And second, the game was on a blood red field in eastern Washington. Hard to take that seriously. So real football starts […]

Not that there’s anything wrong with women taking a crack at the matrix. I’m sure most have seen the Hot vs. Crazy Matrix by the genius who posted in it late July. This is a version for women to evaluate men on a Hot and Emotional Unavailability Matrix. Thoughts?

The other day, I heard about this video but I didn’t watch it. Not that i’m not interested in the discussion around street harassment because I am. But because there’s a ton of videos from various sources coming out every other day and it’s a lot to keep up with. Without further adieu, here’s the […]

Trey-Songz-Foreign-Video

  Trey Songz has a new single and music video and it’s poised to stir up some controversy. Not many of us are surprised to see Trey Songz surrounded in a music video by scantily clad racially ambiguous women but you may be surprised by the lyrics of the song. A friend of mine sent […]

AllmenCan-les-hommes-aussi-se-mobilisent-contre-la-misogynie

Last week, my Twitter timeline was flooded with the trending topic #YesAllWomen. At first, I was kind of thrown off by it because I didn’t understand the need (not saying it wasn’t true, but I didn’t see the beneficial need) to divide genders by essentially stating that all women encounter something but not all men encounter […]
