Baddiewinkle’s Instagram captures all of the social media lingo, poses, trends, and hashtags so well that it sometimes seems like satire. This sassy lady promises to “steal your man” and even strives to be on the Ellen show while posting psychedelic selfies and twerking.
It’s almost as thought she went through a teen girl’s Instagram and duplicated her wardrobe, poses, and captions.
Exhibit A: Baddiewinkle reppin a peace sign ... Read More

Get ready for it; we’re about to see a bunch of white males scrambling for the Late Show spot now that David Letterman has announced his retirement. The current top contenders include Jon Stewart, Jay Leno, Craig Ferguson, and Conan O’Brien. *yawn*
Men have traditionally hosted late night television because of the outdated gendered blocking of Television viewing times. Daytime television has no shortage of female hosts because daytime TV's assumed ... Read More

The internets and social media networks have been all abuzz about Ellen Page coming out in her speech at the Human Rights Campaign Time to Thrive Conference last week. If you live under a rock and/or haven’t watched it already, you really, really should.
Her brave speech (seriously, tears just listening to her voice shake), the support from her fellow actors, and the media’s response to an actress choosing to “live openly and ... Read More
If there are two things I love, it’s animals and Ellen DeGeneres. Since it’s Ellen’s birthday this week, she decided to break the rules a little bit and share her very special Super Bowl commercial ahead of time. Ellen stars as Goldilocks—Ellilocks, if you will—except instead of searching for porridge, she really wants to groove out to the perfect tune on the app Beats Music. Always the animal lover, Ellen ends up having a blast with ... Read More

We still haven't gotten over the horrendous comments and actions of fat-hate coming from Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries. Luckily we can always count on Ellen to poke fun at such insanely ridiculous situations like these, and that's just what she did on her show last Friday. She has one thing to say to Abercrombie: "Fitch, please!" Not only is this clip hilarious, DeGeneres ends with a truly inspiring anti-fat-hate message about true beauty. She extends ... Read More

In her usual funny but pointed way, Ellen has called out the Boy Scouts on their rather un-scout-ly policy of banning gay men from their organization. In a clip from a recent episode, Ellen puts in her two cents about the Boy Scouts' decision to postpone their vote on whether to allow the participation of openly gay members and leaders in the future. In her support of allowing gay members, Ellen mentions that they will be following the footsteps of "the Army, ... Read More

If you haven’t already heard, Bic now has a line of pens “For Her,” and the only thing that sets them apart from all their other pens is that they are pink and purple. Yet, they are twice the price of normal pens.
Even better though, Bic actually had the gall to ask awesome feminist Ellen DeGeneres to be their spokesperson for these lady pens, and asked her to be in a commercial, which Ellen said on her show “outraged” her, then ... Read More
