When we heard that adorable, wise-beyond-her-years teen fashion blogger Tavi met one of our riot grrl heroines, Kathleen Hanna (from Bikini Kill and Le Tigre), we were both gleeful and jealous. But then when we found out that Kathleen gifted Tavi with a totally awesome knit sweater with “FEMINIST” emblazoned across the front, our universe kind of exploded. While the rest of you might not ever get such a kick-ass gift from Hanna herself, you can still gift yourself and your fellow pro-lady power friends with some cool feminist fashions. Etsy is overflowing with feminist-inspired jewelry and apparel and while much of it is a little too vaginal for our tastes, we did find 10 awesome items that scream “I Am Woman, Hear Me Roar!”

Kiernan Shipka, aka Sally Draper of “Mad Men,” is apparently really, really well spoken for a 10-year-old girl. When asked whether she would act like Sally if her parents were like Betty and Don, she said:

“I think Sally’s actually much better than I would be, given her situation. Sally is really, really reserved. Divorce can be terribly stressful and confusing.

Adam Levine Is Totally Sure That Jake Gyllenhaal Is Not Gay

“Will everyone stop thinking that dude is gay? Seriously guys. How immature is it of the media to perceive this guy — it has to be because of ‘Brokeback,’ right? I’ve known this dude forever. He’s one of my oldest friends, and it’s very weird that they have this — it’s very immature and infantile the way they treat his whole situation. If him hanging out with his bros means he’s gay, it’s like further perpetuating that weird homophobia that exists in our culture, which is just stupid. So, yeah, he’s my buddy. I f**kin’ love the guy.”
