What’s the deal with Facebook hating so hard lately, taking down photos revealing realities of women’s issues?   This past week Facebook banned Hildur Lilliendahl Viggósdóttir, an Icelandic women’s rights activist, for reposting sexist comments she found publicly posted on the site.  Now we’re hearing that Facebook punished a woman for posting a photo of herself breastfeeding her daughter.   Gina Crosley-Corcoran is the ...

  If you haven’t already heard, Bic now has a line of pens “For Her,” and the only thing that sets them apart from all their other pens is that they are pink and purple.  Yet, they are twice the price of normal pens.   I know.   Even better though, Bic actually had the gall to ask awesome feminist Ellen DeGeneres to be their spokesperson for these lady pens, and asked her to be in a commercial, which Ellen said on her show “outraged” her, then ...

  If you could have your bodily aromas handed to you in a vial, or even in the form of a scented candle, would you want it?  Martynka Wawrzyniak, a mixed-media and performance artist known for her unique use of unusual substances in her art, decided to discover her “essence,” and cultivated it into tangible objects, as well as an art installation.  Wawrzyniak spent a year working on a project in which she acted as both an investigator ...

  Azealia Banks is back with another video that’s bound to catch the attention of all those (like me) who had a stint of obsession with her video “212”, which went viral after its YouTube release a year ago.  Her latest single “Luxury,” off her mixtape Fantasea, however, is a bit different than the others.   Unlike her other previously released tracks like “212” and“L8R” this newest single lacks that fast, dirty rap that Banks has already ...

  Everything's cooler when it's scaled down to a teeny tiny size. So it's only right and natural that someone decided to create adorable tiny foods for our viewing and playing pleasure.   These miniature meals are created by Re-Ment, a collection of artists in Japan that make teensy weensy models of food items and meals scaled down to 1/6 the normal size. They're now being sold online as Barbie Doll food, and called Puchi Petite. They also make little ... Read More
  Any recent college grad knows that jobs are increasingly hard to come by. Most often, the grads initially find themselves over or under-qualified for the gigs they're applying for, and to make matters worse, they're saddled with a tremendous amount of debt right off the bat. In fact, student loan debt currently tops $1 trillion here in America. Now there's a new campaign, Degrees of Separation raising awareness about the underemployment, joblessness, and ... Read More
Have you heard of Sweater Girls?  Honestly, I hadn’t until I gave their album Sweater Girls Were Here a listen.  Their latest album is a collection of cutesy songs about young love, heartbreak, and things like “riding bikes through the park,” as heard on the third track, “Pretty When You Smile.”  If you like to hum along to the smooth and indifferent vocals of Diana Meehan of Best Coast, or have ever found yourself ...

Fashion designer Nzinga Knight doesn't use low-cut necklines in her designs, or gowns with thigh-high slits exposing bare legs. There’s no cleavage, back, or belly showing on the models who wear her designs. Why? Knight's a devout Muslim. Instead of flaunting the wearer's assets, her work's sex appeal is tied to the mystery of the covered body. "The look of my work is sensual, mysterious, innovative," she told Yahoo! News. She explained that her target is ... Read More
