Some say there are no stupid questions, only stupid answers. In a brazen display of Internet chutzpah, the talk-show circuit ‘doctor’ posted this unbelievably stupid question hoping, probably, for some unbelievably stupid answers.  Dear Dr. Phil: is it OK to ask the Internet if rape is OK? The tweet was almost immediately deleted, probably because some nice intern at the Dr. Phil offices politely raised her hand and told whoever is in charge of ... Read More
There comes a time in moments of crisis when we need to just sit back and listen. Sometimes this request comes from a partner, a mother or a sister, but right now it’s coming from women worldwide. Al Jazeera reported recently that women from South Africa to Japan and the United States are demanding a diverse approach to feminism, or a fight for feminism that represents women of all cultural backgrounds. The hashtag #SolidarityIsForWhiteWomen was developed by ... Read More
When was the last time you heard some jack-off say that women don’t make music, or that chick-fronted bands pale in comparison to bands of Big, Strong Men? Well, tell those jerks to whine no more, because I have a playlist for you that will prove them all wrong. Extremely funny Twitter lady Amber Earnest (@rare_basement, and if you don’t follow her yet I suggest you do) made a 1,000+ song Spotify playlist composed entirely of female-fronted bands, ...

Remember when you were younger and you would start a sentence with "No offense, but..." whenever you were about to criticize someone? Yeah, it seems like some people never grow up. News flash: if you have to start out defending what you are going to say, you probably shouldn't be saying it! One Twitter account, Yes, You're Sexist, has started calling out people for their sexist comments that are defended by the preface: "I'm not sexist, but..." Turns out, the ... Read More
Recently, there’s been an all-out Twitter war between two of our favorite feminist women: Jezebel writer and comedian Lindy West, and BUST columnist and comedian Roseanne Barr.   The debate focuses on the subject of rape jokes—when it’s appropriate to tell them, and what the appropriate response to them should be.   The flames started after Lindy posted a story on Jezebel, called, “If Comedy Has No Lady Problem, Why Am I Getting ...

(Of all time!) When the web gives us wonders like Feminist Ryan Gosling, Feminist Harry Potter, and now the ultra-viral Feminist Taylor Swift account, it seems like the whole cyberverse explodes—and for good reason. Feminist Taylor Swift is probably my favorite parody to come out this year, and it’s all thanks to Brown University student Clara Beyer, whose quest for lyrical justice began like most movements: out of frustration. As both a fan and ... Read More
Ladies and gentlemen, brace yourselves for the most important news of the day. Hillary Clinton is officially on Twitter! Secretary of State Clinton tweeted this little witticism 3 hours ago, using the popular Text From Hillary Tumblr folks, you know, to reach the tweeting kids out there.  Adam and Stace of course got a kick out of this shout out, and replied promptly.   Classic. My favorite reply so far though, is from former Mr. ... Read More
We found a handful of the best tweets about Michael Douglas' comments on oral sex that were revealed in an interview yesterday. While it took a lot not to vomit at all the disgusting jokes about Catherine Zeta-Jones disease-ridden vagina, there were some gems hidden amongst the rubble. From Lena Dunham to Julie Klausner to Betty F*ckin' White (not actually Betty White), a whole lotta ladies were pretty on point ... Read More
In what parallel universe does a woman publicly apologize to a man who threatens to beat her up and make her “suck skin off" his dick? Our universe, apparently. And as an added bonus, this woman is Katy Perry, idol to millions of teenage girls. After Perry tweeted “Just heard a new song on the radio called "I hate being sober" I now have serious doubt for the world,” the song's artist, Chief Keef (real name Keith Cozart) decided to respond. The rapper ... Read More
As you might have already heard, Angelina Jolie underwent a double mastectomy to decrease her risk of breast cancer from 87% to under 5%. People have praised her courage for revealing such a personal, deeply serious part of her life in an op-ed piece for the New York Times. Other people, however, have mourned the loss of the only important aspect of Angelina Jolie as an actress, director, mother, wife, and public figure: OMG HER BOOBS R GONE 4EVR. Yes, there are ...
