It's time to talk about Tal Peleg. The makeup artist has made her rounds on The Huffington Post, Lost At E Minor, and flooded the dashboards of tumblr users everywhere – for good reason. Peleg absolutely shits all over everyone else's makeup game, turning her own face into a canvas of elaborately (and probably painstakingly) painted eyelids, each telling a different story. She makes use of her eyebrows, lashes and the shape of her face to create ... Read More
This Post may be contain content that is triggering to survivors of sexual assault.  Whether you’re into the world of comics or not, you know that it’s not a friendly world for women. Whether it’s the impossibly buxom women characters or the (mostly male) die-hard fan base, it’s hard to be a lady and like comics. Janelle Asselin, a former employee of DC Comics and total comic fangirl, recently wrote a controversial article for the ... Read More
My heart just exploded through my ribs.  If this video of a grandfather being surprised with an English Bulldog puppy/pile of chubby wrinkles doesn’t make you smile just a little bit, then I don’t know what to tell you. What I can tell you is that his tearful, raspy cries of joy, “ Oh my gawd, holy jesus! Oh my gawd, hello sweetie!” will have you making grabby hands at the nearest soft object and clutching it to your chest!We ... Read More
The title track off Allen’s upcoming album, Sheezus, calls out everyone that’s tried to create unfriendly competition among women in the music industry. The media often pits women artists against each other, leaving only one number one spot. So it comes as no surprise that most of the media outlets reporting on Allen’s latest opus miss the point entirely and are attempting to warp the track's message:Take a listen:What blows my mind is ...

I vaguely remember being eleven or so and going to Take Your Child to Work Day – I sat on the floor of my mother's office and took an aptitude test, and then I played with dolls as she, you know, worked. I still can't say how seeing a real-live attorney's office up close in my formative years has impacted my particular (read: vague) career trajectory...but I do remember how curious it was to see “work” demystified. Here was my mom's office, I ... Read More
I’m not going to lie, I adore Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone: the on screen and off screen couple that star in The Amazing Spiderman rebooted franchise. I think they’re collectively adorable and I want to shrink them down and keep them in my pocket for when I’m sad. However, after a small sexist comment slipped out of Garfield’s dreamy lips during a Q&A interview to promote the upcoming film The Amazing Spiderman 2, I had a moment ... Read More
For you girlies who don’t know, compulsory sterilization (or, forced sterilization) is a government program that sterilizes people without their consent. Many countries, even our own, use population control and determined "sexual deviancy" as an excuse to sterilize. Eugenics refers to the practice of cleansing a population of “undesirables" — and distressingly enough, this concept is now being used as a punitive punishment for the ... Read More
Alice Boman's EP II should be listened to outdoors during a spring dusk, at around 7 in the evening.  Her voice, full of impossible longing, speaks the darkness of distance and the brightness of pyres burning in sunset colors. The album opens with "What," a track that features a rhythm section made up of the occasional kick and ambient scratches, plus gorgeous piano floating in a lake of white noise. "Over" is one of the highlights of the record, reminiscent ... Read More
I’m a huge fan of girly feminist embroidery projects. I even make some myself. That’s why when I stumbled upon Mo Morgan’s sassy but honest embroideries, I absolutely fell in love. I have a soft spot for embroidery activism. Maybe it’s the juxtaposition between the quaint, dainty art-form (with its stitched-in associations to the domestic housewife) and the bloodthirsty history of the women’s movement. The rich history behind ... Read More
Have you ever played online “room escape games?” If you haven’t, then you probably have wasted much less time on the Internet then I have. The games are always super challenging and are based on the premise that you are trapped in a room and can only escape after solving multiple mind puzzles. By clicking around a room, you stumble upon clues and objects that will help you to unlock various containers or drawers that lead to more keys or ...
