Rape Culture 101: Government (Part 10)

(Editor's Note: trigger warning for this series - rape and violence) In many parts of the United States government officials — almost always men — trivialize rape and sexual violence. There are god knows how many reasons that they do this, but it's my opinion that as men, especially well-off straight white men, they dissociate the risk because they aren't as likely to become victims as many of their constituents are. There is no shortage of quotes I could pull from, especially over the past couple of years, so let's just look at a handful.

Episode 108 - Top Five Female Friendships

This week, our intern, Isabela, joins us to talk about a discussion she recently sparked on the Game on Girl Twitter feed and Facebook page. What are your favorite female friendships in TV, Movies, Books, and Video Games? We got such a great response from our community we decided to do an entire episode about it. We share our favorites and the feedback we got on Twitter and Facebook. 

In Gender Sells, we talk about a Carl's Junior/Hardee's ad and a Jello Pudding ad. One made us smile, and one made us furious. Wanna guess which?
We'd love to hear about your favorite female friendships and your thoughts on these commercials in the comments. 
Until next time, Game On!
Regina & Rhonda & Isabela

Rape Culture 101: Pop Culture – Books and Literature (Part 8)

(Editor's Note: trigger warning for this series - rape and violence) One of the 'fun' things about rape culture is that it tends to weasel its way into almost every aspect of our society and our media. It’s not just movies, music, and public figures who seem okay advocating rape. There are books that do it too. (Thankfully, though, these examples are much harder to come by.)
