Comedian and feminist warrior Marcia Belsky has created a Tumblr page that will simultaneously make you laugh and make you very angry. None of us are blind to the still ever-present sexism depicted in film and television, but here Belsky gives us a direct visual. In fact, she gives us many, many visuals.

Not much to see here folks, just a portrait of Donald Trump made by many many different dicks formed into a glorious mosaic of peen.
Lest we think of Trump’s actual dick (sorry), these all seem to be random and anonymous ones. Perhaps taken from porn, or maybe some sent to women unsolicited. READ MORE »
Today is a great day in the history of ideas, because it is the first annual Trans Day of Screaming. A Tumblr user who describes herself as a “19 y/o tranny dyke ancom madhyamika guanyin devotee” (read: 19-year-old transgender lesbian, anarcho-communist, and Buddhist) posted on October 11 that the holiday would… READ MORE »
Taylor Swift thinks that Apple Music’s new streaming service at $9.99 a month – similar to a Netflix to music type of deal – is unfair to musicians.
Swift took to her Tumblr to write an “open letter” to Apple, admonishing them for this new business move. She thinks that the free trial… READ MORE »
Do you remember your teenage bedroom? I do. It was the jam. First of all, the stucco walls were painted what my mother considered a “hideous” shade of pinkish-coral, but I thought it was perfect. My walls were plastered with rock posters (Pearl Jam, obvi) and snapshots of me and my besties, the bottom drawer… READ MORE »
Those among us who have ever watched a dude spread his legs across the length of three seats on public transportation or spent so much as five seconds peeking at Men Taking Up Space On The Train (so, everyone) have spent many an afternoon pondering why it’s so difficult for some guys to sit in… READ MORE »
An Iranian bill restricting the availability of contraception and abortions in order to boost the country’s population is effectively going to turn Iranian women into “baby-making machines.” READ MORE »
In 2013, photographer Statia Grossman’s boyfriend left her, and he left his stuff in her apartment, too. Needing an outlet for her frustration with these constant reminders of their relationship, Grossman decided to marry her creative skills to her irritation and created the Shit You Left Behind Tumblr.
The Tumblr is a photo series… READ MORE »
Last Friday night I had to sift through my Other inbox on Facebook, and I found out that it had accumulated a few spectacularly short-sighted messages from anti-feminists. I tweeted about a few of them, and then I got this reply from the Twitter user @ToughLuvBun:
@RebeccaVBrink fuck him u r a feminism bae… READ MORE »
Actor Katrina Day has collected a series of sexist casting breakdowns for her not-haha-funny new Tumblr Some Lady Parts. Some of these notices read like Craigslist personal ads: “Seeking: Hot Blonde girl … Blonde hair …. classic hot girl.” Others aim for highbrow, but end up unrealistic and porn-y: “Seeking: Ultimate fantasy woman of a… READ MORE »
Some genius with a Tumblr account has astutely observed that all the models in the J.Crew catalogue look mildly drunk off their asses. Drunk J. Crew puts words in the mouths of those tipsy ladies, and the end result is perfect. It’s hard not to wonder why it took us all so many years of shopping… READ MORE »
The macabre Tumblr Jerry Seinfeld’s Skeleton uses a sandbox game called Garry’s Mod to recreate the greatest moments of “Seinfeld” – performed only by Jerry’s digital skeleton. The site’s creator, Bryce Maciel, goes through “Seinfeld” screenshots to make sure the skeletons are posed exactly like Jerry is onscreen. It’s unclear what makes this creepy site… READ MORE »
Do you eat lunch at your desk? I used to all the time, and still do occasionally. Sometimes, while answering emails and trying not to get bits of tuna salad all over my keyboard, I’d look down at my tupperware-strewn workspace, and the bag of vending machine peanut m&m’s I was saving for dessert, and… READ MORE »
The Internet has been abuzz lately with Tumblr blogs like I, Too, Am Harvard and I, Too, Am Oxford, which focused on the experiences of students of color amongst the mostly white populations at elite universities. Mostly the signs highlight ignorant remarks based on stereotypes students have been subjected to.
Here’s another Tumblr… READ MORE »
Two graduate students at the MIT Media Lab have created a research site that quantifies the emotional content of GIFs, and they hope that one day soon it will enable them to translate Shakespeare into GIF-speak. Travis Rich and Kevin Hu launched GIFGIF on March 3, and it’s a whole lot of fun. It’s so much fun, in fact,… READ MORE »
Seattle artist Cheyenne Randall is the mastermind behind my new favorite Tumblr, Shopped Tattoos, where he adorns legendary photos with amazingly realistic body art. My favorite images are the vintage photos (I seriously cannot stop staring at that Marilyn pic), but I must admit, the inked up and hipster-ized version of Will and… READ MORE »
