My Breakup with ModCloth

Let’s be honest. It can be really tacky to air your relationship laundry out in public. But since my ex has been talking a lot, I needed to say my peace.

RIP Winston. The poster pup passed away recently <3

I have to say, I really didn’t see this day coming. We start off relationships with the best of intentions, and (…)

Feel Beautiful, You’re Allowed!

Really, this post is SEVERAL years in the making. I’ve thought about this concept over the years in different ways; the idea that a woman should be beautiful, but modesty and self doubt are imperative. After watching this video I finally decided to piece it all together.

I’m not a One Direction fan and that shouldn’t be too surprising, because N*Sync and (…)

Feminist Lisa Frank is Everything

A few weeks ago I discovered the Feminist Lisa Frank tumblr. For those of you that haven’t checked it out yet, the title is pretty self explanatory; the adorable pictures of cute animals dipped in neon rainbows, with various feminist quotes accompanying them.

We don’t actually get told too much about the awesome creator of this tumblr, but the description is (…)

I’m a Beyonce voter? Oh, okay!

Hey, anytime you want to put me and Queen Bey in the category I’m down. It wasn’t originally meant to be something positive, *ahem*, I’m looking at you Fox News, but I’ll take it.

Elizabeth Plank handled Republican’s insults and pandering toward women pretty well.

Also, as a reminder. We’ve already seen TONS of sexist commentary about a woman running for president, (…)

Throwing Shade at 50 Shades

  It’s taken me a long time to work out what I wanted to write about “50 Shades,” and to be honest, I still don’t know where to begin. I have so many issues with the story and its popularity, but for now I’ll touch on three things in general.

1) The movie, judged simply as a movie, was fucking terrible. (…)

Here We Go Again

 So, it was a thing this week when Kaley Cuoco said she wasn’t a feminist. By that I mean, a lot of people had stuff to say about it. Which pleases me, because I like that people get called out for misusing words, especially the one that defines me a lot.

As for what Cuoco said? When Redbook asked if she (…)

Keep on keepin’ on

Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday. I’m presently relaxing in my flannel jammies, munching on biscotti and sipping on some yummy wine. While waiting for dinner to be ready (in the grand tradition of Christmas Eve my mom dismissed me from the kitchen pretty early in the evening) I was scrolling through Facebook and found this cool (…)

In lieu of a proper update

Hey everyone!

Due to 60+ hour work weeks I haven’t been able to give JRab the love it deserves, and I plan on remedying that soon. I have the same amount of hours in the day as Beyonce, so I don’t want to make excuses.

Every day I see things that I have an opinion on (shocking, I know) that I would (…)

A Word About Bill Cosby (but mostly words about rape culture)

Before we begin with the subject at hand, full disclosure, I have never been a fan of Bill Cosby. I’m not okay with a bunch of the racist stuff that he’s said

It took a lot of willpower to not use a rude meme here.

over the years that completely ignores systemic, institutionalized racism and blames black culture for inequality.  I’m especially not (…)
