[HEALTH] A Lay(wo)man’s Guide To Understanding Science & Health Journalism

[HEALTH] A Lay(wo)man’s Guide To Understanding Science & Health Journalism

Okay, everyone. Before we go any further in examining women’s health issues, I want to talk a little bit about the common problems in science and health journalism and media coverage. (Shout out to Dr. Vashlishan Murray at Emerson College for teaching me so much of this!)

Typically, science/health news goes through the following cycle:

  1. Research is performed (an experiment, analysis, etc.)
  2. Researc…

For All The Feminist Mothers On Earth Day

For All The Feminist Mothers On Earth Day

Editor’s Note: The piece you’re about to read is a bit different in tone and perspective from some of our work. It’s gritty, honest and powerful. I wanted this voice to be heard as well.  - Lisa Marie Basile

By Karen Walasek

Back in the seventies, when most of my feminist friends went off to challenge the glass ceiling I took the path less traveled to become a radical stay-at-home, home-birthing,…

Nymphomaniac Volume I: Psychedelic, Funny & Gratuitous

Nymphomaniac Volume I: Psychedelic, Funny & Gratuitous

Salon.com

Salon.com

by Pete Spedale
curated by Jackie T.

I thought I knew what I was getting when I saw Nymphomaniac Vol. 1 (of a two-part, four-hour story). The NC-17 rating meant gratuitous nudity; director Lars Von Trier would put a psychedelic twist on nymphomania. It is with great pleasure (pun intended) that I can report that Nymphomaniac Vol. 1is indeed gratuitous and psychedelic, but it is also…

"People put “art” and “life” into two separate boxes. Therefore, the problem is that the Poet in Society is seldom heard or taken seriously at large, because our “box” is the “other” box, the seemingly intangible place that you can opt-out of."

Weekly Tarot With Tif: There Is No Opting Out

Weekly Tarot With Tif: There Is No Opting Out

04/20/2014-04/26/2014

The last weekly tarot advised: “The Ace of Pentaclesshows us a lush garden with a large golden invention, a hand holding a pentacle; the invention rises majestically in the middle of the garden and a light animates from a small pedestal… This weekly tarot is about rejuvenating energy. Look at what you are giving your attention to and be certain that this is what you want to…

A Rough Symmetry: Listening for a Poem’s Golden Tone

This essay was originally delivered as a keynote address
for Naperville Writers’ Group’s National Poetry Month event at Nichols Library in Naperville, IL on April 2nd, 2014.

Oftentimes when poets speak about poetry, they speak of their own work. I am most certainly guilty of this. I’d like to begin a bit unconventionally here, and attempt to remedy that situation. A poet whose deserves more…

Dayum Baby: Should Iggy Azalea Be Writing About Female Empowerment?

Dayum Baby: Should Iggy Azalea Be Writing About Female Empowerment?

Iggy+Azalea+Sweet+IggyAnna Kendrick stole plenty of viewers’ hearts with her Pitch Perfect role so it’s no surprise that many were happy to see her on Saturday Night Live this past week.

I had my eye on a particular part of the show that got me thinking about rap, race, gender and the work of Iggy Azalea.

In one skit, Anna Kendrick plays the Little Mermaid and goes to Ursula (Aidy Bryant) to hand over her voice in…

Why I Became A Total Satanist: Remember Rammstein?

Why I Became A Total Satanist: Remember Rammstein?

When I was about 15, I won my first concert tickets: Rammstein.

Now, this came after the delicate age of Jewel and No Doubt.  Tragic Kingdom wasn’t ‘challenging’ my ‘artistic sensibilities’ anymore, and I’d somehow figured out (by reading Tori Amos online forums) that Jewel’s poetry was bad, very bad, and you shouldn’t read it. I think I secretly liked it. It was the 90s.

So, I had fallen into…

Need A New Haunt? A Review of Gregory Crosby’s Chapbook, Spooky Action at a Distance

gregory-crosby

If you’re going to read anything this year, read Gregory Crosby’s chapbook, Spooky Action at a Distance. It is everything I look for in a poetry collection: challenging, relatable, and intelligent. Gregory’s poems beautifully intertwine lyricism, pop culture, and technology in a way that asks the right questions while capturing our culture’s irony and sense of humor perfectly.

While the poems…

Manic Pixie Body Dysmorphia: A True Story

Manic Pixie Body Dysmorphia: A True Story

By Alexandra Naughton

Editor’s Note: While I typically wouldn’t want to run two stories in the same day (see Lea Anderson’s Pretty Girls Do Eat: The Romanticization of Depression & Eating Disorders) dealing with similar issues, this past week I’ve had several discussions with people about their bodies. Each one of those people (including myself) perceived themselves in ways I couldn’t imagine…
