We all know that existing precautionary laws will not be sufficient in preventing workplace harassment and/or discrimination for various oppressed groups. At least, we should all know that. I thought we all knew that. Apparently not, though, because straight folks are crashing job fairs designed specifically for LGBTQ people. That’s right, some straight people are thwarting efforts to end workplace discrimination and it is 100% deliberate. The job fair ... Read More
Big Eyes, as many of you may know, is the newest Tim Burton film that is slated to premiere sometime this coming December, and in anticipation of the film, new photos of Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz have just been released. The film follows the large-eyed, harlequin doll art of Margaret Keane (Adams) that took the 60s by storm (and heavily influenced Burton) and its subsequent exploitation by her husband, Walter (Waltz).    The details surrounding ...

Good news is rolling in on the abortion front from, of all places, Birmingham, Alabama!  On Monday, a federal judge ruled that a new Alabama law—which would restrict doctors who perform abortions and force several women’s clinics to shut down—placed unconstitutional restrictions on a woman’s right to choose.  The law, which would require all doctors who perform abortions in Alabama to have what are called “admitting ...

What do you think a mix of a classically trained ex-opera singer, politically charged lyrics and dark rock sounds like? Probably not Emily Danger, but I can assure you, all of the ingredients are there and then some. This incredible Brooklyn-based band takes “dark cabaret rock” – a genre that you will want to spread like wildfire – to lengths you didn’t think were possible. I chatted with the amazing Emily Danger herself, and I sat in ... Read More
Although we’re fresh off the new Beyoncé-Nicki collaboration that has quite literally rocked the internet, we may have another duo of fire starters partnering up soon.   A few days ago, Miley Cyrus turned her Instagram into a one day, mini-shrine to one of music’s most prevalent and influential feminists: the one, the only Kathleen Hanna. She threw out a couple pro-Hanna comments, like “coolest ever” and “f*** ... Read More
White people everywhere are tired of hearing about “cultural appropriation.” So what if my favorite pop star Katy Perry is wearing cornrows in her new video?! The only thing that is keeping racism alive is people of color talking about racism! Well, I’m here to debunk all of the whitesplained myths about cultural appropriation, and to tell you why it is indeed racist for Katy Perry to dress up as a geisha or to have large butt mummies dancing ...

  I like to think of Mary Roach as Queen of All Things Awkward.  Her publications include Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers, in which she addressed practicing cosmetic surgery on cadavers, crucifixion experiments and human head transplant.  She also wrote the book Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal, whose chapters included “Big Gulp: How to survive being swallowed alive” and “Stuffed: The science of eating yourself ...

None of us lady folk really enjoy the pressure the media and cultural norms heap on us to look and act a certain way; however, despite our distaste for societal beauty standards, many of us get fully immersed trying to keep up with the pack. That’s why the Stop the Beauty Madness campaign is so refreshing, and what makes its rise in popularity so exciting.  Robin Rice created the campaign to challenge beauty norms and give viewers the sense that ...

Aaron Freeman, best known for his role as one of Ween's founding members, expands on his approach to collaging together different styles of pop with his debut solo release as FREEMAN. These twelve tracks come together as a mesmerizing kaleidoscope of psychedelia, glam rock, country, and folk. "Covert Discretion," kicks off the record with a story about blacking out during a post-show hotel party sung over Freeman's delicate folk instrumentation. His gorgeous ... Read More
Be still my gender non-conforming heart.  We’ve recruited another human capable of flawlessly representing any and all genders to our secret cult.  JK, there’s no cult.  But Ruby Rose is totally queer, though, no JK about that. Rose began her career as a model for Girlfriend magazine, moving on to MTV VJ-ing in 2008 after beating out 2000 other hopefuls for the spot.  This opened the floodgates for Rose’s fame.  She has ...
