From Feministing, an expose of how sexist Jean-Claude Van Damme acted towards a female interviewer.
From the Rachel in WY at the Feministing Community Blog, a fuck-you to the princess fad.
From Alas, a Blog, a video from The Onion about the Nice Guy complex.
From Cruella-Blog, a discussion of how annoying Facebook weight-loss ads are–and how to get rid of them (though the solution is rather annoying).
Tamaura Lomax at RH Reality Check discusses the historical and societal implications behind the sexualization of Michelle Obama.
Renee at Womanist Musings discusses how Prince’s “finding God” apparently consisted of finding a way to criticize gay people.
