  There I was, sitting outside on my lunch break, drinking a violently green-colored juice BECAUSE I AM HEALTHY and eating a Toblerone BECAUSE I AM SOMETIMES HEALTHY watching a young mother chase her ginger-haired kid around a cluster of potted plants. I could hear her voice rising as both her temper and the child began to get away from her, and I briefly wondered if I should help her snatch the boy before some roving kidnapper did. Then I remembered I am ... Read More
21 states have signed bills that deem it illegal to handcuff women while in labor and immediately after; however, correctional officers have taken on their own measures to “protect” citizens from these offenders. Despite what doctors have called life-threatening to both mother and child, women are still routinely shackled during and immediately after labor. A New York Times article written by Audrey Quinn depicts this as regular part of the birthing ... Read More

The Sims is one of my absolute favorite games, and with the approaching release of The Sims 4 (September 2nd for PC), I’ve been playing and talking about it almost obsessively. In my opinion, The Sims is a perfect world. I play Sims when I’m stressed out in real life and need to decompress and be in total control. I think my two favorite things about the game are the ability to experiment and the lack of judgement that exists within the game, as ...

Australian supermodel and budding actress Andrej Pejic – now known as Andreja - has come out as a trans woman, sharing her transition with the world through her Facebook page and an interview with People magazine. Pejic told People, “One of my earliest memories is spinning around in my mom's skirt trying to look like a ballerina,” but that she truly came to terms with her gender at age 13.  It was then that she discovered the terminology for ...

In response to the blog Women Against Feminism, a new Tumblr has arisen, and it is Confused Cats Against Feminism. The blog is filled with photos of deeply misguided felines who have been led astray by the patriarchy (paw-triarchy? Sorry.) It’s comedic gold and probably the best response we’ve seen to Women Against Feminism yet. Below are five of the best submissions. Check 'em ... Read More
Hayley G Hoover, an awesome feminist on YouTube has made a video about Underage sex and consent that I think is very important and worth watching especially considering the latest Youtube news.  To summarize, quite a few men have grown “YouTube famous” and have used their Internet fame to manipulate and abuse underage woman. Their behavior ranges from emotional manipulation to adultery to physical abuse. One of these despicable YouTubers, ... Read More
Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was caught on camera, dragging the unconscious body of his girlfriend Janay Palmer out of an Atlantic City casino elevator. In the video, Palmer is limp, and though Rice tries repeatedly to prop her body up, she continues to fall to the ground.  Now he has been suspended for two games. I’m sorry, what? Two games? That is an insultingly brief suspension!  The NFL maintains that the punishment is, in fact, ... Read More
If there’s one thing I love to hate, it's right-wingers trying to make women sound delusional. Apparently, the conservative “feminist” group Independent Women’s Forum seems to think that democratic and liberal women often play the “victim” in regards to challenging gender equity. The non-profit believes that non-conservative feminism is synonymous with big government, and that seeking gender parity across the board is ... Read More
Being a millennial, I was raised on girl power. From Spice Girls to Destiny’s child, there was a veritable smorgasbord of groups of five or less women who’d sing, dance and preach girl power -- all in some sort of pleather or cow-print ensemble.  However, as I grew out of my childhood years, girl groups started going extinct, I honoestly could not name you a single girl group between 2008 and 2012, which makes me more depressed than when SClub7 ...
