My feminist organization hands out condoms (just the regular Durex ones) all the time on campus and one time we ran out and had to send someone on a condom run to get more.  Well, in the meantime some generous soul saw our predicament and whipped 12 Magnums out of his backpack and donated it to our cause.  (Why did he have 12 Magnums in his backpack on Monday morning on campus at 10am?  No one will ever know but it gives a new meaning to being ...

I do love me some Will Forte and I'm feeling his feminizle vibes on this "Good Job Women' skit from last weekends Saturday Night Live. I think he's probably pretty excited about being included in our "Men we Love" issue! (that's at the printer right now). I know I am. Here's his tribute to women's herstory month. [video: ...

According to Leslie Unger, spokesperson for the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences: ''Every year it's an unfortunate reality that we can't include everybody.'' Oh. So they couldn’t extend the montage by what would have probably ... Read More

San Francisco musician Rykarda Parasol describes her music as rock noir, a sound that evokes film noir mixed with such heavies as the Velvet Underground, Nico, and Leonard Cohen. Younger folks might draw Nick Cave, PJ Harvey, and Mark Lanegan comparisons, as Parasol employs a similarly low vocal range to deliver her torrid tales, but she creates her own otherworldly atmosphere by accompanying herself on guitar and piano. On “My Spirit Lives in ... Read More

Should Oscar Be Neutered?

BY mikki in Eat Me |

In today's New York Times, Kim Elsesser makes the case that the Academy Awards should get over their damn selves and blend all of the acting categories so there is no longer a "Best Actress" and a "Best Actor." It's not a new idea--feminists have been suggesting it for decades. But my feeling is: Who cares? I just can't get worked up about this issue when I think about the fact that there have only been thirty-five women in the Senate. Ever. Where's the NYT ... Read More

If you grew up reading Sassy magazine, you know who Blake Nelson is—his debut novel, Girl, about a teenager exploring the Seattle rock scene (sound '90s?) was excerpted in three successive issues, and later made into a movie. But you may not know that Nelson has written many more books, exploring issues of sexuality, morality, and interpersonal relationships with a sensitivity and astuteness that shows more respect for his YA audience than many adult fiction ...
