Sexist Beatdown: Beers of Freedom Edition

Say, ladies! Are you a fan of drinking? And NOT a fan of sexual assault? I can totally sympathize! It’s true that drinking alcoholic beverages – IN MODERATION – can be a delightful way to pass the time. And it’s also true that the world is a scary place. Never more scary than when, after […]

Sexist Beatdown: Superfreak Edition

Hello! And greetings! From glamorous central Ohio! Things move a little slower out here, in central Ohio. And by “things,” I mean, “me, because I am in my mom’s house watching Project Runway.” Oh, but also it is Sexist Beatdown day! So, you know, there’s that. So, you know what job the Superfreakonomics guys think […]

Oh, FUUUUUUUUUCK ME. I mean, um, hi! The delightful Amanda Hess of Washington City Paper’s The Sexist and I did another Sexist Beatdown chat this week! PERHAPS YOU HAVE HEARD ABOUT IT ALREADY????

Um, Just A Quick Interjection Here:

Are you reading my guest blog on Bitch? You should be! It is on pop music! You can read the archives – all in one delightfully convenient, commentable place – here! Although, seriously, you should just read their entire blog. It is Bitch, people! Bitch! Remember when I was like fourteen years old and I […]

SEXIST BEATDOWN: Hot Co-Ed Sexual Mediocrity Edition

You know, you guys: it has been kind of a depressing week. What with everything being all POLANSKI! POLANSKI! POLANSKI and all, and the vast amounts of time we have all been forced to spend contemplating (a) child rape, (b) people getting away with child rape, and (c) the existence of people who fervently want […]

This Week, In Reasonable Discourse: Why You Are A Lynch Mob of Art-Hating Glenn Beck Terrorist Hitlers

You know what’s really hard for me to write and/or think and/or read about? The Roman Polanski case. There have been many smart, praiseworthy explanations of why some dude should not get away with drugging and raping someone and subsequently fleeing the country. I agree with those discussions! Wholeheartedly! But every time I look at […]
