They're just... everywhere. I don't even go to Cons or anything, and I still get this from regular ol' shop employees. Even something as simple and stupid as not being able to get help to find a game at the game store. I've had shop employees ask me if I was buying a game for my husband, or address the man shopping… » 8/29/14 7:48am Yesterday 7:48am

As the famous womanist and feminist author bell hooks has said, "Patriarchy has no gender."… » 8/28/14 12:39am Thursday 12:39am

This was my first thought as well. When I was younger, MTV was just banned altogether because my parents didn't find its content suitable for kids.

I don't know why they're complaining about the VMA's as though it… » 8/25/14 2:40pm Monday 2:40pm
