Did you know that sexism was over? Me neither. Because it’s not. Like not even remotely. When we first saw the Interwebz telling us that 56% of men think sexism is over (according to a recent survey by Pew) we laughed so ...

Did You Know That Sexism Was Over?

Did you know that sexism was over? Me neither. Because it’s not. Like not even remotely. When we first saw the Interwebz telling us that 56% of men think sexism is over (according to a recent survey by Pew) we laughed so hard that wine came out of our noses. This had to be a [&hellip

My dad used to like to pretend bad things just didn’t happen. When asked about family feuds or crises d’jour he’d switch topics, ignore the issue, tell me to pray for him, or make up an innocuous answer. On the other hand, my mom would give bizarre guidance when it wasn’t needed—like that using tampons [&hellip

Questioning the Sisterhood of the Traveling Misogynist

Many months ago I stopped reacting to every terrible thing that came out of Donald Trump’s mouth. It was an act of self-preservation otherwise I would have had to stop working, sleeping, and even breathing. Every time we turn around he is saying something new and terrible. Whether it’s mocking a disabled reporter, attacking the [&hell

Psych! I Found Men Irrelevant Way Before Ghostbusters

I Just Watched Ghostbusters and I Now Find Men Irrelevant

This past weekend I went to see Ghostbusters with three other ball-busting women and afterward we were so enraged at the yoke of oppressive misogyny and sexism holding us back that we kneed every man we saw in the balls and set a bunch of dumpsters on fire. Okay, it wasn’t that dramatic. We really [&hellip

International House of Sexist Asshats

It’s A Small Sexist World After All

by
The International Sisterhood of the Traveling Pantsuit convened today to reflect upon how the world still revolves around sexist asshats. On the one hand, it gives us a feeling of solidarity with our slandered and stultified sisters because we all deal with the fact that the betesticled among us truly do run this joint. On [&hellip

For the longest time we complained about how far too few ‘Muricans bothered to vote and now here we are, staring into the abyss waiting for the sweet darkness to overtake us and wishing most of the people who schlepped their lardasses out of their recliners had just stayed home to watch reruns of The [&hellip

What do you think was the theme for this year’s International Women’s Day? Under the Sea? Ladies drink free? No, it was #PledgeForParity. That may sound less exciting than the standard prom theme but since women won’t achieve political or economic parity for something like 117 goddam years I’m literally seeing red from my pending

Is abortion the only issue where both sides of the argument claim to be pro? With capital punishment, you're pro or anti. Gun control? Pro or anti. Same-sex marriage? Pro or anti. But when it comes to abortion, you’re ...

Is abortion the only issue where both sides of the argument claim to be pro? With capital punishment, you’re pro or anti. Gun control? Pro or anti. Same-sex marriage? Pro or anti. But when it comes to abortion, you’re pro-choice or pro-life. It’s easy to see why both sides pick those terms — it’s easier [&hellip

Buckle up, readers. It’s Women’s History Month and my rage-o-meter is at dangerously unsafe levels. March is when the country, or rather a handful of people, pause to note the many contributions of women to ‘Murica while the rest of the country just irritates the bejeezus out of me.
