Singer and actress Jill Scott was also hacked, a piece of information I did not learn from television news.  It is a personal, overwhelming issue of mine that every gym I have ever been to insists on running Fox News in equal proportion to other news channels, signaling that for every minute of plane crash or protest coverage we take in from CNN, we must be equally as exposed to racist, sexist, nationalistic, or otherwise deeply offensive ...

  Video game critic Anita Sarkeesian, who has tackled issues like the Damsel in Distress archetype, Manic Pixie Dream Girls and the Smurfette Principle in her series Tropes vs. Women, was driven out of her home last week by violent, sexual threats in which an internet troll named her parents and posted her address.   After publicizing the threats by reposting them in an image on her Twitter feed, @femfreq, she reassured fans by posting the ...

Good news, fellow warrior princesses! Through osteological sexing of the bones of a group of 14 Viking corpses found in eastern England, scholar Shane McLeod has found evidence that about half of the Viking corpses were female. The study says that "these results, six female Norse migrants and seven male, should caution against assuming that the great majority of Norse migrants were male, despite the other forms of evidence suggesting the contrary. This result ... Read More

Writer and motivational speaker Robin Korth recently wrote a piece titled “My ‘Naked’ Truth” on Huffington Post this summer, speaking about her experience in online dating. The now, nearly 60-year-old radiant lady is someone full of poignant (and funny) stories with a side of female empowerment!  On her blog she talks about how she spent the first 51 years of her life living for other people. The idea of what is expected from ... Read More
Hang time with the hilarious host of The Eric Andre show. Eric Andre’s pants are missing. No, this is not one of the daring hidden-camera pranks the comedian has become known for on The Eric Andre Show—a bizarre send-up of crappy public access programming that has been steadily gaining fans on the Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim block since 2012. Rather, Andre seems to have actually misplaced the pants he planned to wear today. (“My ... Read More
  From Girls, to Obvious Child, to Transparent, actress Gaby Hoffmann is in everything we want to see.In a world where former-child-star meltdowns are a dime a dozen, a late afternoon lunch in Brooklyn with 32-year-old actress Gaby Hoffmann is a refreshingly chill oasis. Back in the late '80s and early '90s, Hoffmann nabbed some of the choicest kid roles of the era, in films such as Field of Dreams, Uncle Buck and Sleepless ... Read More

Miranda July is at it again. The director, artist, writer, and overall creative powerhouse just launched a new messaging service in collaboration with Miu Miu, and it's awesome—though anything involving both Miranda and Miuccia Prada is enough to turn my eyes into giant cartoon hearts. The app, titled Somebody, was created to explore the chaotic opposite of the efficient and concise communication we enjoy today. As July told AnOther, Somebody is the ... Read More
The Modern Man is the Internet’s latest mangled bits of thirsty, quasi-Men’s Right Activist dating advice coming from Dan Bacon, a self-appointed “dating and relationship expert.” Needless to say, Bacon is only concerned with heterosexual, cisgender dudes. Obviously.    Promising men the ultimate advice for scoring a gal, Bacon flaunts his “expertise” with women via a cheekily [seemingly photoshopped] image of a ... Read More
