Be still my gender non-conforming heart.  We’ve recruited another human capable of flawlessly representing any and all genders to our secret cult.  JK, there’s no cult.  But Ruby Rose is totally queer, though, no JK about that. Rose began her career as a model for Girlfriend magazine, moving on to MTV VJ-ing in 2008 after beating out 2000 other hopefuls for the spot.  This opened the floodgates for Rose’s fame.  She has ...

Two weeks ago, La Guardia airport's terminal D was the equivalent of Apocalypse Now, with D standing for Doom, Delays and Deficient A/C. I was trying to fly back to my hometown for a mini-vacation to no avail, with Tropical Storm Arthur being all sassy-like, moving up the East Coast like he owned it and canceling flight after flight. My number of failed standby attempts was matched only by the number of overpriced dirty martinis I drank in the terminal bar ... Read More
In a recent interview with InStyle Magazine, Zooey Deschanel let out a secret- not all women are dying to have babies! Dang it, Zooey, the men weren’t supposed to know! In all seriousness, though, as someone who is not interested in having kids and hears all sorts of opinions on the topic (“You’re too young to decide!” “You just haven’t met the right guy yet!” “What if someday you’re with a guy who really wants ...

Last weekend, A Voice For Men, an online male activism site which was mentioned in the 2012 Southern Poverty Law Center intelligence report about misogynistic sites, hosted the first ever International Conference on Men’s Issues. Yep. Activists of all genders gathered to talk about the oppression of males in our society.  I’m honestly not sure how to react to this. I spend all day every day blogging about the oppression that women face on a ... Read More

According to Alyssa Croft’s new study in Psychological Science, findings suggest that when domestic chores are split equally between parents, daughters typically have greater career aspirations.

I have a confession, everyone! I’ve joined the online dating community and so far, it’s been a mothereffing rollercoaster. Before I begin, if any of the guys have Googled me and found this, for the sake of our potential future: stop reading now. Kidding (not really, though). So, I joined a popular, free website a couple months ago because I was sick of meeting no one interesting and liked the idea of window shopping for men in the comfort of my home. ... Read More
Feminist Frank is the meme of the week! Guys could take a few pointers from our friend, Frank.  Gentlemen: if you ever find that you're tempted to be a sexist pig in a conversation, try ending every comment with the thought that women are human beings! Super effective and really swell.   I leave off with one of my favorite quotes by Kelley Temple: “Men who want to be feminists do not need to be given a space in feminism. They need to take the ...

In a recent article, the Wall Street Journal talked about the advances of new cleaning products and how they've changed to work even faster than ever, blah, blah, blah. More importantly though, WSJ decided to accompany the text of the piece with drawings of women, and only women, using these housekeeping items. Because as we all know, men can't complete such mundane tasks! Those are to be left to us helpless females. Men and women are equal and all, but who could ... Read More
