Mega hottie and all-around cool dude Joseph Gordon-Levitt wants to talk about feminism, and he's interested in hearing your response.  Say what?! After declaring he was a feminist on The Ellen Show and in various interviews, Gordon-Levitt did not anticipate the wave of anti-feminist comments he eventually received. Afterwards, he became interested in understanding the many different views of feminism and feminists. This inspired him to open up topic ... Read More
When the hosts of the web show "PolitiChicks" made a guest appearance on "Fox & Friends" this past Tuesday, they voiced opinions that probably would have been offensive if they hadn't been so deeply confusing. The occasion for the PolitiChicks' visit to "Fox & Friends" was the release of their new book, entitled "What Women Really Want." After listening to their interview, I have serious doubts that the PolitiChicks even know what women are.  The ... Read More
  Beyoncé gave a major shoutout to our favorite dirty word, flashing “FEMINIST” in lights behind her during last night’s Video Music Awards performance. Text filled the screen for the sampling of novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s TEDx Talk on embracing feminism, leaving no ambiguity that one of America’s biggest pop stars is indeed a gender right’s icon. While much can be said about whether Beyoncé ... Read More
You may or may not be familiar with the #WeNeedDiverseBooks campaign. If you aren’t, it was a thing on Twitter recently where people tweeted pictures of themselves or their loved ones holding signs that said why we need diverse books. However, it’s sort of lost momentum, and I don’t know about you, but I haven’t noticed a change in the literary landscape as far as representation is concerned. In fact, other than Orange is the New Black, I ... Read More
Almost every twenty year old on television is white, ESPECIALLY in comedies (give or take the occasional token brown friend). Organic stories about the lives of people of color aren’t typically seen as small screen material, because COME ON, people experiencing racism in the work place? What kind of social justice bull is this?! I’m tryin’ to relax. These kinds of racist attitudes are exactly why I am stoked for Twenties, an upcoming project that is ... Read More
Looks like sexual predators in the public eye have been getting their comeuppance lately. This time the culprit was Skyler Page, creator of the animated series Clarence on Cartoon Network. We don't often hear of big studios (television is a bit of a boy's club it seems) firing employees for committing sexual assault, but the Network surprised us by firing him after another employee, Emily Partridge, revealed that he had sexually assaulted her. Partridge is a ... Read More
Canadian author Margaret Atwood’s three part “speculative fiction” series, MaddAddam, will be turned into an HBO series by director Darren Aronofsky. The series consists of three novels: Oryx and Crake, The Year of the Flood, and MaddAddam. The trio follows various characters in a world where a flood has wiped out most of mankind and those remaining are left to survive in society run by corporate operatives rather than any state-sanctioned ...

Earlier this year, Amber Ruffin was hired to write for Seth Meyers’ Late Night. This was very significant because she is the first woman of color to write for a network late night show, ever. That’s right, ever. The state of the TV writing industry is not very diverse, you see, if hiring a black woman writer makes headlines. Luckily, the Writers Guild of America, East (WGAE) proposed legislation that would make New York the first state to incentivize the ... Read More
Are you obsessively checking Netflix to see if "Orange is the New Black" has secretly released episodes from the new season early like we do? Well, even if you don't do that, we know you can't wait for it to start. Check out an interview we did with OITNB star, Danielle Brooks, to get you pumped for season 2, which premiers on Friday, June 6, 2014!
