With her new album, 25, coming out on Nov. 20 and people everywhere singing "Hello from the outsideeeee" way too loudly from their showers and cars, Adele is finally emerging back into the spotlight where she belongs. In her first big interview about her new album Adele talked to Rolling Stone's Brian Hiatt and declared that she is indeed a feminist.
"I'm a feminist, I believe that everyone should be treated the same, including race and sexuality," Adele told Rolling Stone.
"I'm a feminist," she says, sipping wine. Read More
A long line of antsy tweens waited outside Webster Hall in New York City, jittering with anticipation on Monday afternoon.

They are traveling to different cities around the nation and putting on a live show for their faithful viewers. Read More

When Kevin T. Porter and Demi Adejuyigbe began a little podcast about Gilmore Girls last fall—after the former half-jokingly tweeted the idea—they weren’t expecting a big audience to latch on. “When you first start anything that’s completely independent, you assume you’re operating in a vacuum and that 200 people max are going to listen,” Porter said.

That’s great you’re a humanist, Sarah Jessica Parker – it’s good you’re pro-equality for everyone, but I think you’re missing the point.
To better elaborate, a humanist by definition is “a progressive philosophy of life that, without theism and other supernatural beliefs, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity.” This is just a fancy way of saying humanism values everybody collectively using a rational way of thinking for the benefit of our society.

They don’t say booty unless they’re talking about gold, and they don’t look at chests unless they’re filled with treasure. Who are they? The pirates of Key and Peele’s latest sketch, “Pirate Chantey,” and we love what they stand for! Take a look:

Babeland is a feminist sex toy retailer started over 20 years ago in Seattle, WA, by two queer best friends, me (Rachel) and Claire. We’ve been allies with BUST for all these years, and because it’s Pride, which is a pretty sexy month, they invited us to do a blog post. Thanks BUST!
Babeland and Pride go way back. I remember in June of 1993, Claire and I taught ourselves to screenprint so we could give our friends barely dry “Where is Babeland?” shirts to wear at the parade. We didn’t have a store yet, but we had a plan. Women wanted vibrators and dildos. Read More

Dating back to the 18th century, tea towels were made from plain, soft linen and were used to dry fine bone china tea sets, hence their name. But by the 19th century, they were as much decorative as utilitarian. Crafty ladies used patterns from women’s magazines to beautify their towels with embroidery or other fancywork, then set them out during card parties or afternoon teas.
Flash forward to the mid-20th century, when tea towels were commercially printed with all kinds of designs for use in the kitchen or to be stitched into pillow covers or framed to hang on the wall. Read More
