So Fangirls, this week we’re focusing less on social issues for women, and more on some physical ones. No matter how united & non binary we want gender to be, there are health issues associated with your sex* that stick them selves more to one side. Women are more at risk for some illnesses than men, but luckily, we know what they are and can help make it so we never have to battle then.
Greetings, Fangirls! I’ve wanted to talk about this topic for a while, because it’s certainly something that needs to be talked about. As a 20 year old, talk of casual sex seems to be all around me. Especially with things like Tinder booming in popularity. I love that people are exploring new things & people, and not being afraid to have a lot of sex. But, I do worry that people aren’t going about things in a completely safe & sex positive way.
Yep, I stole Kyle’s title a little bit. Oops. Fangirls, Connecticon is so great. I had so much fun, met so many awesome people, and already can’t wait for next year. It was great to see old faces & familiar vendors & events, and get involved with a great handful of new people & things as well. Connecticon 2013 was my first con, and it was great to have 2014’s Connecticon still bring along some new experiences too.
While perusing the library the other day for something Bat-tastic, I discovered something both unknown and unexpected. In the early 2000’s, a television series was made, only one season unfortunately, about the Birds of Prey. Well, sort of.
Earlier this week, I came across quite a different comic that brought a smile to my face. It’s not often that I come across older comics in general, but especially ones that have both lovely sexual content and strong female leads. Barbarella is like a dream come true, Fangirls.
Fangirls! I decided to do a different sort of recipe this week for some of our smaller Fangirls. These teething biscuits are super easy, and definitely baby approved. They’re a magical, very useful treat for tiny ones that even fairies couldn’t dream up.
Fangirls, late yesterday I found this band entirely by accident. I nearly dropped my laptop, and in catching it, hit the mouse pad, and ended up on The Roches Spotify page, and began playing this song. I’d never heard this band, but was happy I had found this song by such freak accident. The sister trio pack a powerful punch of unique harmonies that I’m finding I can listen to all day.
