Williamsburg’s Hair Metal seems expensive at $60, but is actually below average in New York for a women’a haircut. via Facebook
Women’s hair, as we all know, is both as difficult to cut through as adamantium and as precious to the women’s heads it sits upon as said fake metal is to shadowy government comic book groups. So that’s why women’s haircuts are so expensive around here. They’re so expensive in fact, that New York City is the most expensive city in America for a women’s haircut, at $73, edging out San Francisco by two dollars. They can have this one if they want, though. (more…)
A much cheaper option to get that beard you wanted.
When it comes to beards, you’ve either got it, or you don’t. You can’t do stretches or stick your face in something so you can fight back against what your genes never gave you. Alternately, you could pay a doctor $7,000 to take hair from your head and put it on your face, which cosmetic surgeons told DNA Info is a practice on the upswing, thanks of course to Brooklyn. We did it, everyone, we’ve officially made an unshaven face into a symbol of male anxiety and worthlessness. Reggae horn! (more…)
Downtown San Jose. It’s fine, we guess. via Flickr user kaylan3
Given the fact that the average temperature this winter in New York has been -4 degrees, it’s natural if your thoughts turn to fleeing to warmer climates. And now joining the news that all of the jobs exist on the West Coast comes word from Forbes that San Jose, California is the city in America where women earn the most money. But hey, New York is eighth and there’s no shame in that. (more…)
Like this, but instead of jewelry it’s a dinner from not a fast food place
Dating. Everyone loves the world of dating, because it’s such anxiety-free zone without things like expectations, performance and superficiality to worry about. The one and only thing about dating we can’t seem to solve forever is who pays when two people get together for dinner before having sex in a bar bathroom. Well actually, if research from USA Today is to be believed, stupid dudes are holding on to the idea that they should pay for dinner and drinks. Holding on tighter than they’ll hold their special lady, that’s for sure. (more…)
These nice young doctors want to help you ladies out. via Facebook
It’s barely a week into January, but if you’re like me the chances are you’re already terrified about all of the incidental medical expenses you’re going to incur in the year 2014—especially if you’re a woman with more, ahem, routine requirements. Men and rich people, this would be the time to stop reading recognize the myriad medical procedures your friends/ girlfriends and wives face. But ladies, rejoice: Wednesday, January 8 marks the inaugural Women’s Health Night at the Brooklyn Free Clinic in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Starting tomorrow and continuing on a monthly basis, uninsured women can mosey over to 840 Lefferts Avenue in order to seek out the services of volunteer physicians and gynecologists therein. (more…)
Being a girl shouldn’t mean being relegated to playing with just Barbies and E-Z Bake Ovens. Don’t get us wrong, those things are great, and you can really eat the E-Z bake food. But if you don’t expose a young girl to the idea she can build stuff just like boys can, twenty years down the line, some idiot neckbeard is still going to be talking about how women just aren’t cut out for math and science and engineering. So nip that stupid trope in the bud by buying your niece or daughter (LOL, who among you even has kids?) Goldie Blox from the Brooklyn Robot Foundry.
Goldie Blox is a toy predicated on the idea that young girl will absolutely build shit if you give them a toy where that’s an option. To keep them interested, the building comes attached to a story, which in the case of the parade float, involves building a parade float for a princess pageant. Then they build the parade float, and from the looks of it, the set can also be constructed in other way. Your daughter could make a pretend neckbeard death ray out of the set, for instance, because it’s never too early to teach a young girl the joys of misandry. Goldie Blox and the Parade Float, $19.99 at the Brooklyn Robot Foundry (303 3rd Avenue, Gowanus)
College, as we all know, is expensive. If you’re thinking of having kids, don’t do it, at least if you plan on sending them to college. Because we’re at the point where an increasing amount of women are deciding a good option for paying for colleges are to grab themselves a sugar daddy and just hope the four years of education go really really fast.

Some people really, really love CitiBike. via Facebook
In the summertime, some of us enjoy riding a bike with no shirt on. For starters, more clothing means more gross sweat sticking to you. Also it’s a great way to show off your tan and covered up tattoos and flip off the patriarchy telling you your body isn’t up to their standards. But some people, specifically the people behind the NYC Naked Bike Ride are willing to further, and strip to their skivvies or less to bike around. Why not join them this weekend? (more…)
Ah yes, spring is almost here, which means it’s nearly cotillion season, in which the young ladies of polite society don their kid gloves, helmets, and roller skates and prepare for an evening of drinking, elbowing, and general mayhem. If this doesn’t sound quite like the polite society our antebellum predecessors had in mind, that’s of course because it’s not. This is 21st century Brooklyn, after all. And tonight is the Gotham Girls Roller Derby Derbytaunt Ball, at Littlefield. (more…)
