My rage can't even take a break for Easter. Not even this most fortuitous Easter, the Sunday of which the mystical 20th day of the 4th month falls upon. This viral video rabbit looks like she's straight chilling jacuzzi-style, but could actually be in shock.It's kinda like how doctors tell you Q-tips are actually bad for your ears, and you really don't need any Summer's Eve--some things, like ears, vaginas, and certain pets, clean themselves. Rabbits are ... Read More
Sex permeates the lives of teenagers in one way or another; whether it’s vaguely through the media, gossip at school or directly from adults and educators. A lot of the time teens have more misconceptions and questions than answers. Luckily, a group of informed students in Nassau County took strides to raise awareness and open dialogue about Sex Ed for their peers and horny teens everywhere! The students collaborated with Connected Health Solutions to make ... Read More
In case you haven’t hopped on the House of Cards bandwagon yet, here are five reasons why this political drama will tickle your feminist fancy: 1)  It passes the Bechdel test.Yes, there are scenes with two female characters with names that talk to each other about something other than men. Woo! 2) Robin Wright is a bad-ass in this show. Her role as Mrs. Claire Underwood is bold, sexy and sometimes pretty darn scary. Also, she ... Read More
Laurence Philomene describes her photos as a “pre-teen sleepover gone wrong,” but I still kind of wish I went to this party. The 20-year-old freelance photographer from Montreal explores gender and femininity in many of her groups of photographs, but “Sugar High” takes the cake!The photographer was also inspired by fine artist Wolfgang Tillmans, particularly this quote: "As soon as you represent something, it’s always a mediated, ...

  A wistful blend of folk acoustics and kittenish pop synths are just half of Denver-based musician Esme Patterson's new album, Woman To Woman. Patterson is well known for her work as a vocalist for the band Paper Bird and has performed and collaborated with other groups like Tennis, Shakey Graves, Nathaniel Rateliff, Nick Jaina, and Reed Foehl. This is Patterson's second solo release and it couldn't be coming out at a better time. Patterson's newest musical ... Read More
If you’re as done with this week as we are, the moody, experimental sounds of Jihae are a perfect fit right about now. Not only is the South Korean singer crafting a weird-wave, synth-meets-rock-then-says-hey-to-soul genre of her own, but as a multimedia artist she incorporates her artistic vision into all aspects of her music. Take, for example, her latest work, the video for “Illusion of You,” the single off her fourth album of the same name. ... Read More
I’m an illustration student – which is basically just an excuse to go see animated movies as an adult without children and not look creepy. So yes, that’s why I as a 21- year-old woman have intense opinions on todays animated features – especially when it comes to gender and race representation. Animated movies are feeding the creative parts of our children’s brains and it’s important to be critical of ... Read More
The past few years have seen an explosion of retro-leaning, surf-y bands with style for days. But our favorites, bar none, are the Dum Dum Girls. Led by frontwoman Dee Dee Penny, the band is known for its updated girl-group sound and goth-princess stagewear. Think the Shangri-Las (if they smoked a lot more weed) or the Ronettes (if they traded their beehives for black leather jackets.) Their third LP Too True finds the band departing from its ’60s ...

Looks like Orange Is the New...back. (Sorry.) Despite the onslaught of other binge-able TV shows in the interim months (True Detective, House of Cards, Game of Thrones, etc.) the absense of Jenji Kohan's sleeper hit Netflix series has been felt. Much has already been written about how thrilling it is to see an unflinching depiction of women – almost exclusively women – moving through the annals of prison. So many former taboos in a single show! In ... Read More
