Feminerd: “Little Lady School”

This week, Fangirls, Feminerd is turning to observe something more from my own life. However, I feel that it’s something that can most likely translate to the lives of many women in our world. Growing up, my incredible mother would teach me little life skills that she would file under something referred to as “Little Lady School”. This so called school’s curriculum consisted of skills that she was raised to believe made a proper lady and that she wanted to pass on to her own daughter. Though these were all very useful tools that I appreciate learning, it always bothered me that they were labeled as things that women must learn.

Its easily one of the best books ever to have come my way.

Villain Chat: Discrimination

I suppose it’s a broad term, Fangirls, within it are multitudes. However, in my eyes, it’s the biggest bad guy there is. There’s no villain out there meaner, stronger, or more prevalent in this world. I like to try to be more light hearted in the articles I write here, but discrimination is something I can’t find myself slapping a brighter tone on. Except maybe a hopeful one, in praying that it one day won’t have such a presence. I’m not trying to preach some peace & love hippie dippy shit, Fangirls. I’m just saying that this shit has got to stop.

Nerds Gotta Eat: Seconds’ Stuffed Mushrooms

Greetings, Fangirls! If you recall, I just read & fell in love with Bryan Lee O’Malley’s most recent comic Seconds. The book was incredible, but also made me pretty damn hungry. I figured with the story’s focus on mushrooms, it was only appropriate to whip some shroomtastic meal to scarf up. Enter these bad boys.

Poor, Poor, Angsty Hungarian by B. Swardlick

Fangirls! No, this isn’t an article about my life. Though with that title, it certainly could be. Nope, this is an article about an excellently hilarious comic that I picked up while at Boston Comic Con last week! I stopped by an awesome table with a lovely & nice woman, where after looking around her grand selection of books, landed on this one. I couldn’t resist the title. Turns out, the book is also fantastic. My only regret is not buying the second part.
