Showtime's The Affair is the latest cheating narrative to grace our screens, with its stark, dazzling cinematography, languid pace and dramatic Fiona Apple-penned theme song. The final episode of the season airs tomorrow, so we thought we'd do a roundup of our favorite (and least favorite) onscreen affairs and break down the sexual norms they subvert, reinforce or bypass altogether.

New feminisms are coined constantly. Blink, and you’ll miss one. From sex positive feminism to transnational feminism and radical feminism to anarcha-feminism, one qualifier tacked onto the F-word can change everything.

According to a recent article by Suzanne...

You've probably encountered the viral campaign for #freethenipple that's been percolating over the past year. In anticipation of the new film inspired by real events, celebrities from Cara Delevingne and Lena Dunham to Miley Cyrus have come out in support of the movie and the movement to de-stigmatize women's bodies.

Earlier this year, psych rock band The Saint James Society (named after the religious group that mailed packets of heroin to combat morphine addiction) and director/media artist Juan Azulay took to the Mojave desert to rewrite the way road movie archetypes are mapped onto a landscape seen as a time-folding canvas.

Challenging the systemic sexism and racism of the art world has arguably never been more important. While Art Basel Miami is still dominated by the buying power and the work of straight white men, this year's offerings seemed to include more shows and events exposing the work of queer artists, feminist artists and artists of color. From Fade to Black and #ihaitibasel to Milk...

Understandably, Rebecca Traister wants to keep it respectable, but since I'm not writing for The New Republic and since it's the holidays I'm giving myself the gift of tossing respectability and caution to the wind, and just letting my imagination run free...America has a dick problem....

On the other hand, there are thousands of small businesses not owned by the white, male oligarchy that you can support if you're in the shopping mood. Here are a few of...
