By now I’m sure we’re all remembering how beautiful the sight of an AC working away in a window is.  We’ve started to dread going outside into the heat and humidity.  Yep, summer’s well on its way; in fact, tomorrow is the summer solstice! At the Summer Solstice is the day when the sun reaches its northernmost point in the sky, meaning that we have daylight for longer— though the hours of sunlight depend on location, many ... Read More
In an age where feminism is often misunderstood and demonized as a movement for female “man haters,” this progressive high school teacher finally decided to take matters into her own hands and reeducate her students about the true meaning of the word. The students responded so positively to the course that 7 of the boys in her class decided to make a video (shown below), in which they proudly declare themselves feminists. Even though the course ... Read More

Sadly, Photoshop exaggeration is old news. “Nobody really looks like that”, you remind yourself every time a commercial flashes an image of an airbrushed-to-“perfection” model.  Although, do we as individuals really have any power to change the marketing industry standard?  One father says “yes." Seth Matlins, a former chief marketing officer, has seen his fair share of computer-altered waistlines and falsely whitened skin. ... Read More
Yesterday I ran away with the circus.  Let me rephrase that.  Yesterday I left work a little early to take the 20 minute PATH Train ride to Aerial Acrobat Entertainment in Jersey City.  There, I took an hour-long Lyra & Trapeze class, taught by Guinevere DiPiazza.  I’ll admit that I was a little nervous—I can’t remember the last time I attempted anything that requires upper body strength (unless typing on a computer counts ...

Once upon a time, beauty companies were telling women that their bodies weren't smooth enough, their faces clear enough, and their hair, shiny enough. However, after various body-positive movements in addition to all the feminist scholars critiquing the issue, companies have attempted to alter the explicit ways in which they enforce constant body surveillance. Now more recently, we are seeing women's beauty advertisements "praise" empowerment over body image. Take ... Read More

Darek Isaacs claims to have thought long and hard about evolutionary theory.  But then again, he also thinks that it excuses rape, a belief that pretty clearly illustrates that he should think a little harder. Isaacs, a creationist, is clearly trying legitimize his own studies of evolution when he states in an episode of “Creation Today” that he has critically examined the work of Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, E.O. Wilson, and ... Read More
Oh Lizzy, I couldn’t agree more. We women have been gracing the world with our comedic talents for far too long. It’s time for the boys, with their biologically inferior jokes, to share a little of the glory. Check out her interview on Comedy Bang! Bang! about how the comedy world should be a little more equal for the genders:  Man, nothing I love more than some good satire.   Image via ... Read More
