Bed, Bath & Beyond: Three Times the Fun? Or Just Sloppy Thirds?

 

 

From the reader mailbag: Curious to know what you and Bitch readers think about threesomes. I tried a threesome, and feelings got hurt just like I'd feared they might. I think you gotta be very sure there's no competition between the three, and everyone really is into it (probably obvious, but you know...)

She's certainly not alone in her curiosity. In my dating life...

BitchTapes: The Lady Business Edition

My internship at Bitch ended this week and just recently I got a grown-up job. In a perfect world, those two things would not be mutually exclusive, however I am super happy with the full-time gig, feel fortunate that during a recession I was able to land something with benefits and good pay and I’m still contributing to Bitch (like, right not for example) so it works out pretty well. In...

Douchebag Decree: Marketing Tucker Max

Whether it’s his offhand-way of dropping misogyny, his female-rating system that puts how-many-beers-til-she’s-hot-Yalies to shame, or his website that requires only the most minimal of minimal perusals to incite any feminist, it’s not difficult to dislike Tucker Max. He’s been utterly dissed by the Hater, called a “gender traitor” by Glamour’s Ryan Dodge, and...

Page Turner-Rave On: Tiny, aka Lisa Gray-Garcia, on Comfort Woman

“Rave On” is the Page Turner series that asks feminist writers, artists, musicians, activists, leaders, and scholars to talk about a book that completely rocked their world. Today we feature journalist and scholar Tiny, aka Lisa Gray-Garcia, on the novel Comfort Woman, by Nora Okja Keller.

I had heard about the brutal rape and enslavement of the “comfort women” from Korea in World War...

She Pop: Will Ellen DeGeneres Make “American Idol” A Gayer Place?

I don't really watch American Idol. I did tune in for an episode or two last season, when everyone on the planet was going nuts over the fact that Adam Lambert, a more-or-less openly gay dude and confirmed musical weirdo, had an actual chance at winning it. Unfortunately, the episode that I tuned in for was the one where he sang "Feeling Good," a song I have always really loved coming from...

Fake Reality TV Kidnapping, Real Consequences

Earlier this morning in Istanbul, Turkey nine women were rescued from a fake reality show set where they had been held captive for two months. The women each responded to an ad for a new season of the Turkish version of Big Brother, and signed contracts stipulating that they would live together in a villa and be forced to pay a hefty fine if they wanted to leave early.

Now, there are a...

Tube Tied: Let Peggy Be Peggy

I haven't been writing about Mad Men too much because I am trying to let it simmer for a while before I make any pronouncements of quality.  I will say that I'm still waiting for the good stuff, and that while I'm moderately optimistic that it's coming, this has, thus far, been a strange season for Mad Men's women.

 Take Peggy, for example.  You already know that I have a fondness for...

Lost in Space

After reading about Papercut Zine Library’s unfortunate loss of space due to the poor economy on both BoingBoing and Utne, I reached out to offer them the only space I can provide to assist them in their plight: the blogosphere.

From the Library of Bitch: Six Plays by Lillian Hellman

The following is the first installment of a semi-regular blog highlighting books in Bitch Media’s new Community Lending Library.

 

Lillian Hellman was a handful. She was the first female playwright on Broadway, one of the first women screenwriters in Hollywood, a controversial memoirist, a boozehound and a socialite, a Leftist sympathizer who gained fame and...
