Who IS that girl?
We know all about how kids’ toys are divided by gender in really icky ways. Why can’t a boy use an Easy Bake Oven? Why aren’t girls playing with those trucks in the commercials? And the issue goes far beyond surface advertising – “boy products” often encourage building, activity, and adventure, while “girl products” usually emphasize appearance and foster skills like nurturing and cooking. These are all great ... Read More

The women can wear whatever they like, as motivations range from gifts for fiancées and spouses to simply pride in the beauty of their bodies. Even a 62-year-old has ... Read More

Fashion designer Nzinga Knight doesn't use low-cut necklines in her designs, or gowns with thigh-high slits exposing bare legs. There’s no cleavage, back, or belly showing on the models who wear her designs. Why? Knight's a devout Muslim. Instead of flaunting the wearer's assets, her work's sex appeal is tied to the mystery of the covered body. "The look of my work is sensual, mysterious, innovative," she told Yahoo! News. She explained that her target is ... Read More

YES! Consent is Sexy is a new underwear line with flashy, brightly colored panties emblazoned with words like "Yes!", "No!", "Maybe", and "Ask First." With REAL women (not airbrushed automatons) modeling these garments, and the proceeds going toward raising awareness, there's even more incentive to pick up these graphic skivvies.
The money from sales of this line go to a group called FORCE: Upsetting the Culture of Rape, a project that challenges rape ... Read More

I adore Christmas music. It’s a good thing I do, since I have ears and I’ve been known to turn on the radio/watch television/enter retail stores in the months of November and December. I love holiday songs of almost every stripe: classic, indie, dog bark-y, the list goes on. There’s just one kind I cannot hang with: “sexy.”
Sexy—and I mean “sexy” in quotes, all shiny and red like a maraschino cherry—has an ... Read More
