Fangirls, I never saw myself as buying period panties that I considered “fancy.” Period undies have always been undies that it isn’t a big deal if they get bled on, because even with pads and tampons, it’s a possibility. But at the end of December I said to myself that since I’m trying to do better for myself this year, I may as well try doing something better for the environment too, and I ordered myself a pair of Thinx.
Fangirls, you know how I made a rad list of the things I was going to do, and I tried to keep myself organized? It didn’t work. As soon as I got inside, I was reminded that SPX is huge and there are so many amazing creators, it’s easy to get overwhelmed.
Fangirls, I’m a big fan of television, children’s shows in particular. I love to watch cartoons; I get attached to the characters and fall in love and feel heartbreaker and I just want to hug them all. Steven Universe is a show by Rebecca Sugar that is on it’s third season, and I can’t stop watching it. I don’t have cable, so I actually watched it all on Amazon Prime at a friend’s house, before going home and buying it all on iTunes to rewatch on my own. I’m currently on my third watch of the show, and I’m still amazed.
Fangirls, I’ve had a big issue with this for a long time. It’s considered inappropriate for women’s bras to be visible in any way, including the strap. On one hand, I can totally understand it, but on the other, it really pisses me off.
I think it may be an unfortunate testament to my race that I only first heard this term a week ago. However, contrary to how it appears, white feminism isn’t about being white.

White feminism is all too familiar to all of us, even if we don’t realize it, and it makes it a lot more difficult for equality to be achieved at any level. Read More »
Fangirls, I know we’ve discussed the importance of having female role models in the nerd related media before. Today I would like to talk about body type representation, because it’s something that can be extremely difficult to find for someone of my size.
It’s that time, Fangirls! Time to enlighten ourselves about STDs and how they seem so big, bad, and ugly but that we can fight them with the power of awareness. And how we try to make talking about them not so lame or scary or like we’re sitting in a high school health class. Huzzah! Have no fear of the Clap!Read More »
