Bookish Beast Contributor Bio: Tyler Cohen

In case you were wondering what other awesome work you have to look forward to !!THIS SUNDAY!!— we present: 

Tyler Cohen!


Tyler is a cartoonist who works with multiple voices: surrealism, true vignettes around being the feminist mom of a young daughter, and journalistic bits about language.


All these voices weave together in the Primahood books to offer both an emotional journey and an engagement with questions as to what is female.


Tyler will be at Bookish Beasts with the Primahood books and more awesome feminist surreal art, comics and zines. If you cannot make it, you can also find more of her work at

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday

Not only this is problematic for the girls - but it’s also disrespectful to the male students, as if they are wild animals who can’t effectively use their frontal cortex to prevent themselves from pouncing on any girl who shows up to school in tight pants. 

Let’s create a culture where we expect a little more from everyone, okay?

The rise of ethical porn: She chooses her co-star and the fantasy ⇢

While still an emerging genre, feminist porn now makes up approximately 10 per cent of the multibillion-dollar porn universe, says Carlyle Jansen, founder of the Toronto sex shop Good For Her, which puts on the Feminist Porn Awards, now in their 8th year and growing in popularity annually. It’s a sign that the tenets of feminist porn are beginning to bleed into the mainstream adult industry. There is also substantial overlap between feminist directors, producers and performers working in the mainstream adult industry, including alongside big companies like Wicked, Vivid Entertainment and New Sensations. It’s estimated that 65 per cent of the actors now act in both alternative and mainstream films.

Teenagers already know about sex. Let's teach them what a relationship looks like ⇢

Back in 2011, one researcher for the BBC Radio 4 documentary Teenage Kicks said memorably that she kept coming up against the assertion among teenagers that certain abusive behaviour - such as “slut-shaming” on the internet, “back-handing” a girl if she refuses your advances, or passing your girlfriend around your friends for sexual favours - is “technically wrong, but normal”, so hardly worth complaining about. This means that we have to encourage open discussion about abuse, and hold lessons and lectures and seminars about abuse, rather than hoping that any checklist will do the work for us. Identifying abuse is the start - but building relationship education properly into the national curriculum is the only way to seriously target a culture of ‘normal’ violence, assault and mistreatment that starts in the playground and escalates over a lifetime.
