Hell Yes To This Documentary Series About Cosplaying!

YouTuber Todd Kenreck of Invader Boom has begun a documentary series on cosplaying called “Cosplay Boom,” the first episode of which has been released and future episodes of which depend on Kenreck’s fundraising efforts through crowd-funding site Patreon. The first episode is really, really cool: It’s titled “Origins” and it’s a series of interviews with [...]

In Honor Of “Mean Girls” Day, The Smithsonian Has Been Tweeting Movie References All Day

There are about a million and one reasons to love the Smithsonian museums, but I guess one of them is their Twitter account, which is run by someone who’s apparently incredibly fetch. I don’t know if you knew that today is “Mean Girls” Day (yes, it’s a thing), so the Smithsonian Twitter account has been tweeting [...]

Take These Poets’ Sex Advice

So I kind of hate admitting it when a piece of culture cuts straight to the core of everything that hurts me because I’m afraid that admitting it publicly will allow someone to use it to hurt me worse, but I love this slam poem so much — and that’s not something I expected to [...]

Movies I’m Obsessed With: Little Shop of Horrors

One summer I worked as a group leader for a 3rd grade class. I am responsible for all of their lifelong obsessions with Little Shop of Horrors. A screening of Little Shop of Horrors was on the schedule for the whole school until some younger kids got too scared during Coraline and an adult got around to rewatching Little Shop... Read More

Siskel And Ebert Made The First “Tropes Vs. Women”

So it turns out Siskel and Ebert were cool as fuck: In this 1980 episode, they address the rash of exploitation horror movies released in the very late 70s and early 80s – and continued through the 80s — that used violence against women as the foundation for the film. I love the horror genre, [...]

Food Blog Thug Kitchen Is Run By White People Who Think The Word “Thug” Is Funny

The creators of the vegan food blog Thug Kitchen are white and excuse me but I’m completely unsurprised. The Washington Post is saying that it doesn’t matter, and Roxane Gay is bringing up the important point that it speaks volumes that a lot of people heard “thug” and immediately thought “black.” And I get that, [...]

15 Kickass Lena Dunham Quotes To Celebrate Her New Book

Lena Dunham’s first book, Not That Kind Of Girl, releases tomorrow, and The Frisky staff is excited. If the book is anything like the writing she’s put out into the world so far, we can expect a smart and honest take on experiences that are so wildly universal that we’ll be scratching our heads wondering why [...]

What Disney Movies Taught Me About Being Gay

Ursula from “The Little Mermaid” is almost certainly a lesbian, according to stand-up comic James Adomian, who lovingly refers to the iconic Disney diva in a recent viral bit as a “big dyke with a butch haircut.” Adomian, who is openly gay, doesn’t believe that Ursula deserves the negative treatment she receives in the movie. “Every [...]

Surprise, Surprise: Elite Daily Wants You To Take These White Guy Climate “Brotesters” Seriously

What’s a brotest, you ask? Oh, you don’t ask, because you immediately get the idea? Let this red-Kool-Aid-swilling Reagansexual elaborate anyway: “It derives from when we see evil in the world, and bros are sent to fix it.” He’s referring to the People’s Climate March, by the way. ?_? So, this is a bunch of [...]

The Soapbox: “Smug” Is Just A More Polite Way To Say “Bitch”

Gwyneth Paltrow, who loves juice cleanses and is responsible for bringing the term “conscious uncoupling” to the mainstream, is no stranger to insults. The skinny, rich, blonde Hollywood star gets plenty of flak for her lifestyle brand GOOP, where she sells eco-friendly nail polish and monogrammable reclaimed-wood skateboards while sharing stories from her fabulous life [...]

Pioneers, Playing Dress-Up, And Katy Perry

When I was in the third grade, our school hosted a Famous Pioneer Day. I’m guessing on the name; I actually don’t remember the name of that costume-themed day, but nonetheless it was a day to recognize the early American (white) pioneers. I was extremely motivated in dressing up because of the costume contest. I’m not sure what convinced her... Read More

The Millennial Is Dead; Long Live The Millennial

So I guess that Gen Y has gone straight from being whiny, entitled dickheads whose only redeeming quality was our entrepreneurship, to being irrelevant and also apparently never really that entrepreneurial in the first place, according to Salon. I guess Gen X, the Boomers, and the Greatest Generation can all breathe a sigh of relief [...]

Frisky Eats: 10 Stews To Make Your Fall Cozier

It’s 65 degrees out in Chicago, and that means it’s STEW SEASON! I get really excited about stew because of the variety of accoutrements you can eat with it — rice, couscous, chips, crackers, bread, potatoes. Plus it’s basically thick soup, which is the best kind of soup, with a lot of meat in it, [...]

Frisky Rant: What’s So Funny About Forcing A Woman To Kiss You?

A bunch of obviously misogynistic “pranks” have been circling my Facebook newsfeed for a few days now and it is just pissing me off. In one particular video, that really can’t be labelled as a prank because there is absolutely nothing funny about it, a young man walks up to a random woman, asks a [...]

Buzzfeed Asks What It’s Like To Be A Woman On The Internet

Big hint on this video: Don’t look at the comments. Buzzfeed Yellow interviewed nine women writers, podcasters, bloggers, comedians, journalists, and artists to talk about their experience with online commenters. I mean, I think we all know where this is going, because if you’re here, you’ve probably read about this in the past. It’s just [...]

Hilary Duff Would Totally Be Into A “Lizzie McGuire” Reunion

“I love it! I would be totally open to it. My schedule is a little busy right now. But um … why not? I mean, so many people loved her. I loved her. Honestly, working on that show, I got so strong with my physical comedy and all the things that they would throw at [...]

Sex Like You’ve Never Seen It Before: Through An MRI Scan

This video from Vox shows magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans of human beings doing all kinds of nifty things, like blowing a trumpet, drinking pineapple juice, giving birth, and even having sex. Watching a penis thrust into a vagina — or what I assume was a vagina — is far less erotic than you think; [...]

Watch LisBug’s “Shake It Off” Parody About YouTube Comments

This parody of Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” from YouTuber LisBug — about the crappy comments on her YT videos — is just what I needed to see. I’ve only just started bothering with YouTube and have gotten nothing but gross comments on my videos. These, for instance, were posted on a video about how [...]
