AHCA Failing Memes To Celebrate This Moment

As Robert Costa of the Washington Post reported, President Trump pulled the American Health Care Act bill from the House floor this afternoon. Last night, Trump had demanded that the bill — which has caused significant controversy in both parties, with critics claiming both that it cut too many essential health services offered by the Affordable Care Act and that it didn't cut enough — be put to a vote today, after Republican leaders postponed their vote on the bill on Thursday. As recently as l…

Is It Harmful To Call Trump "Crazy"?

On Thursday afternoon, President Trump gave a notably chaotic press conference that began as a way to introduce his new Secretary of Labor pick, Alexander Acosta, but quickly turned into a series of criticisms of the media, accusations regarding alleged government leaks, and difficult-to-parse lines like “The leaks are real...You know what they said, you saw it and the leaks are absolutely real. The news is fake because so much of the news is fake.” In the press conference's wake, it seemed li…

I Tried Those Beads From '50 Shades Darker'

There are a wide variety of reasons one might end up walking around the snow-covered streets of New York City, attempting to find a store that will sell you tiny balls to shove into your vagina. Perhaps you are a writer who feels like the world needs to know more about Ben Wa balls, the sex toy featured prominently in Fifty Shades Darker. Perhaps you are a staunch sexual health advocate. Perhaps, despite the fact that you are 34, married, and have to use special prescription toothpaste so that y…

The Problem With "Nevertheless, She Persisted"

Like anyone who frequently chooses Twitter over sleep, I was online last night at the moment Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell admonished Elizabeth Warren on the floor of the Senate, stopping her from reading a letter by Coretta Scott King about attorney general nominee Jeff Sessions — creating an instant feminist rallying cry in the process. McConnell said of Warren, "She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted." The words were so arrogant, so sexist, that it …

Emma Sulkowicz's Plan To Resist Trump

The waiting room at Philadelphia's Healing Touch Integral Wellness Center isn't that different from one found at your average therapist's office — it has the same gentle lighting, the same soothingly blank walls, the same waiting room full of magazines that don't seem to have ever been read. The only difference lies on the other side of the office — where, instead of a psychiatrist or social worker, visitors meet Emma Sulkowicz. Sulkowicz — who you likely know from Carry That Weight (Mattress P…

Why "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" Matters

Raise your hand if you have never watched The Mary Tyler Moore Show, and if you took today's news of Mary Tyler Moore's death with a kind of confused sadness — "that's awful, but also, I'm not totally sure who she is?" You don't need to feel bad about that; I'm in the same boat as you, and I'm 35, so I had plenty of time to watch the reruns of the show that were a permanent background noise in my childhood. But I didn't; I was probably off playing with those cars that turned into robots, or some…

The Global Gag Rule Will Defund These Organization

On Monday, President Trump reinstated the Global Gag Rule, an executive order that prevents international health organizations from providing abortions to patients, mentioning abortions to the people they treat, or lobbying against local abortion restrictions — and if they do, they will not receive U.S. foreign aid (hence the "gag"). The Global Gag Rule was first instituted in 1984 by Ronald Reagan. In the decades since, it has been immediately repealed by every Democratic president upon taking …

Can't Attend The Women's March On January 21st?…

On January 21st, more than 200,000 people plan to take to the streets of Washington D.C. to participate in the Women's March On Washington. Organized as the largest demonstration yet in response to Trump's many negative comments regarding women, people of color, people with disabilities, and other marginalized people, the mile-plus march will begin at 10am on Saturday and last several hours. 386 satellite marches, for those who want to march but can't make it to D.C., are currently scheduled to …

9 Small Feminist New Year's Resolutions That Make…

When it comes to choosing New Year's resolutions, we usually default to the familiar. Every January tends to elicit the same old promises to start saving more money, sign up for a foreign language class, take up a new hobby, or learn to cook some recipes that don't include the words "microwave on high for 30 seconds." But while those are all worthy goals, 2017 is going to be a different kind of new year — specifically, a new year that will bring us a new presidential administration that seems in…
