The online world has been a buzz with photographer, Petra Collins, and her menstrual blood-themed t-shirt. Collins designed the shirt, which is illustrated with a menstruating hairy vagina (vulva), especially for American Apparel. Commentary on the product has ranged from disgust to intrigue to even some who see it as pure feminist genius. This shirt is cool because it leaves little to the imagination. I think it is a beautiful feminist statement but would ... Read More
Malala Yousafzai, the girl shot by the Taliban last year, has been making headlines with her astute opinions on society.  Despite Taliban threats to make attempts on her life again, Malala is still speaking out publicly about education, women, and the cultural differences between the Eastern and Western worlds.  Since her attack last year, she has been relocated to Britain and enrolled in school.   Malala told BBC, "I want to tell the ...

The Media Coop recently posted an article titled "Dating Tips for the Feminist Man" that offers some amazing tips for practicing what you preach. There is a lot of repetition, but you can never discuss emotional check-ins too much! An interesting point made in the article is that, while being a sensitive guy is awesome, there is more to being a feminist than simply not being a jerk-off.  Tip number four illustrates just that:  "If you don't know how you ...

Frats: Keg stands, Tikki torches, and brothers for life. Two weeks ago, an email surfaced from Georgia Techs Phi Kappa Tau fraternity, describing how to “Lure Rapebait”. The email goes into intense detail about how to hook up with women at parties.  The email explicitly tells the other fraternity brothers exactly what any girl wants: "A GOOD DICK GRIND". “Here is how to dance: Grab them on the hips with your 2 hands and then let them ...

  Sinead O’ Connor, the mother of controversy who once tore up a picture of John Paul II, had a few things to say to Miley Cyrus this week. By "a few things," I mean Sinead dropped massive wisdom bombs on the twerking pop star.    Miley cites Sinead O'Connor as her influence for the “Wrecking Ball” video in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, and Sinead is not happy. O'Connor writes, “I am ... Read More

  Hillary Clinton has always been a favorite politician of mine. Without going into a full on political debate here, I think she has an amazing work ethic and solid ideas for the country. In a recent New York Magazine article entitled “Hillary in Midair,” she comes off as refreshingly normal.   “We get to be at home together a lot more now than we used to in the last few years,” says Clinton of her family. “We ...

  It feels right…it feels right…Oh!   This morning I awoke to see that NPR had posted the full stream of Haim’s new album, “Days Are Gone.” The girl group has deservedly been getting a lot of press lately. "Days Are Gone" sounds like a glorious blend of my favorite girl groups. The album includes singles that have been securing them spots at Glastonbury, but other tracks also offer something different. "Days are Gone" has ... Read More
Happy Bisexual Pride Day! Growing up in San Francisco, I used to love walking around the Castro on Gay Pride Day and seeing glittering smiles on the faces of people who felt understood. It's a shame that Bisexual Pride Day is not met with the same colorful rumpus! Bisexuality has had a hard time gaining visibility (visibility here referring to the increased or mainstream media exposure for a given group, i.e. LGBT appearances in TV and film) as a legitimate ...
