"We wanted to make a homage to the love and understanding there is between women," explains Zhala. "I often feel like there’s a commercial picture of women competing with each other but my relationships with women are the most comforting thing I have in my life. I have a great team, they all help me to make my vision reality."

Huge CONGRATULATIONS to my boo, the bold and valiant Roxy Farhat for another gem of a production. Shout out to Kakan Hermansson, Johanna Friedman, and of course the radiantly magnetic Zhala! Nice work y’all.

“There’s no point to a guy yelling, “Hey sexy baby” at me out of the passenger window of a car as it speeds past. Even if I was into creepy misogynists and wanted to give him my number, I couldn’t. The car didn’t even slow down. But that’s okay, because he wasn’t actually hitting on me. The point wasn’t to proposition me or chat me up. The only point was to remind me, and all women, that our bodies are his to stare at, assess, comment on, even touch. “Hey sexy baby” is the first part of a sentence that finishes, “this is your daily message from the patriarchy, reminding you that your body is public property”.”

Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.

Ready? 

Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)

Why Aren't You in Solidarity with Black Women Who Are Victims of Rape? »

I didn’t think it would take as long as its taking to get to measly 1,000 signatures on this petition to revoke the bail of accused serial rapist Daniel Holtzclaw.

Maybe I should have made it an ice bucket challenge and lied and said that Holtzclaw’s victims were blond-haired, blue-eyed white women?

Read the triggering testimony of one of Holtzclaw’s victims, a 57-year-old GRANDMOTHER and ask yourself why there are less than 20,000 signatures on the petition: http://www.buzzfeed.com/jtes/daniel-holtzclaw-alleged-sexual-assault-oklahoma-city

PLEASE sign and SHARE the petition to have this menace’s bail revoked: https://www.change.org/p/gov-mary-fallin-revoke-the-bail-for-accused-serial-rapist-daniel-holtzclaw

Other stuff I post—less important, more frivolous stuff—gets thousands of likes and hundred of shares and comments.

We should be at 20,000 signatures by this point.
