The Feministing Five: Darkmatter

Janani Balasubramanian and Alok Vaid-Menon make up the incredible trans South Asian art and activist collaboration Darkmatter. Masterfully using humor, language, and rhythm, Darkmatter pushes their audience to reflect and take action on racial justice, anti-colonialism, and gender and sexuality politics.

New Favorite Comic: Manfeels Park

The brilliant new comic Manfeels Park, created by two women based in Scotland, pairs scenes from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice with actual anti-feminist, mansplaining comments on the interwebs.

As Sarah Seltzer notes at Salon, in a good encapsulation of the feminist response to sexist trolls, most of the comics involve Lizzy Bennet rolling her eyes at the inane comments of the men around her. In this one, Lizzy stifles a giggle at an argument about why women shouldn’t be ordained in the Mormon church…
