[WORKING GIRL] Clare Kelly, Artist and Founder of Hesse Press

  Working Girl is our new segment in which we talk to women about their work.  Our first subject is Clare Kelly, who you might know from various other gushing pieces of writing I have done about her in the past six months. Clare is an artist who works in multiple different mediums, including dance, photography,...

[KARDASHIAN KORNER] Kourtney and Khloe Take The Hamptons Ep. 5 + 6 Mega Post

Kourtney and Khloe Take The Hamptons E.5 “Aftershocks”   I decided not to recap last week’s episode on account of the actually important and upsetting global issues floating around. This week, the world is no less dark and this column no less trivial but hey, a couple of people read this thing so let’s get...

  Kourtney and Khloe Take The Hamptons E.3 “Party Crashing” Previously On: Scott wants to go out and party in order to subdue dark thoughts of his recently deceased parents.

[KARDASHIAN KORNER] Kourtney and Khloe Take The Hamptons Ep 1. aka “Grab-a-gun-and-kill-yourself life?”

  Kourtney and Khloe Take The Hamptons E.1 “Trouble in Paradise”   Everything I know about the Hamptons, I learned from that beach episode of Girls (S3.E7). That is to say, YES, I watch Girls, and NO, I don’t know much about the Hamptons. I do know that people in the North Fork think it’s...
[BRA BURNING] Lana Del Rey's Take On Feminism Isn't Wrong

[BRA BURNING] Lana Del Rey’s Take On Feminism Isn’t Wrong

(image via The Fader) Here’s a fun new game the media has apparently decided it needs to play: interview a female celebrity (usually a pop star), demand to know her thoughts on feminism, then crucify her for her answer. Everyone gets one million clicks! Everyone wins! Except, of course, feminism itself. There are a lot...
[TRUE STORY] I'd Fuck Myself

[TRUE STORY] I’d Fuck Myself

A plot twist in a recent sci-fi film lead the protagonist into an unexpected collision with a clone of himself.  I couldn’t help but wonder, “What would I do if I met my own clone?”  And without hesitating, I answered in my head, “fuck myself.” I began noticing my own autosexuality sometime in high school. ...
[POP CULT] Jessie Kahnweiler Makes "Meet My Rapist," Is Our Hero

[POP CULT] Jessie Kahnweiler Makes “Meet My Rapist,” Is Our Hero

Sorry to be a downer; I know nobody wants the girl spouting out sexual abuse statistics showing up at the party. But here I am, fashionably late, rape stats in tow (every two minutes someone in the US is sexually assaulted), and in the spirit of compromise, I’ve brought a gift: it’s Jessie Kahnweiler’s “Meet...

Tonight, the whole girl gang is getting together for the very official launch of Agenda WMNS.

For your entertainment, there will be DJ sets by our fav Jennifer Clavin of...

[7 QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] W. Kamau Bell + Nato Green

As a young Jewish girl growing up in the Everglades, Chris Rock’s “Bigger & Blacker” obviously played a very significant role in my life. I’m a huge fan of his stand-up and some of his better movies (let’s just pretend Down To Earth never happened). So when I heard he was producing a new FX...
[PEN PAL] Fuck You, Cat Marnell

[PEN PAL] Fuck You, Cat Marnell

(I stole all of these images from the internets)   (Let me preface this by saying since I don’t know Cat Marnell at all, this is clearly more of a letter to the IDEA and MYTH of Cat Marnell, which is all anyone who is talking about her on the internet is acquainted with anyway)....

[LATE PASS] Seapunk’d

(Update: This original graphic is from seapunkgang.tumblr.com and I LOVE IT)(Disclaimer: I am old) I’ve been hearing the word “seapunk” thrown around a lot in the past few months, but never really bothered to look into it (bc I’m really fucking lazy). More about me: I don’t really get Pinterest (you want me to arrange...
