroulette but instead of an endless stream of dicks, you have an infinite amount of cute to look forward to. Not into that video of a bunny opening a letter? No problem, here's one of a kitten giving a pup a massage. Your cute learning-curve just went up. Like way up. Sample cuteness: [video:http://www.youtube.

When I was growing up, I would make my best friends play Polly Pocket with me. I remember it like it was yesterday: a few poor boys and I crowded around Polly Pocket's Magical Mansion, making Polly flip hamburgers on her tiny grill, or perhaps sashay her around a mini lavender ballroom adorned with clear plastic swans and mauve curtains.

A class-action suit has been filed against the Wal-Mart corporation on behalf of 1.5 million former and current Wal-Mart women workers. The plaintiffs claim that Wal-Mart promotes a work culture of patriarchy where women are constantly devalued in the workplace.

The expression "powdering my nose" (which I've always been told was the polite way to excuse one's self to the bathroom) doesn't aptly describe the struggle of using a public toilet. It can be a lengthy process that can include finding a place to hang a purse, unraveling rolls of toilet paper to shield one's hiney, and kicking the flusher so you don't have to be exposed to God knows what flesh eating bacteria, etc. I have never bothered lining toilet seats. My preferred method has always been the "squat," which seems to be the tried and true NYC method.

Coachella is a place where celebrities and concert go-ers alike blend together in a sea of festival style. While it’s still a bit chilly in N.Y.C., it warms my style spirit to see spring dresses, fancy sunglasses, and wide-brimmed hats galore. These pictures are a breath of fresh air as spring officially begins and people are wearing more and more color! It’s only going to get warmer here, but I hear it was pretty warm at Coachella already. You gotta hand it to these stylish folks. Looking this put together in desert heat definitely takes some skill.

Yes. This five-minute gem of a video gets everything right.  Released in 1997, the group is made up of Lili, Tahmineh and Sepideh - three Iranian-American ladies who reside in California but sing in Farsi. Apparently, the group is the first all-women Iranian band. The single title  "Khorshid Khanoom" means Lady Sun in Farsi, and the video reflects the ladies' Earth Mother sensibility. With different colored hair pieces representing three of the four elements (air, fire and earth) the video shares aesthetic sentiments with the 1987 Cher vehicle, the Witches of Eastwick.

Jay-z's new blog is LEGIT. The aesthetically pleasing front page makes it's content easy to browse. The photographs are pristine, the articles are attention grabbing and interesting and the candid interview with Gwyneth Paltrow where she reveals her secret love of gangster rap is totally adorable. "I went to LA the summer between my junior and senior year of high school and i discovered N.W.A which became my obsession." Personally, one of the highlights of the site was the Santigold and Karen O collaboration.
