So the “joke” starts out like this… a professional female impersonator walks into a public women’s restroom and spies a biological women disrobing in the stall next to him.
He immediately hits social media with an account of what was seen and incredulously details “the biggest maxi pad” he’s ever spotted in his life.
What follows next is a discussion about public humiliation, male privilege, misogyny and why MEN should say out of safe spaces reserved for women.

Mr. Hinton was dragged unmercifully yesterday after he tried to ‘drag’ me online with his ‘REAL WOMEN’ with ‘stank puss’ commentary.

Needless to say, Madison’s impromptu roast and gag didn’t sit well with many “Real Women” and even quite a few gay men who reached out to Khia to add Mr. Timonthy Hinton to the docket.

For many career women, it?s often a struggle to balance family life with their career goals.
Unlike our male counterparts, success for women isn?t only measured by our business acumen, but also by who and when we marry and/or have kids.
For supermodel Tyra Banks, the sting of that double standard has weighed heavy on her heart in ways her fans had never known until she opened up about her fertility issues recently.
In a clip from an upcoming episode of ‘FABLife,’ Banks and co-host Crissy Teigen speak candidly about the societal pressures to marry and conceive. Banks even got an bit emotional when speaking of the topic, stating:
?I just feel like we?re so hard on each other and so judgmental of each other and a woman that is divorced three times is more normal than a woman that has not been married.
I am so tired of seeing on my social media, ?Why don?t you have kids? Why don?t you have kids?? You don?t know. You don?t know what I?m going through,? Banks said as the tears began to flow.
Isn’t it sad how it’s more acceptable in today’s society to be a ‘baby mama’ than to be a woman over 40 with no kids?? *sigh*

A feminist group called ‘Women on 20s’ seeks to remove the image of Andrew Jackson from the $20 bill and replace it with a picture of one of the many illustrious women from American history.
Rosa Parks is one of the finalists in their campaign, which initially consisted of?15 inspiring American women. ?Over 256,000 voters cast ballots over the last 5 weeks to narrow the selection down to 4.
Eleanor Roosevelt, Harriet Tubman and Rosa Parks are the people?s choice and will advance to the final ballot for your consideration. In addition, Cherokee Chief Wilma Mankiller has been added to the final ballot by popular demand in order to include a choice of a Native American to replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill.
The $20 bill was selected because 2020 will be the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment that granted women the right to vote.
So it seems fitting to commemorate that milestone by voting to elevate women to a place that is today reserved exclusively for the men who shaped American history. That place is on our paper money. And that new portrait can become a symbol of greater changes to come.

Many have wondered why those “feminine hygiene products” often portray women rocking flowing white dresses when most would never dream of doing so during their cycle.
There’s also the tendency to show women rollerblading, mountain climbing or bike riding, presumably to demonstrate the ability to move freely while utilizing ‘feminine products.’
A man by the name of Richard took the opportunity to rant on the facebook page of?British maxi pad company about how misleading the advertising for feminine products can be.
In response, Bodyform released a hilarious video berating Richard for destroying the feminine-hygiene industry’s carefully crafted illusions.
Bodyform’s response below: Continue Reading…
