The things men actually believe about women’s bodies is exactly why men shouldn’t legislate women’s healthcare.

There’s a reason primarily male legislatures shouldn’t be making decisions about women’s bodies. Not all men are woefully ignorant about how female bodies work, but far too many are. It’s not necessarily their fault—our sex education programs definitely need a rehaul—but there’s a basic level of biology that needs to be understood before you open your mouth about women’s healthcare. Or about women’s bodies at all. When men outnumber women by vast margins in state legislatures—85% to 15% in Alabama, for example—there’s a problem, especially when said legislatures are making laws about female bodies. Especially especially when we’ve had actual male legislators actually say things like “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut …

SE Cupp: On Pelosi, Kellyanne Conway takes her sexist cues from Trump

(CNN)This is surreal. On Thursday the President of the United States tweeted a mashup of the Speaker of the House to make it look as if she is drunk, incapacitated or slurring her words.

Moby’s treatment of Natalie Portman is a masterclass in nice-guy misogyny | Arwa Mahdawi

While the vegan musician might not spout misogynistic lyrics, hes no feminist. He dismisses Portmans refutation that they dated as untrustworthy gossip If someone had said the word Moby a week ago, chances are the first thing youd have thought is Dick.

I Tried Beyonc’s Coachella Diet & IDK How She Did It Betches

It goes without saying that none of us are Beyoncé. I am not Beyoncé. You are not Beyoncé. Your coworker with the mug that says “you have the same amount of hours in a day as Beyoncé” is delusional—and also not Beyoncé. If Beyoncé is reading this, then she is, in fact, Beyoncé, but I have a feeling she is not taking time out of one of those precious hours that you apparently also have to read what I have to say. However, if anyone finds evidence to the contrary, please send it my way ASAP so I can ride that high for the rest of my life. Lest you live in a cave in the Appalachians, you’ve likely heard …

Photo by Mario Tama / Getty Images Tens of thousands of asylum-seekers from Central America’s “Northern Triangle,” comprised of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, have fled to America over recent years to escape the region’s corruption, drug trafficking, and gang violence.
