What happens in Vegas, will hopefully stay in Vegas this week.
Yesterday, during a speech at the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries in Las Vegas, former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, thankfully survived an airborne black and orange athletic shoe unscathed.
The shoe was thrown by an unidentified woman in the audience, who was later detained and curiously did not explain why she felt so inclined to throw footwear at the lovely Hilary during her speech ... Read More

There are more than 124 women who will be taking the stage this weekend at the "Women in the World: Stories + Solutions" summit to speak about their stories, accomplishments, and missions for change. One of the attendees was the magnificent Hillary Rodham Clinton, who got the ball rolling with a critique of a media-driven double standard for women.
“The double standard is alive and well," Clinton notes, "and I think in many respects the media is the ... Read More

The founder of the Westboro Baptist Church, Fred Phelps Sr., died of natural causes at 84-years-old on Wednesday, March 19th. Phelps and his small Topeka, Kansas-based congregation, which is largely comprised of his own extended family members, is best known for leading repugnant anti-gay protests at public events such as funerals of AIDS victims and deceased members of the armed forces. The church was founded in the 1950's and has been spewing nonsense for way ... Read More

I think it's safe to say that Kristen Bell is awesome. She's one of those celebrities I never mind hearing about, because she has opinions and isn't afraid to share them. Whether it's about her LOVE of sloths, her war against the "pedorazzi" with her husband, Parenthood star Dax Shepherd, the release of the long-awaited Veronica Mars movie (!!!), or, in this case, one of her tweets to the Republican National Committee. Kristen Bell tweeted this a few ... Read More

In case you are one of the few who hasn't seen this plastered all over Facebook (thank you, Aunt Susan), here's the breaking news of the day: Russell Brand is a political genius.
A few nights ago, Brand appeared on the British political program "Newsnight" where he discussed the state of the world with host Jeremy Paxman. At first, it's mildly amusing to watch the author of literary crown-jewel "My Booky Wook" use words like "paradigm" and "lexicon" without ... Read More

I usually agree with the Internet’s recognition and subsequent celebration of all the incredible women who run the world: Michelle Obama, Beyoncé, Tina Fey, Hillary Clinton, and so many more.
But I’ve been disappointed in the past by its failure to appreciate one of the baddest ladies in all the land, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
During the recent high-profile rulings on DOMA (joyous!) and the VRA (devastating ... Read More

Women are chatting about all sorts of issues in salons, but we're not talking about spots where you can get your hair cut and colored. Glynda Carr and Kimberly Peeler-Allen of Higher Heights for America (which they founded in 2011) are organizing social gatherings where intellectual conversations and cultural discussions ensue--the kinds of salons that have been held for centuries.
(Above, a 17th-century women's salon)
Higher Heights creates ... Read More

We have a lesbian superhero, so why not a Lesbian Super PAC (or Political Action Committee)?
Just in case you're not up on your politics: a PAC is a group that dedicates itself to campaigning for social and political change. And yesterday, some very well-known lesbian activists debuted LPAC, dedicated to protecting their rights and those of their families. According to the LPAC website, the group’s other main goals are “Supporting sexual and ... Read More

As a woman, I love when rich white men with a chip on their shoulders limit my reproductive rights and tell me that I can’t marry the woman I love. Since I’m still paying for Eve’s first sin, I haven’t yet had the chance to pray the gay away. But I’m sure I’ll be okay once I find a guy to keep me barefoot and pregnant.
Those poor emotional creatures who say otherwise are simply distracted by “shiny objects”, because ... Read More

On December 13, 64 people were arrested at a punk show that was raising money for a local orphanage in the Aceh province of Indonesia. Those taken weren’t charged with a crime or brought before a court, but were arrested for having mohawks, tattoos, earrings, and wearing dark clothing. Basically for being “punk.”
These men and women, most in their early twenties, were taken to the Aceh State Police School for “reeducation.” The Aceh ... Read More
