    American Girl dolls have been popular amongst little girls in the U.S for a while now. I fondly remember visits to the American Girl Place in New York City when I was a kid. The company has a line of diverse historical dolls from different eras of American history, including Native American Kaya, Civil War-era Addy and Mexican-American Josefina. Now, the company has just introduced their first American Boy doll - a white boy named Logan Everett. "We do an enormous amount of research with girls and...
During a Texas Senate Health and Human Services Committee hearing, a state Senator broke the glass of a table while banging his gavel in order to stop a NARAL intern from giving her testimony against one of the state's many controversial abortion bills. NARAL’s legislative intern, Maggie Hennessy, spoke about the dangers a bill like Senate Bill 415 could have on women’s health. The bill targets dilation and evacuation or D&E abortions, which are the safest and most common form of second-trimester abortions. The language in...

To The Men That Tell Women to Smile, Nobody. Fucking. Likes. You. You telling me to smile is basically saying, “Excuse me ma’am, but you have some SERIOUS resting bitch face going on.” Do you think that makes us happy? Cause if you do, please tell me your stretching routine. You must be pretty flexible to have your head so far up your ass. Saying “smile” only makes us ladies want to frown more. We might be having a bad day, and now we know that it shows....
Kesha’s battle with her alleged abuser rages on as her legal team releases emails from Dr. Luke in which he allegedly body shames the pop star. Kesha has struggled for more than a year in court to break ties with the man who she says sexually assaulted and drugged her, yet her petitions have been continuously denied in court. Kesha has been open about her struggle with eating disorders in the past and has said that Dr. Luke has enabled them. The body shaming comments...
This sends a horrifying message: a woman seeking help escaping an abusive relationship was instead arrested by the ICE. According to the Washington Post, the woman had been driven to the El Paso courthouse by a victim’s advocate from a local shelter for a hearing to obtain a protective order against her abusive boyfriend. Instead, she was arrested by six Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) officials. The El Paso Times writes that the woman is trans and an undocumented immigrant. El Paso County Attorney Jo Anne Bernal told...
  Guess what? You now will never be raped or sexually assaulted... but only if you wear this rape prevention underwear! AR (Anti-Rape) Wear, described as “a clothing line offering wearable protection for when things go wrong,” had an Indiegogo campaign back in 2014. Though they exceeded their funding goal, it doesn’t seem as if the product has ever manifested past prototypes. And still, a video of the prototype demonstrations is being shared on Facebook to this day, despite the product being introduced 3 years ago.   “The waist,...
A Politico/ Morning Consult poll confirms what we were all assuming: America is already ready to turf out Donald Trump in the next election. The good news? “Generic Unnamed Democrat Candidate” is likely to beat Trump in 2020, if things continue down their current trajectory. The bad news? Elizabeth Warren is not. 43 percent of those polled said they would vote for the as-of-yet undetermined Democrat at the next election, while only 35 percent say they would vote to reelect Donald Trump. But when the question was changed...
After bragging and talking up their latest diversity issue, Vogue has once again proved they have no idea what diversity really is. In a spread titled “Spirited Away” (RED FLAG) supermodel Karlie Kloss was made up in yellowface, draped in stereotypical geisha garb, and photographed prancing alongside a sumo wrestler amidst scenery that is so stereotypically Japanese it hurts. The piece, shot by Mikael Jansson, was reportedly supposed to be “an homage to a 1966 Vogue shoot by Richard Avedon of German model Veruschka,” according to People magazine....

"As the supply alluded to is to be levied upon all old maids, beyond a certain age, and intitled to certain yearly or other income; I make no doubt but both Houses of Parliament will speedily manifest their hearty concurrence thereto."  — The London Magazine, 1777. The 1777 edition of the London Magazine includes an interesting letter to the editor in which a gentleman — who signs himself as "A Friend to the Community" — has appended a proposed bill to levy a tax of "6d....
