  2. 8 Real Life Girl Geniuses You Ought to Know

    No, not Ami Mizuno!

    It’s time to call these girls by name, and give them the respect they deserve. Write these down, tell your friends about them, and – better yet – tell the kids in your life about them, too. Give them someone (several someones!) to look up to, and give their science teachers a break from having to explain why learning chemistry, biology, and physics might be a handy thing to do.

  3. Sexual Agency and Zombie Butts: Why Bob’s Burgers‘ Tina Belcher Matters

    Essay

    If you had told me back in 2011 that Tina Belcher would be my absolute favorite character on H. Jon Benjamin’s new show Bob’s Burgers, let alone that she’d be one of my favorite characters on television period, I would have been … skeptical at best. Mostly I just saw the character design and knew she was voiced by a male comedian and, man, does comedy have a bad history of mocking girl characters who have masculine features and don’t fit perfect feminine molds (cough cough Family Guy cough). But the show took what could have been a cheap running gag of “let’s laugh at the weird girl” and turned her into the best character on the whole damn show. And I’m still kind of amazed that she exists.

  6. A Whole Bunch of Teenagers Tweeted Bomb Threats at American Airlines Because Humanity Is Terrible

    Everyone is the worst.

    You'd think that seeing a teenage girl get into actual real-world trouble for tweeting a vague and incredibly-racist terror threat to an airline would make other people want to stop doing that. Of course, that's a fallacy on your part. Teenagers are not people. They are monsters.

  7. Mean Little Girls: Thoughts On Indie Game Journal

    Essay

    Journal is a game with problems. I was on board with so many things about it — wandering through the pages in a notebook, the shadow puppet interludes, the mystery of a young girl whose beloved diary has gone blank. It’s a simple game, one that revolves around talking to other characters and piecing the story together. I’m normally all for adventure games of this sort, but I had trouble getting into this one. The wandering was too open-ended, leaving me sometimes at a loss for what I should do next. There were incongruous moments where a character would reference a past event, and my character had full knowledge of what they were talking about. Weren’t we supposed to be filling in the blanks together? Apparently not. The effect left me feeling distanced from the story. It wasn’t until the day after, when I started reflecting on the game, that it started to bother me. Really bother me. The more I thought about it, the more I didn’t want to write about it. I wanted to let this one lie. The nameless protagonist of Journal is a young girl, who I placed somewhere between eleven and fourteen. That’s an age range I do not like thinking about. And even though Journal’s girl was wrestling with things that I largely did not, the way she reacted to them left me feeling bruised.

  9. Jesuit High Schooler Delivers Wet Willy on Live TV, May Be Suspended, Judged by an Angry God [Video]

    It's a well-known fact that when you turn your camera on a teenager, they are going to do something stupid. It's pretty much a law of physics, really. Case in point: This student at St. Joseph's, a Jesuit prep school in Pennsylvania, knew he was on live television and, being any high school student anywhere in the history of time, just couldn't restrain himself from taking probably the one opportunity he will ever get to give the dude in front of him a dreaded "wet willy" before an audience of millions. We know that feel, bro.  Thankfully, someone captured this moment of brilliance to share with the Internet at large, and we're delighted to bring it to you below.
