Feminist Flix: You And Your Girl Gang Will Love ‘Itty Bitty Titty Committee’

Plenty of movies out there have underlying feminist themes, but few are as in your face about it as 2007’s Itty Bitty Titty Committee. Directed by Jamie Babbit (But I’m A Cheerleader), the film follows Anna (played by Melonie Diaz), a young Latina lesbian trying to figure things out after being dumped by her girlfriend… Read More Feminist Flix: You And Your Girl Gang Will Love ‘Itty Bitty Titty Committee’

Feminist Binge Watch: How To Survive Life After Mad Men

It’s been over a year since many of us bid adieu to some of our favorite imaginary friends: the cast of Mad Men. It was a bittersweet ending, filled with sad goodbyes, surprising new couples, pleasantly unexpected plot twists, and a semi-ambiguous ending (spoiler alert: he totally came back and did Coca-Cola).

Feels like only yesterday I was traipsing around AOL chat rooms looking for other friends who shared my love of Marilyn Manson (my screen name then was zim96zum, btw).  Anyway, thought I’d… Read More On Twitter’s 10th Birthday: 10 Things I Love Most About Twitter (And The One Thing I Don’t)
