Date: January 10, 2015 | Posted By: Stacey
If you’re in the Bay Area, you won’t want to miss the Alien She exhibit at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (here until January 25, 2015). Curated by Astria Suparak and Ceci Moss, it is “the first exhibition to examine the lasting impact of Riot Grrrl on artists and cultural producers working today.” About-Facers sure Continue reading


I’m “All About That Bass” AND Treble

Date: October 22, 2014 | Posted By: Stacey
Like lots of women, I’m aching for more body positivity in pop culture. Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass” appears to be a great example of a body positive song with lyrics such as, “I see the magazine workin’ that Photoshop / We know that shit ain’t real” and “‘Cause every inch of you is perfect / From the Continue reading


An open (love) letter to Jennifer Lawrence

Hey, J. Law (I can call you J. Law, right?), How are you doing? You’re probably busy getting ready for your upcoming Catching Fire premieres (all of which you will probably look fabulous in), so I just wanted to take a moment and tell you how totally awesome you are. Recently, the Internet has been Continue reading

Hairy armpits for everyone, please!

Date: September 11, 2013 | Posted By: Stacey
You know what disgusts me the most about women with body hair? People who respond to it like it’s gross, dirty, unfeminine, and/or unacceptable. In July, blogger Paloma Goñi wrote an article called “I Don’t Shave” on HuffPost Spain (which was translated to English for the version I refer to here). It’s amazing what a Continue reading

“i love u also i want u to let me squeeze ur boobs.” Another quote from Emily Lindin’s The UnSlut Project reels us in. We covered this project in early May, but just to bring you up to speed: Emily was the sixth grade “slut.” She kept a diary at that time, and decided to Continue reading

From the diary of the 6th grade “slut” — The UnSlut Project

Date: May 7, 2013 | Posted By: Stacey
“I can’t dump him now, because then people would think I am even more of a slut than they already do. How could one mistake cause my life to crumble like this?” Would you publish your diary from when you were a pre-teen on the Internet for the entire world to read? This is exactly Continue reading

Science vs. Dove: Thanks, but we are NOT our own worst beauty critics

Date: April 23, 2013 | Posted By: Stacey
This blog re-published with permission from Kjerstin Gruys, originally from her blog Mirror, Mirror… Off the Wall. So there’s this new Dove “Real Beauty Sketches” ad campaign, and I’m finally ready to say my piece about it. I watched the three-minute version and felt emotions swelling in my chest. I liked this cathartic feeling, so I immediately Continue reading

Girls suck at math and boys shouldn’t wear princess crowns

Date: March 17, 2013 | Posted By: Stacey
Gendered advertising sucks. Seriously. Just last weekend, I was in the grocery store with my partner when we stumbled upon some energy drinks marketed specifically toward women, called Her, which were so uniquely (sarcasm) colored bright pink. Because apparently, all other energy drinks weren’t “feminine” enough, we needed one just for women. Just like we need Continue reading
