Being Basic

  Over at Man Repeller, Julia Gray has written a thoughtful and considered piece about the nature of being “basic” in 2019, aptly titled, “What Does Being Basic Look Like In 2019?”     I’ve very much come full circle on “Basic Bitches.” Which, I guess, is to say, I’ve[…]

Time To Feed The Gendered Language Around Periods To The Sharks

    Aunt Flo. Lady Time. Crimson Tide. That last one is a football team, but the other two are euphemisms for PERIODS! Menstruation! And this week, a lot of blood was shed over the way we talk about periods.   Help us evolve language around gender and menstrual health.[…]

Don’t Get Pissed, But Your “Fearless Girl” Is Bullshit

  I know I know, you’re already angry at my title — but what is being “fearless” if not standing up for what’s right, even if it’s unpopular? I love you all, I love Intersectional Feminism, and that is why I cannot stand by Fearless Girl.   I know you’re[…]

Damn, Am I Glad I Went To The #WomensMarchNYC

Ok, so I didn’t go enthusiastically. Not at first. My fear and distrust of the general public has increased 1000% after the election. I know that My Liberal Bubble is a relatively safe and progressive place to live, but since November 9th, I can’t help but eye every cis white[…]

Fuck Off w/ “Fuckboy”

  I know we all meant well, and I know that there’s a lot to unpack, but can I please, please ask that we leave the term “fuckboy” in 2016. Seriously. Please. 1. First of all, as Inigo Montoya would say, “You keep using that word. I do not think[…]

New Year’s Resolutions? Well, Why Not.

Retire the phrase “tfw.” It was funny for a while, but now I’ve got that feeling that it’s overplayed. Stop snarking on popular things — because sometimes popular things are popular because they’re good — like rosé, and Beyoncé (NOTE: I recognize that not all popular & good things have “é” in[…]
