Golden Globe-winning actress Jessica Chastain is well-known as one of the most vocal women in Hollywood when it comes to demanding equity, insisting that she be paid on par with her male co-stars. As she told Newsweek in 2017:
The cover of Thursday’s edition of Los Angeles Times magazine The Envelope delivered six white actresses with the tagline “A Shift in Focus: Actresses call for change in the way many stories are told.” Reeeeealllly?? Really.
For those of you who have spent the past week wondering why Jezebel has not yet published a review of the long-awaited PC/console game No Man’s Sky, allow us to explain ourselves: we find the name of this “first person space travel” game to be distasteful, offensive, and shamelessly anti-feminist.

Today in tragic news: another man has been hoodwinked by his malicious wife into participating in what some might call Adult Domestic Life.
Relationships can feel pretty equal until a baby shows up, when suddenly even the most progressive couples are waylaid by the tyrannical demands of child-rearing. Women become baby-feeding machines, and men do what they can—some more than others. At least one such dude has admitted he was not, in fact, doing all he…
Other older marrieds sometimes ask me the secret to having a husband who does easily half, arguably more, of the childrearing and cleaning/cooking in our house. The secret is I married someone who is 33 years old. Good news for people like me: Millennial dudes are the most engaged, involved fathers in history. Bad…
Poor, poor Don Stair. All this Little Rock resident wanted was to live in a world where the media doesn’t cater to the views of one tiny and perverted sexual minority.

If you haven’t yet seen the news, it’s a great day for the gay community and an awful one for homophobes: the Supreme Court of the United Stated legalized gay marriage in all of the land! In honor of the ruling, here are some of the fantastic and touching reactions of Americans on the internet.
