For those of you who don’t know, Tumblr is a fantastically fun place full of food, feminism, fandoms, and kittens! However, one thing Tumblr isespecially great for is allowing young artists to self-promote; they can post, share, and sell their work, all while having fun blogging. Other Tumblr users can enjoy what they blog and support their online friends by purchasing their products, be they books, paintings, custom stickers, or whatever else these ... Read More

“Hello? Yes, it is me, bell hooks. Yes, I am here to tell you to cut that white supremacist capitalist patriarchy shit out. Uh huh, thanks, okay buhbye.”
It may not be as good as the lady herself, but yes, that is pretty much what is going on here. This amazing new Tumblr page provides those who love a good ol’ bell hooks hoot every once in a while with pure gold; The Feminist Phone Intervention is a godsend for anyone and everyone ... Read More

Let me preface this lighthearted article about a funny website by saying we understand that not all straight white boys text like this. We get it.
What almost every girl can bond over is the experience of trying to have a regular conversation with a guy when oh no- they try to make it sexual way too fast. Since when does telling a guy you just ate some celery mean I want a picture of your penis?
Every girl knows the tricks. “Want to play 20 ... Read More

Aw, there's nothing like a good ol' bit of satirical internet mischief to get you through Hump Day.
And our favorite new blog's premise is based off the old chestnut about men taking up too much space on the train-- there's even a Tumblr devoted to it. But this new blog suggest that men take "spread their legs while sitting down" because, of course, "they're saving room for cats! Duh!"
Here are a few goodies...
Check out the SavingRoomForCats Tumblr and thank ... Read More

I hope Jenny Slate catches this post, because I have found all of Marcel the Shell's friends and family. Thanks to artist, graphic designer, and owner for Green Ink Studio, Inka Mathew's teeny tiny personal project, "Tiny PMS Match," she has bestowed us with yet another terribly adorable procrastinating tool. Mathew's project matches miniscule, everyday objects to their Pantone® color equivalences, photographs them with her iPhone, and it is so god damn ... Read More

What do NFL locker rooms and a mobile clinic doling out “Free Prostate Exams!” have in common? They’re all places where you’re unlikely to find women. And that’s unsurprising and fine, but the creator of the genius Tumblr 100PercentMen has blown my mind grapes by pointing out other places where women have yet to tread. And though I’m well-versed in Infuriating Woman’s Issues News, even I had to gasp at some of ... Read More

It's time to talk about Tal Peleg. The makeup artist has made her rounds on The Huffington Post, Lost At E Minor, and flooded the dashboards of tumblr users everywhere – for good reason. Peleg absolutely shits all over everyone else's makeup game, turning her own face into a canvas of elaborately (and probably painstakingly) painted eyelids, each telling a different story. She makes use of her eyebrows, lashes and the shape of her face to create ... Read More

I F***ING LOVE THE INTERNET. It brings together lovely, talented people and allows us to all support one another. Namely, Tayler Smith and Arabelle Sicardi, two talented dames who came together to make an art project about makeup theory and identity that will blow your mind. Do you have a Tumblr? Are you a young adult in New York? If so, you must know about these artsy fartsy smartsy folks. Both have very original and intriguing blogs concerned with fashion, ... Read More

Victoria Seimer, a Brooklyn-based graphic designer, posts her stunning work on tumblr under the name Wichoria. All of her work is phenomenal, but her weekly series entitled, “Human Error” is what first caught my eye. In this digital day and age, everyone is familiar with the layout of computer pop-ups, such as error messages and repeated reminders, which is partly what makes this series so powerful. What if error messages just popped up in real ... Read More

"Your body is not a problem to be solved."
In the spirit of the budding of Spring, and the unfortunately inevitable and unending pressure to get your body "bikini ready" for beach weather, here is a lovely selection of some kick-ass body positive illustrations from all over the internets.
Body positivity is all encompassing. It is not only about accepting and loving bodies at every shape and size (which includes very thin!), at it's ... Read More
