With all the supposed "gray areas" regarding what constitutes consent, blogger RockstarDinosaurPiratePrincess has cleared up the topic using tea as an example. She writes, “If you’re still struggling, just imagine instead of initiating sex, you’re making them a cup of tea.  You say ‘hey, would you like a cup of tea?’ and they go ‘omg fuck yes, I would fucking LOVE a cup of tea! Thank you!*’ then you know they want a cup of tea. If they say ‘No thank you’ then don’t make them tea. At all. Read More
One random Wednesday night, on a campus well-known for its progressive lean, a friend wonders aloud to me if that cute boy in her class with the nail polish is gay or not. He doesn’t have to be, she says. I shrug and ask her if she’d go out with him if he were interested. “ Of course,” she replies. “He’s funny. And smart. And that color looks good on him." The times, they are a’changin’—for men and women. Read More

  Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan was just hospitalized this week in Dallas, Texas. Duncan (who is in serious condition as of today) is the first official case of Ebola diagnosed in the U.S. and if he lives through this, he may in in deep trouble with the Liberia Airport Authority for lying about his contact with the virus, before flying out of the West African airport. It is presumed that Duncan tried to help a victim of Ebola without knowing they were sick. Health officials are now keeping track of anyone that Duncan may have come in contact with to control the situation. Read More
I have been brainstorming for years the best way to react to catcallers, and I think Caroline Tompkins has found it. Her creative and powerful photo project titled “Hey Baby” turns the lens on her verbal assaulters. The 22-year-old art student claimed walking around her own neighborhood was unbearable and she would constantly be harassed. In taking photos of the jerks that think they are in the right, she is able to turn around and confront the situation, and say, "if you take comfort away from me, I can take comfort away from you.

BuzzFeed has developed into a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine. I could admittedly spend hours sifting through its array of YouTube channels, laughing over the things babies do that’d be creepy if I did them, rejoicing over the fact that there are 11 goats that are JUST LIKE ME, and marveling at the remarkable evolution of the burrito.

For a lot of us, we are just beginning our journey with feminism. I personally didn’t learn the fancy terminology that comes with the movement until my first semester of college. This was also around the time that I started getting involved in feminist activism. When you start realizing that the world isn’t as perfect and safe as you once thought it was, you start to see everything (and everyone) as potentially “problematic. Read More
Although we’re fresh off the new Beyoncé-Nicki collaboration that has quite literally rocked the internet, we may have another duo of fire starters partnering up soon.   A few days ago, Miley Cyrus turned her Instagram into a one day, mini-shrine to one of music’s most prevalent and influential feminists: the one, the only Kathleen Hanna. She threw out a couple pro-Hanna comments, like “coolest ever” and “f*** yeah… #girlsrule”. Read More
Maya Peterson of Lawrenceville School was forced to step down as the first female black and Latina student president after some pictures of her mocking ‘typical white classmates’ emerged online. Lawrenceville is the most expensive prep school in the United States. It is located in New Jersey and one year's tuition costs about $35,000. It has some pretty successful alumni, too, including CEOs Michael Eisner and Lewis Bernard, many senators and the founder of Forbes. Read More
