Crunk Feminist Collective Posts Open Letter to ABG Writers

The Crunk Feminist Collective, an amazing community and blog "where crunk meets conscious and feminism meets cool" (who should promptly be added to your blogroll, RSS reader, Twitter/Tumblr dash, what have you, if they're not already there), recently posted an open letter on their Tumblr page from some of its contributors to the writers of the web series Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl...

The 99%: "Money Can't Buy You Class"

A very special thank you to the Countess LuAnn of the Real Housewives of New York for supplying the title to today's post.  I doubt this is what the Countess was going for, but she brings up a good point: what's the difference between having money and having class privilege?  Is there one anymore?

Mom & Pop Culture: Muppet Mania

The Kermit I see is sensitive, silly and sweet. He sings with abandon, despite not having an auto-tuned perfect voice. He talks about his feelings, and friends, and rainbows. Jim Henson created Kermit in the Free To Be You and Me-fueled culture of the '70s, when people were itching for different role models for kids—ones that didn't play into the tired gender stereotypes of previous...

In the Frame: I'm As Free As My Hair

Lady Gaga sang that she was as free as her hair, and she has been spotted in a dress that appears to have been made from her leftover wigs. It's certainly a talking point, especially in light of her song lyrics which associate freedom with the choice of how you wear your locks.

Thursday Night 'Lights: End of the Lineup As We Know It

Take a look at the photo on the left. Starting in January, Jeff Winger will be replaced by Liz Lemon. No wonder he looks so dismayed in the picture!

In case you haven't heard, Community is being pulled off the schedule indefinitely (boo) and being replaced by 30 Rock (yay for that, at least). Whitney is swapping places with Up All Night, and...

Bitch in a Box: Holiday Gift Guide, Calendars Edition!

There are few things nicer than waking up on the first day of the month to flip the page on the wall calendar (you did that yesterday morning, right?), especially when it's a beautiful calendar that was picked out for you by a dear friend. Selecting the right calendar for a friend or family member is a very important decision, as your calendar recipient will be looking at that thing all year...
