Bond Girl Power

While there's a lot a feminist critique of Quantum of Solace, the new James Bond flick, could cover, such as the other-ing of the voiceless "ethnic" communities/Bond's sense of entitlement to their culture and resources, Judy Dench's role as M, or the current, very real political turbulence in Bolivia (FYI?

Is "fake" the new "bitchy"?

Welcome, guest bloggers!

I'm really excited to announce that starting this very week we'll be hosting a rotating crew of guest bloggers. I'd like to introduce and welcome our first two:

Sexy kids' toys go to the dogs.

Your Turn

Hey there, Interwebs. So, there was some pretty kooky stuff that went on this week when it comes to feminist issues and pop culture. And, since a lot of the words in that last sentence can also be found on the cover of our magazine, how could we not bring these things up in a way that is interactive, thoughtful, and an excellent way to goof off on the Internet instead of working? That'...

Exit, Stage Right

So many douchebags, so little time. The air was thick with them this week: That guy who owns American Apparel and who holds his staff meetings in the nude; Joe the Plumber and his dumb-ass new country music contract; George W. Bush and his stupid face.
