Mo’ne Davis remains a better person than any of us as she steps up to defend the college baseball player who was removed from his team after calling her a slut via Twitter.
Davis, 13-years-old, wrote to Bloomsburg University asking the school to reconsider its decision to kick Joey Casselberry from the team after his online comments.
Dear Dr. Soltz,
I am writing about the Tweet sent out by your baseball player, Joey Casselberry, and his dismissal from the ... Read More

Remember getting your first tattoo? You were probably so excited, nervous, and super fearful that turning eighty would bring that beautiful, unique piece of body art to a brand new—and most likely undesirable—location.
We've all heard it: "Think about how silly you're going to look when you're old." It's the timeless complaint people put up against tattoos. These older women, however, obviously didn't let that stop them when it came to getting ... Read More

Roughly 40 years ago, the U.S. education system took a major step towards equality: We're talking Title IX, the amendment specifying that any educational program receiving funds from the federal government cannot discriminate against, deny, or judge a U.S. citizen on the basis of their sex. Because of this, women have been allowed more representation in sports, the sciences, and technical schools. However, gender barriers still exist today and so does the ... Read More

A Belgian advertisement for the upcoming 2015 E3 Harelbeke cycling competition released an image of a male biker reaching up to grab a woman’s exposed behind. The tagline: “Who squeezes them in Harelbeke?”
Not only is this ad disgusting, but it says zero about the actual sport and alienates any female cyclists who might want to participate as equals. Sigh.
The design was inspired by previous winner Solvak Peter Sagan, who pinched a woman’s ... Read More

The love and dating gurus over at Meetville (the dating app) created this super educational infographic and we just had to share it with you. Where else can you get this many informative facts about "tities"?
In case you couldn't tell from the title of the post "Men's Love Starts Behind the Bra," this horrible, typo-ridden, boob-filled fact sheet reduces women to their breasts in every way— how much they weigh, how much they cost, how "a small ... Read More

On Sunday evening, every single bar I passed on New York’s Second Avenue was packed with both women and men, screaming at the top of their lungs and cheering for the USA in their World Cup match against Portugal.
According to CNN, similar scenes were scattered across Iran this past Saturday. Restaurants were packed with fans - both women and men - who were excitedly cheering on their country’s team in the nail-biting match against ... Read More

You might've already seen the great boylesque parody of Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" by Mod Carousel, but this one gets an A+++ for creativity and FEMINISM. These ladies totally rewrote the song to show the overtones of sexism, male dominance, and general inappropriateness of the lyrics. The original video and lyrics basically indicates that women are pretending to be "good girls" by playing hard to get with dudes. ("You know you want it." That definitely ... Read More

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
