Part of the posting included advice to girls saying, “Ladies, always smile when you walk into a room, there is nothing a man wants less than a woman scowling because he thinks he is going to get s–t for something and has no idea what.”

Speaking of love…


Yes, Valentine’s Day is largely a commercialized, heteronormative and shallow holiday, but that doesn’t mean we can’t use it to give our readers some feminist love anyway! In short, we love you. Yes, more than Obama.
What are you doing to celebrate/subvert the holiday tomorrow?
