I don’t see their statement making a lick of difference in the gaming industry, and until more female game developers are supported in the industry things will never improve. But how can anyone feel really welcome in an industry where you are hated and threatened simply because of your gender. More
Celeb ladies who happen to be mommies get pretty much asked the same questions in interviews — most of which are variations on these two inquiries 1). Aren’t you panicked as shit about aging? 2). What’s it like to be a mommy? Luckily, Julianne Moore recognizes how lame it is to repeatedly ask actresses about these same novel topics. More
The young men of Issaquah High School in Washington need harder homework or something. Or maybe the difficulty of classes needs to be cranked up a couple notches? How else do you explain that these kids have been carrying on a Who’s Hotter online voting contest for the past five years? Seriously, don’t you have kids have finals? More
I was sitting around this morning feeling a deep void in my soul. I was thinking, Gosh, I wish men would be more vocal about what they thought about women’s bodies. Because, as you know, we don’t get critiqued, picked apart, and held up to impossible standards of beauty enough. More
There is no unwritten law that girl babies have to wear pink and boy babies have to wear blue, and I think this mentality was more popular like 30 years or so ago when parents were all paranoid that people would confuse their babies gender and exclaim loudly when confronted with a boy child “Such a pretty little girl!” Most strangers, when cooing over your baby, actually don’t care what sex it is. They just want to compliment the baby even if it looks like a creepy little monkey because that is what people do More
Most women gain weight when pregnant. This is a normal occurrence considering you are growing a brand new person in your body and in order to grow this person your body requires extra nutrients. But when you are done growing this person you better put your fat ass on a diet because what you really want more than anything is for people to consider you a MILF or to be able to look like a Russian gymnast. More
I have decided the only reason men act this way is because they think the women who follow their social media feeds will all think they are sorta unhappy with their spouses and that they all have gigantic peni and will send them nudes. Or something. More
So even though I’m happy both these ladies are raging against the man-machine, the majority of us can’t really join the conversation because we are busy clipping coupons so we can afford to eat and have the luxury of electricity. More
It shockingly doesn’t matter if you’re a record-breaking singer with tremendous talent and armful of Grammys. Regardless of your sensational career, as a lady, your weight is precisely what some want to bring to the forefront — or rather what Joan Rivers is looking to talk about when it comes to Adele. You know, because there’s so little else you could say about a woman of her talents. More

There’s a tad too much gender essentialism floating around parenting conversations in 2013 and you don’t even need to tune into sexist diaper ads to hear any of it. While some stay-at-home dads are trying to wake advertisers up to the fact that — yes — a man is capable of running a home without burning it down, others are still toting that tired Only A Mother Can Do It All logic. Like Yolanda Foster from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. More
This week on Mommyish, we had two pieces that garnered quite the moral outrage.
Lisa C. Baker, who wrote candidly about her struggle to wean her 5-year-old earned her such admitted ”sanctimommyism” from one reader and many, many others. Another mother of four contributed to our Anomymous Mom column, writing that due to her family and childcare provider’s frankly awesome team efforts, she personally hasn’t changed a diaper in over six weeks. She has since been called “selfish” “a narcissist ” and been accused of “abusing her children,” all for enlisting the help of her spouse, her children, and her babysitter. The comments on both pieces continue to swell with far cruder comments. Yet in the two years that I’ve been with Mommyish, in which we daily cover the atrocities of pervasive rape and child abuse, said stories haven’t accumulated even a fraction of this animosity.
I’m emphatically not OK with this. More
Last fall, Teri James was fired from her job at a Christian college in California when she got pregnant and it became obvious that she was engaging in premarital sex. I have no problem with private Christian institutions having certain codes – I just wish they would apply to men and women alike and be of this century. More
Thanks to some justifiable Twitter outrage Amazon.UK has pulled a line of T-shirts emblazoned with the chipper and empowering message “Keep Calm And Rape A Lot” sentiment printed on them. The online clothing store, Solid Gold Bomb, claims they had no idea they were offering the shirts for sale. Because yeah, most stores have no idea about what products they sell. More
It’s no secret that we’re a big fat nation. Child obesity may be on the decline but what about the rest of us? Science continues to parse together where we went wrong, whether it’s fast food, our computer-fixated lives, or simply avoiding le gym. But in retracing America’s obesity problem and how it relates to women, researchers are fairly certain that a decline in housework has produced tubby ladies. Oh, but wait, don’t get all “irrational” about it!
