  I've never had to resist the urge to punch someone in the face as much as I did this past weekend.    Let me give you some context. I work as a bartender at one of New York's biggest concert venues. 99% of the time, it's totally awesome. I get to see cool shows for free, hang out with some of the most interesting characters I've ever had the pleasure to work with and walk out in the wee hours of the morning with cash in my pocket. It's definitely ... Read More
  This week, I started a new job that requires me to engage with the public. Thankfully, it does not entail holding a sign for, “the best New York Comedy Show” or dressing up as Elmo in times square. Instead, I am (wo)manning the Bryant Park art cart, which is a cart parked in front of the New York Public Library full of free art supplies for the public to use. Anyone can stop by to try out an assortment of high- quality drawing/ arts and ... Read More
Suzanne Morissette proves that on her wedding day, she is not just a pretty porcelain doll exclusively to be looked at, toasted to, and fawned over. Her lucky husband is clearly sticking with Morissette for life not only because she's a hottie patattie, but because she has major chops!He's standing just off to the side in this video, actually, playing in the band. I hope he got to enjoy his special day as well, but as the cliché goes, it's all about ... Read More
“Hello? Yes, it is me, bell hooks. Yes, I am here to tell you to cut that white supremacist capitalist patriarchy shit out. Uh huh, thanks, okay buhbye.” It may not be as good as the lady herself, but yes, that is pretty much what is going on here. This amazing new Tumblr page provides those who love a good ol’ bell hooks hoot every once in a while with pure gold; The Feminist Phone Intervention is a godsend for anyone and everyone ...

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
