Bring back the feminists of W.I.T.C.H. (Women’s International Terrorist Conspiracy from Hell)! Bring back the feminists of W.I.T.C.H. (Women’s International Terrorist Conspiracy from Hell)! 1969 WITCH protest in front of Chicago Federal Building. Of all the second wave feminists who exploded into action over the 1960s and 70s, no group seems to have had quite as much fun as WITCH—the fabulous acronym for Women’s International Terrorist Conspiracy from Hell.

This morning, as I ventured onto Facebook to see if anything interesting had happened during the night hours, I noticed a picture that a relative had posted. It had a little piggy on it, and generally I like little piggies, so I clicked on it. Then I saw what the picture says (it was one of those e-cards that no one actually emails to each other anymore). “Dear Girls, Dressing immodestly is like rolling around in manure.

From Witches to Dolphins, These Are the Communities That Make Mastodon Great - Motherboard Mastodon is a decentralized, free and open source version of Twitter. Unlike its many alternative social network predecessors, it's very usable—no wonder then that its userbase is accelerating quickly. The "decentralized" bit means that Mastodon is fractured into multiple federated instances. In 2017, perhaps the best way to understand it is that it's a little like Slack.

Why So Many Straight Women Watch Lesbian Porn Over the years, Karen, 35, has established exactly what she likes when it comes to online porn. Three or four times a week, she goes in search of new videos in some of her favorite categories -- Big breast play. Squirting. Lesbian. When she spoke to The Huffington Post, Karen had recently watched a video that hit all of her sweet spots: two women who didn’t have “perky, fake boobs,” but instead looked real, like they could be moms.

How Anti-Fascist Witches Are Mobilizing Under Trump In the days after Trump's inauguration, after the outspoken white supremacist Richard Spencer was punched on camera, the media became entangled in a passionate ethical debate: Is it ever OK to punch a Nazi? several news outlets pondered.
