Feminist Ryan Gosling Memes Do the Unthinkable: They Make Men More Pro-Women


Oh, hey girl. Those sexy feminist Ryan Gosling memes just did, like, the sexiest Ryan Gosling thing ever.

You’ve probably seen at least one by now: those feminist Ryan Gosling memes where a cute pic of the Gos is accompanied by positive messaging like “hey girl, let me get a hammer so I can help you shatter that glass ceiling”, or “hey girl, the post-feminist fetishisation of motherhood is deeply rooted in classism, but I still think we’d make cute babies.” There are also some less serious memes, like “hey girl, I forgot …

The Rise of Digital Currency: Is Bitcoin Here to Stay?

The Rise of Digital Currency: Is Bitcoin Here to Stay?

Are bitcoins and other forms of digital currency going to change how we do business forever?

We’ve seen a lot of revolutions in the last century. Political revolutions aside, I’m talking specifically about revolutions of technology—from good ol’ refrigerators to smart phones. But none may be as dramatic as the bitcoin.

The six-year old digital currency has been plagued with controversy and scandal, most notably that it’s not backed by gold or silver like our paper currency. And while it may not survive in its …

Plastic Waste Turns into Currency in Developing Countries

Plastic Waste Turns to Currency in Developing Countries

Plastic waste is building up all around the world. And now, in some countries, it’s being used as a currency of sorts.

It’s a pretty brilliant concept: offer people useful services and products for plastic waste they collect from the streets and beaches in the developing world and bring into regional “plastic banks.”

The idea is the brainchild of Vancouver entrepreneur David Katz who created the organization Plastic Bank.

“If we can reveal the value in the things around us, then we can give people the opportunity …

When Beyoncé Tells You to Eat More Vegan Food, Listen Up

When Beyoncé Tells You to Eat More Vegan Food, Listen Up

The Queen of Earth, Beyoncé, says we should all be eating more plant-based foods and she’s making it really easy with a new vegan food delivery service called 22 Days.

The program is a partnership with Bey’s trainer, Marcos Borges. All the meals are 100 percent organic, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, non-GMO and are delivered fresh; all you need to do is plate them and eat up. Reasonably priced (about the same as eating at a vegan restaurant), the more meals you buy, the …

Kristen Schaal of ‘The Daily Show’ Mansplains the Importance of Manspreading [Video]

Screenshot 2015-01-29 14.41.42

Manspreading is taking over New York’s subway system–men hogging two seats by  widely spreading their legs.

But according to “The Daily Show” correspondent Kristen Schaal, it’s justified. “Men make 30 percent more than women, they should have 30 percent more space on the ride to work,” Schaal says, telling Jon Stewart: “You’ve been so brainwashed by this feminized world, you can’t even see everything that men have lost.”

The best part is when she talks directly to Stewart’s balls to remind them that they have lost the freedom once inherent to all …
