The Feministing Five: Stuff Mom Never Told You

 While at a friend’s house one afternoon, I overheard a friend listening to a really fantastic podcast. And I know what you’re thinking. “Not another one of those white dude hosts that tries hard to sound not overly geeky yet kinda cool but actually he’s copying that first dude with the glasses.”

This one featured the voices of two women exploring 19th century feminist history with a special emphasis on politics and race. Unlike most lectures you might find in college, the podcast was engaging, accessible, and impeccably researched. I posted up in the kitchen until its end and then I asked what was the name of the podcast. She said, “Stuff Your Mom ...

New Favorite Tumblr: Saving Room For Cats

It turns out we’ve been wrong. The well-documented phenomenon of men taking up too much space on the train as if to air out a particularly large set of balls that has enraged women since time immemorial (or at least since the invention of public transit) is not, in fact, about a gendered sense of entitlement to fill up public space or a performance of masculinity.

There is actually a perfectly reasonable explanation: they’re just saving room for cats. Very large cats.

On behalf of feminists everywhere, our sincerest apologies to all sprawling men and their furry friends.

More after the jump.

New Favorite Meme: Feminist Frank

While he can’t quite top Feminist Ryan Gosling IMHO, (I mean, really, who could?) Feminist Frank is pretty great.

Lesson learned: Never judge a bro until he’s finished his opening line.

Quick Hit: How misandrist are you?

It’s basically required around these parts to wear lipstick made of the blood of “the mens” while cackling in our witch coven. Take this helpful quiz at Buzzfeed to find out if you’re misandrist enough to hang with us.

Interview with a creator of my new favorite thing on Facebook: #FeministBitStrips

Who said feminists have no humor? While some have lamented the takeover of Bitstrips on their Facebook newsfeeds, I found myself literally laughing out loud to a series of Bitstrip comics with a feminist twist my friend was posting. I asked one of the co-creators, Everyday Feminism contributor and blogger at Womanisms Patricia Valoy, about #FeministBitStrips:

This feminist makeup tutorial parody is pitch- perfect

In case you haven’t seen this making its way around the internet, this feminist makeup tutorial parody is pitch perfect. Featuring gems such as “Next we’re going to use a light foundation. Make sure you give every part of your face a fair and equal amount of representation, unlike the government and prime time television.”

I am unable to locate one so please post a transcript in the comments.

Twelve comical responses to homophobic protest signs

Within moments or days, the Supreme Court will rule on DOMA (the Defense of Marriage Act), which states that “the word ‘marriage’ means only a legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife, and the word ‘spouse’ refers only to a person of the opposite sex who is a husband or a wife.’’

And it’s unclear how they will decide. We’ve also seen the fight for marriage equality fought in the streets, with protest signs as weapons. But this battle is as murky as the Supreme Court’s decision. It is really hard to tell which side of the debate has the better signs. Which side is cleverer?

Which side makes more spelling mistakes? To answer these questions, ...

Quick Hit: Terrific rape culture cartoons thanks to students at York University

I’m not a big fan of rape jokes, but bring on the jokes about rape culture!  The students at York University in Canada have created some awesome rape culture cartoons starring some of our favorite super heroes.  The comics truly get to the heart of how flippin’ ridiculous rape culture is and how those who perpetuate it need to quit it and become part of the solution.
