Last week, New York Magazine published a near-comprehensive list, “The Most Feminist Moments in Sci-Fi History.” As author Devon Maloney mentions, science fiction has always been a relatively safe space to explore outlandish ideas like alternative gender roles or anti-racism. So cheers to that!  We’ve pulled some of our favorites, but check out the original article for enough femspiration to get you through the rest of the work week. Read More
  There’s nothing I love more than a solid night in and a good movie. As much as I enjoy a classic, though, a lot of them come from a time when “Bechdelling it” wasn’t a thing. Movies were (and in many unfortunate cases, still are) made to make money, not to make sure women get represented fairly in the entertainment industry. Or in any industry. Or in life. But I digress.

Is that a list in your pants, or are you just happy to see me? Irony has rooted itself in our culture, and now it's taken hold of our sex lives. Dating and sex can be awkward for everyone, but a little determination goes a long way. It's best to be pragmatic about these things.

I've had my share of intimate rendezvous with a not-to-be-named musician or two, but I didn't realize the intricacies of dating a rock star until I was actually in a committed relationship with one. The rock star relationship lifestyle ain't no walk in the park. Just ask the ladies of Rock of Love. Or don't... 1. They're not as cool as they seem.In fact, if you stripped away all their stage-cred and hype, they'd just be talented guitar nerds. And if you're actually in love with one, you adore them because they're not nearly as cool as people think they are. 2. Read More
I'm a pretty big list maker. Post-its have become a part of my room decor and scribbled on notes are forever falling out of my backpack pockets. I'm also always on the lookout for some new inspiration, so an inspiring inventory is pretty much the cream of the crop in my book. These four are particularly special--each collection of words provides inspirational thoughts and ideas that are applicable to living a creative, inquisitive, and fulfilling life in general. You don't have to be an artist, musician, or writer to appreciate these mini-manifestos. Read More
I really like lists. I also really like The Frisky. So when I saw this article pop up in my newsletter a couple days ago, I couldn’t help but click. Kinda just thought I’d send it along to my boyfriend, make him chuckle a bit, maybe I’d get a few laughs out of it myself. Hmph.Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you…my inner monologue:“Hm…Oh…Ha ha…That’s clever…Oh, that’s silly……Uh…Hm.Um, no.…Nope.…Wow, nope, not even close.”And so on and so forth. Read More
