If you've ever been a kid, or still are, you know that those who have not come of age yet can be real assholes. I'm sure you can think of a time when you saw someone bullied, were bullied, or worse, were the bully when you were younger. But can you think of a time when you saw an adult bullied by a kid? If you watch the below video, you unfortunately will always remember such an instance. You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this video This video of ... Read More
No, I'm not talking about hot women in the the Olympics. Well, they could be. Regardless, these women are knock outs in the true sense. This year's games marks a first and a last: the first time women will compete in boxing and the last time women will be closed out of any part of the Olympics.   Women’s boxing is an Olympic sport for the first time, with thirty-six fighters in three weight classes competing. Although the sport as a whole has slipped ... Read More
Larry Getlen at the New York Post interviewed Adam Carolla today to talk about his new book, which is about growing up in North Hollywood, and probably a lot of other things no one cares about. Today, he's saying a bunch of inflammatory stuff-- probably to try to gain some sort of cultural relevance other than his podcast or old show. One of those things is that women aren't funny. For a dude whose old TV show was based almost entirely on making fun of women, or ... Read More
Now that it's not copacetic to throw the V-word around in the realm of American government, I decided to go ahead and make a short list of places where it is okay to use the word "vagina." Feel free to use this as a guide so that you don't startle any unexpected listeners. We don't know what the free use of anatomical terms could lead to, but some possibilities are: maturity, correctness, tolerance and, of course, anarchy.   1) The street. It's totally cool ...

  You’ve heard of the amazing things going on in Russia. Right? You’ve heard of the protests in Red Square and surprise show at the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow. I know you’ve seen images of these fiercely brave women dawning balaclava head gear and outfitted in neon. Well at least I hope so. Russian all girl punk band Pussy Riot has made headlines over the past couple of months with the guerilla style activist work and the ... Read More
Flappers knew how to get dolled up and keep it copacetic in the 20s, and today we love them just as much as they would have wanted us to. Besides partying and staying in style, these ladies created a whole new language so catchy that a lot of it stuck around until today. We all know that the Real McCoy is the cat’s pajamas, not to take any wooden nickels, and that no one likes a wet blanket. But do you know what “Butt me” or “Oh, ... Read More
If you've ever caught the tiny voice in the back of your head thinking to yourself that the 33 cent pay gap between women and men really isn’t all that big, first of all: you are the worst, and second of all: let’s see if you’re singing a different tune when you see all the cool things you could afford when those cents add up. The Center for American Progress plugged in the numbers and found some interesting results. In 2010 the median ... Read More
Remember when the Vatican blasted the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (aka about 80 percent of American sisters) for focusing on the poor and hungry instead of railing against reproductive rights and gay people? Well, those “radical feminist” gals haven’t taken the criticism lying down. And with public support behind them, The New York Times reports that sisters from Network, a liberal-leaning Catholic lobby group, will ... Read More
    The relationship between women and fashion is complicated, or at the very least, layered. We all need to buy clothes. That one’s obvious, or like the first layer. The second level of this cake (I’ve made it a cake) is the clothes that we buy reflect how we are judged. Teen girls all over the internet are counseling each on how to dress like a certain persona (i.e. Wear hemp bracelets if you want to be a surfer). At the top of our cake ... Read More

Rock The Slut Vote!

BY Intern Tessa in Feminizzle |

Calling all sluts! Need to register to vote? Look no further. You can Rock The Slut Vote right here. This is a movement which was created to “fight the GOP effort to bully, subjugate and silence women,” and “wrest the power from the word slut and help women get informed, get involved, get registered and vote”. The word slut was used publicly by Rush Limbaugh earlier this year to describe Sandra Fluke, who testified on behalf of ... Read More
