  2. Pandora’s Diversity Numbers Are Mostly Good News for Women, Not So Much for People of Color

    Or, more accurately: lack-of-diversity numbers.

  5. LEGO SuperFriends Project Takes Girly Minifigs And Makes Them Into Heroes

    Everything is awesome!

    The LEGO Friends line of products got a lot of flak from feminist critics when it was first introduced, mostly because it took what was envisioned as a completely gender-neutral toy and turned it into a very tradition-conforming example of femininity.

  10. Chris Evans Suits Up for the Dapperest Ice Bucket Challenge Ever, Plus Lynda Carter, Matt Smith, and More

    We're waiting, Tilda Swinton.

    The MVP for this round of Ice Bucket Challenges ($41 million raised and counting) is Chris Evans, not just for wearing a suit (though thanks for that, sir), but also for putting proper thought into what constitutes "ice water."
