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.

Viral misogyny alert: “The Women of LA”

Ugh. The Nice Guys of OKCupid “DJ Lubel”–the guy behind the Murray Hill video from 2009–has released a new spoof music video, “The Women of LA,” complaining about how bitchy women won’t provide the sex he and his friends deserve. The clip is so awful for so many reasons that I don’t know how to levy a real critique, but here are some highlights:

The entire video is based on the premise that women owe men sex, and that if a guy isn’t getting laid, it’s obviously because of the ladies’ flaws, rather than his own. We’ve been over this before. Despite the DJ’s desperation to convince one woman to sleep with him, he expresses ...

Woman from Fox News’ accidental same-sex wedding picture speaks out

 

Yesterday the feminist internet collectively lol’d at Fox News when Jessica Valenti realized that the “wedding kiss” picture they’re using to accompany a piece about traditional gender roles is actually of a same sex couple.

Turns out, the two women whose love was mistakenly highlighted by the tirelessly homophobic news outlet are no strangers to the spotlight. Lela Mc Arthur and Stephanie Figarelle of Anchorage, Alaska won a contest last year to have their dream wedding in New York at the Empire State building, becoming the first same-sex couple to be married at the historic site (here’s a kickass video of them reciting their vows and defending their right to do so).  They are currently on their honeymoon (!) but Stephanie Fiagrelle gave us permission to ...
