This Post may be contain content that is triggering to survivors of sexual assault.  Whether you’re into the world of comics or not, you know that it’s not a friendly world for women. Whether it’s the impossibly buxom women characters or the (mostly male) die-hard fan base, it’s hard to be a lady and like comics. Janelle Asselin, a former employee of DC Comics and total comic fangirl, recently wrote a controversial article for the ... Read More
I’m not going to lie, I adore Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone: the on screen and off screen couple that star in The Amazing Spiderman rebooted franchise. I think they’re collectively adorable and I want to shrink them down and keep them in my pocket for when I’m sad. However, after a small sexist comment slipped out of Garfield’s dreamy lips during a Q&A interview to promote the upcoming film The Amazing Spiderman 2, I had a moment ... Read More
I’m a huge fan of girly feminist embroidery projects. I even make some myself. That’s why when I stumbled upon Mo Morgan’s sassy but honest embroideries, I absolutely fell in love.  I have a soft spot for embroidery activism. Maybe it’s the juxtaposition between the quaint, dainty art-form (with its stitched-in associations to the domestic housewife) and the bloodthirsty history of the women’s movement. The rich history behind ... Read More
If you haven’t heard of Cat Cafés, let me just let you in on this little bit of joy right now; it's a café, wait for it, where you get to hang with cats.  I KNOW RIGHT?! If you’re thinking, “Where have these been all my life?” or "Now I can stop trying to pet the strays on my street" you are definitely not alone. Cat Cafés started in Taiwan in the late 90's and became famous in Japan circa 2004. This unique ... Read More
I just watched 3 minutes of Ilana Glazer rolling around a floor in bubble wrap and then smashing her face into a cake. I know you are probably thinking, "Why the hell would you watch that?" Well personally I will watch anything Glazer does, as a huge fan of her Comedy Central show Broad City. The show itself started off as a web series created by Glazer and co-star Abbi Jacobson about two girls living a hysterically real and yet completely absurd life in Brooklyn. ... Read More
Laurence Philomene describes her photos as a “pre-teen sleepover gone wrong,” but I still kind of wish I went to this party. The 20-year-old freelance photographer from Montreal explores gender and femininity in many of her groups of photographs, but “Sugar High” takes the cake! The photographer was also inspired by fine artist Wolfgang Tillmans, particularly this quote: "As soon as you represent something, it’s always a mediated, ... Read More
Get ready for it; we’re about to see a bunch of white males scrambling for the Late Show spot now that David Letterman has announced his retirement. The current top contenders include Jon Stewart, Jay Leno, Craig Ferguson, and Conan O’Brien. *yawn* Men have traditionally hosted late night television because of the outdated gendered blocking of Television viewing times. Daytime television has no shortage of female hosts because daytime TV's assumed ... Read More
Ever pry your eye open with one hand, sweep mascara on with the other, and wonder if other girls look the same in the morning? Photographer Nooran Matties reveals everything you have ever wondered about foreign beauty routines. Rituals - a photo series featured in Inconnu Mag's Fog issue- captures various young women in their daily prepping and priming. The photos pull back the curtain on “effortless” looks, and capture the delicate ... Read More
I’m not exaggerating when I say that Kate Leth is everything I want to be. I’m not the only one who sees her this way, tons of little girls (and boys too!) are calling her a hero after the release of her latest graphic novel, Adventure Time: Seeing Red.  I’ve been following Kate Leth since I first discovered her web comic, Kate or Die! Since then, I’ve watched her blossom into an ass-kicking, feminist comic book artist who's ...

Being a Pagan in 2014 is weird. I can’t imagine where I’d be without the fantastic witchy bloggers I follow or the Etsy accounts that keep me in stock with my spells and crystals.  I won’t lie, I’m new to being a witch – but part of what I love about Paganism and Wicca is the rich history behind these beliefs.  Recently, LIFE Magazine re-published what they've called a “strikingly weird feature” about ...
