Fem-Focused Fashion Week Round-Up

Fem-Focused Fashion Week Round-Up

NY Fashion Week doesn’t always get looked at with the most female-positive set of eyes. In actuality, the broader issues of sexualization, starvation and capitalization are obvious topics that loom about the fashion and beauty industries. But in every public platform with avenues of presentation, there are opportunities for artists, [...]

My Body Was Wrong for Dance and I’m OK With That (Thank You, Misty Copeland)

My Body Was Wrong for Dance and I’m OK With That (Thank You, Misty Copeland)

I was lucky. I was never told my body was wrong, but I also never realistically considered a career as a ballet dancer. When people ask if I played sports when I was young, I can safely answer that I grew up as a dancer. My childhood was consumed by [...]

Yoga Woman: On The Feet of Women Warriors, Why I Touch Them, And Why I Want Them Farther Apart

Yoga Woman: On The Feet of Women Warriors, Why I Touch Them, And Why I Want Them Farther Apart

by Jessie Horness At the end of many of my yoga classes, I give a little final adjustment. Often it’s just a mini-shoulder massage. If I have time, however, the attention to the resting, hardworking bodies in front of me is more complete, beginning with a touch to the feet. For my students, [...]

Would You Like a Breast Bra to Match Your Vagina Panties?

Would You Like a Breast Bra to Match Your Vagina Panties?

Being the women’s parts and period nerd that I am, seeing these female reproductive system panties floating around the intertubes made my uterus-shaped heart skip a beat. Now that I know there’s a breast bra to match?  I will take 7 pairs, please! Sadly, none of us will be receiving [...]

Holy Cow! You’re Nude! At Least Buy Me a Fritter First!

Holy Cow! You’re Nude! At Least Buy Me a Fritter First!

Time marches on, and so we continue to add to the calendar different days of celebration both nationally and internationally recognized. Now, these might not get the recognition of the larger religious, exploration-based or historically definitive holidays, but we find it fun to revel in the more “interesting” and “joyous” [...]

Why Kacy Catanzaro’s Amazing “American Ninja Warrior” First Lady Domination Made Me Happy, Proud, and a Little Pissed Off

Why Kacy Catanzaro’s Amazing “American Ninja Warrior” First Lady Domination Made Me Happy, Proud, and a Little Pissed Off

She’s the first woman to complete the finals course, but was it really a big win for women? I watched this “live” on Monday night, because I admit to watching “American Ninja Warrior” (summer shows are slim pickins’!) and was almost moved to tears. I thought maybe it was just [...]

Why Do We Shave Our Hairy Legs, Anyway?

Why Do We Shave Our Hairy Legs, Anyway?

Why do I shave my legs? Good question, because I hardly do it. Maybe that’s because when my legs are hairy it’s not that noticeable. Or maybe it’s because I’m lazy. (It’s both, by the way). But it’s also because a part of me (my legs and armpits?) says eff [...]
