Trigger Warning: This post discusses sexual violence, victim-blaming. Jennifer Stevens, a 10-year armed forces and battalion veteran, was absolutely outraged by this poster in the women’s restroom of the Wright-Patterson Ohio Air Force base. The poster, titled "Avoid Being a Victim," is a guideline for women to avoid/prevent sexual assault. Understandably, it SCREAMS victim-blaming.  The poster instructs soldiers to avoid sexual assault by paying attention to their surroundings, socializing with people who share their values and being prepared to get home. No correlating poster instructs soldiers to prevent sexual...
It's been many moons in the making, but we're excited to announce the opening of LADIES REPRESENT!, an all-female, all-awesome art show opening next week at Superchief Gallery in New York's Lower East Side.

The boys would smile knowingly, admitting to their pleasure bombastically, sometimes even high-fiving. The girls would cast their eyes away, shaking their heads violently....
There's nothing like plot twist hotness. You know what we mean: like seeing Pornstache sans stache or flipping through the "he'll never have a girlfriend" meme, there's a sick thrill from watching people morph from blah to babe. And while I'm personally attracted to older men (like I'm gearing to be some ex-grunge musician's third wife some day) we've collected shots of celebs in their prime looking surprisingly smoking.   Disclaimer: we fully acknowledge that what we have ahead is some blatant male sexual objectification, which kinda...
Let’s take a poll: how many people have heard or seen comments along the lines of “so-and-so is fat and can’t a) find nice clothes b) get a boyfriend c) anything else? Lose weight!” Besides the ignorance, shaming, and stupidity of said statement, it might not be so easy for plus size women to exercise, and it might not be the reason you think. Everyone with Internet access has heard about the Abercrombie CEO who was quoted saying that they don’t carry larger sizes because fat...
