The May 2007 issue is out! The theme is getting women “out there” in gaming journalism, and we have some great articles about that. We’re currently looking for submissions for our June issue. Here’s the call for submissions: Submsision deadline: … Continue reading
Inspired by this post at Feminist Gamers and this post on The IRIS Network forums, I decided to take an old post of mine and turn it into a bingo scorecard. Basically the rules are that when you see a … Continue reading
Stories like this BBC News article brought to my attention by one of our readers, Sexualisation ‘harms’ young girls, have been making the rounds in the feminist blogsphere. I am probably not going to do a breakdown of it, as … Continue reading

Weâ€™ve all seen them.
Itâ€™s some night-owl hour and in-between reruns of Roseanne and ElimiDate you see for 30 seconds the uniquely American bazaar of young, thin, often blonde women with flowing hair and large breasts: In some form, you see â€œThe Yes Girls.â€
All-too-discreetly advertising itself as none other than a phone-sex line for men where young women dressed (or undressed, for that matter) in lace and satin seductively grasp their phones, bodies supine with eyes gazed towards the camera whispering lines of â€œWe always say â€˜yesâ€™â€ like they know exactly what customers of the phone-sex line would want to hear in some meta-rape fantasy sort of way.

In a move that is surprisingly good, Glamour has published an extensive and well written article that covers the governmental assault on women’s health. From the FDA to government funded abstinence only ed, the article is a long read, but … Continue reading
