These days it's pretty simple. Pee on this little stick and in a few brief moments you'll know if you've been knocked up. But before the advent of EPTs (or early-pregnancy tests), what did we ladies do to make sure we weren't just having delayed periods or something? Some weird shit, I tell you. In Ancient Egypt, women would piss on planted wheat and barley seeds, and when neither sprouted that meant you weren't pregnant. BUT if the wheat seeds sprouted, that allegedly meant you were...
I try and think back on when the word “fat” and its negative social stigma first registered. Was it in fifth grade when all of the kids started to break up into cliques? Was it when a family member used it to describe a passerby, friend, or loved one? I look back and begin to realize that the word “fat” never really had an exact beginning for me or probably for anyone else. Ingrained into our lives, words like “fat” or “ugly” or “stupid” become...
Venus the cat has a condition: total badassery. As you can see, she's got two different eye colors (AKA heterochromia) and a giant, perfectly straight splash of black that runs down half of her face.

Or when you read a book and think the words could have been ripped from your journal? Or when you see a bangin’ piece of art and think, “I wish I could express my frustration towards patriarchal systems like that!"  Okay, maybe you haven’t thought that last one yet, but you will after you see artwork by Sarah Maple. Maple works...
You Me & Us have a knack for making classic pop songs with a refreshingly rough edge. The Palm Springs, CA trio put a lo-fi spin on their signature noise-pop stylings to create their latest EP Stay Inside. Listening to the sweetly-sung, Jenny Lewis-esque vocals, distorted guitars, and reverb-filled melodies reminds me of a summer day spent lounging around because it's too hot outside and you'd rather just fuck around, listening to records. You'll find yourself "ooh"-ing along on "Bad Luck/Terrible Timing," where lead vocalist...
