Xena Is Out!

“Xena: Warrior Princess” is set for a new production, one where she’ll get to explore her only-hinted at relationship with her sidekick, Gabrielle.  Something’s in the airwaves with all these reboots of T.V. shows.  This one looks like it may be a good one, though. From our expert on Intergalactic Love, Tom.

Just Like A Cuppa Tea

This is a incredible piece on “Consent.” It’s long and drawn out, but I will put up and even welcome it because it is brilliant. Anita, thank you for sending it.

Insta Animals

The amazing details of jobs and income of adorable Instagram animals. Some modeling fees are reaching $2,000 an hour. I don’t know about the rest of the Bad Girls, but I feel Toots could step up her efforts. Oh, yes, I know I haven’t put her on instagram, so it’s a tiny bit like the ball is in my court. Thank you to our animal kingdom reporter Christina.

Why Hillary Matters

Here is a really good post on women and change from Helen of Helen and Margaret. It’s longer than Helen’s usual column and worth reading every word. I think we should take turns telling young women just what Hillary did for all of us.

There is a reason big girls don’t cry. We haven’t the time.

Female Dialogue

From my tireless north/eastern correspondent Christina. I am glad that I didn’t take on the task of counting the number of lines spoken by female characters in Disney movies… I hope those researchers have strong coffee.

Politcal Rap

Did Sarah Palin’s performance art confuse you, too? The New York Times did a bit of translating for us.

Maybe she’s to blame for Trump’s second place in Iowa this week.
