I never thought I’d have to say this, but … does President Obama need to borrow one of Mitt Romney’s binders full of women? Recent appointments for Obama’s second-term cabinet shows a staggering lack of diversity. A now infamous photograph showing the President with his senior advisors – a room full of white men, lounging around in their best business casual – could just as well be a photo of poker night at the Hamptons, as at ...

Atlanta couple Bria Airb and Chrissy Chambers hit YouTube this past summer with humorous, equality-themed duets. Today, their videos collectively boast over 325,000 views –and with good reason. Tackling hot-button themes like Chick-Fil-A's anti-gay stance and the Republican Party's rape gaffes, they'll manage to make any feminist chuckle (instead of pulling out her hair). We chatted with the singing, song-writing, and dress-up loving duo about the 2012 ... Read More

WTF. Yesterday, CNN published an article examining how women vote with their hormones, not with, you know, their brains. Titled “Study looks at voting and hormones: Hormones may influence female voting choices,” the article has since been taken down from CNN, but this is the Internet, and it still exists in its full form here and here. The article begins with the offensive opening sentence, “While the campaigns eagerly pursue female voters, ... Read More
  Reuters has recently reported that feminist Mormons are not voting for Mitt Romney. First of all, FEMINIST MORMONS EXIST?  I'm down with that! Secondly, you know the guy screwed up somewhere along the way if other members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints aren’t voting for one of their own. Aimee Hickman, co-editor of Mormon feminist magazine Exponent II, took Romney to task for his comments during last Tuesday's ... Read More
It’s that time of election year again: the time for presidential debates. The debates may have you screaming angrily at your TV screen, but they can also be hilarious, especially if you keep Twitter and Tumblr open while you watch. From Biden’s “Malarkey!” to Romney’s binders full of women, here are the top 10 memes from the past three presidential and vice presidential debates:  10. Badass Moderator Martha Raddatz Martha ...

Watching the debate last night, we couldn't help but notice a lot of similarities between the Presidential/Vice-Presidential debates and the always-entertaining Real Housewives of New Jersey reunions.  1. They get in each other's faces. Who would even want to watch a Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion in which they don't get in each other's faces?!  2. They call each other liars. Even Candy Crowley backed Obama up when Romney was spewing ... Read More
Last night, after Mitt Romney made a comment about “binders full of women,” social media took the unintentionally hilarious phrase and ran with it - a tumblr has already been created.  ln keeping with Romney’s idea that women are simply stored in paper documents, Brainpickings has posted a list of twelve rules dated 1943 (possibly found in a binder somewhere) that any decent woman should follow. Women shall not appear on the ...

  In the now-infamous video of Mitt Romney speaking to some of his contributors (you know, the one where he basically said he could care less about half of America ‘cause they’re all freeloaders), Mitt also talks about his father, who was white but was born in Mexico. Mitt said that “had he been born of Mexican parents, I’d have a better shot of winning this. And I say that jokingly, but it would be helpful to be Latino.” Hahaha! ... Read More
TIME’s Paul Moakley uncovered a softer side of Tin Man presidential candidate Mitt Romney, shown in a romantic photo he sent to then-girlfriend Ann in 1968. Romney apparently sent Ann a series of similar photos, an effort to keep her interested while he was doing missionary work in France.  The two married just a few months after he returned to the ...
