Calm Down, Angry Men, It'll All Be Okay, Says Comedian Chris Gethard

Chris Gethard (Broad City, Conan, The Office) made a charming little video rant taking on one of the internet's sweatiest armpits: the bitter, woman-hating, misplaced rage factory known as the "Manosphere."

J.K. Rowling Taken to Task for Fetishizing Asian Women in Harry Potter

Poet Rachel Rostad has zeroed in on some inconvenient truths for Harry Potter fans, namely that J.K. Rowling managed to create a fantastical universe crammed full of exotic, magical creatures while still marginalizing and fetishizing people of color.
