On 30 Minutes with Christina Angela

Wish I'd followed my first impulse and stopped reading at "grotesquely masculine".

On How to Mount a TV When You Have No Boyfriend, No Prospects, and Lack the Shamelessness Required to Ask for Help

Jesus, hairpin, I've only got maybe one more of these awful, awful "women are so useless, right?" articles left in me and I'm jumping ship for good from this place.

On Your Breakfast Has Been Lying to You

Oh great now it's fun "assume we all want to lose weight" time on the hairpin.

On When a Man Writes a Woman

@Briony Fields Yeah, I was basically coming down here to go "Her?"

On Are You Part of the 16% of People Who Can't Look at This Without Screaming?

@laurel CRIPES I FORGOT ABOUT IT. Don't google image trypophobia. I got fooled into it once.

On I Do Care. I Don’t Love It.

What a repulsive article. It's really unpleasant to know that I can go on the hairpin and read self-declarations of misogyny (along with an article chock full of it).

On "I don’t want her to wear her good nature like a gemstone, her body like an ornament"

@stuffisthings I mean, it's also a little silly to think that all of this is directly parent-traceable. Like the media they consume and the potentially more gender-role encouraging teachers and parents of friends aren't impacting those desires and choices.

On Explanations
