Today, after nearly two hours of discussion, the Iowa House Republicans adopted a 20-week abortion ban amendment, approving the bill 11-8. Along with cutting off access to an abortion after 20 weeks, the amendment states that life begins at fertilization, allows an exemption for the life and health of the mother, and would subject physicians who violate the law to medical board discipline. While this is a set-back to reproductive rights, it could have been worse. Not even 24 hours ago, the Iowa Republicans originally… Read more

By Laura McMahon  In Feminism  On Mar 30, 2017

“Last week was supposed to be a triumph for Republicans. After seven long years, our national nightmare of somewhat affordable health coverage would finally be over.” Samantha Bee's latest sass-fest focuses on Trump's most recent presidential failure. When the man who was elected based on his ability to make deals couldn't even sway his own political allies to vote yes on the American Health Care Act, he gave members of Congress an ultimatum: Either move forward with the vote or move on to other issues.

Burger Tales: Writing Away Indulgence

By It's Not Personal  In Sex  On Mar 30, 2017

So I should have seen the heartburn coming.I didn’t understand all the fuss about burgers until I met this Chef.

Here's How Victorian "Science" Explained Cat Ladies

By Mimi Matthews  In Living  On Mar 29, 2017

"Old maids and cats have long been proverbially associated together, and rightly or wrongly these creatures have been looked upon with a certain degree of suspicion and aversion by a large proportion of the human race." — Dundee Courier, 5 October 1880. Spinsters have long been associated with cats. This was especially true in the Victorian era when the stereotype of the old maid and her feline dependents was so pervasive that an 1880 edition of the Dundee Courier not only declared that “the old maid would not be… Read more

By Isabel S. Dieppa  In Living  On Mar 29, 2017

The representative from Iowa, Steve King, has received a lot of criticism from both the Republican and Democratic party for his now-famous tweet alluding to Dutch Donald Trump wannabe Geert Wilders. In the tweet, he shows solidarity with Wilders' views on immigration and its perceived threat to Western society. “Wilders understands that culture and demographics are our destiny. We can't restore our civilization with somebody else's babies.” King claims he was not trying to be racist and said explain his ideas were not… Read more
Maxine Waters has once again proved she will not back down in the face of opposition — even if that face comes in the form of Bill O'Reilly and his sexist and racist mouth. On an episode of Fox and Friends, O’Reilly and other co-hosts played and watched a clip of Water’s delivering a speech on the House floor criticizing Trump and his supporters. After the clip played, the Fox and Friends hosts asked O’Reilly what he thought of her speech. O’Reilly had this to say: “I — I didn't hear a word she said, I was looking at… Read more

“You may not know me, but you sure as fuck won’t forget me,” alt-cabaret provocateur Bridget Everett announces from the stage at Joe’s Pub in New York.

Everett has been scandalizing live audiences with energetic renditions of explicit songs like “What I Gotta Do?” [...to get that dick in my mouth], and “Put Your Dick Away,” for a decade.

The Outrage Against Childfree Women Is Real — And Needs To Stop

By Therese Shechter And Amy Blackstone  In Feminism  On Mar 29, 2017

When 26-year-old Rose* tells people she doesn’t want kids, she gets called “a selfish bitch, a child hater, unlovable, etc. I've also been told no man will ever love me.” A recent study by psychologist Leslie Ashburn-Nardo confirms what childfree people like Rose know all too well: that the decision not to have children inspires moral outrage in others. It’s already been established that people who choose not to reproduce are perceived as less warm, more selfish, and more pitiable than parents. This new study is the… Read more

The Fearless Girl is here to stay, at least until the next International Women's Day. The statue, which is a bronze sculpture of a girl standing in a power pose, hands on hips, chest forward in a show of strength and defiance, was erected across from the charging bull, a piece of guerilla art that became a permanent fixture in the financial district. Its placement across from this animal which symbolizes the virulent culture of Wall Street made waves — beloved by many, derided by some and even defiled by others. State… Read more

“Hers is a story we tell ourselves about America—a founding mother who still defines us.” Most American children grow up watching Disney’s Pocahontas and associate Pocahontas with the love story depicted between her and John Smith.

But who was she really and why do we put… Read more
