On this creepy, crawly, full-mooned, Friday the 13th, a photo of American Horror Story star Sarah Paulson's new character for highly anticipated season 4 was leaked. In the upcoming season, entitled Freak Show, Paulson will be playing two-headed conjoined twins, Bette and Dot alongside a cast of other actors returning from the previous seasons. When I first heard about American Horror Story, I was dubious about its representations of sexism, ...

The National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health (NLIRH) released a public statement earlier this week on the inclusion of a provision (the Aderholt Amendment) in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Appropriations Act. The act, which passed by a vote of 29-18 in the U.S. House Appropriations Committee, specifically targets women in detention by attacking their right to reproductive health care. The NLIRH along with 65 other national, state, and local ... Read More
Last month, Mother Jones released a story detailing the rights-infringing working conditions of many NFL Cheerleading teams,  such as the Cincinnati Bengals and Oakland Raiders. Now, Mother Jones has come out with a new story about the ice girls on the Nation Hockey League’s rinks - and it is no surprise that conditions on the ice are no better there than they are on the field. The ice girls interviewed were primarily from Philadelphia Flyers and the Los ... Read More
I have a confession, everyone! I’ve joined the online dating community and so far, it’s been a mothereffing rollercoaster. Before I begin, if any of the guys have Googled me and found this, for the sake of our potential future: stop reading now. Kidding (not really, though). So, I joined a popular, free website a couple months ago because I was sick of meeting no one interesting and liked the idea of window shopping for men in the comfort of my home. ... Read More
    If you had peeked into my home at 8 pm last Sunday night, you would have found my family and me sprawled out on our designated sides of the couch, eagerly anticipating what has developed into our favorite award show - the Tonys. Unlike the Oscars or the Grammies, which I usually glance at haphazardly while eating dinner to indulge my shameless fascination with Hollywood couture, the Tony Awards always require my full attention. The 3 hour long ... Read More
It is still of the upmost belief that in child custody battles, women have an advantage. In fact, it is a popular argument by many Men’s Rights Activists that men are “oppressed” because of this “fact.” As usual, these MRAs have no warrants to their claims. Unfortunately, more than just MRAs buy into this particular belief. Many women also believe that child custody cases favor them – meaning they believe that women more often ... Read More
In 2013 a student at Swarthmore college “was in her room with a guy with whom she’d been hooking up for three months… They’d now decided — mutually, she thought — just to be friends. When he ended up falling asleep on her bed, she changed into pajamas and climbed in next to him. Soon, he was putting his arm around her and taking off her clothes.”  She states that “‘I basically said, “No, I don’t want to have sex with you.” And then he ... Read More
Are you a lady? Do you love to go out drinking, but hate always ending your nights passed out on the bar table with vomit in your hair, since you’re just too darned stupid to regulate your own alcohol consumption? (Don’t worry no one blames you, you’re just a woman, you don’t know any better!) Do you wish that there was some way for you to walk out of the bar at a reasonable hour, with your dignity intact and your dress unscathed, without ... Read More

Perfect Pussy’s Meredith Graves doesn’t take sexist antics quietly. This Syracuse hardcore band confronted some unexpected sexism at a recent show in Dallas, Texas while performing with several other female bands, including Potty Mouth, an all girl punk outfit. Surprisingly, or perhaps not, misogyny permeates even the hardcore sector of the music world.  Case in point, the concert promoters produced a flyer for the show that prominently ... Read More
