    Waiting for someone to explain that the Old Testament doesn't count anymore.....because Jesus.

  • Liv Tokyo

    Notice how the Old Testament doesn't count until you reference LGBT rights too. But then they quote Leviticus.

you either give Cosby the benefit of the doubt, or you give it to the 15 women telling the same awful story.

Don Lemon’s 14-second apology: Sorry for asking rape victim why she didn’t bite off Bill Cosby’s dick

Are you surprised? Although there are more women in Congress than ever before in history, House Republicans filled every one of their open committee chair spots with men.

I hate these pins. Sure Marilyn had a fuller figure. But Audrey Hepburn and Vera-Ellen also existed in all their waifishness. Just like Kat Dennings and Ellen Page are both attractive and successful. Seriously, knock it the fuck off. People come on variety.

  • She loves me not...

    I'm plus size and yes, I've seen some really shitty attitudes towards fat women in my day by men and women and all forms of the media. Yet it really does nothing positive to resort to skinny shaming.

    You should never need to tear someone else down in order to build yourself up.

  • Rachel Leonhardt

    I agree that it's counter-productive to build yourself up by putting others down, but I also recognize why some women gravitate towards these pins. Telling themselves that "bigger is better" is just a way to cope with the million other voices saying "you are not good enough".

  • Dakota Henson

    All they're doing when they say that is sending the exact same message to skinny girls.

  • Kara Williamson

    All these comments speak sense. It's the reason I don't like that 'all about the base' song. It's tearing others down in order to build others up & is counter productive

It’s the difference between “I’ll love my body after I”, or “I love my body enough to change it” and “I love my body. Oh and I’ll do this too.” It’s subtle, but it’s important.

Republicans...

On Thursday, November 20, the first ever live-streamed abortion speak out will feature a diverse group of 100 women who will discuss their personal experiences with abortion and abortion care.

Edinburgh Uni fraternity spoke of ‘raping trip’ - Edinburgh Evening News

No, Women Aren't As Likely To Commit Violence As Men - Not only is there no data that supports such a claim - a common cry in online comments sections - but the data that we do have proves the exact opposite.

Delete your Uber account if you have one. What a horribly misogynistic company. As history has shown, if we wait for those in power in Silicon Valley to do something, we might wait forever

  • Madison Burke

    I thought uber was sketchy sounding from the very first time I heard about it! I have no problems not using their service now!

Why is Indonesia subjecting female police applicants to virginity tests? News of the virginity requirement has unleashed a backlash from protestors who call the tests degrading, discriminatory, traumatizing, and humiliating. Why aren't men subjected to virginity tests??

  • Laura Beth

    That is really terrible. I couldn't help but notice this though: "HRW’s investigation into the virginity tests follows a recruitment drive by the national police force to hire 50 percent more females by December in order to boost the proportion of female officers to 5 percent of the 400,000-member force." 5%. Really?? How about 50%!

  • marie fischer

    I didn't see anywhere in the article where the male applicants were required to undergo virginity tests as well....naturally.

  • marie fischer

    Like you said, She. But, then again, it's an outdated religious custom (women = virgins = purity), as usual.

Two Women Invented A Hands-Free Vibrator For Gender Equality In The Bedroom

  • Sarah Townsend

    I thought it looked like it might fall out. I haven't seen any hands free vibrators that don't require the user the basically strap it around their waist.

  • Maija

    I found this bit annoying: "up to 70 percent of women need clitoral stimulation to orgasm. But Dame Products suggests that providing such stimulation during sex “is often awkward, tiring, or disruptive to one or both partners.”" <- taking care that a woman enjoys sex is not "disruptive".

  • She loves me not...

    @Sarah Townsend , me too, and even those don't really stay in place either.

  • Sarah Townsend

    Well I guess I can't put my Hitachi away just yet... not saying that I want to it's just that it kind of gets in the way during sex.

Separatist, Militant, Female Power! In the Ukraine, a country where females are victims of sexual trafficking and gender oppression, a new tribe of empowered women is emerging. Calling themselves the “Asgarda”, the women seek complete autonomy from men. Residing in the Carpathian Mountains, the tribe is comprised of 150 women of varying ages, primarily students, led by 30 year-old Katerina Tarnouska. This reminds me of the "Amazon women"
