BuzzFeed has developed into a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine. I could admittedly spend hours sifting through its array of YouTube channels, laughing over the things babies do that’d be creepy if I did them, rejoicing over the fact that there are 11 goats that are JUST LIKE ME, and marveling at the remarkable evolution of the burrito. And while largely, these clips serve as a way to bond people over their mutually strange and awkward lives, BuzzFeed will ... Read More
For a lot of us, we are just beginning our journey with feminism. I personally didn’t learn the fancy terminology that comes with the movement until my first semester of college. This was also around the time that I started getting involved in feminist activism. When you start realizing that the world isn’t as perfect and safe as you once thought it was, you start to see everything (and everyone) as potentially “problematic.” The hard thing ... Read More
Although we’re fresh off the new Beyoncé-Nicki collaboration that has quite literally rocked the internet, we may have another duo of fire starters partnering up soon.   A few days ago, Miley Cyrus turned her Instagram into a one day, mini-shrine to one of music’s most prevalent and influential feminists: the one, the only Kathleen Hanna. She threw out a couple pro-Hanna comments, like “coolest ever” and “f*** ... Read More
Maya Peterson of Lawrenceville School was forced to step down as the first female black and Latina student president after some pictures of her mocking ‘typical white classmates’ emerged online. Lawrenceville is the most expensive prep school in the United States. It is located in New Jersey and one year's tuition costs about $35,000. It has some pretty successful alumni, too, including CEOs Michael Eisner and Lewis Bernard, many senators and the ... Read More
  In the past year, Buzzfeed, that pinnacle of workplace distractions, has become something of a crystal ball for those searching for a deeper understanding of his or her inner psyche. I swear sometimes it's like a tiny internet paw is reaching through my computer screen and telling me, "It's okay if your sense of direction is akin to a drunken toddler. Everything is going to be okay once I tell you whether or not you win at eating." Well, that is a bad ... Read More
  Well Buzzfeed, you've done it again. This might be your best quiz yet. May many male tears be shed on this day of glory.  Find out how misandrist you are simply by checking a few boxes! The jokes go from "ouchy mama" to "HOOOO BURN" to "Wow. Just wow. Society, man." Preach, BF, let's all just #BanMen. I answered a little too honestly, mostly because I was laughing too hard to click, so I got: "You're well on your way to becoming the misandrist ... Read More
Identifying as a feminist is a profoundly personal decision, colored by the nuances of our own experiences. In The Feminine Mystique, the great Betty Friedan suggested that for feminists, the personal is the political, that our private thoughts and desires necessitate public action. Because of the intimate nature of the movement, it’s easy to scrutinize judge other women, but internal strife often stalls social change. Susan B. Anthony and Lucy Stone’s ... Read More
A recent Buzzfeed list of famous women who don’t identify as feminists should instead have been called “proof that nobody understands what feminism is.” Most of the women on the list seemed to be responding to the question “are you a rabid man-hater?” not “are you a feminist?” and/or not understand that those are two very different questions. “I don’t think that I would consider myself a feminist,” Marissa Mayer said. “I think that I ...
