I feel like women are frequently seen as guests in the comedy world — you know, a kid sister of the “real comedians”. I like the idea of positioning myself as legendary rather than trying to fit in. Now do I see myself like that every day? No, but I think it’s a funny attitude and maybe on some weird, spiritual level, maybe it’s a good attitude.” - Chelsea Peretti

adulting:

Is your friend …

• Unemployed and searching for a job?
• Wanting to find the right someone but hasn’t?
• Trying to get pregnant and having a hard time with it?
• Waiting to hear back from that dream grad school program?

When the thing they have desperately been waiting for happens, they will…

OMG THANK YOU!
I’ve been saying this for months now and people think I’m an ass, I’m so happy that apparently I’m just asking that people adult the eff up and stop asking me how the damn job search is.

pitchfork:

The great Marianne Faithfull’s new collaborative track with Nick Cave, “Late Victorian Holocaust”, is a Best New Track.

Marianne Faithfull does not get enough love in the US. This new song is pretty bleak but I just love her voice, it’s sounded this way for decades now. I can’t wait for her next album.

I’m trying to be more like Wonder Woman.

The Secret History of Wonder Woman is a must-read.  “What would Wonder Woman say about what women have got? Breast pumps and fetal rights instead of paid maternity leave and equal rights? Longer hours instead of equal pay? Suffering Sappho.”

Suffering Sappho is Wonder Woman’s way of cursing the Goddesses.  I am going to start doing this ASAP.

Body Language Expert Amy Cuddy suggests standing like Wonder Woman to feel and look more powerful.  I’m gonna stand like that in my interviews coming up and in life.

“Her situation is very scary legally, because we are seeing the number of clinics dwindle. If women don’t have access to abortion clinics, some will turn to the Internet, and then, will they be charged with a crime?”
Elizabeth Nash in “A Mother in Jail for Helping Her Daughter Have an Abortion” - NYTimes.com (via anniewerner)

This is so disturbing. The judge and district attorney are causing abuse to a daughter by sending a mother to jail for helping her child. Women have no privacy or right to their own bodies. These crazy laws are like witch hunts. I remember my friend telling me in high school that there are certain herbs that can cause termination to a pregnancy. Will women be arrested for buying herbs? US is supposed to about freedom but only for certain types of people.

Watch: “It’s on us” urges the White House in powerful rape prevention video

If a man is preying on a woman who has had too much to drink, it is her responsibility to stop him and her fault if she can’t? No, it’s on us.
That is the message President Obama and Joe Biden are sending today with the launch of their new sexual assault prevention campaign “It’s On Us.”

I love that Mindy loves female friendships, however, I just really want to know why her female friends were axed from her show. Instead of her female friends, we get a new Bro Ob/Gyn every season, it just doesn&#8217;t make any sense. I&#8217;m truly worried for those fictional patients because I wouldn&#8217;t trust any of those dudes with my ginie. Having said that, the season premiere was great and I liked the Chris Messina stripping scenes. The whole one-girl-surrounded-by-a-thousand-bros thing really irks me with &#8220;The New Girl.&#8221; I happened to catch last night&#8217;s season premiere where they all attend a wedding and I related to the dread that can surround them, especially as you get older, but I do not like that show&#8217;s ongoing theme of sex as sport. It&#8217;s out of control. I&#8217;m officially done with football because it&#8217;s too depressing with all of the scandals but I am obsessed with soccer!
