A couple of days ago, Nathan Rabin, the creator of the ever-so-catchy term 'manic pixie dream girl' wrote an apology on Salon, expressing how deeply sorry he was for coining the term. As someone who l-o-v-e-s to analyze harmful tropes of women in film and TV (given that we have so many options to choose from) I was a little hesitant to take his apology seriously. While, sure, he may feel sorry that what started out as a funny phrase to call a screenwriting ... Read More
I realized that my computer truly knew me on the day that the internet started advertising exclusively novelty socks on every single website I visited... Although the image below is incredibly bizarre, the interwebs has clearly detected my love for awesome socks.  You may not know this, but socks are the secret superheroes of outfit-building. A good pair of socks can tie an outfit together, incorporating the varied colors into a unified whole. Or, a great ... Read More
Megumi Igarashi, a Japanese artist who works under the pseudonym Rokudenashiko, meaning “good-for-nothing-girl”, has built an artistic career using models of her vagina. Igarashi began using the theme of her vagina in order to challenge the social taboo against even using the word “vagina”.  “They never show the vagina in the media, so I didn’t know what a normal vagina looked like.  I was wondering if mine was ...

There’s a special place in my heart for comedy that is so true it hurts. We got a taste of it when Lizzy Caplan deadpanned through a magnificent bit about how men can be funny. Now we’re getting it again with Feminist Bros, a new YouTube duo that voice their opinions on movies on the YouTube channel Citizen Radio. They’re so right on with their assessment of horror films that it’s impossible to watch without cracking a smile. Just to give ... Read More
If you haven’t heard already, Leighton Meester is serving up every Of Mice and Men audience member (and “selfie with James Franco” taker) with a healthy dose of knowledge and double standard destruction.  Though the cast boasts an impressive roster of named actors, Meester wants to call attention to her character: the unnamed wife of Curley. If anyone is familiar with John Steinbeck’s novella Of Mice and Men, a cursory understanding of ... Read More
I was never one for binge-watching TV shows. That is, until I saw the first episode of Sex and the City on HBOGo. Needless to say, it sucked me in like a feathery Dior tornado, and to this day has not let go.  I may be a decade late to the game, but the outfits, like good cheese, only get better with age.   A few (okay, more than a few) episodes into one of my Sex and the City sprees, my brain started to short-circuit, and I started thinking about other ...

Sylvan Esso’s song “Play It Right” speaks of two sounds and two souls coming together. This, in a sense, is how Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn of Sylvan Esso came to be a band. After sharing the bill in a small club, Meath asked Sanborn to remix the song she had written and the rest is history. The pair met up in Durham, North Carolina to start work on their self-titled debut album, a swirl of electro-pop beats and Meath’s cool and soothing ... Read More
Yesterday, TIME published an interesting opinion piece written by Steve Friess, which basically documented his “connection,” as a white gay man, to black women. “Dear Black Women: White Gays Are Your Allies, So Don’t Push Us Away” is riddled with racialized misogyny. But before I start response to the piece, I want to start out by saying that I am not a black woman; but, as a Latina, I have had my fair share of white gay men ... Read More
