In a not-so-shocking article, the New York Post once again showed their blatant sexism. An article titled “Madonna needs to start acting like a mom” used sexist logic to make the argument that — because Madonna is politically active and doesn’t look and act like a stereotypical soccer mom — she is an unfit mother. While the fact that this is coming from the New York Post pretty much disqualifies all credibility, let’s just go through their sexist points and prove them wrong — for funsies. The...
Pro-life protesters gathered around the Margaret Sanger Planned Parenthood Clinic in Lower Manhattan on Saturday, only to be met by pro-choice advocates, whose dramatically larger numbers adequately overpowered the anti-abortion group. Did Mitch McConnell not tell them how persistent we are? The Planned Parenthood protestors may have been inspired by the post-election action taken by their opponents, including the Women’s Marches in Washington D.C, Los Angeles, New York and others, which were reported to have 3-5 million people in attendance (humble brag). A pro-life hashtag #ProtestPP was...

  The Girl Scouts just celebrated 100 years and their report shows that Girl Scouting has made a difference in the lives of the girls themselves and the world around them. Growing up, if we are lucky, we are provided with a few solid role models; maybe a hardworking mother, maybe an excellent school teacher, but throughout the year’s women have not had specific places where they were encouraged to thrive. Girl Scouts provided exactly that, forming a community of women who are empowered enough to enact...

Rosie O’Donnell set Twitter on fire last night when she changed her Twitter profile picture to this photoshopped masterpiece: O’Donnell (actress, comedian, Trump’s arch-nemesis) wasn’t the mastermind behind this O’Donnell-Bannon mashup photo; she gave credit and thanks to the original creator, Johnny Smith, on Twitter. The photo has gone viral, leaving many speculating a surprise guest appearance on the next episode of Saturday Night Live. This couldn’t come at a better time: on the heels of Melissa McCarthy’s impression of Press Secretary Sean Spicer, and with...
  The College Republicans of Central Michigan University are “sorry” about the anti-Semitic Valentine’s Day card featuring Hitler the group sent out by “mistake.” The image of the card, which made its rounds on the internet, is below. According to The Washington Post, the College Republicans were having a Valentine’s Day party where the members made Valentine’s cards for each other. “Unfortunately, a very inappropriate card was placed into a bag without other members’ knowledge,” the group stated. This bag was then given to a student not affiliated with...
Saudi Arabia, ranked 134 out of 145 countries in the world for gender equality, just celebrated its first ever Women’s Day.

  At this point, almost nothing the White House does or says should shock us anymore. Yet each day, something new makes it into our news feeds and timelines that somehow seems to fill us, simultaneously, with surprise, confusion, and rage. Today’s daily dose of what-the-hell-is-going-on is a joint effort between our president’s twitter feed and whatever it is that comes out of Kellyanne Conway’s mouth. This morning on Fox & Friends, Conway endorsed Ivanka Trump’s clothing line; this comes after reports that certain retailers have announced...
Today, powerhouse R&B singer Aretha Franklin announced her plans to retire after the release of her next album. The Queen of Soul said that she isn't retiring entirely, thoug — she'll still be on (a short) tour promoting the new album, but with select dates. After 56 years of soulful songwriting and singing, Franklin plans to take this well-deserved break to spend time with her grandchildren before they head off to college.  Franklin is best known for those soulful songs you and your mom used to...
  Trump's best friend and Russian President Vladamir Putin has now approved the "slapping law"-- a bill to decriminalize family violence that does not cause extreme physical harm to the victim. The law, which passed through Russia's lower house of parliament 368 votes to 2 last month, officially downgrades an abuser's first charge of domestic violence from a criminal to an administrative offense, carrying (at most) a $507 fine, a 15-day arrest, or 120 community services hours. What's more, the first offense rolls over each year- so long as...
