The Satanic Temple (TST) is asking the SCOTUS for the same religious protections and exemptions it gave Hobby Lobby.  This is a win for people with uteruses living under the new Informed Consent laws that 35 states have now enacted. Can a corporation have a religion, and then use said religion to weasel out of providing its employees the healthcare they deserve?  Absolutely!  Can actual human beings use religion to avoid parts of the law that they ...

Food policing sucks. It can totally catch you off guard the first time it happens.  “You’re getting fries too? Those’ll go straight to your hips, you know.” “Are you sure you seconds are a good idea?”  “Just a salad? You’re so thin—eat a darn cheeseburger!”  It’s startling, uncalled for, and people often don't know it’s a problem until it actually happens to them.  ... Read More
As most feminists know, the Women Against Feminism blog has blown up over the past couple of days. Hundreds of women have taken to social media to discuss why they are against the feminist movement, making arguments along the likes of “I love being a woman,” “I love men,” and “feminism isn’t about equality.” As much as I would love to sit with these women and argue with them over what feminism really is and whether or not ...

The feminist group femifesto is part of the collaborative team bringing us this hilarious infographic entitled “How Not to Get Raped,” which pokes fun at the victim-blaming culture that runs rampant in our society. These “safety tips” are based on actual pieces of advice that buy into victim-blaming and shaming that ignore the institutional reinforcement of rape culture and the responsibility of the ...

Imagine earning the opportunity to go out into the field and explore the world, as a budding young scientist, only to be greeted by predatory superiors.  In a PLOS ONE survey of mostly archaeologists and anthropologists, 64% of field scientists reported having experienced sexual harassment and 22% reported sexual assault in the field.  The academic article also noted that “73% percent of female [medical trainees] had experienced workplace sexual ...

According to BuzzFeed, a woman posted on the /r/relationships subreddit with some concerning news about her marriage. While on her way to the airport for a business trip, the woman's husband emailed her a spreadsheet that detailed their sexual activity since early June. For the past month and a half, the husband was recording the response his wife would give when he asked for sex; if she responded with a no, he would provide what the excuse was for ... Read More
  I love New York. I’ve lived here my whole life, and wouldn’t trade a minute of it for anything.  That being said, there’s a lot about growing up in a big city, especially for a young woman, that’s not so great. I’m thinking particularly of street harassment—it’s something that I, along with countless others around the world, have had to deal with almost every day from a very young age.Some of my friends yell ...

 In light of Japanese artist Megumi Igarashi’s arrest for her “obscene” vagina art, it’s safe to say that our society has developed some sort of vendetta against our vaginas (or has the extremely rational fear of getting eaten alive by our man-eating “Venus Flytraps”).  In part 1 of his memoir “My Vagina,” Nathan Schaaf divulges about his lack of knowledge regarding the “mysterious” nature ...

I write this article from a loving place.  John Legend is my mom’s favorite artist, and I’ve been conditioned to enjoy his smooth R&B style.  I’m not a diehard fan, but I definitely agree that he and his music are cool. However, liking a celebrity doesn’t mean it’s my job to defend problematic behavior.  Personally, I think it means the opposite.  Since I respect this person, I want them to do better.  ... Read More
Fawny Phillips is a paragon of the Hobby Lobby employee.  She crafts like no other and is using her skills to compensate for the corporation’s recently awarded freedom to enforce its religion on its employees.  In “Hobby Lobby Employee Tutorial #1: DIY Birth Control,” she reminds us that, even without insured birth control, we can still get great contraceptives without breaking the bank! Take, for instance, her crocheted condoms and ...
