The news of Amy Winehouse's death this weekend was, while perhaps not a shock, still  devastating. And in the days since, much been made of her addiction, as though somehow she got what she deserved, or what she was looking for; that being an active addict is about having a death wish. But I don't think Amy did drugs or drank because she wanted to die; I think she did them in order to manage living.Like so many true artists, Amy seems to have felt things, ... Read More
We're superexcited about the upcoming fourth of July holiday. Okay, we admit that's more because it's a three-day weekend and an excuse for a fun backyard party than because of its origins as an important national holiday. Either way, it's a great way day to celebrate your own independent spirit by crafting or cooking up some fun red white and blue items. Here are some great ideas scavenged from around the interwebs:Free printables make for quick and cute ... Read More
I haven't been able to get the story of the missing "Gay Girl in Damascus" blogger -- Amina Arraf -- out of my mind since I first heard about it on Monday. The blog, which has been online since February of 2011, detailed the life of an out American/Syrian lesbian and, in particular, her views on the uprisings in Syria and her desire to see the current administration fall. But as detailed here previously, someone who identified herself as Amina's cousin posted to ... Read More
The truth has outed. The weiner was Weiner’s, as was the chin/nose shot, the two pussies (which were actually cats, what did you think, pervert?) and the chest shot, which seemed to me the most suspect of all, as I have never seen so little body hair on a Jewish man. There were no “hackers,” who may now enter the vernacular as a descriptor for an shadowy, omniscient demimonde whose nefarious powers are feared and misunderstood by the body ... Read More
Remember just a few weeks ago, when everyone was so excited about Bridesmaids opening? And all those social networking efforts, including one here on our very own site, that were encouraging women to go out and see it on its opening weekend, so that it would do well at the box office, and we ladies could look forward to possibly getting another non-sucky movie about and for women in the next year or ten? And remember that the movie actually did do well at the box ... Read More
In the past few weeks, the TV networks have revealed the new shows that they'll be adding to their fall lineups. One thing that's been quite noticeable is that there are way more shows coming out this fall that are about women than, well, maybe since forever. And of those shows, two of them, on two different networks, are associated with comic Whitney Cummings. One, "Whitney", is a comedy that stars, and is about, Whitney Cummings. The other, which Cummings is ... Read More
The first time I saw a screening of the new Judd Apatow/Kristin Wiig vehicle Bridesmaids, I felt like I was watching an experimental film. I'm not talking Maya Deren or Chantal Ackerman, of course. But the fact is, Bridesmaids is an experiment, intended to answer the question: what would happen if Judd Apatow made a movie for women? What would happen if the guy who's built a career on making movies that examine the adult/adolescent male psyche—its  ... Read More

If yo've been following the news, you're already aware that there's been a lot of fear that the revolution in Egypt might be hijacked by the Muslim Brotherhood, a group that wants to institute Sharia law in Egypt. Of course, the West is frightened of this prospect because it would mean that Egypt would  become a hostile country, just like Iran. That's definitely worrying, but of greatest concern to me is the question of whether Egyptian women would see most ... Read More
Tired of the o.b. tampocolypse story yet? We're not. The o.b.s are still missing, and folks are beginning to turn to alternatives (more on that later). That's all good, I think. But what you young folks might not realize, is that once upon a time o.b. WAS the alternative. And in fact, women had to be convinced that it was OK to use them. "What? Put my finger where? Not me!" is what many American women thought when first confronted with the applicator-less ... Read More
