I'm not a body-piercing fanatic, but I did get my nose pierced just before graduating from college, where I met and admired many hippies. Some of them had their noses pierced, and it looked beautiful on them, so I wanted to hop on the bandwagon.
(An example of the aforementioned foxy hippies)
All this got me wondering how hippies latched on to nose piercing, and I started doing some heavy Googling. ... Read More

Perhaps there are some of you out there who, like me, still don't quite know what "zine" means. No worries, here's a quick explanation: "zine" (pronounced zeehn) is short for magazine, but that doesn't fully capture the spirit of a zine. To use the words of NYC Feminist Zinefest, a zine is "like a small, pocket-sized emissary of ideas".
But these definitions will only get you so far. This Saturday, February 25th, at the Brooklyn Commons, come ... Read More

Searching the words “ballet” and “feminism” in tandem is unlikely to yield many inspiring results. After all, ballet has a unique rep in people’s perceptions of the dance world—as a rigorous discipline that celebrates only traditional femininity and promotes unhealthy body-image standards. There's even a belief that ballerinas spend most of their stage time supported by their male partners (an assumption that I, a longtime ... Read More

A couple of years ago, whilst browsing in a store, a man suddenly came up to me and put his hands on my shoulders. I was shocked, but managed to say, "What are you doing?" "And he said something like, "Oh, you were in my way," as if that made any sense. I wish I had come up with something more cutting in response, but the experience really rattled me, and I just walked away.
Of course, sometimes I actually am in people's way, and, as a small female, I am ... Read More

Do you like bicycles, art, and weird shit?
What a silly question, of course you do!
That said, you’re going to want to attend the silent auction benefit, "Bizarre! Weird Bikes! Weird Art!” (plus, I think it’s common knowledge that anything with three exclamation points in the title is guaranteed to be awesome).
It all goes down tonight from 8-midnight @ Brooklyn Fireproof Bar (119 Ingram St.).
Not only ... Read More

A few weeks ago I stumbled across the blog, But You’re Like Really Pretty and instantly became a huge fan.
Each Wednesday, illustrator and site owner Ryan Casey, posts a hilariously mean webcomic featuring someone or something in pop culture that’s been a particular source of annoyance that week (example below).
Her illustrations are so good and so clever that the blog was recently nominated for a Webby and won the 2010 Bloggie ... Read More
Forbes Magazine has just released its annual list of “The 100 Most Powerful Celebrities” and it appears the past year was particularly good for Hollywood’s most talented and versatile ladies.
Raking in a ridiculous $315 million from her media empire, the one and only Oprah Winfrey kicked Angelina Jolie out of the No. 1 spot to reclaim her throne.
She’s followed by Beyonce at No. 2 who earned $87 million largely due to her ... Read More

I feel as though I should start with a declaimer:
Content in this blog may be unsuitable for children. Actually, if you’re a girl under the age of 18, please don’t continue reading. I don’t want to be responsible for exposing an entire generation of young woman to this. So just go do your homework or something.
It’s unclear whether this dance move originated in Brazilian nightclubs or their bedrooms, but I can only assume ... Read More

Sporting beauty, brains, and buckets of talent, Whip It co-stars Ellen Page and Alia Shawkat are already Hollywood forces to be reckoned with, and they’re not even old enough to rent a car.
by Emily McCombsLet's just get this out of the way right now: Ellen Page and Alia Shawkat have both kissed Michael Cera (Shawkat in her definitive role as Maeby Fünke on the Emmy-winning TV series Arrested Development, and Page as part of her ... Read More
