BitchTapes: Songs I'm Never Going to Attempt at Karaoke Ever Again!

My name is Katie, and I have a really terrible singing voice. I'll admit it. I'm not ashamed. This presents a huge problem, though, because I do love Karaoke a lot, am very, very, very easily embarrassed, and lack the stage presence that makes up for being a bad singer. It should be noted, too, that no amount of alcohol changes any of these factors (well, maybe the being embarrassed part)....

The Dating Game: The Disclose Act

Too often, people worry that if they expose the truth about themselves, the other person won't like them or understand... so they hold the truth back until they're convinced the other person likes them enough that the reality of whatever they were convinced was unlikeable will pass by unnoticed. That's maybe not the best plan.

Political InQueery: Politainment

There is the subject of politics and then there is entertainment. And never the twain shall meet, right? Wrong. So unbelievably wrong. In news of the "please don't record this," it leaked today that TLC—that's The Learning Channel, for those who are television newbies—is doing some crossover Kate Gosselin and Sarah Palin shows. This is not your mother's Law & Order and Homicide: Life on...

Snarky's Cinemachine: Why I Watch What I Watch

The action thriller flick Salt starring Angelina Jolie opens today and I plan to be there for the earliest showing possible (to avoid the crowds and I have tons of grant writing to do this weekend!) in order to vote with my dollars for the kind of movie, which while not perfect, is light years ahead of much of the other big budget releases featuring women this summer.

Hold on to your gag reflexes, feminists, because this is going to make you want to barf: Another privileged, wealthy, white male is walking free after being brought up on charges of heinous sexual crimes against underage women. Yep, it's not just Polanski—now billionaire hedge fund manager Jeffrey Epstein is a free man after serving just one year of bogus house arrest.

TelevIsm: Four things for the fourth season of Mad Men

Mad Men is back on Sunday for its fourth season! I am a big fan (I've written about the show often at Deeply Problematic) but unfortunately I cannot write critically about a season that has not yet aired. Nonetheless, I do have a few specific subjects I want to see addressed in season four. The first two are issues that the show is already addressing quite well, and which I would like to see...

Genderlicious: Looking at "Why Misogynists Make Great Informants"

A lot of folks have been talking about Courtney Desiree Morris' article in make/shift, "Why Misogynists Make Great Informants: How Gender Violence on the Left Enables State Violence in Radical Movements." I read the whole thing over at the INCITE! blog. Starting from a discussion of Brandon Darby, an FBI informant who infiltrated groups protesting the Republican National Convention in...

If you're a procrastinator like me, you probably clicked past our pop-up, read our reasons why subscribing to Bitch is better than buying off the newsstand, retweeted our special $19.96 price, and perhaps even fantasized about what you'd buy with a $25 gift certificate to Powell's... but never actually got around to subscribing, thinking you'd do it...well, someday.
