 Writer Dorothy Parker once vowed there were three things she’d never attain: "envy, content, and sufficient champagne." Girl, I feel that universal struggle. But if you show up to Speed Rack NYC this Monday, you’ll at least attain a few darn good cocktails and four hours of non-stop boozy entertainment.   Now in the midst of its fifth national tour, Speed Rack is the one n’ only speed bartending competition created by and for badass female bartenders.

Lizzo's newest music video is so moving. The Minneapolis based rapper's next album, Big GRRRL Small World is all set to come out Dec 11, which is basically like tomorrow. Regardless, I'm sitting here toe-tapping, thumb twiddling, and trying really hard to play it cool before the bomb drops.  Everything this woman does is heartfelt and real, which neatly falls under my definition of femme badassery. I'd definitely say that the lady is warrior princess material, and in the video for My Skin, she glows. She released the...

Which is why you will most definitely spot me at the Brooklyn Chili Takedown this Sunday.  So what’s a takedown you ask? Imagine Top Chef, but more like a party than a cutthroat competition – all...
Sexist dress codes are nothing new. Recently, there was Carey Buress of Beaufort High School in South Carolina, who was sent home for wearing this shockingly whorish outfit. There was the group of students in Charleston, South Carolina (what is it with South Carolina?) who wore scarlet A’s to protest fucked up dress codes when, according to The Post and Courier,  a girl was told by her guidance counselor that “If you’re a larger girl, wear a longer skirt so your butt doesn’t show.” It’s...
In this morning’s addition to bigotry against LGBT parenting, two lesbian foster parents in Utah have had their one-year-old taken from them, thanks to the clutches of Mormonism. The legally married couple, Beckie Pierce and April Hoagland, had been caring for the child for three months as the state worked towards severing the biological mother’s parental rights. The mother had asked Hoagland and Pierce to take charge, and the couple is licensed to serve as foster parents. Any logical (read: sane) person would look at this...
