Femslash Friday: Carmen Sandiego and Miss Scarlet

Previously on Femslash Friday, we've cut abusive tools loose and given fictional women the keys to direct their own lives. Today I want to talk about a board game character and a pretend lady from a game show for kids that prominently featured a capella music who ...Read More

Femslash Friday: Bring It On

There are times I feel very sure that if I were to let a copy of Bring It On rest against a copy of But I'm A Cheerleader, some sort of lesbian osmosis will take place and I will be able to watch a version of this movie where Missy and Torrance make out ...Read More

Femslash Friday: Bend It Like Beckham

Greetings, loved ones. My first foray into Femslash Friday was so much fun that I had to come back for more.

You can’t discount Marshall Erikson and Lily Aldrin’s two decades of history with a simple handwave when it comes to the How I Met Your Mother-verse. They have one of the healthier, happier marriages currently airing ...Read More

Femslash Friday: Buffy, Faith, and Slayer-on-Slayer Action

If you are a lesbian of a certain age, you know that nothing on television has ever been as formative to nascent girl-on-girl feelings as Buffy the Vampire Slayer. And I am not talking about Willow and Tara. Willow and Tara are lovely; they are attractive and accomplished and their relationship is ...Read More

Femslash Friday: Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn

"Stop in the name of the law!" "Not tonight, baby."
