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
Though our nation’s tradition of beauty pageants has been hotly debated as being both pro/anti woman, one Idaho beauty queen is using her platform to de-stigmatize the insulin pump for those affected with diabetes.  Sierra Sandison rocked her insulin pump throughout the Miss Idaho pageant, but her especially visual placement of the pump during the swimsuit competition made the image and her activism go viral.  After winning the Miss Idaho crown, ...

Zayn Malik’s Instagram is no longer private and my heart has burst into a thousand pieces. I’m a 21-year-old woman. I am also the biggest Directioner in existence. And while I’m a Directioner across the board, I have a very VERY special place in my heart for Zayn Malik.I’ve been basically betrothed to Zayn Malik since I first witnessed him and his buddies in their “What Makes You Beautiful” music video in 2011. I fell ... Read More
The very first photo EVER uploaded to the web has just surfaced, and it’s just as good as we always hoped.  It’s a promotional shot for an all-female comedy group, Les Horribles Cernettes, based at the Nuclear Research center in Switzerland. Yeah, pretty random.  The photo was posted 22 years ago by Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the man who created the World Wide Web, according to The Guardian. They continued to play shows until 2012, and were ... Read More
The GOP is apparently trying to figure out why, oh why, they aren’t getting more of the female vote!  It is strange that a group so devoted to saving women from their heathen desire for contraception could consistently rank behind their democratic competitors in the polls. Lucky for them, they’ve got North Carolina Congresswoman Renee Ellmers to advise them in their quest to win over female voters.  On Friday, July 18, Ellmers addressed a ... Read More
On June 24th, troubled inmate Jane Doe assaulted yet another staff member and destroyed property in the Connecticut adult women’s prison where she had been detained in solitary confinement for 78 days.  After the appeals of her lawyer and supporters, she was once again relocated, this time to a psychiatric center.  Then, when she was formally accused of assault, she was relocated again, this time to Connecticut’s Juvenile Training School in ...

"Local teenage girl attends a seemingly innocent high school party with no conception that later that evening, she would be drugged and subsequently raped by monstrous, morally debauched high school boys, or scorned and mocked by social-media-ridden photographs commemorating the horrific event." A tale that has become so commonplace, that it seems almost as unremarkable as the headline “Local Family Searches for Runaway Dog.” But thanks to 16 year old ... Read More
I was surfing the internet at around 1pm yesterday, when I suddenly came across a headline that almost literally broke my heart.  “Oh, my gosh,” I gasped, slightly paralyzed. “Elaine Stritch just died!” The other bloggers looked around and at me with looks of concern. “Who?” they asked. It sadly occurred to me that not everyone my age would know who she was, but how could I begin to describe her? She was a star of Broadway, ... Read More
As a die hard, binge-watched-the-second-season-in-13-consecutive-hours Orange Is the New Black fanatic, you can imagine my utter dismay and contrition upon realizing that, unbeknownst to me, the series is actually based on an autobiographical book. How can this be? I’m a fraud,  a poseur, (or as Holden Caulfield would say), a phony. But I resolved, right then and there, not to allow for this shameful instance of ignorance to define me, and promptly made ... Read More
Marina Watanabe, also known by her Youtube alias, MarinaShutUp, gives me major hope for the future of feminists on Youtube. In an interweb-vortex full of trolls and hater comments, Marina stands strong with quick-wit, deadpan humor and a lot of sass, while working to create a safe and thoughtful place as a nose ring-clad feminist crusader. Discussing issues ranging from myths about feminism, to coming to grips with depression, to her love of McNuggets; Marina is ... Read More
