I ❤️ Reductress
Reductress has been one my favorite things on the web for a while. A satirical women’s news magazine with categories like “Thoughts” and “Womanspiration,” Reductress has skewered everything from rape culture to the “please unfriend me” social media trend. I have to stop myself from “liking” every one of their Facebook posts, like an obsessed psycho.
Some of the best and most incisive send-ups are those that poke fun at the “crazy” stuff women do while actually satirizing the way that women are forced to navigate their personal and professional lives around men and their habits and desires. See “Power-Hungry Woman Asks to Turn Down AC,” which comments on freezing office spaces, women’s perceived bitchiness for stating simple requests, mansplaining, and more.
