  1. Here’s Why Everyone Is Mad at This Four-Year-Old Axe Body Spray Ad

    Other than that it's terrible, of course.

    Axe Body Spray has a much-deserved reputation for buying into the worst, most toxic stereotypes about gender roles in an effort to get middle school-aged bros who don't know any better to buy their sickening scents. But this ad in particular, which emasculates men who dare to be friends with women by suggesting they have braids, has been making the rounds on the Internet this morning.

  2. Matthew Vaughn Responds to Concerns Over Kingsman Sex Scene, Blames Humorless Feminists

    Kingsmansplaining?

    Well, this is a bummer. Spoilers ahead if you haven't watched Kingsman: The Secret Service yet, or if you prefer to not sully your day with some grossness.

  3. Why All Those Sexist Complaints About The New Ghostbusters Movie Are Garbage

    I simply love the first Ghostbusters movie, though I know it has issues. It gets lost a little in the last third, and its treatment of women is not exactly that positive (right from the opening, where a professor is targeting a student for sex). Despite that, I’d still argue that the movie contains some of the greatest filmmaking of all time. Okay, I might be biased as I'm a fan, but even Bill Murray agrees. Clearly he's not biased because he's Bill freaking Murray.

  6. Joss Whedon Comes Down Hard On The “Genuine, Recalcitrant, Intractable Sexism” In Comic Book Movies

    Tell 'em, Joss.

    In a conversation with Digital Spy on the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron, two months before the Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel movie announcements, Whedon said the lack of female-led superhero films were inexcusable, and encouraged Marvel to take the lead on lady superhero films.

  7. Study Reveals Male Internet Commenters Don’t Believe Evidence of Sexism in Science, Also Water Is Wet

    Misandry, however...

    Writing for the Internet is a lot like shouting into a garbage pit of despair, especially when readers' privilege prevents them from acknowledging important issues despite the facts.

  8. No, Gillian Anderson’s The Fall Is Not Just “Classy Misogyny”

    It's not sexist to talk about sexism.

    On November 16, Observer columnist Rachel Cooke took the second series of BBC's The Fall to task over her belief that the show was little more than a fetishization of violence against women. Allow me to disagree.
