Ray Rice Costumes Are Racist And Make Fun of Domestic Violence, So Of Course They're Super Popular This Year

Pictures of these costumes have been cropping up on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook as Halloween party season goes on. You know, Halloween is a time for scares and shocks, and I feel I have gotten the fright of my life seeing actual pictures of Ray Rice costumes that someone not only took the time to assemble, but that they also felt was a good idea to post on the Internet for other people to see.

It's Beyond Pathetic That Men Are Trying To Silence Emma Watson By Leaking Her Nudes

Over the weekend, Emma Watson gave an inspirational speech at the United Nations, calling on men to join the feminist cause. Video of her speech quickly went viral, because it was awesome (and probably also because it featured Hermione Granger), and by Monday night it had reached nearly every corner of the Internet.

Bad Mom Advice: Teenage Sleepovers Plus I Love Really Women-Hatey Rap Music

I can’t think of a good reason to give up my N.W.A. even though I know that the majority of rap music is derogatory towards women and these young boys today being exposed to music that is derogatory towards women doesn’t help in creating a world where men grow up to be less derogatory towards women.
