Saturday Vids: Really, Tide?


Props to my English professor for sending our class this video with the commentary: “(This) definitely got a “really?” from me…I find it hard to believe that they can get away with these kinds of gender stereotypes in 2011.” I concur. Really, Tide? REALLY?

Leave Kim Alone!

From: discoverfeminism.com |

  I upgraded my cable package a few years ago and have been keeping up with the Kardashians for a few seasons now. I’m not sure what happened the first few years, but thanks to E! marathons I am certain that I’m up to speed. I have no problems admitting that I’m a fan of the show. It only comes second to my beloved Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane. I thoroughly enjoy watching both shows for very similar reasons:

Guaranteeing Access, One Dollar at a Time

From: discoverfeminism.com |

When Serena proposed the idea of focusing on gratitude this month by honoring pro-choice advocates, I immediately knew who I’d choose: the people that make sure that women who need abortions have the money to do so. Working in either local funds or the funding arms of major organizations is not an easy job.

Thesis on God, Part Two: Heather’s Ontological Argument on the God-Theory

From: discoverfeminism.com |

My views, which oppose arguments for the existence of God, are strictly speaking, against Monotheistic or Polytheistic version of God(s). I accept that God, to others can a be a way to find peace, God is something spiritual to them. I am attacking the idea that God is real, but I do not wish to attack anyone who enjoys a Buddhist or New Age approach to God. I don’t want to attack anyone for that matter, either.

Facebook Page Confusion

From: discoverfeminism.com |

So while trolling facebook I’ve come across the same facebook page over and over again and I still don’t know what it means. It reads, ‘I want a good relationship, not some worthless relationshit.’ I do not know what this page is really about. Ninety-percent of the facebook page has pictures to like and the other ten percent has heterosexual couple’s cute little love stories. It’s not clear as to what ‘relationshit’ means. Perhaps it means abuse? I don’t know, but since there are only white, able-bodied  heterosexual couples being posted about I am guessing the ‘relationshit’ or the good relationship criteria only applies to them.

Support Women Artists Sunday: Maria Bamford

From: discoverfeminism.com |

So, I’m breaking the musician mold this week with something a little different…a female comedian! And not just any female comedian but one of my favorite comedians of all time. I present to you Maria Bamford: Maria Bamford (born September 3, 1970) is an American stand-up comedian and voice actor. She is best known for her portrayal of her dysfunctional family and self-deprecating comedy involving jokes about depression. Her comedy style draws upon surrealism and incorporates voice impressions that good-naturedly mock various character types. Comic Patton Oswalt has called her one of the most creative and original comics working today.

Thesis on God, Part One

From: discoverfeminism.com |

This theory is rudimentary, but it goes like this ‘We can’t prove the non-existence of God because God doesn’t exist.’ Think about it, there is no evidence that God exists, that is why we cannot disprove his existence anymore than we can prove he exists. He may live in the human mind and heart, I would even go as far as to say that in the spirit, but in reality there is no evidence of God.

My Book Review: The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters

From: discoverfeminism.com |

I just finished The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters, overall really good book, but unlike her older books it involved a heterosexual couple. I am not complaining, I liked the imagery. However, [spoiler ahead] when Coraline dies, I can’t help but feel like that was a cop-out. Since Coraline herself is a very strong female character in the story.

All I Really Needed to Know About Accepting My Body I Learned from My Dog

From: discoverfeminism.com |

By Pia Guerrero Last night a woman asked what I do for fun.  I quickly answered, “Hang out with my dog, Kayla.” To that she looked at me a little funny as if to say, “Oh, you’re one of those.” I don’t obsess or coddle my dog, as she wouldn’t have it. And certainly you
