Another day, another weird thing people are doing in the name or image of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. After yet another “Kate likes her own closet entirely too much” scandals, wherein most outlets either critique her or deem her oh-so-relatable simply because she wore a $3K dress three separate times (one for each thousand!), the Duchess is also the subject of another story. One involving her boobs. More
How many times do we need to explain that it’s creepy to sexually exploit dead people? Bettie Page is the most recent victim of this weird-ass phenomenon. More
Even though these “designer drugs” aren’t real drugs, meaning you cannot take them and suddenly find yourself turning into a Birkin Bag or a 2.55 bag, they sure would look lovely poised on your dressing table or in your medicine cabinet. Until one of your friends stole them to consume them in hopes of blowing up. More
What would you think if you heard a group of male artists were using naked photos of women they’d met online in a gallery show without their knowledge or consent? That would be pretty evil, right? There’d be protests, and flour bombs, and not even Vice would defend it (I’m being optimistic). More

Attention, lifelong Simpsons fans! A weird art dude is here to ruin your childhoods by combining it with Anna Wintour and 50 Shades of Grey. And I’m not talking about the colors of her skirt-suits.
In a series entitled “Illustrated Erotic Advice,” Italian cartoonist and illustrator aleXsandro Palombo depicts America’s favorite loutish husband Homer Simpson in a variety of compromising positions with America’s favorite potential ambassador to England. Never mind the fact that she is a person and he is a cartoon character, this series is unrealistic because Anna Wintour would wear white after Labor Day before she’d fuck a fat person. More
The video shows Lady Gaga engaging in the Abramovic Method, which is “a series of exercises designed to heighten participants’ awareness of their physical and mental experience in the present moment.” There’s a lot of yelling, crystals, walking slowly, and being naked. More
Artist Yan Yinhong was assaulted by two men who rushed the stage during during a performance of artist’s “One Person’s Battlefield” – which the New York Times calls “her furious comment on sexual violence against women.” More
What would your favorite pin-up girls look like if they were hot dudes instead of sexy ladies? A: Adorable but ridiculous, if these photos are to be believed. In an effort to examine and de-normalize (I can make up words) the way women are depicted in society, photographer Rion Sabean created the “Men-Ups” project, wherein men are shown in traditional pin-up (girl) poses.

Have you ever wondered what Cat Woman would look like if she were an artsy young purrson trying to make it in the big city, or what Wonder Woman would look like if she shopped at Urban Outfitters? Conversely, have you wondered what you, a stylish young lady, would look like if you were secretly a superhero? Illustrator Elizabeth Beals did, so she drew a bunch of female superheroes from DC Comics as fashion-forward urbanites. (I refuse to put the word “hipster” in the body of a post.) But unlike most things with “hipster” in the name, it doesn’t seem borne out of some haterade-chugging desire to mock the creative class so much as something she did because makeovers are fun. Enjoy these drawings with a clear conscience that they are not part of the problem. And if one of them really catches your fancy, you can buy it in print form. More
Good news if you like video games but hate the patriarchy: video game fans/computer geniuses (nerds?) are reworking video game narratives to up-end the ubiquitous lady-gets-saved-by-a-dude trope in favor of a more egalitarian ending. While on the surface this seems great, it brings up questions of artistic ownership and plagiarism. More
Another day, another rad art project about gender. In an effort to explore the changing dynamics of heterosexual relationships, Spanish photographer Jon Uriarte has taken some striking portraits of men in their girlfriends’ clothes. But unlike the makeup project I discussed recently, this project is more about “masculinity” (and what that even means anymore) than the daily performance expectations placed upon feminized bodies. Writes Uriarte: More
