Marvel Cancels Artist's Upcoming Covers After Spider-Woman Butt Fiasco

The comic book industry is not particularly well-known for portraying women in a non- insanely-sexualized manner (you can't fight crime without a boob window, as we have all observed over the years). Even given that, a recent Spider-Woman cover somehow managed to slink under the world's already-low expectations with… » 9/23/14 5:45pm 20 minutes ago

Seven Valuable Pieces of Advice Just for Teenage Girls

There comes a day when you realise you cannot continue as the child you are now — fashioned in an unfashionable decade by your poor parents, and at a time when they were inadvisably discombobulated by Caesarian stitches, fundamental disagreements with their own parents, retrospectively laughable hair-cuts, and utter… » 9/23/14 5:30pm 35 minutes ago

Breaking: Three-Boobed Woman Straps on a Prosthesis of Lies

'I'm Shmacked' Kicks Its Rape Threat-Making Cofounder to the Curb

Some of you may recall the tragic tale of the tantrum of Arya Toufanian, the college party mogul who mere months ago acted foolish to a degree that should embarrass other people his age. Well, apparently his douchebaggery was too much for a site that glorifies the sort of college partying that would be grimly called a… » 9/23/14 4:45pm Today 4:45pm

Karl Lagerfeld Slapped His Cat's Name on Some Tacky Accessories

Karl Lagerfeld has borrowed on his cat Choupette's star power for a line of clothing and accessories coming this fall. Unfortunately, it is nothing I want. (As though I would pony up hard-earned American currency for cat-inspired designer items in the first place, when there are perfectly good Etsy stores.) (Yeah, I… » 9/23/14 4:30pm Today 4:30pm

4chan Swears They're Not Threatening to Release Emma Watson's Nudes

Did you hear the one about how 4chan users, enraged to the point of madness after Emma Watson's pro-feminism speech to the UN, have threatened to unleash the Harry Potter star's hacked nudes to the internet in retaliation? If you have, it's probably because you spent some amount of time yesterday or today on the… » 9/23/14 4:15pm Today 4:15pm

Don't Date Up, Don't Date Down. Date Equal.

The whole idea of dating down or up is horrific. For one, it's a terrible thing to say about someone else's relationship. You don't know what works! One woman's loser is another woman's godsend who just so happens to be going through a rough patch. And yet, it's an insightful corollary for how we measure men and women. » 9/23/14 3:30pm Today 3:30pm

The LA Times Covers Cornrows, the Hot New Trend for White Ladies

Friends, readers, ladyfolk, I believe we are being trolled. I believe we are being trolled by major newspapers and fashion magazines through a series of willfully ignorant and low-key racist articles where they attempt to completely erase black people from the very styles and trends that they created. » 9/23/14 2:30pm Today 2:30pm

Fraternities Announce Plan to Train Members to Help Stop Assault

For many people, the word "frat" conjures to mind several horrible images: racist theme parties, hellish bodily fluid-themed hazing activities, rapey events and emails that blatantly encourage sexual predation, etc. Eight college fraternities are hoping to change that: on Tuesday, they announced new training to combat… » 9/23/14 2:10pm Today 2:10pm

Makeup's Dirty Little Secret: Covering the Scars of Abuse

Two days before CoverGirl, the NFL's "official beauty partner," was forced to respond to the league's handling of the Ray Rice case, I helped three girls on the internet find concealer to cover up their bruises and self-harm scars. I often write about beauty and makeup, and sometimes women will email me and ask me in… » 9/23/14 1:10pm Today 1:10pm
