Vag Magazine is a new web comedy created and written by Leila Cohan-Miccio and Caitlin Tegart. Vag Magazine takes place behind the scenes of Vag, a hipster third wave feminist magazine a la Bust. Vag Magazine’s cast is basically a who’s who of New York’s up-and-coming female comedians like The Big Gay Sketch Show‘s Kate McKinnon and Shannon O’Neill, who was recently named one of “Three to Watch” by Time Out New York.
Here on the FBomb we talk a lot about pop-culture, including women and movies. The Bechdel Test addresses this very topic and is something every good teenage feminist should be informed about. Once you’re aware of the test – and actually use it to analyze films – it’s CRAZY how many movies are male-centric. Watch, learn and support women-centric films!
I love Pink a lot – I think she’s a pretty awesome individual – and while I realize there are some issues with this song (like, maybe we shouldn’t hate on celebrities or other “stupid girls” even if we dislike their actions and what they might stand for) I think overall it sends a positive message. Outcasts, girls with ambition, that’s what I want to see!
Saturday Vids: Feminist Attack on Snack Factory’s Pretzels
In case you haven’t already seen Snack Factory’s disgusting new ad for their “thin” pretzel crisps, have a gander:
Disgusting, right? Well, thankfully, one guy decided to fight back with creativity and the facts (you CAN be too thin):
I love many things about this video. Primarily, that somebody responded intelligently to these ads and is attempting to raise awareness in the face of the media clearly doing their best to dispel the truth about eating disorders. I also love that a guy did this – unreasonably high body image standards in our culture AFFECT MEN and I’m so happy this guy is raising awareness on that front – both in the facts he presented and just the basic fact that HE took action.
