The very first photo EVER uploaded to the web has just surfaced, and it’s just as good as we always hoped.  It’s a promotional shot for an all-female comedy group, Les Horribles Cernettes, based at the Nuclear Research center in Switzerland. Yeah, pretty random.  The photo was posted 22 years ago by Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the man who created the World Wide Web, according to The Guardian. They continued to play shows until 2012, and were ... Read More

The GOP is apparently trying to figure out why, oh why, they aren’t getting more of the female vote!  It is strange that a group so devoted to saving women from their heathen desire for contraception could consistently rank behind their democratic competitors in the polls. Lucky for them, they’ve got North Carolina Congresswoman Renee Ellmers to advise them in their quest to win over female voters.  On Friday, July 18, Ellmers addressed a ... Read More

In case you didn't know: Fat phobia is defined as a pathological fear of fatness. "America manages to champion terrible food while also hating fat people." I can distinctly remember a time when I realized that I had severe body issues. It was much earlier than you'd think.  I believe I was about 8 and the words of my fat phobic, uncaring father and my disturbed, anorexic, ignorant stepmother Linda played like a record in my head. "Don't eat that or you'll get ... Read More
India-born, Southern California raised singer-songwriter Zoya Mohan has already jumped through the hoops that many artists do later in their career. The incredibly self-aware and talented artist has made a mold for herself in the challenging music industry - an industry that holds itself on predisposed ideas of "what will sell" that are often very misogynistic in nature. Zoya taught herself the nooks and crannies of guitar playing at 13 years old, when her father ... Read More

Michel Gondry’s latest endeavor reads like a twisted storybook, weaving realistic tropes with fantastic visions of both the intensely light and the intensely dark.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- menstruation can be the living worst. It’s smelly, messy, sticky, painful, and so many other unpleasant things. Imagine how much it would suck being on your period while living in a developing country. A lot of people all over the world don’t have the money to pay for pads, tampons, pain medication, what have you. Even if they did have the money, there’s nowhere nearby to get these items for ...
