In August, BBC radio personality, Alex Dyke, took on breastfeeding as a topic for his show, and it didn’t end well. It started because a mother nursed her hungry baby, next to him, on a bus. It ended when he was suspended after his rant, which included comments about how “unnatural” breastfeeding was; about “earth mothers…the ones with moustaches” who breastfeed in public. He even included a warning to women that men don’t like to see breastfeeding and the … Keep Reading!!!
Carey Burgess was sent home from school for dress code violation. Now, the photos and Carey’s response have gone viral. What Carey was punished for is an outfit that is modest even by a certain TLC family’s standards. Yet one teacher decided the shirt was indecent and so Carey’s learning was halted for the day.
Carey, who is student body president, a junior marshal and a recipient of a state wide scholarship was sent the message that what she looks … Keep Reading!!!
In 2013, Casey Jenkins sent the internet into a fury with her performance art piece title Casting Off My Womb, which quickly became known as Vaginal Knitting when video of her art piece hit Youtube. The piece was met with praise, criticism, and a whole lot of angry, cruel comments.
There were thousands and thousands of comments, which were largely negative but also highly repetitive.

A group of women have given us a glorious parody of SNL’s “Dick in a Box”. Their goal is to raise awareness about the chemicals found in feminine hygene products, and the health issues associated with them.
Humour is always a good way to get the attention of the masses when done well, and this one was done perfectly!

You’ve probably heard me say this before – I enjoy saying it all the time especially when I am being interviewed for TV or the newspaper – but I’ll say it again now:
Nipples Are My Specialty
I have perfected altered barbie doll nipples. And it’s your lucky day because I am about to give you my nipple knowledge right here in an OOAK Barbie Nipple Tutorial!
Artist Sarah Levy painted a portrait of Donald Trump using nothing but her menstrual blood. And just to nail her point home she used a tampon as a paint brush. The reasoning behind it is not as far out there as it may sound at first glance.
You may remember that after the Republican Debate a few weeks back ‘The Donald’ made some weird comments about moderator, and Fox news host, Megyn Kelly.

Buzzfeed loves vaginas, and we love them for it. This time they issued a challenge to six women.
Describe your vagina to a sketch artist
Awkwardly pick out your own vagina from the vagina wall.
Of course, these are actually vulvas but “vagina line-up” is more fun to say.
In West Philadelphia born and raised this weather-woman owns those who body shame.
I couldn’t resist, but the only part I know for sure is true about that is that Philadelphia based meteorologist, and mom to be, Katie Fehlinger had an epic response to body shamers.
Katie is 35 weeks pregnant with twin girls and still working (and bless her for that!! I couldn’t even get off the couch or get dressed at 35 weeks with the twins). Who better … Keep Reading!!!
Miley Cyrus gets a lot of hatred piled on her for her clothing choices, or lack of clothing. It’s a constant barrage of people wanting her to be a better role model. Maybe if we listened to what she said we’d realize that she may be eccentric but her words and message are more empowering now than they ever were as Hannah Montana.
There is so much truth in what she says. Bra ads are no problem. They are shown … Keep Reading!!!
As we told you last week, Target has started removing unnecessary gendering in their stores (mainly on toys and entertainment). While they have heard from many presents on this issue over the years, it seems one tweet may have forced Target to take notice and fix its gender signage.
