lower-income people tend to be “hoarders” and richer people are able to do more “minimalist” living spaces. if u don’t have much, you will hold onto any little thing that comes across your way. you got a new tv, but you still keep the old tv because you know things can break. you keep extra boxes of macaroni and cheese lying around because there will be a week when you don’t have money for groceries. you hold onto your stacks of books and clothes for dear life. those are your assets. physical evidence of where your money’s gone. it’s hard to get rid of it. the bare wall is terrifying when you don’t have much.

The Lilith Fund provides money to low-income Texans who need abortions and can't afford them. Texas is repressive and terrible to poor people, especially women and people of color. These laws are unfair. This bowl-a-thon is how we raise money to help those people.

Reminder: This week a donation of $20 or more gets you a box of homebaked deliciousness. i want to feed your face good stuff, but even more than that, I want to help empower Texans who need abortions and can’t afford them on their own. Your donation goes directly towards helping someone exercise control over their life and body. Please share.

Pop Goes the Grrl: Nuvabling: the birth control that takes a limo instead of the city bus


You never want to pile expectations too high on Justin Timberlake, so I was pleasantly surprised by how solid this episode of SNL was. Not because he isn’t awesome (he is), but ya know, he makes missteps, too.

He wasn’t in this skit, but I think the commercial for Nuvabling was my favorite…

Would you be surprised if I told you that, according to the Bechdel Test website, only 5 of IMDB’s Top 250 passed all three Bechdel criteria in 2010? Are we really asking too much of the film industry to include two women, who talk to each other, about something besides a man? Surely this is the bare minimum of female representation we should expect from films. Women populate more than half of the world and yet we are still so often consigned to being the ‘love interest’ whose lives centre wholly around the male protagonist even to the point where the majority of mainstream films in our cinemas seem to find it impossible, in their entire run-time, to imagine a world in which a woman conducts a conversation that is not about a man.

What do bowling and abortion funds have in common? The National Abortion Access Bowl-a-Thon! Join us today.

Just a reminder: this week, I’ll send you a box of delicious baked goods, directly to you, as a thank you gift for your donation that in turn goes directly toward helping Texans access their reproductive rights. Without access, there is no choice, and without a donation, there are no cookies.

"Things like racism are institutionalized. You might not know any bigots. You feel like “well I don’t hate black people so I’m not a racist,” but you benefit from racism. Just by the merit, the color of your skin. The opportunities that you have, you’re privileged in ways that you might not even realize because you haven’t been deprived of certain things. We need to talk about these things in order for them to change."
